The spring shoots are finally poking through! Boy are we ready for summer... It's that time of year to start cleaning out cupboards, taking bags to the charity shop & shaving your legs! Summer is on its way... but not soon enough, hop online and get something booked for a cheeky bit of spring sunshine, if you haven't already and then it's time to prep for that bikini like you never prepped before.
Spring holidays are amazing and dreadful in equal measure, ok if your Mrs body confident or you hit the gym all year round but for the vast number of women, even on a good day we stress about our bodies. Whether it be a mummy tummy or hairy toes, whatever it is we've all got that one thing that we think of in the run up to a holiday... Who are we competing with? Ourselves, I think because most of our partners don't care about our wobbly bits, in fact there just supper happy we will be shedding the 2 pairs of socks, fluffy slipper boots, pyjama and dressing gown ensemble we've been hibernating in all winter. Oh, and we might actually shave our legs, not just our ankles or the bits people can see if we cross our legs 🤣😮
If you wonder every year why the beautiful ones manage to look so good by the pool each year and you resemble Ursula from The Little Mermaid rather than Ursula Andress emerging from the sea, then read on…..
Looking great on holiday is all about preparation, but it doesn’t have to be hair work, leave it to the professionals!
What Pre-Holiday Treatments Do These Goddesses Have?
LVL Lash Lift
Why? Because this fab treatment means you always look like you have mascara on. This two-stage treatment tints your lashes making them look thicker and fuller, then lifts your lashes from the roots, which makes them look longer and like they have mascara on. Results last around 6 weeks.
Why? Obviously to remove unwanted hair, but the results also last longer meaning you don’t have to shave on holiday. Most of our clients opt for full leg, bikini, under arm and brows. Waxing reduces hair growth with repetitive use and leaves skin feeling smoother for longer. Many women can feel self-conscious wearing a bathing suite or bikini, shaving the bikini area can leave soreness especially in warm humid weather as the razor can drag across the skin and it often needs to be done daily. Bikini waxing can be tailored just for you, whether you want it all off or just a little tidy on the sides. We have women of all ages shapes and sizes so don’t be embarrassed talking about your bikini area.
Why? To make your brow look thicker, more defined and will make your brow shape look better. Great for clients who have a lighter colour brow or finer hair, this treatment can really alter the eye shape and open the eye up to give a more youthful appearance. Even if you’re not sure you have enough hair for this if your very fair it’s worth asking, you might be surprise what can be done!
Why? Nothing says holiday like pretty, bright coloured nails! There are different options with nails, whether you opt for a natural mini pedi with varnish or shellac fingers and toes. If your needing additional length too, acrylic enhancements are a great durable solution. We personally recommend shellac for holidays as its longer lasting, you can expect up to 2 weeks of chip free perfect nails, we do have many ladies who get longer but we can’t promise!
Why? So you arrive with a healthy glow! Ever noticed how the plane on the flight out is full of pail endemic looking people except for the hand full of beautiful people? We they had a pre-holiday fake tan! By the time it fades they will have a beautiful natural glow from the sun, while you look red and flustered from trying to tan quickly and get rid of your milk bottle legs! Get a tan and use a high SPF cream while your in the sun so you get a more gentile exposure.
