Catch Beau Nails & Beauty in Sussex Living:
January 2015 by Sasha Kanal
If you’re looking to book in some ‘me time’ this 2015, then discover the peaceful and elegant haven that is Beau Nails & Beauty. Newly opened in November 2014, this stylish salon offers an extensive array of treatments from manicures and pedicures to facials, hot stone massage and male grooming; all done with a bespoke approach.
Formerly manager at Tips and Toes in the Orchards, Charlotte Walker and her bubbly team pride themselves in their expertise and wealth of knowledge when it comes to all things beauty.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ attitude here. For Charlotte, the emphasis is on customizing the treatments to a person’s specific needs. “I love building a rapport with my customers and offering them advice, whether it’s about nail care or the best cleansing regime for their skin.
Our aim is to impart our vast skills and years of experience to customers, so they leave the salon happy and content.”
Beau Nails & Beauty is the only salon in the area that uses the acclaimed Dermalogica range in its facials and has a large range of its products on sale within the salon. Charlotte and her team of five are committed to using products of the highest quality, such as CND Shellac and OPI for nails. Indeed, Beau Nails & Beauty consider themselves the experts in acrylic and gel nail enhancements.
Some have said that acrylics can potentially damage nails but Charlotte points out that with the right application and care this needn’t be the case. Also on the treatment menu is the more cutting-edge Lava Shells Relax Massage, which is proving hugely popular among clients.
One of only a few salons to offer this unique treatment, the Lava Shell Massage is an alternative to hot stone massage and uses smooth, self-heating tiger clam shells applied to the skin. As well as warming the muscles for deep relaxation, the natural mineral heat in the shells means there is continuous heat throughout the treatment ensuring a seamless massage.
The salon itself is spacious and bright with two treatment rooms.
There is a chatty and friendly atmosphere inside and despite the salon’s well-appointed air, it never feels intimidating.
The star of the show has to be the beautifully designed raised ‘stage area’ where clients enjoy their pedicures in comfy and stylish chairs overlooking the salon.
The whole experience has a luxurious feel to it, designed for the comfort of both the therapist and the client.
In fact, everything on offer at Beau Nails & Beauty is an experience, and a beautiful one at that.
