I have been MIA from blogging because I am trying to get my foot in the door with a few salon's and spa's in the area for work. It's been a huge process- deciding to either go commission or booth rent. Both have their advantages and their disadvantages, for me it's been weighing them both as well as finding a place that I feel has the best atmosphere for my clients.
My clients need a place that they feel they can come and relax, wind down from the every day stress. Even more so when it comes to our struggles these day's. They need to feel welcome in the salon/spa that I work for and know that they will be taken care of when they come. Facials and pedicures are in a sense a "luxury" item- but my work is more than those two treatments alone. Taking care of your skin is more important today than it was 10 years ago. I am an educator on how to resolve issues concerning your skin. That's what I have been trained to do and I love it!
I finally decided to go with Moore Hair Design, doing booth rent. It's a PT gig for now, I need to build my clientele base first, it's my desire to eventually do this with out the need of a hourly wage. ( www.moorehairdesign.com ) She has a private room that I use for all my treatments, it's a cute little place. First a home, she converted the main level into a salon and uses the up stairs rooms as Esthetic's rooms, there's two of us who rent both. She has 7-8 stylists that work for her on the main floor, there are about 4-6 at a time there. My most favorite part, If I don't want to work one day- I don't have to be there. ( although if I'm not there with clients I don't make any money- that's the down side )
I use Dermalogica and Rhonda Allison for my facials and skin care treatments. She sells Dermalogica out of the salon for our clients and I brought in Rhonda Allison for my personal use, they carry a Chemical peel line that is fantastic! I have featured both product lines on here with my favorite pics'. I will be offering discounts and freebies for those who read these posts and schedule appointments with me. Some will be time sensitive and others will be for who ever reads them. They will be stated either way so there won't be any confusion. :) Thanks for reading!
Anyone who reads my blog and schedules a service with me I am offering a 25% off your treatment. (November 2008-December 2008 only)
