Soak, scrub, hard skin removal, moisturising mask, massage and paint are the six key steps of a pedicure.
Also vital to a providing a superior service is to do a proper prep, without cutting corners. The kind of prep you do depends on what type of pedicure you are doing – a lacquer or gel-polish treatment.
