How well do you know your customer? In new research, The Pink Report, conducted by beauty brand firm, The Beauty Company, Shel Pink of SpaRitual and Michelle Toma Olson of Tini Beauty share insight into what motivates your client to get her nails done.
Why Women Love Nails
Nails are an accessible luxury for women of all ages—it’s a relaxing escape. What is your salon doing to create the ultimate beauty escape for your clients?
The Colour Wheel and Beyond
Did you know that 70 per cent of women are always looking for the latest colour? When it comes to texture, gloss takes priority—and the love is strong for what’s shiny, sparkly and metallic. Knowing this, keep these bold hues and a variety of textures on display regularly, as this can be an easy sell.
Plus, while 73 per cent of women prefer traditional hues, such as pink and red, the younger demographic opts for blues, greens and yellows. Women over 35 will wear bolder colours on their toes. Knowing this, don’t forget to highlight the hues that will appeal to each individual demographic.
She Still Loves Polish
Most women own at least 30 bottles of nail polish—and no matter the amount, they keep buying more! And, 64 per cent have a favourite go-to polish. Why not ask her what her favourites are, the next time she’s in for her appointment?
Where Women Get Their Nails Done
Women living in urban areas will go to salons but the further away they are from the city, the more likely they’ll do their nails at home. With a whopping 50 per cent of women do their nails at home, every week, offering polishes and at-home nail care is a must for your retail business!
