I dont have a salon, but work from home and mobile. I find my most popular treatments are, in order:- waxing, tinting, mani/pedi, nail enhancements, facials & massage. Other treatments that are few and far between are: hopi ec, hot stones, ear piercing & make up.

I think it depends on your area a lot too, obviously high end treatments wont go down well in a less well off area.

What about electrolysis? I do LOADS, and all year round too. Definitely waxing, and the last couple of years people have been having loads of regular pedicure appointments esp in the summer. And eyelash extensions go down well too. Good luck!

Depends on individual salon. In mine, eyebrows are most pop treatment, (and I do loads of electrolysis) but one of my old staff recently opened a salon (located between you and me in Chigwell) and she is really busy with massage and facials, so I don't think you can generalise too much. Also, if you are particularly good at one treatment, you will obviously be busier in that one, which is why I do elect.

Hi, introduce all the treatments you are qualified in and go from there, depends on your client base and time of year, Christmas coming tanning, facials, waxing, nail treatments and nail art. Offers as well can make a treatment more popular. Good luck.

I'd expect that waxing would be your most popular treatment.
However, its best to go with all of the treatments you are qualifed in.
How about finding out what is not in your area and would be useful so you can offer it?

My salon's most popular is waxing, closely followed by spray tanning and nail enhancements.

Whilst your setting up I'd offer all the treatments you're qualified in and maybe conduct some market research to find out the most requested treatments by potential clients, what treatments your competitors currently offer etc

I think it depends on the area where you are based and how you market your business.

I've asked this question loads of time to therapists and it varies widely. For some waxing is their bread and butter, manis/pedis & enhancements for others or it may be facials.

My most popular treatment by a country mile is, bizarrely, eyelash perming.

Waxing, followed by pedicures,tinting and then manicures. Offer all the treatments you are qualified in though as you will find some treatments are more popular at different times of the year.
