    Can my Studio58 extensions be saved?

    Hi all, I'm a bit of a lurker on the hair forum as I'm mainly nails but I am a trained hairdresser so I hope you don't mind me asking your advice. I used to have Racoon extensions for 2-3 years and got on with them really well. I stopped having them as I was off work after having my son...

    Been using Shellac since day 1 and only just stumbled across a problem...

    The last bottle of top coat I received started dripping as I was using it, I mean top coat actually dripping from up inside the lid as I was using it which meant blobs of top coat on my clients hands and my hands and on the table. I thought maybe it was just a dodgy bottle but it's now started...

    Sharing Leaflets....

    My brother has offered to go halves with me on 5000 double sided leaflets because I was moaning at how much I spent last time and didn't get any calls. He has a transport company and his advert would be on the other side. Would you girls go for this? It will be lots cheaper for me BUT I...

    Magis Foil Wraps

    Just thought I'd let you all know that a new version of the magis foil wraps are coming out towards the end of the year. After speaking to one of the ladies at hq today I was told that they will have cotton pads in them (I don't like the rubbish sponges which leak when pressed) and hold more...

    Help with my CND lamp please

    I have the new UV lamp and am wondering if it warns you when the bulbs are going to need replacing? I know you can press the reset button to find out how long is left but mine doesn't do anything when I press it so I have no idea!

    Shellac clients wanting more....

    I have searched and searched on Salon Geek tonight but cannot find the answer to this. Shellac has been a major boost to my business and (even though I also offer gel, l&p and natural treatments) it is now 80% of my business. I think it helps that I LOVE it!! I layer the colours, use glitter...

    Can Minx be used directly on the skin?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question but I've never used Minx and was wondering because I have no big toenail on one foot. It is very very tender/sensitive and I cannot use l&p, I have tried and it hurts to file it. I even tried sculpting one and then sticking it on after but then it obviously...

    Off topic but solar oil related

    My 3 year old son has chicken pox, he's done really well at not scratching but he's knocked a scab off quite a big spot on his face today. I know they can scar quite badly, typical it had to be on his face. I'm just wondering if solar oil might help to reduce the scar? What do you think...

    Do any of you use Simply books for your accountancy software? I am trying to decide which to use and know a few of you use quickbooks but this one is meant to be simpler still and cheaper.
