It's Sandal Season!

Sandal season means one thing: it's time for a pedicure! At Barbizon of Akron, we love for all of our students and alums to look and feel healthy all around. That's why we know the importance of healthy (and pretty) looking feet! Read below for the who, what, when and where of pedicures!

Who: Anybody! Pedicures are great for men and women, boys and girls! The young, the old and those in between! Pedicures are relaxing for everyone, and who doesn't love being pampered?

What: People have been receiving pedicures for over 4,000 years! In 3,000 BC, toe nail color was a sign of status in Chinese communities, where pedicures first began. Royal finger nails were often painted black and red. Today, a pedicure is a service that, while relaxing, improves the overall look of your feet and toenails. They can even prevent certain nail diseases and disorders. During the procedure, feet will be
soaked, dead skin cells will be sloughed off feet with a pumice stone or scrub, feet will be moisturized, toe nails will be filed and painted. By the time the procedure is over, you will have dazzling, fresh looking feet that are baby soft!

When: Anytime! Spring and summer are busy times for pedicures with it being sandal weather, but we promise, pampering yourself is always in style! Do it on your lunch break, do it while the kids are at soccer practice, do it with some of your friends before a girl's (or guy's) night out! Yes, pedicures are great for men too!

Where: Kim Blankenship- Nail Tech Extraordinaire at Georgie Salon & Spa! Kim is a true professional and understands what REAL relaxation is all about... Foot massages! Try her once and you'll see what makes her (and her services) so special! Added bonus: All Pro-Model & Talent Mgmt. and Barbizon of Akron members receive 20% off of services! This is also extended to family members, so if you're a parent waiting on your child to have their hair done, pamper yourself while you wait!

We at Barbizon of Akron can't wait to see all of the open-toed shoes and sandals that will be walking through the door this summer with great looking feet! It's always nice when you can wear any shoe with confidence, and getting a pedicure is the perfect way to ensure that feeling. So, set a date for your next pedicure and remember to regularly pamper yourself! Shine on, Barbizon of Akron!
