Face-to-Face: Hosting Spa Events

Written by  

Knowledge is power; however, with the popularity of skin care on social media, how do professionals help clients navigate through the myths and the truths? More and more platforms are flooded with inaccurate information, making clients believe there is a one-size-fits-all solution to various skin care concerns. 


In-person branded classes and educational events in the spa are becoming more important to showcase professional expertise, ensure that clients are kept informed with accurate information, and secure and increase a loyal client base. Professionals can partner with a skin care supplier to send in a brand educator or have the spa team address clients to explain various skin conditions, the chemistry behind the products, the specific action of the products, or new product launches. 

Many spas plan events around occasions, such as an anniversary event to celebrate the years in business, a spring fling, preparation for winter, a client appreciation event, or whatever is deemed of interest to clients. 


Three Months Prior 

Planning is of the utmost importance for a successful event. A minimum of three months prior to the event the date, time, theme, invitation list, promotions, draws, media to target, decorations, staff that will participate, and areas of the clinic that will be used for the event should be decided. Providing complementary express treatments is always a draw for clients and allows staff to introduce them to treatments on the menu that they may have overlooked. It is a great time to showcase the add-on options clients can book with their facials, such as a chemical peel, arm and leg exfoliation, massage, eyebrow shaping, smoky eye makeup application, or a scalp massage. Offering a different miniature treatment in each of the facial rooms allows clients to float from room to room and experience several of the items being offered.

Thanks for your help! I really appreciate it!

I mean online places, of course! Can you share some? If it is a good one, one will be enough.

Marks Google maps are enough to find offline casinos, so it was kind of obvious you needed online casinos, there was no need to specify. And I can... Show more
