great salon - an area of Islington I didnt know existed
salon is very clean, tidy and well equipped
Had a great manicure and pedicure - ordinary varnish, not shellac.
I have applied additional top coats every 2-3 days, but the varnish still looks fine after ten days - something of a record for me!
wonderful wide massage table; I'm not a svelte size 10 or trim 14 - usually when I have a massage, my arms don't fit comfortably on the table. so the wide massage table here is brilliant - stands to reason that if your body is in alignment and your not straining to hold you arms up or behind your head to be comfortable, that the massage will be tons more effective.
The massage therapist was great, it was an excellent massage.
I was a bit concerned about the comments of noisy gym music, but booked anyway because its close to home,. Admitedly I was here on a Friday evening, so the gym may have brrn quieter than normal, but I really didn't notice it after the first few minutes.
I'll definitely be going back.
Rachels manicure was excellent as ever - it's lasted 4 weeks before chipping, including a week away with no diswasher.
I chose a really nice blue shade this time.
massage OK - admin atrocious
I'd booked an afterwork massage at 6pm - received a call at 2pm requesting that I move it to 7pm
call at around 6.30pm to cancel (just as well I live close by and wasnt already on my way)
further call at about 7pm to ask if I could reschedule to 8pm
I forgot to pick up the voucher with all the other changes, emailed it to the address they gave me, still got a load of phone calls & emails asking me to send the voucher - emailed it about 4 times in the end.
the massage itself was fine - but overall a frustrating experience.
Fantastic nails as ever - CND have some fantastic new colours. this was my 3rd visit - so I definitely reccommend.
My previous manicure by Rachael lasted 4 weeks and still looked great with no chips, despite lugging around lots of packing boxes throughout.
Second visit to Rachel - My nails are still looking great after nearly four weeks
I chose a fantastic christmassy green colour, but not too lurid
Quarter Head Brazilian Blow Dry - genius idea
I have my hair really short at the back and sides, with a long fringe that needs straightening - this is ideal, brazilians in the past have meant juggling haircuts and blowdrys.
facial was OK, although advertised as 45mins to an hour, but finished in less than 30 mins
premises are very shabby, and I could hear every word of the conversation in the next cubicle
cheap for central London - but you get what you pay for; essentially there's nothing wrong with my skin, so having a facial is a luxury, but there is nothing luxurious or special about this venue.
Have used the salon several times for Brazilian Blowdries - first time I've had my hair cut here, I'm pleased with the result.
Amazing how relaxing and quiet the salon seemed compared to weekends when it can be quite frenetic!
