I was very unimpressed with this salon. I came here for the first time a couple of years ago because I needed a Brazilian wax and knew that they offered this service. Let alone the fact that the wax was more expensive than other Brazilian wax places (of course this type of wax is generally more costly than usual, but these prices were totally over the top), the final result after the treatment was apalling and not at all accurate. Unfortunately I had to book an appointment here again after two years of not returning for last week because the girl who's since become my usual wax beautician is on holiday for two months and I was in desperate need of an appointment. So I called some ten days in advance to book an appointment and sure enough I was given one and asked for my phone number "just in case". The day of the appointment I turn up at the place five minutes in advance to discover that the place is shut (!) for power failure, and no one ever told me anything about it, with the result that I had to leave work early for nothing, withdraw £100 from my bank account and go around with all that cash in my bag for nothing, as they only accept cash for payment for wax services(?!), it was 6 pm at that point and at that time I could not find anywhere else to book of course despite the important nature of my appointment and that meant that I wasn't in a presentable state to go to a doctor's appointment the following morning. If they had at least called me during the day to let me know, maybe I wouldn't have been able to book somewhere else, but at least I would have spared myself the trip all the way to King's Cross after a long day at work leaving stuff in the office unfinished.
Definitely not using them ever again and strongly recommend to stay well away!
Trying to kill some time waiting for my train. Saw the tanning shop, thought I'll get my nails done but ended up chatting to the receptionist and I used their Sun Angel. I was very pleased with the bed and happy with the end results. It perfectly suited my skin as I was told it would do. The staff appeared to be very knowledgable and informative and confident of their beds and products. I would highly recommend and well worth a visit. It's alittle out of my way but I have made it my regular sunbed stop to give me a lift.
Before I was due to go on holiday I needed a base tan and tried The Tanning Shop at Kings Cross. I was a bit weary as I am not a regular user of sunbeds. When talking to the receptionist she advised me on the best way to promote a base before going away. The results were great and the good news was I did not burn. she told me exactly how many minutes to start off with and now I go on there fantastic Sun Angel which I have researched and has many beneficial health factors aswell as giving me a fantastic tan with no burning!!!. I have used previous sunbeds and burned but the advise they gave me was very valuable and I have been using them ever since. I now purchase courses from them as the price gets alot cheaper and I have a whole year to use my minutes up. They also have a nail bar where I have a fortnightly treatment and my waxing as they only use hot wax which is much less painfull. I would highly reccomment the tanning shop at kings cross. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and the staff outstanding on there advise and friendlyness
