What my clients say

  • Alyson Helen
    I've been seeing Lyn for about 6 months now for waxing and LVL lashes and she is the best!! Makes everything quick and painless and she is great chat too! We always have a great laugh and she makes you feel totally comfortable. I've been to lots of different salons in the past but wouldn't go anywhere else now. Thanks again Lyn!

    I never ever thought I'd say this, but I actually look forward to my waxing appointments! Lyn is so welcoming, so quick and uses the best supplies. That, combined with her chat, makes for a grand afternoon which I know sounds mental as it involves having hair ripped out but believe me, this girl has it sorted. I used to go for the odd Groupon waxing package and every time would dread even making eye contact with the therapist afterwards and resort back to razors and after the more aggressive ones a bottle of wine and a wee cry (I'm seriously the biggest softie out). I  came across Lyn by chance the week before my wedding and have been going back regular ever since and would never go anywhere else! Only time I'm crying is with laughter ! She's a hoot and one of the hardest working business women I know !!!

    I've been coming to Lyn now for almost a year and I will never go elsewhere for a wax again. Previously I've dreaded wax day and ended up cancelling and heading to Boots for a razor. But Lyn does such a good job at making you comfortable that I've never looked back. Best there is! Get booked in xxx

    Went along today for some LVL lashes. Lyn is brilliant. The banter is top notch and lashes were fantastic. I have a particularly difficult lash as I have a wee watery eye but Lyn talked me through it and performed the treatment beautifully. As a fellow therapist it's lovely to find someone with the same work ethic, no awkwardness and happy to share tips. Will be recommending Lyn to my own clients. Xx

    Been coming to Lyn for a while now and wouldn't go anywhere else, makes you feel so at ease and relaxed, could chat to her all day! She's amazing at her job and so happy with everything every time I leave. Couldn't recommend her enough

    Hell yeah! I was a bit sceptical giving the LVL treatment another bash after having had meh results in other places in the past. I checked out a few FB pages incl. there before & after photos and Lyn's really did look WOWZERS. Being a specialised lash tech myself I was looking for the best of the best...so chuffed I chose her, she took her time doing my lashes justice! She really knew what she was on about, gave me all the proper after care and retail product necessary to maintain the results at home. Will be back for my 2nd app in a couple of months! Thanks Lyn xx

    I cannot rate this salon highly enough for waxing. Lyn is a true expert in the field - do not even waste your time or money going anywhere else!
  • Aileen Johnson
    Lyn is the most talented waxer there is. Pretty much painless! Lyn herself is the best part - you forget what's happening while she distracts you with her deadly chat! Wouldn't go anywhere else .

  • Emma Fry
    After not having a wax for a while I am so glad I came back! Painless waxing, great chat, and felt like I was getting my own therapy session too! Lyn is a fantastic person, amazing and incredibly fast with immaculate results while providing hilarious chat throughout. But Lyn also acts like a friend and gives you confidence boost for when you leave the salon. I will as ever keep returning and recommending. 10/10. Emma x
