Just wondering if you offer refreshments in the salon?

I am planning on getting a hot and cold water cooler thingy so that people can help themselves to water or herbal teas.

Thought about tea and coffee but not exactly the best drink to have before a treatment and would have to get fresh milk in etc.

What do you offer? Which is most popular?

My friend just has a cooler thingy in her salon that does hot and chilled water and just offers herbal teas to her clients.

She found that no-one wanted regular tea or coffee and she was just throwing the milk away.:hug:

As a customer I really appreciate it when salons offer a drink - herb tea would be lovely and water would be excellent, especially if it's a long appointment. If someone offered me peppermint tea they'd have a client for life!

I offer tea, coffee, hot choc, herbal tea and have a water cooler.
I just buy a small fresh carton of milk keep it at the salon, if its not empty at the end of the day I take it home, pop it in the fridge and take it back to the salon the following day. Often what I also do is to keep an empty milk carton and fill up from the bottle of milk at home, then take it to the salon.
Most clients love a hot drink, its a nice touch.

I was going to get small bottles of water in to start with. Also got one of those coffee machine thingys that you put a pod in and press the button, thought I would take that in and try it out.

the other place I work at, I have a jug with a glass fits on top of water with disposable water cones next to it.

We offer hot drinks at the salon i work at but i have to say as a therapist the majority of the time my clients are led down e.g facial, massage,waxing ect. so don't have time to drink a hot drink. It's really only for manis and pedis they have a tea or coffee.

I don't offer drinks (i don't have the time to make them)and my clients know and appreciate how busy i am, all my clients know I have coffee/tea making facilities, as well as water and softdrinks in the fridge.
But most clients brings their own (and more often that not, one for me too).

Personally I would offer cold drinks if anything. Has no one heard of hot drinks attracting dust and then you ingest it!
