I decided to visit the So Fabulous salon based on the fantastic reviews on Qype - I'm so glad I did, and I'm writing my own five star review in the hope I'll persuade others to go there!
I was quite nervous about visiting the salon - I was a lifelong nailbiter with an upcoming wedding, with a woeful lack of knowledge about beauty treatments. From the first phonecall enquiring about options to my final bridal nails appointment, Garry and the team were absolutely fantastic - not only ridiculously knowledgeable about what they do (and very proud to offer the best in the business to their customers), but also a lot of fun to hang out with.
After a couple of appointments having Bio Sculpture on my nails to try and keep me from attacking them, I knew there was no point going anywhere else for my bridal treatments. I basically handed myself over to them for two days and said 'Do what you need to do!'. For my wedding I had a french BioSculpture manicure, a full pedicure with pastel pink BioSculpture, an *awful* lot of waxing, eyelash tinting and eyelash extensions - all done at SoFabulous. Even the fact that I rocked up the day before my wedding with a big split in one on my nails didn't faze Garry - he did a great repair job so you couldn't tell at all (see the photo - the nail with the split is my ring finger).
So even though it's unlikely I'll be visiting them quite so regularly now I'm married (in the week before the wedding I was practically living there), they've got a lifelong customer in me. Thanks so much guys for all your help and expertise - you are fantastic at what you do! x
