Summer is here and clients are going to be pouring into your salon to get themselves sandal-ready. Here are some tips ffrom the pros on how to get your clients pedi-ready.
1. CND education ambassador Denise Arnold from Joie de Vivre Skin & Nail Care in Aldergrove, B.C. says, “Cut toenails properly. Cut them straight across the top and across the corners at a 45-degree angle. This will help prevent ingrown toenails and alleviate the pressure of nails pushing into the skin.”
2. “Brush up on foot and leg massage techniques. Remember to always ask your clients about areas of their feet and legs where they prefer more or less pressure,” says Arnold. Tony Cuccio, CEO of Cuccio, says that it’s the add-on service clients want. Along with its relaxing effect, with the right tools it can become an in-demand, detoxifying service that packs more value into each appointment. “Women are multi-tasking and budgeting and want an escape. The salon is where they can relax with a detoxifying service and a massage,” says Cuccio.
3. Save the massage for the end of the service—it leaves a great last impression!
