    Need a new spray tan brand

    Having used Nouvatan now for 3 years but having tried samples of others in between I can honestly say that there isn't another one out there that matches it. If you haven't tried it then you need to!!

    Callus peeling treatment - who uses it?

    Can I ask where you purchased your Micro Plane from? Very interested as we debate the best way to treat the heels every single day!!

    Fake tan remover?

    We love Wash 'n Go a treat if you add a penny sized blob onto a clean sponge pot scourer, dampen and then gently massage the tan away!! However the bad news is that it is so hard to get hold of now so if you find it buy a couple of bottles. We always try to keeps some in the salon.

    Gelaze reviews?

    Just wondering if anyone had any new thoughts on this? We currently have a large range of colours and have now been emailed to say that another batch have just been released. Not sure whether to invest in any more as we have had lots of issues and not even consistent either won't...

    Customer toilet

    We have a tanning and beauty business and LOTS of our clients use the toilet. It's a bit of extra work in many ways, especially checking them for cleanliness etc but I can't ever imagine not allowing people that one very basic need. Pay whatever it costs for water and the loo rolls and....well...

    How to find Botox practitioner

    I just rang round some of the best practitioners and asked if they would consider working from our salon. It's a tricky one though as we have had two different ones here now and I can't say I'm thrilled with either. Just make sure you check out their qualifications and insurance before you...

    Celebrity Big Brother 2015

    Yep there's more to this lady than meets the eye!! Mastering the art of being a bitch but lets it slip every now and again. Only human after all. :suprised:

    Celebrity Big Brother 2015

    Just joined the thread and LOVE this year's BB. I think that it has opened our a lot of the characters in there but Katie Hopkins is my guilty pleasure, could watch her all day yet I despised her before she went in. BB has made me realise that she is a very clever woman who...

    Is it true that you are never too old?

    I opened our now busy salon two and a half years ago and have never looked back. I am now 51 and have re-trained in so many things which I just love. Many of our younger clients ask to book with me...never exactly sure why but they seem to feel less self conscious than they do with my younger...

    Gel ll treatment price

    Haha that is a good clue...thank you!! Are you able to say how good it is! We recently invested in Gelaze (we have Gelish and Entity Colour Couture too) and have very mixed opinions on Gelaze so far.

    The Powerhouse Lip Voltage - new product

    Totally agree with you! We LOVED the original mascara and think it was their best ever product. When they went on to release the black tube...Lash Extension...I dared to say, nicely, that I preferred the original...and guess what...they fell out with me big time!! Unfortunately they are not...

    Allergic reactions to Nouvatan

    We have one client who is also a friend of mine and always has a massive reaction to Nouvatan. She comes out in a rash of huge bumps and is very itchy. We do hundreds of tans and have had no-one else complain so it is very frustrating and Nouvatan couldn't help us really. We have sprayed her in...

    The Powerhouse Lip Voltage - new product

    Haven't tried it and probably won't as we're really very fed up with them as a company. Not sure if you've dealt with them but they have to be the rudest, most unprofessional people I have come across in this industry. They have actually hung up on me twice to date and for absolutely no good...

    Spray tan gun leaking

    I echo the over tightening!!! Try making it secure but not over tight as it seems to cause the tan to froth and then spill out of the top. I have had the same issues and this has done the trick.

    Spray tans - 2 coats or 1 coat?

    I always do two and always will. It gives me peace of mind as it allows me to be having a good check over my client on the second spray. You don't need to be spraying them again everywhere but just use the gun on the areas where you think it's needed. When we trained we were told only to do...

    Male requests mobile tan - no tan lines means naked

    I won't let any of my staff do them but I don't get too fussed either way. It's the same with a female naked tan...once you've done one you couldn't care less. I always have other staff in the salon at the time and so I would never be prepared to spray naked men as a lone mobile therapist...

    Threading practice

    Anyone that will let you...or your own brows, chin, top lip etc. I'd avoid your bezzie mate's perfect brows for a little while as it's so much easier to misjudge when you are newly starting out, and tash's and chins don't matter so much. Just believe that you will be good at it one day...and...

    Gelaze reviews?

    We love the product and the range of colours but we're confused by different reactions to it....some clients are great and we don't see them for ages as it's lasting so well...and then others are lifting after a day or two. One of my own nails just flew off at the weekend immediately after...
