AN INTERVIEW WITH OUR FIRST EVER PROVIDERS

By | Beauty, Fitness, Home, Massage | No Comments

First we have Laura, she offers her services in Zurich City and the surrounding area as well as Canton Aargau.

1. How long have you been working with Glow?
I joined 2 years come September. Since the beginning.

2. What’s your favourite thing about working with Glow
I can add my own schedule and choose when I want to work. If my plans change then I just update my availability.

3. What convinced you to join?
I always wanted to work in the beauty industry and this way I can be flexible with my hours and not always being in one place. It’s nice to travel around to different clients instead of sitting in a salon.

4. What’s your most popular treatment?
I think nails, in particular pedicures, I have this great product from Lovaskin which the clients love, it removes all the dead skin in literally 60 seconds.

5. Is there any advice you would give to anyone thinking of working with Glow? 
Add as much availability as possible, you can always take it out if your plans change, no one can book you if you’re not available online. Especially at the beginning it’s good to be seen and then you get some clients who become regulars. A lot of my clients are referrals from other clients.

Andrei also joined us at the very beginning, he works in Zurich Canton, the Eastern part of Canton Aargau and the southern part of Canton Schwyz

1. How long have you been working with Glow?
I started my work with Glow from the beginning, good start, good opportunity to build on my set of skills.

2. What’s your favourite thing about working with Glow
The concept of the company, it’s great that it’s so flexible, and the people I work with.

3. What convinced you to join?
Your online platform attracted me the most. I can take advantage of having an online presence without having to pay for my own website.

4. What’s your most popular treatment?
I don’t have a most popular treatment because all the treatments I do are personalized to each client

5. Is there any advice you would give to anyone thinking of working with Glow? 
If you put passion in your work you will succeed. Be available, be willing to go that extra mile for your clients.

1. MANicure – Don’t neglect those cuticles gentlemen. Well-groomed hands are an absolute must, whether at a business meeting or a date.

2. Back Wax – Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not there, get that rid of that fluff before you head to the badi, lake or beach.!

3. Facial – Once our clients have had one of Andrei’s facials, they always book more! You have to experience it for yourself.

4. Personal Training – Summer is already upon us and we’ve been overindulging during lockdown. Book a personal training session to get back on track and work on that six pack you have always wanted. No excuses!

5. Pedicure – No one likes looking at neglected feet. NO ONE. So please book one of our pedicures before you take out your flip-flops.

Enjoy those beautiful summer days!

1. MANiküre – Vernachlässigt eure Nagelhaut nicht, meine Herren. Gepflegte Hände sind ein absolutes Muss, ob bei einem Geschäftstermin oder einem Date.

2. Rückenwaxing – Nur weil ihr sie nicht sehen könnt, heisst es nicht, dass die Haare nicht da sind. Entfernt den Pelz bevor ihr in die Badi, an den See oder an den Strand geht.

3. Gesichtsbehandlung – Wenn unsere männlichen Kunden einmal eine von Andrejs Gesichtsbehandlungen gehabt haben, buchen sie immer wieder! Das müsst ihr mal selbst erlebt haben.

4. Personal Training – Der Sommer ist bereits in vollem Gange und wir haben uns während des Lockdowns eher wenig bewegt. Bucht also ein Personal Training, um wieder Fahrt aufzunehmen und an dem Sixpack zu arbeiten, das ihr schon immer wolltet. Es gibt keine Ausreden mehr

HOW TO GET BEACH READY WITHOUT LEAVING THE HOUSE

The borders are gradually opening again and you are finally allowed to start planning your summer holiday. You don’t have time to go to the salon with all the things you need to get done before going away? No need to worry,  WE COME TO YOU! Go to our website or app, simply put in your postcode, choose the date and provider you want and next thing you know they’ll be at your door ready to pamper you. This saves you the time you probably need for finishing all emails and packing your suitcase before you are finally ready to head to the airport. 

We asked our clients what their beauty routine is before getting on the plane. These are their top 5: 

1. Pedicure – number 1 on our clients’ holiday check list. Baby soft feet and perfectly painted toenails are a must! And guys, also your toenails have to look great in flipflops.

2. Manicure – goes hand in hand with your pre-holiday pedicure, matchy matchy or mix things up with ombre fingernails and neon toenails, you decide!

3. Wax – essential pre-holiday prep! Need we say more?! One of our specials is a back wax for men. And believe us, it doesn’t hurt as much as getting rejected by your summer crush because of a hairy back.

4. Facial – prepare your skin for you holiday, perfectly exfoliated skin is a must for all those make up free days on the beach. 

5. Hair Cut – a fresh cut is essential before the onslaught of salt and sand. 

And the best part? You don’t even have to leave the house and spend hours going to a salon. Have a look at our website or drop us an email if you have a question.

Enjoy your well-deserved summer holiday!

Ready für den Strand, ohne das Haus verlassen zu müssen

Die Grenzen öffnen sich allmählich wieder und du darfst endlich deinen Sommerurlaub planen. Du hast jedoch keine Zeit, um in den Salon zu gehen und all die Dinge zu erledigen, die man vor der Abreise noch typischerweise macht? Kein Grund zur Sorge, WIR KOMMEN ZU DIR! Geh einfach auf unsere Website oder App, gib deine Postleitzahl ein, wähle das gewünschte Datum und den Anbieter, und schon bald klingelt es an der Türe und du wirst verwöhnt. Das erspart dir wertvolle Zeit, die du wahrscheinlich gut brauchen kannst, um beispielsweise die letzten E-Mails zu beantworten und deine Koffer zu packen, bevor es endlich losgeht.

Wir haben unsere Kunden und Kundinnen gefragt, was ihre Beauty-Routine ist, bevor sie ins Flugzeug steigen. Das sind ihre Top 5: 

1. Pediküre – Nummer 1 auf der Urlaubscheckliste unserer Kund*innen. Weiche Füsse und perfekt lackierte Fussnägel sind ein Muss für alle Frauen! Und Männer, auch eure Zehennägel müssen in Flipflops gepflegt aussehen.

2. Maniküre – geht Hand in Hand mit der Pediküre vor dem Urlaub, ihr entscheidet, ob ihr die gleiche Nagellackfarbe oder eine coole Farbkombination möchtet. 

3. Waxing – unverzichtbar für die Urlaubsvorbereitung! Müssen wir noch mehr sagen?! Eines unserer Specials ist übrigens ein Rückenwaxing für Männer. Und Jungs glaubt uns, es tut nicht so sehr weh, wie ein Korb eures Sommerflirts wegen eines zu behaarten Rückens.

4. Gesichtsbehandlung – bereitet eure Haut auf den Urlaub vor! Ein Peeling ist perfekt, um die Make-up freie Zeit am Strand so richtig geniessen zu können. 

5. Haarschnitt – was gibt es besseres als einen frischen Haarschnitt, um eure Haare auf den Ansturm von Meersalz und Sand vorzubereiten? 

Und das Beste daran? Du musst nicht einmal das Haus verlassen und Stunden in einem Beauty-Salon verbringen. Geh einfach auf unsere Website oder schreib uns eine E-Mail, wenn du Fragen hast. Ach übrigens, wir bieten auch Personal Training an, wenn du deiner Bikini-Figur noch den letzten Schliff geben möchtest.

Geniesse deinen wohlverdienten Sommerurlaub!
