Take a tip from…NSI’s Risé Carter

by Staff Writer | March 1, 2008

NSI’s national director of sales and education Risé Carter offers some tips on saving money in the salon:

> Buy larger sizes to lower the cost per service and increase the profit margin. High-quality nail products, such as NSI’s, offer an extended shelf-life of up to a year, so there shouldn’t be a fear of product waste.

> Store all products as if they were fine wine — in a cool, dark place — to maximize shelf-life.

> Do the math and calculate what each service on your salon menu will cost the salon. By knowing this, you can accurately and profitably price your services.

> A salon should always take advantage of manufacturers’ and suppliers’ deals in order to stock up on products when they are least expensive
