    Wirey eyebrows on elderly client

    Hi all I'm after some advice/tips to help me with my brow client who I'm a bit lost with. She's in her 80's and has fair hair. Last year her daughter trimmed and plucked her brows to within an inch of their life so that you could hardly see them. A few months ago I started tinting them for...

    What could be causing this nail whiteness?

    Hi all If the client doesn't pick her Gelish off, she's using her oil twice a day, she's following all after care, I am removing it correctly - what else could cause these white discolourations towards the ends of the nail? She's been having Gelish for about 8 months now. Thanks in advance x...

    Shellac - the new Hoover!

    Getting so many people tell me they've had Shellac before - when they really mean Gelish, IBD Just Gel, Gellux, Geleration or even dodgy Bluesky etc - I find myself using this analogy: The word Shellac vs any gel polish has become like Hoover vs any vacuum cleaner - as the brand name is so...

    Face hole sniffles

    How do you all avoid your clients getting right bunged up and sniffly when using the face hole in your massage couch? I end up having to give them a tissue with peppermint on in an attempt to unblock them! Sent from my GT-I9100 using SalonGeek
