We are nearing the end of the social media #IAMLICENSED series. I hope you have enjoyed it and that it has elevated awareness for your community. For this next to last post, here is an excerpt from Doug Schoon’s upcoming book Face-to-Face Volume 2.
This is a practice many of us are familiar with. If you didn’t know any better before now, then this is a great opportunity for change and education. Explain that you have learned something new in your quest to care for your guests’ natural nails to the best of your ability at all times. Change is a sign of that learning and will help the salon client know what to avoid in the future should you become unavailable.
