    Professional Beauty teeth whitening

    For any of you heading off to Professional Beauty next week, please, please, PLEASE DO NOT be duped by all the tooth whitening companies that tell you it's legal. It isn't.

    Workers pensions

    Just though I'd share this. Today we went to an employers information session at a local hotel. One of the areas discussed was the upcoming pensions. As we know, self employed and employed in this industry is a tricky area, but if you are supplying products for a therapist and taking a share...

    What makes a good business?

    A little food for thought for those of you in business. Yet again, I'm looking for a new hairdresser. Why??? The last lady I went to did great colour and cut, but revelled in drama - the phone would ring, she'd answer it and chat while I sat there meekly waiting for her to finish. The salon...

    Electric spray tan tent

    Has anyone used one of the electric tan tents that go in the washing machine? We don't do a huge amount of tanning, but yet another tent has got warped as I've tried to fold it down. We're now thinking that one of these electric ones might be good. The only threads I can find are quite old, so...

    Do we have the 'right' to be educated in beauty?

    We're forever seeing posts on here from therapists doing short courses, many with little contact time, but online info and lots of literature. Therapists taking these courses justify it with "I can get insured" or "we can't all go to college 5 days a week". I also see a lot of "what's the best...

    Pre-mixed massage oils

    Has anyone any recommendations for premixed massage oils. We have used the Eve Taylor ones which are lovely, but for general massage they only have 2 choices, and we're getting a little bored.

    Room to rent

    This is a small room to rent in a pretty barn on the Leicestershire/Northants borders, about 3 miles from the Catthorpe interchange - M1/M6/A14. It wouldn't suit a beauty therapist, but we would love to hear from Holistic therapists, laser hair removal specialists, or anything that would...
