Products to Prep for Summer

Babe_Blog_SummerPrep

Summer is just around the corner, and we can just about smell the barbecues, beaches, and outdoor brunches already! Of course, it’s not all fun and food in the coming months—sun and heat-related hair damage is no joke, and you should be preparing your salon now to cater to the needs of your vacation-bound clients. So what should you have up and ready by the time June 21st rolls around? Read on to find out!

Heat-friendly after care products
Set your clients up with some after care products that style hair to perfection while protecting it from heat and UV radiation. This can include SPF-infused texturizing sprays and styling creams, or simply good, old-fashioned heat protectants. Make sure to put these products in a place of prominence so your clients can see them, and don’t be afraid to recommend them at the end of an appointment!

Dry Shampoo
Outdoor activities and additional summer sweatiness are, unfortunately, no excuse to over-wash hair extensions. Let your clients know that they can achieve the same level of cleanliness without the additional showers by incorporating some Dry Shampoo into their routine. Babe’s proprietary Dry Spray Shampoo is formulated to work perfectly with hair extensions, replacing every other shower and leaving a divine vanilla scent in its wake.

Fusion Go Belt
Chances are that your salon is hot enough in the summertime. Keep any additional heat from Babe’s Fusion Melting Connector contained using our brand-new Fusion Go Belt—a wearable, heat-resistant pouch that holds your activated Melting Connector safely and securely as you work. The best part is that the Fusion Go Belt enables you to move easily around your workspace, without needing to set down or reach around for your Melting Connector after every Fusion strand. Talk about liberating!

Blonde, funky, and pastel colors
Summer is a time when many clients want to try out lighter, bolder, and generally more playful hair colors, with hair extensions and mixed color alike. Give the people what they want by stocking up on blonde, vibrant, and pastel formulas, as well as blonde and funky hair extensions. We find that extension color #60 (Patsy) works as a great base for color makeovers. Seeing as it’s our lightest neutral shade, it readily absorbs any pigment added to it, without distorting the tone of the formulation.

Instant Hair
When you’re going from school to work to beach to bungalow and back again, flexibility is absolutely key. Clients may not want to commit to high-maintenance, semi-permanent extension methods when they’re gearing up for an eventful summer—especially since we don’t advise mixing professional methods and salt/chlorine water. Instant Hair is a simple compromise: it allows clients to enjoy the beautiful effect of semi-permanent hair extensions, without the sometimes limiting after care that accompanies it. All they have to do is take the extensions off before jumping into the water.

Flat-Tip
As far as semi-permanent extension methods go, we mentioned just recently that Flat-Tip is a great choice for summertime because of its forgiving installation/correction technique, its hat-compatibility, and it’s blow-in-the-breeze mobility. It’s also currently on sale at your local Babe distributor! Pay them a visit today and pick up some Flat-Tip extensions for 15% off—this May-June, only.

Marketing Materials
Finally, if you don’t have Babe Marketing Materials donning your salon walls, shelves, and mirrors already, now is the time to get with the program. They’re a fast and painless way to advertise your hair extension services to all of the clients who step foot in your space. And since summer tends to bring in a lot of new customers looking for hair transformations, it’s the perfect time to introduce them to Babe.

How are you prepping for summer in your salon? Let us know in the comments below!

Graduation Season

Babe_Blog_Graduation

Right now in the U.S., Pomp and Circumstance is playing on repeat. Students are packing their bags, putting away their textbooks, and donning their graduation gowns for a brisk march and a long ceremony that’ll initiate them into the next phase of their life as adults. It’s an interesting and overwhelming time, and stylists, as always, are there to make sure it’s beautiful, too. Whether it’s styling for the graduation itself or giving a young person an all-new look to commemorate their new life, graduation season presents a number of opportunities for growth and activity in your salon. So what should you do to seize them?

Schedule a targeted sale.
Offering graduating seniors a discount on hair services and/or aftercare products is a sure-fire way to attract new customers to your salon. A little attention and recognition can go a long way towards validating a client and fostering a positive relationship with them, so make it clear that you acknowledge their achievements and want to celebrate with them in the form of a well-placed sale!

Feature graduating students in your community.
Another, more personal way to recognize your graduating clients and make your salon a celebratory space is to feature their pictures, stories, and/or style transformations in the salon itself. Ask your clients whether they’d be willing to share these details, and offer them a reward or incentive for doing so! For example, you could select a few and give them full, complimentary makeovers, then show off the before & afters. This works as a promotion tactic, too.

Mentor a young stylist.
One distinct aspect of graduation season is a subtle-yet-persistent energy (sometimes bordering on anxiety) that comes from a whole new generation of young talent looking for something new to fill their time and bank accounts. Bring this energy and talent into your salon by mentoring a recent or soon-to-be grad who’s interested in hair and hair extensions. It’s the best form of training, for you and the student, and it could potentially produce a dedicated employee for your salon in the future.

Go back to school.
When it comes to new lives and new opportunities, it’s not just students who have all the fun. You can always return to school, get more training, or develop your career, too, and Babe has numerous resources to help you do just that. Sign up for a Mastery Tour or dealer class to interact with other top stylists and perfect your craft, or tag along with us to a Trade Show and help install hair extensions as a Babe show stylist. The next phase of your career is just around the corner.

How To Ward Off Spring Fever

Babe_Blog_SpringFever

Spring is like a siren song. It has an eerie-yet-agreeable way of making you want to jump ship to swim with the dolphins, frolic in the sunshine, or just sit outside with some sparkling water and a Kindle to keep you company. So what’s a busy, committed stylist to do when the urge to drop everything becomes too overwhelming to ignore?

Make the salon your paradise.
You don’t need to deprive yourself of fresh air and sunlight to do your work. If your heart is calling for springtime, bring the springtime into your salon. Open all the blinds, dim the inside lights, crack a window or install an air purifier to freshen up the air (which helps a load with allergies, too!). Then get to the good stuff—light some candles for a dew-like scent, play some gentle, upbeat music, and fill the space with flowers, which is sure to have you smiling ear-to-ear in no time.

Give yourself a fresh start.
Maybe your daily routine has gotten a bit old, or you’ve gotten a little too familiar with your space. That means it’s time to switch things up! Go on a spring cleaning spree, rearrange your salon furniture, update your tools and materials, and give your routine a total makeover. You can do this by streamlining your processes and making them more efficient, by introducing new services, and even by revising your pricing—something you should absolutely do now and then to account for your added experience and expertise!

Take a holiday.
If you’re still feeling sluggish, trapped, unmotivated, or under the weather, take an actual break. You’re a stylist, not a martyr, and you deserve a vacation just as much as any other dedicated worker. Give yourself permission to stay at home for a couple of days, or plan a trip to the destination of your choice. Sometimes the only remedy to the call of spring is to literally go outside.

Revive your practice.
Maybe you’re dealing with something a little more profound than just spring fever or a little burnout. If you’re feeling tired with your work, unfulfilled by your passion, or limited in your prospects, it may be time to up the ante on your career. Here at Babe, we always offer stylists opportunities for professional development, continued education, and interaction with other stylists from around the country. Catch us at a Mastery Tour class, come see us at a Trade Show, or stop by a dealer event to get started. In time, you could even be invited to events as an instructor or Babe show stylist, elevating your career and expanding your horizons on a regular basis!

Do you have any advice for warding off spring fever? What has worked in your salon? Let us know in the comments below!

The Best Ways to Invest Your Tax Return

Babe_Blog_TaxReturn

Tax season is awful until you get your tax return check—then it transforms into an opportunity. That little bit of extra income for the month can be saved, spent, or invested. You can apply it to your next vacation or to your ongoing education. Here at Babe, we like to invest our tax returns in hair extension tools, courses, and professional development. Here’s why you might want to do the same!

Flexibility
Getting some spare cash opens up a world of options that you may not otherwise consider pursuing, and Babe is constantly offering new and exciting avenues for exploration. Look into our Lash Extension products and courses, discover our Babe Lash serum and makeup line, or dive into Fusion Micro Bonding with peace of mind and copious flexibility.

Convenience
Our products are designed to make your job as a stylist easier and more efficient. Shave time off of your installations with the Quick Pick Hair Parter, Hair Organizer, and our method-specific tools, and cut down your re-installation time with the Styrofoam Mannequin Head. Employ our quickest installation method—Tape-In—to achieve a full-head installation in under an hour. We’re here to streamline every aspect of the hair extension process, so investing in our products means unparalleled and ongoing convenience in your salon!

Reputation
Being up-to-date on all of the latest extension techniques and equipped with the newest hair extension methods and devices will make you a stand-out in the hair extension space. A well-stocked hair extension closet and well-maintained hair extension tools will indicate that you are a professional who is prepared for any extension job that comes your way. Investing in Babe’s products and services equals more human and manufactured capital in your salon, and more trust/respect from your clients and recognition from your peers. A good reputation is vital for a sustainable business, and it’ll help you to leverage your skills and increase your income.

Return on Investment
Ultimately, Babe tools and services enable you to generate more income in your salon, and to do so evermore quickly and easily. Well-made tools that last through many years of installations cost relatively little per use, but help to generate significantly more revenue. Tools that help to cut down on installation time allow you to earn more per hour, and to fit more installations into your schedule. And our top-notch hair extensions keep your clients coming back for move-up after move-up, so you can earn reliably and continuously throughout.

How to Use Easter Eggs in Your Salon

Babe_Blog_EasterEggs

Easter eggs are not only for kids. Many companies use them as a marketing strategy to add a little bit of surprise and excitement to an otherwise ordinary affair or transaction. This Easter season, we’re going to share some ways you can incorporate this fun little feature into your salon!

Hidden coupons.
Have you ever thought about hiding a discount coupon inside of the magazines in your salon’s waiting area? Or sneaking a free product offer into a little-noticed area of the mirror? As opposed to a generic ad or promotion, Easter eggs like these seem more serendipitous and personal for clients who happen upon them, and can produce the kinds of gratifying feelings that encourage shopping. Reward your customers for their presence, patience, and attention with an incentive to invest further in your business.

Tailored messages.
Show your clients some gratitude with discreet “thank you” notes or brighten up their day with secret affirmations. One example that we particularly like is posting a small sign on the wall opposite the mirrors (that the client can see when they look into the mirror) with the text “Hello, beautiful!” or “Thank you for being here!” printed in reverse so that the client can read it easily via the reflection.

Little invitations.
If you have a salon event in mind that demands a limited number of attendees, or if you want to generate interest in an event by making it seem secret or exclusive, consider hiding your invitations as Easter eggs around the salon. Tape it to the ceiling above the washing stations, pin it to the inside of your client’s smock, or leave it in the bathroom underneath the bar of soap. Include messaging that indicates that your client has found something secret and special, like “Congratulations,” “Good eye!,” or even, “Psssst….have you heard about such-and-such event?,” so that they don’t mistake the Easter egg for just another discarded piece of paper.

There are many variations of these ideas that you can try out in your salon. Come up with a symbol that you hide in multiple unnoticed places around your salon, then offer a discount to anyone who asks about it. If you have a website, hide a graphic, image, or link that leads your user to a special offer. Tape a hidden promo to the back of a random aftercare product for the buyer to discover later. Let your imagination go wild!

And don’t forget to take advantage of our current Babe Tag sale and the colorful little discounts that go with it! Just purchase a Babe Color Swatch from your local distributor and find three distinct discount tags inside. Enjoy!

Conquering Consultation Madness

Babe_Blog_ConsultationMadness

Sometimes consultations are smooth, speedy affairs. Other times, they’re absolute disasters. To make sure that you’re getting more of the former and less of the latter, take stock of these consultation-specific tips! And, of course, if you have any questions or concerns, get in touch with Babe HQ at 888-840-BABE (2223).

Maintain an organized salon schedule.
An organized salon is a calm and efficient salon, and this reflects on both stylists and clients. Help everyone in the space feel as centered and collected as possible by managing your salon schedule to account for longer-than-expected appointments, lunch breaks, and general breathers. The most important feature of an organized salon schedule? No double-booking!

Focus on one client at a time.
Don’t attempt to conduct a consultation for more than one client at a time. Even if they’re friends or siblings, including another customer in your consultation will divide your attention and compromise the quality of your service. Don’t put yourself in a position where you inadvertently cater more to one client than another, or let your decisions for one client bleed into the next. That being said, it’s perfectly fine to let your client bring a friend or sibling (or whomever) to their consultation so long as they are simply observing or offering moral support.

Have all tools and materials ready beforehand.
Consultations involve some explanation and demonstration, so know what you’re going to cover, and have everything on the scene before your client walks through the door. This could include a Color Swatch (currently featured in our March-April promotion), hair extension samples from various different methods, hair care products, etc. This will allow you to focus on the consultation process, and not on the whereabouts of all your supplies.

Go to the appointment with no expectations.
Even though you’re the experienced party in the hair extension consultation, you’re not the one who calls the shots. Ultimately, it’s the client who determines the success of any service, so it’s their expectations that you should focus on—not your own. The only thing you can do is establish the limits for the service (that is, what is or is not possible in a given situation). So don’t push your ideas onto your client, but rather phrase your opinions as recommendations. Allow the expectations to emerge and evolve gradually over the course of the consultation—as a dialogue between yourself and your client.

Be upfront about all costs, liabilities, and procedures.
Again, consultations are designed to lend clarity to an otherwise complicated process—don’t skip or skim over the necessary discussion of costs and risks. Help your client to be as informed as possible so they can make an assured decision. This will help you in the end, too, as you’ll be able to better meet their expectations and achieve a successful end result.

Gain your client’s explicit approval.
To make sure there are no gaps in communication, and to protect your investment and reputation, have your client literally sign off on all the details of the procedure beforehand. That way, should they come in afterwards complaining about some detail, you can refer back to this agreement to settle the dispute. Revisit the agreement on the day of the service, too, to absolutely ensure that you and your client are on the same page.

Simple Ways to Transform Your Business

Babe_Blog_TransformBusiness

It’s the end of 2016. Regardless of how your resolutions for this year turned out, it’s never too late to set yourself up for a good start next year. Today, as our last blog before 2017, we’re going to list some simple things you can do to give your hair extension business a makeover for the new year (we already know that you’re really good at makeovers). So let’s get to it!

Redecorate.
This is a fairly straightforward one—transform your salon space by moving around the furniture, adding some seasonal decorative elements, or some business-specific marketing materials and displays. Not only will this revitalize the salon itself, it’ll also clue your clients in on all the services that you offer.

Update your inventory.
Depending on your inventory management style, you may be overdue for an inventory update. In 2016 alone, Babe introduced a number of new extension methods, colors, and tools, including our Instant Hair line, Flat-Tips, Fusion Cutters, Hair Organizers, Styrofoam Mannequin Heads, and several ombre shades. With all of the new additions, you may find that you’re missing a few revolutionary items in your salon.

Master a new method.
There’s no better way to boost your extension business than to introduce a whole new method to your arsenal. Our Online Education portal is more equipped than ever to teach you the ins and outs of our various extension methods, from I-Tip, Tape-In, and Fusion to Lash extensions. Enroll today for access to the training videos, including Babe certification (if you so choose). Certification in Babe extension methods puts you on our Certified Stylist list, so potential new clients can find you easily from our site. You’ll also be able to provide your clients with more service options.

Introduce Instant Hair services.
Speaking of more service options, Instant Hair extensions provide a load of opportunities to extend new services to your clients, including extension fitting, trimming, and coloring services. We even have an Instant Hair Rewards program to give you more returns for your investment. Learn more about how you can use Instant Hair to enhance your business by clicking here.

Introduce a customer rewards program.
Take a cue from the Instant Hair Rewards program and introduce your own rewards for your most loyal clients. Enable them to collect points for attending all of their recommended maintenance appointments, collecting all of their hair extension upkeep tools, or bringing a friend into the salon. The possibilities are endless.

Reboot your enthusiasm.
Motivation is the best indicator of success, so get back in the hair extension groove by treating yourself to some live Babe events. We offer trade show classes, Mastery Tour events, and even local-level courses with certain Babe distributors, all of which are guaranteed to increase your enthusiasm and improve your extension skills! Connect with fellow Babe stylists and learn in an engaging, fun environment. You can find our next destination right here.

Get a head start on your best extension year ever by following these tips, and let us know how it goes! You can share pictures and stories to any of our social media pages.

Until then, Happy Almost-New Year!

What Is a Hair Care Consultation?

Babe_Blog_Consultation

We’re all familiar with hair extension consultations—those all-too-important appointments where you and your client work out the expectations, procedures, and specifications of the hair extension installation. But the consultation format is useful for many other hair situations, too. From color jobs, hair relaxing services, and even haircuts and general hair care, meeting with a client to talk out the details of any given process is extremely useful for everyone involved. There’s no better way to build rapport, ensure satisfaction, and preserve top-notch hair quality all at once. So this week, we’re going to talk you through a potential hair care consultation, and invite you to try it out in your salon soon!

What:
A hair care consultation is an appointment where you and your client will discuss the ideal hair care regimen for your client’s hair type. You’ll help them to classify their hair based on various type scales (oily to dry, porous to nonporous, curly to straight, etc.) and to formulate their hair care goals and metrics (so they know how to track their improvement).

Why:
Hair care is important in and of itself as part of basic human hygiene, and it’s additionally important for encouraging a client’s self-esteem and confidence. Hair is a loaded topic in our image-based society, and as stylists, it’s our job to help our clients achieve their ideal hair conditions. Furthermore, good ongoing hair care ensures that our work is viewed in the best possible light, and that the products of our efforts (and our clients’ investments) remain intact long after the salon service is complete. After all, your client’s hair is your business card, portfolio, and/or resume; your business will grow when your client’s friends ask about their hair, and your client speaks affirmingly of your work.

When:
When you perform a hair care consultation will depend largely on what other services your client is seeking/receiving from you. If your client is also a hair extension user, we suggest that you conduct the hair care consultation after the hair extensions have been installed so you can more effectively direct their hair care regimen with product recommendations. Of course, hair care requirements should be touched upon during a hair extension consultation so that the client is aware of the commitment they’re making, but hair care specifics can reasonably be saved for later so as not to overwhelm the client with information that they cannot immediately use. Consider separating the hair care consultation from the installation appointment by a couple of days to encourage your clients to adhere to the 48-hour rule.

How:
Ask your client in advance to think about their hair history, hair experience, and hair goals before arriving to the consultation, and advise them to bring images of their hair inspiration and a list of their currently used or favorite products to the appointment. You can do this by providing them with a short question card for this purpose. Have an iPad or other electronic device handy in the event that you or your client need to look up images or information during the consultation.

Invite your client to describe their hair in their own words. Have them describe their hair care process, and ask whether they’re satisfied with the results they’re seeing. Get a sense for how much time, energy, and/or money your client is willing to spend on their hair care process, and develop a range of steps (say, 2-4), a loose shampoo and conditioning schedule, and a budget based on the information they provide.

Conduct a few measurements of the client’s hair, identifying its: length, individual hair thickness, overall hair volume, porosity, oiliness/dryness, level of damage or health, curl pattern, and color (shade and tone—you may use the Color Swatch for this). Modify your product and regimen recommendations based on these details, as well as your client’s hair care history and goals. If your client is a professional extension user, help them to understand the differences between their natural hair and extension hair, and alert them to products that cater to a range of hair types.

If possible, provide the hair care consultation for free, generating revenue from aftercare product sales, instead. You can set the client up with product samples if they’re on the fence, or even with an After Care Kit, which is useful for both extension clients and non-extension clients alike. This season we’re offering a special, limited edition version of our After Care Kit, complete with our Dry Spray Shampoo, Hair Extension Brush, hair care card, and a chic little beauty bag to hold it all. Visit your local distributor to take advantage of the promotion.

How to Sell After Care to Your Clients

Babe_Blog_AfterCare

Hair extension after care is a big deal. In a 2-month window (after the initial installation and before the next move-up appointment), roughly 99.9% of the hair extension process happens outside of the salon—because what’s a 2-hour installation to 1,462 hours of wear? That’s not to undermine the importance of that first hair extension experience; the sustainability of the hair extensions will depend in large part on the quality of the installation itself. But 2 months is a long time—enough to do a lot of good or a lot of harm. So how do you convey the importance of aftercare to your clients, and help them to follow through on it?

We’ve written some tidbits about this before. Check out “How to Make Sure Your Clients Are Taking Care of Their Extensions,” or “Demonstrating Proper Techniques to Your Clients.” This time, though, we’re going to make a more specific recommendation: the After Care Kit. Babe offers a simple, introductory after care product set—complete with a Hair Extension Brush, Dry Spray Shampoo, and a hair care instruction card—to initiate each and every client to the task of maintaining their hair extensions. We encourage stylists to carry this kit in their salons, and even to include it as part of the installation package for first-time extension wearers. With only a couple of items involved, the After Care Kit is the easiest access point to a world of varied and sometimes ornate hair care products, which can be overwhelming to new clients. This November-December, we’re even offering a limited edition version of the kit with a special (and chic!) carrying bag that’ll make the hair care process that much more appealing (visit your local distributor to check it out)!

When you’re showing this kit to a new hair extension client, be sure to mention the following:

Hair care is important even for your natural hair.
Let’s forget about the extensions for a minute and examine your ordinary hair care routine. At the very least, you shampoo, condition, and brush your hair with some regularity. You do this so you can keep your hair looking its best. It’s the same thing for hair extensions, but with a few extra rules.

Hair extensions require their own specific hair care.
Even if your natural hair does well with a common shampoo, a weekly condition, and minimal brushing, your hair extensions are a different story. They’re different from your natural hair, so they’ll need custom treatment. This usually involves scarce washing, frequent conditioning (always below the bonds), mindful product selection (NO sulfates!), and gentle, daily brushing with a hair extension-friendly brush.

You have the power to perfect or destroy your extensions.
The hair extension process doesn’t end when you step out of the salon—it proceeds throughout the duration of your hair extension wear. That’s anywhere from a couple of weeks to 3+ months, depending on your intentions. Needless to say, the after care portion of your hair extension experience easily overshadows the consultation and installation parts, so the damage you do (or prevent) during this period can make or break that initial work.

More than anything, let your client know that they are a key player in their hair extension process! You can do this from the very beginning by encouraging their input and participation during the consultation and installation phases. There’s nothing more beautiful than feeling empowered, and your client will glow a little bit brighter when she realizes that her head of hair is partially her own accomplishment. With resolve like that, there’s no doubt that the hair will stay looking great, too.

Got questions? Leave them in the comments below and we’ll get back to you ASAP!

How to Make the Most of the Changing Seasons

Babe_Blog_ChangingSeasons

A new season can mean a lot more than just a change in temperature. There are different holidays on your calendar, new fashions in the clothing racks, new foods in the produce isle, and, maybe most importantly, new items on your to-do list. Because as lovely and exciting as a new season can be, it can also be pretty stressful. As a stylist, chances are you’re gearing up to accommodate a busier schedule, with every customer demanding the latest style or trend spotted on the runway. So how do you make the most of it? Here are a couple of tips:

Prep your staff.
First up, huddle your stylists or coworkers together for a strategy session. Ideally, you should be having recurring meetings anyway, but it’s 110% necessary around season-shifting time. Talk about your expected client volume, how you’ll divvy up work, whether you need a waitlist, etc. Make sure that everyone knows what to expect in the coming weeks. And, if you’re going to be doing something special—like any of the things below—make sure you talk about all that, too.

Schedule sales for anticipated services.
If things are going to be crazy anyway, you might as well go all out. Lure even the most salon-shy customers to your seat with seasonal deals and/or discounts on recurring services. Make fall-pallette color jobs just a little bit cheaper than the rest, offer discounted summer blowouts for clients who bring their friends, or instate a 10% sale on trims, move-up appointments, and/or Instant Hair! Whatever the season calls for. And, if you’re extra-ambitious, you could even make an event out of it. Anyone up for a Halloween costume party at the salon? Winners get prizes!

Update your featured products.
New weather means new hair care concerns, so make sure that your featured products—the ones that are immediately visible to clients—cater to their current needs. Pull together your moisturizing serums and anti-frizz sprays for fall and winter, and your UV-protectants and texturizing sprays for spring and summer. If you have seasonally-themed products—like pumpkin spice-scented conditioner, rosewater spray, or the like—bring those to the forefront, too (after all, we’re all suckers for that pumpkin spice).

Introduce new offerings.
A new season is a great opportunity to roll out some new salon offerings, be they products or services. Adding a new extension method to your toolkit? Wrap it into your seasonal sales to incentivize your clients to jump onboard. They’re likely already hyped by all the new seasonal developments, so a new service could send their enthusiasm through the roof!

Decorate!
Honestly, one of the best parts of welcoming a new season into your salon has got to be the decorating. You know—making it feel like autumn, winter, spring, or summer, inside and out! Bring out the jack-o-lanterns, the holiday lights, the flowers, or the seashells! It’ll be a festive touch, not just for your clients, but also for you and the other stylists! You are the ones who spend most of your time in that space. Make it a place in which you enjoy working!

What are you doing in your salon to play up the changing season? Tell us in the comments below! And don’t forget to share pictures of your decorated salons with us!
