The visit was fine and Rita pleasant but results and the after care advice are not. By the time I got home half an hr later, when I looked in the mirror I was horrified to see one side of my face had erupted into huge red blisters though the other side which had equal treatment did not. I looked online for advice to see that this can happen, but the recommendation to just use water for aftercare is quite insufficient. As advised online by various sites I have gently applied an antiseptic spray but not rubbed them or picked at them. The blisters have now scabbed over. Not v attractive! I had no idea this could result from electrolysis and it's unfortunately meant changes to my calendar for a few days. To reduce the after effects I think the clinic should stock appropriate after care products.
Great staff, lovely salon, very knowledgable, would recommend
This must be the worst clinic I've been to. I've been having my brows threaded for years, and decided to use Ritz as they are close to work. BIG MISTAKE
Rita let me leave the salon, having not even taken any of my details or let me look in a mirror. When I got to work someone pointed out my brows were uneven, so I looked in a mirror to see one side was quite a bit thicker than the other, bearing in mind all I wanted was a brow tidy.
I called the salon who agreed I could go back in to have them evened out. Again Rita was about to let me leave the salon having not looked in a mirror so I DEMANDED a mirror. She fumbled around in another room and came back with a mirror and not only had she evened the brows up, but she had almost butchered them, the thick side was now even thinner than the previously thin side!
I told her I wasn't happy and she said she was following my natural curve although I did point out, it doesn't follow the curve and I've never had them this thin. It is part of my acting/ model contract that I have a certain size/ thickness brow so I will now lose out on work!
She was adement they look good but I reiterated they're not level! I then asked to see qualifications/ certificates... plenty but mainly years old and clearly this place is out of practice and careless.
It was suggested I use a brow pencil, however the purpose of pencils is to fill gaps in, not to make them thicker.
Moral of the story
STEER WELL CLEAR

Great Salon - I have had a few treatments here and all the staff are very professional and offer the right advice. I'm a redhead, so Laser won't remove my hairs... some salons will try to convince you that it will, but Laser doesn't work on everyone which is why it is important to find someone who can do Electrolysis!
