Lets face it we all lead such busy lives we work long and hard hours, we run around after the kids and cleaning chores are never ending, so some well deserved time of pampering at the salon is something of a must to relax and unwind after a stressful week. But with so many beauty salons on the high street offering everything from fish nibbling at your feet pedicures to the latest anti aging Photo rejuvenation treatments, how can you tell a good professional salon offering high standards of service, professional therapist along with the best treatments from the crowd of salons on every high street.
I, myself have been known to enjoy the odd beauty treatment but being in the industry for many years has helped me to avoid orange tans and dodgy treatments that can happen in some salons. I often get told by my clients cringe worthy stories so I have decided to give you a few top tips for finding that professional therapist whether it be for that relaxing facial of beauty treatments for the big day.
There are a few ways to find that great therapist or salon is firstly by word of mouth I often am approached by friends of my clients that have indulged in treatments with me especially my Lash perfect eyelash extensions and they have been recommended to me.
The second, is the salon or therapist a member of an association as good salons are generally members of associations such as BABTAC or The beauty Guild these companies only insure fully qualified beauty therapists, also a good therapist should always do a written consultation even for a eyebrow wax, this checks if you have any contra-indications to the treatment, allergies and ensures that the treatment meets your expectations.
And last but not least in my honest opinion its knowledge a good beauty therapist should have a good knowledge, my clients often ask my opinion on things like millia on the skin surface and why has it occurred or what I think about new treatments that have been in the press, so a therapist that has little knowledge when asked about other treatments properly isn’t the best choice for that microdermabrasion treatment.
So ladies to get the best treatments at the best salons, by far a little planning goes a long way.
