Semi­lac pedi­cure

available na­tion­wide, prices vary “I’ve long been a con­vert to gel ma­nis, but with sum­mer ÀQDOO\ XSRQ XV , GHFLGHG to have gel pol­ish on my toes, too. I se­lected Semi­lac as my brand of choice due to the amaz­ing ar­ray of colours and the promised long-wear – and I cer­tainly wasn’t dis­ap­pointed by the GXUDELOLW\ 7KUHH ZHHNV of swim­ming, danc­ing at wed­dings and sev­eral long walks later, my pedi­cure was still beau­ti­fully in­tact. I es­chewed the tra­di­tional bridal shades and opted for a bright sparkling blue that I knew would look amaz­ing pool­side, and I’ll never go on hol­i­day with­out gelSROLVKHG WRHV DJDLQ , KHDGHG sadly back to the sa­lon for my re­moval ap­point­ment – apart from nat­u­ral nail re­growth, the gels were still in per­fect con­di­tion.”

Re­liev­ing & Ton­ing Black Leg Masque Treat­ment

£95 for 70 mins, available na­tion­wide at Mar­garet Dabbs Lon­don clin­ics “While your legs are likely to be cov­ered by a long gown on your wed­ding day, they’ll be see­ing some sun on your hon­ey­moon, so this treat­ment is just the ticket to get them look­ing silky. It’s de­signed to re­lieve fa­tigued and heavy legs by re­duc­ing swelling, in­creas­ing cir­cu­la­tion, and sooth­ing and cool­ing the skin. It started with a ton­ing scrub to boost cir­cu­la­tion, fol­lowed by the Black Leg Masque, which was pleas­ingly cool­ing DQG WLQJO\ 7KH WUHDWPHQW ended with a leg mas­sage with Firm­ing Leg Serum and an ap­pli­ca­tion of Glow Leg Spray to give in­stant il­lu­mi­na­tion. I walked out of the sa­lon want­ing to show off my legs im­me­di­ately – ZKLFK ZDV D ÀUVW IRU PH μ

The Gen­tly Magic Wash

£50 for 45 mins at Hari’s Hair­dressers, Ful­ham “Sun­shine and swim­ming wreak havoc on hair, so it makes sense to treat your tresses be­fore head­ing off to warmer climes. I ar­rived with rather dis­tressed hair, so was ready to im­prove its con­di­tion with the sa­lon’s herbal hair treat­ments, which prom­ise to cure dry, frizz-prone hair. Post­sham­poo, a paste made from NDWLUD SODQW ÁDNHV IURP WKH Mid­dle East was mas­saged in. I re­laxed un­der a heat lamp for the time of two cups of tea (20 mins) be­fore head­ing back to the sink for a rinse, a won­der­fully long head mas­sage, and a blow dry. I left with the soft­est, shini­est hair – and the blow dry was still look­ing JRRG ÀYH GD\V ODWHU 7KLV LV per­fect for pre-hon­ey­moon DQG GHÀQLWHO\ ZRUWK D UHSHDW visit on your re­turn home.”
