Some Pre-Christmas Treatments

So I thought today I’d tell you about two treatments I had done recently.

The first I’ve had done before but Toni & Guy done such a good job that I thought we’d talk about it a little. I wanted something a little different for winter but went in without much of a plan. I went in to see An who is a colourist and stylist at Toni & Guy North Audley Street. We decided to go a little darker but keep a hint of the balayage towards the tips and just tidy the shape up a little. I wasn’t too happy with my previous cut and colour (which I had done elsewhere) but I love the current colour and shape. An also applied Olaplex, which if you haven’t tried, I honestly think it’s amazing and a must for coloured hair!

It’s also worth noting that they have a Fashion Fix Menu in-salon which is perfect for all your festive hair needs. You can choose from 24 key Blow Dry styles to statement up-do’s, all done within 30minutes.

Onto Nouveau Lashes LVL treatment…

I’ve had Nouveau Lash Extensions before and I liked them but felt that they were a little too much work for me but LVL, that I can get behind! It’s a semi-permanent treatment which straightens your natural lashes at the root (lifting them up, similar to curling your lashes with a lash curler), making them look longer and thicker. They also tint the lashes which creates a mascara-style look.

I went in for my treatment on Harley Street and was made to feel super comfortable. The beautician and I spoke through the treatment and decided to start with the medium size curl as some of my lashes are quite straight and they’re quite long so could end up printing onto my brow bone. It’s ever so slightly uncomfortable but pain-free and only took 45minutes which is much quicker than lash extensions.

The reason why I prefer it to lash extensions is because it requires less maintenance and only needs to be topped up every six or so weeks, the treatment is shorter and you’re free to use whatever products you want on your lashes after. Plus, I like that no one can say they’re fake as they’re completely real just enhanced. If you want the super thick effect lash extensions give you then these aren’t for you but if you want enhanced lashes that don’t require too much work I can’t recommend LVL enough! I’ll write a bit of an update after I’ve tried it a few more times to share my thoughts about how it wears and the effect on my lashes.

    Interesting! Sounds better than normal extensions indeed.
