"Great idea!  There are so many ways to use the glycolic cleanser and the retinol scrub, but you just used it my favorite way.  Glycolic to break desmosomes and jojoba beads to polish/buff the skin."

"Why didn't I do this before?! I always use my Glycolic wash, rinse, and then use my retinol scrub. This morning I decided to leave the wash on and use the scrub on top of it. Holy Toledo my skin felt amazing! And looked extremely fresh to boot!"

Are You Ready to Take the Lid Off Your Beauty Business Idea?

You’ve likely heard this before, but it bears repeating. If your audience does not feel like they know you, like you, and trust you, they’re not going to buy from you. Earning that trust is the number one biggest secret to successful beauty, spa or wellness product launches. Before we dive into what a product is,…

Tax questions for a Independent Esthetician?

I am so confused as to what I need for next years tax's. I have my own room in a local salon, I book my own appointments, my customers pay me (not the salon). I don't get paid from the salon at all, just what I make off of my appointments. Saying all that, what exactly do I need to do in order to "show" income? Do I need a LLC, tax id #, separate checking account, business name (or can I just use my name) do I need to see an attorney or a accountant??? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Midwest Beauty Show 2014

Here are my thoughts on the Midwest Beauty Show and Face and Body:

LOTS AND LOTS of those travel TENS units. it's like the Dead Sea Lotion company at the mall. They really try and hard sell you. I have to say my associate bought one. Not really impressed and you don't have to be a professional to sell them. AND ONE ON EVERY AISLE.

LOVED talking with the girls at SKIN DEEP, Dermaware, PFB, Dermaswiss, Clear My Head, Fake Bake and LOVE LOVE LOVE TIZO!!!

New Space/Job Considerations

SO, I have seen on here where people are having lots of questions about booth rent space, contracts, and what to do about concerns about their space.  I would like to take a moment and list some things to consider when you are looking into booth rent/renting space/hiring on at a new place.

  • What kinds of treatments will be offered.

I once worked at a spa that offered body treatments for 60$ an hour about after cleaning up after the mud mess, I was making $0. So mark…
