TOP TIPS AND FAQ
Exfoliate and do any waxing or shaving the day before. You will wear paper pants for the tan and we would recommend you bring loose dark clothing to go home in. The tan will last for about 5-7 days if looked after correctly ie moisturise, pat skin dry after bath/shower. We would advise to have the tan 1-2 days before the special occasion. We offer spray tans with Sienna X and St Tropez products. You can shower after 8 hours, if you are going to sleep before you shower, we recommend you use old bed sheets, or lay a towel on the bed, so it does not appear on your bed sheets
We test a small amount behind your ear or crease of the elbow to make sure you do not react to the tinting products that we are using, this is usually done at least 24 hours before your appointment. You can waive your right to a skin test if you sign a disclaimer; this is usually for clients that have had tinting done before, but not in our salon and do not feel they are sensitive to tinting products.

Ideally the hair needs to be at least 1cm long in order to be waxed. The longer the hair, easier the pull and better the results. This is usually about 2-3 weeks of hair growth after shaving. We also offer strip wax and the hot wax method as standard, clients usually find hot wax more comfortable around the intimate areas of the bikini
Differences between gel polish and standard nail polish, there are now many versions of these products available now in salons. We use Artistic Gel Polish, it’s stronger than a nail polish and is set under a LED lamp and needs to be soaked off every two to three weeks. We use Essie as our standard Nail Polish which usually lasts for 4 – 5 days but can chip in between this time. We always give advice before any application and find out from you which will be the best for you.
The Artistic gel polish treatment ensures incredibly durable, chip free manicure that once cured with our LED light will last for 2 – 3 weeks with superior shine and easily removed when you are back, there is also a large choice of colours to choose from. This product grows out as your nails grow.
