It’s been an amazingly rewarding week after my conferences at the latest edition of Cosmobelleza 2013. An enriching experience in which, accompanied by my team, we gave two talks and workshops on the trends in the beauty and wellness sector. In my conferences I was able to share some of the knowledge I have acquired after seven years leading The Pink Peony. I am especially proud of having done my first talk in Spanish at such an important fair and representing Barcelona.
Nails, latest trends and strategies to grow your business
The first conference, on Saturday February 2nd, was on the nail and manicure sector, and its latest trends. After my intervention Kathleen, Geleen and Gemma from The Pink Peony hosted a practical workshop on nail art and Hilot massage. This is an ancient healing technique originally from the Philippines that relax muscles in depth. I am happy to say that we have now incorporated this massage to the full manicure service at The Pink Peony. In a next post I will further expand on this wonderful massage technique.
Threading, an exotic and effective hair removal method
My second contribution to the salon Cosmobelleza was a presentation on Threading, a long lasting and incredibly effective hair removal technique which originates from the Arab and Southeast Asian cultures. Following my more theoretical talk, Kathtleen offered a practical workshop where she skillfully showed the effectiveness of Threading as an alternative to waxing and other hair removal methods.
Threading is one of the services that we offer at The Pink Peony and I am very happy to see that it is generating a lot of interest. At Cosmobelleza we were honored to have participants to our workshop that came not only from Barcelona but also from Murcia, Pamplona, Andorra, Russia and Switzerland. From here I want to thank you all for your interest, in the near future I will expand further on how to perform this technique as at The Pink Peony we will be imparting courses and provide teaching materials.
