Nose Filters

I've had some new customers point out that they weren't provided with a nose filter when getting their spray tan in other locations and was curious to know how many technicians here do provide their clients with a nose filter.

Re: Nose Filters

I provide them as part as the service along with sticky feet, disposable undergarments, etc. but most people don't want to use them....

Do you make it mandatory that they must be worn? I am thinking about going this route.

Re: Nose Filters

Nose plugs have been mandatory at our salon since we started offering the service 5 years ago. Protect the clients mucas membranes and follow FDA guidelines.

Re: Nose Filters

eileen where do you get yours from? The last ones I ordered did not have the cotton in them and I did not feel they were able to protect.

Re: Nose Filters

Eileen, I like this. If a client refuses to wear do you refuse to spray them?

Re: Nose Filters

Norvell has the best nose filters. If you tell the client they are mandatory they don't refuse.
We also include iprotect lip balm, winkese, hair covers and disposable undergarments.

Re: Nose Filters

Norvell has taken the cotton out too I heard. Nose filters have to have cotton.

Re: Nose Filters

Norvell is using a sponge type. Where are you getting your information that you need cotton?? The other type I've used since day one are sponge types as well. I will get photos.
