PediStil - The Comfortable Way to Perform Pedicures

As a nail technician, one of the more strenuous aspects of your line of work is the foot exfoliation and callus removal during a pedicure. In addition to the rigorous scrubbing and scrapping, you are also holding the the full weight of your client's leg, which is extremely unwieldy.

An excellent product to reduce your straining and over-exertion during a pedicure is the Pedistil Foot & Leg Rest. Lightweight and chemical resistant, the PedStil is perfect for placing on the edge of your pedicure chair and having your client rest his or her leg on it. It becomes much easier to maneuver around the foot, plus it makes the whole experience more comfortable for you and your client!

Have you ever used a footrest for your clients during a pedicure? What features did you like?

Salon Must Have: Hair Steamer

Hair steamers are quickly gaining popularity, and it is easy to see why. A hair steamer is like a sauna for the scalp and hair: it encases the head in a warm cloud of steam, opening the hair follicles to better absorb treatments, while cleaning the scalp and loosening dirt, product build-up, and dead skin cells.

Hair steamers are often used in a salon to perform deep conditioning treatments, protein treatments, and even color treatments.

Benefits of Hair Steaming
  • Better Scalp Circulation
  • Moisturizes Scalp and Root of Hair
  • Minimizes Breakage
  • Opens the Hair Follicle to Better Absorb Products
  • Helps Hair Absorb Color More Thoroughly
  • Speeds up Treatment Processing Time
  • Results in Softer, Shinier Hair
Professional Hair Steamers are available on rolling stands, perfect if you are interested in adding a hair steamer to your equipment, but are working with limited space. With Pure Spa Direct's wide offering, we have a hair steamer perfect for every salon! If you are just opening or remodeling, we also have wall-mounted hair steamers!

Help your clients have long, beautiful, healthy hair! What treatments do you use a hair steamer for?
