Why do clients want to come back to an Esthetician for regular treatments and trust them with their skin? Their ability yes for sure, but also how they feel when they are there. My goal with every client that walks through my door and is on my table, is to treat them as they are VIP. I want them to feel special and pampered every time. After all, client experience is key to keeping clients coming back. Here are some ideas for adding that magic touch in the treatment room:
I always prepare for my guest by having a presentable table, workspace, and always some kind of aromatherapy in the room- whether that’s incense, essential oil diffuser, candles, sage, room spray.
I start each client with an opening ritual with an inhalation of essential oils and 3 deep breaths. I place my hand on their forehead and another on their sternum and as they breathe in, I press down on their forehead and as they breathe out, I press gently on their sternum. I then do some reiki on the client to balance them and ground them for their service and bring them more deeply into the present moment.
All of my clients have the option before their service (they have to tell me ahead of time, so I allow enough appointment time) of reading an oracle card from my collection. I have them choose which box they are drawn to intuitively and we do the reading together.
I love crystals and their healing benefits! I offer my client the opportunity to choose a crystal before their service, then read what that particular crystal’s healing properties are. The crystal will be placed on their body for healing during their treatment.
Hot Stone Hand and Arm Massage
This adds a level of unexpected luxury to each service while they have a mask on!
Neck and Decollete
Don’t forget to include the neck and decollete when applying all products to really feel like they are getting the VIP treatment!
Jade-roller, gua-sha, facial cupping included in facial massage- Maybe not all of those, but picking one and making it special to have the added benefit in addition to your hands!
Water After the Service
Giving water to take with them to-go when they are finished with their treatment!
Messaging the client after the service either the next day or 2 days after to follow up on how their skin is and how they are feeling.
Adding in these rituals will enhance every service to feel more luxurious and allow for the client to feel VIP!
