We’ve got it nailed!!


So after the last blog we now know how to get the perfect complexion, this week its super shiny party nails!

We all want fab looking nails this time of the year, but there are so many options! Which one appeals to you?

Jessica Manicure

Cuticles and nails are treated first to prepare the nails for that perfect looking finish.  After determining your nail type a treatment base coat is applied to the nails followed by 2 coats of your chosen colour (so many to choose from, good luck!) completed by a coat of Brilliance high gloss top coat. The treatment takes 45 minutes, nails will be touch dry in about 20 minutes but be prepared to be super careful for at least 2 hours to avoid damaging that finish. Can easily be removed with nail polish remover.

 Phenom Manicure

As above the cuticles and nails are treated first to prepare the nails, then you simply chose your basecoat from the Jessica range, your Phenom colour and then top it off with the Finale Shine. It is fast-drying and provides a gel-like shine without the need for a UV or LED lamp. Also taking 45 minutes nails will be touch dry in 10 minutes and totally dry after half an hour, you can even put shoes on without smudging! Can easily be removed with nail polish remover.

GELeration Manicure

This was created in 2010 with the nurture of your natural nail in mind, it has the beauty of Jessica we love but with the strength of a gel. As always we prepare the nail so you get that flawless finish, we gently buff the nail, causing no damage it just removes any oil from your nail so the gel sticks! Each stage (base, colour and top) is cured under a LED lamp so as soon as the painting is finished you are dry! These soak off easily in 10-15 minutes with GELeration Erase solution.





The length of time these will last on your nails is determined by many factors, nail condition, lifestyle and homecare to name a few, your therapist will discuss these with you during your treatment.

Whichever you choose you’ll be guaranteed fabulous looking nails for the party season!

So today I was told it’s only 5 weeks until Christmas! I know, 5 whole weeks! That’s plenty of time to get presents bought, Turkey ordered, food bought, decorations and tree sorted, right?!  (Apparently not right!)

For those that know me it’s not unusual to see me start my Christmas shopping wth 1 week till the big day BUT apparently some people have already started Christmas Shopping, some have even finished!!!! So with that in mind I thought I would help with a few GLOW gift idea’s.

A wonderful find for our gift shop

korres shower gel

During a holiday in Crete this summer Sara found this range of products and fell in love with them, once you have experienced them I’m sure you will too!

So….KORRES…. what’s so special?!

Korres is a Greek brand where the products are developed using natural and certified organic ingredients. The reason –  the founder George Korres’ was inspired by his grandfather’s homeopathic knowledge. Learning all he could from his Grandfather he then went to University to study Pharmacology to understand the science behind it all.

In 1989, while studying, George Korres joined Athens’ oldest homeopathic pharmacy. Working side by side with his colleagues, he explored the healing power of traditional herbal remedies and plants.

Driven by his passion for natural ingredients, the deep understanding of herbs and the pharmacy heritage of over 3,000 remedies, in 1996, KORRES was born!

Extend, Express, Enhance, the answer to perfect lashes

nouveau logo

Guess who’s been  “GLOW on the go” again?!

This week it’s all about lashes. For about a year GLOW has been researching everything lashes to try and find a system we fell in love with, well………. I did it!

After the amazing results we saw from Nouveau’s LVL Enhance treatment we couldn’t resist looking into the other types of lashes that Nouveau offer. Well let me tell you, I was amazed, Nouveau lashes are fantastic, whatever you want to achieve with your eyelashes we can do it!

It was so nice to train with a company that had client care and safety right at the heart of their treatment. I was asked to revise the Anatomy of the eye before I attended the course, this took me back to my wonderful college days, and we even went through the hair growth cycle!

eye anatomy hair growth





Nouveau’s expertise in lashes is second to none, they have such an understanding of lashes it was a privilege to be part of the training. From the choosing of the silk material the lashes are made from so they are kind to your lashes, selecting the weight so they don’t weigh your lashes down, to the professional removal process at the end. Our lashes are always in safe hands! It’s the standard we have come to love from NOUVEAU.

On the course I was taught 3 different techniques that fall under the Express category, and these are now available at all GLOW salons.




Strip lashes: these are brilliant for a night out. Perfect for Christmas parties! £6.50 to buy or £16.50 to be applied in salon



Glamorous Lash fillers: this is 3/6 individual lashes stuck in a cluster together at the base, this gives a fuller look that can last up to a week! £25 but it is imperative to your lash health you get them removed professionally.


Cons_TGuide_Express_LashExtensionsNatural lash extensions: this is a single lash applied to each of your natural lashes giving a natural look that can last for up to 2 weeks!! From £30 but again it is imperative to your lash health you get them removed professionally.


Come on ladies get lashing!!!!!!!!!

Love Laura xx

For the observant readers you’ll notice we haven’t covered the Extend part of the Nouveau family…..all I will say is watch this space 😉

Helping a fighter keep on fighting

 rachel and daughter

Let me introduce you to Rachel Harry and her daughter Freya.

This week I want to talk to you about this remarkable lady, Rachel. Rachel along with her mother Karen and sister Emma were regular clients at Glow and we came to know them very well.

I’m going to give you a brief insight into Rachel’s story and what we want to do to help.

We had seen Rachel throughout her pregnancy and were eagerly awaiting news of the little arrival, but instead the news we had was that during the birth Rachel suffered a massive heart attack caused by an undiagnosed blood clot.

For 20 minutes the crash team fought to bring back Rachel, thankfully Rachel’s heart started beating again. However, being without oxygen and blood for 20 minutes Rachel suffered a hypoxic brain injury, she was given 2 hours to live.

rachel hospital

Specialists explained that no-one has survived such a massive trauma. Rachel survived an operation to rectify complications during her caesarean but remained in a medical induced coma for 10 days. Her family were told that if Rachel did wake up she would be left with serious brain trauma and would need care 24/7.


Amazingly, Rachel kept fighting, she is now able to sit and eat unaided at the table, stand and walk around the house with support, she understands everything that goes on around her, reads and sings with Freya responding verbally and with physical gestures during conversations.

rachel and mum

Rachel needs to have essential physiotherapy three times a week to help her achieve her full potential, which is not funded by the NHS. The Rachel Harry fund was set up in December 2012 by Rachel’s father and his friends to raise very much needed funds. Rachel’s recovery has astounded medical professionals.

 Niki and Heather are volunteering their time and are holding a nail painting day on 6th November 2015, 10am to 4pm at Glow Wrexham.

Please call the salon to book your 30 minute appointment, you can donate any amount you wish to this much needed fund.

Thank you

Niki, Heather and Glow xx

What’s new in the world of HD Brows?




This week I was fortunate enough to be picked to go to the HD Academy in Milton Keynes to attended a refresher course. Even though I am already trained in HD, and have been for 4 years, the course made me fall in love with the eyebrow treatment all over again! Plus I got to work in the amazing surroundings shown below!

hd training room

We shape thousands of eyebrows a year at GLOW and I mean 1000’s!! So, it’s only natural us GLOW girls want to know everything there is to know about eyebrows. Well what can I say about this course? Amazing comes to mind, if eyebrows are your thing then HD is your thing!

The 7 step process literally gives you the perfect eyebrow. Every HD Brows treatment is exclusive, as we assess the shape of your face and your colouring before creating a bespoke brow, tailored exclusively for you. The care taken to give each and every client their desired look is second to none, whether you want a night time glamorous look or a natural day time look, it’s not just a treatment but a lesson for you in how to give your brows that desired “finish”.

hd find your finish
Even if you have sparse area’s, where brows may have developed a “gap” from over plucking (we all do it do not worry!) we can draw on individual hairs or use make up to hide those areas until they grow back. We can also give the illusion of darker hair and make sure your tint lasts longer. It’s just mind blowing and I’m so happy that I get to offer my clients this treatment!

I was told celebrity fans include The Saturdays, Emeli Sandé, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon, to name but a few!

I just can’t wait to get back and show all the Glow girls what I’ve learnt…

It’s much more than just eyebrow shaping…

Lots of love Laura xx
