We are about to get into some upgrade percentage calculations, but you can see rather quickly that for each hour you have a facial booked, you can make anywhere between $26 - $49 dollars, and the spa can take in between $49 - $91 per hour in profit less it’s fixed costs. And don’t forget, most people tip Angela a percentage based on the total cost of the service, so as her service dollars increase, so do her T I P S!

These first calculations are based on a 30% (20% do a Kiss, 10% do a Super Kiss) total upgrade average and show ADDITIONAL income possible over and above simply doing Basic Facials. We assume Angela is performing 5 facials per 8 hour day, with her week based on a 5 day work week. We’ll then do the numbers on a 60% (40% do a Kiss, 20% do a Super Kiss) upgrade average.

Here are some new numbers to keep in mind here for our moderately priced Spa Bella. The Basic Facial commission amount is $26, the Kiss Facial amount is $39 and Super Kiss commission is $49. So the commission difference between a Basic Facial ($39 - $26 = $13) and a Kiss is $13, and the additional money earned by doing a Super Kiss over a Basic Facial ($49 - $26 = $23) is $23.

Angela’s Abundance at Thirty Percent

Extra income generated for Angela with a 30% upgrade average

Two days: $49 in additional income ($24.50/day)

calculation: .20 x 10 facials = 2 Kiss facials (2 x $13 = $26)

.10 x 10 facials = 1 Super Kiss facial (1 x $23 = $23)

One week: $122.50 in additional income

calculation: $24.50/day x 5 days = $122.50

Four week/month: $490 in additional income

calculation: $122.50/week x 4 weeks = $490

Thirteen week/3 month (quarter): $1,592.50 in additional income

calculation: $122.50/week x 13 weeks = $1,592.50

One year: $6,370 in additional income in Angela’s paycheck
