Heather Margaret MacDonald replied to Angela LaMoria's discussion Renting in a Salon
"Good luck with this. I think I'd feel funny, too, if I walked in one day and discovered another esthetician moving into the salon. But the others are right: there is probably enough work to go around, and as long as you stay positive and keep a…"

"If you could get jewelry on consignment that would be great, because you wouldn't need to spend money to make a bit of money, and women do love jewelry. Another possibility, if you're keen to have a little retail, would be hand-made cards.…"

Heather Margaret MacDonald replied to ella kurr's discussion Selling accessories in your studio/spa
"I think you should be very selective about what you sell, and it should relate directly to the treatments you offer. The blankets and boutique items are everywhere now, and I think people are getting tired of them. Also, in order to make retail look…"

Heather Margaret MacDonald replied to Sara Kathleen Bohlmann's discussion Help! I scratched client with dermafile! in the group Shelley's Show and Tell
"Isn't it interesting that we all get access to different tools? Glass files are very common in Canada, used for manicures and pedicures, both at home and in salons. They're made from thick, abrasive glass which is very gentle but…"

Heather Margaret MacDonald replied to Sara Kathleen Bohlmann's discussion Help! I scratched client with dermafile! in the group Shelley's Show and Tell
"You've already done the right thing by apologizing and looking for more info. Be calm and advise your client to use Polysporin on the abrasion; it will heal rapidly, because it's a superficial wound. I have the derma files too, and I love…"

Heather Margaret MacDonald replied to Devyn M.'s discussion Pregnancy & Spots
"Sometimes, dark spots on the legs are an indication of diabetes; they're called Diabetic Dermopathy. They're not dangerous, but you might ask your client if she experienced gestational diabetes, as that might explain the dark patches. If…"

Heather Margaret MacDonald replied to Lisa Fulton's discussion How to handle clients who make false statements and tries to cause problems?
"You don't really know who is coming through your door, Lisa. All you can do is continue to act in good faith, and give all your clients excellent service, so that if someone does abuse the relationship you feel super confident about telling…"

"Wrinkling is a nuisance. I just get them out of the dryer ASAP, fold them, and then pull them tightly over the bed to stretch our the wrinkles. "

Heather Margaret MacDonald replied to Nicole H's discussion Collagen Masks
"I like the Satin Smooth eye and lip collagen masks. They feel lovely, and plump up the skin nicely. Also, they're affordable, so I use them as freebies to attract clients to facials. For example, in my regular newsletter, I might tell my…"

Heather Margaret MacDonald commented on Margo Koeller's blog post Microdermabrasion VS Diamond Peel
"I noticed that you use the dermafiles and ultra spatula. How much more effective is the micro machine than the dermafiles? Is it just a time-saver, or do you think you get a better result with a machine? Are the dermafiles popular with clients? Do…"
