Smoothing and softening of hard skin, cuticle work and nails cut, filed and buffed.  Finished with Jessica colour or French varnish.
 
Spa Pedicure
1hr 15 mins
The pedicure journey begins with a Himalayan inspired aroma welcoming. Feet are sanitised and showered with Himalayan mineral crystals while soaking in the beautiful wooden pedicure bowl, with petals. 
 
With this treatment we treat top to tail so whilst soaking, you will receive a wonderful head massage.   Our organic foot scrub is then used to remove dead skin cells before you are transferred to the couch and grounded with a relaxing crystal trail around the body.
 
On the couch we will trim cuticles, cut and file nails as required, followed by a reflexology-influenced stick foot massage, commonplace in the Himalayan countries of Tibet and Nepal.
 
Toes are then painted if required (varnish is not organic) and finally the feet are deeply nourished with our refreshing and super hydrating  aromatic foot balm. The journey almost complete – you can relax with a herbal tea.

 Eyelash extensions
 
Eyelashes were traditionally applied in strips or clusters.  Lash extensions are applied individually to your own lashes, to lengthen and define your eyes.  The lash extensions can last weeks depending on the life-cycle of your natural eyelash. 
 
If at any time you don't wish to continue with the eyelash extensions they must be professionally removed.  You should never pick, tug, twist or excessively touch your extensions.
 
You will need to have a patch test to check if you are allergic to the adhesive.
 
Spray Tanning
A unique natural formulation to achieve a golden and even tan all year round.
A tan for all occasions and all skin types.  
 
How long will it last?  One of the most difficult questions because it depends on your skin type and lifestyle, as every body and every skin is different.  However we would say up to 7 days, as a guideline.
 
Before
 
-Exfoliate your skin 24 hours before paying attention to any dry areas, such as knees, elbows and heels.
-Don't shower just before the tan as you don't want shower gels, perfumes, deodorants, and creams on your skin. Also, please come 'make-up free'.
-Wear loose dark clothing.
 
After
-Don't shower your skin for at least 6-8 hours after, when you wash the tan off.
-Avoid sweating.
-Moisturise your skin regularly.
-Don't shave for at least 12 hours after.
-Avoid waxing and exfoliating as this will remove the tan.
