The Chelsea Day Spa, King’s Road

The last few weeks have been absolutely manic – I’ve been rushed off of my feet at work, and then I’ve also got several projects on the go at once, so when Lili from Beauty and the Snob asked if I’d like to pop down for a mini pampering session at The Chelsea Day Spa, I jumped at the chance!

The spa is located up some teeny stairs – it’s a very small little salon, but I was excited about big hair and some killer nails.

Chelsea Day SpaChelsea Day SpaI’m always slightly wary of trying new salons and blowdries – my hair is so thick that it rarely holds a curl for very long (and on more than one occasion, the stylist has complained of arm ache).

Being London, of course I stumbled across a familiar face – Michaela, who had done my hair previously at Blo in Covent Garden! I knew my locks were in safe hands, as Michaela is a very talented lady.

Chelsea Day Spa - Blow Dry I think she did an absolutely incredible job – and my blowdry lasted three days, which for me is unheard of – mine usually last a day at most!

I was also booked in for a manicure, and opted for the Jessica in Ocean Bloom. I loved the colour, but was also really impressed with the manicure – I’m a terrible one for chipped nails (I usually use a gel polish) but these were really long-lasting, and I was chip-free for ten days.

The whole experience was really quick, and if you’re in the neighbourhood for a good quality, fast blowdry and manicure I’d definitely recommend it. If you’re looking for a leisurely or relaxing experience, I wouldn’t be able to recommend it as I didn’t try it, but for a reliable, efficient and longlasting blowdry I’d definitely recommend!
