This woman-of-the-week thing is totally exhausting, if we’re to be honest! If it’s not the office, it’s family drama; if it’s not a family drama, it’s freelance gigs and the urgencies that come with it. Wherever we go, there’s somebody who needs something from us, and – being the queens of life that we are – we can’t help but not see their requests through. But, no matter how amazing, we, too, get tired and need a little kick to jolt us back in the right direction. With that in mind, enjoying little pampering sessions is probably one of the best ways to help us relax and forget all about our daily commitments, especially if we’re making a get-together of it! Just imagine this: gathered together with your best friends, with a bottle of bubbly opened, a massage table waiting and beauty treatments on schedule ready to give you life once again… Fabulous!
If this sounds like something you’d enjoy doing, here a few Q&As to help you grasp (and organize) everything:
Do pampering parties need an occasion?
Absolutely not! While they are most commonly organized as bachelorette parties, baby showers, engagement parties or birthdays, more and more girls/women are throwing these little pampering get-togethers as a reward for themselves after a long week/month without any specific reason. The idea is to help your body and mind relax and detoxicate from stress, bad food you may have been eating lately, sore muscles (from all the sitting at the office), and the everyday noise that’s been killing you. This is a chill girl time to which guys aren’t allowed to come (unless you explicitly want them there), and a fantastic opportunity for women to restore balance, enjoy some healthy snacks, get pampered by fully trained beauty therapists, catch up and just enjoy their afternoon off.
Can these parties be thrown at home?
Of course, they can! While girls are used to throwing similar types of parties at home where they, themselves paint their nails, fix their hair, wear face masks, order food, etc., this time around – trained professionals are coming to your home and giving you a full salon experience without you having to move an inch from your sofa. Basically, this new pampering form is a pajama party upgraded! Everything is done in the comfort of your own home or hotel, with the costs way lower than they would be at a salon. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
What treatments can be included in these pampering sessions?
Virtually, anything you ask, that is, anything the salon you opt for offers. We love that the options are pretty eased up – you don’t even have to bother to go to the salon, everything can be selected and booked online. Love.
Usually, the best salons offer fruit peels, deep tissue massages, manicures, facials, aroma therapies, etc. – you name it! There are some salons that are offering free pamper party treatments when bookings are done online! Go figure! Obviously, it’s getting apparent that women need their relaxation on point, and more and more beauty parlors are hopping on board to make that happen.
Is this a whole day experience?
That one depends solely on you. After all the treatments are done, you can always prolong the enjoyment by staying a few more hours together (or even a sleepover) to watch movies, dance in the house (or even go out), chill and talk. The point of pampering parties is indulgence, so, it goes without saying that its extent is something you and your girlfriends are deciding for yourselves.
