Wink-Ease Offers FREE Tanner’s Quiz to Help Educate Your Staff and Tanners!

Friday, June 2nd, 2017

June 2017 – EYE PRO, Inc., world leader in disposable eye protection for indoor tanning and makers of Ultra Gold WINK-EASE, Lash Room WINK-EASE and WINK-EASE Dark, is all about providing fun and easy eyewear information to you AND your tanners!

“Salon owners tell us all the time they have tanners who don’t believe in eye protection or feel they already ‘know it all’. That is why we offer salons our ‘Tanners Quiz’,” explained Brenda Fishbaugh, EYE PRO president. “Our ‘Tanner’s Quiz’ is a fun tool to use to ask your tanners a few questions or have them take the quick quiz to see what they really know,” Fishbaugh continued.

“We are constantly looking for fun and unique ways to support the salons and educate the tanners and staff alike on the importance of eye protection,” said Jackie DeWald, Office Manager. “A salon owner told us she covered up the answers to our quick Yes/No 10 question quiz and made copies for all of her staff.  She offered first pick of shifts to the employee that got the best score.  This really made her staff interested in learning the answers and helped show her staff why they needed to wear their own eye protection,” concluded DeWald.Some salons offer a free lotion packet or an extra hour off to the employee that does the best to get a little competition going.

To receive the EYE PRO “Tanners Quiz”, email WinkEase@WinkEase.com and salons will receive a download link for the EYE PRO website. The quiz can be printed for the salon to have handy when dealing with customers that may be challenging when it comes to eye protection.

OFFERING RED-LIGHT? STRESS EYEWEAR!

Thursday, June 1st, 2017

More and more tanning salons are adding red light therapy to their service menus. Since the units do not emit ultraviolet light, the law does not require users to wear eye protection. As you know, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires FDA-compliant eyewear to be worn during a session in any device that emits UV light – such as sunbeds and booths. The eyewear is expected to block light in the spectrum between 200-550nm (FDA 21 CFR 1040.20). Red light is a totally different spec- trum from UV, ranging from 600-670nm, with low-infrared stim light around 800nm.

If eyewear is not required, why wear it? Most red-light units emit incredibly bright light, and exposure to unprotected eyes is not advisable, even with eyelids closed. On Ergoline’s website, info on the Beauty Angel unit says, “The lamps in the Beauty Angel emit light primarily in the 600-700nm range.

Super Summer Tip: Push the Eyewear!

Monday, May 1st, 2017

Tanner traffic is starting to slow down, and selling those bottles of expensive lotion has gotten a lot more difficult since the rush to be golden for Spring Break and graduation is over. Kids are out of school and moms are too busy to tan – there are fewer guests to pitch your upgrade beds to … so, what do you do? Think about focusing on sales of smaller-ticket items this month, with the goal of selling more items to more tanners at a lower PCA. Let’s try pushing the lowly eyewear sale! Start with a baggie. Yep, go to the grocery store and spend $3 for 100 snack-sized zipper-seal plastic bags. When a guest walks in, offer her a complimentary baggie to keep her goggles in. Your guests will need to show you their eyewear before they are allowed to tan – do they even have eyewear? You’ll be able to explain how goggles get dirty in a girl’s purse or guy’s gym bag, and how a baggie keeps them clean. I like to suggest you also offer a rubber band to attach the baggie to their lotion bottle.

Make Eyewear Critical in Your Salon

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

For 26 years, I’ve been an industry advocate for wearing eye protection during all UV tanning sessions. Promoting the importance of using eye protection while tanning is my career – I’ve never branched out into lotions or other tanning products, because eye protection is too important to dilute my safety message. I’d like to tell you why eye protection is so critical to me and is critical to you and your salon.

I Just Secret-Shopped Your Salon!

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

In my 26 years in this industry, I’ve seen things over and over that ruin a salon’s professionalism. You may have great equipment and a great location; but if your beds have leftover lotion goo where someone swung their legs to get out of the bed (and hand prints on the top acrylic), I’m grossed out and not tanning with you – your salon is clearly NOT CLEAN! How many other things do you or your staff overlook?

As I approach your front door, I hate weeds and cigarette butts and dirty sidewalks. Does your door have fingerprints and old, peeling credit card stickers? Yuck! Along with homemade signs hung with scotch tape on the door and counter, it assures me you don’t run a clean or professional salon. It feels more like a gas station – not a place where I’d be comfortable lying down naked.
