Which item would bring a smile to your client’s face when they picked up their pooch? $6 worth of dematting charges or a $6 feather extension? And, let’s face it – which is a more enjoyable sell? We all know the answer to that one!

Angela Kumpe never ceases to amaze us. She is constantly coming up with new and different creative styling ideas. Her range of creativity is diverse. Many of her ideas are so simple they can be applied in moments. But she doesn’t just stay with simple ideas — she runs the gamut all the way up to elaborate and complicated!

In this lesson, Angela wanted to keep it basic. She demonstrates six easy creative salon add-ons for everyday clients. All six applications can be found in her latest book, The Ultimate Guide to Salon Creative published by Barkleigh Publications.

All six of these creative ideas only take a few moments to do. They are super economical and easy. And even though each application only cost the client between $3-$6 on average, it adds quickly to your bottom line.

If you haven’t jumped into selling creative add-on sales in your salon, this is a great video to watch. These are an easy up-sell for any grooming business. And it’s a whole lot more fun than telling an owner you have to charge them an extra dematting fee!

In this video you will learn:

  • how to apply a temporary tattoo.
  • how to get your client started with simple bling.
  • how to work with blow pens.
  • how-to apply iron on crystals into the coat.
  • suggestions on what to charge for each application.
