Seasonal Strategies

     In keeping with tonight's theme I thought I would share some of my past pedicure specials. I introduce a themed pedicure each season. You can choose to develop a pedicure yourself, or purchase a new treatment from a host of companies and put your own special twist to it. We all get tired of the same old same old. Clients love something new to experience and it even might draw a few people back that you haven't seen in a while. Make sure to let your clients know there is a limited time that you will be offering this new Special treat. This creates a sense of urgency, get them while they last kind of thought process. Have fun and be creative. Maybe there is a company or product line that you have been wanting to try. This is a great opportunity to check it out before you commit to the entire line.

These are examples of a few pedicures I have marketed in the past.

     Don't miss our Orange You Sweet treatment for hands and feet. The scents of Jasmine and Mandarin energizes skin and your senses. The properties of Myrrh and extracts of pomegranate and cucumber alleviates dryness and provides a natural source of Vitamin a, B and C. The natural sugar scrub removes dead skin cells and opens skin to absorb the healing properties of the hydrating mask. Finally a relaxing foot massage with Tamanu hydrating cream. Known as the "sacred healing oil" Tamanu Oil has been used for centuries as a regenerative skin care treatment. Hurry and get your feet sandal ready with Orange You Sweet through June. Serve with and orange drink or fresh orange slices, drink umbrellas optional.

     Introducing our all new Vanilla Colada Spa Treatment. A tropical treat for the mind and body~! Beginning with a luxurious soak in a foot bath infused with Coconut Vanilla Rock Salt. This softening, hydrating foot bath treatment contains Coconut Vanilla extract and Camphor for a refreshing feeling. Next the Coconut Vanilla Sugar Scrub is enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamins A and E to help soften and polish the skin. Sugar is a soft and finer exfoliant, gentle enough to use on the feet, hands and body. A creme mask follows creating a warm sensation when applied to enhance the spa experience. It is enriched with coconut and shea butter to relieve dry skin and sesame oils to moisturize and soften the skin. Last but not least a deep foot massage with Coconut Vanilla Body Lotion, specially formulated for dry skin and intense therapy healing. Made with Aloe, Avocado, Grapeseed Oil and Vitamin A & E, this moisturizing lotion is a perfect end to this delicious spa treat. Now through the end of June don't miss out.

     And of course at the beginning of official sandal season I always print the pledge.  
The Open Toed Shoe Pledge.
As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the r
ules when wearing sandals and other open-toe shoes:
I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. And the sides and tops of my feet will not pudge out between the straps.
I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and chip-free.. SCRATCH THAT.. I'll just go for GEL TOES and have no worries!!!!!
I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe.
I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and yellow.
I will shave the hairs off my big toe.
I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker, mother, sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there.
If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back! into place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it.
I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr. Scholl's if my feet need him.
I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids' sizes. This is out of concern for my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle.
I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell and begin to look like Vienna sausages.
I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sister/coworker when she asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell her that her toes are as long as my fingers and no sandal makes creepy feet look good.
I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that they actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them.
I will promise to go to my local nail salon at least once per season and have a real pedicure.
I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show signs of wear... nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals.
