"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"

Nicola Atkins, owner of the Multi-Award Winning Utopia Beauty Salon, Oxfordshire talks about the importance of embracing the festive season.

"Christmas is the perfect time of year for retailing and topping up your salon's takings with extra income."

- Get ready in November - The earlier you start the better in order to catch the Christmas trade. Whilst I would not think about Christmas decorations at home until December, we have realised that many people like to start shopping early, and so the festivities begin in early November for us. The salon windows are dressed for Christmas and we bring out our seasonal stock, like Stocking Fillers and Gift Sets.

- Let your Windows dazzle - It's important to us that people walk past and realise we are not just a salon, and that anyone is welcome to walk in and purchase gifts as they would in a shop. A fantastic window display is imperative for catching people's attention as they walk past. Fairy lights are perfect to catch the eye and to illuminate the salon even after closing.

- Displaying your products - Our retail space is within our reception and waiting area, making it an ideal place for clients to browse whilst they are waiting for their treatment. Signs highlighting 'hot spots' and specific gifts help draw attention to the products, whilst the new trends of Light Boxes are great to help catch the eye and highlight your display areas. Those smaller stocking fillers, like Faby's Fitness Oil Pen work perfectly placed at the till point as many clients will purchase these on the spot!

- Special Offers - I find that add-ons work better than discounts, so rather than offering a discounted service or product to drive more sales, we add extras onto their purchase so clients can get more for their money. For example a small gift or mini nail varnish a purchase of 2 or more gift sets."

It's not too late to get ready. Take a look at Faby's tempting range of Retail items here.

Don't forget if you purchase 5 Faby Mini Gift set, you get 1 Free of Charge!.
Bringing 'A taste of Italy' to Olympia Beauty
image51
It's been an exciting start to October with Faby making its trade show debut at this year's Olympia Beauty show London. The 2 day show was thriving with visitors interested in seeing and hearing all about our recently launched Italian brand.
One of our favourite things about going to the show is the opportunity to catch up with our valued customers and to meet so many new enthusiastic industry professionals.

We were thrilled to welcome the Faby family, Alberto and Alessandro Viale, from Faby Italia to join us on the stand. Alongside their key Faby Educator Michaela, the team injected some authentic Italian passion into the weekend, with VIP manicures and Prosecco drinks receptions.

The show was the perfect Launchpad for Faby's exciting new collections:
- A/W16 POSH Collection - The displays for the 12 new shades attracted a vast amount of attention, with people loving the Mini Kits perfect for retail! The HOT colour of the show was the warm iridescent orange shade 'Timeless'.
- M2 Manicure + Pedicure - Faby's luxury M2 product range, made from a synergy of Manuka Oil and Moringa Butter, was showcased with many VIP guests even enjoying a pamper session with the products.

Faby were also proud to be a sponsor of this year's Salon & Spa Owners club, working with the London College of Beauty Therapists to provide Faby manicures to all of their special guests.

And have you seen this month's issue of Scratch magazine? We are incredibly excited to have our first front page with Faby, along with a 4 page feature inside. Check it out to read more about the brand and how the stunning collections are created.

Overall it's been a fantastic show and we'd like to thank everyone who visited the stand and helped make the weekend a success in spreading the Faby love.

Faby at London Fashion Kick
Image48
Italian fashion nail brand Faby UK were thrilled to be a part of the exciting London Fashion Kick event last Saturday 18th June at the charming Hilton Double Tree Marble Arch.

The Food & Fashion event kicked off at midday with a captivating catwalk of 7 emerging international designers' collections. The limited edition pieces ranged from Swimwear by Paris to Shaeleena Nowbuth Couture to Louise Ferdinand Lingerie. The whole show was beautifully coordinated with live melodies created by British violinist Aelfwyn Shipton.

The exclusive guests were also treated to a specially created goody bag, which included their very own 'couture for their nails' in the form of Faby Nail Lacquer.

After the show, creativity was coupled with taste as the guests were treated to a tantalising menu by famous chef 'Enzo Oliveri'. Fashion and food professionals took the opportunity to mingle whilst sampling the vast selection of elegant canapes and dishes inspired by the flavours of Southern Italy.

Later in the afternoon the LFK 'Pop up Shop' was open, allowing the guests to get closer to fashion designs from the catwalk, as well as other Italian inspired brands like Faby nails. As a new brand to the UK, it was a fantastic opportunity for Faby to showcase their 'Fabylous' range of colours and nail treats, spreading a little JOY to Bloggers and Beauty professionals a like.

FABY makes its entrance at London Fashion Week
image44
On the same week that Faby nails launched in the UK, the brand made its debut onto the catwalk at London Fashion Week with designers APU JAN and Mother of Pearl.

Faby's fashion focus, excellent performance and exquisite range of shades charmed backstage, impressing industry professionals alike. A range of lacquer shades were considered for the models walking the runway but a real trend towards Nudes was clear for AW16.

The sweet and sheer pink shade Innocent Fantasy, was chosen by designer APU JAN to perfectly complement his fiction inspired deigns which include unique knitwear techniques. The subtle feminine Faby lacquer blended beautifully with the bold print patterns, adding to the designer's aura of 'a touch of casualness.'

Faby Nature shade 100% Cashmere was the lacquer of choice for designer Mother of Pearl. The natural feminine nude complimented the soft feminine sportswear and was a perfect contrast to the preppy floral designs.

Faby UK were thrilled to be a part of two fantastic shows and to have such talented nail technicians using and enjoing Faby:

"The formulas are really creamy and the whole system works well together and touch dries really quickly. I especially loved the Faby Drop Dry (who doesn't!)" Metta Francis - Session Tech, owner of NailsbyMets

"I'm such a fan, it's rare that you find Nudes that don't take more than a few coats to look good and never had so many models reluctant to take it off, 100% cashmere complements so many skin tones it's insane!!" - Kimberley Nkosi, Session Tech Nailista London

Faby Italia have also been in pole position at Milan Fashion Week this month, and talks have already started for Faby UK too join LFW September 2016.

Faby Training Peterborough

Last week we welcomed members of the lovely Faby Italy team to our home turf for a fun filled few days getting to grips with the Faby nails range.

The Palms Extra team learnt all about the Faby brand and ethos, including how they come up with the quirky names for their nail shades, like 'Marry me Robbie' and their inspiration behind the suggestive 'Faby Man Collection'. (Stay tuned for the answers!)

Over the course of the two days, Faby Educator Michaela demonstrated the application steps for Faby Lacquers, 'Faby Treat's' Treatments, and the Faby Lacquering Gel products. Our nail skills were then put to the test as we practised the art of the perfect Faby manicure!
We were delighted to showcase the stylish collections to Helena at Scratch Magazine, as well as providing her with an exclusive peek at the Faby Spring/Summer 2016 collection.

The team had a fantastic few days and had lots of terrific things to say:
"Great colour choices, good selection of corresponding Lacquers & Lacquering Gel. Exclusive, on trend and fresh."
"There is something for everyone with good retail opportunities."
"I love the Faby brand. I love the look of the Lacquers and Lacquering Gels."
"I like that, as a brand, they are fashion led, but I also admire how thoughtful they are towards the customer and the nail tech with regards the ingredients in the products that are being used."


We're incredibly excited to launch Faby nails to the UK market and pass on all of our Faby knowledge!
