The Importance Of A Clean Workplace

Keeping a clean workplace is essential, whether it's a home office or hair salon. This article will go into the latter.

The modern day hair salon or beauty spa is a place where people gather to get hair, nail and body treatments, and make conversation with their hosts, in this case, hair, nail, and body stylists. Some of these are considered day spas that may offer every beauty treatment available in a relaxing environment, while others specialize in one treatment, such as hair or nails alone. Most often the day spa is considered to be a place where one can relax and alleviate some of the stresses of every day life. Most of the time they are a peaceful atmosphere with waterfalls, fountains, soft music, dim lighting, and candles, as these are the things that are found to lead to a more relaxing environment. 

Introduction To Salons And Day Spas

Treatments at a day spa often include Swedish massages, hot oil massages, deep tissue massages, yoga classes, and many other types of massages to soothe your aching muscles. Some offer hot tubs, warm pools, pregnancy massages and couples massages so that the mom-to-be or the couple can enjoy relaxation time together. Many full service day spas also offer slimming wraps, facials, and foot care, while some are all-inclusive and offer nail, hair, and waxing treatments as well. Unlike a day spa, a salon often only offers one or two services such as hair and nails or just hair or just nails. Most often your stylist has gone to a cosmetology school and has been trained in all the latest styles and can help you decide the look that is best for your hair and facial structure. They concentrate on hair cuts for all, permanents of all styles, hair coloring, and specialty hair styles for a single event such as a wedding or graduation. Some specialty shops offer hair braiding and hair extensions to offer you that special look. So whether you are looking for an all-inclusive place that will offer special deals on packages that may include a massage and a hair cut or a place that offers just a simple hair cut, there is a salon that will satisfy whatever hair or beauty needs that you may have.

Keep It Clean Consistently

Whether you are a hair salon employee, a hair salon owner, or a regular hair salon client, sanitation and cleanliness of the hair salon should always be important to you. This is because bacteria, viruses and various other types of microscopic organisms could be breeding and thriving in the various implements, tools of the trade and in the premises of the hair salon itself without your being aware of it. How simple is it to contract something when you visit a hair salon for a trim? The comb that is used to smooth out tangles in your hair could have just been used on another customer who has lice, yet the hairstylist may not have had the comb washed and disinfected. The rollers that the staff may use to roll up your hair preparatory to setting so that you wind up with bouncy curls could have been used beforehand on someone with a catching scalp condition like psoriasis. And the towels they use to wrap your head after washing may have been used on another client – which is just plain disgusting. So how do you go about inspecting the salon’s sanitation is a most secretive way can be? The following tips are helpful: 

360 Fast Glance Around 

You can double check the sanitation and cleanliness level of the hair salon you like to visit by just casually glancing around. And your first glance should be at the tray where they stack the tools of the trade (such as combs, brushes, scissors, rollers, and others). Do the combs and brushes seem to have other people's hair still stuck in them? Are they kind of oily? You might venture out a hand and rub a finger along a comb – if it feels oily, well, that is scalp oil from someone else (or a lot of other people) that you are feeling. A good salon will always make it a point to wash and disinfect such implements before using them on new clients.

Talk It Out Today

Check out the towels and hand cloths. Are they stacked neatly on a shelf and folded just right? You might want to make discreet inquiries like "so who washes your towels?" in a casual way. Towels used by one customer, even for just drying that client's hair, should never be recycled for use on another customer without washing and drying first. Anyone who has learned gym jokes about fungus faces and other illnesses that come with sharing towels probably already knows that sharing towels is an excellent way to come down with something catching. Sneeze that hair out You could also look at the hair accumulating on the floor – is it regularly swept up? Or do they let around five clients get haircuts first before they start sweeping the mess into a dustpan for disposal? 

Quality Check Your Hairstylist 

Take a good look at your hairstylist too. Are their nails kept clean and tidy? Or are they long and kind of dirty? A hairstylist with dirty fingernails might have something catching living under those nails which could be passed on to you so if you spot that type of detail, say good bye politely and never return. There are hair salons from hell and there are hair salons which are very diligent about practicing sound sanitation and cleanliness habits. Your best choice? The latter as your beauty and health depend on it.
