Presentation is key to any salon service, and it starts the instant your client sits down. Small details in how you display your products show clients they are getting a more complete service, and you may be able to increase your prices as a result. Here are some clever ways salons are displaying their service products to their guests
Inspiration From the Kitchen
Sassi Nail Bar & Spa, Plant City, Fla.
For Sassi Nail Bar & Spa’s Peruvian Chocolate Mani/Pedi services, a large mixing bowl is used for the chocolate moisturizing syrup blend, and small silver condiment cups hold scrubs, creams, and masks. Since the service is inspired by desserts and uses actual food products like chocolate, coconut oil, and cocoa butter, the traditional kitchenware makes for an ideal display.
Keeping it Tropical All Year Round
The Palms Nail Bar & Spa, Salem, N.H.
The Palms Nail Bar & Spa uses small props to give guests the full tropical experience. Cuticle soaks are done in coconut shaped bowls, and small ceramic leaves showcase the different product during the service. Owner Debra Connolly says she also uses service appropriate mats for each service. This one is designed to be reminiscent of bamboo shoots and tiki huts.
A Little White Porcelain Can Go a Long Way
HIVE Salon & Spa, Los Cabos, Mexico
All of the mani/pedi services at HIVE are served in clean, white porcelain dishes on serving trays, and the dishes are garnished with little decorations to match each service’s theme. The Passion Fruit Pedicure has a colorful tropical flower and coconut shavings scattered over the products (pictured), and the Mojito Mani/Pedi features lime, mint, and sugar cane decorations to help accent the service’s theme.
Making It Crystal Clear
Nails to Di For Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada
At Nails to Di For, products are presented in crystal glass containers. The crystal glass makes an impressive visual but also serves a functional purpose to protect products and cut down on contamination. The elegant designs catch and reflect light to make products appear more attractive, and the glass containers are easy to clean and sanitize as well.
