Wow! I can't believe it's been a year!

 

Or actually just a little more than a year! Time DOES fly when you’re busy and having fun! When we started this online community in January 2011, of course we hoped it would be popular and useful to esties from all over the country, but it is still so exciting to see more than 3,000 people enjoying the forum. And even some from outside the USA.

 

I love to see all the great discussions, questions, answers, and the other ways you are helping each other succeed, and the…

How is your Salon business doing right now?  Do you feel that your team are constantly cat fighting and causing more drama than reality t.v could ever bring to your t.v screen?  Have you noticed the client retention rate is a big issue?  I have worked in several salons over the years and luckily 98% of the ones I worked at were great and pretty harmonious (as much as it can be in a predominantly female environment) but the 2% that caused me discomfort have become etched in my brain…

Does anyone have any feedback on this??

Looking for some feedback on these waxing consultation cards/posters etc...

I am heading back home to London in a few weeks and i have been asked by a company out there to do some research for them in regards to the U.S market.  They are thinking of bringing their copyrighted products over to the states ... but prior to any big shipments being made they/I are looking for an overall consensus of opinion.

They have posters for the room (to help hide any of those botched wallpaper blunders!) and they also have client consultation forms for waxing and after care…

Why your salon or spa should not double dip wax

Never double dip!  By this I mean that if you have stuck the spatula into the wax pot, then applied it to the area/skin to be waxed, the stick should be thrown away in the trash can immediately. Imagine waxing every client with just one stick and you kept double dipping?  The tin of wax would have traces of blood, pubic hair, and feces (especially if the client didn’t clean up properly!!) It would be a breeding ground for bacteria, which is extremely unsanitary and not fair on the…

What students are saying about Hands-on classes with "The Wax Chick"

Added by Crickett Enos on March 3, 2012 at 11:58am — No Comments

make up

I don't wear makeup (or just shadow and mascara). I should wear make up. I hate applying make up on my face. Does this make me look unprofessional as an esthetician and the aesthetic persona of it all, or do I appear more clean and natural beauty? I could use some undereye concealer, but that makes way for foundaion and then finishing powder and now its a daily routine and wearing it all doesn't come naturally so its NOT a 5 minute spuce up... ugh!

New Dermafiles

I'm super excited to say that I am getting to take over as the sole distributor in the U.S for the Dermafiles!! I love these little tools. They are affordable and effective. I would love to see esthetic schools use them and offer them to their students. Anyone just getting started that doesn't have the budget for a microderm machine should have a set of these. Anyone bored with microderm but needs something good for exfoliation should have a set of these. Even if you have microderm, there…
