Looking Good In Glasgow















Bein
g a blogger has made me very aware of the way I look. Yes I know that sounds really vain, but it is true. Getting photographed a lot does that to you. I am one of those girls who is pretty rubbish at being a girl. I mean the shopping thing I have down, but the beauty side of being a girl......I suck!

Luckily for me I have so many amazing beauty blogger friends with a wealth of knowledge of the beauty industry. They are full of amazing recommendations for someone as clueless as me. After years of being very lazy when it comes to beauty I am starting to make an effort and look after myself.

We are absolutely spoiled for choice in Glasgow when it comes to beauty. For anyone looking for new places to visit then here are my recommendations to serve all your beauty needs from top to toe.

HAIR
Kevin O'Neill Hair Salon - Garth Street
This salon has been looking after my hair for the last year and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Over the last 6 months they have lifted my hair from an awful black box dye disaster to the light coloured wonder it is now. For the first time in years my hair grows and looks healthy. My hair is currently looked after by the amazing Ainsley (crazy hair cutting skills and the best fringe cutter in the WORLD!) - but the whole team are amazing! I wouldn't go anywhere else for my hair.

WAXING AND BEAUTY

Peaches Wax and Beauty Bar - Parnie Street
The only salon in Glasgow to visit for all your waxing needs. Ask for a waxing recommendation in Glasgow and this salon will be mentioned time and time again. The salon also offers Billion Dollar Brows, which I am desperately trying to grow my eyebrows for, and also the amazing LVL Lashes, which I also need! You only need to read the comments from previous clients on the website to see why this salon is so popular.

BEAUTY PRODUCTS
Lush - Buchanan StreetI will be honest - I avoided Lush for so long due to the hype surrounding it and because I didn't want a bath bomb - I hate baths. But on visiting the store recently I realised there is more to Lush than bath bombs - a lot more - specifically their amazing skincare range. I recommend you visit the store and speak to a member of staff rather than going on other peoples recommendations, everyone's skin is different. The staff are so well trained and their love for the products shows in their enthusiasm. I am now on my second lot of products from the store and loving everything I have been trying. There are a few Lush stores in Glasgow but I have much love for the Buchanan Street store and the staff for their amazing recommendations.

NAILS
Sacha Nails - (Just off) Buchanan Street
Sacha is amazing at what she does - her work really speaks for itself. My gel nails from Sacha lasted for ages and never chipped the whole time I had them on and even then I only had to remove them due to nail growth. I already have my appointment booked for my nails for Disneyland in September. Disney nails of course. Sacha is also a qualified make-up artist so can look after your makeover needs too. Oh and an added bonus - you may be lucky enough to visit the salon when Sacha's dog Rolo is there - cuteness overload.

PAMPER
Pure Spa Glasgow - West Nile Street
Last week I was lucky enough to be invited by Pure Spa to try out their Elemis Face and Body Sensation which is two therapies in one - a hot stone massage followed by an Elemis power booster facial. This was my first visit to a spa for a treatment and I was not disappointed. From the moment I arrived at the salon I felt completely at ease and the staff were lovely. After changing into my robe it was time for a quick foot massage then onto the bed for my first treatment - the hot stone massage. My therapist Diane was amazing and I loved every minute of the treatment - even when she was removing the awful knots in my back. Then it was onto the facial. Diane asked about my skin and then devised a skincare plan to help with any problems and these products were used during my facial. My skin was absolutely glowing afterwards. There are so many treatments available and I think everyone should treat themselves to spa day out at Pure Spa. I cannot wait to go back.

So ladies (and gents) you know what to do - treat yourself with one of my beauty recommendations. Please let me know if you have any other great places I need to try out in Glasgow.

Until next time - love, peace and sparkles...
