How to Prepare for Holiday Services
The holiday season is undoubtedly one of the busiest of the year for waxers and estheticians as they try to keep up with the demand of regular clients coming in for waxes before parties and holiday gatherings, plus new ones who come in for similar seasonal services. They also have to brace for those coming in with gift certificates they’ve received as presents during this time of year.
So how do you prepare for the holiday rush? The following are some of our best tips to keep up with holiday services and to put yourself first amidst the season!
One of the easiest things to do while trying to keep up with the demand for your waxing services is to accidentally over-book or overwork yourselves.
Always carve out a little extra time as a buffer between services and give yourself plenty of time to decompress during the day so that you can continue to give clients their best results.
As we said, self-care should always be a top priority no matter what your client volume or demand is. Especially as a small business owner, making time for yourself to breathe and focus on running your business between services is integral to the success of your business.
The holiday season is one of the best opportunities for business owners to draw in new customers and new business through gift certificates and seasonal promotions. This year is no different.
Take advantage of these opportunities and bring in new business! Looking for even more marketing opportunities? Check out some of our best salon marketing ideas.
Just as this is a great opportunity for you to bring in new customers thanks to gift certificates and promotional campaigns, it’s an even better opportunity to keep these customers coming back for more!
Keep them coming back with your pricing, service offerings, and the environment at your salon.
