After a very long 4 months, ‘close contact’ treatments can now resume and beauty professionals can finally start offering their full treatment menu again! For many therapists, aestheticians and beauty professionals, this means they can FINALLY go back to work! We are so excited to start seeing transformations again!
It has been a very strange time for everyone recently, especially the beauty industry and as an industry, we haven’t really been looked after by the government. BUT! We are very proud 0f everyone in the TCBG community, and at TCBG, despite being officially closed, we have achieved so much!
At the very beginning of lockdown, we launched our online platform! Our amazing educators were able to adapt all of our classroom courses onto online, so that while beauty professionals are at home, they are able to upskill! We kicked this off with a series of FREE courses, including Salon Safety and Hygiene, Salon Staff Management and Behind The Mask. We were really proud to have partnered with Behind The Mask for this course, as domestic violence has grown by 20% through the COVID-19 pandemic, so we felt it was really important that we put some training in place so that beauty professionals would be able to spot the signs of domestic violence and help clients if needed, once salons reopen.
At the beginning of April, we launched Beauty Boss, a platform dedicated to the marketing and business side of running a beauty business. Throughout lockdown, we have run FREE full training complete with downloadable resources for different aspects of running a beauty business such as selling techniques in our Sell Like a Boss challenge, programming your mindset for success in the Mindset Mastermind challenge and how to price your services in order to be able to turn a profit and achieve your dream lifestyle, in Pricing for Profit.
Throughout May, we continued with our Salon in The Spotlight initiative, but renamed it ‘There’s no place like your salon’, so that we could shine a light on some of the gorgeous salons within our community, while we weren’t actually able to be in them! We know that beauty professionals usually spend so much time in their salon, it ends up feeling like a second home! So we wanted to really celebrate them.
In May, we also saw so many of you sign up to our Lipnv online course! We’ve had such great feedback on it and it was amazing to see so many of you using your time at home to upskill! Don’t forget, you can actually still enrol today! Check it out here.
At the start of June, we launched our Beauty Boss Community, a closed Facebook group full of Beauty Bosses to support each other! This is home to our training and where we host our LIVEs. It is also where we announce all things Beauty Boss! Have you joined yet? Join now to be the first to know about all upcoming training!
At the end of June, we also started taking bookings for classroom courses again, starting in September! This was super exciting for us as we can’t wait to get back to teaching our lovely students! If you missed this, keep an eye on our Facebook page as this is where we usually announce it!
As we knew Boris Johnson would be announcing that we could return to work soon, we produced a Risk Assessment designed specifically for the beauty industry to get you prepared for your return to work, this was extremely in depth and specific for this industry and SO many of you used it! You can still find it here. Alongside this, we created a ‘TCBG’s Guide to Getting Back to Work’, this explored so many different aspects of returning to work, such as communicating with your clients about your re-opening and bringing your staff off furlough! You can still find this here if you’re re-opening your salon now.
Throughout July, we also ran promotions through at www.thecreativebeautygroup.co.uk to assist you with getting your salon re-open! This included 40% off ALL Gel II and Entity products (use code JULY40), Buy Step 1 & 2 Lashnv Lift and get Step 3 FREE (use code LIFT) and if you buy a Lashnv Lift Taster Kit, you can enrol on a Brownv Lamination Course HALF PRICE! Keep your eyes peeled over on our TCBG Facebook page for more upcoming offers!
The last few months have been tough for everyone, but finally things are starting to feel normal again! We are so excited to start seeing everyone’s transformations again (don’t forget to tag us!). We hope everything goes smoothly and you all enjoy being back doing what you love!
Don’t forget to join our closed Facebook Group for endless support!
Until next time, stay creative! 💚
