With a marked improvement in recent years, beauty salons now offer more products, services and lifestyle options for their customers. Increasing awareness of the harmful effects that the environment and stress can have on the body has produced a demand for beauty salons and salon treatments to offer a greater range of services as well as complementary products. So our aim here is to help answer any questions you may have.
Beauty salons that were once the destination for a basic cut, colour or nail polish, now offer more elaborate treatments previously only found in health spa retreats. The range of services on offer tends to vary as much as current pricing, though local day spas are a more cost effective option than "destination" ones.
When determining affordability and the quality of service, comparison shopping is essential. Industry guidelines suggest that beauty salons should offer: a wide range of services, a relaxing environment, competitive prices, and most importantly qualified therapists. Though a visit to a beauty salon should be a calming, stress-free one, many find the experience intimidating as they are overwhelmed by: the choice of services, not knowing what to expect, how to behave, or how much to tip.
There is an abundance of resources out there to aid your research. Pick up a magazine, go to your nearest library, poll your friends, or search the internet for tips and advice.
By booking a consultation with a therapist, you can determine in-person where you would like to invest your time and money. If you want to update your look, but are uncertain as to which style best suits you, a consultation is the ideal setting to consider the options and advice of a professional. Alternatively, if you know what the look is that you are trying to achieve, a consultation will allow you to discuss your options with the therapist. If you've been inspired by a picture in a magazine, bring it along. The more specific you are, the clearer picture you will paint for the person helping you to achieve your look. A qualified therapist should be able to translate your ideas into reality.
