    Glitter Tattoos on spray tanned skin.

    Have several younger clients who are loving glitter tattos at the moment, but unfortunately I'm struggling to apply on spray tanned skin. The stencils are removing enough of the tan for a whiter box to appear around the tattoo. Has anyone found a way to avoid this?.....(Sue?) Thank you very...

    Lash Extensions. Can they hurt?

    I'm not lash extension trained (although thinking seriously about it) and therefore, it's not a service I offer, but I have a couple of clients who come to me, for other nails and waxing but go elsewhere for their lash extensions. To be honest, to my untrained eye, they look untidy (not what I...

    Bio Sculpture Gels description and usage.

    Bio Sculpture gels. The beauty of the Bio Sculpture range is that it truly is a prescriptive service for the nail tech to design an enhancement that suits the type of nail the client has. As we know clients natural nails differ dramatically in strength, length, flexibility and durability, so...

    Tria? Home laser hair removal.....

    Have come across this through another (non-beauty) forum and it is being raved about, by a couple of ladies who have used Rio (which they say was an utter waste of time - no surprise there), and have also used salon laser/IPL and are saying this is as effective and is worth the (somewhat rather...

    Gel sunbed!

    No word of a lie....I have just had a new client who swears blind, that the last time she had gel nails, (and apparently they didn't last - no kidding!) the salon used the sunbed to cure the nails! Would it even work? Even though output would undoubtedly be it the same type of UV...

    I know this is probably a huge long shot, but I'm after a good gel tech for a recommendation somewhere near Stormville, NY. Bio Sculpture or Akzentz would be a huge bonus! Anyone??

    Can we get away with increasing our prices at the moment?

    Well, this month has been the first this year I didn't improve on the last months turnover and profit...partly I believe down to seasonal downturn, but also due to rising prices from suppliers, increased postage and delivery, higher fuel costs when travelling and general running costs are having...

    How often do you have a 'no show'?

    In the last 2 days, I've had 1 client cancel 5 minutes after her allotted appointment time, 1 no show altogether, and one turn up 40 minutes late for a 1hr appointment....only after I rang her to find out where she was, and she guiltily turned up. She then admitted that she just got really busy...

    Wierdo? Or am I being naive?

    I have just taken a call from a guy who proclaims to 'have many wives' and not all of them are as tanned as he would like.:eek: He wanted me to go round and spray tan them all up. I politely declined. I can't help but think I was being wound up, but I have no idea who by. He knew my...
