Essex is known for being unapologetically glamorous and on trend, with beauty and grooming being at the top of our lists. Harlow, of course, has its own fair share of amazing beauty treatments, and we just had to share them with you!
The increasingly popular gel nails are loved by many acrylic converts for so many reasons. They have actually been on the scene since the 90s boasting a realistic natural vibe with a 2-3 week lasting shine, something that a traditional nail varnish just can’t do, no matter how many gloss overcoats! They dry instantly which is perfect for those shopping days so long gone are annoying smudges, damaged nail beds and cracks! From only £18 at the Superdrug Nail Bar, you can have these chip free nails in a range of colours and with a Superdrug beauty card on your visit you can receive a 20% discount!
If you’re not already obsessed with chrome nails, you are about to be! You can’t scroll through Instagram or Pinterest without coming across a rather satisfying transformation video. Celebs became obsessed with them in 2016 when Gigi Hadid rocked her futuristic nails on the Met gala red carpet, we knew they were here to stay. The mirrored look is achieved by using a metallic powder to buff the nails for an intense chrome finish. Metallic and foil wrapped nails have always been cool and edgy, but despite being quite the statement chrome nails are also very classy, especially when paired with a point. Harvey Nails offer chrome nails without the premium price tag and the technicians can give you any colour and undertone you like. If you do find yourself becoming a regular, they offer loyalty cards and discounts!
A well-groomed brow and flirty lashes have been in the spotlight for quite some time now, luckily a little tinting here and there can boost our au naturale confidence, giving naturally fuller looking brows and lashes. Sometimes we really do have to get up and go, with no time for a ‘no makeup’ makeup look. Fear not! tinting colour palettes range from platinum blonde to ash brown depending on what suits your hair colour and skin tone. Both lash and brow tints can last up to 4 weeks so welcome to a life of stress-free mornings! The Brow Bar at Superdrug offers high-quality tinting from only £8 along with threading, shaping and semi-permanent lash extensions, just walk in.
A little help in the tanning department is just another one of those ways to roll out of bed feeling just a little bit more like Beyoncé. We’re not talking about the orange spray tans that decorated every red carpet and school dance in the early 2000’s. The spray tans of today are subtler and more strategic. An airbrush tan not only adds a sun-kissed glow to your skin but can also be used to hide cellulite, stretch marks, and uneven skin tone. You can also contour your entire body with airbrush tanner (abs, arms, collarbones) to trick everyone into thinking you’ve been making the most of your gym subscription. The NYX Beautique nestled inside Legends hairdressers have the perfect spray tan products and booths which will ensure you’ll be ready for the Summer to arrive, in no time.
The classic Mani-Pedi is here to stay, especially during holiday season, there is nothing like a relaxing mini massage and exfoliation, followed by a classy French tip or nude polish. Not only that, pedicures are great for keeping our feet healthy; just what they need after what we put them through. Simple will always be appreciated but these days the more daring the better! Matching your hands and feet makes for a put together look, but there really isn’t a rulebook to follow.
The Nail Bar offers a luxurious and cosy mani-pedi experience with so many colour and style choices to choose from. But Try not to fall asleep!
Now that you know where to go, and what’s on offer in Harlow, what are you waiting for? Get pampered and beautified!
