what a facial can do!!


I figured the best way to build a clientele is to be available. I had 2 ladies request today (sat) for facials. I left the house at 8:25 am and was in the door at 8:30 getting my room ready! As it turns out one client had to reschedule so that left me with an 1 1/2 hours free. So, I called one of my best pals and told her if she wanted a back facial or waxing or a facial, come on down and I would comp her, since I would get to practice on her. I didn't have to tell her twice! She buzzed over. Apparently she was out all nite and had quite the hang over and her face was lacking luster! Ah, not to worry I told her I will hook you up! I did a kaolin mask, (draws out all the oil and impurities... ah and alcohol) and then I did an eye treatment to smooth and plump up the tired look and then I put a spray of rose water with essential oil (that holds the moisture in ) on her face with a hydrating mask on top AND i put a collagen ampule on top of that and i put the steamer on! While that was going on I thought I'd treat her to an almond oil with lavender essential oil hand massage, after massaging that in i added an orange moisture cream and wrapped her hands in hot steamy towells. While that was setting, it was time to take the moisture mask off with a hot peppermint towells. Voila! I finished with a luminescent cream and her skin looked amazing. She did not look like she had been out all nite and her skin plumped right up. In fact as she was leaving a woman in the salon said "wow, can i book what she had?" absolutely! So, while my original client rescheduled I got my friend looking like a million bucks and I got another client. Slowly but surely, I'll get that clientele.
