Semi permanent make up training: Your questions answered

Question 1) Where do you find your clients?

The moment you pay your deposit and arrange dates for you training, Finishing Touches post you the marketing material in the form of leaflets and posters to begin promoting the procedures.

If you are not a salon owner, or you do not have a client base to approach, you can put posters up everywhere, at the gym, health centre, local pool, schools etc.

You may wish to consider advertising and building interest in the procedures, even before you have completed your training and social media sites are always a good place to start.

Many salons look for a Finishing Touches trained technician to run a clinic and offer their clients semi-permanent make up. Start approaching salon owners now to see if there would be an interest.

You can offer a percentage of the profit from the procedure, or a flat fee.

It is often a good idea to run an Open Evening in order to demonstrate the procedure. Offer a discount for those that book a procedure as a result.

As a Finishing Touches trained technician you will be listed on our find a technician page on our website.

Build your own website.

Your trainer will teach you how to take photographs of all your procedures, take them carefully to build a bank of images to promote your work.

In the meantime Finishing Touches have a disc of images that you can use to produce a website.

2) Where should you offer these procedures?

Insurance requires you work from a dedicated room with a washable floor and easy access to hot and cold running water. Unless you have your own salon, a great way to reach as many clients as possible is through other people’s premises.

Salon owners have requests for these procedures and you can be their solution.

There is so much profit in each procedure that you can offer a salon owner a fixed rate or percentage of a procedure for every one they book for you.

3) Will you need to arrange clinical waste and Sharps Collection?

Yes! Finishing Touches supply you with a Sharps box as part of your Diploma kit, for your needles and clinical waste. You will need to contact a local company to arrange for this to be collected.
