So it’s the end of 2016 and it feels like it has gone by in a flash.
Here in the Pamper Pages office, we have been tucking in to some festive treats, whilst reminiscing on some of this year’s events….
The year started with the exclusive multi award winning EF Medispa clinics joining us. With clinics throughout London and the latest opening in Bristol, EF Medispa first opened their doors over 10 years ago and were one of the first medispas in the country. All clinics offer some of the world’s most innovative treatments available.
We took a trip to West London’s best quirky salon, Privet. With the perfect atmosphere and décor to suit both male and female clients, this was a lovely experience. The “Circadia Oxygen RX Facial” was simply divine. They offer a wide range of treatments and all performed at a very high standard.
Spring welcomed the launch of the HIFU treatment at the beautiful Skin Lounge in the leafy suburb of Richmond. The HIFU treatment promises to give you “a facelift without going under the knife”. This treatment has quickly become the celebrity ‘must have’ and with extremely competitive rates, Skin Lounge is the place to go.
Throughout spring we saw a huge influx of hair salons coming onto the site and one being the Jamie Stevens salon. Jamie is a multi-award winner and it’s easy to see why with some his amazing creations. Jamie has recently launched a male haircare range called “Mr Jamie Stevens”, so now the gentlemen can also have the luxury at home (buy here). Jamie is the X Factor’s resident stylist, so if you fancy something truly special, then we would suggest this salon.
Another award winning salon, is Alison Stewart Hair and Beauty. With a philosophy of “best hair isn’t reserved for the biggest budget” and over 35 year’s experience, it is easy to see why this is one of Scotland’s favourite salons.
As summer approached our faces we enhanced in the none other, Natural Enhancement clinic and performed by the very talented Kim. We saw 'rough round the edges' lips transformed into flawless works of art and ‘scared patchy eyebrows’ turned into the beautiful envious natural ones. (Read both blogs: LIPS and EYEBROWS)
Mid summer and our team was a woman down, but for a delightful reason and that would be one of our founders giving birth to a beautiful baby boy.
Another addition to the site was the family owned award winning, HS Hotels. All three HS Hotels are set in perfectly kept buildings with lavish bedrooms, super modern spas with an extensive range of treatments and most delicious food to ever meet your pallet. Ballifscourt – This timeless beauty is located on 30 acres of private parkland. It is the perfect merge of medieval and modern to create a truly exquisite hotel, spa and restaurant.
Ockenden Manor – An Elizabethan manor house set on perfectly manicured grounds. 28 immaculate bedrooms, an ultra-modern spa with an outdoor pool and the most beautiful fine dining restaurant.
Spread Eagle – With bags of history dating back to 1430, this charming 39-bedroom coaching inn is set in the picturesque town of Midhurst. With a Scandinavian style spa and relaxed candlelit restaurant, this is ideal spot if you want to unwind.
As summer came to an end the newly opened The Peacock Rooms in Sevenoaks joined us. Sarah, the salon owner and her very gifted team will make you feel and look like a superstar. They offer services from hair, beauty, male grooming, make up and wedding services. And just so you know, Sarah’s work has featured in Vogue!
We welcomed the elegant Owl House to the site. A relaxing day spa set in the unspoilt Derbyshire countryside. They have heavenly packages for all occasions, many package add on treatments, a hot tub to enjoy a glass (or two) of bubbles and the most stunning outdoor area to just sit back and switch off.
As the leafs feel from the trees and the air got a little colder, it was our much-loved time of the year and of course, Olympia Beauty time. We were introduced to the vegan friendly and cruelty free nail brand FABY. They offer a massive range of colours and nail care products at good prices. The colour lasted extremely long and knowing that it is a toxic free and not tested on animals, this is our favourite nail brand.
If you are looking for a salon that will make you feel like a VIP, then Nottingham's Beauty Temple promises to do just that. With some treatments called "Royal Service" "Royal Gathering" or even "Queen Mum To Be", we know that the Beauty Temple's clients will leave feeling a million dollars. Adding to the glamour is their very own champagne and cocktail bar.
Located perfectly in central London is FE Hair and Beauty. This beautiful salon offers everything you could possibly need for a full pampering session, from specialist hair treatments, a huge array of beauty treatments, semi-permanent make up and to feel extra glamourous, make up packages and lessons. They also sell a wide range of luxury homecare products that will leave your hair looking beautiful and salon fresh.
When you think of luxury, Harley Street springs to mind and to our delight one of the best joined us, the stunning LINIA Skin Clinic. They offer treatments for all skin issues, whether you want skin rejuvenation, anti-aging, removal of unwanted hairs, to plump you lips or even have breast surgery, LINIA Skin Clinic will be your place to go. If you are stuck with what treatment to have, then book in a consultation and speak to the experts.
Another award winner joined us and that would be The Beauty Island Sanctuary, Worthing. They have everything you could possibly want and need from a town centre day spa. Hair and beauty treatments, spa packages and their very own spa zone with hydro pool, sauna and relax loungers. They offer a wide range of party packages such as birthdays, hen groups and even for the groom. This is the ideal venue if you are celebrating and or just want to be treated by award winning hands.
Our last visit of the year was to the newly opened Mayfair Aesthetics based in Islington. Here we were treated like one of the many celebrities that have passed through their doors. We had the exclusive Soprano Ice Platinum NIR Facial. We refer to this treatment as “the one that keeps giving” because your skin is simply glowing and ‘facial-fresh’ for weeks after. Mayfair Aesthetics offer lots of treatments at competitive rates, in a relaxing comfortable environment.
These are just a few of the fabulous salons, clinics and spas that have joined us in 2016 but you can browse the 200 plus businesses, by selecting the categories on our home page to narrow your search. Don’t forget to mention Pamper Pages when booking and please leave a review after your visit on their profile.
We expect big things in 2017 and would like to say a huge thank you to you, our readers and website visitors for making our first full year in business be a truly magical one.
We hope your festive period is full of love, happiness and relaxation… See you in next year.
Love PP xx
