Beauty

man-icures, and many other services!

As some of you may or may not know, we don’t only offer services for ladies, but also for gentlemen! With the recent increase of men wanting to look good, feel good and look after their appearance, we wanted to be part of this huge trend. So, if you want to come in with your other half, brother or male friend, why not do so?! Now the both of you can get pampered at our London blow dry bar!

 

1 – Man-i-Mondays. Or any other day of the week! With the constant 9-5 grind, our hands can get super dry (yes, this is aimed at you men too!), nails can get long, and hands can generally look untidy. So why not get a quick tidy up at our nail bar whilst your other half gets a blow dry?!

 

2 – Threading. We all know the importance of ‘eyebrows on fleek’, and this goes for men too in some cases! Whether you want them completely reshaped or just a tidy up, we’ve got you covered at our Chelsea blow dry and beauty bar!

 

3 – Massages. We recently introduced massage services at aer. From eye soothing, neck and shoulder massages to Indian head massages, we’ve got you covered if you’re looking for a quick pick-me-up during your lunch break or post work!

 

So, what better way to end February than to treat yourself to these services at our London blow dry bar, whilst your other half treats herself to a blow dry? If you’re both in need of a little pampering, or simply need a quick 20 minute pick-me-up, then these are perfect for you!

Amazing! This treatment is with no oil, lasting 20 minutes for just £25.

aer’s Lash Bar: Our Eyelash Services And What We Offer

Eyelash extensions have been around for a while, but recently they’re getting more and more popular. With so many different options available from LVL lash lifts to cluster clashes, you can find the perfect style for you. Individual lash extensions are currently our favourites because they look incredible and when properly applied, cause no damage to your natural lashes creating an effortlessly glamorous look.

Here’s a breakdown of our lash services and what we offer at our blow dry bar in London so you can decide which one is the best fit for you!

LASH EXTENSIONS

SEMI PERMANENT LASH EXTENSIONS

Semi permanent eyelash extensions are a revolutionary eyelash treatment which transforms your lashes into longer, thicker, curlier natural looking lashes. The lash extensions are applied with a strong lash glue to the lash only, and  The bond is designed to last until the natural lash has finished its cycle and both the natural lash and extension will fall out together.

Avoid using oil based products, rubbing on your eyes regularly or tugging on the lashes harshly – this may cause extensions to fall out faster. Infills are needed to maintain a full look, and lash extensions typically last 6-8 weeks. Everyone’s natural lash cycle is different so how often you get infills will depend on your individual cycle.

CLUSTER LASHES

Slightly different to lash extensions, cluster lashes are clumps of lashes bound together in a “v” shape. Clusters come in various densities as well as lengths. Additionally, since cluster lashes apply several eyelash extensions at one time, application time is shorter than individual extensions. These are a good option if you’re looking for something temporary and don’t want lashes that last too long, as these typically last 10-14 days. The main difference between cluster and individual lashes is that lash extensions are curled like natural lashes, whereas cluster lashes are made up of a few strands fanning out – this makes them more difficult to blend in with your natural lash line. They’re better for a dramatic look!

CURLS AND TINTS

LASH CURL

A lash curl is a long-lasting treatment that enhances your natural lashes by lifting them from the root and giving them a natural curl. A silicone pad is used to lifts each lash individually which adds an appearance of volume to your eyelashes. If you’re thinking about this treatment, it’s great if you already have relatively straight lashes and don’t often need to use lash curlers! If you combine this treatment with a lash tint, you don’t even need to worry about mascara! It lasts 6-8 weeks so it’s great if you’re looking for something long term that you don’t have to top up or worry about.

LASH LIFT

A lash lift is a lifting technique designed to give you longer-looking lashes. Previously, perming rods were used but now with new technology and materials, silicone pads lift the lashes from the root only. Unlike a traditional lash perm, this creates a subtle, natural looking lift, giving the illusion of length and making the eyes appear more open. Similarly to the lash curl, the results are immediate and last 6-8 weeks. It creates a mascara-type effect so you don’t have to top up or worry about your lashes for two months!

There’s no better than leaving a salon and feeling confident and really happy with your new style. Eyelashes really make a difference to your beauty routine – think about how much time you would save every morning if your lashes were ready to go as soon as you woke up!

We really want to give you to pick the perfect eyelash style for you. At our blow dry bar in London we offer a range of different lash treatments and we’d be more than happy for you to come in for any other service or offer you advice if you’re not sure what the next step should be! We’d be happy to help you find the treatment or style that is right for you at our London blow dry bar. Please email info@aerblowdrybar.com for more info.

New Year Hair & Beauty Resolutions

Happy New Year to all our clients and readers!

For our first post of the year we’ve decided to share ten of our New Year Hair & Beauty Resolutions that will inspire you in 2017 to help look and feel your best.

1. Ditch the mascara

With the introduction of our new lash bar at our Kensington store we have several options to enhance your lashes so you can say bye to clumpy mascara or smudged eyes at the end of the day. Read more about our eyelash service at our London blow dry bar here.


2. Save time

The hours saved on washing and styling your hair by simply booking a blow dry are many! Sit back and let us do the work for you with a wash and blowdry London style, leaving you with beautiful hair ready to go for that early morning meeting or after-work drinks.  A good blow dry lasts up to four days allowing you to make the most of your hair style. Book in for one of our blow dry options here or why not try our upstyles for hair service.

3. Give your brows the attention they deserve

Brows are extremely important for framing the face and and can often be easily overlooked.  In addition to blowdries we offer eyebrow threading in London and eyebrow shaping and tinting.  Read more about these services here.

4. Stop biting your nails 

A popular New Year’s resolution, let our manicure services help you achieve this one! If you opt for a gel manicure your nails will be protected with durable polish making them difficult to bite! Your nails will also have a chance to grow due to this longer lasting manicure.  Book here.

5. Look after your locks

As well as blowdries you can purchase one of our add-ons such as a blissful scalp massage or luxury hair treatment such as the Kerastase Fusio-Dose.  We also have a wide selection of luxury products at our blow dry bar in London to care for your hair from Kerastase to Oribe that can be purchased in-store.

6. Invest in your hair

77% of women say they have a better day when their hair feels great, whilst 71% of us admit we lack confidence on bad hair days (Stylist magazine, July ’16).  By purchasing our 6 or 12 blowdry packs you are saving money as well as investing in your hair styling, providing your hair with the right care and styling throughout the year! More info on our aer packs here or give us a call on 020 7244 9499 to book.

7. Eat more fruit & veg

Yes we agree this is a rather predictable one but it’s so important for healthy hair and skin! Apples are great for fighting hair loss and adding volume to thin hair.  Try eating figs to strengthen your hair and minimise breakages.

8. Switch up your catch ups with friends 

Instead of your usual cafe, why not switch it up this year?! At our blow dry bar in London check out our calming catch up space and grab a coffee with friends whilst being pampered!

9. Enhance your hair colour 

We have recently introduced the revolutionary hair colour service Olaplex to our Kensington blow dry bar.  Give your hair a boost for the new year and book in for this popular treatment here.

10. Try something new

Our expert team are always on hand to advise you of the best possible styling for your hair. With their advice step outside your comfort zone and try a different blow dry style to your usual choice or one of our upstyles for hair.  Or why not branch out from your standard manicure colour or beauty service. You may surprise yourself!

We look forward to seeing you at our London blow dry bar soon!

Eyebrow tinting

As you may know, in addition to blowdries we offer a range of beauty treatments at our London blow dry bar.  This week we wanted to share the benefits of one of our popular services, eyebrow tinting.   Bored of penciling in your brows, want more definition to your face?  Eyebrow tinting at our blow dry bar Kensington store is just what you need!

img_2528

Treatment area at our London blow dry bar

What are the benefits of eyebrow tinting? 

If you are fair or have fine brows then an eyebrow tint can help to enhance your brows, add thickness and frame your face better.

If you’ve over plucked your brows in the past and they are now uneven or in need of some thickness, a tint can help create a fuller illusion.

4b56675bfb91df7e485689ac5180f7e2

If you’ve noticed discolouration to your brows (as we get older our brow hairs can change colour) a tint would be perfect to conceal these.

Always on the go? If you haven’t got much time to pencil in your brows every day and want a quick solution, tinting is the answer!  Save time in the mornings and avoid the risk of smudging your penciled-in brows throughout the day by getting a professional eyebrow tint.

Lastly, if you just want more definition, colour and structure to your brows tinting is the way to go!  Even if you have dark brows, an eyebrow tint can pick up on hairs you didn’t realise you even had! Enhance your facial features and add volume to your brows.

How does the treatment work? 

This treatment is quick and painless.  Using a semi-permanent vegetable-dye the tint lasts for 3-4 weeks.

They say that eyes are windows to the soul, so why not dress them up and flutter those lashes!  To help you do just that we are thrilled to introduce our lash bar!

You may have a few questions about these treatments so read on for more info.

What are semi-permanaent lash extensions? 

An individual eyelash is applied directly to the top of the natural eyelash with a special adhesive by a technician.  The client will be lying down with protective patches around the eyes. If you are fair you can take advantage of our eyelash tinting London services prior to the application of lash extensions.  The eyelash extensions usually last between 6-8 weeks.

Eyelash Extensions Winnipeg MB

At our blow dry bar Kensington salon we offer both full set and half set options, with a refill after 2-3 weeks. A full set of lashes takes 1 hour 15 minutes and a half set about 45 minutes.

Natural eyelashes grow from the root so will not be affected by the application of semi-premanent lashes because they are applied on top of the lash. They can be worn regularly if the correct maintenance and aftercare is followed.

How about cluster lashes?

At our blow dry bar in London we also offer cluster lashes which are bound together in a “v” shape applying several eyelash extensions at a time with a shorter application process than the individual lashes.  These cluster lashes last around 10-14 days and the treatment takes 15 minutes for a half set and 30 minutes for a full set.

What is a lash curl/lash lift? 

These treatments are designed to give straight eyelashes an attractive upwards curl or lift without the need for eyelash curlers; lasting around 6-8 weeks the procedure takes an hour to complete.

eyelash-extensions

At our London blow dry bar we also have lash removal services, for prices click here.  You should always have your eyelash extensions professionally removed.

Any one of these treatments at our London lash bar are fantastic for events, parties and weddings.  If you are an active person who is an avid gym goer or a busy mother who does not always have time for makeup these treatments could be just what you’re looking for.
