Thing I learned • I learned that you need to keep your self busy • I learned you need to always talk to the customer • I learned that you need to do laundry everyday
They clean the combs so they don’t spread germs or hair conditions between people • They clean their chairs with Clorox • They always clean the sinks • They clean the towels • They use a special light to clean/sanitize their manicure tools Sanitation
Manicure One day Mrs.Bockmier got a manicure and I watched the steps Step one: Take off old nail polish Step two: Shape the nail with a file Step three: Use the nail buff to make the nail shiny and smooth Step four: Push the cuticles back and trim them Step five: Put a green mask on the hands and wrap the hand in hot towels Step six: Take the mask off the hand Step seven: Put hot wax on hand (in a special bag), let dry , and take off Step eight : Massage the hand with lotion Step nine: Put the undercoat on the nails Step ten: Put nail polish on Step eleven: Put top coat on Step twelve: Let dry I got to pick out Mrs. Bockmier’s nail polish color and I chose blue I learned that in competition you have to cover the nail in three brush strokes.
Socialize It’s important to socialize with the customers so they don’t think you're rude Also, it’s important you know how they want their nails or hair done One of my jobs was to greet customers as they came in.
Shampoo/Conditioner I had to use a funnel to refill shampoo bottles. I had to wipe the shampoo bottles off after I refilled them. I also had to refill the conditioner bottle. This is a job that always needs to be done because the shampoo and conditioner is used a lot.
Shelves I had to take all the product off the shelves, then I had to wipe the shelves off and put all the product back on the shelves. I also had to wipe off the product. This needs to be done because the shelves get dirty and the product gets sticky.
Cleaning • I had to sweep the floor • I did the laundry • I had to wash the windows • I had to wipe the mirrors off • I cleaned the sinks • I mopped the mats that go under the chairs • I had to wipe off shelves All of this is done at a salon, its not just doing hair.
Bloopers • One day, I was rinsing the outside of the shampoo bottles at the shampoo chair. At the chair, the hose points straight up until you pull it out and point it down into the sink. I accidentally left the hose pointing up when I turned on the water. I got water all over the floor and wall because it shot straight up. Everyone laughed. • One day, I was getting my hands waxed. Instead of having my hands down, I had them up. When Laurie poured the wax in the bag, some poured out. I got wax all over the floor and on my shoe. • I learned that you always have to be watching and paying attention!
Paraffin Hand Dip • Step one: get a bag out • Step two: pour two cups of hot wax into the bag • Step three: put the customer’s hand in the bag • Step four: press the wax all over the customer’s hands • Step five: let the wax set until it hardens • Step six: take the wax off the customer’s hands by sliding the bag and wax off I had a paraffin hand dip and after my hands were really soft. Then, I got to give Mrs. Bockmier a hand dip.
Thank you Thank you so much for the cake and the card and for letting me help. I enjoyed it and I learned a lot!
