Got a guest blogger today! Jake the toe paint guy send me an email with tips for a guy when you would want to visit the nail salon for the first time. I thought it would be wonderful to share is his amazing tips right here for you.
Tips for men when visiting a salon:
1)Call ahead. Setting up an appointment ahead of time provides many advantages:
a. You will be expected and have a known time slot that you can plan on
b. You will be able to learn what services are offered for men
c. You will know the price and options available
d. You will avoid landing in the middle of a nail party (such as for a wedding) or busy time!
e. You will be more relaxed – and the salon will be too!
2)Communicate what you want. You might want the works – a full spa pedicure and/or manicure. Or, you might just want a basic pedicure. Maybe you like your nails just buffed, or maybe you like to wear them with polish. Tell the nail tech what you like so that she or he knows how to best serve you.
3)Ask for their suggestions. These folks are pros and have a knack for knowing what will look good – especially on you. And, they can clue you in on the new trends if you like to keep ahead of the styles.
4)Come prepared. Not all salons have reading material that men like – bring some of your own. And, if you like a particular brand or color of polish, bring a bottle with you.
Or, you could be adventurous and try something from their impressive collection. There are many new colors coming out for men now, so why not give it a try?
5)Clean up. Just before arriving, take a shower or bath, shave and wear some neat, clean clothes. If having a pedicure or manicure, clean under your nails so that the nail tech doesn’t have to deal with that.
6)Tip generously! People who work in salons don’t usually do it just for the money. They love the work and want to serve their customers. Tips are a good way that you can compliment them and show your appreciation for their good work. And it helps them remember you the next time you return, so that you get even better service!
7)Enjoy your refreshed look. Yeah, guys can have great-looking hands, feet and nails too, and it sure beats having rough, calloused and grungy looking digits. And women really appreciate a guy who takes care of himself.
8)And, my last bit of advice is to go with your girlfriend or wife, especially if you have never been to a nail salon before. It will be more fun and enjoyable to share the experience, and she will love the treat too!
I would really like to thank Jake for these great tips for men. Don’t be shy try once you might find you really enjoyed it!
