Been a while since you upgraded your menu? One of the first points of contact with potential customers, your menu is a reflection your business. If it is old, outdated or uninviting with incoherent or lazy descriptions, potential new clients will be turned off and look elsewhere.

A menu refresh can modernise your salons and your clients perceptions, and attract new clientele using a few handy tips below:

  • Match the menu style to your salon décor – keeping a consistent branding image shows professionalism.
  • Use colourful and descriptive wording that sells each service or treatment. For example: Instead of using “Gel Colour” as a service description, play on the strengths of the products you are using to sell the service as a unique treatment offering, such as “Oxygenating Gel Colour with EVO By Bio Sculpture”
  • Emphasise or highlight your most popular or profitable services by placing them in their own box/section. This will immediately attract the eye of the client, and allow you to promote the features of these services more effectively

3) Learn new skills

Offering new and exciting services will help you differentiate your business from other competing salons. New and advanced services will also keep your clients engaged and excited with the increased variety and complexity of choices.

Properly training and educating your staff and clients on the benefits of at-home nail care will translate in increased retail sales as well as more satisfied clients.

5) Mid-week offers

We all know mid-week can be a bit slow. Try and drum up some business by focusing on unique mid-week specials. These may include free spa treatment with gel manicure services, discount on selected retail products, or even a treatment upgrade.

Email marketing is an effective way to reach your list of clients, and can allow you to personalise the marketing message based on your clients service history.

6) Reward your VIP’s

Keep Your Bio Gel Nails Beautiful

 

Bio Tips To Keep Your Bio Gel Nails BEAUTIFUL

Even though Bio Sculpture is the only 5 Star Safety Rated gel system in the market today, a little extra TLC can help keep your nails looking beautiful and healthy.

Below are some helpful tips for looking after your Bio Gel nails:

1) NEVER Pick, Pull or Bite

This will likely cause the gel to be forcefully removed from the natural nail, bringing with it layers of nail and ultimately resulting in weakened or damaged nails. Removal should be done by a qualified Bio Sculpture therapist who has been trained on how to safety remove your gel nails without causing any damage. Alternatively, enquire about our DIY removal and home care kits from a Bio Sculpture Salon near you, which contains everything you need to safety remove your Bio Sculpture Gel and keep your nails healthy.


2) Protect Your Nails

Whether working in the garden or doing some cleaning around the house, simply wearing gloves can protect your nails from dehydrating detergents and harmful bleaches, resulting in longer lasting wear and shine.

3) Top Up Your Shine

Regularly apply Bio Sculpture’s High Gloss Top Coat, which has been specially formulated with a sun filter that protects the Gel from UV light exposure and will keep your talons looking shiny. After about 1 week, easily remove the High Gloss Top Coat with Bio Sculpture’s Polish Remover and reapply a shiny new High Gloss Top Coat layer.

4) Keep Regular Appointments

Nails grow quick, and after only a week or two you will begin to notice some signifiant regrowth. It is recommended that you have an appointment every 2 to 3 weeks to help maintain cuticle health with Bio Sculpture’s natural nail treatments, and to have the Bio Sculpture gel removed and/or reapplied. Removal is an important part of nail health and safety, and should be done by a qualified Bio Sculpture therapist who can safely remove the gel or polish without damaging the natural nail plate.

5) Try A Spa Treatment

A Bio Sculpture manicure and pedicure spa treatment is a great way of getting moisture back into your nails, hands and feet. Inspired by nature, Bio Sculpture’s Luxury Spa Range products are infused with heavenly aromatics and nourishing essential oils such as rose geranium, ylang ylang, lavender, mint mask and jojoba, that help keep your skin feeling smooth and hydrated.

Health Focus – Cuticle Care


Cuticles, cuticles, cuticles!

Often mistreated, the cuticles play an important part in nail health – acting as a protective barrier for the fast growing soft keratin that eventually becomes your nails.

If neglected, your cuticles may become damaged, dry or harden, and allow microscopic dust and organisms to penetrate the area under the cuticle. This may not only cause discomfort and pain, but may lead to an infection that impacts on the overall health of your nail, and can leave them feeling soft, discoloured or misshaped.

Below are some helpful tips to keep your cuticles healthy, and your nails strong and beautiful!

1) Keep ’em strong!

Like your skin, your cuticles need regular moisturising to maintain their health and structure. By regularly applying Nail Treatments like Bio Sculpture’s Cuticle Oil or Nail & Cuticle Conditioner, your cuticles will be enriched with nourishing jojoba, ginseng and almond oils keeping them healthy, strong and flexible.

TIP: Be sure to check the ingredients of your Nail Treatments – some nail hardeners and cuticle conditioners may contain toluene sulphonamide or formaldehyde which are irritants and can further damage the skin. Bio Sculpture products are 5 FREE, meaning they do not contain toluene sulphonamide and formaldehyde, as well as toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and formaldehyde.

Healthy Treatments = Healthy Nails

2) Leave it to the professionals

Tempted to bite, cut, pick, trim or clip those unruly cuticles? Think again. Cutting or trimming cuticles at home increases the risk of breaking that protective barrier, and allowing germs to enter and infect the cuticle or nail area. It is crucial that you go to a well trained Nail Technician, who understands how to provide a safe and healthy manicure service without damaging the cuticle.

All Bio Sculpture Nail Technicians have undergone training to ensure your nails and cuticles are professionally treated and cared for.

3) If you suspect that you have a cuticle infection, GO TO THE DOCTOR!

Doctors can easily treat cuticle infections with a range of antibacterial and anti-fungal treatments. Avoid getting gel or polish manicures or pedicures until your infection has gone, or you have received the all clear from the Doc.

FACT: An infection in the cuticle is called paronychia, and an infection in the nail plate is called onychomycosis

4) When it comes to your overall nail health – NEVER ACCEPT ANYTHING LESS THAN 5 STAR!

Bio Sculpture® Gel is the only clinically proven, 5-STAR SAFETY RATED nail system on the market today. Bio Sculpture Therapists have been trained to provide world-class nail care service that can shape, lengthen and condition of your nails without causing any damage to the natural nail!

2. Apply a Bio Sculpture Base Gel layer. Cure.

3. Apply two layers of the lighter Colour Gel (i.e. #180 Heart & Soul). Cure.

5. Place small dots of Soft Gel onto the wet Colour Gel layer, using the tip of the Upper Arch Brush. Cure.

*Wait for the Gel on the tip of your brush to form a droplet, then place it.

*Work from an image of reptile skin as guidance to where smaller or larger droplets should go.

6. Apply the appropriate Strengthening Gel to seal the nail art.

7. Cure. Dual Cleanse and Refine.

8. Apply Gloss Gel for shine. Cure.

NOTE:

To create dual coloured bubbles, dot down tiny Colour Gel droplets into the centre of each / some of the Soft Gel dots before curing.

What Colour Suits Your Complexion?

Compliment your complextion

2015 has arrived and this year we celebrate the kaleidoscope of skin colour all around the globe. Bio Sculpture® wants to encourage you to take care of your unique skin type. Love your natural tone, flaunt those freckles or beauty spots and embrace your peerless colour complexion by complimenting it with NAIL COLOUR.

Colour Skin Tone 1

There are no rules when it comes to colour although certain colours compliment certain complexions better than others. 

Determining what side of the colour wheel will embellish your complexion:

Some complexions suit just about any colour. For the rest of us, some people’s skin has a gold/yellow undertone, while others have a blue/pink undertone. Analyse your wrist. If the veins appear blueish, you have a ‘cool/ocean’ complexion. If they appear greenish, you have a ‘warm/earth’ complexion. This specific undertone will help determine the colours you wear best. Another way to analyse, is to drape a red-orange scarf around your neck. Analyse your face. Then drape a red-violet scarf and compare the two. Some people suit both, but most will definitely fall either in the ‘cool/ocean’- or ‘warm/earth’ complexion category. The same test can be done by using a yellow-green and blue-green scarf.

Understanding Colour - Spectrum

Skin tone tips:

Fair/Pale skin tones

Stick to darker colours that contrast the skin – whites and pale colours might appear washed out.

Olive/Medium skin tones

Go either light, or dark. Be careful of brown, yellow or green undertones. It could make the skin appear yellow.

Darker skin tones

Pretty much any colour goes! Be careful of going too bright, too white or too dark/black.

Skin Tone 2

As all skin tones differ, use these tips as guidelines but never stop experimenting with COLOUR!
