Tip: Pampering goes before chocolates and roses on Valentine’s Day. Consider offering special combination packages catering to the love doves. Create Valentine’s Day gift suggestions such as ‘2 for 1’ deals plus Champagne and treats.
All hearts decor

Tip: The colour of love is red. So there’s your colour choice. Heart, roses and other classic love-inspired decorations should definitely be fronted in your salon. But try to go beyond that: what will you be wearing? what music will be played? Think about the whole experience. Go further!

Last minute gift cards
Ironically, last-minute shoppers are the ideal customers for you. Be a hero and help the lost souls that forgot about the big day – gift cards could be the perfect present for a loved one on Valentine’s Day.
