 International Pedicure Association is dedicated to informing the public about the safety and sanitization techniques that you can      expect to see when you visit a reputable salon.    On these pages you will find information in respect of what to ask or what  observations you may make when visiting a salon.  This list is by no means exhaustive, but it is designed to assist you when deciding  on a salon.

 If you have a complaint about a salon/spa in the US, click on the heading "Licensing Boards". For Canadians, contact your local  Department of Health.
