Beauty experiences – how to use Vanity Van to wow your customers

1024 576 Vanity Van

With mothers day fast approaching we have busy weekend creating innovative beauty experiences for a few of our retail and brand clients helping to say a big warm thank you to their valued customers.

H&M Beauty Tour nail treatments beauty experiencesWhat do customers really want?

They want recognition, they want to feel valued by your brand. One of the easiest ways to achieve this impact is to create an experience to draw over the customers to your activation, entice them in and then make them feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Beauty experiences are an amazing way to do this. As a brand you get the chance to personally connect with each individual who takes part in the activity building rapport and gratitude for the pampering. As a captive audience, your guests can learn about new products or the aims of your campaign in comfort. You can even dig deeper and use this connection time to ask their opinions, probe them about their likes and dislikes, find out what makes them tick.

airstream shopping centre beauty experiencesBuild it and they will come

Its important that you use the right surroundings to create this vibe. For indoor events and activities, we can create a whole impactive glamourous salon experience or a relaxing spa vibe. We are experts in pulling together bespoke looks for different themes or to work with your brand.

For large indoor events and outdoor shopping centres you need something with the WOW factor that will stand out, capture attention and draw the crowds. A double decker bus or a stunning airstream salon will do the trick and are super popular with our clients.

Branded buses are great for height for long distances and to send a message far and wide. They also have the room for bigger teams and more space customers to engage. But the airstreams are the most popular – iconic, eye-catching and kitsch they are a show stopper in terms of the crowds – especially our 1950’s themed unit – shes a beauty and always the centre of attention at events.

Vanity Van double decker bus beauty experiences

What kind of treatments should you use?

The key with these activations is high turnover but high impact. So we normally opt for express treatments tailored to suit the activations aims and the end customer. So for example for a Lynx activation in Gatwick we created a male barbering station with express moustache and beard trims, dry shaves and male haircuts. This weekend we are doing a few mothers day activities so we are focusing on express hairstyling, makeovers, manicures, brows and massages. For other events such as the Betty.Me campaign which were in a girls guide festival we conducted high speed glittering on hundreds of young girls as thats what suited the surroundings, enabled us to treat hundreds of girls and they loved it.

 

festival make up beauty experiencesTo give it that extra edge we can create special bespoke activities. For a campaign for Barbados at Westfield shopping centre who wanted to attract families, we designed bespoke firework face art carnival style for kids. For Oath we designed special nail art. For an American football tournament, we designed and printed bespoke tattoos. We LOVE to be creative – just give us some basic aims of the campaign and we will fire over a load of ideas bespoke to your requirements and incorporating the latest trends. Check our further case studies here for in-store activations, Shopping centres and brand campaigns

massage benefits

Why choose massage for your next event?

1024 671 Vanity Van

massage benefits

We’ve all have those days when all we need is a relaxing massage to take the stresses and strains of the day away. Whatever the reason whether its due to injury, joint or muscular pain, or even just the day-to-day rigours of daily life taking their toll, massage is widely recognised as an effective alternative therapy that many of us turn to. However what do we really know of this technique in which we put so much trust?

What is massage?
Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the benefit of the client. Techniques and benefits can vary widely and our therapists often use a combination of techniques always tailoring the experience to suit the problem areas and likes and dislikes of the client.
Good massage techniques administered by a trained and qualified practitioner can be extremely beneficial for a multitude of mental and physical ailments.

Benefits to the mind…
massage benefitsMassage has been proven to be a fantastic treatment for stress and anxiety. The application of massage techniques releases endorphins and reduces stress inducing hormones, resulting in a state of mental relaxation and calm. Insomnia sufferers particularly may benefit due to the reduction in stress and increased mental clarity.

Benefits to the body…
A professional and experienced massage therapist will be able to address a number of physical issues with the application of pressure and massage techniques. Elongation and manipulation of the muscles, breaking down adhesions, address alignment and increasing blood flow to the tissues will assist in releasing muscle tension and pain, joint stiffness, and by default, posture.

And there’s more…
Even digestive and immune system issues can be assisted by the use of massage techniques. The increase in circulation and lymphatic drainage, along with the lowering of stress inducing hormones, assist the body’s natural digestive and immune systems to function more efficiently.

festival face and body gems

Festival face and body gems get the latest look

1024 1024 Vanity Van

This summer is playing host to a variety of festival trends, but taking centre stage, is a face and body gems look which brings a whole new meaning to ‘getting stoned in a field’ ….

festival face and body gems
Gems are everywhere this season and we are obsessed with the face & body designs we have been witnessing so far! Fancy foreheads, dazzling décolletage, blingy bottoms and disco-tits galore! Paired with a healthy dose of glitter, body jewels are sweeping the festival fields and we are on hand to share our top tips on how to achieve the look.

For the beginners amongst you, fear not, several companies including our friends over at The Festival Faces Group, have developed self-adhesive, all in one designs which you can just peel-and-stick and you’re good to go. However, if you feel adventurous, individual stones and a dab of body or eyelash glue can be used to create your own creations which are only limited by your own creativity.festival face and body gems

Always start with clean and dry skin, apply your gems to your face or body with a dab of glue (please ensure this is suitable for use on the skin – eyelash glue is a great option) and allow to dry. Once your gems are in place you can then add fine and chunky glitter around them for the ultimate festival look. Take a flat brush and hair gel, apply to the skin surrounding your gems and sprinkle glitter with reckless abandon until your dazzling look is complete…but remember, more is most definitely more when it comes to glitter!

If you would like to bring this dazzling look to your upcoming event, contact one of our fabulous team at info@vanityvan.co.uk for more information.

Male grooming wet shave

Fathers Day

683 1024 Vanity Van

 

fathers day male groomingIt’s about that time of year folks! Time to make a fuss of the Dads, Grandads, Step-Dads, and any other significant men in our lives.

Father’s Day is fast approaching and let’s be honest, it really doesn’t get the same level of hype as Mother’s Day! Now, we know Mums are super special, but then so are Dads…which is why, here at Vanity Van, we strive to make sure we offer a full range of treatments to men as well as women…because, why not! Men deserve a little bit of a pamper too, and we are happy to oblige with some hints and tips of how you can spoil your man with some tailored male grooming.

 

Beard and Moustache care and maintenance

Whilst the 90’s and 00’s offered up a plethora of cleanly shaven men, seeming to defy ageing and maintaining the facial appearance of an 11-year-old boy at all times… the 2010’s saw the rise of the hipster approach to facial-fuzz, and it isn’t going anywhere! Quality over quantity is key here. We have seen a huge surge of popularity in beard and moustache maintenance, keeping facial-topiary tidy and groomed thereby avoiding the ‘homeless chic’ look that is to be avoided…. Your local barber will be able to offer you a full range of trimming and grooming treatments, along with recommendations of moisturising and conditioning oils.

male grooming hot towel experience facialCut Throat Shave

The principle method of shaving since its introduction in 1680, straight razors somewhat faded into obscurity in the mid-20th century once the electric razor and safety razor made an appearance. However, since the early 2010’s, the cut throat shave has been making somewhat of a resurgence, now considered to be the pinnacle of class and status. We highly recommend a wet-shave with traditional cut-throat razor blades, which, when combined with an invigorating hot towel treatment and nourishing moisturisers and oils, makes for the perfect treat for any gentleman.

Skin Care

With the abundance of skin-care products now available, specifically formulated for men, there is no longer any excuse whatsoever for neglecting facial-skin-care routines (nor stealing a dollop or five of your girlfriend’s beloved – and ridiculously overpriced – products). We recommend the full shebang of scrubs, facial wash, cleanser, toner, and moisturiser. However, your own preferences and indeed skin-type will dictate more closely as to which ranges and products are most suitable for you….and if in doubt, ask!

Male grooming wet shave

Here at Vanity Van, we offer these male grooming treatments and more, within our event packages, so pop us an email at info@vanityvan.co.uk to chat with one of our fantastic team about how VV can bring male grooming treatments to your upcoming event.
