Waxing Poetic How to Succed in a Down Market

How is your waxing business?  Do you have a waxing business?  Well why not?  There is more to life than plucking or shaving at home.  I found this great article about New York waxing bar that is using some great marketing to create business.  Here is the link to the article New York Times "Where wax is queen"

The Boom Boom Brow Bar was opened in 2008 by Malynda Vigliotti in the middle of our financial crisis.
She realized that to set herself apart she was going to need clever marketing.  She quickly came up with her first discount slogan "The Bare Sterns" bikini wax down from $49 to $30.
That kind of humor and wit has set her apart from the crowd.  She still holds great discounts in her west village shop and will have customers standing in line out front of the 250 square foot space.   Its a great article so give it a read.

Paris Hilton couter sues over wearing someone else hair

If you remember that a while back we blogged that Paris Hilton was being sued by Hairtech for breach of contract, well we have a update for you.  Paris is now counter suing the company for 2.1 million in damages and 400,000 in attorney fees, plus 500,000 in declaratory relief.  Paris claims the company failed to pay her 1.7 million and that they secretly altered documents with her signature.  Along with counter suing the hair extension company, Paris denies she was unprofessional and claims the company's CEO Chris Volek wrote her an email praising her performance after she filmed a commercial for the company. According to gossip website TMZ, the email said "Hey Paris. I know it was a long day, but baby you 'Rocked.' Just from the takes I saw this is going to be one hellava commercial, you were genuinely amazing."  All this because she was seen wearing a competitor's hair piece which was probably used by her stylist, was unable to attend a Hairtech event because she was arrested for something or other.
Geez, you did hire Paris Hilton right?  What did they expect?

Tiger Woods bogies his way into the beauty business?

Well not exactly.  Tiger's one time mistress Loredana Jolie is opening up a beauty salon in New York.  The former Playboy playmate has written a tell all book and will now own a salon in a neighborhood on the upper east side called .....wait for it....Tigress.  Women will probably come from miles around to have their mane coiffed in Loredana's salon.  Hopefully patrons will get a glimpse of the beauty putt ering  around the shop.
