    Anyone used both Perron Rigot and Waxperts waxes?

    I'm thinking about changing my Australian Body Care Waxing strip wax. I use Perron Rigot for eyebrows but nothing else just now. I'm thinking I should just get a new pot and use PR waxes for strip wax but as I'm a CND girl I'm wondering if I should go down the Waxperts Route. Has anyone used...

    Additive on free edge only?

    My client wants a French look using Shellac and additives but I'm worried the additive on the white of the French will not be neat and tidy. How would you do this? I was thinking I'd just do two coats of white using cream puff on the free edge with two coats of beau or negligee on top of it...

    When I wish to view photos on a thread when I click on the photo it doesn't load. If I close it and try to open it again, it does. Why is this happening?

    Home salon - working hours

    I'm after a bit of feedback from others on what hours they find they are busiest whilst working from home. I opened in the middle of August this year and whilst initially I was really busy and off to a good start, I've found it to be quite quiet since the middle October despite leaflet drops...

    Beauty Pro Hot Towel Steamer

    I'm sure I'm going to sound like an idiot but here goes! I have purchased a Beauty Pro Hot Towel Steamer and I've used it a few times. I've read and read the instructions that come with it but it doesn't say anything about wetting the towels before you put them in the steamer. Am I right in...

    Net bags for hot stone therapy, where to purchase?

    I learnt Hot Stone Therapy at college and we were taught to put the stones we use for specific areas i.e. back layout, chakra layout in bags before placing in the hot stone heater. I can't seem to find where to purchase these kind of bags on the net apart from laundry bags on ebay. Can...

    Charge for Shellac on top of Enhancements?

    I've just realised I haven't got a price on my treatment list for applying Shellac on top of nail enhancements. How do you guys work out the charge for this? I charge £25 for Shellac on natural nails. I've looked at local high street salons online but none seem to offer this on their price...

    How do I upload my price list onto Facebook?

    I may be really dense or something but I can't seem to upload my price list, so it can be seen on Facebook. I've done my own price list in word and I can put it as a PDF. But as I'm trying to upload it as a picture, I can't see it to upload (if you know what I mean). What do I have to do to...

    Shellac Wall Display?

    Hiya, I'm wondering if you can buy this on it's own? I can't see anything online but just wondered if it maybe originally was available and now discontinued? I'd love one as it'd be perfect to show off my Shellac colours in my new home salon. Thanks

    Where did you get your Hot Stone kit?

    Hiya, I've done my course at college which included Hot Stone Therapy, so I now wish to purchase a kit. I've just received one I ordered on ebay and to be honest I'm not impressed. The heater is lovely but far too small for the amount of stones the college taught us to use and there...

    Body Therapist only, can it work?

    I am thinking about not doing facial treatment and just concentrating on body treatments like hot stones and massage. Do you think this would work? Also if I did this would I be best to offer back exfoliating/mask treatments too and can I just buy the products for these from suppliers? If so...

    Home Based Salon - tanning booth

    Hi everyone, I'm just about to embark on spray tanning at my home based salon. What I need to ask is what do you other geeks have as a booth for your clients to stand in and to catch any over spray. I absolutely hate those pop up tents as they are so dark and very large. I don't need it...
