    Eyelash glue

    Hi :) I use flirties too and just about to place my first order (just finished the glue in my kit). I too am mobile and not doing loads of lashes at the moment so I don't want to waste the glue in the 5g bottles. When you say "mini bottles" do you mean the 0.5g ones? Thanks :) xx

    Tan after lash extensions

    I know this is an old post but I'm hoping you're still around!! When you tan after lashing, how do you advise they wash the tan off their face? Do they shower it off as normal and then just pat dry round their eyes? I was told lashes shouldn't get wet for 24 hours so I'm concerned about the wash...

    Percentage split when offering a discount & other questions

    Thank you. Completely understand what you are saying. I think the reason she wants us to be there during certain hours is so that the salon is covered at all times. So if she isn't in, at least someone else is. I understand the rent thing being a better idea that a percentage but until I get...

    Percentage split when offering a discount & other questions

    Hi all, I was just wondering what happens with a percentage split when you offer a discount (to clients) on a treatment? Does the salon owner get the percentage based on the full price of the treatment or of the discounted treatment? Also, am I right in thinking that the salon owner cannot...

    Following as was about to ask the same question :)

    I could cry-Facebook

    Do you mean you post from your person page but with a link to your like page? Or does your like page actually allow you to post on selling pages? I have never been able to do this, which is one of the reasons why I made a friends page. X

    Has anyone mobile taken on a helper?

    THANKYOU so much for your ideas. I don't feel I can increase my price as I charge £20 for a spray tan and I know lots of people round here charge £15 (some even £10 !). My time management is excellent half an hour appointments for 1 person, 45 minutes for 2 people. Plus I now only cover my...

    I could cry-Facebook

    Yep this is also another issue - not being able to message people first :( Can't post on local pages etc etc there's so much you can't do with a like page!

    Has anyone mobile taken on a helper?

    Exactly, it's just a bit of a deterrent really but nothing to actually stop that person taking your business. But then I guess there's nothing to stop anyone from taking their employers business even in a salon. Probably just safer to stay on my own and turn people down during busy periods :(

    You're so right! I didn't even think of that! Cos now we spend money on boosting posts etc. Damn it! Oh well it was good while it lasted

    I could cry-Facebook

    Ok so I knew it could always happen but Facebook have changed my business page (made as a personal page) to a "LIKE" page I already have a LIKE page so it's being merged with that but I am GUTTED!!!! The like pages are so rubbish because you can't always tag people in photos (which helps to get...

    Has anyone mobile taken on a helper?

    A friend of mine owns a cleaning company and she makes them sign something that says they will not carry out work for any of the customers for 1 year after they have left the cleaning company. Guess this is the only way to TRY and reduce them stealing my customers - not guaranteed tho. I have no...

    Has anyone mobile taken on a helper?

    Without me, so she can take on the appointments I can't fit in x

    Has anyone mobile taken on a helper?

    Hi, I just wondered if anyone who is mobile has taken on an employee before or got someone to work for them but on a self-employed basis?! How have you found it? I'm busy but want to cut down on the hours I do in the evening but hate saying no to clients so thought if I had a helper then I...

    LDN Tan clearing my acne?

    I'm not sure but a few of my customers have said they find the same thing when they have a spray tan (I use Nouvatan not LDN), so it's probably something in the solution. Would be interested to know if anyone knows the actual answer to this!

    Help! Under eye gel pads

    Oh yes! Believe me it took ages to remove! I'm so so glad that I tried the tape on people who I already know and not first time clients. I would have been horrified. I remember having the tape applied when someone did my lash extensions once before and I always dreading removing the tape! I...

    Help! Under eye gel pads

    Thanks so much for your help everyone. I do already cut 3 slits at the bottom of the pads and as said above I refuse to use the micropore tape (tried 3 different types and it has always really hurt my clients when removing it, even though I was really careful!). I shall first try holding the pad...

    Help! Under eye gel pads

    STILL can't get the hang of these!!! As soon as the clients shut their eyes the pads lift up. Massively annoying. I end up taking them off completely and then doing the treatment without them which can be quite fiddly! Don't necessarily need any more advice just wanted to vent my frustration...

    Fussy people!

    Completely agree with this. I also think that new customers who have had previous tans elsewhere think they know it all and don't need to read the prep advice I provide on my website. Then I get to their house and find they haven't exfoliated and they say "oh I've never had to do that before!"...
