The most profitable part of my business is ______...

1...nail designs during the holidays. —Mandie Quincy-Dube

2...client retention! Keep them happy, keep them coming! —Sherice Zammitt-Groff

3...knowledge. We as hairdressers know the tools, the hints, the tips, but passing it on to our clients is the best thing I can offer! Part of my job is to educate them on how to make things easy for them, giving them the proper info on products, etc. it's one thing for them to look and feel great in my chair, but it's another for them to look and feel that way once they are at home! —Sunnie Foster

4...private tutoring in the area of enhancement and design. —Tina Fabliss Nails knowledge to keep my guests informed and upto date on their needs! It's not the money in the register so to speak, but if you don't know your stuff your register would be empty! —Katie Ver Bruggen Somers

6...financially, Pravana's KeraGlaze! Cost of product is low, and literally NO EXTRA TIME when I add it to another service. What do I really get the most out of my business? Giving back to the community. You can't put a price on that kind of feel-good! —Jean Brawn

7...Christmas time! It is my favorite time of year in the salon. It's crazy busy, everyone is usually happy, products fly of the shelf, gift certificates get sold--it's a fun and profitable time of year. —Shannon Huot Schmeling clientele and the education I get from them. The more it grows the better knowledge I have as a stylist. My ability to do the different hair textures and styles is a reflection of my hard work and dedication to my job. Seeing my clientele grow and my book fill up is a true gift. —Susie Denham heavenly shampoo, hand massage during chemical processing, remembering personal details, little extras beyond technical skill that make a guest feel like they are the only one! —Justina Jackson

10...repeat clients. Repeat clients are loyal because they are happy with the work you've done. Happy clients recommend you to their friends. They buy the products you recommend and they listen to your opinions because they trust you. The biggest, most profitable, and most important part of our business is the clientele. So when repeaters bring in business, buy your products, and come for you to do their hair, they are generating profit for you. Appreciate and work hard for your clientele, because eventually they will work with you to grow your business. —Samantha Lewis
