Afternoon pampering...

Hi everyone, I hope that you are all well. You know those times when everything in life gets so busy that you feel almost that you do not have a moment to yourself? Well that is how things have been for me lately and although I have enjoyed being so busy writing and travelling here and there, it was the perfect timing yesterday when I was able to go for an afternoon of luxurious pampering at Beauty and Holistic Lounge. The salon is located on the historic Water Street in Liverpool, just a stone's throw from the Town Hall, so it is the ideal spot to head to for some pampering when you have a night out in the city planned! I was booked in for a blow dry and a shellac manicure so I headed along looking forward to relaxing.
I was warmly welcomed and offered a choice of drinks before I was given a tour of the salon by the lovely co-owner Lisa. Beauty and Holistic Lounge is stunningly decorated with chandeliers, crushed velvet booth seats and luxurious themed rooms which offer a choice of treatments such as chocolate scented waxing!

There is a variety of treatments on offer at the salon such as waxing, spray tans, HD Brows, non-surgical facelifts, hair colouring and styling. I was so impressed by the range available and I think that I will be popping in frequently from now on!

My treatments started off with a blow dry, my hair was washed and conditioned with luxury L'Oreal salon shampoo and conditioner which felt so soothing and smelled amazing. I could have happily drifted off to sleep I was feeling so chilled out! Next it was on to the blow dry itself and I could not wait to see what the results would be. My hair is naturally wavy but over the years I have become expert at blow drying it straight at home. I have never had the famous 'curly blow' which is so popular in Liverpool, so I decided to choose that, because I always wear my hair straight usually.

I watched captivated as my experienced stylist expertly began to section off my hair and blow dry each section in to a soft wave using special ceramic brushes which are left in your hair momentarily in order to hold the style.

 Bit by bit, my dry and unruly hair was transformed in to a silken mane which would have impressed Rapunzel herself... all I needed was a handsome prince! My stylist and her colleagues complimented my ombre hair, but I explained that the only down side to ombre hair is that my hair feels dry and damaged from the bleaching at the ends. Nevertheless, I was thrilled by my soft and bouncy locks after the blow dry, my hair went from straw to silk, what a result! I will definitely be back again soon, my hair was so full of volume and I felt like I was ten years younger which is always a good thing!

Next it was time to get my nails done, so I chose a beautiful vampy dark red colour similar to the Chanel Rouge Noir everyone went crazy for years ago. I was given a Shellac gel manicure which is so good because it lasts for two weeks without chipping, smudging or fading. I have never had a gel manicure before and the technician talked me through every step whilst I sipped a lovely cup of coffee.

 I was thrilled with the effect and it looked so glossy, rich and pretty. I just could not wait to show off the results! I just cannot recommend Beauty and Holistic Lounge enough, the staff were so friendly and helpful and they made me feel really welcome and chatted to me throughout my treatments. I was delighted with the results and I left feeling years younger and thoroughly revitalised by such a wonderful experience.

What do you all think, would you like to relax and enjoy some pampering treatments at Beauty and Holistic Lounge, and would you have your hair dried in to the famous 'curly blow'? 
As always I can't wait to read your thoughts and thank you so much for reading this post!
