In the April issue...

In the April issue of Professional Beauty we explore some top tips for waxing treatments, as well as examining your position when it comes to preventing therapists from taking their clients with them when they leave your salon or spa.

Just a few of the highlights you can look forward to in this issue include:

Nurture in nature: Grade I-listed manor house Borringdon Hall is set to open its major Gaia Spa development in May with 12 treatment rooms and its own product line. We take a look behind the scenes at the Plymouth hotel, which is part of the Nettleton Collection.

Sticky situation: We asked some of the industry's most experienced the waxing pros to share their “hairy tales” about challenging treatments, along with advice to avoid the same thing happening to you. From dealing with spillages, or sensitive skin to calming first-timers' nerves, the pros have it covered.

Restrictive covenants: Many salons have contracts that seek to restrict where an employee can work after they resign and it’s one way of protecting your client base. Restrictive covenants are used to stop former employees competing or soliciting clients but they have to strike a balance between protecting your business legitimately and allowing the employee to use their skills and continue working. David Wright explains the dos and don'ts.
