As the industry looks ahead to reopening after coronavirus lockdown 3.0, so much focus is on boosting treatment profits once you can welcome clients back to your salon. Knowing that skincare treatments are some of your bread-and-butter services and big money earners, many are focusing on this area of the business by building more bespoke treatment plans (55%), reviewing prices (34%) and getting the team focused on upselling clients (28%) with either back-to-back services or luxury add-ons.

The popularity of waxing –a beauty ritual many clients are missing at the moment – is on your mind too, with just under half (42%) of you predicting brow will be your most sought-after waxing service post-lockdown, followed closely by intimate (39%). Pregnancy waxing is a key service to have on your treatment menu too; check out how to get the best results every time in our feature on page 52.
