Three Etiquette Tips When Visiting a Luxury Spa or Salon

Most people don’t get the luxury of going to the spa or salon frequently because of the cost and time necessary to make that happen. This is why many of them feel uncomfortable or uneasy with knowing how to act when they go. Luckily, there are specific etiquette tips you can follow to make sure you’re not acting inappropriately when you visit a nice luxury spa or salon in Orem for the first time.

Always Tip

Gratitude is a lost art form. Just because you are paying someone for a service doesn’t mean they don’t deserve the respect of a “thank you” after all is said and done. It’s important to thank them both with words of gratitude as well as with leaving a tip. This is tricky for some because often people go as a result of a gift certificate. Typically, gift certificates don’t include gratuities. So be ready to fork overa tip even if your experience has been covered by a gift certificate.

Make Expectations Clear

Another kind thing to do for both you and the workers at the salon or spa is to make your expectations very clear. It’s hard to do a job well if they are unclear of what exactly one wants them to do. Of course, be kind as you go about it. Nothing is more frustrating than finishing a job on toes or hair and then finding out the client wanted something else completely different. So be clear and concise as you tell them your wants. Don’t let them make assumptions or anything of that nature.

Don’t Dawdle

Realize that like restaurants, these companies rely on turnover. Sitting for hours after a treatment is over is just plain rude. Most spas have places to go to enjoy a great drink and soak up the atmosphere that will not inhibit more clients from enjoying their services. So simply speaking, be aware of others. When the service is done, you can rest for 10minutes or so but then it’s best to get up and move to another area where you will not be in the way of future clients coming into the salon in Orem.

Stay Warm this Winter with Thermal Underwear

Thermal clothing is ideal for wearing during the winter months, especially if you are going to be outdoors. Whether you wear thermals to work, to school or while playing sports, they can be very comfortable and there are many stylish designs to choose from. Thermals trap heat in a way that normal clothing doesn’t to keep you warm.

Underwear of the thermal persuasion is particularly popular and is widely sold in a range of clothing stores and online. Many highstreet chains and supermarkets should both stock thermals during the winter months, with online shops stocking them all year round. It may be possible to get some bargains out of season, so have a look at different retailers and compare prices in order to find the best deal.

Online retailers are often cheaper, although you do have to factor in the postage and packaging costs and that you may have to return the items if they do not fit. Highstreet stores and supermarkets may offer the option for you to try them on in store before buying. Various sales may be on from time to time too. Weigh up the options to see which is the best for you.

Thermal underwear can be worn by men, women and children of all ages. Men can expect to find shorts, long johns, vests and briefs, while women can choose from knickers, shorts, vests and camisoles. Various other options may also be available to purchase. Socks and tights are other popular choices, as feet can get cold whether indoors or out.

All sorts of designs are available to choose from. Men’s clothing is often in black, white, grey, blue and beige, while common colours for women are pink, white, black, purple and red. Stripes are popular for both sexes. Kids clothing often features pictures such as hearts, stars, cars, animals or football, for example. Some may even feature branded cartoons, such as Peppa Pig, Disney or Spongebob Squarepants.

Thermal clothing can be worn as underwear under normal clothing, so it does not need to be on display. There are some stylish outerwear designs available also though, so this can make a great everyday outfit and keep you warm at the same time.

Underwear should be a close hug on the body to trap in heat, but comfortable at the same time. Stretching seams are ideal for movement flexibility. They should be easy to clean and dry and be the right size to ensure for a good fit.

When doing an outdoor activity such as skiing, thermals are important. You will need a lot of layers for protection and to keep in heat at the same time. It can get really cold outdoors and normal clothing does not always suffice. Affordable thermals can be purchased in great quality designs, so it is possible to purchase them without breaking the bank. Look online and in store to compare designs and prices to find the right ones for you. Thermals can also make great gift ideas during the winter months.

Stay warm this winter (or, indeed, any winter, including the winter holocaust that we’ll likely be plunged into when the environmental balance on Earth collapses) with thermal underwear.
