Salon of the Month - The Beauty Collective of Dubbo

TBC_salon.png

The Beauty Collective is a boutique beauty salon nestled in the rustic hub of Dubbo's CBD (NSW) in a beautifully restored 1800s cottage.

Owner Danielle Pearce, a professionally trained beauty therapist and highly sought-after make-up artist, has spent many years shaping her business to reflect what she personally seeks from beauty therapy and her focus is to offer professional and personalised beauty treatments with friendly customer service.

As one of the leading local businesses in the Central West area, The Beauty Collective attributes its reputation to the lasting customer relationships that have developed over the years and the belief that all customers deserve the highest level of service.

As Danielle explains, “because The Beauty Collective is solely owned and operated I’m able to provide the highest quality, personalised service to each and every customer. This is what makes us unique, as clients are guaranteed the same friendly therapist at every visit.”

After taking on Youngblood a decade ago after Professional Beauty Solutions took on the distribution, The Beauty Collective now stocks a total of six PBS brands including Sunescape, Image Skincare, Pure Fiji, Cherry Blooms and Wotnot. Before taking on a new brand Danielle thoroughly researches and trials the products to ensure that she personally experiences positive results, and she has seen firsthand the amazing results that PBS brands can deliver.

“As a makeup artist, Youngblood has always been the number one makeup choice for me because of its consistency, product range and company ethics. Stocking Pure Fiji in our salon provides that extra touch of luxury and also allows the client the opportunity to purchase the products that were used during treatment so they can create a similar experience at home. As for Image Skincare, I cannot recommend the range more highly! Having utilised many skincare products over the past 20 years in the industry, Image Skincare is by far the best cosmeceutical skincare range and the results truly speak for themselves.” Danielle Pearce, The Beauty Collective owner

One of the things that makes The Beauty Collective a stand out salon in the Dubbo area is their attention to detail. By establishing a close relationship with their clients they’re able to maintain the highest level of personalised service, every visit. “A follow up call with our clients after a skincare analysis or facial is a must to ensure they’re happy with the results,” says Danielle. She also like to surprise clients with small gestures like a complimentary hand massage, mini promotional products and signature refreshments.

The Beauty Collective’s marketing activities have seen them collaborate with many businesses in the area and they’ve been involved in a number of stunning bridal photoshoots using Youngblood products, which has boosted the salon’s profile as well as that of the Youngblood brand. The Beauty Collective also makes regular use of the PBS MOAP sets on its social media channels and in salon displays to generate interest and excitement around new product releases and special offers, and Danielle says this type of promotion means the products and services sell themselves.

Well done to Danielle for her amazing achievements! PBS are excited to be a part of her success story and we can’t wait to see how The Beauty Collective continues to grow. Congratulations on earning Salon of the Month!

ECOCOCO Introduces Crystal Skin Healing

CRYSTAL SCREENSHOT .jpg

We hope that by now you’re familiar with the latest addition to the PBS collective - ECOCOCO! Australian owned and made, ECOCOCO is a wellness and lifestyle brand developed with natural, organic and performance based ingredients with certified organic coconut being the brand’s hero ingredient. Their signature treatments are designed to fit into any salon’s current business model and draw on wellness philosophies from all over the world, including Thai and Chinese rituals and Ayurvedic medicinal remedies. It’s no surprise then that ECOCOCO’s professional treatments also include the ancient art of crystal skin healing - a practise that dates back to the Middle Ages, 7th century China, ancient Egypt and India, and beyond.

The use of crystals in the wellness realm is nothing new, but in the past few years they’ve seen a huge rise in popularity, thanks in part to crystal-loving celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Bella Hadid, Victoria Beckham and Miranda Kerr. The power of positive energy is everywhere these days and bringing crystals into your salon space and using them in your treatments is great way to cater to clients who subscribe to their benefits (or at least their beauty!). In other words, if you’ve ever thought about incorporating crystals into your salon in any way, now’s the time to do it!

ECOCOCO offer a range of crystal products, designed to be used in various treatments to enhance skin appearance and client wellbeing, and we’re pleased to announce that these are available for purchase by all PBS salons.

ROSE QUARTZ FACIAL CRYSTAL

Perhaps the crystal most synonymous with the current wellness movement, rose quartz is the ultimate beauty crystal, believed to reduce impurities and stress in the skin. ECOCOCO’s rose quartz face crystal is designed for use in a soothing massage (a gentler version of the ancient Chinese practice of gua sha) aimed at increasing microcirculation, thereby plumping and smoothing skin and encouraging cell rejuvenation.

ROSE QUARTZ & AMAZONITE PALM STONES

Designed to fit in the palm of your hand, palm stones are versatile pieces that can be incorporated into treatments in a number of ways. Whether held by clients during treatment or placed on various parts of the face or body during facials and massages, ECOCOCO’s palm stones can be a comforting and grounding tool for your clients

Jade+Eye+Mushroom+%28Set+of+2%29.jpg

JADE EYE MUSHROOM

A highly calming stone, jade is great for use on irritated and inflamed skin and is thought to improve skin elasticity. ECOCOCO’s jade eye mushrooms are designed to be used below the orbital bone in gentle gliding movements that encourage lymphatic drainage and reduce puffiness and the appearance of fine lines.

JADE EYE MASK

The coolness and weight of this mask helps reduce pore size, decreases puffiness and relax fine lines. ECOCOCO recommend keeping it in the fridge for ultimate results.
