Salons may not know true goals of client visits to Russia. Happiness loves silence if a visit is related to family planning. Brilliant hairstyling and stylish haircuts for future parents may be needed for memory photo sessions. Specialists will add some positive during a very important period of expecting a baby and, may be, will never know real emotions of visitors. It is important that service quality will be as high as for other clients.

Another active category of medical tourists are people combining diagnostics or treatment with familiarizing touristic sights of Russian cities. The audience may get interested in express services of salons in large trade and entertainment complexes without a pre-booking.

Many specialists of beauty industry are experienced in work with special clients. These are patients whose diseases have affected seriously not only their life but also appearance. While fighting with cancer diseases, patients may lose hair temporarily which should be recovered in future. Patients with neurologic diseases may have mobility and speech disorders. Patients may include people travelling in a wheelchair, and transport availability of a salon is crucial. Here we mention only some examples which have been experienced by representatives of beauty industry. And the work will continue with the growth of flow of foreign medical tourists to Russia.

It is a psychological aspect, another step to a common or new, best life while being cured, having rehabilitation, leisure or expecting a baby.
