Waxing and skin care problems

Posted by Sarah Barnett on April 20, 2017 at 4:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Sometimes after waxing clients my say a few days later they have something like a scab or burn mark on their eyebrow. The natural reaction is it is something we did or our wax was too hot. We take great care to keep our wax at the right temperature and ensure problems dont arise by testing on our wrist.

We completely understand why you would think it was us. The truth is that often the problem can be caused by the products the client uses at home. Many skin care products today contain ...

Finding a good waxing salon

Finding a good waxing salon


How clean is the waxing station?

Does the therapist re use the spatula time and after time? We call this double dipping. This will spread bacteria from client to client and I am pleased to say this is something we do not do.


If your really struggling with the pain - the therapist might not be very experienced. There should only be a very slight sting which will quickly pass in a second. If you find you leave...

Its a hit!

Posted by Sarah Barnett on April 14, 2017 at 3:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Our Entity acrylic dip and buff is proving to be a massive hit. We have just ordered another 10 colours as we love it so much. Its so hard wearing and feels so thin but strong at the same time. 

Sidney is now able to do them in 35 minutes. The rest of the girls are still getting to grips with it but we definitely love this product. At last something that lasts longer than gel without the smell. It doesnt contain monomer so that is why it doesnt smell. Perfect for our little salon.&...

Dip and buff acrylic

Posted by Sarah Barnett on April 9, 2017 at 2:45 AM Comments comments (0)

We are so excited to introduce Dip and Buff acrylic. I have never liked acrylic due to the smell and what I have seen damage to clients nails. This is different. It doesnt smell! It so easy to do and its much more hard wearing than acrylics. You simply apply the base coat then dip the nails in the acrylic powder. Then do this 1 or 2 more times and keep applying the different clear coats and voile perfect nails. No need to file the nail a simple buff will do. Its so easy to apply and its so st...

Hayfever and lash extensions

Hayfever and lash extensions


Did you know that your immune system is weakened when you have hayfever? We rely on our immune system to protect us from the environment, its our defence system. An allergy occurs when the immune system reacts to pollen as if it were an enemy to the body. In response to this the immune system produces antibodies that trigger the release of a chemical called histamine which causes the symptons of hayfever.

This can result in you becoming s...

Eyebrow attraction

Posted by Sarah Barnett on March 5, 2017 at 5:15 AM Comments comments (0)

What makes us attracted to one person more than someone else? 

Looking good and taking care of yourself can have a massive impact on your life. Most people are fickle and we do get judged on looks. 

When you look at someones face the first thing you notice is their eyebrows. Even if your make up is perfect your eyebrows can ruin the whole look if they are not groomed. Its a fact that even babies will stare more at a symmetrical face than an unsymmetrical face. Its in our...
