Looking Back on 2022

2022 has been an amazing year for Studex, a year where we have worked hard to provide the best customer experience and a year where we have finally been able to get back to seeing our Piercing Partners face to face. 

We have attended some great trade events this year – Spring Fair, Professional Beauty, and Olympia Beauty to name but a few! 

It was our first time attending The UK Jewellery Festival, where we had a lovely time and enjoyed celebrating with our Piercing Partner F Hinds who won an Outstanding Contribution to the Industry Award.

Another standout moment from our events this year includes the amount we were able to raise for The Motor Neurone Disease Charity, a charity close to our hearts. We charged £10 per piercing at both Professional Beauty North and Olympia Beauty, raising a staggering £2650! All proceeds were donated to this amazing charity. 

This year has also seen us working with Claires to create some great training videos. We also celebrated National Piercing Day with them at an impressive event at their head office. 

We loved attending events that supported our Piercing Partners such as the Superdrug Christmas conference and Beauty Studio conference held earlier in the year. 

It has been great to catch up with some of our regional trainers in person this year and see them at events they attended with us. We have such a great team on board and are forever thankful for them!

We have worked hard to provide as much marketing support as possible for our Partners this year, with some of our favourites being the introduction of The Super Brave Calendars and Badges which have been a huge success. We have also introduced a Studex bunny and given our teddy bear a makeover. 

We arranged an aftercare shoot in April, to help our Partners promote the aftercare process ready for the summer holidays, as well as a super fun summer photoshoot capturing a sunny day out with a group of friends at the beach.

One of our favourite introductions this year were Studex’s Instagram GIF’s, to help make Instagram stories more fun and engaging. We love it when our Piercing Partners get in on the GIF action!

We hosted some different competitions, some exclusive to our trade show attendees, and our more recent Halloween competition. We love giving our customers the chance to win a range of gifts across the year and look forward to doing more of the same in 2023!

We took the opportunity to surprise our Partners on National Biscuit Day by putting biscuit gifts in with all our orders. On Teacher Appreciation Day we took the time to appreciate all our fantastic trainers – not just on this day of course, but every day of the year.

Thanks again to all our partners, suppliers, and everyone at Studex for another amazing year and we look forward to seeing you in 2023, with many more events planned in already.
