Here are few useful makeup, style and beauty advice for a female restaurant manager

Being in management and being female can be a match made in heaven. That being said, you need to know how to use your femininity, as well as your position as a manager, in a way that will increase your value to the company you work for. Let’s take a look at a few tips and tricks based on latest Avon catalog to getting it ‘just right’ as a female restaurant manager.

Don’t Hide Your Femininity

One trap which many female managers, not just those who run restaurants, fall into, is feeling that they need to hide their femininity. It can be all too easy to think that being a female will somehow put you at a disadvantage as to how people view you. Do not allow yourself to be fooled into adopting this attitude. Your femininity is one of your strongest tools as a manager. How can you embrace this wonderful part of the individual who makes up you?

Your Style

Of course, depending on the restaurant which you work for, there may be a set dress code or general style which must be adhered to. However, if this is not the case, what type of style should you adopt?

In a few words, it is all about getting a balance. A dark trouser suit may seem like a good option, however, will this flatter your femininity? Now we are certainly not saying there is anything wrong with trouser suits here, why you will likely find some rather attractive choices in your local shops, but keep a feminine focus when you are making your choice.

Pastel colors prove ideal opinions for a female manager. In fact, combining a business style suit with a feminine pastel shade can help you nail that balance we were talking about earlier.

Your Beauty Look

How about your hair and makeup? Should you resemble a girls night out or a lazy Saturday morning? You don’t want to resemble either! Makeup and hair should be tasteful, yet attractive as displayed in the new Avon Catalog. Aim for a look that appeals to the eye, yet doesn’t attract undue attention or comment. The last thing you want is diners at the restaurant leaving with a bigger impression of your make-up look than the well-prepared food they enjoyed!

Now that we have a clearer understanding of the importance of allowing our femininity to shine through in a restaurant manager role, it is time to turn our attention to another essential aspect of getting it ‘just right’.

Remember You’re Going To Be On Your Feet!

Being a restaurant manager isn’t just about looking feminine and pretty, it involves a lot of hard work too. Hobbling across the restaurant floor in a pair of killer heels and needing to run to the ladies every ten minutes to check your intricate hair-do isn’t going to leave a good impression with diners. Let’s have a look at what you need to do.

Your Style

Opt for an outfit that matches our description above, yet is comfortable to wear and doesn’t crease easily. This may require a little time and effort in the changing rooms to find an outfit that ticks both boxes.

Your Beauty Look

According to the new Avon Catalog, opt for make up that is long wearing, this will avoid the need to continually check yourself to ensure you still look presentable. Also, since a restaurant manager is constantly around food, long hair should be styled away from your face in an attractive, yet professional style.

Certainly, being a female restaurant manager is a great role to enjoy. Getting your style and beauty look ‘just right’ doesn’t need to be too difficult a task. By following these tips and tricks from the new beauty catalog above you should be well on your way to looking the part.

A Basic Guide To Running A Pub

Useful Tips on How to Run a Pub

There are a lot of people who want to own a pub, but it is important that you know how to run a pub. If you are unable to run your bar or restaurant correctly you will find yourself in financial problems very quickly. There are many different points that you need to consider when looking at running a pub.

Know The Financial Implications

Before you look at actually running a pub you need to know all of the financial implications. One of the financial implications that you need to consider is the lease agreement for the pub. These agreements are 5 years and will be subject to the Retail Prices Index. If your pub is in trouble breaking your lease could result in fees and having to pay out the remainder of the lease.

Some of the ongoing financial implications that you need to consider are the raw products including food and drinks, the utilities, marketing costs, staff costs and business costs such as an accountant. You will also need to consider the costs of training your employees. Knowing these costs will help you determine what your profit margins will be and how you should price your products.

The Legal Compliance

Before you pub can open you need to pass certain legal requirements and acquire the correct licenses. The licensing requirements may vary depending on the location of the pub, but failure to comply with them could lead to your pub being closed down. There are four objectives that all regulations will cover, and they are the prevention of crime or disorder, public safety, the prevention of public nuisance and the protection of children from harm.

To run a pub, you will also need to have a liquor license which allows you to legally sell alcohol in your restaurant bar. If you do not have a permit, you are not legally authorized to sell alcohol. Selling alcohol without a license could lead to fines or the closure of your business.

Having A Business Plan

Once you understand the financial and legal obligations of how to run a pub you need to set up a business plan. Your business plan should outline what you hope to happen with the pub and any further business development that you will look at. Your marketing strategy should also be included in the business plan.

In your business plan, you should set specific and realistic goals for your business. It is important that these goals are measurable which helps you keep track of your progress. Being as detailed as possible in the goals will also help you determine if anything needs to change at a later date.

Staff Management And Training

To successfully run a pub you not only need to comply with regulations and understand the financial implications, but you will also need to know how to manage your staff. When you get your staffing right, you can drastically reduce the stress of running a business. To get the best results from your team, you need to plan how you are going to manage them.

One of the most important parts of your staff planning should be the training you have. You need to carefully think about the type of training that you need to provide and if there is any ongoing training that you need to provide. There are certain parts of the training that you will have more control over than others, and you need to plan this out in advance.

It is also possible to hire a third party training company to help you cover the training that you are unable to provide yourself. Health and safety and first aid training should be outsourced along with food safety and customer service.

Having Good Stock Control

One of the keys to success when running a pub is having good stock control. If you are unable to correctly control your inventory levels, you may find yourself running out of food or drink and inconvenient times. There are some systems that you can use to help with stock control, and you need to consider this.

Most electronic point of sale systems will have a stock control system built in. These systems will deduct items that you have sold from the stock that you currently have and alert you when the stock levels reach a preset low level.
