How to Start a Gel Nail Business after Qualifying

Start your own Gel Nail Business at home, salon or studio today

An easy cost effective business that can be done anywhere
Gel Nails in the UK has become a very popular seevice over the least few years and with a few tips and ideas you could benefit from starting your very own Gel Nails business.

There is a huge potential for earning good money as a self employed beauty therapist offering professional Gel Nails as an additional service.

Look at most nail bars and even shopping Malls these days and they have signs for Gel Nails in their windows. Look inside a salon and you will nearly always see them busy.

Customers don’t usually need to make an appointment, they just walk in and wait or get it done after they have had there other beauty treatments.

There has never been a better time to Start your own Gel Nails business from home. Working on your own gives you the opportunity to work your own hours with much more flexibility and freedom then being tied down in a salon.

1. You can offer very flexible hours.
Working on your own you can offer services at unsociable hours such as evenings or weekends. Just think how limited salon opening times are…

2. You can offer discounted rates.
A salon has huge overheads – staff, rent, heating etc, you can operate at very little cost and undercut salon prices hence making your Gel Nails prices very attractive.
Professional Gel Nails is even better than ordinary manicures and pedicures with modest earning potential because the Gel both strengthens and last longer than nail polish.

3. You can offer a mobile service.
Clients love it when you can offer your Gel Nails services in their own home. Just think of the business mobile hairdressers get. Many people don’t want to visit a salon – they may have work commitments, young children, don’t drive or are pensioners. There are many reasons why people can’t get to a salon and offering a mobile Gel Nails service is a superb way to make good money.

Setting up a Gel Nails business is not expensive. Although you should always buy the very best equipment, Gel Nails kits, tools are quite cheap.

You will have very little over heads, think what would you use for a client? A little talk, some wipes and a few strokes of the Gel, very little power from the UV lamp. These products will hardly break the bank expenses so your profits margins are very high.

The best place to start is to get some Gel Nails training.

A decent accredited Gel Nails courses cost under £200 and can be be booked on this site with a credit card or even Paypal. The price to train is very little compared to other similar industries. A hairdressing course would cost you £1000’s.

You can learn professional Gel Nails in just one day with our One Day Professional Gel Nails Course Workshop. Combined with a practice and guidance, you ready to go… A Hairdresser trains for months if not years before they can offer their art for profit.

Once you’re trained getting business can be quite easy. Start of by printing or writing some adverts with your details and phone number. Stick these up in your local shops, post office or Supermarket. Chip shops surprisingly do well as people stand in the queue and read everything! Most places charge a just couple of pounds a week.

You local newspaper classified can be a good place to put a small add.

Currently some local paper charge £25 for 6 lines of text. You can also try your local supermarkets notice board, local salon, church, women’s group the list goes on.

Also place averts in online directories so people can find you when they search online. Gumtree and facebook market places are also good avenues.

The best way to advertise these days is to get a small website built. Most people search on the internet for what they need and a nicely designed webpage can be a great source of clients. Get in touch with us if you want a cheap website, we know a man who can! Google offers free websites.

Once you get a few clients, word of mouth is by far the best advert for your services and if you do a good job word gets round quickly and you’ll soon be booked up with peoples mums, sister, aunts, uncles?? calling you.

Take photos of your finished work and then promote on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest .

So, put in basic terms, Gel Nails training is fast and cheap, materials are cheap and you can start your business in a short space of time with very little outlay. Gel Nails is a perfect business model, so reserve your place today.

LEARN TO BE AGILE WHEN CHALLENGES, DIFFICULTIES AND FAILURES ARE ON YOUR STEPPING STONES TO SUCCESS BY DIANE SHAWE

Greatness is not achieved by never falling but by rising each time we fall. Confucius

Failure, or failing at something, is a natural part of life. People experience failure both in their personal and professional lives on a daily basis.

The great thing about failure is that it provides you with a another chance. You get the opportunity to pick yourself up once again, come back stronger and have another go!

You can and should learn from your mistakes and your shortcomings, and use them as stepping stones to achieve success and greatness, be it in your personal life or in your professional life!

In other words, failure is a great teacher. One of the best, in fact!

The fact is that everyone fails, or experiences failure in their life. Even wildly successful and famous people – people who have seemingly achieved just about everything in life – have experienced failure and the disappointment that comes with it many times in their life. How they chose to deal with their failures is what made them successful, and got them to where they are today.

Remember, consistency is the evidence of belief. Keep smiling at the person in the mirror.

Like success, failure is many things to many people. With positive mental attitude, failure is a learning experience, a rung on the ladder, and a plateau at which to get your thoughts in order to prepare to try again. ~ W. Clement Stone

You don’t need a reason or permission to be happy just a choice. Dont let your excuses or doubts be greater than your faith in success or your positive vision.

Everything we see around us was once a thought, a dream a vision until it was committed to action.

What could be the defining hairstyles in 2019? It’s not what you think..by Diane Shawe

This is a very big question. Just in the UK alone we see a diversity of hair trends across the various groups. However I have seen a surge in two areas regardless of the wearers hair type or length.

Article by Diane Shawe

Modern top-knots

Top-knots used to be the hairstyle of you did if you didn’t have time to do your hair or you was a granny. But then Chanel’s Fall 2018 ready-to-wear show happened.

The models appeared on the runway as if they had literally just thrown their hair up into the up-do and suddenly ‘undone’ hair was cool again.

For the first time in my life I actually wore a modern top bun and felt really chic.

The trick to the perfect ‘imperfectly perfect’ bun, is to tie your hair into a ponytail before twisting it into a bun, so that the ends remain loose and messy. Then, for added texture

Adult accessories

From the humble hair clip to more statement bows and ribbons, hair accessories have stolen the hair limelight in recent months. I predict a sophisticated version will only grow in popularity as women with limited time and wanting to make a statement reach for those clips, grips, bows, gems and pins.

“It really started over the summer months where the heat was extreme and so people were wearing their hair up and accessorising.

Although all of the accessories differ in shape and style, they all can be adapted to a multitude of looks which is why I think it will be key for 2019.” we are even seeing natural hair being accessorised by grown women.

Let’s hope we get another wrapping hot summer like 2918.

What are the main benefits of FUE over FUT Hair Transplant Procedures

ARTICLE BY DIANE SHAWE

Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) is a hair restoration technique, also known as the strip procedure, where a patient’s hair is transplanted in naturally occurring groups of 1 to 4 hairs, called follicular units. Follicular units also contain sebaceous (oil) glands, nerves, a small muscle, and occasional fine vellus hairs. In follicular unit transplantation, these small units allow the surgeon to safely transplant thousands of grafts in a single session, which maximizes the cosmetic impact of the procedure.

Additionally it is recorded that the risk of long term nerve damage, leading to chronic numbness and/or pain in the donor area can be a side effect of the FUT procedure.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is a great surgical option for patients who want to restore their hair with minimal discomfort and scarring. FUE is considered by many to be the most refined approach to hair transplantation.

However, with FUE, the follicles are harvested from a much greater area of the donor zone compared to FUT, estimated to be eight times greater than that of traditional strip excision so requires patients to have hairs trimmed in a much larger donor area

FUE provides an alternative to FUT when the scalp is too tight for a strip excision and enables a hair transplant surgeon to harvest finer hair from the nape of the neck to be used at the hairline or for eyebrows.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) generally has a quicker patient recovery time and significantly lower post-operative discomfort than follicular unit transplantation (FUT).

The verdict

The survival of follicular units upon extraction (FUE) from the scalp is one of the key variables of successful hair transplantation. If follicular units are transected in the extraction process, there is a greater likelihood that they will not survive the transplant, and the hair transplant will fail. While FUT procedures using strip-harvesting of follicular units typically guarantees a large number of non-transected follicular units. It really depends on the client and the overall visual outcome they want to achieve as to which technique they use and how deep their pockets are.

Alternatives

However there are some new non evasive hair enhancement toupee in the market place which provide instant gratification and is easy on the pocket.

Undercutting your Hair Extensions Competition


Extracted from Getting Started in the Hair Extension Business by Diane Shawe

If your hair extension studio is a real under-cutter, care will have to be taken to keep costs as low as realistic as possible.

Don’t be shy when it comes to taking money for your services. Charge for the value of the benefits that you offer.

You must put a value on your services; look at your type of clientele, hair extension location, experience of employees, your clients’ needs and, the prices of the competition.

Price is sometimes seen as a sign of quality and value. Price can attract like-minded customers. They think that because your prices are high, the technician in your hair extension studio must be good. If your prices are high, it is important to promote to the high paying customers, the value of your service.

There are a lot of competitors, so low prices alone, might not be enough to keep the low paying customers coming back. Clients who look for bargains are not only looking for low prices, but they want to get great results too.

You must determine how much value you can offer. To be of value to clients, you must know what the clients’ needs are. Understand what benefits they wish to receive, what pain they want to relieve.

Order you copy today from Amazon or Google Play

The benefits they want might be a quick service with no waiting, or it could be that they want an expert doing their hair. They might prefer certain products used on their hair, or to know that they can be squeezed in at short notice occasionally.

Their pain might be that they begrudge spending time on their hair, or that they loathe technicians who don’t listen to them. It might be that they just haven’t found the right retail products to use at home.

Profit margins will be low, so a lot of clients will have to go through the hair extension studio, just for you to be able to pay the overheads. It will most likely mean offering fewer services and probably, rushing clients through. Even the employees will have to be paid a low salary.

In some cases, this could mean that the employees are much less experienced than you may like. You really need to decide on what sort of employees you want in your hair extension studio. You will find that the best technicians won’t want to work in a cheap hair extensions studio. Not only would it hurt their reputations, but they wouldn’t work for a low salary.

Your clientele will most likely be bargain hunters who probably won’t spend on retail products either.

Charge by experience
If your employees have exceptional skills or experience, you can charge more. If you promote these benefits well, you’ll find that clients don’t mind paying extra. A lot of clients don’t mind paying for the name, or the prestige.

Some hair extension studios charge by the experience of the hair technician performing the service. As employees reach certain levels of experience, they charge more. This seems to work very well for them.
