    Skin tags, electrolysis

    Oops! I did think you meant what form of method/needle system ...sterex or ballet actually. Would it be worth a call or email to either needle supplier to ask if there is the relevant consultation card that you can have from them ? Regards

    Clients who turn up really early!

    Oh that seems such a shame after you have got your lovely room just perfect. It would give you your house back and no clients knocking when they feel like it. They get to you sometimes don't they! I have thought about it many times over the years and I like the convenience and freedom of not...

    What to do about gel polish shrinkage?

    All above is great advice and you could also try this ;- Stir the gel thoroughly with the right tool, dry brush base coat and then flash cure 2 nails at a time. (10 secs to stabilise it) That is what I was told on my gellux course if the colour isn't behaving. It happens with some colours...

    Reaction to cream waxes

    Hi there, Over the years , just a couple of my clients had the same reaction, and although they took antihistamine it sometimes reacted and sometimes didn't. Again when a period was due the sensitivity was more marked. ( I know my strip wax had the colophonium in there so was a known irritant...

    I’ve left the industry, trying to find a replacement therapist

    You are a very caring lady , and it shows! I have known some of mine for 35 years and so I know how you feel. To be honest as well even if you find another therapist their training will be very different to what you have had maybe and that could be a bit awkward especially if their standards...

    Aromatherapy training

    Hi there, No wonder you are confused as there are such a lot of courses being offered in your area. I have looked at some of the many providers. I would always advocate a college course diploma as the first choice, that's me personally. That's what I did and yes it was a year -3 hours per...

    Business name

    I really like sunflower, it's lovely. Use it and just call yourself "Sunflowerbeauty "and that would cover all your needs for the future direction of your business. I'm not particularly arty or clever with names , but it says what you do and that should be enough. Good luck !

    Sticky wax left on client?

Sounds like You are using hot wax and so I would try to apply it a little thicker at the edges so that the risk of leaving a little behind is lessened.

    At home beauty salon?

    All you can do is ask your clients the question about if they mind coming to your mum and dads house. As I replied to your debate about whether or not to become home based you did not say you were still at your parents. It will be easier for you , but your parents are very involved so they...
