beautysalon.jpgWe’re always talking about beauty salons – where to get waxed, who does a good facial, best tan, body treatments…

A few names pop up time and time again. Blue Moon in Malahide is one that we hear about a lot. Rate your best beauty salon, or a therapist you think is particularly good. Where do you go to get your essential maintenance or extreme pampering done?

    I used to work at Anne McDevitt’s in town years ago and all the girls there were excellent, especially for facials…I wonder if it’s still the same? I got everything done for free, but haven’t been in a salon since!
    Anyone recommend anywhere good for waxing?

    Primrose Beauty in Limerick…Anne is a brilliant waxer and really friendly!

    Lilly Pinks is also a great new salon and got a fab fake tan done there recently!! also great for nails and dermologica facials…Tara is one of the owners and really great therapist!

    Joanne in Bellisimo Limerick is great for nails too!

  • Townygirl says:

    I can highly recommend Donna’s Beauty Spot, in Athleague in Roscommon. She is brilliant and lovely. She even worked in New York for a while. Marvelous.

    I’m going to Therapie for laser next week. Anyone got any feed back on the place ? I am a bit stressed…

  • Bee says:

    I agree with La La – I can recommend Bellissimo in Limerick for their beauty. Caroline is great for waxing and nails.

    Buffy when I lived in Cork I used to go to The Beauty Corner at the end of Barrack Street.Found them to be good!

  • montagne says:

    Coco in Ballincollig is the best and cheapest salon i’ve been to. They’re on the main street. http://coco.ie/

    Karens on Oliver Plunkett St , above Budget, is great too.

  • Alison says:

  • Nellie says:

    I second Anne McDevitt’s in Wicklow Street – the girls are indeed vey nice and they give lots of freebie samples! I came out of there with a armloads last week!

  • ML says:

    ah…I miss the days of free beauty treatments…I can hardly muster the strength to bleach my facial hair these days…teehee
    But I take the tip on Brazilia thanks Alison!

  • Ms Sittingatherdeskandpretendingtowork says:

    I don’t like Anne McDevitts at all. The therapists don’t shut up!…. I understand telling me what they are doing, but that’s all I want to know. They are far too chatty. I never get time to tune out.

  • lemon verbena says:

    Therapie do the exact same treatments as everywhere else but charge twice the price

    Marie – I went to Therapie about 2 years ago for a massage & it was awful. Therapist wore latex gloves ..not sure why – which gave a horrible sensation on your body. Yeuck!

    Blue Moon in Malahide are excellent – lovely salon, lovely girls who have worked there for years (good sign). Also tried a new salon in Sutton called Pangea which was fab – as part of your facial you get a foot scrub, leg or arm massage & eyebrow trim plus once you’ve done 3 facials you get the 4th one free. Lovely salon & lovely staff.

    Disaster trip to Oceana (Crystal Clear salon) in Malahide the place was very cold & sterlie, didn’t like therapists & had more enjoyable trips to Dentist … you have been warned!

    When I lived in Dublin I always went to Eileen Mulligan at Executive Care on Trinity Street (above the hairdressers) for facials and I found her amazing. She uses the Dermalogica products and she really knows what she is doing, never goes for the hard sell and spends ages considering and talking with you about your skin, before using the stuff she thinks is best for it. I always hugely enjoyed my facials with her, they were relaxing but also tough as hell on my nose full of blackheads. I sent my sister to her – my sister has bad adult acne – and she loved her as well. Highly recommended. I went to a much-hyped dermalogica facialist here in Brooklyn lately and it just wasn’t half as good – found myself wishing I was still in Dublin!

  • marie says:

    Thanks for the tip girls :)
    So now back to the beginning : what is the best place in Dublin to get a Laser Hair removal ?
    thanks a lot for your help on this

  • Pixie says:

    I find Essentials in Baggot St great for a facial,friendly but not in your face. Have tried a good few and this one is the best so far, they use Dermalogica products. It is also very clean which a lot of place aren’t these days.
