Personal grooming is important, it’s the first impression we give others of our selves. Here are some tips so you will look amazing for the season ahead.

Be smart with your hair colouring


Here are some tips to make the most of keeping your hair looking spot on with minimal regrowth.

  • For those with highlights have a toner at say 4 weeks to smudge out new growth and refresh your desired tone.
  • When having foils and global colour make every second and or third visit for just a retouch root colour and a treatment for the ends to get longevity out of your colour.
  • Ombre and balayage are still very on-trend and easily disguise new growth.
  • If the silver whites creeping in switch to our latest technology smooth blending colours, these have no /minimal regrowth lines.
  • When having a high lift blonde tint have this done every three weeks for best results as the lessor the new growth the better the lightening process.
  • Use our Early Bird Club for 50% off colours.

Regular beauty maintenance

Get regular facials

A facial is a skin treatment for the face that can cleanse your pores, exfoliate, rejuvenate, nourish and leave your skin feeling smooth and healthier. Our therapists give you a full skin analysis to make the decision of what the right facial is for your individual needs. The multi-step facial process varies depending on what type of facial you or the therapist have requested. Getting a facial every four to six weeks can make a big difference in your complexion. Think of it as a mini-retreat just for your face that helps erase all the anxiety, long days and longer nights from the past several weeks. Plus, you’ll get some real insight into what’s going on with your skin and what it needs to look its best once you leave.


  • Threading can be used to eliminate a unibrow, raise the arch of the eyebrow, or add shape and definition to the brow.
  • Threading is much kinder to the skin and is considerably less painful than other methods of hair removal.
  • Threading lifts the hair from the follicle, therefore if it is done on a regular basis, it weakens the hair follicle so hair growth becomes less dense over time, and new hair will grow finer and sparser.
  •  Re-growth is between 2-4 weeks, depending on hair growth. This makes threading the most effective method of hair removal on the face for everyone. If you are looking for the best results, you need to consider threading. It is known to be a wonderful option for formal events, such as weddings or simply as an addition to a regular beauty regime.

waxing merivale

With summer just around the corner, now’s the time to embrace waxing.

To make sure you get the most out of your session, Vicki Ogden O’Fee from V For Hair and Beauty Merivale gives us the following tips on waxing.

Let it grow. Therefore, it’s best to get your first leg, bikini or Brazilian wax when the weather is still cool enough to wear pants: you need about a week-and-a-half to two weeks of hair growth. Of course, “it depends how fast your hair grows, but we usually recommend about 1 cm [of hair].

So, embrace the fuzz and let it grow. On the plus side, consider this the last time you’ll ever have uncomfortable stubble because anything that grows post-wax will be soft, fresh new hair.

Gel Pedicure

Once the gel pedicure is properly done, you will get beautiful nails that you will be able to use for a long time. Here’s why getting one is worth it. Gel pedicures usually look decent for four to six weeks, depending on your technician’s skill level and the product that was used. There is no worry about smudging your freshly painted toes, the UV light dries the gel instantly you can leave the salon with your shoes on.

Always have lipstick on hand

Lipstick draws attention to the lips and makes them stand out. Lips are considered a sensual part of the body and highlighting them can make women more attractive. Some women may wear lipstick to feel better about their appearance. You care about the rest of your look when you’re wearing lipstick, so once you swipe on a colour, you’ll also put a pinch of extra effort into your hair and your outfit. People compliment women who wear lipstick. … Wearing lipstick means you’ll take better care of your lips in the way of exfoliation and hydration. Lipstick is a good way to brighten up an outfit if you are having a casual grooming day a soft subtle lipstick gives the look a little extra polish. It gives a glow to your face and when in the correct toning for your skin can accentuate your eyes.
