MakingYour List...

Holiday Note: Making Your List...There are many ways to add sparkle to your salon and get glowing this season. But just like in your personal life, the perfect holidays start with good planning.You have to make lists: shopping lists. To do lists. Lists of friends, family, clients with whom you want to connect.

You have to check the calendar. Check it twice. Salon parties, work parties, school parties, family parties. You have to think about and plan your own parties, you need to think about and plan for your clients’ parties. Where are the opportunities to remind, encourage her to pre-book her appointments to look extra special for a special night? To experience a new service? To add a dash of glam with a fun beauty accessory, like gel nails, lashes, a bold bit of color?
