    Best UK keratin smoothing system

    NovMax is great I’ve been crazy this year with bookings since I started using it, it does have 0.2% formaldehyde which is the EU limit and it’s rinsed out after drying and straightening so clients definitely like it all being done in one day - I’ve started looking about because ideally I want to...

    What to do when clients aren’t being shared out in the salon?

    I’ve experienced this - I also only work Friday and Saturday since having my youngest so I’m not in the salon to be catching clients coming in or phoning to book - one thing that works great for me is having my own business page on Facebook/instagram and advertising myself - and now the majority...

    Keratin blow dry products

    Definitely making a comeback I’ve done 8 this month so far - I use NovMax it is very strong but I love the results and it’s washed out on the same day which I prefer rather than saying to client to leave their hair untouched for 3 days - I do still carry 72 Hair again it’s s great product and...
