    ££ - Spray tan charges

    £20. People are happily paying. Am not in a particularly posh area. To be honest, if i saw a tan advertised for £8 i would think it was a crappy solution. Wonder how many cheapo tans really are St Tropez etc. Plenty of fake shellac around. Sure tans are the same. Charge what you are...

    Tips for tanning wrists, please

    Ive been spray tanning for about four months and it is going really well. But this last week several people have said the inside of their wrists looked a bit messy. The tan stops abruptly at the wrist in a kind of ragged patchy splodgy line. Same thing down the side of the thumb. Have seen...

    Easily offended but.....spray tanning

    That, Deebaneenee, is genius! I say "really? Well beauticians LOVE this one because of the quality - and we are verrrrry hard to please.". All of which is absolutely true.

    Lash perm, let's bring it back!

    I last saw an eyelash perm done about ten years ago and thought the curl was too tight. I was expecting a bigger sweep and lift if you see what i mean. Is there a better way of doing this now? Lots of my clients are more mature and wary of sp lash extensions but i can see that a tint...

    How much do you charge your friends for spray tan?

    She might not expect it for free and would probably be mortified if she knew what you are thinking. I say charge full price but maybe give her a freebie for her birthday. Quite a lot of my friends began as clients, i dont do treatments for free and i dont think they expect it. This is...

    Is it nasty?

    Sounds like you have a smart head for business - good luck. I do think you should be straight with her though and explain to her what you are thinking (i'm sure you were going to be anyway but just sayin' :) ) I am a mature therapist (well, 45 lol) with a mature clientele (50s). It would...

    How to get a client to leave that hangs around

    This used to happen to me all the time. I use a series of prompts to ease them out the door, chat chat chatting all the time. Try some/all of these: Stand up. Close diary with a snap. Get her coat and hold it open for her whilst standing near the door. Picknup her bag and hand it to...
