Clocks back……..

I put this post up a couple of weeks ago now…. I thought I would share on her to help those that are struggling in business at the moment.

………………………………………..

 

So who forgot to put their clocks back today?

Well…. 8 years ago on Tuesday, in salon, that was me! I will never forget. I had opened KG that year and it was DEAD! The days would drag. My dad used to pop in after he finished work to give me a bit of company. This day he popped in at 5pm for an hour.

As he was getting ready to leave, so was I! I remember him saying, “Where are you going?”
“Home” i’d say.
It’s only 6pm he replied!

That feeling of being exhausted, looking at the clock, waiting to go home as I didn’t have ONE customer that day. I just wanted to cry!!! As I thought it was 7pm… but I forgot to put the clock back! That extra hour felt like a million hours. I would never ever lock up my salon early, just incase that one customer did turn up.

How much longer can I do this for? I remember crying nearly every night when it hit quiet season before the Christmas rush. I didn’t know how I was going to get through another day. The only light I could see was just to end it all and go bankrupt. But that was not my dream!!! And the fear of failing and packing it all up scared the life out of me…. that was the easy option.
But I kept going, and I got through it with a hell of a lot of hard work.
Chloe knows how dead it was and we both plodded on!

Now…. Well, that’s a different story! We don’t have enough hours in a day. Thank the lord. And grateful everyday.

So businesses out there, when it gets tough, don’t give up. Remember why you started and what your end goal is. But remember to change your clocks when you open up tomorrow morning 😉

Have a great week everyone

Patch testing 

PLEASE ladies, never get eyelash extensions done anywhere without a patch test.Reactions are awful and can cause severe discomfort and even worse…. cause blindness. It is just not worth the risk. Even if you have had lashes for years and trying another salon or therapist, you still need to be patch tested with their glue.

That second patch test can really save a lot of hurt later on.

LASH TECHS: How do you patch test?

There are two ways of testing.

FIRST – BEHIND THE EAR. Why do I like this as my favourite way? Because it’s close to the eye, but not on the face. It touches the skin (which some don’t agree on) but a lash tech could easily drop a lash with glue on, so you need to know if allergic on the skin. 

IF there was a reaction, at least it was behind the ear rather than on her eye. 

Plus it’s quick and easy for therapist and client. 

SECOND – APPLY LASHES – This is my least favourite as the glue doesn’t touch the skin. So what happens if you drop that lash on your client? Or your client moves suddenly and comes in contact with the glue? This patch test will not show up if allergic to the skin. It may show up if allergic to the fumes of the glue… but in a full set of lashes there will be many more fumes, so this is unlikely to show up a reaction.

Please note: patch tests are not 100% guaranteed and a reaction normally comes over a period of time once someone is having lashes ongoing.

So how do you patch test or what is your view?

Product of the week 

Redken Diamond Oil Grow Dry: 

This is one of my most favourite products ever. You know that product you just can’t live without, use everyday, when wet, when dry, with extensions, without extensions… . Well this is that product. 
Diamond oil is a treatment and oil in one. 

Treatment for dull, dry and damaged hair while it smoothes, softens and conditions the hair. 
You can apply this product while hair is wet. 

* Heat protection 

* Reduces blow-dry time

* Provides Diamond-like hair shine 

* Strengthens hair 
Or my favourite way, I use when dry to add softness and shine! I personally use this product daily – and when I had my extensions in it was a must have as kept them conditioned and soft. 
Enjoy! 
Lots of love

Available in salon: £32.50
