Give your lashes the WOW factor!
LVL (Lift, volume, length) is a lash treatment that works on the client’s own natural lashes. No extensions, no damage and little maintenance! The procedure involves the lashes being lifted from the root to create length and lift, giving the client longer looking lashes without the use of mascara. A volumising product is used on the lashes to enhance volume and create a fuller and thicker lash effect. A tint is also included in the treatment to add extra definition and to give the look of mascara. LVL is a perfect treatment for anyone, particularly contact lens wearers, if you are a keen ‘gym goer’ or swimmer or if you are just short of time for morning make up application!  It is a really comfortable to have done as your eyes are closed throughout, making it relaxing and a pleasurable treatment!'  The treatment last 6-8 weeks.  £45.  60mins.  *48 Hour patch test required.  You cannot get your lashes wet for 24 hours after the treatment so just plan your hair wash beforehand.!

Bamboo Massage
Bamboo Massage available from 12th February!
For centuries, bamboo has had a wide range of uses from fishing rods to Shinai swords in Japan, but we have a much gentler and relaxing use for the canes with our new bamboo massage treatment.  The bamboo canes are gently warmed to give a deep firm massage to release tension and easing knots.
This ancient Asian therapy takes an holistic approach, focusing on treating your mind, body and spirit, helping to relieve stress, improve posture and give deep muscle relaxation giving you a greater sense of well being.  The combination of using hands on therapy with varying sizes of bamboo cane allow for a deeper kneading of muscle tissue with the canes being rolled over the body.  Together with the use of aromatherapy oils you will feel rejuvenated and relaxed with a calmer being!
Full Body £60. 75mins
Back massage £35. 30mins.
A Great gift for Valentine's!

Wedding make-up trends 2014
We just love meeting brides-to-be and showing them the different options available for their wedding day make-up. Our trained staff offer a make-up lessons and professional make-up for the entire bridal party.

bareMinerals is our chosen range, as it is a pure mineral lightweight make-up suitable for all skin types and gives a dewy healthy glow to the skin. In this blog we’ve taken a look at the trends that are dominating 2014.

A staple product in most of our bags is the black liner, and this can be translated into your wedding day look, with a thin feline flick from the corner of each eye – giving a subtle, yet distinctive look.

If you’re going for a minimal make-up look, then perfectly groomed eyebrows are a must, with most designers and artists favouring larger brows to give greater definition on the eye area. But don’t worry if you haven’t naturally got thicker brows, our team can create this look for you.

We’ve seen a greater focus on bridesmaid make-up so far in 2014, and this largely looks at creating an impact without overshadowing the bride. A really interesting way to do this is with lipstick, using a bright pink or orange lipstick to give definition.

The team here at Touch of Glamour love keeping up-to-date with the latest trends and styles that are dominating the catwalk. So whatever look you want to achieve, give the team a call to book your free 30 minute consultation to colour match the right products to your skin tone.

5 tips to look after your Shellac nails
Those of us who remember the pain of acrylic nails will feel delighted about the option of Shellac. A 14 day nail varnish that is cured under UV light for lasting shine. Your lifestyle is likely to affect how well your Shellac will last, however we’ve compiled a list of hints and tips to help you get the most from your nails:

1. Jewels not tools
A phrase we often use is ‘jewels not tools’ and it’s true. Simple everyday tasks like opening a can will really damage the appearance of your Shellac nails and even damage your natural nail. Wear gloves when cleaning or washing up and avoid harsh chemicals.

2. Cuticle oil
Use this to feed your nails with the moisture they need to avoid cracking or lifting. We would advise using a moisturiser in the day time to keep your hands hydrated and then choose a heavier cuticle oil to use just before you go to bed.

3. Changing colours
If you’ve got a specific outfit you want to wear but your nails really don’t match; you can paint over your Shellac manicure – just remember to use a non-acetone nail varnish remover. If changing the colour of your nails within two weeks is important, why not try a clear Shellac colour or light nude, as this will give a better finish when you add other colours.

4. Holiday
Sun exposure, sun tan oils, insect repellents and swimming pools can all fade your chosen Shellac colour. Make sure you dry your hands and nails after swimming, and wash your hands thoroughly after applying any oils or repellents.

5. Removal
We know how tempting it can be if one of your nails lift at an edge to pull the entire thing off. And then why stop at just one nail – you suddenly find yourself surrounded by Shellac varnish and your severely damaged nails. Removing your Shellac at home may damage the surface of your nails, defeating the purpose of the Shellac system. Call your beauty salon and book in to have them professionally removed.
