Beautician’s Day

Beauticians do a lot for us…wax our brows, pamper our toes, massage sore muscles, perfectly polish our nails, make our skin glow, and save us from destroying our hair by trying to cut it ourselves. No doubt about it, hair stylists and colorists, barbers, makeup artists, nail technicians, estheticians, and any other form of beautician deserve their own day.

Celebrate Beautician’s Day by pampering your beautician for a change. If you’re not a beautician yourself, we highly suggest you send your beautician to a professional via a gift card. Make their day of pampering extra special by sending them to a spa for a day of relaxation.

And if you have an appointment scheduled for today, don’t forget to leave your beautician a generous tip (every day, not just on Beautician’s Day)!
