Services To Try At Your Beauty Salon

The next time you make an appointment at your local beauty salon, you might want to investigate services they offer other than just a standard haircut and style. Many salons offer a wide range of beauty treatments, the majority of which are very affordable and can be done very quickly, so you don't need to set aside a full day and your entire pay check to walk out of the salon looking your best! Consider some treatments and services you might see at a beauty salon and what they involve so you can determine the best options for your next visit.

Glycolic peel

A chemical peel can be a very good choice for those who have acne scars, spider veins and other blemishes on their face. However, these peels can also be a bit traumatizing to the skin, and it may take days to fully recover from this treatment. A glycolic peel is much more gentle and uses a very lightweight type of acid that is actually found in many sugar crops. This peel can make your skin look younger and smoother, but without the redness and irritation of a full chemical peel.

Paraffin wax

Paraffin wax can be used on both the hands and feet before a manicure or pedicure. This wax is very smooth and thick, and seeps into the skin when warmed. A paraffin wax treatment usually involves dipping the hands and feet in the wax and then wrapping them in plastic and covering them in a soft and warm cloth. This treatment soothes the skin and helps to soften calluses and other dry patches that may not respond well to standard creams and oils.

Semi-permanent makeup

Semi-permanent makeup, sometimes called hyper-pigmentation can be added to any area of the face, to mimic the look of eyeliner, blush, lipstick, and so on. This treatment can last for several weeks after application. You can then forego applying makeup during this time, or have your natural looks enhanced with a bit of colour to the cheeks and lips, as needed.

Hair wraps and masks

You may use facial masks at home or get one applied at a salon, but note that hair wraps and masks can offer many benefits as well. These masks add moisture to the hair so you avoid split ends, and they may nourish a dry scalp, helping you to avoid dandruff, itchiness, and other such irritation. Some can even add tint and colour to the hair, but without the harsh chemicals of hair dyes or bleach.
