Four Things Men Should Know About Getting Manicures
When you own your own business, you will have direct contact with potential clients. Having a professional look allows people to take you seriously and can better your chances of having a client choose your business over another business. While the clothes you wear are important, one area that many men overlook when it comes to having a finished look is their hands. The following guide walks you through a few things you need to know about getting a manicure as a man, and what you should expect from your first experience getting salon services.
Your Hands Will be Smoothed
When you go to get a manicure, the nail technician will take the time to remove any dead or dry skin from your hands before they even start working on your nails. There are buffing pads and pumas stones that can be used to remove the rough skin and calluses quickly and easily.
Your Nails Will Be Shaped
Next, the technician will shape your nails. He or she will use a nail file to ensure they have a smooth edge. The technician will more than likely create rounded edges on the sides of our nails because it creates a very finished look.
No Color Has to Be Put on Your Nails
After your nails are shaped, the technician will put a layer of clear nail polish on your nails to give them strength to keep them from cracking, chipping, or breaking. When the nail technician puts the polish on your nails, it will not have any color in it. No one will be able to easily point out that there is even any polish on your nails when everything is said and done.
No Scented Lotion Has to be Used
After your nails are finished, the technician can then massage your hands with lotion. The lotion will be unscented so that you do not have to worry about having a feminine scent on you when you go into your business meetings.
A manicure takes a very short of time and will make your hands look much better. Manicures are very affordable and once you find a great technician, they will go even faster because he or she will know what you want to have done without you having to tell them. Have your nails done on a regular basis to keep them looking great at all times. Once every two or three weeks should be sufficient, if you do not do a lot of manual labor with your hands.
