www.BeautySolutionsSoftware.com - Helping Hairdressers Build Their Business.

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. Or, to meet these new technology-based demands, we've reached for incomplete or ineffective tools or pieced them together for as complete a solution as possible. Now, there’s a better way.

[vertical-spacer] Beauty Solutions Software is a single, inexpensive solution that solves all the digital and transactional needs of a busy salon or individual hairdresser. It’s always on and always available, from anywhere, on any device. And it works for you while you work, while you play, or while you sleep.

[vertical-spacer] Beauty Solutions Software provides your mobile web presence and integrates perfectly with Facebook. So, if Facebook is your go-to starting point, your clients can start their online appointment there. And, when your clients get their email reminder one day before their appointment, and a text an hour before, you will have just started giving yourself a 15% - 20% pay increase.

[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. All of this can happen automatically, online and 24/7, in-the-background, while you focus on something else!

[vertical-spacer] For a demo, or to start a free 30-day trial, go to www.BeautySolutionsSoftware.com. Simply click, and you’ll be on your way to having a complete online organizational tool you can rely on to help you grow your business and satisfy your clients.

[vertical-spacer] Beauty Solutions Software is another step in helping salon professionals. With easy setup and a personal coach, you can be satisfying your clients’ always-on expectations in no time.

Salon Action Plan for a Busy New Year (Part 2)

Does your business slow down in January and February? For many Stylists and Salons, it does. Here are four things you can do now, during the busiest time of year, to make sure your after-holiday season is the best you’ve ever had.  But it’s time to act now! ACTION #2: PRE-BOOK

Of course, it goes without saying, pre-booking should be something we all do, all the time. But for many, this is not a habit and may require a cultural shift in the salon, or, at least, a real effort to remind yourself (sticky notes on your calendar?).

It may also be a new addition to the client experience, one that is likely to be considered MORE professional and a positive, rather than a negative. If pre-booking has not been part of your SOP (Standard Operating Procedure), you’ll be introducing a new client action you’ll want to be repeated for each and every client and each and every visit.

Getting started: It starts with a simple question, or assumptive statement: “Shall we get your next appointment on the schedule?” Or,”Let’s make sure we have you on the schedule for your next appointment.”

Still uneasy?  Here are a few ways to kick it up a notch:

Perhaps an incentive is a way to get started. You can offer a sample-size of your favorite product to stimulate the booked appointment and a travel-size product gift upon completing their pre-booked appointment.

Drawings are a good way of incentivizing a large number of people. Rather than giving something to every pre-booked appointment, a gift basket valued at $50 may get all your clients taking action.  While $50 may sound like a lot, it could be far less than giving a $4-5 (cost) travel size to 100 clients.

When you feel you and your clients have established a firm habit, you can decide to reduce or drop the incentive(s).

Stimulate Jan/Feb Bookings: Just like gift certificates, pre-booking in December can turn your slower, after-holiday season into a prosperous period. Again, if there’s a specific day of the week or time of day that you would like to target for bookings, then your incentives should be specific to that target.

Reminders: As with any appointment, a reminder call, e-mail, or postcard before the appointment will cut down on no-shows. A text message on the morning of the appointment is most effective of all.

In closing: I hope you find this article helpful.  Watch for Parts 3 and 4.  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. I hope you enjoy using them.”  - Kevin Murphy

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.

ALFAPARF is "Game-Changing Color!"

A note from Beauty Solutions:When we agreed to test the ALFAPARF brand we, of course, started with their permanent hair color range, Evolution of Color (EOC). WOW! Tons of shine!   It was deep, rich, right-on-the-money tone with really excellent coverage, even on our two most resistant test models. Not matte or flat, just perfect and natural looking. Add to that, great condition. Everyone has been raving about how great their hair feels. A month later (as of this writing) our test subjects’ hair looks the best it has in years!  Really big WOW!
