Manicure & Pedicure
Massaging with cream increases the blood circulation in hands, using acupressure techniques, which improves the health of skin. Any damages in nails like fragile tips, wear and tear, and splits can be prevented. Hangnails are removed and future one are prevented. Your hands will look tidy with shaped and strong nails with glow. Use of wax, oils, creams to cleanse, exfoliate and improve the texture of nails and skin.
Refreshing Manicure or Pedicure: If you are new to receiving manicures, it’s best to start with a typical basic manicure, without all the extras. A nail technician will apply a cream, oil, or lotion to the cuticles first, and place the hands into a dish of warm water for about five minutes to soak. After the soaking process is over and the cuticles have been tamed, the technician will dry the hand, and ask what nails and length you prefer. You can choose from square, oval, squoval (a combination of square and oval), or the popular stiletto shape. You will receive a little hand massage to stimulate your blood circulation that will help to grow your nails stronger. At the end of the manicure your nails will be painted with nail polish (colour or french). This basic Manicure treatment is the best option when you really need cuticle work. With a Pedicure your feet will be soaked in warm water, after 10 minutes the technician will dry your feet. The nail technician scrubs your feet to rid them of any dead skin or imperfections. The technician then clips and files your toenails and briefly massages your legs and feet before applying a soothing lotion. Finally, your toenails are painted with a base coat, main coat and top coat of polish.
Mini Manicure: The best solution when you cannot paint your nails on your own. A base coat will be applied first and the technician will shape your nails. After that, a polish of your choice is applied usually twice. Finally, a top coat is applied. When the nails dry you can enjoy your beautiful nails.
Luxury Manicure or Pedicure: Starting similar to the Refreshing Manicure, the treatment includes soak, cuticle work and shape. Your hand will be exfoliated to remove dead skin cells, giving you fresh looking skin. Long massages will include hand and arms. For skin conditioning we will use a hand mask for 10 minutes to achieve healthy looking nails and skin. If you are struggling for hand pain or rheumatic pain after all day working on computer this treatment is the best for you.
Some manicures can include the nail art or applying small imitation of jewels. Other nail treatments may include the application of artificial nail gels, tips, or Acrylics Nails.
Originating from Asia and India, Threading is a method of hair removal in which unwanted hairs are plucked out by using a twisted cotton thread. In threading, a thin (cotton or polyester) thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the folliece level. Unlike tweezing where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair.
There are a few different techniques for threading. These include the hand method, mouth method and neck. Each technique has advantages and disadvantages; however, the mouth holding method is the fastest and most precise. Threading allows for a more defined and precise shape, can create better definition for eyebrows. It’s also used as a method of removing unwanted hair on the entire face and upper lip area. Threading is not a good method for removing hair on arms or legs, as the hair in those regions is typically quite coarse and there is too much to remove.
It’s the best alternative to tweezing and waxing, recommended for sensitive skin. Unlike waxing, threading does not remove a layer of skin, which can leave the skin on your face susceptible to sun damage.
Threading is comparable to tweezing or waxing. You may feel a pinching or light scraping sensation, but most customers agree that threading is no more uncomfortable than other hair removal methods.
Microdermabrasion can help improve the skin appearance by reducing fine lines, early sun damage, and mild, shallow acne marks. Skin may become noticeably smoother even after one treatment and better absorb moisturisers. Microdermabrasion is pain-free and a very relaxing treatment that has long lasting results.

Length and Trimming: Hair cutting or hair trimming is intended to create or maintain a specific shape and form. Its extent may range from merely trimming the uneven ends of the hair to a uniform length to completely shaving the head.

Hairpieces (clip in) or strips of hair of good quality are readily available these days, they are very easy to use and can create some fabulous results. They can be added to achieve your dream look.
Foils: Used to highlight or color the hair with multiple colors to keep them separate. Your hairs are divided into thin sections, a foil is placed under that section and the bleach or color is applied and the foil is folded to hold it in place and keep the product in.
Blow dry: Moisture and heat together can cause hair to temporarily change shape. When we change the shape of hair, we are altering the bonds on the cortex. The process of perming breaks and reforms the hair permanently. Blow-drying changes the shape only for a while.
