Visiting a beautician, be it in a private office or a salon, is an important experience for millions of women. These visits do not only help enhance your beauty, they also boost your confidence and help you relax and relieve some stress out of your busy life.
And in today’s society, beauticians play an even more important part as they are trained to spot signs of domestic abuse and first symptoms of skin cancer. This means that these relaxing and beauty-boosting treatments can literally help save your life in many ways.
But in some cases, the beautician you visit or only consider visiting might not be trustworthy or skilled enough to provide good service and actually do you some good. If this happens, you are running the risk of not only having a ruined day but even suffering some injury as there are many stories of beauty treatments gone wrong causing disfigurements. Keep them in mind when you evaluate a beautician.
5 Signs That Show a Beautician Isn’t to Be Trusted
Their workplace doesn’t look hygienic and safe
Is every part of the beautician’s office clean and up to the hygienic standards applied to the industry? Is there a proper place to relax and enjoy yourself while your beautician is working? Are all supplies and tools used by the beautician sanitized and/or sterile?
If you aren’t sure on any of these counts, look for a different professional. Some amount of risk will always exist, but it’s true for everything in life. However, if the place is unsafe by default, getting treatments there is too much of an unnecessary risk. In fact, should anything go wrong, you will have trouble suing for damages as you’ve clearly seen that the place can’t be trusted.
Their knowledge and certificates don’t live up to the promises
Having a great marketing strategy doesn’t make one a great beautician. Therefore, you always have to double-check if the person is actually as good as they promise in their ads. And you need to do this before you actually get a treatment to minimize the risk of injury.
The first thing you should do is to check the beautician’s certificates personally. If they don’t have training proven by an authentic certificate in any of the treatments they offer, go right out the door to look for a better professional.
But even having a certificate isn’t 100% guarantee that the person actually knows what they are doing. Therefore, you should go a step further and ask them about the treatment in detail. Of course, you’ll need to research it in-depth first so you understand if the answers are reasonable or evasive. This will take time, but with your looks on the line understanding the treatment and its inherent risks is imperative.
They are bad at communication
A beautician is a person who needs to be not only a “technician” performing treatments but also your advisor who will help you learn how to enhance your beauty at home. If the person doing this job is bad at communications, you will have trouble connecting and understanding each other. This means that the efficiency of these visits will reduce significantly.
You will be able to get the treatments, but without proper communication you moth have trouble explaining what it is that you need exactly. And the whole session can become a trial, in general, if you don’t enjoy the company. After all, you need to trust your beautician and it will be hard to do this if you can’t even have a decent conversation with them.
They aren’t punctual
Is your beautician late or rushing you because they have another appointment coming in? This might be excusable if it happens once as emergencies can happen to anyone. But if it’s a recurring situation, it shows that the beautician is unprofessional and unorganized.
These aren’t the qualities a highly-qualified expert in their field should have. The final decision is, of course, yours to make. But it will be best to switch to a more responsible professional.
They are trying to squeeze more money out of you
Prices raising without reason and annoying promotion of products from the companies that sponsor the beautician are troubling signs. It’s perfectly understandable that the person doing your facial wants to make money and it’s also normal for them to partner with various beauty companies.
However, they should retain their professionalism and not try to push those products onto you or to cheat you through price raises. If you feel like they do, start looking for a better beautician.
