I Need to Perfect My Liquid-and-Powder Skills in a Hurry

Have you ever covered for a colleague or coworker in the salon? How did you feel about it? Confident or nervous?

#BFFmel has to be out of the salon for a bit and I am stepping in to do a handful of her liquid-and-powder clients. I don’t think I’ve been this nervous about doing nails in years! My enhancement specialty is gel and hers is L&P, which means her clients are all wearing L&P. She has mad skills, is an amazing person, and has an established time and routine.

The first step was to warn her clients that I have a turtle as a logo for a reason. They will need to be prepared for a service that takes a little longer than what they are used to. The next step is to practice! Doing mix ratio beads and nail tips as if I were in school again to get into the groove.

It’s pretty nerve-wracking to step into someone’s shoes, knowing you are not a perfect clone, simply a useful substitute. Any advice for me!?

Show Clients Proof of Sanitation

by Holly Schippers

Hopefully one thing this pandemic will do for our industry is make clients more aware of the differences between salons, and a piece of paper that says we happen to be licensed will no longer be sufficient proof of equal or clean service. How about showing clients that you opted to take a class on sanitation and disinfection while you were closed?
