Planning your perfect spa party can be overwhelming, but with our top seven spa party planning ideas, there will be something to get you started. Whether it’s mani-pedis, facials, or even a massage, we’ll help you plan the best treatments for your spa party.

Mani-Pedis

A mani-pedi treatment is one of the best ideas for your next spa party. It’s easy to fit around any sized group and can be enjoyed by both men and women. If you’re hosting your party on a budget, select either a manicure or a pedicure instead of both. You could also ask your guests to pick their preferences. Mani-pedis are great for your nail health and are an excellent way to unwind from the stresses of work. It will also give you a confidence boost and helps the circulation in your fingers or toes. You can get mani-pedis with a group of co-workers, bridesmaids, or even in mixed-gender groups. A manicure involves exfoliating, moisturizing, and nail care. You can also add style elements, such as a French Manicure, shellac nails, or acrylic nails. If you’re organizing a bridal manicure, consider getting matching manicures just before the wedding.

You can even get manicures for men, so there’s no need to leave your male companions out. Male manicures can help you relax, as well as improve nail and skin health. Taking excellent care of your hands by having regular manicures can improve your self-esteem and leave you with younger-looking hands.

Facials

Facials are a fun, soothing way to relax with your loved ones. You can choose from a wide range of facials and peels, and all of them offer nourishing, moisturizing benefits for your skin. At Mitchell’s, we offer several types of facial treatments, including:

  • Signature Euphoria Spa Facial
  • Deluxe Euphoria with Microcurrent
  • Sensitive Skin CBD Facial
  • Herbal Poultice Contouring Facial Treatment
  • Express Spa Facial
  • Gentlemen’s Treatment Facial

 

Getting a facial helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and can help repair sun damage. Some acne types improve with facials or peels, and you may even see a reduction in freckles or other blemishes. If you’re booking a peel, you’ll need to prepare in advance, as the treatment will require a consultation first. However, attending your consultations together can be another way to get together and receive some TLC. Getting a face peel will usually cause your skin to flake and peel off, but don’t worry if your peel doesn’t flake straight away. Some peels take longer than others for the skin to start peeling, and others won’t peel very much. Some of the benefits of peels are deep hydration, scar smoothing, pigmentation correction, and more.

Massage

Everyone loves a massage, and your spa party wouldn’t be complete without one. If a simple body massage doesn’t appeal, check out the full range of offerings at Mitchell’s. We offer everything from hot stone treatment to aromatherapy massage. Whatever you decide, you’re sure to get the perfect massage experience from Mitchell’s. If you’re hosting a spa party for co-workers, why not try our anti-stress massage or even a CBD-Infused Full Body Therapeutic Massage. We offer a 20-minute remedy, perfect for fitting in more of your nearest and dearest. Massages are the ideal unisex spa treatment, as both men and women can relax and enjoy the tranquility. If anyone in your party is pregnant, there’s no need for them to miss out. Check out our Maternity Massages, which come in 30 or 60-minute sessions. It’s the perfect gift for any expecting mother and ensures they don’t have to miss out on your spa party. Our Herbal Poultice Body Treatment is excellent for those aching muscles after a stressful period at work, and it’s suitable for everyone, including men. Herbal Poultices can help relieve inflammation, improve skin texture, and offer many other benefits.

Body Treatments

A full range of body treatments is available at Mitchell’s, and we offer several types of massage. Some of the body treatments we offer include:

  • Seventh Heaven Full Body Treatment and Vichy Shower
  • Salt Glow Body Scrub and Vichy Shower
  • Seaweed Body Treatment
  • Caribbean Sugar Glow Treatment
  • Airbrush Tan

Body treatments offer several benefits, like chronic pain relief, improved circulation, and more confidence. Somebody treatment types can flush toxins, and all body treatments are excellent for relaxation and stress reduction. Most body treatments use mineral pastes, which offer excellent benefits to the skin. A body treatment can be a great way to restore your skin or banish aches and pains. If you suffer from dry skin, a body treatment is an excellent way to treat it. Some of our body treatments come from the sea, so if you’re a fan of the ocean and want to include it in your spa party, check out our body treatment range. Sea salt offers many benefits to the skin, including cleansing the pores, and balancing oil production.

Salon Gift Cards

Our beautiful spas offer many premium products that you can purchase as party favors or allow your guests to shop on the day of. You can also buy gift certificates or spa days as gifts for friends as a way of ensuring your loved ones can return to experience our spa treatments again.

Men or Women Salon Services

If you’re organizing a spa party for a mixed group, or even a group of men, there is plenty to offer, such as unisex mani-pedis. Men enjoy the relaxation of pedicures and massages just as much as women and anyone can reap the benefits of spa treatments. When you’re planning your party, consider asking your guests which treatments they’d feel comfortable with and if anyone has a problem with a male guest joining them. Some men are uncomfortable with spa treatments, especially while with other men, and may prefer not to attend. However, many men enjoy our male massages and pedicures, and there’s no reason not to invite your male colleagues to your spa party. If you have close male friends who don’t want to miss out, consider inviting them for a simple male pedicure. An all-female spa party is an excellent choice for pre-wedding treatments or bachelorette parties. Check out our excellent bachelorette party packages for some fantastic deals on your spa party.

Planning a corporate event can be tricky. On one hand, you want to please everyone. You also want to stick to your scheduled time and budget. Have you considered a corporate spa party?

There are many benefits to having a spa party for employees and/or clients. Here are five to consider.

  1. Something for Everyone: With corporate retreats, there’s always at least one person who can’t wait to leave. That doesn’t seem to happen with corporate spa parties. There are treatments for everyone, from massage and mani-pedis to facials and more. You might have to push people out the door by the time the event ends.
  2. A Soothing Environment: When you choose a spa party for your corporate event, your guests get to enjoy a day of unabashed pampering. The whole event takes place in a private area that is positive and conducive to relaxation. What a way to boost company morale! Your guests will leave feeling recharged with regards to mind, body, and soul.
  3. Ideal for Coworkers and Clients Alike: Coworkers can get to know each other better during corporate spa parties. There’s something about being pampered that tends to break the ice, leading to better comradery. Client schmoozing can also be performed at a corporate spa event, leading to improved loyalty and stronger accounts.
  4. Easy to Book: To make booking the spa party easier on the person doing all the planning, most spas offer the services of a Spa Events Manager, who can walk you through the process of planning your party while also keeping the event on track from the beginning to end.
  5. Chances to Save: Spa party packages can help you save on the overall costs. These packages come with certain spa amenities built-in, taking the pressure off the party planner to put the perfect, all-inclusive retreat together.

When it comes to how to structure your corporate spa party, the sky’s the limit. You can design a corporate team-building retreat or engage in client appreciation. Corporate parties are excellent on their own as a way to incentivize employees to do their best, and to reward hard workers for jobs well done.

If you’re not sure of what spa and salon treatments to include with your party, here are a few ideas to consider.

Corporate Spa Party Services for Every Guest on Your List

Therapeutic Massage

Overstressed party goers will appreciate a thirty-minute to an hour-long therapeutic massage. Massage treatments help with blood circulation and can improve health. That’s good news for the corporation as a whole. Healthier employees perform better, so it’s a good idea to include massage services at your spa party for a win-win all around.

Manicures

Your guests might appreciate a little nail care to go with their massage. Manicure services can be booked for both men and women. Everyone loves having more attractive nails. Manicures also make nails stronger and give the wearer smoother, younger-looking hands.

Pedicures

While you’re treating your guests’ hands and fingernails, why not throw in some foot and toenail care while you’re at it? Our feet work hard all day long. Pedicures treat the feet and toes with the attention they deserve. Choose between a signature whirlpool pedicure, extended-wear gel pedicure, or a manicure and pedicure combination. Pedicures can be topped off with the color of polish your guests may desire, or they can go with a clear-coat if that’s the style they prefer.

Facials

Our faces are among the first things people notice about us. Faces are also constantly exposed to the elements and are one of the first body parts to show our true age. Both the men and women on your guest list can benefit by incorporating facials at your corporate spa party.

Facial treatments employ specialized techniques and all-natural formulas to soothe and rejuvenate the skin. Your guests will be left with brighter, clearer skin by the time your corporate event ends.

Body Treatments

You can’t treat the face without incorporating the body. That’s where spa body treatments come in. A body treatment uses unique ingredients like sea salt and seaweed wraps to invigorate skin and soothe tired muscles. Some body treatments involve tanning and other add-ons to further enhance beauty and health.

Makeup Application

Makeup treatments can help your employees try new cosmetics on for size. The makeup artist in attendance can also teach them new tricks to hide blemishes and create better contours. Makeup application services can help your guests improve their appearance and self-esteem while boosting comradery among them.

Hair Services

No corporate event would be complete without hair services like shampoos, haircuts, blowout services, and styling. Corporate spa party goers might want to try a new hairstyle or improve upon their current style with a killer ‘do put together by one of the spa’s master hair designers.

Don’t Worry, the Host Can Enjoy the Party, Too!

There is one more benefit to booking a corporate spa party. The party planner gets to enjoy the pampering, too! Too often the planner gets stuck with all the logistics, making a retreat more work than fun. With corporate Spa events, everyone can relax, including the planner. By working with the Spa Events Manager, all stress involved with the planning process is eliminated, leaving the host to feel just as relaxed and refreshed as the other party-goers.

Every bride wants to appear relaxed and beautiful on her big day. A wedding spa party package is the best way to do it. Not only will you ease your muscles and look your best, but you’ll be able to hang out with all your BFFs prior to the Big Day.
Wedding spa packages contain all the spa treatments needed to make the prewedding period a time to remember. You can start making your memories early while being pampered every step of the way.
There are five good reasons to choose a spa wedding party.

Four Reasons to Choose a Spa Wedding Party

Bonding Time

Wedding parties are often made up of people you’ve met throughout your life. That means that some parties may contain people who have never met before. A spa party is an ideal opportunity to bring everyone together, helping the wedding itself go more smoothly.

Reconnect with Old Friends

For some bridal parties, the bridesmaids are all good friends who haven’t seen each other in some time. Engaging in massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures can give you all time to catch up, swap stories, and give each other updates on how everyone is living and progressing. You might not get the chance during the hustle and bustle of the actual wedding, so get all your chum time in early, at a wedding spa party.

Relax Before the Wedding

Planning a wedding can be stressful. You have to think up a guest list and make sure everyone is sent an invitation. You need to book a banquet hall and catering and have meals planned for meat-eaters, vegetarians, vegans, and any other special groups on your list. There’s also the wedding cake, seating charts, and flowers, oh my! Taking care of yourself prior to your wedding day is so important, not only for the bride but for the bridesmaids as well.

Look Great in Photos

Spa amenities can help you all relax and look fantastic. Imagine posing for photos with clear and beautiful skin. That’s what will happen when you book a wedding spa party complete with facials, massages, manicures, pedicures, and body treatments for everyone who’s invited. You get to choose the amenities you want for a day everyone in the bridal party is sure to remember.

Which Bridal Party Services Will You Choose?

On-Location Bridal Services

This bridal package is for the honoree herself. The package includes bridal hair treatments, makeup services (Mineral makeup or airbrush), bridal party hair, and bridal party makeup. This way, everyone can get primped and polished prior to the nuptials, just in time for the cameras to start flashing.

Hair, Manicure, Massage & Makeup Treatments

For services everyone can enjoy, there are bridal party packages that include hair, manicure, and makeup, and others that only include hair services and manicures or hair and makeup. You can also book a bachelorette spa evening complete with a facial or massage.

Work with a Bridal Beauty Planner

Many spas offer the services of a bridal beauty planner, which helps to make planning a spa party much easier. The bridal planner aims to recommend services that encompass the mind, body, and soul. You will have access to all the amenities you want for the hair, face, skin, nails, and body, all while removing the stress of the party planning process.

Which Day Spa Should You Choose for Your Spa Wedding Party?

When searching for the ideal location for your bridal party, look for a spa that offers all the amenities you want. Read testimonials from other bridal party attendees to determine if the spa has everything you are looking for. Examples of elements you want include an attentive staff, a wide variety of spa and salon services, affordable prices, and ways to save, such as gift certificates, coupons, and special offers. Most importantly, you want to ensure the location has the time that you want available, and enough space to accommodate all of your guests.

Planning a wedding can be stressful, which is why many “friends of the bride” are booking bachelorette parties at nearby spas. 78% of couples report having bachelorette parties, of which an average of ten people attend. Further, nearly half of all polled wedding guests report that having a bachelorette party at a local spa is a great idea!

A spa bachelorette party has many advantages. There is no better way to relax while hanging and giggling with your BFFs. You also get to enjoy the ambient atmosphere while gentle hands and attentive staff tend to your every need. You can make yours a bachelorette party to remember by choosing one or more bachelorette spa packages.

What Are Bachelorette Spa Packages?

Bachelorette spa packages let you plan your one-of-a-kind party from beginning to end. This lets you envision the ultimate getaway, even if you’re only staying in town. Whether you have five, eight, or twelve friends, you can book the perfect bachelorette party by including your favorite spa facilities and amenities.

What Spa Facilities & Amenities are Included?

Facials

Many spas offer an extensive selection of premium facials that can be included with your spa party package. These facials are perfect for making everyone’s skin healthy and radiant in preparation for the big day.

The bride-to-be will especially love this rejuvenating and relaxing spa treatment. Planning a wedding can be tough on the skin. Constant sun exposure and age certainly don’t help. Facials can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles while helping the skin look its best.

Therapeutic Massage

The stress of planning a wedding can also take its toll on the muscles. Bachelorette spa packages that include massage let the bride and friends enjoy a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of wedding planning. A holistic massage is just what the doctor ordered when it comes to restoring the mind, body, and spirit. This is why it’s common for spa parties to include massage along with some extras, like aromatherapy, hot-stone massage, bamboo fusion, and more. By the end of the event, everyone will feel soothed and rejuvenated just in time for the nuptials.

Body Treatments

If you are looking for a way to deepen your relaxation, consider adding body treatments to your spa party package. A salt-glow body scrub, for example, can gently exfoliate and soften the skin from head to toe. Many spas also offer seaweed wraps and tanning treatments to further flush out toxins and deliver your best look.

Full-Day & Half Day Spa Packages

You can make a whole day of your bachelorette party or you can go for a half-day of relaxation and fun. During this time, you get to choose the amenities you most want. These can include all the spa services we just mentioned along with hair treatments and makeup applications. If any of the party-goers have a baby on the way, the full or half-day packages can also include maternity massage.

Imagine being pampered from head to toe. That’s what awaits you, the bachelorette, and the rest of the party when you choose these spa treatments to complete your day.

How to Plan the Ultimate Bachelorette Party in Cincinnati, Ohio

Once you have a good idea of which spa treatments you want, the next step is to contact the Spa Events Manager at your local spa. This individual is responsible for walking you through the booking process. The Events Manager knows all the details about the various spa treatments and how to save using coupons, gift certificates, and certain tricks of the trade, such as booking certain services together during a single event.

The manager also helps to keep your event on track. This lets the bride and whoever is booking the event relax and enjoy the pampering without worrying about the time or when to wrap things up. The goal is for you and your friends to achieve total relaxation, and that’s what the manager’s job is aimed to fulfill.

Tips for Treating the Bride-to-Be

Keep the Bride Out of the Planning Process

The bachelorette has plenty of responsibilities on her plate. Between putting together the guest list, arranging seating, booking the hall, and ordering the wedding cake, the last thing on the bride-to-be’s mind should be planning the bachelorette party. Keep her out of the spa party planning and just let her enjoy the day. Make it a surprise and be sure to include all her favorite spa and salon amenities.

Don’t Assume It Has to Be a Daytime Party

When you think of spa parties, you may think of afternoon get-togethers. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Nighttime bachelorette parties are becoming increasingly more popular. For that reason, spas everywhere are accommodating their guests with evening spa packages.

Book Early

Book your bachelorette spa party too late and you risk missing out on the planned date and time, as well as the amenities you and the other party attendees most want. Book early and not only do you have higher chances of booking the ideal party, but you may have more ways to save.

Are you feeling a little lost or unfulfilled in your current job?

Have you wanted to switch careers to finally love what you do, but you’re not sure how?

Too many people will wind up working a job they hate, 40 hours a week, for the rest of their lives. This doesn’t have to be you. If you love going to the salon or have always had a knack for hair, becoming a hairstylist could be the perfect job for you.

Becoming a hairstylist has the potential to serve you in more ways than your typical 9-5 ever could. You will get to meet different men and women everyday and help them to feel great about themselves.

Build a list of loyal clients and you will have yourself a fully functioning dream-job. Read on to learn the 4 steps you will need to follow to begin your hairstylist career in Ohio.

Step 1: Choose a Board-Approved Cosmetology School in Ohio

Becoming a cosmetologist, or a hairstylist if you will, does not come without effort. You will be required to finance and graduate from an approved cosmetology program before you will be able to move forward in establishing your career.

In Ohio, there is a regulatory board for cosmetology that is in place to set and enforce standards for beauty service providers throughout the state. This board is called the Ohio State Cosmetology and Barber Board and will be a trusted resource along your journey. To ensure that you have the proper education, this board will require that you graduate from a recognized institution before you will be able to obtain a cosmetology license.

You can find a list of accepted schools here.

Your cosmetology program will be at least 1500 hours and you will gain a wealth of knowledge ranging from nail care to salon operations. While this curriculum will fully prepare you to become a hairstylist, there is an optional program in Ohio to become a Hair Designer. This program will be at least 1200 hours.

Step 2: Pass the Ohio Licensing Exam

Once you have completed your hair designer or cosmetology program, you will be required to register for an exam to test your knowledge. Without doing this and obtaining the proper licensing, you will not legally be allowed to practice your trade in Ohio.

You will need to be able to provide a valid form of ID upon entry to your exam and an exam fee of $31.50 will be required. Exam fees are non-refundable and a rescheduling fee of $45 will be applied if you miss your exam date for any reason.

Pay careful attention to the rules for the exam. There will be no phones, smartwatches, or student communication at any time. There will also be a dress code and you will be required to bring a list of general supplies to complete the exam. For the Hair Designer Practical exam, you will complete a series of applications on a mannequin.

To register for the exam and read up on the exam rules, visit this page. For full details of the exam, refer to the TIP exam packet available online. When waiting to take your exam, you may apply for a work permit that will grant you permission to work and will expire on the date of your exam.

Step 3: Obtain Your Ohio Hair Designer License

After you have passed the necessary exams, you will be able to purchase your Ohio hair designer license! This license will permit you to work in a salon and offer services in your industry. Depending on the nature of your education and what services you’re prepared to offer, you may have several licensing fees.

It’s important to note that once you obtain the proper licensing, you will be required to renew your license every 2 years. This renewal will come with renewal fees and continuing education requirements to ensure you’re up to date in the cosmetology field. Pay close attention to the calendar and avoid renewing your license after January 31 of every odd year or you could be subject to additional fees.

Step 4: Take Your Hard Work to the Salon

Once you’re fully trained and licensed, you’re ready to begin working in a salon and start growing your client base! By showing up every day with a passion for beauty and a desire to serve each client, you’re sure to build a business that you love.

Choosing a salon may be one of the harder choices you’ve been faced with to this point – aside from choosing to change careers, that is. Taking the time to choose the perfect salon for you will highly contribute to your contentment in the workplace.

Make sure you’re clear on the salon’s policies and don’t be afraid to ask as many questions as you can think of! Just as it’s important that the salon be a good fit for you, you should be a good fit for the salon. A harmonious work environment that is true to who you are will help to ensure a successful career. .
