Spa and Beauty

What is the difference between a spa and beauty salon?


A lot of people visit beauty salons and spas for several reasons. It could be to improve their look, health, mood, or to just spend time in pleasing environment, relaxing and rejuvenating. There are however many people, who do not understand the difference between a spa and salon.

If you’re also unsure about the difference, keep on reading.

At a spa, because everyone has their own unique set of problems and grievances there is an individual approach to every client unlike in a salon where client requests are generally very similar.

They’re also usually situated in the same location for example and are usually called “salon and spa”. But in reality, a spa in Dubai is much bigger than a salon is.

Another important factor is the range of services provided. Services such as haircuts, manicure, pedicure, waxing, etc. are offered by both spas and salons. But beauty salons generally don’t offer sanitary services, which are provided in spas, and usually require professional medical control.

Another difference between the two, are the types of equipment used. Beauty salons may sometimes use non-professional equipment without losing the quality of result, but if the same is done in a spa, it will significantly influence the desired result.

In addition, a salon visit, generally lasts few hours during which a new look is created. While in spas, a client can spend a whole day, getting various treatments and procedures to relax, revitalize and improve general health. There’s also a major difference in the aesthetics of both establishments. For example, it is common to wear dressing gown in a spa but a person in a robe at a local salon would be considered strange.

There are major differences between spas and beauty salons such as duration of the treatments and procedures, as well as services offered and general aesthetics.
