Your clients read fashion and style magazines. They see what is new and trendy - the looks, the products, the tools. They look to you as a source of information about these new trends, and expect that you can create the latest looks and styles for them in hair, skin, or makeup. When you have acquired a new skill, you can market this information by informing people through word of mouth, or sending out an announcement card. Your employer may wish to advertise the fact in the local newspaper or online. New skills means new clients, as well as enhanced offerings for your existing clients. Sometimes a new skill can command a high fee, such as the relatively new keratin-based straightening treatments offered in many beauty salons. These treatments often command fees of between $250 and $350 per treatment making them a great money-maker for you and your salon. It literally pays to keep up with the trends, and continuing education courses is the way to do it!
