Although usually I head to Brent Cross for shopping it was nice to spend the day there getting pampered and theres a lot of choice all under one roof. You can have your hair, fake tan and nails done or pop by for a massage and facial. I was lucky enough to have a facial at Decleor in John Lewis, a treatment and blow dry in Toni & Guy, my makeup done at Nars (John Lewis) and a finishing hour spent with their personal shopper.
I hadn’t had a facial in a little while so the Decleor one was much appreciated. John Lewis has a variety of rooms around for private treatment for different brands which is nice as you can get your facial from one company and massage from another if you wish all whilst picking up a new dress and shoes. I also had a mini massage to go along with it which was bliss!
I then headed over for a blow dry at Toni & Guy which was nice as my hair was a little messed up from the facial (which is to be expected) with a really lovely stylist (if only I could remember her name!) but after that it was straight to Nars for Makeup which I was desperately in need of.
At Nars I met with one of their makeup artists who done the whole of my makeup and taught me so much. I wasn’t a huge Nars lover before hand but Nars has now well and truly made it into my makeup bag (I’m sure I’ll share lots within the next few weeks).
Lastly I met with Gayle Rinkoff who is Brent Cross’s personal stylist. I didn’t have a full on experience like you would if your were to personally to book Gayle Rinkoff as I had already bought all my holiday clothes and wasn’t looking to spend too much money. However Gayle Rinkoff helped me buy a great new denim shirt which I had been searching for for a while. We actually found it in GAP and it was perfect but I very rarely shop in GAP so probably wouldn’t have found it by myself. Gayle showed me what she does with her clients and it looks perfect if you feel you have lost your way a little or simply need a little help updating your wardrobe. I also think it would make a great present for someone who has possibly been struggling a little with their style or as a nice treat to someone who just needs some retail therapy!
I then went of for some quick lunch before heading home fully pampered and ready to go on holiday!
Brent Cross is a great place to head for a full day of pampering! Park your car outside and head inside where you can pick and chose what treatment you want and from which brand. Great to indulge in some food and shopping too!
