The Beauty Suite – Review

Red hair | modaFixShe’s as friendly as she is beautiful, the most fabulous beauty therapist you could meet. She is professional, caring, meticulous and warm. Meet Margaret Rodgers of The Beauty Suite.

Her suite is located at Hot Head hair salon in the pretty, picturesque town of Riverstown, Co. Sligo. It is a brand new beauty salon, beaming with charm.

Visiting this salon is the perfect escape from the stresses of work and life. I really feel rejuvenated when I visit The Beauty Suite. What I especially love is the lack of phone coverage, meaning no one can contact me for a couple of hours. What a sacred space and refreshing rarity in this day and age!


1. HD Brows

Oh yes! I’ve decided that this will be my regular treat. I’d never actually had any treatment to my eyebrows before so this combination of tinting, waxing, tweezing and threading was a real treat. Threading fascinates me! Mags uses a specially designed formula to give you perfectly defined brows to suit your face shape.

I have a scar on my left brow, where there is no hair growth and I was so thrilled with the results. I’m saving time in the mornings now not having to tend to my brows, and I’m actually more inclined to go make-up free to work!

Here’s a photo of my HD brows taken straight after treatment. Despite not having slept a lot the night before and this being an early morning visit, my new brows help me look fairly presentable and bright-eyed.

2. Spray Tan

At The Beauty Suite, Margaret uses Vita Liberata – a non-toxic and organic tan, suitable for all skin types. There are three shades to choose from and I can confirm it fades naturally. I had no issues with unsightly patchy areas.

I was very very pleased with the outcome and I would certainly recommend a spray tan at The Beauty Suite, due to Margaret’s care and precision.

3. Gelish nail treatment

This award-winning product performs like a gel and applies like a polish. It last 2-3 weeks. For me, there’s something so attractive and feminine about well kept nails. You just feel ‘done’, ready to take on any task, like only a woman can!

4. Specialised Bikini Waxing

This is something quite intimate, something some us like to tend to ourselves. Personally, I’m very much an ‘all or nothing’ kind of girl, in every aspect. If you’re doing something, do it right! Go for the HOLLYWOOD!!!

This was an experience!! Myself and Mags laughed a lot during this one!! At The Beauty Suite, Lycon wax is used. It’s made from natural ingredients and essential oils and it’s the most pain free wax on the market.

I’d be a liar if I said my own personal experience was pain free, but given the results I’ll be back for more. Margaret is a professional, a perfectionist and a pleasure to be around.

Some tips before a bikini wax

  • Plan! Bear in mind that around the time of your period, you can be hyper-sensitive and so extra susceptible to pain.
  • Stretch the skin to reduce intensity.
  • Take deep breaths!

Wishing Margaret every success in her new venture and a heartfelt thank you for my enjoyable, pampering experiences at her suite salon. An added bonus is you can get your hair done while you’re there. Where else does a wash and blo dry for €16?!
