Last week I was invited to officially open Saffron beauty salon at the Mount Errigal Hotel in Letterkenny! Anjali, the proprietor is renowned for owning several stunning salons around Ireland and this latest venture in the hotel is set to be a prosperous one for her and her team.
When I arrived I was shown into one of the large function rooms in the hotel where the beautifully decorated room had been set up for over 100 guest to have a glass of champagne, some nibbles and some beauty demonstrations by some of the top ladies in the industry.
Lee Gooch, presenter from Highland radio was the host for the night and he was hilariously roped into trying out some of the beauty treatments from the Dermalogica Skin Scan to "Sugaring", a natural alternative to waxing - poor Lee was even forced to eat the sugar formula before having to endure the process of getting his nose hair "sugared"by Pamela from Alexandria Sugaring.
Myself and fellow guest for the evening Jennifer Wrynne were briefly interviewed on stage before we all made our way down to the new salon space where Jennifer and I cut the ribbon and officially opened the salon.
The salon itself is fabulous, beautifully decorated in a colour scheme of black, white and silver and by the sounds of the treatment lists, anyone who visits is in for an absolute treat. They offer a vast range of treatments from the usual facials and waxing to more unusual ones like the sugaring that I had mentioned previously. This is one that I definitely cannot wait to try out for myself as it is supposed to be much more gentle on skin than waxing and can be done with much less time between treatments so you can kiss goodbye to weeks and weeks of wearing trousers waiting for a leg wax. I really cannot wait to head up and experience this stunning salon for myself.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Carolynne & the team at the Mount Errigal for inviting me to open the salon and to Anjali for the wonderful experience & goody bag.
I wish her every success in her new venture and I am so looking forward to my next visit.
