New Designs!

Its been a while since we posted and there have been big changes at La Beeby! We are looking forward to a busy Summer with student orders already heading out the door and plenty more to come!

We are on the verge of launching our new collection and we have a lot to show you! Look out for new styles on the website over the next few weeks. As well as new designs we have lots of offers on discontinued lines and we really need to make some space in our warehouse, please help us out by snapping up some of our fabulous designs at a brilliant price.

Have a great week.

Higher Prices = More Customers?

Can it be true?

We found this article from Professional Beauty really interesting and encouraging as it reports that clients are willing to pay more for a better service, especially when it comes to beauty therapy. This is great news for our industry as we know that our therapists care about giving their clients the best service and sometimes that means charging more.

When it comes to uniforms we are always concerned with maintaining the balance between quality and affordability and it is a very fine line. We don’t claim to offer the cheapest uniforms but we are proud when we see our uniforms still looking great years after they were bought! We stick to a few golden rules, our uniforms are produced from our own bespoke fabric and each batch is tested to ensure it is the highest quality, all our uniforms have mitred seams to reduce splitting and fraying and we have a no quibble returns policy if something goes wrong.

The cheapest isn’t always the best option – we think value for money is the secret to success. We’d love to hear your thoughts so please leave your comments below.

We hope you have a busy and profitable week!

Dressing for the Season?

Hi Everyone,

Its been a busy few weeks at La Beeby towers, as we pass the halfway point in 2015 we are already looking to next year and are finalising plans for the new collection due in February 2016.

Although the time is flying by we are still appreciating the warm weather (although it isn’t very warm today!) We are always asked about how to keep cool when working in a hot salon environment and there is some advice we can give. Although polyester has come a long way and is far more comfortable and breathable than it used to be, it is still not as comfortable as cotton or silk. To keep as cool as possible we would advise wearing a lighter colour, Vogue also recommended this in their Summer Style guide.

As well as going lighter and brighter we also advise that you look at your uniform options, if you wear tunic and trousers you will see a difference if you try a dress, skirt or crop trouser instead. For those who aren’t comfortable wearing a bare leg a three quarter length tunic with cotton leggings can be an alternative.

Colleges, Colleges, Colleges!

Hi Everyone,

This week we have been busy getting our students ready for the world skills competitions by supplying them with pristine new uniforms. We have heard of students competing as far afield as Brazil and we wish you all lots of luck!

We have also been busy attending awards ceremonies to recognise students performance and last week we sponsored an award at London College of Beauty. We’ve been proud to work with the college for two years and love getting involved in their events. Below is a picture of our regional sales manager Michele with students and staff from the college.

Over the next few weeks we will be attending lots of open days to showcase the uniforms and give advice on sizing for students will starting their courses in September. We hope to see some of you there!

We hope you all have a great week.

Grey Goddess

This week we are thinking about grey…. its been the topic of one of the most anticipated films this decade and its a popular choice for the Spring season.

We love grey because it can be understated whilst also looking great with a pop of colour, grey and fuchsia make a striking combination but you can also team it with white for a fresher look. Below are just a selection of the grey uniforms available at www.labeeby.co.uk. Accessorise with a belt or coloured fob watch to add your own twist.

Nautical but nice!

Hi Everyone,

As the Spring/Summer fashions start to come through we’ve noticed a definite nautical theme with lots of navy and stripes on the high street. Make your uniform work in with the latest trends by teaming navy and white together through accessories or block colours.

The Mimi dress is great for a smart look and is available in this seasons smartest colour, or opt for a change by teaming a navy tunic with a white belt. If you want to go for a bigger impact lift the navy by wearing it with white trousers, crops or skirt for a fresh look.

We Need Your Help!

Hi Everyone,

We’ve been really busy this week looking at the next range and considering new styles and colours for Autumn 2015. We’d love to hear what you think of the latest collection so please take our survey by following the link below.

Complete our short online survey here.

We are focusing our attention on the new additions to our dress range and we love the sculpted shape of this gorgeous dress. We won’t be creating a design quite as fitted (we believe that therapists like to be able to breathe while they work!) but we are looking at structured shapes that flatter the figure. Who says a uniform has to be boring!

As always any ideas about colours, designs and general feedback are always welcome, please email amy@labeeby.co.uk with anything you have to offer.

As we are starting to see a glimmer of sunshine this week our attention is turning to our Spring wardrobe. Don’t forget your uniform when thinking about the warmer weather, there are options that are available for warmer days such as dresses, crops and skirts. We also recommend white trousers with a brighter tunic, this lifts the colour, is cooler than wearing darker colours and can really get you and your clients in the mood for some sunshine!

Visit our website to see the entire collection.

Show Stoppers!

Hi Everyone,

We have had a very busy couple of weeks since our last post! We attended the Professional Beauty show at Excel and were overwhelmed by the response and lovely comments about our latest collection. We love seeing you all at the shows and hearing your opinions about the designs and fabric. We were very busy and all had aching feet by the time we had finished!

After the busy show season we have turned our attention back to our new collection due to launch in September 2015. We love this dress with the zip detail to give it an edge. We get really excited about new designs and love your input, if you have any ideas please let us know via our Facebook or Twitter pages.

Hope you all have a busy and successful week :)
