The December issue has landed!

Hello team!

I hope you’re well. I have every faith that you are staying strong like the heroes you are. I promised myself I wouldn’t dwell too much in this note, and the ‘L’ word is strictly banned. Again, as a leading publication within the hair and beauty industry, we have a duty of care and responsibility to carry you through this tricky time and as Queen would say (or sing at the top of their lungs) “The show must go on”, and that my friends, it will.

We have a miscellany of features for you to sink your teeth into and take your minds off the less exciting happenings in the world. We’re kicking our December issue off with a ten-page Party Edit, tell me that’s not something to get excited about! Ok, sure – you’re not doing any party hair or nails currently, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use this time to market what you’ll be offering as soon as you’re back in action. It’s not as if your clients aren’t ever going to party again! The edit is filled with marketing tips as well as which trends are forecasted to be hot at the party scene. There’s also two Create This Style features, party-themed of course, so it would be silly not to give those a try at home! We think it’s all about using your time wisely. You will have had a warm-up last time, so round two needs to be used to your advantage.

Keeping up with the current climate as a business owner is inevitably going to be overwhelming, and we get that. Experts at VTCT have put together some words to shed light on the importance of keeping up with the latest Covid-19 qualifications to ensure your business is on the ball. Now is the perfect time to get these credentials under your belt, so have a read of our Training feature to find out some more information and how it could benefit you.

If you’re like me, you definitely won’t have forgotten that Christmas is just around the corner, (I’m mentally humming ‘Driving Home for Christmas’ for at least 8 hours of the day at the moment) so you’ll know that your clients are going to be on the hunt for gifts for loved ones – lockdown or no lockdown! (Sorry, I said it!) We’ve caught up with some of the biggest names in skincare, who reveal how giving the gift of glowing skin this December by retailing products could be a game-changer. It can be done online!

Remember, we’ve got you every step of the way. Take care.
