    Touch The Sausage!

    I don't know what anyone else thinks, but it seemed to me that the parents needed supernanny more than the kids did! :irked: Maybe Jo should have sent the mum and dad onto the naughty step for attempting to force-feed them and arguing in front of them!!

    Hi Mell, I noticed in your profile that you trained with the Carlton Institute? I did my beauty therapy courses there and when you first get the nvq packs, it is very confusion. Don't even try and work it out for yourself first, call up head office at Carlton and they will explain everything...

    Doing a 1-2-1 really helped me too. And keep practicing on as many friends/family etc rather than actual clients for the time being. Hopefully your friends and family will be more understanding and patient to allow you to perfect your nail skills. :hug:

    What equipment to take when mobile

    It depends if you already have anything to take with you, how portable it is etc. I find with pedicures I have to take my own chair cos otherwise my back is killing me afterwards. I did also go through a phase of taking a table with me and leaving in the car just in case they didn't have...

    What equipment to take when mobile

    Hi, I take my own chair for doing pedicures, but for nails I can normally manage with what they have in their home. There's always a way round it, using an ironing board is always a good one if they don't have a table! hth XX

    I'm guilty too! :o I've been registered for ages but haven't posted for nearly a year but I've been 'lurking' in the background. I've stopped offering enhancements to clients for the time being (have just concentrated on the beauty side of my business) as I feel I need to get back to basics and...

    1 Day Beauty Courses

    IMO I think one day beauty courses are fine as a starter course, but as with anything; further training is essential as well as practice, practice, practice. Skills are developed over time, not just in one day. Having done a few one-day courses myself, I wouldn't not recommend them but I...

    Help! New Client - MMA

    Hi, me again! (Sorry if you are all sick of reading about this but just thought I'd share with you how it went yesterday!) When I got there I explained to the client that I wasn't going to do a removal but simply re-balance the existing so-called "enhancements" using my product. After having a...

    How do you assess your maximum mobile areas

    Hi, I judge each case on an individual basis. I don't state how far I will travel in fear it will lose me valuable business. When a client phones up, if all they want is an eyebrow shape but they live 8 miles away then I will not do it as it is now worth my while however if they phone up and...

    Referral Schemes

    Hi Kelly, I give my clients a little card with their name on to give to their friend to bring along to their appointment. When I receive it, I make a note on the client record card to say they are entitled to discount on their next appointment. Not sure if I've explained that very well...

    Teething Problems since converting to Creative - advice needed

    Thanks everyone for the help. I will have a go later on using the tips above and see how I get on. After reading through this, I think it may be that I don't let it settle, I panic that if I leave it too long it will set and I will end up with a big blob! But I will try and relax a bit more and...
