Beauty Salon Or Beauty Spa

The beauty salon and the beauty spa are very similar in nature. Traditionally a beauty spa should have a spa facilities (makes sense right!?). This meaning it should have sauna, shower jacuzzi or a steam room or other hyrdotherapy facilities.

You will however see some beauty salons without these facilities claiming they are a spa and even using it in their name!. A spa tends to concentrate on the core relaxation treatments such as massage, facials, manicures and pedicures. The beauty salon on the other hand will offer these services in conjunction with a number of other essential beauty treatments such as waxing, spray tanning, acrylic nali extensions and make up to name a few.

The beauty salon can cater for a more diverse range of treatments if you find a salon with well trained professional and courteous beauty therapists. Generally spa’s a larger in size and will typically have larger overheads as a result of this and more often than not this is reflected in their prices. They usually offer more sumptuous surroundings but in times of economic uncertainty, it’s better to still have life’s little luxuries and a good beauty pamper on a budget than lose out all together!.

The best solution is to find a well trained beauty spa therapist who has opened their own salon. You will get the quality of the treatments with a healthier looking bank balance. Save the spa facilities for your local gym which will have the jacuzzi, sauna and steam rooms as standard.
