Is it just us here at Beautify Salon and Spa, or is Spring sneaking up on us this year? It seems like just last week that we were bundled up from the cold and the wind-oh wait… maybe that WAS last week!
The first official day of Spring (this year) is March 19th. Cue the flowers, the melting snow, the “new love” feeling in the air.
*sigh*…. It is inevitable, and it is on our doorstep. So what does that mean for you?
It isn’t just about cleaning up the garage or planting flowers. It is also a time to Spring clean ourselves (so-to-speak), and get ourselves prepped for the changing season.
Here are some things that we, and Beautify Salon and Spa in Henderson, recommend you do for yourself this Spring so that you can transition just as easily as everything around you.
This doesn’t have to mean camping in the back-country, surrounded by campfire smoke and mosquitos (although, if you like doing that, more power to ya, girl!).
Spring is a perfect time to get fresh air. ESPECIALLY if you live in a place like Las Vegas.
In most cases, spring is the only time desert-climate dwellers can enjoy the outdoors without the extreme temperatures– and without having to get up at the butt-crack of dawn to enjoy the outdoors before the sun heats it up like an oven.
Getting outdoors is actually really good for your body, and we are all about taking good care of our bodies.
The outdoors can boost energy naturally. Sunlight can help with pain, stress, and boost your vitamin D.
That fresh air, sunlight, and spring foliage can even fight symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder (ever wonder why you might feel anxious, sad, or depressed when the season changes?).
SAD is an actual thing, and spending time outside while the season is changing, can help your mind transition more easily into Spring.
Take a walk or a hike a few times a week. Volunteer to walk dogs at a local animal shelter (being outdoors is just as good for our furry friends as it is for you), have a picnic, plant some flowers (okay, cliche, but it will probably feel really good to do this!). Just get outside and enjoy nature!
Your mind and body will thank you.
Shed Some of That Hair!
Now that you are starting to pack away your scarves and gloves, you can also do what most animals do in spring, and lose some extra fur (or, er….hair!).
With the hot summer months ahead, you don’t want to be walking around with extra hair clinging to your neck. You’ve been dying to get that hair cut or trimmed, and now is a perfect time to do it!
Whether you are male or female, a hair cut will leave you feeling a little more weightless, and also a bit cooler.
At Beautify Salon and Spa in Henderson, we offer a variety of hair cut, styling, and dying services to fit your spring plans.
Lets not forget about losing some of that facial hair! Yes, we all have it (not just the men).
We’re not just talking about the hair on your chin and upper lip, but also your eyebrows! The winter has had our faces as overgrown as Paul Bunyan, and it is time to clear that forest!!
Luckily, our salon also offers facial waxing services! Shaving facial hair gets the job done, but waxing lasts so much longer and leaves your skin feeling smooth and stubble-free.
Embrace A New Look
Your coats are packed away, your boots are now at the back of your closet (as you shed a tear, not knowing when you’ll get the chance to wear those beauties again).
Now….what to wear? GASP Where did all your Spring clothes go? Did you donate them to charity? Did you give them away to a family member or friend?
It doesn’t matter. You simply don’t have enough to wear. New Spring means new life, new beginnings, and NEW YOU!
This is the perfect time to change your look. Bring back those floral patterns, the baby blues, the pinks, the pastels. It is IN, and whether you’re a thrifty gal, or need the latest trends at your favorite retailer, there’s no time like Spring to go out shopping for a look that is YOU.
Don’t forget, a good mani/Pedi can also help complement your wardrobe. We at Beautify Salon and Spa are more than thrilled to help your nails accentuate your style.
By “house” we mean your bathroom. It is easy for women to accumulate excess beauty supplies that we will likely never use. This causes clutter, lack of storage space, and frustration.
We’ve all tried to find that one thing we swore we had but can’t find, because it is probably buried in a box of eyeshadows and hotel shampoos that we’ll never use again. If this scenario sounds familiar to you, it’s time to get rid of (or donate) some of that junk!
We know you don’t want to part with some of these things, but think about how often you actually use some of the items buried in your cabinets. Not a lot, right? Would it help you to know that your excess beauty supplies can help women in need?
If you have any unused or unopened products, you can donate them to https://beautybus.org/ which is an organization that provides spa and beauty services to people with terminal illnesses which prevent them from visiting salons.
There are also a few organizations that accept gently used products, such as http://www.projectbeautyshare.org/what-to-give which distributes donated products to over a dozen non-profit organizations committed to helping women and families who suffer from abuse, addiction, homelessness, and poverty.
How amazing is that!?! You can clean up your clutter for a cause.
Feels a bit easier to let some things go knowing you are helping someone in need, right? And who knew Spring cleaning could feel so…. good!?
Bring It On, Spring!
Now that you have a renewed outlook on Spring, it is time to put your plans into action! At Beautify Salon and Spa in Henderson, we are excited to help you take on Spring in any way that we can.
Whether you take on a mountain or walk around the block, cut your hair short or freshen up with a trim, overhaul your wardrobe or add a few new looks, toss unnecessary products out or donate them to the greater good.
Do your body, mind, and soul a favor and find something to welcome yourself into the Spring.
