Bringing the Salon Home

by | Jul 21, 2021 | service guide

Did you realise how much you depended on your salon up until 2020? Neither did we. Your regular haircuts, manicures and pedicures, waxing appointments, all went for a toss when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Salon at home services became almost a necessity.

There were a lot of DIY skin care, face care and hair care routines, and everyone tried to give themselves a haircut (most failed at doing a good job of it), but it just was not the same. After all, how much can one unqualified person do when compared to a trained and professional beautician?

There were always at home salon services available, but we didn’t really feel the need to utilise their services up until now. As soon as the markets started to open up, one of the first things everyone around the world did was make an appointment to bring the salon at home, and get ourselves a nice, professional haircut. Everything else came after.

The haircut struggle was really prominent in men, who were typically used to getting their hair cut every two weeks or once a month. Months of unkempt hair, especially for those who worked in highly professional settings (such as law or investment banking) was deemed to be unprofessional and inappropriate. At home salon services came to their rescue and finally got them to look clean cut and polished.

So, what exactly are salon beauty services at home? How does it work? What do you do? How does it benefit you in the long run? Read on to find out!

Salon at Home Services – What They Are

The term is fairly self-explanatory. At home salon services just bring the salon beauty services to your home. These can be salons or standalone beauticians or hair stylists. You can book your services depending upon what you need.

What services does a salon at home provide?

Any and all services that you could have gotten at a professional salon or spa, you can get at your home. It really is that convenient (we’re wondering why we didn’t pick that option earlier too). The basic salon beauty services at home can essentially be categorised into four services, mentioned in detail below.

Hair Salon Services

These are your typical hair care services. They include your haircuts, hair styling, hair colouring, hair spas, and more. Salons that offer multiple services that go beyond just hair care can send their hair stylists to your home to meet your needs. There are also professional hair stylists you can book your appointments with directly that don’t work with any salon whose services you can entail.

Spa Salon Services

Think of the rejuvenating spa day you feel deprived of… all these months without a massage, especially under these stressful times can really take a toll on you. Spa salon services bring the spa right to your home. Some of the spa services include different types of massages with massage therapists (they bring all the oils and equipment, don’t worry), facials, and more.

Hair Removal Salon Services

While you can’t get your hair laser removal treatment at home, you can opt for other hair removal salon services if you want to throw your razor away and experience the smoothness on your skin again. You can opt for waxing or threading services, and you can choose the type of waxing treatment you want to get, depending upon your preference.

Manicure and Pedicure Services

Most women, especially those who were used to getting to their nail appointments once a week, missed their nail technicians and manicurists more than anything else in this world. You can pamper yourself by bringing the weekly mani-pedi routine at home. It might not be possible for you to get the extensive nail treatments that you might desire, but the joy of getting a really nice manicure or pedicure can still make the world of a difference.

Benefits of At Home Salon Services

If you weren’t convinced already, at home salon services come with a number of benefits as well!

Bringing the Salon at Home is Super Convenient

We know the struggle of booking an appointment at your favourite salon. You have to work your schedule around it. Now, no more! If you book your appointment to bring the salon at home, you can choose the time and day and have the professional reach you wherever you are. You don’t even have to step outside the house!

Imagine going for a massage, only having to get up after the relaxing treatment, wrap up, and go home. Now you don’t have to do that anymore. You can just laze around on your bed, on the couch, or wherever you feel like and relax after your massage treatment is complete. It is the ultimate comfort zone.

Salon Beauty Services at Home are the Safer Option

Since proximity is the biggest issue in the COVID-19 pandemic, you don’t want to step into a crowded salon with ten booths and 20 different appointments within the day itself. You don’t have to worry about the hygiene and cleanliness standards that the salon maintains because you know that your home is safe from the virus. Opting for at home salon services is the safest option to get the beauty experience.

No Rushing, Only Pampering

Salons are usually booked through the day, and you normally feel like you are just being shuffled around between appointments. You don’t have to feel like you’re a part of a rush while you’re getting your treatments because the professionals who come to your home are in a more relaxed environment. It’s not about meeting the next appointment, it’s about completing their job in the best way possible.

Save Time

You end up saving a lot of time that you didn’t realize you were spending to go to your appointment. If you had an appointment on a Saturday afternoon, for example, you would have to get ready for the appointment, travel to the salon, and travel back. If you’re in the comfort of your own home, you have to do none of these things!

… And Save Money Too!

This seems unlikely at first, but hear us out. Normally, salons have to invest in really expensive equipment besides the ones they use for your treatments. The chairs, chests and storage, stocking, all of these get eliminated when they choose to offer at home salon services. Since the beauticians save up on all of these costs by offering salon at home services, you do too! It is often cheaper to get salon beauty services at home as compared to going to an actual salon.

General Tips to Follow for At Home Salon Services

If you have decided that bringing salon beauty services at home is the right choice for you, here are some protective and hygiene factors to keep in mind. We are still faced with the COVID-19 pandemic, so no precaution is too extreme.

Confirm Vaccination

The professionals you are bringing into your home should ideally be vaccinated. Ask them to confirm their vaccination along with proof, just to be safe.

Check for Body Temperature

The vaccine does not completely eliminate the chances of someone contracting the virus. You should still check their body temperature and their general health beforehand.

Ensure They Wear Proper Gear

A PPE kit may seem extreme, but the technicians and stylists entering your home should wear one. They should also be equipped with a medical mask, a face shield as well as gloves.

Use Only Single-Use Products

Make sure all the blades, towels, etc. in use are single-use only. There are instances where this won’t be possible. If you are calling for a haircut appointment, for example, the stylist won’t be able to use single-use scissors. What you can do in this case is that you can make sure everything is properly sterilised and sanitised before they use their products.

Sanitize the Work Area

You need to make sure that the area the beauty service provider is going to use is sanitised both before and after use to ensure maximum safety.

Disposal of Products

The beauty technician needs to make sure that the tools used during your appointment are either disposed of properly or cleaned properly after use. Improper disposal can lead to contamination and spreading of disease.
