Why Men should be Getting Manicures 2022
Our hands are some of the most overworked parts of our bodies. We use them every day for cooking, cleaning, fixing, typing, building, and an assortment of other things that can leave them worse for wear. Men and women alike have this on their plates, so it would prove to reason that both deserve a moment of pampering for their overworked hands. So why not come around to your nearest PR at Partners Salon for a Gentleman's Manicure?
Benefits of a Manicure
There are many benefits to getting a manicure. For one thing, setting aside time to treat yourself is good to relieve stress. But for another, it’s hygienic and healthy to care for your nails. Professional manicurists can help keep your nails uniform, prevent ingrown nails, and a manicure done right can help increase their strength to keep them from getting brittle and breaking. Most manicurists will also use an exfoliant or lotion, and massaging that into your hands promotes circulation in the applied area. Increased blood flow to the extremities means that during colder months your hands will feel warmer- so as you can see, manicures are about much more than acrylic nails and colorful polish. They’re about keeping your hands in working condition, so you don’t get any painful hangnails, cracked and dry hands, or have tough calluses build up on your palms.
What to Expect
During a session the manicurist will start with a disinfectant such as a hand sanitizer, then begin cleaning, cutting, and shaping your nails. They will be cut and filed to your desired length and shape. Afterward, your manicurist will then start cutting off dead cuticles. To do this, a softener will be applied before they’re removed. Then they will be buffed- or, polished. This smooths the nail down to a finish and will leave them uniform and shiny. Depending on your manicurist, this will be the last step if you don’t want your nails painted, but a good one will have one final step up their sleeve- the simple application of hand lotion. This can be to add moisture back to your hands if they’ve had to use a polish remover or simply to keep your hands from getting chapped and sore. If you would like, they can also add polish to your nails, which can serve a larger purpose than just looking pretty. The right polish can actually help strengthen brittle nails, so they won’t break as easily, or if you struggle with biting your nails there are clear coat options to help deter your habit. Overall in the end you can expect to walk out of our salon with well-groomed and presentable hands.
