With June comes the official start of summer. And summer is one of the busiest times of the year for estheticians, as clients are heavily reliant on you to make them beach-ready. Mani/Pedi? Check. Wax job? Check. Skin prepped for sun? Check. Without the spa and salon industry, things would be dire out there. There’s a reason beautification is […]
For our May promotions, we’ve chosen to highlight two products that look and seem extremely similar. In fact, we’re willing to bet that if we showed you a photo of each, you’d have no idea which was which. That’s why we’re here: to once again tell you that looks can be deceiving, and send a reminder that the difference […]
It’s the start of the month, which can only mean one thing: it’s time to talk about promotions. While our full promotions list is far too long for us to cover every featured product in detail, we can certainly talk about a couple this month—especially since bikini season is officially open.
As you know, each month we shine a spotlight on our monthly promotions. Typically, we pair up our spa and salon products with similar professional applications, such as wax treatments, nail care, skin care—basically all of the awesome things that professional estheticians do. However, this month we’re highlighting two products that are all-purpose all-stars. Honestly, we don’t know how […]
Maybe your clients are dreaming of the beach, even in the dead of winter. Maybe they’re headed for a ski retreat, where they’ll hit the slopes and then burn off the rest of the day in a hot tub. Maybe they’re prepping for their Valentine’s Day date night. Or maybe they’re simply masochists, and enjoy […]
Valentine’s Day presents an ideal marketing opportunity for professional spas. While there are plenty of businesses that look to capitalize on the most romantic day of the year, this one is tailor-made for the beauty industry. However, with the bulk of your clientele being female, when it comes to Valentine’s Day, spas and salons are […]
New Year’s Day brings the promise of a clean slate. However, just as we’re sweeping up the confetti the reality sets in: in most parts of the country, the harsh winter weather has arrived. This kind of weather is murder on skin. Your clients need you now, more than ever. That’s why this month’s promotions are skin-centric, […]
With the holiday season officially upon us, we’re willing to bet this is one of your busiest times of the year. Think about it: your clients are about to embark on the enjoyable but exhausting whirlwind of social engagements that demand they look their best. Between the office parties and family gatherings, estheticians should be seeing a revolving door of clients hoping […]
Ready or not, the holiday season is upon us. Sure, November’s just getting underway. But before you know it you’ll be basting a turkey, fighting your way through Black Friday, chopping down your Christmas tree—and then (gasp!) 2015 will be staring us in the face. Before we have to start sorting all of that out, let’s take a deep breath […]
As the leaves turn and the wind becomes brisk, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. The blaze of summer is far behind us—even though in the South, this was one of our mildest summers ever. With the meat of the football schedule to look forward to, as well as nights around the fire pit or […]
While there are a variety of traits that make for the best professional spa and salon products, one of the most underrated features is versatility. When it comes to disposable supplies, you obviously want to get your money’s worth.
Okay, let’s get real for a second: it’s important to take care of your face. While that may seem like an obvious statement, there are plenty of examples of people who do the exact opposite. That’s why professional spa and salon owners are so important: they often take better care of their clients’ faces than their clients […]
Of course, the start of July always brings out our deep patriotism. Saying “Peace out!” to Great Britain with a little doc known as the Declaration of Independence is truly a cause for celebration. We love the 4th of July, and we’ll be barbecuing, picnicking, and parade-watching like the rest of America, all while blaring […]
Winter fades away, as the cold, grey days grant birth to blue skies and sunshine. All those scarves, gloves, and mittens are pushed to the back of the closet for another nine months. With nails uncovered and spring demanding a new ‘do, professional spas and salons brace for an onslaught. Because it’s on. It’s on […]
Snow? Who needs it? All it does is cause all kinds of problems. With the dead of winter upon us, it would seem like the services of professional spas and salons might fall by the wayside in the month of February. With icy winds chafing faces and fingernails hidden by gloves or mittens, why would […]
This isn’t really news, because we’ve mentioned it before: we love us some trade shows. One of our favorites is the International Salon and Spa Expo (ISSE), which will be held on January 25-27 in Long Beach, CA. We’ll be there, and we’ve got a new bag of promotional tricks up our sleeves for you […]
If you know us here at Intrinsics, you know we love us some promotions. But this month, we have a special in-store promotion we’re running with our valued distributor, CosmoProf. Really, one of the only things we love more than promotions is some CosmoProf.
After surviving the Black Friday shopping madness, we’re willing to bet most professional spas and salons have seen an uptick in appointments. There’s simply no way to deal with the angry mob without your hair or nails taking a beating. Luckily, that’s all behind us, and now it’s Christmas Day or bust.
As the weather turns, and a chill greets us in the mornings and evenings, we start to reach for sweaters and jackets. Sure, come November your clients have far less skin showing. But their hair and their nails? They’ve got absolutely nowhere to hide. Your clients still need you. Desperately.
