Seasonal Safety

I

t's the most wonderful time of the year, and I've been drinking
Starbucks seasonal lattes and listening to Christmas music since
before Thanksgiving-I just can't help myself! To me, and for many,
this is the season of giving a little extra, of being a bit kinder, smiling a
little bigger and hopefully letting go of some of our crabby behavior-and
the earlier I can get started on this, the better. Unfortunately, in this day
and age, we also need to be mindful of our surroundings-
because while we're spreading our holiday cheer and
ho-ho-ho-ing down the street, less savory characters
are using this time to be opportunistic.
From shoplifting to car break-ins, credit card
fraud to identity theft, there are countless
ways that we can be taken advantage of,
particularly when we have our guard down.
Not many people talk about this aspect
of the season simply because it doesn't
really "go" with holiday cheer. In fact,
it can be downright scary. While
statistics show that the holidays
don't necessarily bring higher
crime rates, people do tend to
be more vulnerable at this time
of year. That's because it's easy to
become distracted in the frenetic activity.
And unless you take the right precautions,
you may not notice a few bottles of polish slipping
into a purse or a $20 bill disappearing from the cash
drawer. It's imperative to protect our businesses, our

My Manicure
I can never get enough of pumpkin everything once fall
arrives. This year, my 3-year-old son helped promote my
proclivity to pumpkins with
his own obsession with
orange orbs-so much
so, he requested that I
put pumpkins on my nails.
So, I took my inspiration
from Katie Masters
(@nailthoughts) and handpainted a few accents on
my own nails!

clients and ourselves before something terrible happens. After all, there is
no worse PR than word spreading of credit card fraud at your salon. And
the last thing that you want after working your tail off in services and retail
sales is to find that you actually lost money due to theft.
This month we feature a really great and comprehensive article about
guarding yourself and your salon during the holiday season: Check out
"Safe and Sound" on page 49. Here, author Karie Frost takes you through
every scenario from break-ins to employee theft to hiring for the holidays
to protecting clients from the weather. While it's certainly not the most
exciting of topics, as I said before, it's still very important. I urge you to
take the time to read, plan and prepare. Thinking ahead and being aware is
much less of a headache than dealing with a serious crime or injury.
Of course, you can-and should!-still enjoy this busy time of year,
because it provides you the opportunity to spend extra time with your
favorite clients, establish new ones and even convince your die-hard
neutral-nail ladies to try a little holiday bling. Be sure to flip to page 58 to
read "Holiday Haul" and get some ideas to boost your retail area, and see
"Midnight Madness" on page 78 for some stellar New Year's nail looks.
Even with all the craziness (the wonderful craziness!), I hope you also
find the time to enjoy this lovely time of the year. Revel in the spirit of the
season, and I look forward to seeing you all in 2018.

Behind the Nail Pros...

I was introduced to Erika Bakos,
this month's cover artist, through
international competitor Emese
Koppányi-I love working my
connections! Without Emese, I
would have never been exposed
to Erika's amazing work, and I'm
so thrilled to have her talent highlighted for you all to see. Check
out more of her work in Behind
