Sometimes there is nothing better than spending a Saturday afternoon in a hair salon, basking in the relaxation, pampering and complimentary coffee. I love a good head massage as much as the next person. Last year I even found my new favourite hair salon in Edinburgh, Dean Jones Hair. However, there are also times when you just want to stay at home in your pjs, drink bucketfuls of tea and eat cheese on toast. Sounds pretty wonderful, doesn’t it?

 

May I introduce to you all my boyfriend’s super talented sister, Chelsea Greens (aka. BeautiVine). She’s a freelance specialist in hair, beauty and makeup based in Edinburgh, Lothian and Borders. Obviously I’m biased as she’s basically family, but she genuinely is very good at what she does. Last Sunday Chelsea came over to my flat and spent the afternoon pampering me. I was bored of my hair again so she gave me a subtle ombré colour and a voluminous blow dry.

I was also treated to a makeup makeover. Chelsea searched through her enormous treasure trove of makeup goodies and chose some subtle products to give me a natural look with smokey eyes. Her makeup skills are perfect if you’re planning a big night out or have a wedding or other special occasion coming up. She just takes the stress out of everything as she can fit into your day while you’re getting other things ready. Next time you have a girls’ night in then why not make it special by treating yourselves to a pamper party. You’d receive the following:
  • Mini manicure
  • Mini pedicure
  • Hair up/style
  • Full makeup with lashes
  • Makeup eyes only with lashes
  • Free goody bag

The only problem I had with my makeover… I had all of this done on a Sunday and just stayed in that evening as I had work the next day. I know my boyfriend (Chelsea’s brother) appreciated the look when he got home though, so it was all worth it.
The full list of Chelsea’s services are on the BeautiVine website:
  • Hair
