We are now knees deep into the WINTER HOLIDAYS season. I need to be honest; I am not as busy as I would like to be. So this is a list of a few ways you can help support me & get me a little bit more business…

(1) I have quite a few items available for gifts (family, friends, coworkers, neighbors…)!! Not only do I always have gift certificates (pick up paper ones in-studio, or purchase online from my website/Square), my own citrus lotion blend (available in two sizes), my own citrus scrub blend (use on hands, feet, elbows, knees, shoulders, etc), professional polish remover, foot files & foot care treatments, and a huge array of cuticle oils (scents, applicator styles, & sizes!), but I also made up some gift bags so you can just grab ‘n go! PREMADE care kits, in a cute holiday-themed cloth bag (my mother sewed them), for at home maintenance of your hands & feet. Kits include: Manicure, Pedicure, Mini Care, Gel Polish (or other soak off treatments) Removal, and Mini Gel Polish Removal. Photos and pricing for each premade kit can be found in my RETAIL album on FB. Please note – I have extra bags on hand if you want to customize your own kit!

(2) *Please note* FOR THE MONTHS OF NOVEMBER & DECEMBER, I AM REQUIRING 48 HOURS NOTICE FOR CANCELLATIONS!!! If you no show, or cancel with less notice, you will be charged the full price of your scheduled appointment (medical exceptions, within reason). Payment is due *immediately*, & failure to do so may result in cancellation of all future appointments, a required prepayment, &/or not allowing you to book in the future.

(3) NOW is the time to schedule/reschedule/add to your existing appointment this month. Think about any gatherings, parties, events, and possible travel you’ll be doing. If you need to schedule/reschedule, feel free to do it yourself, or message me and I can take care of it for you. Note – rescheduling/canceling needs to be done at least 48 hours ahead of your current appointment time!

(4) If you’d like to add on to your scheduled service(s), you can also do that yourself, or message me to do it. Add ons include — Dazzle Dry, Gel Polish, Scrub (slough off that dead stuff), Paraffin Dip (awesome for these cold days we’re having!), extra massage time (who doesn’t want that?!!?), IBX treatment (strengthen your natural nails), and all the art!!

(5) Remember, I do have a referral program. Send me five clients, and you’ll get $25 off your next service! For the holiday season, I’ll even swap out the discount for a gift certificate, so you can give someone else the gift of my services. It’s a win/win! I get a new client (or at least fill my books) and you get rewarded! THIS EVEN APPLIES TO NON- (or non-active) CLIENTS, so tell all your people.

(6) Hillsboro has an “All About Hillsboro” Facebook page. I have two current clients who make sure to recommend me in that group when people ask for nail salon referrals. To help me grow my business, I gently ask that a few more of you who live local do the same. If you don’t live in Hillsboro, it would be really appreciated if you did the same in your own local group. And just to be clear, you don’t have to, but it would really help grow my business which I desperately need.

(7) Feel free to take a couple of the candies available for you, but please eat them either before you wash your hands or completely after your appointment, not during.

And last, I want to express my gratitude for continuing to support my business in whatever way you have and continue to do. I truly appreciate each and every one of you and hope the holiday season goes about as well as it can for all of us.
