Salon Clients Leave a Lasting Imprint

Salon owner asks clients to paint their handprints on her salon walls. 

Think back to your youth—long sunny days filled with jungle gyms, apple juice, and, of course, finger-painting. Those days are not so long ago at You’re Soaking In It, a Van Nuys, Calif., nail salon where clients are encouraged leave their mark with brightly colored tempera paints. Owner Hayley Alexander encourages clients to dip a hand (or foot) into the water-soluble paint and place a print, along with a signature, on one of the salon white walls. “The idea just came to me, probably because I had some big, blank walls to decorate,” Alexander explains. “What’s more, clients really enjoy it.”Of course, clients dip before their manicures.
