    NVQ level 2 courses

    I’m looking at doing an NVQ level 2 in facials and skincare. I work full time so can’t be anything I have to spend days away from work for. Any recommendations on good providers?

    Can we talk chairs?

    I’m currently in the process of setting up my home salon and starting to think about chairs. I’m a bigger girl and something I’ve always worried about is the risk of breaking/damaging anything. I know I’m not alone in this so I want to ensure I have chairs able to withstand a larger weight. I’m...

    Body waxing inc. intimate training

    Hiya, I know not all wax is the same but is all wax training pretty much the same? As long as it’s accredited, is it good enough? Thank you

    Online dating?

    So, I've decided that after almost 4 years of being single, it's time for me to take the plunge and attempt to meet Mr Right! I have in the past tried Plenty of Fish which was really not my cup of tea and hence, I've been a bit put off for a few years. I'm considering joining a paid site...

    Men's manicures

    I've bought Nail Lux products for my male manicures, they are lemon and basil scent, really lovely and fresh but not too feminine!

    Price list help?

    Hi all, I hope this is ok to post. I have a price list drafted but I'm not sure if I'm charging too much. I don't want to undersell myself but at the same time, I don't want to be too expensive. I'm mobile and in Kent. Would any pros be willing to take a look for me? x

    Costs with being mobile?

    Thank you both! It makes sense, I will have to have a look at google maps and see how far I'm willing to go! Thank you x

    Costs with being mobile?

    Thank you, that's really helpful. I don't have an accountant but something I need to look into! Thanks x

    Costs with being mobile?

    Things like tax, services, MOT and insurance is stuff I pay anyway so perhaps I shouldn't have put those in there. However, if insurance is more expensive due to adding business as a use of the car, is this something that people just pay or is it worked into prices etc? The same goes for...

    Costs with being mobile?

    Hi geeks, I'm trying to work out a price list etc but have suddenly thought about the annual costs associated with running a car (fuel, tax, insurance, services & MOT). How does everyone else work this into their prices? x

    Prepaid for appointment but didnt show up

    I think it depends on the situation, if she had just forgotten or couldn't be bothered then I wouldn't refund, perhaps offer another appointment for the same treatments? Make it clear that if it was to happen again, you would need to keep the deposit. If it was a family emergency or something...

    Princess pamper parties

    Thank you, that's really helpful. I think I might forget the kids parties as I was hoping to be able to do parties for little girls (around 5 years). I may think about a teen party package instead. Hen parties sounds like a good idea though! Thank you! x

    Princess pamper parties

    I'm not sure if this is in the correct place but I'm thinking about adding Princess Pamper Parties to my treatments for children's birthday parties. I have spoken to Salon Gold who have said as long as I get parental consent, regular nail polish is fine to offer. EDIT: They have just informed me...

    Naming my mobile business

    I thought I had a name but now I'm not so sure. I was going down the route of enhancing natural assets i.e. gel polish, lash lifts, tints etc rather than lash extensions etc. So I thought of Modest Beauty which I loved at first but now I'm not sure it's very good. What does everyone think?
