It’s time for a Spring spruce-up – from head to toe!

From haircuts to pedicures, here’s what to keep in mind for warmer weather

With spring officially here, it’s time to throw off winter and embrace a lighter, brighter new look … from head to toe!

From a fresh look for your locks to a beach-perfect pedi, here’s how to get ready for the sunny days to come.

Why it’s time for a haircut:

One of the best ways to prepare your hair for a season of sunshine and saltwater is with a trim, says Raj Randhawa, owner of White Rock’s Uptown Salon & Spa. A trim every 4 to 6 weeks will keep your hair in great shape – especially after winter’s drying temps bringing split ends and breakages. Not only will it encourage new growth, it will leave your hair feeling fresh, smooth and shiny. And if it’s truly time for a fresh start, ask about ideas for a new ‘do!

You might consider hair removal:

If you’re looking forward to spending more time on the beach or by the water, hair removal services offer a fuss-free way to do it. Take advantage of their waxing or, for longer lasting results, opt for their Venus Versa Hair Removal, which uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) with SmartPulse technology to reduce unwanted facial and boy hair. And, you’re just in time to take advantage of Spring specials, so enjoy those savings!

How to update your skincare:

Sunscreen should be worn year round, but is especially important as you’re spending more time in the sun, Raj notes.

By choosing a medical-grade tinted SPF lotion, you can both protect your skin from harmful UV rays and knock a step off your morning routine, since you can skip the foundation!

If you’re looking to give an even bigger boost to your routine, microblading your eyebrows can be a real time-saver. This semi-permanent technique leaves you with fuller brows, so there’s no need to touch them up throughout the day. Even better, Uptown Salon & Spa is currently offering 20 per cent off permanent make-up!

Facials for a fresh face:

To greet Spring with a fresh face, a HydraFacial can help create glowing, radiant skin.

And last – but definitely not least – transitioning into open-toed shoe season means it’s the perfect time to treat yourself to a pedicure.

Boasting more than 20 years of experience, Uptown Salon & Spa puts you in good hands – they’re your one-stop-shop for all your beauty needs. If you’re ready to set yourself up for Spring, contact Uptown Salon & Spa to book your appointment today!
