“Get an effortlessly glamorous look when you opt for semi-permanent lashes. Wake up with beautiful lashes every day and cut out applying mascara. Semi-permanent lashes will make your eyes pop by both lengthening and volumizing your lashes. They are perfect for those that have a jam-packed event diary in the run up to Christmas, as you know that they will enhance your look. There is very little maintenance, all you need is a lash wand to brush lashes out to ensure they look their fluttery best.” – Shavata Singh owner of Shavata Brow Studio, Chiswick
"Getting your hair blowdried in the salon make a massive difference, whether it’s squeezing in a blow dry before work or having a hollywood wave for a party. It takes less time! Everyone is time shy these days and coming in for a professional blow dry will save you time in the long run, safe in the knowledge you’ll get better results than a DIY job at home. A professional blow-dry will also last longer – we know the tricks for getting a blow-dry to last, from the amount of heat used, to the brush size, to the product we apply and how. Just tell your stylist how long you want it to last (weather permitting of course!)" – Anna, The Lion and Fox, Farringdon
"With the festive period quickly approaching it's time to think about those eye catching, outfit matching party nails! We recommend opting for a gel polish manicure just before Christmas to last you through to the new year and why not jazz your talons up with a festive nail art finish or if that's to bold for you you can never go wrong with a touch of glitter. Our fave party season colours glistening golds, shimmering reds and molten Metallics." – Tinu Bello, Colourriot Nails
"Eyebrows provide a framework for the face and have the power to enhance your appearance. There's a range of treatments available to get your brow style in shape, and our Browgraphy treatment is a powerful duo. Featuring a colour tweak and brow shape, you can expect a total transformation as the shape and colour of your brows are reworked to perfection. Colour Tweak adjusts the colour of your brows to your preference, and it only takes 10-15 minutes to alter your appearance. Lighter brows have a softening effect while darker brows sharpen features and add definition. Tweaking your brows to the right colour is essential to overall facial balance. Brow Shaping is a necessity for perfectly tinted brows to be groomed and shaped to complement your facial features. We all need a Brow job this party season!" – Chermaine Kyriacou, Browhaus UK
"All women want to look as flawless, glowy and smooth as possible on a night out and this cannot be achieved following traditional hair-removal techniques such as shaving. The sugaring technique is an all-natural solution that will guarantee a smoother and less painful solution keeping the skin soft and supple days after the treatment. Sugaring removes hair in its normal direction of growth, which helps reduce hair breakage, irritation and clients rarely experience ingrown hairs after." Ioana, Luxury Wax Bar Farringdon
"One of the common concerns we hear during winter is 'I don't want to look too dark or orange', and this calls for a professional hand blended or lighter spray tan, that works with even the palest of skin types. If you want darker legs and a light glow on the face, this is where professional tans really make a difference as we can target and contour to your natural body tone, achieving the most gorgeous, even tan with no tell tale signs. We like to "double spray", applying a fine mist as the first layer and then going in a second time to achieve that bespoke glow, so whether you want a sun kissed barely there glow or a statement tan that says "I've just stepped off a cruise ship" there is a tan out there for everyone." – Joanna, Fox Tanning
