There's many mobile therapist, nail techs on here,I for one do both.I work in a salon and do mobile,though tbh absolutely hate mobile work,just keep it going so can hang onto clients until I have my own business,then hope to persuade these mobile clients to move to my own salon with me,although I guess there will be some that want to stick to me going to their homes.HTHMy curiousity is getting the better of me, how many geek onboard are offering mobile treatments?
Hi,there has been many a debate over the using of ironing boards and most of us see it as being a definate no,no.I am reading this thread with interest, as I hope to become mobile myself in due course and mainly doing nails. Can I ask if people take their own portable table with them, as I can't quite see how you could manage otherwise and they're not easy to lug about. I've read about the ironing board improvisation, but can't quite visualise it somehow. I can't help but wonder if all the filing wouldn't tip the thing over, or at least make it move around a lot? :irked:
Yes that's why it's such APITA for us and why I find it such hard work,well Im sure all other beauty therapists do as well.I take my treatment couch, trolley, portable table, stool, and very large holdall.
I take everything along, as I was caught out once, only took what was required to do the treatment, only when I got to the clients house. They wanted their eyebrows, and nails done.
Ahh!! I left the equipment and products at home.
I can imagine what a pain it is doing beauty mobile - nails is no great issue tbh. I have a large holdall with: all prep products, scrubfresh, bin, sanitiser, gel lamp, daylight lamp, tips,etc, in. Then I have 1 box for enhancements, another for manicures and my polish case. So, I always need my big bag and then a combination of the others.....Yes that's why it's such APITA for us and why I find it such hard work,well Im sure all other beauty therapists do as well.
Give me a salon anyday.:green:
Well it needs to be the correct height and width,too wide and you will be streching over and hurt your back and the same as height.:green:Gotta look after our backs,and yes...certaily a damned site better than an ironing board or a black and decker workmate for that matter:lol:i'm so glad to hear so many geeks like being mobile, i'm doing nails at college and want to go mobile when i qualify next year, i can't wait to have the freedom of working for myself on the hours i want to work.
as for the table my tutor said its a good odea to get a camping table as its light to carry (and i think it looks better than using an ironing board imo)
would you recommend a camping table? or would it be better for my back to get a portable manicure table? i'm worried about the manicure table being too big and heavy xWell it needs to be the correct height and width,too wide and you will be streching over and hurt your back and the same as height.:green:Gotta look after our backs,and yes...certaily a damned site better than an ironing board or a black and decker workmate for that matter:lol:
