Traditional pedicure chairs or comfy chairs with portable spas? Which is costand space-effective?


Definitely go with the traditional pedicure chairs. Pedicure chairs are designed by somebody with only one thought in mind: allowing for a great pedicure. A chair styled for pedicures has features such as comfort, massage and reclining capabilities, and, importantly, ergonomics. A regular chair bought from a typical furniture store won’t have these features. For instance, in correctly designed pedicure chairs, the client’s feet dangle and barely touch the water, which is ideal for the service. Plus, you don’t want your client to be uncomfortable, contorting into a weird stretch in order to pass her foot to you. You also want to be comfortable yourself. You don’t want to crouch down because the tub is on the floor.

How Do I Learn Nail Art If No One Is Available to Teach Me?

I am an apprentice in a natural nail salon. Sometimes I get requests for nail art. I would love to learn how to do different nail designs, but I am a beginner. I live in Virginia and there are never nail seminars or lectures or even hands-on classes here. Do you have any suggestions on learning nail art designs when there is no one in my area to teach it? Watching videos is good but sometimes you just need hands-on.
