Beauty & Spas
The lady at the salon is really very nice and no doubt after a first visit you will be back again without any apprehension of being "cut up" or having to go through torture. On the contrary, you will be cosseted and taken care of so that you finally come away .all bright and sparkling. Regular customers are really appreciated here and often receive some lovely gifts. Facial care from 230F (EUR 35); 10-10 minute ultra-violet sessions 250F (EUR 38); removal of unwanted leg hair (half leg) 80F (EUR 12.2).
The formula used in this salon is increasingly rare: you don't make an appointment here, you just come whenever you want and you wait your turn. So of course, depending on the day and time, you might have to wait for over an hour, or maybe not at all! But anyone can understand why to avoid coming to have your hair cut on a Friday evening or a Saturday! Besides, special treatments are free and there's no supplement to pay if you have long hair. If you have a Diagonal card or an MGEL membership card you can benefit from some very good reductions. With the card, a shampoo-cut-blow-wave costs 120F (EUR 18.30) for ladies and 80F (EUR 12.10) for men.
The salon is open for men and women and everyone comes away delighted because the lady in charge of the premises is a real witch, or rather. a fairy with a golden touch! First of all you have to brace yourself for the shock you will have when you look in the mirror once you get back home.The results are surprising: in just a few short sessions you will be made to "look like new" without having to either ruin yourself or swallow some magic potion! Facial care from 190F (EUR 29).
