Updated: Oct 19

Choosing your pamper place is so hard sometimes we all are making mistakes by not knowing what is right and what is wrong, because the standards should be exactly the same for the whole Beauty industry, but however the reality is different. The competition is way too much, the demand for the beauty is way too big, but at the end of the day the Beauty is a pleasure and relaxation, and we all need to make sure it does not turn into a pain treatment!!! How are we choosing our beauty treatments??? 5 simple things draw us to a beauty place, and I can show you even then how it might get wrong and what you should be aware of, so you are enjoying your pampers every time without fail.


1. Hygiene, reputation or recommendation

One of the things which will attract you to walk in to a spa, clinic or a salon, book online an appointment, or even call to our beauty therapist, (if they work as a mobile beauty therapist) is the hygeine! Hygiene -Please look for hygiene! Always! If you had ever waxing from therapist not using gloves - you risking seriously your health by exposing yourself to a blood treatment without protection. How about, if the therapist got a little cut on her skin and transfer nasty disease all day today to all her lovely clients while putting herself in a biggest risk? How about, if this keeps going for few days, few weeks, few months...??? Would you let blood samples be taken in the hospital, if the nurse has no gloves on? I hope that makes you think next time you choosing your beauty treatments place ;) Reputation and recommendation - It's always a good thing to read reviews online or asking a friend or family member about the best in the area and been on a safe side. But never forget to look at the hygiene yourself or just follow your instincts, so you enjoy your pamper and relaxation. Don't forget the recommendations are not usually from another professional therapist, so keep your eyes open. Your friends might not be aware of these 5 mistakes they could make themselves... I know - tricky ;)

2. Insurance and training

Training certificates displayed in any salon

If you choose to go to the salon, spa or a clinic - look for clearly displayed certificates on the therapists doing your services. Always a peace of mind, what they are qualified in and are they doing treatments they shouldn't do, not been qualified in or even charging you more for a very high experienced in the industry, but on certificate they just finished their training course ;) If you choose to book an appointment online - look for well-established insurance company. The insurance company is your guarantee that this spa, salon or mobile therapist is qualified. I did saw this case scenario, as well - displayed logo of insurance company, but not registered at all ;) Cheeky, isn't it? If you are still concerned, please call the insurance company and double check with them. If something goes wrong with your treatment, you have no one to blame to - it's your fault!!! Why you are risking your own health then, when all you want is to be pampered and looked after????

3. Patch tests

Can you risk your beauty treatment to turn into a pain treatment??? I CAN'T !!

So where to start with that really???

I don't get the point YOU, as a client not taking a simple caution for your own health. Our body change, our therapists are using different chemical products on such a delicate area of your body, and you still want your lashes, brows or hair done - NOW!!!

I can see this more and more often these days. I do seriously get at least 3-4 phone calls, emails every single day from people want to do their lashes without patch test to be done upfront and they still do them by therapists not care about their clients HEALTH, but their clients' MONEY - shocking to me!!!

Do you know that you have to have a patch test every 6 months, even if you have done your treatments in the same salon before, but not been there for a while??? Do you know that you have to inform your therapist, if you are under medications, medical treatments, pregnancy, resent surgery, resent broken bone???

Same thing really applies for all tints: brows or lashes, even for your hair.

But where comes to aesthetics or client's comfort - O M G defiantly another blog is coming shortly ...

And again, don't forget it is your choice how you want to look ;)

While I was writing this blog, I saw something in the social media (ask for permission of course to use this photos), which make me come back and add this for you all to be even more careful, when you want to use products on your own at home.

Have you ever tinted your hair at home with a kit bought from the local supermarket? How about a night out and not having time for lash extensions and stick on some strip lashes bought from the same local supermarket ;)

Do you know you have to do same patch test yourself, as in the salon and it's on most instructions with a small print, of course.

Well, that's what it might happen. The lady on the picture wasn't allergic 5-6 years ago, but unlucky - she did react this time. Who going to think home product might be harmful ...

Poor lady, I hope she recovers quickly.

4. Upfront Consultation

Your therapist needs to know you a little bit. It's more important than you think. Not only you are sharing your details in case you need to be contacted, if running late or being up to date with all the promotions, discounts or events, but also to make sure you will be safe for the treatments they might be giving you. Beauty therapists are not Doctors, but they deal with your body parts, and they should be aware of your personal health, so they can adapt your expectation with your current needs. By putting your signature on the consultation card and have a little chat you are actually secure your safety and more pleasant treatment.

The good therapist always will adapt the treatment and make sure you are comfortable enough, whatever the reason is - been too stressed at work last couple of days, couldn't sleep properly, been too hot during the summer holiday and maybe sunburned a little bit - the bond with your therapist and talking to is the key to be safe and relaxed and pampered by your own personal needs.


5. Aftercare

After care in any beauty service is as important, as the actual treatment itself

How do you judge if you're going to a good place or not? It's a good place to go back to if you receive after care every time, even you are having the same treatment for years with them.

You always have peace of mind if you are being taken care of. If your mobile beauty therapist offers reminders, in our busy lives this helpful.

Don't be scared when products has been recommended. I know, some therapists can be a bit pushy to sell their products, because they are taking commissions for their sales, but some will make sure you know how to look after yourself and you can prolong the professional treatment you just spend your money and time for and enjoy it in a long term.

These are who actually care for you. The market is overflowing with products, with companies and sales, but the best would be, if you choose to use professional products for home care from the professional brand you just choose to use and treat yourself in the salon.

Most of the products have little samples to try before to buy. Use them! Ask for them!

Beauty is about trying and feeling, enjoying and the experience.

Make sure you are spending your time and money to the right places and therapists and never risk your own health and wellbeing. Enjoy your pampering every time.
