Tell us why your customer service is so friendly

How you have improved your customer service since April 2015? What impact has this had on your business? How do you involve your customers in improving customer service? Evidence of feedback from customers that demonstrates the excellence of your service would be extremely helpful. We will also consider comments made by customers nominating your business?

I have always been committed to offering exceptional customer service to all clients.  I recruit staff with the same value on customer service and ensure that they maintain these high standards every day.  At Pure Perfection we recognize the benefit of relaxation for general wellbeing and so ensure our client’s experience, from start to finish, is the most relaxing and client-centred experience it can be.

Since April 2015 I have enlisted the assistance of a HR Consultant to help ensure my goal of offering the highest standard of customer service is achieved.  In this time many improvements have been made, all have had a positive impact, changes include:

1.  Holding regular meetings with the staff from all 3 salons to discuss customer feedback and brainstorm new ideas.  These meetings are a great opportunity to encourage and involve staff in the generation of new ideas to improve the customer experience.  Managers report that they feel more energised and motivated after these meetings and pass on the information to their team.

2.  Arranged mystery shops – I was delighted when the results confirmed that we consistently offer our clients excellent customer service.  It also identified areas that we could improve the client experience.

3.  Client Feedback forms have been introduced and are situated in a comfortable seating area.  Many clients have taken advantage of these to pass on their thanks, make suggestions.  Through this exercise we learned that:

  • clients wanted to share the massage experience with their friends / partners so we created a Dual Therapy Room.
  • clients wanted their children to enjoy a pamper experience so Little Ladies Pamper Parties were introduced.

4.  We offer private informal make-up sessions to brides and their bridal party so that they can experiment with make-up and seek guidance from trained professionals whilst enjoying a glass of bubbly and nibbles.

5.  We now place regular Face Book updates and tutorials for our clients.  We advice clients on how to do treatments at home such as eyebrow shaping.  We also demonstrate what they can expect when they come in for treatment.  We have found that understanding the process of certain treatments helps the client relax more.

Making these changes to my salon has made a huge impact with staff feeling more valued and energized.  Based on the feedback I get clients and staff appreciate and value these changes.

We have also seen an increase in appointments and client referrals for which we offer a 20% discount for both parties.  With increased revenue I have been able to invest in more comfortable nail bars and some more relaxing chairs.

Recently individual staff meetings work conducted with the Development Coach (Debs Connell Telephone 07483217704) who’s report was extremely positive and praised the teams commitment to offering excellent customer service and their endeavours to ensure the client feels valued throughout the visit.

We are currently designing a disability and post op awareness training session as I want the team to be able to offer the necessary support and understanding to clients with extra needs due to a medical condition.

I will always invest in our award-winning therapists accessing first class training in top branded treatments and customer service.

I will continue to work with mystery shoppers and using the feedback forms as this keeps me up-to-date with our client’s expectations and desires.

It is so pleasing for me to hear wonderful comments about the team as word of mouth is my biggest advert.  We regularly see recommendations on Face Book from clients who say lovely things about the team and the service they have received.  Many upload photographs of their lovely nails, beautiful eyelashes etc.

Please see the links to You Tube to hear comments from our clients and also a sample of the genuine comments made about us.

I can always guarantee to leave refreshed pampered and extremely satisfied with my treatments which have ranged from Manicures Facials, Eyelash extensions, Massages, Pedicures and Waxing.  The friendliness and dedication of the team with special mention to Carla, Adele and Tara has always brought me back to Pure Perfection time and time again as well as the outstanding decor and relaxing atmosphere of the salons which make you feel as if you are stepping foot into an oasis of luxury and calm and really does provide an escape for a few hours of the stresses and strains of daily life.

How are Botox and fillers performed?

We had a fabulous evening at our Barrowford salon last month.

How are Botox and fillers performed?

Our Nurse Sophie demonstrated some specialist procedures of lip enchantments and Botox treatments.

Many questions were asked off curious customers and were allowed to spectate in the flesh how these treatments were performed so a big thank you Sophie, our ladies were surprised how painless the treatment looked.

What does neglecting sleep do to your skin?

What does neglecting sleep do to your skin?

We talk a lot about the importance of sleep here at Pure Perfection and in this blog we’ll be exploring the impact that neglecting sleep can have on your skin. We’re all guilty of neglecting shut-eye from time to time, whether it be because of nights out, working late, inability to sleep etc but as well as making us feel rubbish, lack of sleep can also wreak havoc with our skin. Keep reading to learn how, and remember to treat yourself to an early night, tonight!

1) Not enough sleep = stressed out skin = breakouts

When it comes to the condition of your skin, the stress hormone cortisol has a big role to play. Here comes the science bit! Cortisol levels naturally decrease while we hit the hay, allowing the skin to protect and regenerate itself. However, miss out on the sacred zzzzzz’s and that cycle becomes disrupted, resulting in… you guessed it – the likelihood of acne breakouts. Sigh!

2) A good night’s sleep can help you to look younger

Back to cortisol for a brief moment – when high, the hormone has a role to play in the breaking down of collagen (which is the essential protein in keeping skin looking fresh and young) and elastic tissue. So, what does this mean? The dreaded premature ageing, that’s what.

Another issue associated with lack of sleep is that your body doesn’t make as much human growth hormone (which stimulates cell production), so skin won’t be as thick in texture. Without time to fix yesterday’s damage and produce new, fresh cells, the ageing process is accelerated and the collagen may prematurely stiffen resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. Oh no!

As well as getting more sleep, try using a product that contains retinol and will help to stimulate healthy collagen production, and also invest in an anti-ageing cream at night so your skin can absorb it while repairing itself.

3) It weakens your defence system

Our skin cells step up the production of protective antioxidants for the next day while we sleep, which is important when we consider that antioxidants can reduce free-radical damage to the skin from UV rays. So if you are guilty of missing some z’s, try adding extra antioxidant protection to your skin-care routine to prevent free-radical damage and also make sure you eat plenty of fruit and veg which also contain them and will give your skin a much needed boost.

4) Your skin will be seriously thirsty after an all-nighter

Too much time away from the bedroom is bound to result in dry skin, which can be tight, itchy and leaves us not feeling our best. Lack of sleep can promote inflammation along with skin-barrier dysfunction, leading to lack of hydration. So try using a product, which both hydrates and plumps to improve the condition of the skin. Also, don’t forget about the amazing benefits of water for hydrating the skin. Aim to drink at least two liters a day and even more in the summer.

Perfect Brows in 5 Steps

How to Get Perfect Brows in 5 Steps

Step 1: Brush it up

The first thing you’re going to do is comb your hairs up to see where they need to be filled in, starting from the front working towards the tail of the brow.

Step 2: Measure it

Your best brow aligns with the inner tear duct with an arch that’s about 11 o’clock from right where sleep collects.

Step 3: Throw some shade

Next you’re going to use the hd brow palette that goes underneath the hairs to fill in density.

Step 4: Add detail

Then adding a little bit more fullness to the front for that supermodel thickness, you’re going to take the Brow Pen and you’re going to just draw in hairs right at the front towards the nose and then you’re also going to add more density to the tail.

Step 5: Set it

Finish with clear brow gel combing hairs up because you want to show that hair texture and highlight under the brow shape. It locks it in place and your brows are done.
