Deluxe French Manicure

A standard french manicure is for those who would like to tidy up their nails, cuticles, and hands, finished with a french polish for neatness. There are usually extras with a deluxe, like a hand massage and soak!

Express Manicure

An express manicure will tidy your hands and nails in the same way as a deluxe manicure, without all the fancy massaging and soaking. It’s literally a quick in and out job, but the salon might paint your nails for free depending on how they do business.

Acrylic Nail Extensions

This is for ladies who want some extra length on their stubby nails when they just won’t seem to grow. With acrylic, you can also choose from a variety of shapes, most of which wouldn’t last on your normal nails. Be careful who you visit for these treatments though, as some non standard salons can use harmful products.


An overlay is for ladies who are happy with the natural shape of their own nail, they just need a little added strength. Colour will last longer on these too!

Gel Polish

Gel polish is the perfect treatment for ladies who don’t need length or strength, and just want a nice, long lasting colour. Most gel polish treatments last up to 2 weeks, so you can forget about topping up any chips!

A Spray Tan

A spray tan might sound scary at first, but your therapist has seen it all before. It’s the safest, easiest way to get a bronze glow and only takes around 15 minutes.

Full Body Massage

A full body massage is perfect for those who have aches and pains, perhaps from the gym or the stresses of daily life. This is one of the most sought after beauty therapy treatments.

Indian Head

An Indian head massage concentrates on the face, neck, shoulders, and scalp – perfect for those who seem to have constant tension in those areas. It’s very relaxing and has been said to promote hair growth.

Aromatherapy Massage

An aromatherapy massage is a slightly gentler massage than the full body, as the focus is on the amazing smelling oils the therapist is using. A combination is usually specially chosen to suit you, and what you hope to achieve from the massage, whether that’s a sense of well being or a feeling of being uplifted.

Depending on the salon you go to, many other kinds of beauty treatments will be offered. These are simply the treatments that people get most confused about! Thanks for reading and I hope I’ve helped you to choose a treatment perfect for you.
