Salon of the Month - Saya Medispa

Congratulations to Aleshia-Ann Fowler and the team at Saya Medispa for being named our Salon of the Month for January! Located in the Morning peninsula of Victoria, Saya Medispa specialise in providing all beauty and spa services from basic waxing and tanning to manicure and pedicures, as well as offering advanced facial treatments and full body treatments.

Saya opened 5 years ago with 2 therapists and 0 clients. Today, they have 5 staff members and a database of over 3,000 clients which continues to grow each day! Saya Medispa believes that their experience and relationships they have with their clients is what sets them apart from other spas.

“Our client’s comfort and experience are our main priority, ensuring each treatment goes above and beyond their expectations” states salon owner, Aleshia-Anne Fowler. “Saya has a distinctive essence when you walk into the salon. Clients enjoy visiting us even if it’s just for a wax, as they are still in an environment that’s relaxing and welcoming. Many clients say “I feel like I am in Fiji when I am here” and this is exactly how we want them to feel…relaxed and as if they are somewhere other than just another local salon.”

Saya Medispa currently stock the majority of PBS brands since initially taking on Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics in 2013. They are also stockists of Sunescape, Pure Fiji, Body Sugaring Australia, Bestow Beauty, Wotnot Naturals, Caronlab, Cherry Blooms, and have just recently taken on PBS’ two newest brands – LUK Beautifood and ECOCOCO.

“We started off with just stocking Youngblood and Pure Fiji and our love for all the brands PBS stock just grew. Each brand PBS introduces I have to get my hands on and try. We are always trying to keep up to date with the latest trends in our industry and we believe that PBS provides us with ALL of the information we need to be able to provide the best possible treatments and products to our ever-growing clientele.” explains Aleshia.

Saya Medispa continues to grow their clientele with loyalty programs, customer feedback and their VIP shopping nights. They have held two events this year where they offered 20% of their entire retail stock, with selected stock reduced even further. “We found that clients purchase more products and try more products than they have ever tried before. Each client spends a minimum of $150 and we are getting at least 15-30 clients visit these VIP Shopping Nights. These nights have been a major success as we have more and more clients making repeat purchases after trying and falling in love with new products they might not have tried otherwise.” said Aleshia.

On top of an already big year for Saya Medispa, they received “Pure Fiji Stockist of the Year – Runner Up” at PBS’ annual awards night in September. They are also a major sponsor for Mikaela-Rose Fowler who is the current Miss Intercontinental Australia 2018.

Saya Medispa has also found success in using PBS’ Marketing on a Platter (MOAP), using social media graphics to promote their products on social media as well as Youngblood 4 Minute Makeovers to upsell and introduce new products to their clients.

All Wrapped Up: Beauty Expo 2018

Expo18_Sunescape002.jpg

Done and dusted for another year, Beauty Expo Australia came and went in the snap of our fingers, and it’s safe to say that it was one crazy and exciting weekend for us here at PBS and we’re sure for all of our salon partners as well.

With a huge presence across the expo floor, we showcased all 12 brands under the PBS umbrella, including our latest recruits, Luk Beautifood and ECOCOCO. With 8 visually knock out and insta-worthy stands, (we practically built 8 retails stores from scratch), our team was pushed to our limits to deliver an incredible experience for salon visitors from across the county, as well as reassure you all why PBS is ‘your complete solution. Highlights included the free Signature Foot Rituals and traditional Fijian signers and dancers at the Pure Fiji stand, the delightfully relaxing Dermalux LED Light lounge, the express peels at Image Skincare and the complimentary wellness body treatments at ECOCOCO. It is safe to say that this has been, without a doubt, our biggest expo yet!

We would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came and took the time to visit the Professional Beauty Solutions corner of the expo floor. We are humbled by the amazing support from so many of our wonderful salons!

What Goes On, Goes In

As consumers realise how the health of their skin is directly influenced by the nutrients that are available to them, we look into the rise of the ‘Clean Beauty’ movement and what your business needs to do to stay ahead of this leading trend.

Like pre-packaged food, many beauty products don’t deliver the benefits they promise, and eye-catching packaging coupled with flashy marketing can disguise a host of unhealthy ingredients. With consumers catching onto this ruse, it’s no wonder many are starting to scan beauty labels as thoroughly as they would their food, and calling for products that are healthy, ‘clean’ and safe.

‘Clean’ beauty products are not only free from toxins – like carcinogens and endocrine disruptors that can enter your bloodstream and cause havoc to your skin – but are also harnessing the power of superfoods as key ingredients. Think nut oils, chia seeds, probiotics, berry extracts and more, that contain high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, proven to calm and protect skin when applied both topically and consumed internally.

One company leading the ‘Clean Beauty’ movement in Australia is Lük Beautifood. While conventional lipsticks can be a source of harmful chemicals, Lük Beautifood harnesses the powers of organic produce to boast a range of all-natural, ‘clean’ Lip Nourish Lipsticks, infused with food-active ingredients, like avocado, citrus and cacao.

“More and more women are realising that beauty is a natural extension of health, which can be heavily affected by the products you use daily,” says Cindy Luken, founder of Lük Beautifood.

After realising women wanted the opportunity to cultivate natural beauty without compromising on health or wellbeing, Cindy Luken – a food scientist and chef in her own right – used her knowledge to develop toxin-free lipsticks in 2012. Following much trial and error in her test kitchen, experimenting with delicious food active ingredients, Luken knew she had caught onto something that would change the traditional cosmetics market.

“Our products are made from organic ingredients that you could literally eat, without a second thought. And when you consider that the average woman ingests 1.7kg of lipstick in her lifetime, that’s pretty important!” says Luken.

It is clear now that the ‘Clean Beauty’ movement is gaining even more momentum, now extending beyond a fringe group and into the masses at beauty counters. Made popular by the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow and Miranda Kerr with their brands Goop and Kora Organics respectively, ‘healthy’ and ‘toxin-free’ are prominent buzzwords among the modern beauty user, who will unreservedly demand products that align with their lifestyle and values.

As the retail and service sectors rapidly rise in this ‘clean’ product space, it is crucial for businesses to cater to this forward-thinking market with beauty brands created to accommodate this trending shift.
