I would first like to give a shout out to all our customers who came by our booth at the Premiere Orlando Show. It is always a pleasure to either see you again or put a name to a face. Your support is truly appreciated.
I would also like to thank the team at Life of Riley Salon Supply for the 3rd year in a row, keeping me a part of their family. The support their entire team gives me goes over and above the call of duty and I sincerely appreciate them all.
One of the things I love about these Trade Shows is what I continue to learn from all of you. The questions which are asked can be very thought provoking and the inter-action between Technicians from all over the Country attending our classes is truly a learning experience in itself.
There was a common denominator amongst our Nail Technician/Salon Owner Beauty community. "How do I make more $$$ and continue to do what I love to do?
This is a very fair and concerning question. As a licensed Nail Technician myself for 30 years, I understand the challenges of making more $$$$ in the Nail world. Even more so, I understand the challenges of trying to be different.....than the many choices of Salons our clients have.
There are a whole ton of ideas scrambling though my head right now. I want to focus on one(1) very simple, very cost effective and very visibly effective to our clients. The "Youth Treatment" by LCN.
SKEPTISIM: By definition "doubt as to the truth of something".
I use this word because this is one(1) sign of a successful man or woman. I also use this word because this is how I approach every brand and/or item I choose to bring in to Distribution.
The "Youth Treatment" products have been available by LCN for quite a while now. I was and really still am thrown off by the name. However, as I have searched more into the product and what it actually does, I find myself building excitement to share how amazing this product actually is.
It not only can add more $$$ into your treatment rooms (all of them), it can add more $$$ into your retail arena. Brilliant....just Brilliant.
What is 'YOUTH TREATMENT" products?
To begin with, let's forget about the name. It doesn't do it any justice. Simply put, this is an add on service you can add in "any" of your treatment rooms AND it is also an at home treatment to add $$$ to your retail.
Wilde Cosmetics has brought the power of enzymes and brightening ingredients to peel back time and give hands a more youthful appearance. Enzymatic peeling powders are an effective way to breakdown the flaky dead skin cells that make the back of hands look dull, while the effective treatment spot removers address the years of damage from the sun that appears in the form of unsightly age spots.
YOUTH TREATMENT PEELING POWDER
Rejuvenates the skin with the power of enzymes. Enzymatic active ingredients breakdown lipids or the "glue" that keeps dead skin cells together allowing for a gentle exfoliation. With this breakdown of lipids, the peeling powder then properly prepares the skin to better absorb serums such as the YOUTH TREATMENT SPOT REMOVER or our ANTI AGE LIFTING CONCENTRATE. Results are visible after one(1) treatment.
YOUTH TREATMENT SPOT REMOVER
Regain blemish free skin the the spot remover. Contains brightening ingredients to visibly lighten pigmentation and age spots. Results are visible with 4 weeks.
What is exciting to me about this besides its effectiveness, is the ability to take this treatment from a mere $10.00 upgrade or go to the top and make it a $50-$75.00 service. Remember.....always start higher and promo them.
