Savvy Salon: Images Luxury Nail Lounge
Images Luxury Nail Lounge is a Southern California-based chain offers first-class services at four sophisticated spots.
We offer a relaxing environment for our clients to experience first-class service with a glass of wine or champagne. We are well known for our $25,000 manicure service that includes GIA diamonds along with 24K gold. Other services include non-surgical cosmetic procedures performed by licensed physicians, such as Botox, Liposonix and Thermage. We have four salons in Southern California: a second salon in Irvine and two in Newport Beach. They are located in mostly affluent neighborhoods with upscale malls.
We used a team of top architects and designers to custom-build the interiors of all of our salons. Our goal is to provide clients with a luxurious environment.
Each location has a unique set of clients for that area; it ranges from young professionals to established business owners to retirees. Services include traditional manicures as well as trendy nail art, and visits last from 30-60 minutes. We also have male clients who come in regularly for mani/pedi services.
The most common nail services are gel manicures and pedicures. Of our non-surgical cosmetic procedures, Botox is the most popular.
Facebook is the most active social media channel for us.
The best compliment we’ve received about Luxury Nail Lounge is a client who said, “I’m going to bring my family and friends!”
We use polish brands that are a minimum of 5-free and we also retail Dermalogica products for those clients who regularly get facial services.
Don’t lower your prices and lessen your services to be competitive. Also, when you have multiple locations, managing the staff and technicians while ensuring good client relations is key. Be sure to hire experienced managers, and make customer service a No. 1 priority for the salon.
