It is always nice to discover beauty salons on your doorstep so I was delighted to be contacted by the owner of ‘Pin Up Beauty’ which is a gem found on Great George Street Leeds.
Pin Up Beauty is located very conveniently close to the iconic Millennium Square in Leeds just below Whiteley Hair Studio. It was officially opened in July 2013 by Award Winning Beauty Therapist Lorna Devlin, the founder of the business. She offers a good selection of different treatments with the mission of embracing clients into her very cosy environment. She thoroughly enjoys doing everything she has to offer and is a specialist in hair removal.
The eye enhancement treatment I had was insertion of individual lashes with the ‘Lets go Lashes’ from Nouveau. I am familiar with this brand and know they are super good! I have very twitchy eyes especially if I have to sit still for a long periods of time but I felt completely at ease and didn’t experience any discomfort at all. How cool is that ring adhesive holder? Okay, I am easily amused 😀
Black and multi-coloured Nouveau lashes! Trinidad Carnival 2014… here I come!!!
The finished look was very natural indeed so very practical for working on placement. They last for a good 2 weeks and cost £30*. If you wish for professional lash removal it is free of charge to ensure the natural lashes stay safe and healthy. Next time, maybe for a special occasion, I would want to try thicker/more lashes for added volume.
Lorna’s hair removal services range from £10-£68 and even does Intense Pulsed Light treatments. Other services like tanning, dermalogica teatments, massages, manicures and pedicures are available too. Details of treatment packages a prices can be found on the website.
My friend Sokar was treated to the Vinylux manicure £16*. The colour that she picked was ‘Black Pool #105’ which suited her perfectly and the finish of the vinylux was so shiny and glossy. What I learnt about Vinylux is that it does not need a base coat and is a long lasting, natural light securing polish. It is resistance to chips over time so has better qualities than a normal polish and easier to remove than shellac. A ‘weekly top coat’ was applied and a gorgeous scented speed spray/conditioner polish dryer was spritzed. It contained almond oil which is great for the nail beds. She was ready for a evening of dining.
