As the title says.

I got really busy throughut august and first week of september but it's gone dead, I've got my regulars still booking in but no newbies :(

When will it start picking up?

I need to see some light at the end of that tunnel :D Give me some hope someone please x

Stick with it. It takes a couple of years before you are busy all year round even then we all have our quiet weeks, make sure you get all your existing clients pre booking appointments and try a recommend a friend offer for them.

At this time of year people are spending money on school uniforms & dinners so just be patient. If you have regulars, word of mouth will do it's job soon :)

What were the August bookings? Were they holiday/wedding/special event clients? Have you seen any returning?

It does take a while to pick up business. The nail world is very saturated that potential clients have a lot of options! The msot important thing is keeping them once they get through your door :hug:

I was going to post something similar. I really felt lost this week with it being so quiet I had tones of emails and phone calls but no one wants this week they all want pay day. So I put an offer on to get people in this week and it still got no interest this week. Next year Im going to make sure I take this week off and have it as my holiday rather then taking a holiday in August. Least we learn though out the years :)

this is the first week since i don't know when that I've not had a full diary - i've had 4 slots this week unfilled. I utilised the time and made a (long needed) dent in my accounting

Never thought I'd be thinking this, but I am actually glad October's diary is a little less busy, otherwise i'd end up in meltdown from exhaustion.
