Benefits of Manicures and Pedicures
Some of us think that getting a manicure and pedicure is a way of pampering yourself or a luxury. Well, that might be partly correct. Regular manicures and pedicures provide benefits for your overall health and well-being. Regular manicures also help keep your hands looking young.
Benefits of Manicures and Pedicures
Improve the health of your nails
Regular manicures and pedicures avoid the chances of your nails developing fungi and reduce the possibility of infections. The hands are exposed to the elements and products daily. It’s beneficial to have a deep cleaning to remove dead skin cells. This will encourage new cell growth and leave your nails healthier and stronger. (more…)
Is a Gel Polish Manicure for You?
For some, a traditional manicure is not all that appealing. Sitting for an hour to have your nails buffed, rubbed, filed, then piled high with acrylic just does not seem all that great to some. There is an alternative however and that is a gel manicure. So what is a gel manicure exactly?
Gel manicure is the use of a gel polish, top, base and color coat, that is used to help strengthen the nails and can last up to a week or more without chipping or cracking like traditional polish. The process starts much like a normal manicure with the nails being buffed, clipped, cleaned and shaped. The technician will then apply a base coat that is going to help the color adhere and is going to help the gel polish to set. (more…)

The Benefits of Using Nail Art to Flaunt Your Personality
Nail art can be used to express your personality to the world around you. You can make your own designs with some practice, but you can also get it done at the spa. Getting a manicure is fun and relaxing, and it makes you feel good about yourself. That’s because looking nice makes you feel happy too.
Hand care is important because your hands are one of the most visibly noticeable parts of you. You should keep your nails clipped and filed in your favorite shape to show off who you are. When you hand a cashier money in a store or shake someone’s hand at work, they will notice how well you have taken care of your hands. If you have nail art, your hands will be especially noticeable and you should expect to receive a lot of compliments. Even a simple multi-color striped pattern looks fantastic.

What Your Nails Say About You
Even if you have the most pristine makeup, gorgeous hair, and stunning clothes, if your fingernails and toenails aren’t on point, your whole look will suffer. The truth is that nail care should be an essential part of your beauty routine. Nails that are unshaped, dull-looking and marked by cuticles which haven’t been groomed in months are hard to go unnoticed.
Luckily, this can be helped with a simple manicure and pedicure at a day spa. Just like a striking dress or a unique hairstyle, getting a manicure and pedicure done regularly allows you to express yourself creatively by using your nails as your canvas. (more…)

Hands and Feet Paraffin Treatment
Spa treatments are important for taking care of your body, and you can transform a regular manicure into an amazing experience through the benefits offered by paraffin wax. While many people see this service offered at their day spa, they are often hesitant to try the new treatment because they do not know what it will involve. Yet, asking for a paraffin wax treatment at your next beauty spa appointment will provide you with the following benefits that will make it become one of your favorite parts of your beauty routine.
What Happens During the Procedure?
Paraffin wax is usually used during a manicure or pedicure as an additional treatment. Before the procedure, paraffin wax is heated to a comfortable temperature. Then, your hands and feet will be dipped into the wax, and it will be allowed to cool until it is solid. The wax is then removed once it has cooled. While the entire procedure only takes minutes, it leaves behind multiple benefits.
What Are the Benefits of Paraffin Wax Treatment?
This is one of the most popular spa treatments available because it promotes a sense of relaxation. Having your hands dipped into the warm wax is a sensory experience that generates feelings of positive well-being. The warm wax also offers therapeutic benefits during a pedicure such as removing dead skin as it is peeled away. The wax also helps to increase the skin’s ability to retain moisture, which leaves your hands and feet completely soft and smooth.
Touchable, soft skin is an immediate benefit of having a paraffin wax treatment done at your day spa. Yet, the benefits just continue as you enjoy the pampering feeling of spending a few minutes enveloping your skin in warmth. The softness also extends the benefits of your manicure so that you feel your best from head to toe.
The Importance of Customer Loyalty For Your Spa
Loyal customers are a boon to any business. This is particularly true if you run a customer service dependent business such as a spa. Spa-goers are in a buyers’ market. Many businesses offer reasonable massage therapy services and spa treatments. As a result, clients are always searching for the best possible experience. As the manager or spa owner, it is up to you to ensure that your clients’ expectations are at least met, if not exceeded, during every visit, without exception. The following tips can help you maintain and build a loyal client base that improves your spa’s community reputation and drives profits.
Other than offering the best services available, loyalty card programs are a great way for spas to make repeat visits more attractive for clients. A loyalty card, whether it is a physical or a virtual card, gives clients a tangible reminder that a regular pedicure, manicure or massage is a kind of routine maintenance. It also rewards repeat attendees with more of the services they love and, perhaps, inspires them to invite a potential client or two to your spa. (more…)
