Profit from Eyebrow Design and Brazilian Waxing
Posted: November 25, 2008, from the December 2008 issue of Skin Inc. magazine.
When you see an eyebrow or Brazilian wax on your books, do you panic? Are you among the many spa professionals who have banned performing these services altogether due to your fear of taking off too much? If so, you’re not alone. These are common reactions to performing two incredibly intimidating waxing services.
If you think that your business can get by without placing these services on the menu, think again. Eyebrow design and Brazilian waxing are some of the most requested waxing services. Spas know this, and many now require spa professionals to be proficient in performing these services. To be successful with these techniques, you have to conquer the fear that goes along with executing them.
Less hair = more money
Waxing, in general, is a high-profit treatment with low overhead that will comprise at least half of your total service revenue, and eyebrows and Brazilians commonly make up a large majority of that.
The hairless trend has spawned the need for a new breed of spa, devoted exclusively to the art of hair removal. These businesses offer every conceivable method to choose from, including waxing, sugaring, threading, tweezing, laser and electrolysis, and everyone from estheticians to physicians are jumping on the bandwagon.
