    Waxing pregnant clients?

    Just going through old posts of mine and saw this reply. I wanted to draw anyone reading now’s attention to the fact that it took you over a year to reply to the thread so it’s hardly surprising that no one in your office could remember advising me at the time! I hope nowadays your staff give...

    Which Smashbox foundation?

    I used to work for Smashbox - from what you say I'd go for Studio Skin. But visit a counter if you can and try it - you should be able to get a sample x

    IHM vs seated massage course: advice needed

    Hi all I'm trained in just about all areas except massage but would like to add seated/chair massage to my service menu (my business is mobile). I've been making enquiries about courses and have had some mixed messages. If I want to learn back, neck and shoulder massage (and maybe scalp), to...

    Help! Seated massage chair!

    I'm just looking at massage chairs. I see that your post is from a while ago - how do you rate the chair on the whole? x

    Cleaning foundation brush?

    Baby shampoo for a good wash; MAC or Clinique brush cleaner for a quick clean. I sometimes use surgical spirit if I have nothing else but prolonged use of alcohol can damage some brushes x

    Recommendation for liquid liner

    L'Oreal Superliner in Black Lacquer is my all time favourite. Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier gel liners are good too x

    Let's Go lash kit anyone?

    Hi I've booked onto Let's Go lash training with Nouveau Beauty Group and was wondering if any geeks out there have a kit, or surplus kit they would be interested in selling? Official Let's Go products only please - I can provide confirmation of my training place if necessary. (Mods please move...

    Kim Lawless - intimate waxing course

    It really is fine and after no time you're not really thinking about it and everyone relaxes. I hadn't trained in intimate waxing before doing the course and the process was really helpful in getting ready to do clients. I think most people are sceptical about this, but the course and...

    Are you Shellacking sucessfully? If not read on .....

    Thanks so much hun. I've taken your advice and am going round tonight and will redo the affected nails. Then if she has any further problems maybe she isn't cut out for Shellac! It was funny, when I got home and told my boyfriend about it he said "What? You wear that stuff(!) all the time...

    Shellac Peeling

    Just posted this on another thread, but think it could belong here too! Looks like I've had my first Shellac complaint today :( I'm mobile and Shellac'd a girl who I used to know vaguely from my school years on Sat. She's just texted to say it's "coming off". I said that that was strange and...

    Salary of a Beauty Therapist

    Me too. It's one thing being happy in your work but you've got to pay the bills. It's crazy that people who've done so much training can get paid so little, particularly in nice spas which charge top dollar for treatments. If you factor in things like the cost of childcare it's a wonder...

    The Daily Mail's review of Tesco's salons

    It really does seem like, after killing off so much of the high street, they've said "Ooh what else can we do?". If they start doing estate agency and charity shops most of our high streets will be well and truly finished!
