Get the perfect Valentine’s Day makeover at Bowtique

Elli Garnett reviews Bowtique Hair, Beauty & Fashion in Crownhill.

I’m not a girly girl and, since moving to Milton Keynes 4 years go, I had struggled to find a hair and beauty salon that I looked forward to visiting.

But that all changed when I tried out the fun, friendly and fabulous Bowtique to get glammed up for a special night out.

I don’t get the chance to go out much since having my son 2 years ago, so I chose to give Bowtique a go because it offers all the treatments under one roof – hair, beauty, nails and fashion.

As soon as I walked in I was excited by the vibrant atmosphere, smiling faces, friendly staff and the classic tunes coming from the stereo!

I opted to have both a Shellac pedicure as well as chrome nails. This is a funky glitter powder that is put onto gels and looks fab.

I then decided to have my brows and eyelashes done for the first time ever! I had a tint and shape on my eyebrows and was amazed by the thickness of my natural brows, which I had never seen before because my hair colour is so fair.

I then had LVL (length, volume, lift) lashes done. My lashes were lifted around around a curling shield before the therapist tinted them.

It was a very strange sensation as I had to sit with my eyes closed for around 45 minutes, which was surprisingly relaxing.

I then had a wash and blowdry, and my hair was curled and styled. It felt so nice to have my hair styled for me and I really enjoyed having my makeup done too – it looked amazing!

I felt like a beauty queen and the whole experience proved the perfect start to my big night out.

So if you’re looking for a pamper before a night out or a makeover for Valentine’s Day then I highly recommend Bowtique.

I loved my hair so much that I went back for a cut and colour a few days later. I’ve finally found my MK salon!
