Software coming soon Slider v1 Some of us at Beauty Solutions have been in the business of helping salon owners and hairdressers for over 30 years. While so much has changed in the world of beauty, what’s happening inside salons has not changed. It’s still about satisfying clients and making them feel good about themselves.

[vertical-spacer] Now, however, in the “always-on” digital world, your clients have some new expectations that many salons and hairdressers have not kept up with.

[vertical-spacer] Those are the statistics! But it’s just the beginning of what we want to help you accomplish, to earn more money and get more things done that will build your business.

[vertical-spacer] Send a thank you to new clients, get lost clients back, sell online gift certificates, offer rewards for referrals, and even “reserve” products to be picked up at the front desk.

KEVIN.MURPHY REPAIR.ME from KEVIN.MURPHY on Vimeo.

REPAIR.ME is a three-part system that uses naturally derived super food proteins from Green Peas and Fruit Enzymes from Papaya and Pineapple. The system includes REPAIR-ME.WASH and RINSE and an innovative product called RE.STORE that is a repairing and cleansing treatment IN ONE!

A Note From Kevin:

Dear Salons, REPAIR.ME is a three-part system that uses naturally derived super food proteins from Green Peas and Fruit Enzymes from Papaya and Pineapple. The system includes REPAIR-ME.WASH and RINSE and an innovative product called RE.STORE that is a repairing and cleansing treatment IN ONE! I am excited to bring you the best of nature and new scientific advances such as the effects of lipase, an enzyme that stays in a lipid or moisturising state.

Traditionally, high protein products left a residue that made the hair feel brittle and stiff. With this new technology we are now able to encapsulate a Protein within an Enzyme, keeping the Protein in a lipid or moisturised state. The Enzyme keeps the Protein wobbly and soft, which allows it to fit exactly into the damaged site - like a key in a lock. Enzymes also help to “unlock” the power of the plant-derived Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s). They are essential for healthy hair but must be added topically as the body cannot make them.

Adding to this powerhouse of technology and nature we have included Aloe Leaf Extract for lubrication and Bamboo Extracts for a reflective shine. REPAIR-ME.WASH and RINSE will restore and repair your hair, adding shine and reconstruction, gently polishing the surface and forming a protective sheath of moisturising and strengthening nutrients. With the addition of Silk Amino Acids and Acai extracts, REPAIR-ME also delivers reconstructing and repairing benefits to chemically damaged and brittle hair. RE.STORE uses no-foam technology, which means it’s a one-step repairing treatment that cleanses and treats your hair at the same time. Using Enzymes combined with the superfood Green Pea Proteins and Vegetable Amino Acids, it provides that much needed “shot in the arm of protein” essential to repair and restructure the hair shaft, but without the brittle feel normally associated with high protein. Hair is left glossy, shiny, and repaired!

RE.STORE replaces your wash and rinse on the “day-of-use”. Example: if you use REPAIR-ME.WASH and RINSE on Monday and Tuesday, then on Wednesday you can use RE.STORE instead of your wash and rinse. I hope you enjoy the innovation of the REPAIR-ME system using the latest technology and natural ingredients derived from high-end skincare.

Cheers,

REPAIR ME LETTER FROM KEVIN

Salon Action Plan for a Busy New Year (Part 1)

Does your business slow down in January and February? For many Stylists and Salons it does. Here are four actions to take now, during the busy time, to make sure your after-holiday season is the best you’ve ever had. But it’s time to act now!

 ACTION #1:  GIFT CERTIFICATES

We start this 4-part post with an obvious no-brainer.  But, don’t assume your clients will think about this perfect gift idea without a little nudge from you.  Here are a few things to consider to make your holiday gift certificate sales pop:

  •  Visuals / Signage: Make sure there are plenty of visual reminders around all areas of the salon. Counter signs displayed at your retail area and on the front desk, and mirror clings (or cards) at every station will keep your gift certificates on their mind and sales brisk.  A 2-sided flier in your window gets clients coming and going. A tent card or mirror card in the restroom is always a good idea.  (Click here for a simple 3"x3" art)
  • Reach Out: Send an email, SMS text or post card to everyone in your client database, suggesting your gift certificates as a great option for everyone on their holiday list (always update EVERY client contact to include email, and their cell phone for SMS texting).
  • Stimulate Jan/Feb Redemption: Choose a day or time of the week that’s regularly slower and target those days for bookings. Consider adding an incentive, perhaps a travel-size product gift, for those who redeem their gift certificate on, say, Tuesdays between 2-4pm, as an example. You can provide this incentive with a small note slipped into the certificate. Ask the buyer for their OK, but generally they will appreciate the added value of your additional gift opportunity.

 Here’s an example of what to say: “We offer an additional gift of a free product if the certificate is redeemed at certain times. Would you like me to add this extra gift option with the certificate?”

  • Timing: It’s always a good time to focus on gift certificates, but December is critical. Start today. Browse your salon to see how many signs you need and where they’ll go. You can be on your way to great gift certificate sales, which will lead to a prosperous January and February!

In closing: I hope you find this article helpful.  Watch for Part 2.  I’d love to hear your comments and any other successful ideas you’ve used so I can pass them on to your fellow hairdressers. BTW: Please be our friend and “Like” and “Share”.  As always, thank you for doing business with Beauty Solutions. We really appreciate your business and friendship.  Wes Brown, Beauty Solutions, LLC

TREAT.ME by KEVIN.MURPHY
Kevin has ventured back to the era of the APOTHECARIST and PERFUMER where precious elements such as essential oils, plant extracts and other formulations were mixed together for potency and extreme effectiveness in CRUETS, FLACONS and other tools of the trade. Kevin has crafted the best of nature and science for the salon, with a touch of romance and ritual.

 

“The TREAT.ME range of products are designed for an in salon experience. The products are full strength with a high concentration of active ingredients. They have been designed for you to be able to tailor them to suit each of your client’s needs. They are specific and targeted for a professional treatment system.

Moisture Cruet - LR reduced

TREAT.ME MOISTURE

For hair that is dehydrated, frizzy or chemically treated.  Add weightless moisture, shine and softness to your client’s hair with this personalised in-salon treatment.   Precious oils and plant extracts will not only hydrate, regenerate and restructure, they will rebuild from the  inside out with no weight, leaving your hair manageable.

The MOISTURE CRUET contains exotic plant extracts such as Moringa Oil that releases over 26 Amino Acids involved in the building blocks of hair.  Gardenia Extracts soften the hair and Mongongo Oil derived from the deepest regions of Africa offer excellent hydrating, regenerating and restructuring benefits.

 

Strength Cruet - LR reduced

TREAT.ME STRENGTH

For distressed hair that is weak, brittle and damaged.  Restore strength, thickness and elasticity to hair by using a combination of strengthening proteins and amino acids.  This personalised treatment addresses weak, brittle and damaged hair.  Hair will be revitalised, smoother and more elastic with more body and strength.

The STRENGTH CRUET uses targeted essential Amino Acids to restore strength, thickness and elasticity to the hair.  Soy Protein increases the ability of the hair to bind moisture.  Compositions of Vegetable Proteins are similar to the structure of the hair and will absorb easily to create radiant, strengthened and luminous results.

Elixer LR -reducedELIXIR Strengthens & intensifies each treatment

The ELIXER FLACON is made to strengthen the intensity of the treatment. It contains Sugar Cane extracts, Alpha Hydroxyl acids (AHA’s) and other powerful antioxidants to halt oxidation. We remove roughness by gently buffing and preparing the hair to accept the ingredients essential to moisture and strength.

Think of the ELIXIR FLACON as the Magic – the power behind MOISTURE and STRENGTH.  The combination contains volatile ingredients that come alive in the hands of the stylist, offering a custom in-salon treatment.
