Small, quiet salon with friendly staff. I had the deluxe manicure and pedicure. It was relaxing, value for money and I am pleased with the results. I'd return here for another treatment!

This is my second time to this salon. As with my first visit the treatment was completed quickly and as painlessly as possible with a Hollywood wax. I was really pleased with how thorough my therapist was The staff are all very friendly and the treatment room is comfortable. I will return again.

Great service as usual, and they are very quick as well, no waiting around for ages which can sometimes happen at salons if you have a late appointment. They seem to do a really good blowdry as well, might have to try that out next.

Cute little salon with lovely staff. As someone who's had a fair few good and bad Hollywoods in the past, I thought their lady did a b
rilliant job. Really happy :)

Lovely little place, very cute room and everyone is friendly. Waxing lady chatted with me and she was very nice and on time. Two things that could have been better (hence the three stars):
There was a bit of miscommunication for the day of the appointment. I booked for Sunday via Wahanda, got a confirmation email from the salon. I got a call on Friday if I can do it on the day which was absolutely fine with me. And then Saturday evening I got another call saying they don't actually work on Sunday so I can't do my appointment, even though I already had it! They were apologetic, and I didn't mind, but it could have been a bit of a hastle if I wasn't available on Friday.
The other thing is that I didn't find the waxing very clean. The lady who did it didn't wear gloves, and I was asked quite a lot to stretch my skin here and there even though I hadn't disinfected my hands (in other salons they wear gloves and offer antibacterial wipes for the customer). Also, I think she was doubledipping.
When I did my waxing she had been working only a short time at the salon, so these issues may be resolved by now. Overall it was good (especially for that value), but I would have definitely enjoyed it more if there weren't these issues.

Many thanks for your review and please do accept our apology if your experience with us was not as pleasant as we would have loved to.
It is our policy for all our therapists to extremely care about personal hygiene and to always use gloves. If the therapist did not do it on this occasion we apologise. However, we also strongly recommend our customers to ask for the maximum care possible from our therapists.
With regards to the change in dates for your appointment we would as well like to apologise. In April we moved from the winter calendar to the summer calendar and unfortunately we did not manage to inform you well in advance as I understand you may have liked. Fortunately, we managed to provide you with the service on the Friday before which also suited you.
We are looking forward to seeing you again soon.

The staff were really nice, very polite and smiley but my therapist (and I hate to say that because she was lovely) had no idea how to do a professional manicure.
She used a metallic file that scraped the surface of -my already weak- nails out and now I have to use vitamin treatment to bring them back. (At the time she reassured me it was fine - but unfortunately it isn't). She also did not apply the colour evenly and did not apply topcoat at all! I had to ask her to use the nail buff because they were flakes from my damaged (I had no idea then) nail on all my nails and the base would not apply smoothly.
What hit the roof for me when while treating an ingrown toe nail the metal too fell on the floor and WITHOUT DISINFECTING it she attempted to use it again, after taking the dirt out with a towel. I did not let her of course and she apologised a million times but by then I just wanted to leave.

The salon itself is nice, clean and beautifully decorated. Great callus treatment as well - they almost dissipated!
The owner of the salon is a lovely lady and the girls were great but the actual treatment was far from professional.

Great value for money and very kind staff! My delux manicure and pedicure were both very good, they used they good products and left me satisfied. I would highly recommend this place. The salon is clean and ambiance is relaxing!

Super friendly, got the job done pretty quick and painless. I've had enough good and bad bikini waxes to know how important it is to get it done quickly, cleanly, and smoothly! I would gladly recommend this place to a friend.

The lovely ladies at the salon really made my experience pleasant and relaxing - and just what I needed, can't thank you enough! My treatment was comprehensive and my therapist very attentive. The only thing I would improve is the variety of nail polish colours.

A small salon but perfectly formed. The therapist was super friendly and efficient. The wax was excellent and very thorough. The treatment room was very clean and comfortable. I will definitely go back.

The hairdresser was a lady from Spain. She did an excellent job. I will definitely come back to this saloon.

A colourful and quirky saloon, it was easy to find. There was no waiting time, I was offered tea and a biscuit. The conditioning treatment was good and well done. I even got a little hand massage while I waited for the conditioning to sink in. Maria my hairdresser spoke little English but was very friendly and obviously experienced. I gave an idea of what I wanted (my hair is not easy, it is wavy, thick and gets frizzy) and she caught on easily enough.. I like hairdressers who can give suggestions and work to suit the client's hair.. The cut and blowdry clearly showed the look of an experienced and modern hair dresser in its style and finish details. Its been a couple of weeks and my hair sits well and looks good even on days I don't straighten it. I will be going back..

Had a wonderful experience at this salon. Staff were so professional, gave me great style advice before cutting my hair. Even got a lovely massage while my hair was being treated. All in all I couldn't be happier with my experience... really happy with my hair cut too. It was my first time going but will definitely go again. 100% recommend!
