Demand for salon services has gradually increased in recent years. Back then, services such as haircuts, colors, and treatments were the only ones available. These days, beauty salons offer more services, from manicures and pedicures to permanent makeup and hair removal. In case you are a beauty salon owner wondering what else you can offer aside from haircuts and colors, check out our list of the top beauty salon services.
With most women having fast-paced and busy lifestyles, putting on makeup every day becomes extra work. However skipping makeup is not an option, as most women would feel presentable with at least lipstick and well-made eyebrows. That is why semi-permanent makeup has a growing client following recently. Micro-pigmentation and hair stroke techniques are used to create a natural-looking outcome. Eyebrows, eyeliner, and natural-looking pinkish lips are mostly requested by clients. It is considered semi-permanent because as years go by and the client’s age, it is advisable to get a retouch to freshen up the pigments.
A lot of celebrities and influencers flutter their lashes and yes, seems womanly and sexy! Natural-looking woke up like this, long lashes are preferred too. But not everyone has the time (or skills) to curl those lashes every day, apply mascara or fake lashes! That is why a lot of women are availing services like eyelash perm or eyelash extensions. Most prefer natural hairs (looks and feel like real human lashes), which are attached to the real lashes using special glue. The look may range from natural, curled lashes to thick and fluttery ones. The lashes would eventually fall with the real lashes during shedding, so a touch-up is usually done every 2 to 4 weeks. The eyelash perm, on the other hand, is a service that curls the real lashes permanently. This would usually last for a few weeks to a month.
Hair removal using laser
Laser hair removal can be compared to the IPL (Intense Pulse Light) process. It is a technology that uses pulses of laser to destroy the hair follicle. It can be done on different parts of the body like the underarms, legs, bikini area, even the face. This service is popular with people who are not fond of plucking or waxing. It is also less harsh to the skin, therefore lessening the chances of darkening the area.
Gel manicure and pedicure
Once again, since most women have a fast-paced life, or prefer a lesser hassle in beauty care and maintenance, gel polish has been a lifesaver. This is perfect for special occasions such as weddings or vacations. This process uses special nail polish, that is applied to the nails and then exposed under a UV (ultraviolet) light to dry. In most cases, the polish stays on like new for at least four weeks. It is ideal for women who want perfect nails without having to take care of them all day long.
In addition to the usual classic procedure, facials have taken it to the next level. Modern skincare methods include microdermabrasion, aromatherapy, galvanizing, oxygen mist, and microneedling. In contrast to the classic facial, these facials target specific skin concerns, such as hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and skin aging.
Gone are the days of hair treatments that make your eyes cry (and the salon specialist too). Gentler, more natural-looking treatments such as anti-frizz treatments are more preferred. Besides, going to the salon is supposed to be relaxing, right? Treatments with harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde are often avoided or used in smaller amounts. Hair restructuring components such as keratin and collagen are widely used. They won’t produce stick-like, straight hair, but instead natural, healthy-looking locks.
Minimal invasive treatments
Procedures such as botox, non-surgical rhinoplasty, cellulite treatment, and non-surgical facelift are just some of the treatments that can be done in beauty salons too.
The business of beauty is always changing and growing. In order to stay in business for the long term, one must keep up with the times. A beauty salon business in which the client’s features and health are affected is one that should be taken seriously. That is why making sure to hire only experienced and well-trained professionals to do the job is extremely important. Making sure they are well taken care of by having worker’s compensation insurance. Having beauty salon insurance is also a must, aside from requirements in some states, it also provides clients the assurance that they are in good hands. Protection for your business as well, if there would be untoward incidents such as fire, theft, or client’s injury.
