Houston Facials: Don’t Commit A Facial Faux Pas! What Not To Do At The Spa
Proper spa etiquette to make your facial experience even more enjoyable.
By Tyler Rhodes
Miss Manners probably never gave you spa rules so we’re here to help.
There’s just something about a facial that really makes you feel like a brand new person. Maybe it’s the soft, soothing music that calms the soul. Maybe it’s the pampering that makes you feel like royalty. Perhaps it’s the glow you get after receiving one. Whatever the case, facials are known for these qualities and more. If you’re planning your first trip or are a regular at the spa you should know there’s an unspoken etiquette. You don’t want to be one of those clients everyone hates working with do you? No worries, we won’t let you be “that person” … we’re here to clue you in.
It’s understandable that life gets hectic and sometimes people can run a little behind, especially to appointments that aren’t considered mandatory. When scheduling your facial, just remember it’s your time you’re paying for. If you arrive 10 minutes late, then have to fill out paperwork and get situated, you’re not leaving much time left for your treatment. Don’t do your face a disservice by showing up late. Your lack of punctuality may also cause other appointments to be pushed back. You don’t want to keep everyone waiting, do you? Arrive early.
Turn your phone off.
Nothing is going to ruin your relaxing experience faster than a ringing or vibrating phone. It’s not only rude to your aesthetician but also to the other guests in the spa who came there looking for some peace and quiet. There will be some exceptions, like if you need to keep in contact with your children, however generally speaking, it should be no cell phones allowed. Turn your phone off.
Remember to brush your teeth freshen your breath.
This should be a no brainer but you’d be surprised by the amount of people who don’t even consider this when someone is going to be coming within close contact of their face. We’ve all had that bad experience. The hair dresser who had garlic at lunch. The bad date who smells like they just chomped down on a raw, whole onion. I’m almost positive you don’t want a stinky-mouthed person subjecting you to their fowl odors while cleaning that skin so don’t be rude by blowing your dragon breath all over the place. Use a mint!
It’s proper to tip.
Often times in life we come across a situation where we have no idea whether to tip or not. Well, this is a good time to pull out that old wallet and tip the aesthetician that just made you look and feel like a million bucks. Generally speaking the standard rate is 20% for good service.
If you’re new to the game, you now know the proper way to act during your first trip to the spa. This will create an even more enjoyable experience and you’ll make a great first impression to the staff. For those of you who have experienced the magic of getting a facial (but maybe didn’t realize protocol), we hope these tips help. Now, feel free to go forth in confidence… it’s facial time!
