    I need a beauty couch that is height adjustable and can be put into a reclinable position and is fairly lightweight. It needs to be suitable for waxing, facials, massage etc. Years since I did mobile treatments and it's only for occasional use but I would like to buy something that's good...

    Black heads on mature skin?

    Which area are the blackheads in ? I would also recommend steaming as mentioned above then extraction. Is your client using suitable homecare ? I wouldn't invest in a machine for one client but if you think it could increase your business and appeal to existing clients then I think...

    NEC Birmingham?

    Im not very impressed with the brand line up this year, apart from a couple of big names there are hardly any of interest to me. It seems most of the well known companies wait until the London shows which is a shame for us in the midlands. To answer your question yes you can buy products...

    Brow kits to retail

    Hi everyone, Haven't been on here for soooooo long :eek: I just wondered if anyone retails brow kits and if so where do you buy them from ? I have seen some in Sallys but the RRP is over £20 and I would prefer something under that. I have sent so many clients to the benefit counter to...

    Beauty Therapy refresher courses

    You could always do a few one day courses to 'refresh' You already have the knowledge and skills so I think you'd be fine with some short courses.

    Setting up time/clearing away time, paid or unpaid?

    I think the original question was forgotten a long time ago lol I can't see why people are getting their knickers in a twist about therapists expecting to be paid for taking coats off etc as that was never what the post was about ?

    Look at my poor little gal's sunburn from her school trip, I'm so angry

    If the school aren't interested I would suggest mentioning to them that you will be going to local/national press. This is exactly the sort of thing I would expect to read in the paper. Don't any of teachers on the trip have any common sense for gods sake ? I can't understand why there is a...

    Setting up time/clearing away time, paid or unpaid?

    If you want her in at least 15mins before then I think you should pay her otherwise I think it would be reasonable to expect her to be in at least 5 minutes before she is due to start clients. As would be the case in other jobs. Realistically it doesn't take longer than 5 minutes to get your...
