Most people don’t have the funds to visit an expensive salon or spa regularly. In fact, many never even go. Luckily, there are some like the HairVenture Salon and Spa that are affordable enough to visit rather frequently. If you have never been to a spa, though, it would be good to know what you should expect. While every spa will differ in their own ways, there are some similarities you can get familiar with.
A Good Greeting
Spas generally never take people in for services the moment they arrive. Typically, you will be greeted warmly, asked to have a seat, and a beverage of some sort will be offered. The beverage is complementary, so no reason to decline it. Grab a magazine and make yourself comfortable. They will come get you when they are ready for you.
Lots of Conversation
The only time the staff will not be chatty with you is possibly while you are receiving a relaxing massage. Some therapists don’t know whether they should remain silent or strike up a conversation. They consider it a kindness when you let them know what you prefer. Most are not offended either way. It’s just nice for them to know what you would prefer on all counts.
Payment after Services
If you have a coupon or a gift certificate, it’s good to let them know when you make the appointment. It’s also nice to ask them if they would like to be reminded when you come in for services. You will not be asked for payment until after the services have been rendered. Some people prefer to pay for their HairVenture Salon and Spa experience prior to receiving services and if that’s the case for you, just ask. A tip is always expected, so be sure to bring extra for that. Otherwise, you should have nothing to worry about and a pleasant experience overall.
