Lots of folks have been asking me for more information on providing mobile services! As I buzz around LA bringing people beauty, here is what I can share with you…
1. Be a Minimalist
Know your clients needs prior to appointment and bring just what you need. You’d be surprised how tiny a set up it is this way. Planning and packing your bag well is key.
2. Forget the Massage Table
Don’t strain your body carrying a massage table. In a salon it’s about the client chair. House calls are about the artist chair. Almost everyone has a bed and some people have massage tables in their house! Find a lightweight set up and you can eyelash anywhere when you get creative with your environment.
The chair I use is a pilates apparatus that is much easier to carry than a massage bed. It comes with three height options.
3. Get Your Lighting Right
Lights are so important! This baby, by Glamcor, is lightweight and super easy to carry in a shoulder bag if you need to bring a chair in with you.
4. Have a Location Strategy
Don’t drive all over town. Book smart! Location strategy promotes standing appointments in the lives of clients. In LA, the next town over feels like driving to a different state. I recommend staying organized and planning ahead to coordinate your peace.
5. Be Safe
Know who you are going to see. My preference is to only take referrals from people I already know. I also make sure someone knows where I am at all times by using the location friend feature on my iPhone. House calling rocks, but be smart!
Do you provide mobile services? It’s a whole different ball game than when clients come to you. I would love to continue exploring this topic with you. Leave your questions for me below and I will follow up! Till next time 😉
