or a sector so focused on physical appearances, the UK salon industry’s dedication to charity, cruelty-free produce and sustainable business practice may come as a surprise to many. My inbox is always full of messages sharing various acts of goodwill. But over the past few weeks, I’ve been inundated with even more stories of benevolence than usual. From salon owners making a serious pledge to put environmental business practice at the top of their agendas to product houses promising to donate thousands of pounds’ worth of profits to help those in need, more and more hair and beauty companies are jumping on board to help make the world a better place to be. Take haircare brand Paul Mitchell, which not only continues with the same anti-animal testing pledge as it did when it launched 30 years ago but actively encourages others to do the same. Last month CEO and co-founder John Paul DeJoria flew into London to host a special press conference highlighting the brand’s work with Cruelty Free International. Following its decision to refuse to sell its products in China until the country’s mandatory animal testing policy is lifted, the globally successful brand is flying the flag for ethical practice over profits everywhere. Wella Professionals, meanwhile, is on a mission to help those around the world with limited prospects get off to a flying start. The company has activated its global partnership with Unicef in the UK and Ireland and is asking

salon professionals to get involved in its long-term programme to transform the lives of young people in emerging countries through hairdressing education and mentoring. Its main aim for this year is to help adolescents living in poverty in Brazil forge careers by offering them the possibility to train to become hairdressers. For each specially marked Wella product, the company will provide funding for one half-hour training session. Meanwhile, fundraising activity throughout a variety of salons is set to raise even more money for the world’s children. Last but by no means least, Aveda will host its annual Earth Month from April 1 to raise money for the Global Greengrants Fund. The brand has always put environmental ethics at the forefront of its philosophy. And to date, this particular scheme has netted over $26million for clean-water projects – giving hope to thousands of people without easy access to sanitary water around the world. And this isn’t to mention the thousands of other companies that put charity and the environment high on their agendas. So whether you partner with a brand with strong ethical policies or decide to set up your own campaign, it’s time to show clients that visiting the salon isn’t purely about decoration: it’s about caring for the world they live in too.

Nail Harmony’s UK team marks the company’s success with a celebratory party and prize draw

T

he directors of Nail Harmony UK hosted a celebratory party last month to thank their loyal staff and customers for a triumphant year of growth. Around 150 guests descended on the company’s hometown of Chigwell in Essex to attend the bash, which took place inside an imposing chandelier-lit ballroom at the area’s Prince Regent Hotel. Attendees – which included educators, sub-distributors, clients and trade journalists – arrived in their droves to toast Nail Harmony’s success. Guests walked down a celebrity-inspired red carpet before being offered a choice of champagne, cocktails and canapés by a troop of topless waiters.

After networking with their industry peers, the crowd was invited to take part in an “interactive brand quiz” and live car draw for a chance to win a series of Nail Harmony prizes. UK directors Georgie and Jason Smedley, who introduced Nail Harmony to British and Irish salons in 2010, took to the stage to speak of the company’s burgeoning success. Since launching in the Middle East in 2009 with its hero gel-polish line Gelish, Nail Harmony has become a prominent professional brand in a range of countries around the globe. Thanking its teams, customers and the press for their support, the husband and wife duo spoke of the brand’s journey from its original inception by founder Danny

Haile to its development into a leading nail market contender today. But the climax of the evening was the announcement of the winner of a live car draw, concluding a competition in Scratch magazine to win a fully customised Gelish-branded Citroen C1. The Smedleys presented the top prize to Natalie Blankley, owner of Luton’s Get Gellished, who was able to drive away with the perfect advert for her business. In addition, several runners up also received hampers filled with Gelish products. Following the proceedings, guests were entertained by a live DJ set and dancing before leaving with goodie bags filled with nail and beauty products from a clutch of professional brands.

INDUSTRY ISSUE

The perils of the consumer press While a glowing review in a glossy magazine can do wonders for business, incorrect facts can be detrimental to the entire industry. By Gemma Ward

P

eople who claim that there is no such thing as bad publicity clearly don’t work in the salon industry. Since becoming a trade journalist specialising in this domain, I’ve witnessed more industry run-ins with the consumer press than I care to remember. Sadly, badly researched or even scaremongering articles written about salon services are a regular occurrence. All it takes is for a newspaper or magazine reporter to get the wrong end of the stick and a publication can hit the newsstands containing incorrect information that’s detrimental to thousands of businesses. Last month was a case in point. In the Sunday Times’ Style Magazine, a journalist wrote a small review-style piece weighing up the differences between soak-off gel competitors CND Shellac and Nail Harmony Gelish. Her editorial was littered with errors on everything from how the products are applied and removed to their consistency and the number of colour options available. The piece sparked outrage from nail technicians and salon owners up and down the county. “This article is bad for business,” exclaimed one via a post on Facebook while another retorted, “I had to read it twice as I thought I was

18 | www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk

seeing things.” Sadly, this type of inaccuracy isn’t an isolated incident. And it’s unlikely that it’ll be the last time a journalist writes an article

that has a negative slant on a professional salon service. From keratin hair treatments to the fumes expelled during spray tanning, it’s important to be well versed on all the facts so you can offer clients unparalleled expert guidance. “As a

professional taking the decision to use a brand – no matter which you choose – you should be educated in how to use it,” says Samantha Sweet, communications director for Sweet Squared, which distributes CND in the UK. “When you are educated and armed with correct and factual knowledge you can very easily counteract incorrect information.” She adds: “Education gives you the confidence and know-how to refute an incorrect point or add to a correct one.” Of course the issue swings both ways so remember for every bit of bad press there’s hopefully another glowing review. Although it can be frustrating when journalists taint an article with incorrect information, a positive recommendation from a key beauty editor can be all a startup business needs to grow into a formidable and sought after brand. While the PR departments of product houses do all they can to stop publications printing incorrect information, remember that it’s far better to work with the press than against them. Sweet concludes: “Always try to see the positive side. If I had phoned the journalist in question and shouted at her for writing incorrect information she may never write about us again. However, if I thanked her and invited her to have a CND Shellac experience, guess who will be more informed for future editorials on our brand and guess who may just write about us again? I will leave you to guess which route I took.”

PRODUCTS & TREATMENTS

Super summer menus Help clients look their best on the beach with the latest in-salon body beautifying treatments

S

ome of the latest machines designed to shed body fat in the salon use technology based on cryotherapy, which involves reducing specific areas to subzero temperatures. Also used for medical purposes with science backed up by experts at Harvard University, the salon version destroys fat cells so clients can prepare their stomachs, arms or thighs in time for the bikini season. Among the machines available on the market include Lipoglaze by LoveLite Ice, which promises to destroy 26 per cent of fat in any specific area in one session. The company has also launched a mobile version of its device that has a smaller suction head for more localised treatments. The new machine also boasts a reduced price tag making the treatment accessible for smaller businessess (available

on lease from £500 per month; Tel: 0845 505 0805 Loveliteuk.co.uk). Perfect for clients with harder-to-reach fatty areas, the CoolSculpting machine is based on the same premise as Lipoglaze but comes with a CoolCurve+ suction head to help therapists contour smaller areas (Tel: 01293 312 070 Coolsculpting.com). But for clients looking for a complete body overhaul, multi-tasking machines that combine several technologies can be a lucrative investment for salon owners. One such machine is the all-in-one Venue Freeze system, which creates a synergy of magnetic pulses and radio frequency to deliver skin tightening, sculpting and inch-loss results. The device causes a thermal response in the client’s skin tissue, activating the body’s natural healing

process. This response causes new collagen, elastin fibres and fibroblasts to form making the skin appear firmer, smoother and more contoured (Tel: 0208 741 1111 Venusconceptuk.co.uk). Likewise, the MedContour machine enlists the use of heat – delivered to the fatty tissue via ultrasound waves – to encourage the body to metabolise. Therapists use a conciave hand-piece and follow the contour of the client’s body targeting fat cells at a specific depth under the skin. The heat creates a micromassage effect, redistributing the fat and encouraging blood circulation. This works to reduce the appearance of cellulite and smooth the body shape. Zonal massage then stimulates the lymphatic system to drain away toxins and pockets of unwanted fat (Tel: 0800 978 8047 Med-contour.co.uk).

PRODUCTS & TREATMENTS THE NATURAL TOUCH The latest traditional methods of shaping the body and smoothing the skin in the salon offer clients pampering benefits and results combined. British brand Spa Find offers a range of products that combine key actives such as Dead Sea salts, coconut oil, vitamin E, harmonised water and a powerful complex blend to help remedy cellulite and sculpt the body’s contours with additional detoxifying results. The specialist brand offers a range of professional treatments including the Marine Miracle Firming Wrap and Sculptured Silhouette Inchwrap Treatment that promise to relax the client while toning and reducing fluid retention as well as treating dimpled skin and stretch marks. Meanwhile, its retail line offers salons additional revenue potential (Tel: 01580 211 055 Spafindskincare.com). Similarly, French skincare house Yon-Ka’s body treatments are both indulgent and results-focused. Its Soin Detox service is an invigorating, detoxifying and relaxing 75-minute treatment combining massage, hot and cold herbal wraps and nourishing products and is ideal for clients that want to look their best before a holiday (Tel: 0207 518 8370 Yonka.com). For clients looking for measurable results, the Universal Contour Wrap system comes with an inch-loss guarantee that can be optimised to help encourage bookings. Its recently launched Classic Elite treatment is an improvement on its original service and combines electrical muscle stimulation and thermal heat to deliver toning and shaping results. Thanks to new technology, the treatment time has been almost halved compared to the brand’s traditional service – providing greater comfort for the client. After an initial consultation, straps are placed around the client’s waist, stomach and thighs before they are placed into a Chrysalis thermal blanket for 35 minutes. The heat opens the pores and increases the action of the clay solution to draw out toxins and boost blood flow, oxygenation and lymphatic exchange. All clients lose a minimum of six inches guaranteed and keep it off for at least 30 days (Tel: 0845 094 9460 Universalcontourwrap. com).

FAKING IT

Sunless tanning is one of the most popular beauty services available to clients wanting to prepare for their summer holidays. With today’s focus on sun safety, increasing numbers of clients are looking to fake their way to a bronzed body and are turning to salons for professional results.

As offered by selected Saks Hair and Beauty salons, Xen-Tan’s Luxurious Tanning Treatment delivers a longwearing, natural olive glow that clients can wear straight after application. The therapist envelops the client’s body with sweetly scented lotion that glides onto the skin to leave it feeling nourished and smooth. They can opt for

a choice of products from the brand’s range including its new quick-drying gel formulas Moroccan Tan and Luminous Gold Gel – working the it into the skin with a mitt on each hand (salon cost from £1.96 per treatment/ RRP £40; Tel: 0844 800 7661). Alternatively, spray tans are an even quicker way to deliver flawless results and can prove to be a lucrative option for salon owners. British brand Sunjunkie offers a plethora of sunless tanning solutions to suit each client’s needs from options containing high concentrations of DHA to luxurious versions with additional skin-nourishing ingredients. According to the company, one bottle of solution costing £44.99 should generate a profit of around £330 (Tel: 0161 491 4499 Sunjunkie.com).

BRAND PROFILE

Total beauty Offering a comprehensive route to healthy skin, the International Institute for Anti-Ageing is the perfect partner for salons that want to offer real results

T

he International Institute for Anti-Ageing (iiaa) is much more than a product house. Offering a scientific approach to healthy skin, it is a leading provider of education, services and a broad spectrum of healthenhancing cosmetics. Most famous for distributing South African advanced skincare brand Environ, it also supplies British and Irish salons with Jane Iredale mineral cosmetics from the US as well as own-brand nutraceutical range the Advanced Nutrition Programme. The iiaa was established in 2004 but its history spans back the early ‘90s when training director Tracy Tamaris first introduced Environ to the UK market. Following huge demand, David Alpert joined as managing director in 1999 before introducing Jane Iredale some three years later. With two major brands in place, the iiaa was born. “In an industry that’s often based on hype and no substance, I wanted to create a vehicle therapists could come to trust using an evidencebased scientific approach to healthy skin,” says Alpert. “Everything the iiaa does is steeped in that philosophy and based on two things: results and integrity.” By March 2006, the company had developed its own range of nutraceutical supplements. The move enabled salons to offer their clients “a three-pronged approach to skin care” meaning they could ‘feed’ the body using the Advanced Nutrition Programme, ‘fortify’ the skin with Environ products and ‘finish’ the process using Jane Iredale cosmetics.

50 | www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk

“So often people are looking for a quickfix,” says Alpert. “When it comes to skin care, I believe that isn’t the healthiest way. The iiaa subscribes to the slow skin movement, which is a healthy approach that delivers long-term results.” He adds: “We have a lot to say about anti-ageing. We look at the skin’s biomarkers that can be measured such as elasticity and thickness – our products can actively reduce the effect ageing has on these areas.” Its unique concept is also backed up by demonstrable results, allowing salon owners to build a lucrative enterprise with repeat business and loyal clients. It is the only company to send skin analysts into its partner salons to photograph clients’ skin using its Visia Complexion Analysis machine. The correct products are then prescribed and the company’s experts return at a later date to show clients the effects. “When people see the changes they become motivated to continue treatment and are adverts for the salon,” says Alpert. “When a salon signs up with us and embraces our concept and free services, they will most definitely see significant growth.” But the company isn’t just focused on product sales. Its main aim is to offer “invaluable services to help salons grow their businesses” and its comprehensive training programme and business support is among the best in the global industry. Its latest launch – Beautymatch – is a recruitment service that supplies salons with fully trained staff from senior managers and therapists to front-ofhouse personnel. Each person is vetted and offered comprehensive training to

ensure that they are among the best in the industry. So when it comes to results-driven skincare, support and guidance, the iiaa delivers the complete package. Tel: 0208 450 2020 iiaa.eu

THE IIAA’S BRANDS ENVIRON Environ is renowned worldwide for outstanding salon and homecare treatments with special expertise in advanced vitamin skincare. The products were developed by South African cosmetic surgeon Dr Des Fernandes using ingredients with scientifically proven effectiveness. Dr Fernandes pioneered the use of vitamin A and antioxidants to normalise and protect skin of every type and age, and is the original founder of skin needling.

THE ADVANCED NUTRITION PROGRAMME Salon exclusive research-backed supplement system the Advanced Nutrition Programme is a unique nutraceuticals range that supports topical skincare regimes providing a truly holistic approach to skincare. Its range of products provides optimal daily amounts of vitamins, minerals and other vital elements to support a healthy lifestyle and maintain a glowing complexion.

JANE IREDALE Free from the top three sensitizers – synthetic dyes, fragrance and chemical preservatives – and ideal for even the most problematic or sensitive skin, Jane Iredale cosmetics give flawless, long-lasting coverage with minimal product application, ensuring the brand’s place in the kits of make-up artists, skin specialists and celebrities alike.

BUSINESS TIPS

Glowing reviews Monitor what your clients are saying about you online and reap the rewards, says Shortcuts’ Tom Bentley-Taylor

“I

t is easier than ever before for existing clients to post a salon review online. Equipped with smart phones, many can do it before they’ve even left your premises. “It’s also easy for potential clients to find reviews when they want to read about what other people have experienced. Today there are a lot of websites and social media channels for people to post comments. And Google now picks up a lot of these reviews, both the positive and negative, and highlights them on its results page. They appear near to the top of the results – so often the user sees them before anything else. So as a business owner, how are you keeping track? “In today’s digital world it isn’t enough to just instigate a pen and paper survey every now and again. Clients want to share their experiences straightaway. But by effectively managing the feedback you receive online, it’s easier to see which aspects of your business are working and any areas you can improve on. If there is something a client feels isn’t perfect you should be able to act on it swiftly to turn that client’s opinion around. That person is then highly likely to share their good experience. “Keep in mind that an unhappy client will tell eight to 16 people on average while 20 per cent will tell 20 people or more. Getting negative reviews isn’t always a cause for panic though: if the complaint is dealt with quickly and satisfactorily it can work well for your business. A whopping 95 per cent of clients with a complaint will do business with you again if you resolve

their problem straightaway. And this helps give your business integrity and make clients feel valued. “The software provided by Shortcuts allows salon owners to manage their online reputation via a SMART System. This new function enables the user to compare their business against various industry benchmarks, monitor online bookings and automated marketing campaigns (via email, paper and SMS with proven results), manage their Mylocalsalon.co.uk booking directory listing and remotely log in to get an

appointment book overview. And this is all from one online console, which is accessible anywhere. “Our approach to salon and spa software has always been different; we’re constantly looking at the new challenges facing our clients and the industry as technologies change and then working out how we can help solve them. Technology is moving so quickly that it’s difficult for some to keep up. How to effectively manage online reviews and claim a positive online reputation is a case in point. But our new SMART system provides a

whole suite of services that can automate many elements for the business owner without the additional costs of an outside agency. “Salon and spa businesses are already seeing huge benefits from using the SMART System. Gill Ferguson from Macadamia Hair Spa in Cheshire started using the Shortcuts online reputation manager tool soon after she opened her business. She says: ‘It means I can keep my finger on the pulse. The online reputation manager sends emails telling me I have reviews waiting for me to approve. As soon as I get those emails I log in to check and approve those reviews, then I make sure I post them to our Facebook business page.’ “She adds: ‘All the reviews have been positive so far and I use a selection of these in my weekly team meetings to share with the team and celebrate their success. I have a plan in place in case there are any negative reviews that come through: I would contact the client through the online reputation manager to see if I could remedy the situation and then I would make sure that relevant extra staff training was carried out. I would also use the experience to improve our service.’ “So don’t be scared to embrace the concept of online reviews. It’s a growing phenomenon and with the right management, it can be a positive addition to your business.” Tom Bentley-Taylor is the CEO of Shortcuts software and has multiple years’ experience in salon marketing and digital development.

INTERVIEW

Picture perfect Why Justine Collins is the make-up artist every top hairdresser should have on speed dial

J

ustine Collins is surely the hardest working make-up artist in the industry. When she’s not travelling around the globe working on shoots, meeting clients and hunting out future trends, she’s busy running her beauty boutique, sourcing models for her agency, making brides look beautiful for their big day or designing oneoff pieces for her bespoke fashion line. Now living in the picturesque Cotswolds, the 37-year-old began her diverse career in the capital. There she studied fashion design and pattern cutting while spending her weekends working as a consultant on a make-up counter. After graduating, she took a full-time position at Estée Lauder’s Birmingham flagship – cementing her future in cosmetics. “That was the moment I fell in love with makeup,” she says. “Giving someone help applying the right products in the correct way can change somebody – it gives them confidence and a new radiance.” Collins went onto work for the likes of Yves Saint Laurent and Sophora, climbing her way up from make-up artist to in-store trainer. And it was this transition into trend-led brands that re-ignited her love of fashion – leading her down the session road. “After this experience I knew I wanted to get into the trend side of the industry,” she says. “I’ve always been an avid reader of all the glossies, and I knew that I could do make-up on a freelance basis if I was able to make the right contacts.” Aged 24, Collins began contacting local photographers offering her services for test shoots. Working with hair, beauty and fashion specialists, she soon picked up a bulging list of contacts and regular paid work came rolling in. But while many make-up artists go down the fashion or music route, Collins began working with high profile hairdressers and large hair and

54 | www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk

beauty product houses enabling her to enter salon industry circles. “There were some people that gave me my big break and I’ll always be grateful to them,” she says. “One was Brenda O Sullivan who was creative director for Regis International at the time, and the others were Royston Blythe and Nick Malenko. We worked together for about eight years on amazing awardwinning imagery and thanks to them my work always got into the British Hairdressing Awards finals and on high profile magazine covers.” But as the corporate work came flooding in, Collins was also introduced to the celebrity world by fellow make-up artist Gary Cockerill. The union led her to work on Katie Price’s first wedding and a range of other television jobs with the likes of Kate Garraway and Rachel Hunter. Meanwhile, she continued building a weekend wedding business, helping brides look their best for their big day. Despite all of this, the make-up artist never slowed down or stopped striving to better her craft. And after spending so many years working with premium brands and recommending the best products to

clients, she wanted to go back to her retail roots and open her own beauty boutique. So in 2010, armed with an extensive knowledge of the industry, Pink Gloss opened its doors in Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, offering a range of professional salon treatments alongside a treasure trove of top brands. “It’s a beautiful shop in the Cotswolds that’s just a lovely, friendly place to be,” she says. “It retails skincare, make-up and fragrance for both men and women while also offering bridal hair and make-up, facials, body treatments and manicures. We don’t give customers the hard sell, but offer friendly advice instead. We have lots of regular customers and a growing number of male fans too.”


INTERVIEW

With so many years’ experience working across a broad spectrum of areas, Collins’ work with hairdressers has also expanded. Today her input doesn’t just end with make-up: as a trained fashion designer who creates special one-off pieces, she also styles shoots with bespoke garments to help clients achieve their vision. In addition, she also helps clients find the ideal models through her bespoke agency created especially for those that find it difficult to cast the right girls. “Clients come to me and need models with a certain hair length or colour but want the versatility to be able to cut and colour,” she says. “This can often be a tricky area as a lot of models don’t want to change their look and this means that hairdressers often have to work with the girl’s hair as it is. I match models to clients so they can produce their vision; this is vital so they can achieve a collection that they’re proud of.” Since launching the agency as a sideline around six years ago, Collins has helped the likes of Abacus in Bewdley win the L’Oreal Colour Trophy. As well as taking charge of the make-up for their winning entry in 2010, she also sourced the model and made a bespoke dress to tie in with the complete look. “The model was amazing and I knew she had the potential to win,” she says. “I convinced her to let the team cut her long blonde hair into a dark purdy style. She looked incredible.” Over her career Collins has worked with “around 100” big hair industry names including Marcello Moccia at Room 97, Stuart Holmes and Anthony John Salons. Here she has found a niche to help stylists achieve superior collections – aiding them

with everything from casting the best models to offering the clothes, makeup and nails as well as finding the best photographers and re-touchers. “Some hairdressers find it a headache to source all the things they need so I can do it all for them as a nice little package,” she says. “If you can get the right team together and everyone is comfortable then you’re one set ahead of everyone else to creating a winning collection.” But her career doesn’t stop here either. Ever ambitious, Collins is currently in the process of designing her own trend-led cosmetics range based on an idea that’s been in the pipeline for several years. “I’m hoping I can roll it out nationwide to other salons as well as selling it in the Pink Gloss boutique,” she says. “It will be a premiumstyle line targeted at consumers that will offer a range of trend-led colours each season.” Meanwhile, the make-up artist also plans to hone in on her fashion design skills over the next year to launch her own clothing line. “I’d love to work on that side of things again and develop a collection that will be sold online and through independent boutiques,” she says. “I’ve always loved fashion so this would be a dream come true.” But for now, Collins plans to focus on building her model agency to offer hairdressers a full package of contacts to help them produce award-winning shoots. “The best bit about what I do is the fact that you can have an initial meeting and end up producing an amazing image that will always be there,” she concludes. “Seeing an image you’ve worked on win an award is the best feeling in the world.”

EDUCATION

Easy to manage Sak Educations’ Tina Rook reveals how the company can help turn your business dreams into a reality

“H

airdressing is a vibrant and exciting career but not all stylists have the natural business nous to run their own salon. However, going it alone is a natural progression for some hairdressers who can be creative by nature but lacking in managerial skills. That’s why Saks Education has created a range of NVQs to help stylists become bona fide leaders in business. “Twenty-four-year-old Chelsea Lee is currently a hairdresser working in a large Lincoln–based hair and beauty salon. After recently taking on a new management role, she lacked confidence when communicating with other salon managers. And this confidence barrier

56 | www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk

was impacting on her interaction and the professionalism of her entire management position. “After completing initial assessments screening Lee’s preferred learning styles alongside lengthy discussions with a Saks Educator, an NVQ was tailored specifically to develop her own areas of weakness. The hairdresser then started a NVQ/BTEC Level Three in Management to develop the communication skills she lacked and to re-affirm and adapt her skills for management. “With ongoing support from the Saks Educator, Lee demonstrated improved communication skills and found that she was blooming with confidence after a matter of weeks. The hairdresser has

gone from strength to strength and is now halfway through completing her qualification. Having already passed two of her BTEC exams with flying colours, she’s leading team meetings and using new skills to aid her working life. Lee is also much more confident and now has a fantastic approach to dealing with her role and all that it brings. Morever, she is able to communicate with the management team effectively, which has had an impressive impact on the salon team. “So whether you dream of becoming a super stylist or have business ambitions to make the big time, Saks Education can help you reach your goal.” Tel: 01325 341 629 E: education@saks.co.uk Saks.co.uk

Travelling companion The new Oxyjet travel set enables clients to revitalise tired and ageing complexions with the use of oxygen therapy on the go

B

ased on the same principles as its in-salon oxygen therapy treatment, Oxyjet’s new travel set allows clients to give their skin an instant boost on the go. Oxyjet’s results-driven salon treatments use pulsed oxygen pressure to shoot pure oxygen and special cosmetic formulations into the skin. The active ingredients in the products then penetrate into the deep layers of the skin – offering effective antiageing results and a youthful, glowing complexion. Using the same technology but modified for use at home or on the move, the new EVO 2 set supplies the skin with concentrated active ingredients to smooth

out fine lines and refresh the surface texture. Treating problem areas systematically, the user applies Beauty Tox products included in the set onto the skin and then pushes them using oxygen pressure gently into the deep layers of the epidermis with the Oxyjet Applicator. Used to treat the entire face including the mouth, lip and eye area, the wonder treatment instantly creates volume, moisturises, smoothes and revitalises the skin for a highly effective salon-inspired result.

The EVO 2 contains 10 separate components including enough oxygen for five or six treatments as well as £200 worth of homecare. £295 + VAT/ RRP £495; Tel: 01775 722 243 E: enquiries@ oxyjetuk.co.uk

up range from Australia while Novita specialises in advanced beauty machines such as microdermabrasion. Lastly, the company is also distributing eyeSlices, which specialises in innovative, fresh and therapeutic eye treatment pads that can be used in both in the salon and at home. Alongside this unique product offer, Kay and Baker are also equipped with a wealth of experience to help salon owners grow their businesses. Baker is a registered general nurse and an experienced beauty therapist with her own award-winning salon in Hampshire. Kay’s career, meanwhile, was in engineering consultancy before he joined the company last summer. Today he oversees its dayto-day operations focussing on excellent customer service and efficient order processing. “It’s vitally important to small businesses that they can rely on their suppliers to have ample stock and to not discriminate against them with punitive start-up costs and minimum order values,” he says. “We actively encourage micro businesses to come to us; we will help them in every way we can on an on-going basis.” This year is set to be a particularly momentous time for the company after it made its show debut at Professional Beauty London last month. Furthermore, it will also exhibit at the show’s sister event in Manchester this October. Additionally, Kay and Baker have also launched a

new website offering customers an online ordering service and salon finder facility alongside an entire library of training documents, product brochures and marketing material. “We signed up for the Professional Beauty shows to demonstrate our commitment to these amazing brands and to raise their profile,” says Baker. “They deserve to be so much more than just the beauty industry’s best kept secrets and our customers deserve to see that we mean business.” And their strategy is crystal clear: with a solid marketing campaign and business plan in place, the company is well on its way to seeing its international ranges stand out against some of the UK’s more established brands.
