    Doing offers after coronavirus?

    As you have already notified your clients, go straight to the new prices when you open up again. It will have been so long that they will have forgotten what they used to pay anyway! [emoji849]

    Paraffin wax: hand/foot nourish

    You dispose of any wax that has been applied to the client’s skin. You can’t return it to the heater. So the answer is once only. You can of course reheat the unused wax many times.

    Time off due to coronavirus

    I cancelled everyone who had booked. These bookings went through to June so basically my appointment book is empty for the whole year now. Even if we are allowed to start up again in say, July or August, clients will be totally revising what they want and when.

    Still working?

    All home salons should have closed down last night and not opening today. You have to cancel all your bookings for 3 weeks as a minimum. I've cancelled everyone to the end of June. Mobile visits should not be happening either.

    ITEC is a recognised exam board with a long respectable history so no problem with that aspect. What you have to ask yourself is "What units will I achieve from this course and is it in the direction I wish to go". Can you give us a list of the units it DOES include? Are they doing this in one...
