hether your salon specialises in hair, beauty or both, October is the best time of year to get inspired for the season ahead. With the impending threeday Salon International set to kick off in London this month alongside Manchester’s hotly anticipated Professional Beauty North, there will be more brands than ever launching new products, techniques and business ideas to help propel your salon forward. Moreover, with a schedule of seminars and demonstrations taking place across various live stages, organisers of both events are promising invaluable advice to help salon owners gear up for their most successful six months yet. Find out why you should attend, starting from page 56. Speaking of planning ahead, we’ve already started thinking about Christmas this month to help you organise the next three months. Gift ideas and festive home care products are a must-have for every salon’s retail division from this month onwards. For many clients, it’s never too early to start considering their options while some need a reminder that they need to book in for December services as soon as possible. And some of our favourite hair and beauty brands have already unveiled some of the best gift sets we’ve seen in years. Turn to our special guide, starting on page 42, to discover our top picks for party season. Likewise, we’ve also been thinking about Christmas visual merchandising this issue to help salons maximise their retail division’s potential. Because even if you’re stocking

the best gift ideas in town, they won’t sell if your clients don’t know about them. So from eye-catching window displays to festive decorations to inspire sales, we have it covered starting on page 49. But if you still deem October a little too early to get into the Christmas spirit, we also have a range of other AW12 ideas to help get your menu ready for the change in weather. Following on from our winter skincare guide last month, we’ve uncovered seven of the best professional hair treatments that can be added onto a usual cut or colour service to combat the adverse affects of the cold. We know that flitting between low outdoor temperatures to buildings with the central heating cranked up high can play havoc on the condition of even the most groomed client’s hair. But with a little help from an in-salon moisturising masque or leave-in treatment, these effects can be drastically reduced. And what’s more, advising clients to invest in such services can dramatically increase your takings to boot. Turn to page 32 to discover some of the best options available on today’s market. Here’s to an inspiration-filled October! GEMMA WARD, EDITOR

INDUSTRY UPDATE Wahl UK celebrates 25year anniversary

Salon furniture brand Welonda re-launches in UK German salon furniture supplier Welonda has re-launched globally after being bought out by Dutch company Keila. The 60-year-old brand is now being distributed in the UK and Ireland by Salonitems – a company founded in 2010 by former Welonda MD Gary Justice – after collapsing in 2010 under parent company Procter and Gamble. The new partnership puts Salonitems and Welonda in a position to offer an independent range of services complimented by the brand’s longstanding heritage to UK salon owners. Dedicated to manufacturing with precision, the company’s continued focus is to create on-trend, high quality, timeless furniture that is built to stand the test of time. “We will combine our experience and knowledge to continue to offer a strong proposition for salon owners,” says Justice. “A salon interior is a direct reflection of its standards. Current is great but for how long? Timeless is a reassuring quality.” For more information visit Salonitems.co.uk.

GLOWING REVIEWS LUNCHTIME LIPO

One of the hottest inch-loss crazes to sweep the US has begun making waves on London’s celebrity circuit. Serial party girl and ex-WAG Lizzie Cundy has been raving to the consumer press about non-invasive fat busting treatment Lipoglaze, which uses Cryotherapy to freeze fat cells. Suitable for areas such as the arms, legs and thighs, the 42-year-old used the pain-free service to iron out her stomach. “I go to the gym regularly and I’m very careful about my diet, but we all need a little help with getting rid of those stubborn areas,” she says. “That’s why I turned to Lipoglaze. Afterwards I felt confident to pose naked for a magazine without any airbrushing.” The revolutionary non-surgical service kills of fat cells in one 50-minute session and is currently being touted as the next big thing in advanced beauty services for salons around the country.

CELEBRITY MOLE

Peter Andre visited the Fake Bake Hair and Beauty Boutique in Manchester’s Selfridges last month for a quick checkup in support of the sunless tanning brand’s Save Your Skin campaign. A great supporter of the Scottish company’s efforts to education young people on the potential dangers of overexposure to UV rays, the reality star met manager Kevin O’Neill for the procedure before posing for press shots. He said: “Having your moles checked isn’t glamorous but it’s so important – it is quick and painless and can really save lives.” Have you styled a star recently? E: gemmaw@cimltd.co.uk

BRAND PROFILE

The hair industrial revolution Promising to offer the most advanced formaldehydefree formulation on the market, British brand Keratin Revolution is set for global domination

B

ack in 2009, the keratin treatments sector of the hair industry was on the cusp of facing a backlash. Clients had initially been drawn to the promise of long-lasting frizz-free locks and many were prepared to invest hundreds of pounds and multiple hours in the salon chair for such results. That was until reports began surfacing about the safety of the treatment’s key ingredient: formaldehyde. During that period, industry entrepreneurs Ben Collins and Martin Gallagher began a quest to create a product that mirrored the results these formulations offered but crucially without any of the undesirable chemicals. “We had been on a trip to the US and had noticed the growing demand for keratin treatments,” says Collins. “However, after some research, it became clear that they contained potentially harmful ingredients; we decided that if we wanted to enter the market it would have to be with a formulation that didn’t pose any potential health threats to hairdressers or consumers.” With this in mind, the duo invested

capital into researching and developing a new generation keratin treatment. And in 2010, months after they first began testing, Keratin Revolution was born. “Our USP was clear,” says Collins. “We were the first brand to launch a keratin treatment that was 100 per cent free of formaldehyde, aldehydes or ureas.” New for this year the company launched its Ultra Smooth System, which it says is the “most advanced formaldehyde-free formula on the market”. Moreover, its easy-touse process is straightforward for stylists to master while the system offers salon owners the potential to make high profits. Its benefits have seen it grow from an initial start-up brand to a key industry player with partnerships with key distribution companies and international partners in 10 countries worldwide. As well as offering its hero professional in-salon treatment, the brand also supplies salons with retail products so they can increase revenue while clients can care for their hair at home. One of its best sellers

is the Infused Deep Conditioning Masque, which is a restructuring treatment for all hair types and uses thermo reactive ingredients such as hydrolysed keratin and jojoba oil to nourish and restore the hair. Keratin Revolution offers salons a starter package for £99, which includes enough formula for around five clients. “If you charge the recommended £120 – £150 per treatment, you can see how this is a revenue-rich service,” says Collins. Moreover, as it is a straightforward service for stylists to master, minimal training is needed while the brand supplies a comprehensive brochure detailing the process step-by-step. While it is still a relatively new brand on the market, Collins has big ambitions for its future: “It’s a personal mission of mine to put Keratin Revolution on the world map when it comes to highly recognisable hair care brands.” To achieve this, the company plans to increase its share of the UK market by continuing to build our network of salon stockists while investing in consumertargeted PR. “We will also continue to invest significantly into research and development,” Collins concludes. “We already have a number of new products in the pipeline and as a business we will continue to be at the forefront of innovation within the sector.” Salon International Stand H105.

ADVERTORIAL

Shiny ‘appy people Create your own salon app in minutes with gappt’s brand new online software that makes the process quick and easy for business owners

A

UK technology firm has launched a new online service that enables salon owners to build their own branded app in

minutes. The new app software has been unveiled by gappt, a London-based technology company, whose software gives the hair and beauty industry a new way to communicate with customers while potentially increasing profits. Its innovative product allows salons to boost their revenue by highlighting real-time gaps in their appointment books, promote special offers and collate customer feedback alongside a host of other features. The new technology means salon owners can build their own app online at gappt.com even if they aren’t technically minded. Lorraine Henry, spokesperson for gappt, says: “We always felt there was a gap in the UK’s hair and beauty market for a multi-purpose app and this was confirmed after some extensive market research with salons up and down the country. “We found that businesses, such as hair salons for example, will more often than not use traditional methods to market their services or to communicate with their customers. But it was also clear they were crying out for something that was technology-led, cost effective, didn’t require specialist knowledge and above all else, a tool which adds value to their business.” According to Henry, this is exactly where gappt technology comes in. She continues: “Our online wizard helps build and deliver a branded app in minutes and is something radically different for the industry. First and foremost salons can highlight real-time gaps in their appointment books to customers on the move or in the office,

30 | www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk

but this is just the start. “The app really comes into its own when in only one click, salon owners or managers can highlight special offers or discounts directly to the smartphones, tablets or PCs of their customers. It also has the ability to accept bookings, allow customers to leave feedback or even to request a call back from their salon.” Henry says that gappt has consciously built a professional after-sales service and admin suite to support new and existing customers. She also says that the company’s pricing plan has been designed to cater for all budgets. “We’re using a subscription model and we’re offering our most basic package for under £26 per month – a small investment for a potentially big return,” she adds. “So aside from speed of the technology and features the app gives, we hope this flexibility and affordability will encourage health and beauty salons to take a serious look at what we’re offering.” She concludes: “We want to destroy

the myth that self-branded apps are only for big blue-chip companies. Our technology is all about enabling large or small businesses to showcase themselves and their services, increase revenue and ultimately show their customers how they are embracing technology by making their services simpler.” Visit gappt.com or email info@gappt. com for more information.

WIN! YOUR OWN SALON APP To celebrate the launch of its new software, gappt is offering 50 The Salon Magazine readers a free 30-day trial of running their own business app. To be in with a chance, email your full name, company name and telephone number to E: Jenny@cimltd.co.uk before 25 October 2012. But be quick as the first entrants will receive the offer.

THE TREATMENT: The hair is washed with Brazilian Blowout’s specially formulated Professional Shampoo before it is covered in its Professional Smoothing treatment from root to tip and then blow-dried straight. The stylist then divides the hair into sections and uses a flat iron to straighten each piece. Once complete, the hair is rinsed, towel-dried and then treated with the Brazilian Blowout Masque for one minute before being rinsed again. To finish, the stylist applies Smoothing Serum to seal the cuticle followed by blowdrying the hair one final time and styling as required.

THE CLOUD

ADVANTAGE: MINDBODY Appointment Booker App

Benefits of the Cloud

Offer online appointment booking through your Facebook page via MINDBODY’s Appointment Booker app. Clients’ realtime bookings are instantly integrated with your MINDBODY schedule.

By Tevya Finger, Oribe

MINDBODY’s use of the cloud to house their salon management software is the most compelling reason why you should use them. In the cloud, the need to back up your data manually goes away. The need for full-time IT staffers goes away. The need to format software in your salon and pay for outside consultants goes away. MINDBODY All of this can be done SOFTWARE IS remotely by MINDBODY, LEAGUES ABOVE and you never even know it’s going on. THE REST. Because the software is web-based and accessible online, it’s both Mac and PC compatible. Plus, you can share your client data and run reports across multiple locations at no extra charge. With MINDBODY’s proven ability to remain up and running 99.9% of the time, worldwide, I believe MINDBODY is a no-brainer for your salon.

"MINDBODY software is easy to use and stress-free… It leads to less frustration and faster operations in the salon."

"MINDBODY keeps track of everything! It just works and I don't have to think any more about it."

Botanical White Teeth Whitening Are You Now Performing Illegal Teeth Whitening Treatments? In September 2011 the EU adopted a new amendment in the Cosmetic Regulations which outlaws non-dental professionals from performing any type of teeth whitening treatments on their clients, irrespective of the type of gel used. The UK has now implemented this amendment and the British Dental Association & the General Dental Council will be pushing Trading Standards to enforce this law and convict Salons and people offering teeth whitening as a service unless they are a fully qualified Dental Professional. There are a number of salons who thought they were within the law by using non-peroxide gels that are now facing prosecution and having a criminal record. Dentists are also now limited to what they can offer patients, as such their treatments are no longer as effective as they were but their prices still remain high. Botanical White has been created to help Salons and those offering teeth whitening as a service, keep this lucrative sales channel open. Specially formulated with ingredients that not only whiten but also strengthen your clients teeth. The kits are fully compliant with the new UK/EU legislation and as they are a retail kit that your client takes home there is zero risk of prosecution to you. Don’t put your business at risk by ignoring this new legislation, retain this lucrative sales channel by stocking Botanical White and relax in the knowledge that you are keeping your clients happy whilst complying fully with the law.

BUSINESS Festive visual merchandising ideas, must-visit trade shows and building brand loyalty

Christmas cheer I

FIFTY PLUS

t might seem a little early to be thinking about Christmas. However, the nation’s best retailers have already begun getting their stores ready for the festive rush so isn’t time you started considering your options? With that in mind, this month we reveal some great visual merchandising ideas to help inspire the creation of your own winter wonderland…

www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk | 49


CHRISTMAS PREPARATIONS opportunities: helping clients look their best for the party season and aiding them in their quest to find the perfect presents. So if you want to make the most of the occasion, preparation is key. For some, starting the proceedings straight after Bonfire Night is too early. “We begin from the first day of December and the reason for this is to keep our decorations looking fresh and to avoid irritating out clients,” says Nick Bland, manager of Haringtons in Soho. However, for others, keeping up with retailers and introducing decorations at least six weeks before the big day is an essential part of a successful festive strategy. “We like to have everything ready in November so it prompts clients to book their appointments in plenty of time,” says Julia Gaudio at Elajé Hair and Beauty in Cambridge.

f you take your lead from the high street’s biggest retailers, it’s never too early to get customers into the Christmas spending spirit. From the beginning of next month, Britain’s most influential stores will break out the tinsel, turn up the festive tunes and generally use every Christmas hook they can think of to

Retailers use their windows to draw in customers, much like magazines use imagery and text on their front covers. Some of the major department stores dedicate an entire team and a full 12 months to getting their Christmas windows just right. So to keep up with competition on the high street, salons need to put aside time and budget to create a crowd-pleasing display. Working with product houses to achieve the right message is a move favoured by many of the industry’s biggest players. Steve Rowbottom, director for North England group Westrow, aligns his salons’ displays with a chosen manufacturer’s marketing campaign and creates bespoke windows with a co-ordinated colour scheme and artwork. “Last year we worked our window campaign in-line with the ghd Scarlet stylers, opting for a traditional red and silver colour scheme to complement ghd’s imagery,” he says. “Westrow’s window campaign artwork incorporated candy-floss hair imagery, which was created using hundreds of illustrated candy canes. This worked well with our ‘Love Your Hair’ slogan and went down a storm with clients, as it was fun and festive.” This year the team has opted for a frosted window design featuring circular non-frosted portholes that will allow clients and passers by to see visuals set behind. This will be again aligned with its chosen manufacturer’s 2012 campaign. Rowbottom adds: “Our aim is to entice

and delight our clients into the salon. Windows should be fresh and offer an insight into your brand – after all it’s the window into your hairdressing world so it needs to speak volumes about the products and services you offer inside.” For inspiration, many salon owners look to major Central London retailers. “Regent Street is always the most inspiring place to be and is packed with memorable windows,” says Gaudio. “We generally look at the big stores like Selfridges while M&S and Next are also very inspiring.” Bland adds: “We love to take our inspiration from the big iconic London stores such as Harvey Nichols and Liberty. We like to give people looking into Haringtons’ window display a similar feeling but on a smaller scale.” And he isn’t the only salon owner with a grand vision. Robert Masciave of Metropolis Hairdressing in Kingston aims to come up with an extra special window every December to reflect the magical time of year. “We’ve had so many fantastic displays in the past but there are a few that really stand out,” he says. “We created a window display that looked like the inside of a sparkling champagne drink with bubbles drawing the clients in. I’ve also created a hair chandelier inspired by one of my collections, which seemed to make an impact. But one of my favourites has to be the enchanted winter tree we created, which looked as though it was growing inside of the salon and windows. It looked like a fine art installation leaving

52 | www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk

every visitor fascinated and inspired.”

Baby it’s cold outside But for those salons that can’t install a momentous window display, decorating the salon inside can have a worthwhile affect on getting clients into the festive mood. Ishoka Hairdressing and Beauty in Aberdeen works its Georgian townhouse setting to its full advantage by enlisting the skills of a design company. “Because we’re in a townhouse we don’t have any street appeal apart from the building itself so we dress the interior instead,” says managing partner Malcolm MacNeil. “We have a florist who creates amazing displays each week using seasonal produce and at Christmas we have a company that comes in and dresses the entire salon.” Last year the team created a nostalgic display decorating the salon’s fireplace with colourful presents and a life size model of Father Christmas. “The building lends itself to being decorated,” says MacNeil. “We have a marble fireplace in the reception area, which is furnished with sofas and chairs – clients love to relax there and look at the decorations. One year we had handmade angels on invisible wire with glitter beads running down it – it looked beautiful and we received lots of great comments from clients.” If employing dedicated decorators is out of your budget (or you just want to get creative yourself) there are various retail suppliers selling festive finishing

products available for delivery now. Morplan, which offers a one-stop-shop for every visual merchandising display need, has just launched its Christmas brochure offering models of polar bears, penguins, snowmen, Santas and sleighs alongside conventional trees, lights, baubles and tinsel. It also offers a selection of Christmas packaging for those offering gift-wrap options. The company runs three stores in Bristol, Enfield and Glasgow as well as a telephone ordering service with free mainland UK delivery (Tel: 0800 451 122). Even if you’re unsure about a large festive display, carefully thought out retail units can still create the right ambience inside the salon. And working with

CHRISTMAS PREPARATIONS your key product suppliers is often the best way to make the most of visual merchandising opportunities as many have various options on offer. “We are very big on retailing anyway and stock a wide range of products,” agrees Gaudio. “So we’ll work alongside our suppliers to promote the packages they’ve launched for the year.” With many product houses unveiling special Christmas sets and limited edition products this month, making the most of them in displays is essential to maximise sales. “It’s important to have visual merchandising as people don’t automatically think of their salon as a place to buy Christmas gifts,” says Bland. “We want to show clients that we offer seasonal gifts that they might not realise we sell. If a client buys merchandise from the salon once, they may buy more in the future.” Masciave adds: “From a commercial point of view we need to make the most of the clients’ spending frame of mind, capitalising on the opportunity by drawing them in and staying ahead of our competitors.” At Ishoka last year clients were offered

PURLEES.COM

12 gift suggestions to tie in with a ‘12 days of Christmas’ theme. “It worked so well that might try something similar this year,” says MacNeil. But whatever you decide to do, ensure you communicate loudly. After all, finding the perfect gifts is often the most stressful part of the season, so many will be

thankful if they can pick up stocking fillers during their appointment. “Christmas is a huge retail opportunity so why not make the most of it,” MacNeil concludes. “Clients are in a spending mood and we can help to make their life easier with gift packs and gift vouchers all beautifully wrapped up.”

Holistic heaven Natural skincare brand Face The World is offering salons a real point of difference with its unique holistic therapies and results-driven retail line

S

ince launching last year, professional skincare brand Face the World has gone from strength to strength with its holistic facial that combines a pampering experience with tangible skincare results. Also offering a natural product retail range, the complete line was created in conjunction with beauty industry experts, a national panel of therapists and salon owners ensuring its efficiency as a highly effective professional brand. Adding to its patented choreographed facial, the company has recently launched a series of new services to be offered alongside the one-hour treatment so salon owners can offer clients better value and a more varied portfolio. The four 30-minute add-on treatments, which therapists can learn during a series of half-day training courses, include Thai foot massage, Indian head massage, a Tibetan hand ritual and an Eastern acu-pressure facial. “The majority of clients who enjoy prescriptive facial treatments will also be willing to try a holistic alternative – especially one that incorporates meridian points, global music, high quality natural product range and a choice of complementary mini treatment,” says founder Liz Badger. “Moreover, having a regularly updated portfolio of treatments that add interest and value to your core skills is a great way of not only keeping you up-to-date and showing your clients you take your training seriously, but attracts a broader client base while regulars will be tempted back more often.”

• Rosehip Oil – rich in omega three and six and the only naturally occurring vegetable oil that contains vitamin A, this is essential for aiding damage repair and supporting the skin’s lipid barrier. • Evening Primrose Oil – packed full of essential fatty acids and gamma linoleic acid this aids moisture barrier maintenance and soothes and protects the skin. • Wheatgerm Oil – contains high levels of anti-oxidants. • Wheat Seed Extract – fights free radicals and protects skin renewal. • FTW Ceramide Technology Blend (derived from wheat oil) – a non-greasy emollient that acts as a carrier for the main actives in this formulation while leaving skin feeling smooth and silky. • Vitamin A – visibly improves overall skin condition.

• Vitamin E – one of the most popular skin healers and renowned for its ability to protect skin from environmental damage. • Meadowfoam Oil –this unique ingredient from the pretty white flowers has a blend of fatty acids that promote superior skin conditioning. • Shea Butter – one of the best natural moisturising ingredients due to its unique fatty acid content. Face The World is celebrating the independent launch of its luxurious, overnight skin-booster serum by offering stockists a chance to try it for half the retail price.

These include a pre-16year-olds’ course for school pupils to introduce them to the world of hair and beauty alongside a post 16 diploma that helps gear students up for a role as a junior stylist. “All students get the opportunity to work in a purpose-built salon in The Maltings College, giving them a real taste of what it’s like to work in a salon environment. “However, Saks and The Maltings are also looking to link up with hair and

beauty businesses in the Halifax area for placements. This is an ideal opportunity for employers because if they take on a student who has taken part in this course, they’ll know that hair and beauty is their passion.” For more information contact Saks Education Tel: 01325 341 605 E: education@saks.co.uk Saks.co.uk

MANAGER PRO

Indulging your inner client Stuart Holmes reveals his secret to retaining loyal fans

“C

lient retention is an art form. But with an increasingly competitive salon market, strategies to target this have become ever more complex. When I first started out in the industry, a good cut and colour at a reasonable price used to pretty much guarantee clients coming back again and again. However, with savvy consumers and the growth of online marketing, clients these days are more tempted to shop around. “For that reason, it’s very important that you segment your audiences when devising your salon marketing strategy. You need to have a series of strategies that target new clients while systematically retaining existing ones. The bottom line is that you need to ensure your clients love you and are not swayed in any way to try a competitor. “We invest heavily in campaigns that encourage our clients to return again and again. Ensuring client retention is just as important a part of our marketing strategy as traditional advertising and PR. “You need to give your clients a reason to choose you over and above your competitors. You need to go that little bit further and do that little bit extra to keep them talking about you and to keep your brand at the forefront of their minds. “Loyalty programmes are a good way to inspire people to return. At The Stuart Holmes Hair and Beauty Spa, we recently launched Indulgence: a bespoke programme that has been designed especially for us to reward our clients for their custom. “The aim is to provide customers with

66 | www.thesalonmagazine.co.uk

a solid benefit of being a Stuart Holmes client, thus inspiring brand loyalty. “Everyone who visits the salon is invited to sign up to Indulgence. Our staff have been trained and given targets to ensure clients leave the salon 100 per cent clued up on the benefits of the scheme. From discounts and freebies with other local businesses to invitations and special

events, we ensure our clients get a benefit that they really feel is worthwhile. “We have built up a network of partnerships with top brands such as Hotel Chocolat, Chapter Hotels and Vinegar Hill to secure perks for our clients. These vary depending on the partner from 25 per cent discounts to a complimentary glass of wine on each visit. “When clients sign up for Indulgence,

they are given a personalised black loyalty card that they can show when obtaining their rewards. The card has their loyalty number on the back which also grants them access to the indulgence loyalty membership area on our website. “Intelligent use of our Indulgence database also means we can indulge our clients in other ways. For example, we can send birthday cards and vouchers to clients on their birthdays, anniversary treats for clients who used us for their wedding hair and thank you rewards to clients who consistently have a high average spend. “We also provide our staff with a mechanism for them to indulge their clients. The stylists are the ones predominately building the relationship and they are the ones who may pick up on key events in a client’s life. Stylists know that they can put someone forward for a spot of indulgence and we as the salon management team will ensure the necessary action is taken. This may range from a bunch of flowers or cupcakes sent to the client’s home to complimentary products. We recently had a customer who had a health scare and was very distressed when she visited the salon. To show that we care, we paid for her stylist to send out a little gift to show her we were thinking about her. “Making your clients feel special is so important and a critical part of successful client retention. Ignore it at your peril.” Stuart Holmes has over 23 years’ experience in hairdressing and runs the multi-award winning Stuart Holmes Hair and Beauty Spa in Cheltenham with his wife Sara.
