New Year, New You
Self-care seems to be the buzz word, but what does it really mean?
It’s so individual; to some people it’s a long soak in the bath reading or just alone time for others it could be a noisy packed pub.
In the salon we understand the importance of taking time for yourself and enjoying a treatment be it hair, beauty or even both. Many of our clients feel the benefits of just stopping relaxing and chatting to others in the salon it’s such a social place I love this aspect.
Time seems to be so sort for everyone but allowing time to recover from hectic schedules is vital to promote good wellbeing. a great way to achieve this is to book your next appointment before leaving the salon ensuring your you time is a priority.
Beauty treatments may be added with your hair services while colour is processing so why not add nail colour or an eyebrow shape One effect I notice on the clients faces whilst sitting in salon is less tired around the eyes rejuvenating and resting why not add to the do list sit for 30 minutes and chill.
Intention’s and good habits how often have we heard this one it’s so hard to change some behaviours but one small change at a time works could be has simple has drink one extra glass of water a day or remembering to use all those beauty products we all have hidden away. Get them out and use them, move clothes around in the wardrobe and wear those best pieces don’t keep saving them for best.
