Gloss Media provides free flat-screen televisions as well as free programming to entertain your clients while they are getting services. The programming consists of short video clips in a variety of female-focused categories including fashion shows, style, gossip, cooking, and nature. The programming cycle is approximately 90 minutes in length and is changed every week. “What is unique about Gloss TV is that your salon can also be incorporated into the programming by displaying custom messages on the screen,” says Lea Ghandour, vice president of business development for Gloss. “For example, we can add a ‘welcome to the salon’ message, your service menu, your specials, or even wish a customer a happy holiday.”

The company is currently working with about 250 nail salons around the country, focused in the top 10 markets. If you have a large, high-end salon in a major city, you may qualify for Gloss’s free TVs and programming. For more information, go to or e-mail
