For many years, I have been going to nail salons to have a pedicure. I move around a lot in my job, so I don't have a favourite nail salon. I go when I need to wherever I am. I just arrive and get attended to. I very rarely have to wait. So it was with some surprise when I went to a salon in Caloundra recently and I was asked if I had an appointment. I had arrived at 9 am as they were opening and several other women entered with me. They laughed when I expressed surprise. This salon is in high demand they told me. However, I was welcomed in and attended to immediately.
My first surprise was how modern the salon was. The pedicure chairs always have a back massage function, but my chair also massaged my buttocks. They are the lastest chairs. Usually, all the staff in nail salons are Vietnamese, but here there were a few local girls too, all smartly dressed in lovely uniforms. As soon as anyone entered the salon, they were immediately attended to by one of the staff, even though they were working.
As I have been attending these salons for many years, I know when I get a good therapist. The girl who attended me was very experienced and attentive to detail. She made sure my nails were perfect before she painted them in my choice of nail varnish. She gave me a very good foot and leg massage using a skin scrub. Wow.
