Nail Salons: How To Stand Out From The Competition

The nail salon industry in the United States is comprised of nail care services including manicures, pedicures and the sale of nail care products like nail polish and nail care accessories. According to Statista.com, as of 2018, there were almost 395,600 nail technicians and just over 56,300 individual nail salons in the United States. That’s a lot of nail salons!

With so many nail salons for consumers to choose from, how do you get your business to stand out from the others?

Deliver an exceptional final product and amazing service.

This may seem like the most obvious answer but oftentimes, business owners and staff get caught up in the day-to-day operations that they think they are delivering quality service, but in reality, they are not. Not greeting customers when they come through the door and making them wait long periods of time, rushing through a service, not answering the phone, these are all things that may make that customer walk right back out that door and go to a competitor down the street. If you are a business owner, take a moment to step back and evaluate your customer service delivery. Look at add-on services that your customers may enjoy such as complimentary refreshing fruit infused water or a bar that serves wine and fun drinks. Offer packages for mommy/daughter pedicures or a bachelorette party bundle that includes more than one service. Create an experience that will keep your customers coming back again and again.

Be committed to safety and have an impeccably clean salon with sterilized tools.

According to Good Housekeeping when choosing a salon, take note of the tools they use and if they are sterilized. “Salons that are committed to the safety and well-being of your nails always use sterilized tools.” Are the workstations clean? Are all tools sterilized and in sealed plastic? Be sure to watch them open these packages in front of you. When in doubt, bring your own tool kit and nail polish. For more tips on salon safety, check out this article.

Create a spa-like experience for every guest that walks through your door.

This can be everything from working massage chairs at the pedicure station to soft touches throughout the salon. Live plants, aromatherapy, chandeliers, and beautiful curtains on windows as well as any areas storing supplies can all help create a soothing experience for your guests. One nail salon did just that by adding lush curtains to their windows. It not only helps create great curb appeal, but it also enhances the look in the interior of the salon.

 

Creating a salon that is welcoming and safe should be a top priority for all salon owners and can help your business stand out from the competition. If Curtain-Tracks can help your business achieve a more aesthetic look, please contact our friendly customer service team. We are here to help!

Bending I Beam Curtain Track

One of the great benefits of the RECMAR 4108 I-Beam curtain track (also used in the 4372 Deluxe Shower Curtain Track Kit) is that it can be bent into angles or arcs by hand without the need for any special tools, equipment, or inserts.  This track can be bent to a 90 degree angle while requiring only a 2 inch bend radius.

The Garage Gets a Facelift with Curtain Walls


MULTI PURPOSE

Did you know that only 84% of Americans use their garage to park a car? Things like storage and workspace are beginning to invade garage space, according to a recent poll. Because of the flexibility needed in a garage, we would like to suggest a curtain wall created by some of Curtain-Tracks products.



HIDE THE CLUTTER

The first curtain wall in the garage could be used to partition and hide storage space. Many homeowners line the walls of their garage with their yard tools, lawn mower, out of season shoes, toys, etc., etc., etc. Although it makes sense to store these things in the garage, it also creates a visual nightmare that makes some homeowners embarrassed by the space. (Almost 1 in 4 homeowners report that their garage is too cluttered.)

Creating a curtain wall as a visual barrier can immediately create a feeling of calm and order in the garage. This visual boundary can also add a bit of flair and design to the garage, as a warm welcome home after a long day at work. Much better than a welcome home to chaos and reminders of projects that are not yet complete.

HIDE THE PROJECT NOISE AND MESS

The second curtain wall that could be used in a garage is one that can be opened and closed depending on what project is happening at the time. If your spouse is cutting tile, for example, a curtain track surrounding the wet saw would help to catch any spraying water and would also dampen the sound. We would recommend one of our heavier duty tracks for this purpose, such as our Extra Heavy Duty Track. This track has an industrial look that will fit an industrial space, and is made of aluminum which will hold up to the elements of a garage while also keeping it’s strength. You could also use a Flexible Track to create a curtain wall with an unusual shape, or any of the additional tracks listed here.

Because of the nature of a garage, we suggest using one of our more rugged, industrial curtains. We have a few that are not listed on our website, so give us a call at 1-888-434-7444 to learn more about these products. Another option for the more budget conscious DIYer is using a tarp from your local hardware store. Hanging a tarp or heavy duty curtain in a space like this can contain the dust and even some of the sound that comes along with projects happening in the garage.

So, what project have you been putting off? Why not create a fun and functional space in your garage today and start checking off your to-do list?

Tried AND True, The Flexible Curtain Track Is Your Go-To Track

ONE OF OUR FAVS

You might have heard us mention the 6100 Flexible Curtain Track in previous blog posts or on our Facebook page. We talk about this fabulous track so often because we love how diverse it is. Whether you are working on a small project in your home, boat or RV, or even on a larger project, chances are, this track will be the best product for the job.

Our 6100 Flexible Curtain Track is one of our most popular tracks and for good reason. The flexible track is a white, I-beam configuration track that can be mounted to the wall or the ceiling. It’s a durable track with an internal metal spine, and is available in standard, medium, and heavy duty sizes to accommodate various weights of curtains or draperies.



BENDY

It’s not called the Flexible Curtain Track for nothing! What makes it so great is that it can be bent by hand without compromising strength (no need to be Superman!), so it can be used for straight and curved applications. Perfect for unique angles, like bay windows, around claw foot bathtubs, and even storage areas, this track is your go-to for your next project.

The 6100 Flexible curtain track is sold by the foot and requires mounting cartridges every 10 inches. Our new and improved website provides an entire list of compatible products so you can easily find everything you need to complete your next project.

If you are ready to tackle your next project, don’t be intimidated. Our friendly customer service team can help every step of the way.

Creating A Safe Shower


STAYING HOME LONGER

According to the Population Reference Bureau, there are more than 46 million adults ages 65 and older in the United States. It is estimated that this population will grow to over 98 million by 2060. With the increasing aging population, more adults are living at home longer rather than moving to a senior living community. By staying home longer, adjustments often have to be made around the home to make it safe for older adults. One common change is converting a bathtub to a shower allowing for a safer bathing experience. When this happens, we often have customers call us for curtain track solutions.



TWO GREAT CHOICES

These curbless showers need to be enclosed properly, not only for both water runoff, but also to maintain privacy. For this particular project, we recommend either the 6100 Flexible Curtain Track or the 88001 Privacy Cubicle Curtain track. The flexible curtain track is sold by the foot and priced per foot of track and allows long continuous lengths for curved or angled applications, but can also be used for straight applications. It can be bent by hand to accommodate the shower size and ensure the entire area is enclosed.

The privacy cubicle curtain track is an aluminum track with a silver satin finish and can be installed directly into the ceiling, Available in 6 foot, 8 foot, 12 foot and 16 foot sections, it can be spliced together for longer applications. This track is commonly used in Hospitals and are often paired with our long nylon curtain panels.


QUALITY YOU CAN TRUST

We also offer high-quality carriers that slide smoothly and easily through the track, making the curtains very easy to open and close. To allow for an even easier bathing experience, our master carriers and wands can make the opening and closing of the shower curtain simple, even if the adult is sitting on a shower chair. We even have wands with circular handles that meet the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (please call to order).


If you are starting this home project, give us a call. We are here to help!
