Lorri Ducharme, owner/operator of Prestige Hair and Nails in Dudley, MA, was recently featured on Fox Channel 25 regarding the infection Sharon Cooper suffered on her foot after an unsanitary pedicure in another salon. Ducharme is a Certified Advanced Nail Technician (ANT) who provides safe, sanitary nail services for her clients. She discussed how her training has informed her protocols:
- Clients wash their hands before the service — as does she
- She wears gloves to further protect her clients from cross contamination
- The items she uses are all disposed of after every service, or run through an autoclave to sterlize them fully
These are just some of steps that Ducharme takes to ensure the safety and well-being of her clients. They are also things every person should look for in their own salon services.
In 2015 there were 212 salon complaints regarding injuries and sanitation reported in Massachusetts and Ducharme is committed to working with regulators toward making salons safer. We at Nailcare Academy salute Lorri Ducharme for all her efforts and support her fully.
