10 Beauty Secrets for Cosmetologists & Their Clients

Salon Plaza Countdown:

10 Beauty Secrets for Cosmetologists!

You know the Golden Rule - Do Unto Others...

This moral precept describes a "two-way" mutual relationship between one's self and others. We usually think about this as treating OTHERS well.  

As women, we often overlook the flip side - treating OURSELVES as carefully as we would others. To give OURSELVES the same consideration and service that we give our family, friends and clients.

Our July Member of the Month, Rickisha White, is an excellent example of a salon owner who gets this right.

Attractiveness and Beauty come from within. When you start your day and carry through with love and consideration for yourself, you'll become a light for your clients.

These 10 Beauty Secrets will show you how to live BOTH sides of the Golden Rule:
