As we continue to offer free education to the beauty salon and spa industries during lockdown, this week’s stellar Webinar line-up includes talks on the steps you need to take to become a sustainable beauty salon and how to win the industry’s biggest nail competitions.

Plus, we have a special business session with PB columnist Hellen Ward who will be giving advice on how to make your beauty salon or spa financially strong when you open post-coronavirus.


What to expect from this week’s PB webinar line-up (April 20–24):

Three industry experts – Sara Young, spa operations manager at The Spa at South Lodge; Diane Nettleton, director of Gaia Spa and and founder of Gaia Skincare; and Lucy Brialey, director of The Sustainable Spa Association – reveal the steps to take post Covid-19 to make your beauty salon or spa more sustainable, from simple eco-swaps, reducing plastic waste and how to work with suppliers more.

Every beauty salon owner has had to get to grips with huge amounts of employment legislation during the coronavirus crisis, but on the flipside, there’s never been an opportunity like this to redefine the rules and regulations you need in place to restart the business when the time comes. Hellen Ward will talk through what she's done to update her business's terms and conditions of employment, staff handbook, and policies and procedures, and spring-cleaning operations to come back slicker and more productive.
