There is no doubt that having your nails done or getting a relaxing massage is an extremely therapeutic experience. But just like anything else, getting a spa treatment requires some etiquette. So to make your salon and spa experience a lot more relaxing, here is the ultimate guide:
1. Arrive early
Arrive 15 minutes early for your spa appointment, as you have to fill out forms and change clothes. And arrive 10 minutes before a hair appointment, as you might require time for consultation.
2. Communicate clearly
Articulate your preferences beforehand. By doing so, you will help your aesthetician to find out what you really want. Apart from that during the course of a treatment, avoid talking and relax.
3. Take a shower before going for a wax
Especially in the case of a Brazilian or Bikini wax, this tactic will ensure a basic level of hygiene.
4. Don’t visit a salon if you are sick
When you are ill or have a bad cold, avoid going to the salon, as you could pass infections to other people who are there.
5. Switch off your phone
Since the basic idea of spa is to unwind and relax, the vibe can be ruined by even a vibrating handset.
6. Tip correctly
Ideally, a standard tip is 15% of the cost of your services, but if you had an amazing experience, then you can show your gratitude by giving a 20% tip. Moreover, if you have received any complimentary service, it’s great to show appreciation by tipping them more.
