What Are The Different Types Of Pedicures, And Which Pedicure Options Are Best

Feet certainly aren’t the most popular body part, but they have inspired major growth of one of the most popular beauty treatments: The pedicure. This indulgent spa experience has taken hold of America, contributing to the near 75% increase in the nation's nail salon numbers since 2000. And with that nail spa and nail salon explosion has come a wide variety of pedicure options, each tailored for specific nail care needs and for specific spa experiences. From a French pedicure to a Shanghai style pedicure, check out the complete list of your pedicure options below, keeping in mind that each spa and salon may have their own name for the different types of pedicures and use its own products for each foot and nail treatment.

Classic or Regular Pedicure

This is the standard treatment pretty much all salons and spas offer. Classic pedicures include a warm foot soak and a foot scrubbing with either a pumice stone or foot file followed by clipping of the nails, shaping of the nails, your cuticles being pushed back, a short foot and calf massage, moisturizer and nail polish (if desired). This option is good for people who are looking for regular foot and toenail maintenance like callus removal without much fuss or pampering.

Spa Pedicure

The spa pedicure elevates the classic pedicure in many ways. The process generally includes a variety of upgrades, including aromatherapy oils added to the footbath, an exfoliating scrub to further remove calluses, a hot towel wrap and paraffin wax dips. In addition, spa pedicures are generally done in a more relaxing, private environment than a typical pedicure at a regular nail salon. The experience should make you feel pampered and ultra relaxed.

Athletic or Sports Pedicure

This type of pedicure is very similar to a classic pedicure but with a slight twist: cooling aromatics are used to help soothe sore, tired muscles. Scents often include peppermint, eucalyptus and/or cucumber. Some salons also offer extra massage with athletic pedicures. It’s a perfect treatment for athletes of any gender as well as anyone looking to get their feet in great shape without frills and luxury. Footfiles recommends this option for people who suffer from ingrown toenails, stubborn calluses and other foot issues that need serious TLC.
