    Salon not using full systems

    Yours isn't the only salon doing this. I just posted in the consumer forum (as although i've maintained my CPD i no longer actively work in the industry) and i've been to two salons now, neither of which dehydrated or cleansed my nails before application but buffed the nail instead with a 180...

    Shellac application concern

    Hi All, I used to be a therapist but haven't done so for a couple of years so count myself as a consumer nowadays. I've recently found the world of Shellac and, as a lover of CND products, I was really glad to find something that didn't harm the natural nail. I've still got my CND website...

    Strip wax franchise

    I used to use Lycon, and then after my training with Kim switched to Perron Rigot. I wasn't impressed with the service I got from Strip Distribution. My products all turned up taped together with brown tape, which left a residue on all the bottles that i can't get off, so the bottles look...

    Marion, Oh my goodness you poor thing. :hug: Well first of all get yourself back to the people who did the waxing as it sounds as if they need to learn a few things... weeping wounds is not good at all, and any soreness (and i stress ANY) should die down after a few hours..... As it's...

    Swimming = ingrown hairs?? waxing help!

    hi all, yep, she leaves it at least 24 hours after waxing, and has been having her biking line waxed with me for last 3 years and has learnt not to shave. The ingrowns are on her mons, so could be irritated by clothes and undewear. Have previously given her an ingrown terminator moisturiser...

    Swimming = ingrown hairs?? waxing help!

    Hi all, I'm looking for some advice. One of my regulars for bikini waxing started swimming about six months ago and immediately there was about 60% increase in the number of ingrown hairs that she got. She stopped swimming, and the ingrowns went back down to minimal levels (she's prone to...

    Fake Bake Geeks

    How very unusual. I haven't heard of this happening before. The spa I worked for used Fake Bake and a few of the therapists used Fake Bake Dark and it was absolutely fine. Could it just have been a problem with that batch? Have you spoken with the distributors? I wouldn't shy away from Fake...

    Waxing with the Wax Queen

    Hi guys and gals, Well, both my Babyliss dual wax heaters have to go back to be fixed as the thermostats are a tad broken, and the lovely people there have told me that it will be at least 21 days to get them back - which is leaving me in a smidge of a predicament to heat wax!! Does anyone...
