From streetwear to sweatpants, our ideas of beauty have shifted, and people are adapting their styles to fit the state of the world today. We’ve seen many valiant efforts of home beauty—cutting family members’ hair, trimming our own eyebrows, and everything in between. Through it all, we’ve realized just how much we love and miss our stylists.
You may know Mindbody as a fitness app, but we’re here today to discuss all the ways you can use the app to up-level your beauty wellness routines, too.
Need a blowout post-sweat sesh? We got you.
Want to find a tanning salon in your area? Look no further.
How about a mani-pedi? Got that, too!
Sugaring? Waxing? Threading? Yep, yes, and definitely.
Here is how to activate your Mindbody app to book beauty services near you. Let’s go!
If beauty salons and spas are open near you, you might be ready to head back in. In fact, 64% of you feel comfortable returning to hair salons right now. But after all this time at home, you might be feeling like it’s time to add some new services to your roster.
On the Mindbody app, you can filter the beauty categories to find hair salons, face treatments, nail salons, hair removal, makeup/lash/brow services, med spas, tanning, and even tattoos and piercings. Plus, if you’re a new client, you can browse Intro Offers to get deals on services exclusively for newbies.
You may be expecting your salons and spas to feel as normal as possible and as safe as possible at the same time. And if you’re visiting a salon on Mindbody, you can rest assured that you’ll have the most comfortable experience you can. With our new low-touch journey, you can go through the entire booking, check-in, waiver-signing, payment, tipping, product-purchasing, and reviewing processes digitally. This limits the amount of contact you have with people and physical items like pens, paper, and pin pads to keep you as safe as possible when returning to the salon.
Have a favorite salon you frequent already? Use the Mindbody app to view schedule and availability for specific services, book and pay for appointments, and leave great reviews when you’re done! Want to share your favorite salon with a friend? You can do that, too. Just click on the salon on Mindbody and tap the little share icon in the top right corner to spread the love.
If salons near you are open, and you’re ready to start heading back, Mindbody is a great place to start whether you’re looking for something new, trying to stay safe, or wanting to spread some extra love to your favorite salons and stylists. So, what are you waiting for?
When you think of self-love what do you think of? Bubble baths, walks on the beach, facemasks, or what? Self-love can mean so many different things but when we think about self-love, we have to acknowledge loving ourselves both on the outside and on the inside. The way that we show ourselves love is one of the most important things we will ever do.
How do we treat ourselves? How do we talk to ourselves? What foods are we putting into our bodies? How are we thinking about our overall well-being when practicing self-love?
As self-love defines and redefined itself for you over the years, here are a few foundational tips to think about when easing into your self-love journey.
Don’t we love this one? Loving ourselves has a lot to do with the boundaries that we have for ourselves, with others, and for others. Take time to think about your own emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual needs when setting boundaries that reflect your personal needs. Boundaries don’t have to be big and scary; they are here to remind us that you get to have your lived experience and still have expectations about how you’d like to be treated and what you’d like to feel.
When thinking about your boundaries, ask yourself:
In a world where perfectionism and curated existences have been rewarded, begin to cultivate compassion for yourself. You are a soul having a human experience and it’s totally okay if things are not perfect.
Mindfulness exercises such as Breathwork, self-care activities, and self-compassion, all help train the mind, emotions, and even the body’s stress chemicals to be able to deal with undesired situations. Self-compassion means, can you be nice to yourself? Can you find empathy and kindness for yourself in the middle of what feels chaotic, stressful, or unwanted? Self-compassion means that we get to make mistakes, have our plans not work out the way that we wanted, and we still get to celebrate that we are doing the best that we can and it is enough.
When thinking about self-compassion, ask yourself:
In every sense of the word “nourishment”, begin to learn what nourishes you and what depletes you. Nourishment doesn’t just mean food for yourself; it means that whatever you are consuming whether it be media, podcasts, people, energy, information, etc. all impact the way that we think, feel, and experience life.
Nourishing yourself definitely goes right along the lines of having your boundaries intact and practicing self-compassion.
When thinking about nourishment, ask yourself:
That’s it. Those are the foundational steps to cultivating a self-love practice that you can ease into your daily routine. Come back to these questions often, because like anything else, self-love is a practice and it takes effort, time, and intention to maintain.
