There are so many things to think about when it comes to being a woman! It can be tough to remember them all, or to know what to do in every situation. With beauty and the things that we all do to be beautiful comes a number of etiquette tips. To know what to do at all times, take a look at these top beauty tips — we guarantee they’ll come in handy!
Salon tipping: It can be really stressful (and leave you red-faced and fumbling!) when it comes to tipping people at any Fort Collins hair salons. The best way to prepare for your upcoming salon trip is to prepare the tip ahead of time. 15-20% is the standard tip for a stylist, colorist, manicurist, or anyone else that takes care of your main appointment purpose. If you want to give the girl that shampoos your hair a few dollars, that’s up to you. Having the cash in hand ahead of time will save you a lot of flustered angst when the time comes to tip, so figure out the total price before you go (you can just ask the person that books your appointment!), and be prepared for your own peace of mind.
If you’re booking a massage, don’t be shy about requesting a male or female. The whole point of a massage is to feel as comfortable as possible, so do what puts you the most at ease — including leaving on any clothes that you want to. You don’t have to strip down to nothing, just do what makes you feel the best.
When you notice a chipped nail or a nail that needs to be filed, leave this type of grooming to the comfort and solace of your home. It may seem innocent enough to file or cut a nail when you are out in public, but this can leave behind nail dust (which isn’t pleasant for anyone). Need a manicure? Book one soon, and let a professional tend to your tired nails (plus, it feels great!).
Leave the lipstick application for the bathroom. It can be tempting to reapply lipstick when you feel it melting away after eating and drinking, but it’s a good idea to leave the table in order to apply that fresh coat. Why? It simply looks better, and you’ll have a better chance of applying it properly if you can look in a mirror.
Try not to apply makeup or fix your face while you drive. This is less of a beauty etiquette tip, and more of a safety tip. Plus, how can you apply flawless makeup when you are trying to drive? Pull over if you have to, or wait until you reach your destination to take a few moments to put on your makeup.
Tell another woman that she has a foundation line under her chin, or that her lipstick is now spread across her teeth, or that a piece of toilet paper is stuck to her shoe. Sometimes, it is polite to let someone else know about a makeup mishap — why not extend a hand and do her a favor?
Allow your hair to do its natural thing sometimes. Straight hair has a place, sure, but straightening your hair every day will cause all kinds of problems like split ends and hair that’s drier than straw. Give your natural hair a go, and use the right styling products to make it shine.
Try switching up your part. To really look the part of a polished lady, consider moving your part around sometimes. You don’t have to part your hair the same way every day, and, in fact, it’s good for your hair to part it in a different spot regularly.
