I've just returned home from a fabulous pamper filled afternoon at HEADQUARTERS in Tankerton, Whistable and what an afternoon I've had! I was instantly made to feel at home and comfortable by the friendly and warming team and after a delicious panini and coffee at the in-house cafe (I found this amazing- hair and hot food! I couldn't ask for more) and a lovely chat with Simon, the owner of the salon, and glamorous HQ Beauty Queen Nina I was ready for my beauty treats...
Nina a fully trained makeup artist and beauty therapist has recently opened The Beauty Rooms at HQ The Beauty Rooms are located at the back of the salon are SO pretty and tastefully decorated with shabby chic decor (my obsession right now). Nina gave me a snowy white Christmas manicure using OPI nail varnishes. The girls in the salon were so inspired by Nina's handy work that a few of them asked to have theirs done too! I feel a nail trend starting here! Click here for Nina's full list of beauty treatments.
With my nails in perfect form It was now time for my big bouncy blow dry by makeup artist and hair stylist Sofie. After an unwinding head massage and hair wash Sofie worked her hair magic on my locks and gave me a blow dry to die for! Perfect timing too being the start of the weekend, I walked out of the salon feeling perfectly pampered for the weekend ahead. Click here to find out more.
This little gem of a salon is a beautiful haven I strongly recommend to anyone either already living in the area or if you happen to be visiting. Whistable is such a trendy place to be right now you have to visit and now even more of a reason with HQ being located there! Whistable is a pretty quaint little town full of cute shops, tasteful tea rooms and an impressive beach so make it your mission to visit in 2014, you just won't be disappointed. Also if you do check out the salon make sure you look out for the amazing artwork, all artwork is by local artists - another aspect to the salon I love! Look at this painting its my favourite piece in the salon;
I think HQ might just be my new local beauty hang out spot! Check out the HQ site for further information- www.hqtankerton.com and be sure to book in for a snowy mani by Nina during this festive season!
