Do you want hair that looks like you just came straight from the red carpet but not at a celebrity price tag? Then treat your loved one to a free consultation with one of our friendly and experienced staff at The Hair & Beauty Lounge. Buy them a gift voucher and they could have a luxurious wash and cut and bouncy blow dry or a full head of highlights or the latest hair extensions.

Treat someone to a voucher for a rich facial treatment designed to leave you feeling and looking better than ever. Or, they could enjoy a whole hour of some much-deserved me-time, with a full-body massage. What about a voucher for a nail treatment where our friendly team of beauty therapists will preen your nails to perfection with a glamorous manicure.

Just phone 01623 400333 or pop into the salon to pick up a Beauty Voucher for that special person this Christmas.


Microblading is a technique used to implant pigment under the epidermis of the skin, using a specially designed handpiece and tiny blade to produce realistic looking thin hair strokes.

Using this method, many different looks can be created, from a natural light finished effect to a thick bold brow.

It is an ideal method for filling in missing brow hair. The brows can last between 12 months to 2 years depending on the skin type and colour chosen.

A patch test is required at least 48 hours prior to treatment.

Treatment costs for eyebrows are £175 including touch up appointment at 4-6 weeks after initial treatment.
