May 8th is Mother’s Day, which is a day on which mothers around the country will be pampered, waited on, and showered with affection. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are over 43 million mothers in the country. Those looking for a fun and unique way to spend the special day with their mother this year should look no further than a day out at the salon

“We often have mothers and daughters in here together and I have seen that it’s a great time for them,” explains Katherine Goldman, celebrity aesthetician/waxologist and owner of the Stript Wax Bar. “Ladies love a day at the salon or wax bar, and going with your mom makes it that much more special.”

Here are 5 reasons to bond with mom at the salon this Mother’s Day:

Relaxation. Moms and daughters can get a chance to relax together when they take to the salon. Whether getting waxed, having make-up done, or getting a pedicure, it’s a great way to unwind and enjoy the time together.

Confidence. Anytime people walk out of a salon or wax bar, they feel great. Being able to get a confidence booster together will send both mom and daughter out the door feeling and looking great.

Pampering. Everyone loves pampering. While things such as waxing may be able to be done at home, it’s always better at the salon, where it will be done right the first time and those having the treatments can sit back and relax.

Girls only. A great way to get away from the crowds and leave the boys behind is to head to the salon. It gives moms and daughters a chance to have a girl’s day out doing girly things and not having to worry about the boys being around to hear them or hold them back.

Conversations. A lot of great conversations take place at the salon, because it’s a more intimate setting and people feel so relaxed. As someone does the work, moms and daughters sit back and enjoying chatting it up.

“Bonding with mom at the salon is always a favorite for everyone involved,” added Goldman. “Plus, it’s a great excuse to head to a nice lunch afterward. You will leave feeling and looking great and can enjoy stopping at the café on your way home. That’s a mother-daughter day you can’t beat!”
