Hello Lovies! 

Today I have a post for you on the fabulous Allure Academy & Spa, which is based in Walton, Liverpool. 

Now, I regularly walk past this salon, longing to go in, just by looking at the fabulous decor of the outside! So when I seen an offer online, for a cut, highlights and treatment and booked straight away. Usually, when booking a hair appointment in a new salon, I am a little apprehensive on going. I am one of those awkward people who never know what to say in small talk and totally not you average girlie girl customer, however as soon as I stepped in the door, I was made to feel as comfortable as possible. 

I booked in at reception and took a seat in the waiting area which is adorable! I was also offered a drink from a huge list of options. (The academy/Spa also has a cafe! DOUBLE WIN). I opted for a latte and it was delicious. 

Within five minutes, I was sat in the hair dressing chair talking to my lovely stylist about my new look. I explained that I wanted something new and fresh but to make all the straggly bits (my hair is awful due to medicines), look more healthy! We went through colours and styles and finally settled for a short bobbed look, with toffee and caramels in. 
Throughout my hair being pampered, I was offered magazines, drinks and generally felt so welcome and comfortable, which I find is very rare these days in Hair Salons. My finished look was amazing. I looked so fresh and different! Literally feeling like a new woman, I felt like I could take on the world!


I was looking at a few leaflets when leaving and noticed the salon also done beauty treatments, so I popped upstairs and was met by the lovely Vicki. Vicki owns the Academy and Spa and showed me around. The spa itself is adorable. It's modern, chic and stylish decor is just enough to make you feel glamours yet cosy at the same time. 

Vicki is beyond qualified, with 15 years experience, to train you on a new career or to develop your skills in the beauty industry. Vicki is also the 'Tibby Olivier' Trainer for Merseyside! 

A few of the courses available are:
Threading, spray tanning, make-up, facials, acrylic nails, waxing, massages and many many more! 

The Shrinking Violet body wrap has been a hot topic for beauty lovers for a few months, so I thought I would get the inside info for you guys! And YES! Vicki also does this treatment at her Spa. 

'Shrinking Violet fat loss body wraps work by lipolysis. It is a revolutionary method to remove unwanted fat. The fat is removed from the areas you want without effort or discomfort. Unwanted fat in difficult areas such as stomach, bottom, thighs, hips and upper arms are a big problem. Lipolysis offers pain free slimming and breaks down inside the actual fat cells where triglycerides are changed from free fatty acids so that they can be excreted in tissue fluid and further transported to the lymph vessels for disposal of the body. The active ingredient is hydrolysed lecithen and at 20% for the salon solution it is around 3 x more active than some other inch loss wraps. The solution will continue working for 72 hours but bear in mind 20% will only burn a limited amount. Once the fat is gone, it's gone! It will only come back if you make new fat which would happen if you then over indulged or returned to eating habits that caused the fat in the first place. Prolonged use, healthy eating and exercise is necessary to achieve maximum reduction of fat. It removes fat but does not tighten loose muscle'

This is PERFECT for a quick inch loss before that fabulous night out you have planned or even for slipping into your bikini! 

Vicki told me about a new tan that she has started working her magic on, called The Revolutionary Contour D'or Shrinking tan. Tan, contouring and shrinking in the same treatment? I am soooo there! I was intrigued that I just had to know more! 

'The tan is a fusion of the active ingredients in Shrinking Violet Inch Loss Wrap and the organic Beach Bum Tan, which offers no smell, great fade and a natural colour. Contour D’Or (CD) is a two phase system whereby the clients body is sculpted by first applying the darker “Noir” followed by “Ombre” to give definition and contour to the body and face. The active ingredients from Shrinking Violet will continue to work over the 72 hours'.

So basically girls, if you want inch loss, tan and major body contouring (that fabulous Kimmy K look) this is the one for you! 

Allure Academy & Spa has all your needs for a perfect day of relaxation, beauty and pampering. If you are heading out for this years Races, on a night out with the girls, or going on holiday, be sure to book yourself into Allure!
