The day you’ve been looking forward to since September is finally here. You are with your family but creepy Uncle Steve is there and he thought it was a good idea to give Aunt Gladys a Smartphone for Christmas.
She can’t stop clicking and has no idea how to turn off the flash. Oh and no one loves Facebook more than Aunt Gladys. To save you from a January of de-tagging, we point you to the experts in Luxembourg where you can indulge in a bit of positive self care before the holidays fully kick off. A twelve hour plane journey is in the near future? Give yourself a fighting chance. Make an appointment and keep your hair, skin, nails, etc looking on point! Call a.s.a.p.
You saw yourself in the reflection and you thought Nicholas Cage in Con Air? Dry Luxembourg landlocked air makes your hair break like peanut brittle? Party season can be tough on you and your hair. A deep conditioning is the key to revival. Bubbles offers a BB Creme treatment is like putting your hair in an ambulance and sending it off to the hospital for help. Never heard of it? I hadn’t either- it is a multifunctional hair treatment which fills, smooths, moisturises and protects you against heat styling appliances and colour fading. It’s made with all the good oils: coconut, argon and olive so you can’t go wrong. You are left with radiant party season hair. Trust us on this one.

Perfect Beauty ByJil
Nothing says holiday angst and unconscious stunting of growth like biting your nails down to the nub. Your cousin voted for Trump and wants to explain why he thinks the travel ban is a reasonable idea? Fear not, let Jil at least make your nails LOOK less like you’ve been in the ring with your hillbilly cousin and are left with bloody stumps. Need to brighten your look? Get her to enhance your best assets and fix the brows you obsessively plucked to death for 15 years. That’s what she does, she fixes.
Yoaké – The Ultimate Spa
How about spending some money on something that might relieve stress before you get on a plane instead of buying some crap you’ll never wear. Think overall wellness plan! We know massages lower cortisol levels in the body while increasing levels of serotonin and dopamine. Get to Yoake to alleviate the stress you’ve suffered from running yourself ragged to get all the presents wrapped!
When it’s time to call in the big guns, call Serguie at Biolaser. No amount of sleep can make you look as refreshed as Botox or filler can. We think he might be sleeping at his desk because this beauty guru is burning the midnight oil in December. He will make time for you.
If all else fails, remember, when Aunt Gladys can’t seem to satisfy her appetite to pap everyone in sight, stand up straight, when looking at the camera *say ‘money’ instead of ‘cheese’ and for goodness sake, pass on the Syrah and go for a glass of bubbly. Red teeth never flatter…and these photos are forever.
*Not because we are in Luxembourg where the streets are paved with gold and not a piece of litter is to be found, the hard ‘e’ sound turns the corners of your mouth up.
