How do you feel when you look in the mirror? Does the image you see match the mental image you have of yourself? Is your hair ok? Are your eyes looking bright and well defined? Does your style match your personality? The questions can be endless when it is a question of your looks. Style and beauty can be very personal and at the same time also keep up with the trends and fashions. True this statement sounds contradictory in itself but it applies to how you groom yourself and present yourself just the way it applies to your clothes. Everyone has their own beauty style and getting it right is very important. It is important not just for how other people perceive you, it is important for your own self esteem!

When it is a question of finding your own personal beauty style, the obvious first step is recognising your skin type, your hair type and your body type. This is best done by professionals who have the trained eye and the scientific knowledge to back it up. The right salon can work wonders here. Apart from finding the right salon to give you precious advice on the matter, here are a few simple tips. The first thing to do is to play up your best features. Analyze what features of yours you like best. Does everyone praise your eyes or the curve of your neck or your cheek bones or…? Focusing on the features you are proud of can make the job a whole lot easier. Never neglect your eyes! Everyone you meet is going to look at your eyes. This is one feature you cannot hide and you should not either! Use a good eye cream to moisturize the area around your eyes. Keep your eyebrows neat and well-shaped. The results could amaze you. Never be afraid to experiment. Try on different looks. You never know when you may stumble on that perfect signature beauty style!

It always helps to have a style icon. Remember that feeling of “I want to look like this” you got when you looked at someone? Could have been a movie star or someone you know. Trust your instincts when you get that feeling. Using a similar style and products could be what you were always waiting to do. Finally, take good care of your skin. Yes, beauty (and style) are more than just skin deep but skin is still one of the first things people notice about you. Maintain a good cleansing and moisturizing regimen that keeps your skin young and fresh. Glowing skin always adds volumes to your beauty and style. All said and done, finding your personal beauty style can be an amalgamation of many things. What works for you in terms of time in the mornings or the products that you prefer or getting out of your comfort zone or just falling back on tried and tested methods. Whatever it is, always remember to play up your best features, keep your skin glowing and eyes well cared for. Never neglect getting the right professional help.

Ever wondered how professional makeup artists are able to give that perfect finish and achieve the right look? Of course they are backed by years of training and experience and know how to analyse skin type, hair type etc. They also receive specific training on what kind of look suits what occasion and so on. If you have always wanted to get a more professional finish to your makeup and look, this article is what you need. Happy to share the 5 most important beauty secrets from professional makeup artists:

• The first step you must not skip is using a moisturizer that is right for your skin. Before beginning to apply makeup, moisturize liberally to give your skin a dewy glow and improve the tone and texture of even dull or tired looking skin.
• Use peach or apricot toned primer before applying foundation. The tint of colour in these toned primers is perfectly suited for even darker skin tones and can hide pigmentation or dark circles effectively.
• Apply a light coat of translucent face powder over the primer to lock it in and then use a beauty blender to apply foundation over this. Use a makeup brush and brush over your face in a light downward motion to ensure any baby hairs lay flat against the skin.
• For a luminous and “lit from within” glow, apply your cream blush or bronzer or highlighter underneath the foundation. You will be surprised how effective this little trick is!
• When applying lipstick, begin with a nude lipliner, apply a layer of lipstick over this, use a tissue to blot, apply a light dusting of translucent powder and repeat the process to get in two or three layers of lipstick. This will last you all day!

These simple tips are easy to follow and can elevate your makeup to that professional level on a daily basis! However, do keep in mind that the quality of the products you use and your skin-type play an important part. Always use good quality products that are right for your skin. Sticking closer to natural products is always better.

Make-up, cosmetics and beauty products are very personal to every woman. It can be so hard to find the perfect shade and brand of nail polish that does not chip off easily or the perfect foundation that works magic on your skin or even the perfect mascara that makes your eyes so special. Once you have found it, you want to stick with it. What would happen if you have an occasion coming up and your foundation bottle is almost empty and simply are not able to get a replacement on time? It can be so frustrating to see the level of product just below the pump tube and you need it now!

For just such situations, here are a few simple but ingenious hacks to help make your high-end beauty products last longer. Beauty products are usually packaged to look attractive and often a lot of product is wasted because it is stuck at the bottom of a bottle or a tube. Use a spatty to make sure you use your precious product up to the last drop! To make foundation last longer, always use a beauty blender sponge when applying foundation. This way you use less and get a flawless finish too. Always refrigerate masks and creams. This not only feels wonderful on your skin but also stays preserved for longer.

When there is just a little bit of conditioner left and not really enough for a full conditioning treatment, don’t throw the bottle away. Add a little water to it, shake it up well and use as a lighter conditioning treatment! You can even add a few drops of moisturizer to your favourite foundation if you are at the bottom of the bottle and find yourself in a pinch. Another great hack to save mascara that is going dry and getting clumpy is to add in a few drops of saline solution. It is safe and sterile and can refresh your mascara as good as new! Last bit of the perfect nail polish shade that you want to wear? Add in a few drops of thinner to create magic. You can also use the last bit of lipstick as a blush for fabulous moisturized shiny cheek bones with a perfect hint of color.
Go ahead, get the most out of your high-end beauty products. Try these simple hacks to make them last longer!

In this article we will list a few simple and easy steps for getting started with nail art. Like every other creative endeavour you take on, this too requires a certain amount of perseverence and dedication. The first thing every beginner needs to get the right start is the right set of tools. So here is a list of materials and tools you will need – a good base and top coat, brushes, nail cutters, nail files, buffers, cuticle removers, reinforcement stickers, rhinestones and embellishments, striping tape, nail art pens and nail stamps. You can buy these online or at a specialist store, choose whatever appeals to you and get started building your collection.
Applying a good base coat is very important for the final finish you get. It not only helps the nail polish stick better to your nails but also smoothes over imperfections to give you the perfect coat. It is also important to have a good variety of colours in nail polish, glossy and matt, and a good variety of embellishments to get that professional look to your design. Don’t despair if you cannot have everything overnight, get started and build your collection.
Finally, you have everything you need but you cannot think of a design you want… This too can happen but it is not the end of the world. There is inspiration available everywhere. Physically around you or online. You can follow a good nail art blogger or you can simply look up nail art designs online. You can invest in some nail art books which come packed with information, ideas and pictures. Remember- where there is a will there is a way! Where there is a nail, there can be art!!

Our skin is our first line of defense. It is the largest organ in our body and it protects every other organ against the environment. In every condition, hot or cold, dry or wet, it is our skin that takes the first hit. Our skin is also one of the first things about our external appearance that everybody notices. Good skin is a coveted feature. Flawless glowing skin is everyone’s dream. It is important to take good care of your skin and give it the right nourishment and care. In order to do this, the first step to take is to get to know your skin. There are many skin types and skin can be as unique as the wearer. So first you must identify whether your skin is dry or normal or oily or combination skin.

The simplest way to identify dry skin is to pay attention to how your skin feels when it is cleansed and left bare. If your skin feels tight and stretched, it is a reliable indicator of dry skin. Flakiness is also an indicator of dry skin. The best way to care for dry skin is to use a good quality rich moisturiser after a gentle round of exfoliation. Daily gentle exfoliation is vital to ensure that the top layer of dead cells are gone and any serum or lotion that you apply is properly absorbed.

Normal to combination skin can be identified if you experience dryness in the cheeks but the T-Zone remains shiny. Daily gentle exfoliation followed by a good gel moisturiser is good for this type of skin. Ensure that you do not use any product that is too strong or too rich as this can eventually lead to the dryness because the skin will stop producing the normal amount of oil. If you suspect that you have oily skin, the best way to confirm this is by gently pressing blotting paper on your skin and holding it up to the light. If you see patches of oiliness, there you have it – oily skin. Again it is important to ensure that your pores do not get clogged with oily excretions, so it is important to follow a daily gentle exfoliation routine. Use a light moisturiser of good quality to keep your skin hydrated. Oily skin tends to look young for longer and develop less wrinkles and is the most coveted skin type, but it does need its share of care too. Eating right, drinking lots of water and getting plenty of exercise in fresh air is the best way to care for all skin types, so make sure you work these necessities into your lifestyle! Happy skin to you!

Business is back as usual post the pandemic, yet the fear resides in everyone goes to the doors of any of the hair salons in town. The customers are clouded with curiosity, eagerness and fear as they step into the salon. Though these are not crowded places, it requires intimate interaction with the client and hence maintaining social distancing becomes a challenge. Just like every challenge has a solution, the pandemic situations have forced the best hair salons to put on their thinking hats to come up with safe practices for reopening their salons.

Here are some trends that are likely to dominate this year

  • This 2021 we are going to see a lot of minimal makeup while maintain the natural texture of the skin. This means wearing less makeup and spending on skin care. Keeping the skin healthy as ever is the key to beauty.
  • French manicure may rule the roost, ranging from funky mushrooms, butterflies, smiley and floral designs. The intricate designs are left to the nail artists at Page3Salon.
  • With mask covering half your face, your eye becomes the mirror of your mood. Playing with glitters or random colours are going to be the trend this year. Bold colours or classic cat eyes are going to dominate the scene.
  • Pinterest saw knotless box braids and yarn braid styles trending in 2020. This year as a continuation, these styles are sure to be the talk of the town.
  • Curtain bangs are to be the shaping cuts of 2021. These are low maintenance stuff, yet with a flattering appeal. Moreover it is a safe way to keep your look upbeat.

Page3 Salon has adapted newer techniques to improve the hygiene and sanitation in their space. They avoid gathering people and sterilize all equipment’s that are reused. As much as possible disposable items are used for the protection of the clients. Anything that cannot be sterilized is taken out of the scene, like magazines or newspapers. The salon strictly maintains government guidelines to ensure the business is as usual. Between appointments sufficient gap is given to sanitize the place after one client leaves and before the other enters.

To “box” or not to “box”? Box colour Vs Salon colour – Everything you must know.

“Lustrous Locks” and “Crowning Glory” are phrases that will never go out of fashion. They are inevitably used when describing the physical appearance of a person. Hair is always noticed. Given these facts, would you compromise on the health or styling of your hair? Of course not! There are umpteen brands and even more shades of box colours available easily in the market. Don’t fall for the temptation and the convenience. Chances are you can end up with glowing roots and darker patches and blotchy colour in unwanted tones. The finish you can get from a professional salon colourist is something you can never match with a DIY “box” colour.

“Lustrous Locks” and “Crowning Glory” are phrases that will never go out of fashion. They are inevitably used when describing the physical appearance of a person. Hair is always noticed. Given these facts, would you compromise on the health or styling of your hair? Of course not! There are umpteen brands and even more shades of box colours available easily in the market. Don’t fall for the temptation and the convenience. Chances are you can end up with glowing roots and darker patches and blocthy colour in unwanted tones. The finish you can get from a professional salon colourist is something you can never match with a DIY “box” colour.

Professional colourists at salons undergo years of study to reach a level where they can analyse your hair including condition, health and texture, and cater to your needs exactly. They are trained to come up with the right formula to suit your hair. One client might only need a 3% peroxide mixture while another might need a 6% peroxide mixture. The professional at the salon can calculate this but a box colour is more of a one size fits all with a uniform 12% peroxide mixture which could overwhelm the health of your hair. Not only this, trained personnel can achieve an even application. You can get access to the right bonding additives for your hair when you go professional. a professional will consider everything from the health of your hair to your skintone to your eye colour to your lifestyle and personality before mixing the right hair colour for you. No “one size fits all” approach here!

Agreed, it is easy to be deceived by the fabulous model with the perfect colour on the box but only a professional application will achieve the right colour saturation and absorption that is needed for that fabulous finish. Long term use of box colour can be extremely detrimental to the health of your hair, leaving it feeling dry and dull. Salon colour keeps hair health intact and does not damage hair with unnecessarily strong chemicals. Where cost is concerned, the longevity of salon colour almost evens out the cost as multiple applications of box colour would be needed to last that long!

Choose wisely and choose right. Salon colour over box colour anyday!

Why is foot reflexology good for the human body?

We live in a world where stress is more common than peace and well-being. Most people are so busy chasing the good life that they completely forget to take care of their most precious possession, which is their health and well-being. This leads to many stress related disorders which lead to more complicated health problems and this is where it is important to realize why foot reflexology is so good for the human body. Though this form of therapy has only now become a common and popular practice, it is hardly a modern invention.

Foot reflexology is an ancient form of therapy and there is evidence that it was practiced in China and Egypt for thousands of years. All parts of our body are interconnected and to stimulate the functioning of our organs we can use reflexology techniques and apply pressure or massage strategic “pressure points” of the foot. When opting for such treatment, it is very important to choose a qualified, trained and licensed practitioner of foot reflexology. This can ensure that the treatment you get will give you the benefits you require.

There are innumerable reasons why foot reflexology is so good for the human body. Massaging or stimulating strategic pressure points of the foot can improve circulation and overall organ function, making you healthy and stress free. This helps in promoting a sense of well-being and helps you relax. Foot reflexology promotes good sleep. Quality not quantity is important in the case of sleep and reflexology techniques can ensure you get good quality sleep. General body pain and fatigue can be alleviated using reflexology. It is a great mood booster and can even help combat depression. Foot reflexology can be used effectively to get rid of edema (swelling due to fluid accumulation). Choose the right practitioner of this therapy and enjoy great health!

How our salons are corona free?

These are uncertain times; we are confronting an unknown enemy. The beauty industry is facing the biggest challenges of all times as everything here depends on physical touch and working in close quarters. With the government closing down schools, colleges, malls and social gatherings to prevent the spread of the virus our salons in all locations have taken precautions to keep the salon functioning.

The primary measure is to allay the fears and concerns of the customers and imbibe confidence in them. What makes matters worse is the ability of the virus to survive for long duration on surfaces. Which means a non-infected person touching a contaminated surface could be exposed to the threat. Some of the steps we have taken to keep our salons corona free are below:

  1. We sanitize the space after every use with anti-disinfectants and hand sanitizers. We wipe the salon chairs and stations with disinfectant after every appointment. Door handles, phones and tools are sanitized regularly as disinfectant can break the envelope around the microbe and make it harmless.
  2. We have placed hand sanitizers at the waiting lounge, front desk, salon station to encourage clients to use it whenever they enter the salon and while inside. Corona virus can be eliminated with 60% alcohol and hand sanitizers are one of the best options.
  3. Social distancing of atleast 1m distance is crucial to prevent the spread of the virus. On this account all salon employees are asked to wear masks to contain the virus. Moreover, the staff are educated on how to dispose the masks safely too.
  4. We have ensured air purifiers are kept in salons for circulation of clean air.

We stand committed to our customers. Embrace healthy lifestyle and live safe!
