Meet the Hair Salon Team

Each hair salon staff member has a specific responsibility. A colourist, for example, can hardly be expected to fill in for a senior stylist who called in sick. This arrangement helps the salon expand its services without sacrificing quality. In no particular order, here are some of the people you'll typically find in a salon.

Creative Director
Arguably the most experienced person on the team, the creative director assumes many responsibilities. Aside from working alongside other stylists, the creative director shares knowledge and provides guidance to the rest of the team. Such a professional also stays updated on the latest trends.

How to Make the Most out of Your Mani and Pedi

There’s nothing more rewarding than a well-deserved manicure and pedicure to cap off a full day of pampering at your favourite spa. That’s just the sort of relaxation a go-getting gal like you needs after an incredibly hectic work week! That said, here are a couple of tips to make the most out of your manicure/pedicure.
First, pick a suitable colour combination. Will it be a fresh and bright colour combination this time, or something more daring to commemorate your triumph over another challenge at work? If you’re not up for exploring some of today’s hottest nail trends, you can ask for a simple yet strong hue for your nails.

Hair Extensions: Why Synthetic is Problematic

With most purchases in life, there is a strong link between price and quality. This is especially true for hair extensions, a popular way to boost hair volume or add hair length for those who want a long, lush mane. Extensions come in two main kinds: synthetic and real human hair, but a reputable Sydney salon will only ever recommend the second one, and for good reason.

If you’re contemplating getting hair extensions, you’ll want them to look as natural as possible. Synthetic extensions don’t accomplish this very well, and they tend to project an artificial—indeed, almost plastic-like—look after application. Additionally, it’s challenging to find natural colours in synthetic pieces, making them tricky to blend with your own hair.

Why Not Indulge in a Whole Body Massage?

After 5 days of working hard in the office, or running back and forth from the nurses’ station to your patients’ rooms, or standing in front of your students screaming your heart out, you’ve got to relax and release the stress. Yes, hard work pays off, but abusing your body won’t do you any good. The employee of the month, dedicated mother of four, compassionate nurse, and the patient teacher need some time off too. You also have to unwind. What’s a better way to do that than to indulge in a whole body massage? 


Benefits of a Whole Body Massage

Massage significantly lessens stress levels in lots of people. Though no studies can prove that it also reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression, most people experiencing them can testify to that. It promotes good quality of sleep, reserves energy, and improves concentration as well.

After a taxing week at work, our muscles strain from overuse. We feel pain in some parts of our body. Athletes, in particular, are prone to this because of their hard training regimens. A whole body massage can relieve muscle stiffness, soreness, and pain. If you feel hurt, a body massage can trigger the release of endorphins which is an active pain killer.

As muscles, tendons, ligaments, and skin are rubbed and manipulated, circulation improves. The oxygen and the nutrients are circulated to the tissues and the organs better and more efficiently. It encourages tissue regeneration with the stimulated blood flow. Body massage reduces scars and stretch marks. It makes our skin look healthy and younger-looking. A hardworking woman like you deserves a relaxing treat in a day spa in Sydney. Enjoy active massage therapy with aromatic and essential oils after an exhausting tennis game or a simple Swedish therapy after a demanding work week. Indulge in a soothing massage. You deserve quality pampering.

The Dos and Don’ts in Nail Care

When you look at your nails, do you think they appear to be strong and healthy? Healthy nails don’t have pits or grooves. They are uniform in color and consistency, smooth, and free from discoloration. Nail care is one of the easiest and most basic habits we should all develop. There are some people who judge others by their nails. Have you ever met one? You see, it can indicate a person’s hygiene regardless of gender. Your nails can give a lasting first impression. Learn the dos and don’ts of nail care to keep them looking their best.

The Dos:

It’s important to keep your nails dry and clean. Prevent bacteria, fungi, and other unwelcome organisms from growing under your fingernails. Avoid contact with strong and harsh chemicals or long soaks in the tub. For instance, you can wear cotton-lined rubber gloves when you clean or wash the dishes.

Trim or file your fingernails regularly. The ideal time to do this is after bathing or washing your hands so that the nails are soft. Using a sharp nail cutter, trim your nails straight across and file them in a gentle curve.

Moisturize! When you apply your hand lotion, also rub some on your fingernails and cuticles.

The Don’ts

Avoid biting your fingernails. This mannerism can damage the nail bed. It can be hard for others to get over the habit, but minor cuts allows bacteria and fungi to enter and they can lead to infection and other nail conditions.

Don’t pull off hangnails. Clip off hangnails gently and carefully. Pulling them off rips healthy tissue along with the hangnail.

Don’t ignore nail problems. Your nails may be a small portion of your body, but nail conditions may indicate more serious health problems. If they don’t go away, you might want to visit a dermatologist for a consultation.

Regular nail maintenance prevents nail problems. These are small details some people overlook. Here at Detail Woman, we cut, shape, and buff your nails, tidy your cuticles, and moisturize surrounding skin. Visiting a day spa in Sydney maintains the health and integrity of your fingernails and toenails. Take these dos and don’ts in nail care by heart to leave a good impression. Remember, men love women with clean fingernails, and big bosses look at them during job interviews too.
