Foot hygiene is very important though many people generally ignore this. Yes, you can wash your feet, but you might not wash between the toes and trim the nails properly. A professional will carefully trim your nails, clean your feet, and remove any bacteria or germs present with specialized soaks and solutions. This drastically decreases the likelihood of infections and foot problems.
Not Curing Well
This is one of the most common mistakes made by nail technicians. Whether you’re applying acrylic nails or gel nails, proper curing is a must. If you don’t do that, there’s a high chance of infection. The most common mistake is of adding more monomer to the acrylic nail mixture and not curing the gel nails under the UV or LED lights well.
Your first priority is to understand whether your business would benefit from having pedicure chairs. Are you a beauty salon but want to offer full range of spa benefits? Have your clients’ been asking about pedicure treatments? If that’s the case, your business would benefit from pedicure chairs. You can assess this by conducting a survey. Ask your clients whether they would like you to add pedicure to your list of services. If they do, you know that pedicure is a viable option for you and you should use it in your business. However, if most of your clients don’t respond positively, you don’t need to install the chairs at all.
There are several articles published online about the health problems caused by pedicures. Most of these can be traced back to a lack of hygiene. Clients are now extra careful about the spa or salon they choose. They don’t want to contract infections but they want to get a pedicure and relax. With that in mind, most of them would visit a salon that has new pedicure chairs than those that have very old ones. They rightfully believe that the risk of infections and other such problems is higher in older chairs.
Consider your Establishment
The first thing you need to do is consider the space available in your spa. Your establishment might get very busy at times and you’ll want to maintain a good flow of movement in the spa. If pedicure chairs disrupt that flow of movement and take up space you don’t have, it wouldn’t do your spa any favors.
Educate your Clients
Even before winter starts approaching, start educating your clients on the winter hand and feet care. Most clients will be content to ignore their hands and feet during the winter, but it’s in this season that they need the most care. You can let them know that manicures and pedicures are essential during the winter season because their hand and feet need more hydration. The cuticles can become dry and the heels can become hard and develop cracks. Let them know that winter isn’t gentle on their hands and feet.
While a professional will pamper your feet and allow you to relax, you can do a pedicure at home. You don’t even need to purchase expensive foot creams and scrubs. Here’s what you can do.
a salon is a wonderful way to beautify your skin, your feet, your hair,
and to release stress that builds up like a poison inside the body. It
reinforces the individual belief that you are good and are worthy of
attention to feel and look your best. You deserve it because you work
hard, you take care of your loved ones, you give of yourself to others,
and it’s one of the ways you can work on improving yourself on the
outside and on the inside.
This is especially vital when you’re new to the business and want to attract customers. Regular spa customers know that good décor doesn’t always lead to good performance but no one can argue that it’s an excellent bait to get customers to walk in. The customers might walk in on the basis of a good décor, but they’ll stay if your services are equally great. The décor, in this case, doesn’t need to be elaborate or fancy, just clean, sleek, and comforting.
