THE ULTIMATE GO AND GLOW BOOSTER FACIAL

Why this facial?

It’s the time of the year when you feel that Summer may make your skin seem drenched in oil most of the time. In addition, over-exfoliation and washing it often may cause dryness and invite redness to your face. These factors make the summer season a tricky time for your facial skin. To reap skincare benefits and make your face radiant, we believe that Ultimate Go & Glow Booster facial is your go-to option at this time of the year. The benefits of this facial are endless, but we promise you that you will see the difference with

  • An enhanced skin complexion
  • Your skin will feel plumper and hydrated
  • It will reduce discolouration
  • Redefining your pores
  • Your skin will be rejuvenated with a boost of much-needed energy

Be prepared to look radiant with a super healthy glow. Book yours for £65 (usually listed at £79).

WHY NOT SHOW IT OFF?

You have no excuse to hide those toes away in closed toe shoes at this time of the year. Grab the sandals girl.  Our dream team, Agnieszka and Sally, are your go-to girls to ensure those perfectly manicured toes can show themselves in any shoes. So whether it’s a glitzy pair of Manolo Blahniks or your comfy Birkenstocks, you need to show them off while you can and before we have to put them back into thick thermal socks. So let’s take advantage of this beautiful weather and allow them to be free.

We love our partnership with Bio Sculpture and their tranquil Spa treatment range, which is included in all our pedicures. Inspired by nature, the SPA range is specially blended and formulated to exfoliate, hydrate, protect and soften the skin and cuticles. In addition, products are infused with Essential nutrients to rejuvenate the health and beauty of your skin, nails and toenails. Complete the treatment with a Gel Application, and your toes will twinkle all month long. If you have a toenail and you’re embarrassed about it. You are not alone. The new Biosculpture No Glue Tip application may be the solution to ensure that your toes are all lined up.

There’s a saying that women are like fingers and toes because they’re easy to count on. So count on us to make you feel like the goddess you are.

MEET SARAH - GLOSS SENIOR STYLIST

Tell us a little about you.

I love time with my friends and family and enjoy the outdoors. But, I cannot sit still for long.  So, my self-love treat is getting a lovely head massage conditioning treatment and somebody else to blow dry my hair.

Why did you choose to become a hairdresser?

I love creativity and making people feel great. So my strongest passions are wrapped into one job.

What is your favourite treatment to do?

I absolutely love a hair transformation. Doing colour changes and restyle makeovers.

Do you have a funny “chair” story to share?

I had a client go into labour whilst in the chair. It wasn’t funny at the time but reflecting, what are the chances?

What do you do in your spare time when you’re not looking after other people’s hair?

I am a Plant-Aholic. I am passionate about creating a beautiful outside space to relax and enjoy with my people.

LOVE THE SKIN YOU'RE IN

Ageing is a fact of life.    Looking your age is not.    In its simplest description, we’re human, and ageing is a biological process.    It happens with anything living, a piece of fruit, a flower, an animal, or a person.    Think about it.    What happens to a piece of fruit or flower when it gets old?    Their appearance changes drastically from vibrant and supple to the opposite.    The fruit rots and decomposes, and the flower withers and does the same.    This is the ageing process.    Whilst we can not change the function or natural course of life, we can change the rate at which it happens and how we care for it and embrace it.    We can make immediate changes today!    The obvious choices are more sleep, better eating habits, taking our vitamins and supplements, exercise and protecting our skin.    Simple tweaks will naturally slow down the ageing process.  

At Gloss, we believe in the journey.    Our resident Aesthetician, Theresa, is a walking encyclopedia of knowledge on preventing and reversing the ageing process in a natural, painless way.    We’re not talking about injecting chemicals here or painful procedures with days of downtime.    We’re talking about quick and easy treatments that put all the natural goodness back into your skin to help you maintain your natural, youthful glow.    Some of us are terrified at the thought. That’s why we have live demos each week where you can see and understand the treatment process.    We also know that it’s not a sprint to get there. It’s a journey.    We are so passionate about what we do. We believe in the results and want you to understand what’s available and your choices. Knowing this, we decided not to charge for your initial skin consultation so that you can understand how to retain a youthful glow.  

This month Theresa is offering all GLOSS clients a BioRePeel C13.  This incredible treatment, usually £120 a session, is on offer for £100, including skin preparation, an extraction peel and hydrating mask, and a complimentary shoulder massage. So let’s walk the journey and grow younger together.

UNDERSTANDING REFLEXOLOGY

When the seasons change, the energy frequency of our body (known in Traditional Chinese Medicine as QI, can become disrupted, these adjustments can have a negative impact on the body, and we can experience illness from a lower immune system, ebbs in energy and general feelings of being out of sorts and unbalanced.

Whilst we can’t control Mother Nature’s seasonal changes, we can control how we manage our holistic health towards it. So be prepared and be one step ahead of seasonal change and how it might affect you. Bringing your body, mind and spirit back into balance with a beautifully deeply relaxing Reiki-infused Reflexology treatment.

The benefits of reflexology are applying pressure and massage to the feet by working on each reflex point that corresponds to all organs and systems in the body. As a result, they can be stimulated or calmed to encourage a return to optimal health.

  • Works with the central nervous system
  • Reduces pain by reducing stress and improving your mood
  • Keeps the body’s vital energy flowing (QI)
  • Reflexology enables your body to heal and repair itself

We are so excited to have this treatment on our Spa Menu. We want you to understand the treatment and the benefits, so we have introduced a first-time new patient offering. Book your first treatment at the special introductory offer of £45 and experience the benefits of harmonising the body physically and energetically.
