Is it RUDE to ask for tips or is it Expected of Us to ask for tips?

Anytime I have a personal service completed, either I ask how I should add the tip, i.e. should I add to the initial total or should I add after the fact, etc. Or, the professional asks me if I would like to add the tip. I’m asking, because I am finally rebooking clients (yea!!!), but they aren’t tipping. My insecurities make me think that they hated the service, but then they are returning.

Stephanie Haynes (The Waxing Diva) class feedback?

I signed up our Estheticians to attend a Speed waxing class focused on Bikini, Brazilians, and body waxing.  Has anyone taken one of her classes or seen her at a wax show?  Just wondering how it was.  This is purely a demo class being held in Cleveland but I'm hoping it can provide tips and tricks for improving efficiency with these services.  Thanks for your feedback!

Article I wrote addressing physicians

I made the case to physicians for allowing estheticians who are well trained in treating acne to take that caseload off their hands, much like a dentist allows the dental hygienist to do the dental cleanings.

Se-Brazil Blue Hard Wax & FREE samples Available Now!

When I decided to create the Se-Brazil wax line I did it based on my experiences with both hard and soft wax. So thats why I always try to create samples so you can try them first and actually see it in action and if it will work for you.


Se-Brazil Blue hard wax launched on July 1, 2012 and the response has been overwhelming. We always give out samples of our hard waxes because I feel its important for a waxer to like the wax they are using, not use it because you…

Up in Smoke - My Personal Thoughts

I just left the hospital after visiting my father, and although I am not in the habit of talking about personal issues on a public discussion forum, I felt compelled to share some thoughts with you all.

Most of you on skincareprofessionals.com are estheticians, and I trust that you know and care how damaging smoking cigarettes can be to the skin. Some of you who have built a close relationship with a client who smokes will, most likely, gently let that client know that smoking…

Happy 4th of July.....

As Americans eat hotdogs and apple pie, I will be doing the same... spending on the boat, spending time with my "Beloved", my son and his girlfriend on the local lake.  

So, everyone, be safe.  Don't shoot off fireworks within city limits, don't eat too much, and whatever you do... don't drink warm beer.     It's just un~american!…
