The turkey’s ordered, the wine rack is replenished and my presents are bought, and finding their way under the tree. But I’ve left a couple of things to the very last minute – as always – and this week has seen a flurry of phonecalls as I’ve been trying to snag some last-minute beauty appointments. Seriously, my roots…! In the spirit of caring and sharing, I thought I’d open up my little black book…
- Ebano hairdressing has recently expanded with the opening of The Clinic @ Ebano, based above the hair and beauty salon in Ballinteer. They now offer a full range of high-end skin and brow treatments as well as laser, hair, nails and tan. To celebrate the opening they kindly invited me in to treat my tresses and I credit them with getting my hair colour looking just about the best it has in 2015.
- One of my favourite ever facials has to be the Vit Illume treatment at River Medical (above left) and I recently paid the lovely Ailish another visit. Combining lymphatic drainage, exfoliation and an incredibly hydrating cocktail of vitamins, peptides, anti-oxidants and hyaluronic acid, this is a high-performance facial that delivers immediate and noticeable results. You’ll walk away with brighter, smoother, clearer and plumped-up skin. Check out my full review.
- I’ve been a fan of Nail Chic since my first visit, several years ago and have frequently returned for shellac and pre-holiday spray tans. This Parnell Street salon represents great value and they’re open till 7 most nights. The staff are lovely - bubbly, professional and hard-working – and they run frequent special offers and discounts throughout the year. Follow them on Facebook to be the first to hear; my Christmas manicure and lash extensions were on offer at €60.
