They didn't last quite as long as usual although mine do usually last until they grow out so that might be a bit unfair! There's a great range of colours so lots to choose from and the staff are friendly. It is very reasonably priced too and they didn't mind taking off a few scraps left from my old polish either.

Good value and friendly staff - threading was quick and not too painful! I would definitely recommend Essential - they won't over thread though so if you want a change make sure your tell the person doing the treatment!

Excellence value and service - the person who did my facial was very knowledgable and left my skin feeling well cleansed and not at all greasy or tight which is what often happens at other salons. I would definitely recommend, the products are high quality, its excellent value and the staff really know what their doing and take their time with you.

Very good service and very friendly staff - quick and easy which is exactly what you need for a quick lunchtime thread and wax! I would definitely recommend Essential and will be back too.

I recommend the venue, it was nice, the staff were friendly etc. The treatment itself wasn't so great. The tan doesn't look very natural, I think in future I'll stick to better known brands such as St Tropez or fake bake. No sticky foot pads were provided so the soles of my feet are BLACK!...which has undone all the good work of my pedicure. For this reason alone I would not go back for this treatment at this venue. Even though the spray tan was super cheap it's a false economy as I now need to spend another £30 to have another pedicure as my feet are in such a state it's embarrassing.

Really great Brazilian wax- quick and pretty painless, plus helped tidy up a squinty mess left by a previous therapist in another salon. Thanks!
