Scratch The Surface
When searching among the many nail salons that are available, make sure you find the ones that follow strict hygiene rules. The ideal might be a salon that pitches tools between clients. You might consider bringing along your own tools for them.
Another big-time issue is the chemicals that are in nail polish, nail polish remover, and all of the chemicals in between. They can be so toxic that people who work in salons may suffer from lung problems from exposure to nail chemicals day in and day out.
It can be very emotional to have to move on from your old salon if they close up shop. Take the bite out of finding a new salon by getting a better deal when shopping around for a new nail salon.
Use sites such as ScoutMob and Groupon to get a good deal. Be sure that you tip on the full price amount, so if you do decide to go back, the salon staff will not be side-eyeing you. In many places, they make less than minimum wage and expose their bodies to 12 hour-days for $40 per day of pay. Tip well, their lives depend upon it.
Always browse through online reviews to find out what salons may be worth the price. Some might sound good as they have been pumped up from paid participation. In other cases, there is an unruly or unrealistically negative view as well.
Accounting for the overly optimistic paid reviews and the emotional or unwarranted negative review, you can generally get a sense of what the experience is like at different nail salons. That is the main purpose for reading reviews.
It will give you tips on navigating remarkably bad parking situations, what time to go to the salon, and what services are spectacular. You might also get a head’s up about the pricing, and the features of the salon itself and services that they offer.
Not all salons are bad, but it is important to guard your health and safety when you are putting your hands and feet out there on the line. Keep infection away while beautifying yourself.
