A new day, a new chance.

Something about the New year really gets me excited.  I mean, I do LOVE Christmas (it’s my fave holiday) but resolutions remind me of new beginnings and new starts.  Promises to myself to try to be better, and to set goals.  New years make me think of new days and how every new day gives us another chance.

Price Concerns

There’s an article that I recently read about different nail salons in the city that violate health violations and it got me thinking about how people are always asking about my price points being so high for services…

Happy New Year!

Winnipeg-New-Years-Eve-Fireworks

We are starting a new year and the freshair girls and I are going to be trying out a local gym in our city this month.  I know it’s so typical to start a workout regimen at this time of the year but, it is what it is.  I don’t know about you, but holidays have kicked us around with baking and heavy meals.  And the cold is no better, it makes me want nothing but poutine and afternoon naps next to a fire.

Those skin products everyone needs….

With it being the start of a new year, people start changing different things about their daily routine, eating habits, or just habits in general. So why not start the new year off right with a great skin cleaning routine! As an esthetician, I feel that there are certain products every girl needs to help get their skin feeling amazing. I stick to 3 things: a cleanser, a toner and a moisturizer. These 3 things have helped keep my skin feeling clean and refreshed while looking great.

Pedicures, or any foot treatment, are great for everyone and any age! So why should you spoil yourself and indulge in getting your feet pampered…

FOR AL

Smile

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

That’s the fresh perspective…

Too hot!

Thermometer-537x358Now that we are into the swing of things (temperature wise), what plans do you have for your hair’s protection?  Are you ready for sun?  The damage that can be caused to your unprotected hair can be controlled!  You just need to know a few simple things.

1) Wear a hat.  This type of protection is the best and keeps the sun rays directly OFF your locks.  You may be hot but your hair will thank you.

2) Try to use products that contain SPF.  If you can’t wear a hat, this is the next best thing.

ARE YOU BEING SERVED?

We had an in-salon class on Tuesday about consultations.  We really focused on the things that need to happen when you meet a client for the first time.  The way we had been conducting our ‘first-time’ experiences were okay, but not great.  With the help of Kevin Murphy educator, Timothy Durant, we were able to learn how to better serve our clients.
