Skin Candy Sugaring Vs Waxing

With Skin Candy, you don’t need to grow the hair to the length of 5-7mm unlike with waxing techniques. Experienced therapists can remove even the shortest hair with Skin Candy’s Xylitol enhanced pastes.

Waxing products do stick to living skin cells, making the procedure painful and skin irritated. This doesn’t happen with Skin Candy, since the paste is water soluble – it slides off from living skin cells, scrubbing the dead cells from the skin surface and making the skin easier to treat after the treatment.

The products used for waxing legs and full bodies are made from petroleum based resins and chemicals making them prone to contamination or cross contamination. Scandinavian Skin Candy paste is all pure natural. It’s even edible and delicious. All of the pastes are 100% safe and extremely skin friendly.

All in all we can assure you, that once you go Skin Candy there is no way you’ll be going back to waxing. That is how different the products are.

Skin Candy Sugaring Vs Waxing

Natural ingredients do not irritate the skin or cause allergies

Since the paste is made from pure natural ingredients and it does not contain any preservatives or extra additional ingredients, it is safe to use even for customers with allergies, dry psoriasis and dry itchy eczema.

Our pastes have a very high concentration of sugar which prevents the bacteria from breeding in the paste. With added Xylitol the paste includes sugar alcohols, that make the paste also moisturising and antibacterial.

More comfortable treatment technique

With Skin Candy, you will have a more complete and pleasant epilation experience:

With our sweet method, the hair is removed in its growing direction, which will prevent the trauma caused by the epilation and will remove the hair deeper from the follicle. This way we avoid breaking the hair in the follicle and thus we can minimise a number of ingrown hairs.

Since the hair is removed to its natural direction of growth the treatment is much more gentle for you.

Effects on skin and hair growth

With Skin Candy, don’t need to grow the hair to the length of 5-7mm unlike with waxing techniques. Experienced therapists can remove even the shortest hair with our Xylitol enhanced pastes.

After a number of treatments the hair follicle begins to deplete. The hair gets frailer after every treatment and after a few treatments, the regularly treated areas will show permanent results in decreasing hair growth.

Please join us in congratulating our Beth

It’s been a little while since we updated you on the goings on within the salon, so I wanted to let you know that we have been celebrating Beth’s progress!

About KalypsosBeth is now a fully-fledged stylist available for appointments within our Stylist price range.

Beth joined us nearly two years ago straight out of school, and with determination and hard work she has passed her Level 2 NVQ.

She has been a very quick learner and we’re very proud of her progress!

If you’d like to book an appointment with Beth then call the salon on 01747 855400 or book yourself in online here.

See you soon!

Pop in and play make-up with us (for free)!

We posted last month about our new lipstick we’re launching in the salon called LipSense – a lipstick unlike any other!

As the original long-lasting lip colour, it is waterproof, does not kiss-off, smear-off, rub-off or budge-off! Once it’s on, it’s on! You won’t be worrying about whether it’s on your teeth, or caked in the corners of your mouth, so you can just concentrate on being you.

Next week on Friday 23rd June we’ve got the salon open for you to come in and play all day with LipSense and the different colours to see what it’s all about – we’d love to see you!

P.S – There are over 30 colours to choose from! Come in and play!

Are you protecting your hair colour as well as your skin this summer?

We are most definitely in summer now, hooray!

I bet you’ve got the sun lotion out to protect your skin from the sun’s rays, but are you protecting your hair too?

Here’s something you might not know:

UV rays can damage the colour of your hair as well as dehydrate it, which means split ends can be a real pain during the summer.

Are you protecting your hair colour as well as your skin this summer?We have a little bottle full of magic by Davines called SU Hair Milk which is a leave-in protective and softening treatment that provides all of the benefits of a cream and the lightness of a spray.

Thanks to anti UV-A and UV-B filters, it protects the hair hydration and colour during sun exposure. It has a light formula that conditions hair without weighing it down, leaving it soft and shiny, with a floral (camellia and mimosa), fruity (apple) and woody fragrance.

If you’ve got a holiday or trip to the beach planned, this is a must-have to pack so you can protect your colour for longer.

You can pick up these amazing bottles from our salon today.

Enjoy the sun and take care!

Sally & The Kalypsos Team

Will we see you on the 23rd June?

We have been a bit excited in the salon lately and it’s because we’ve got a brand new product we think you will LOVE.

Available now in our salon is LipSense – a lipstick unlike any other. As the original long-lasting lip colour, it lasts up to 18 hours, it is waterproof, does not kiss-off, smear-off, rub-off or budge-off! Once it’s on, it’s on!

You won’t be worrying about whether it’s on your teeth, or caked in the corners of your mouth, so you can just concentrate on being you.

Check it out:

On Fri 23rd June we’re hosting 1 day in the salon for you to come into the salon to play all day with the different colours and test for yourselves how long they last.

As Joanna Lumley once saidLipstick and mirrors and hairspray, I find them a great antidote”!

We can only agree!

A little note to say thank you!

Things are moving fast at Kalypsos and every month our newsletter seems fit to burst!

We understand that our newsletter can be a tad long, so make it easier for you to read what’s going on in the salon we have decided to break down our usual newsletter into weekly blogs. So, instead of reading one long blog from us every month, you’ll get four little ones instead, packed full of value!

We have our winning Supermum of 2017!This week, we would like to thank everyone who bought raffle tickets for our Super Mum’s prize draw! Last month we introduced you to our Super Mum of 2017 Kay, who was faced with the challenge of raising £10,000 to provide her poorly diabetic daughter Ruby-Mae with a new glucose monitor.

Well, since our last email, our Super Mum has managed to raise £22,000!! The fundraising football match that took place at Shaftesbury School last Sunday was a massive success!

We are thrilled for our Super Mum and want to thank you for your support and well-wishes. Ruby-Mae is excited to start her treatment journey to health.

Have a great weekend!

We have our winning Supermum of 2017!

We asked you to nominate your amazing mums for a chance to treat them to a years’ worth of haircare at Kalypsos. Well, you nominated and we chose (with great difficulty!) our winner!

Congratulations to Kay McBride – who is our new Supermum! She was nominated by one of her daughters who felt that this year she deserved some well-earned pampering on us, and after reading her nomination, we had to agree!

Our Supermum’s story:

We have our winning Supermum of 2017!Kay’s youngest daughter Ruby-Mae is 6 years old and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when she was 2, which has become more severe as she’s getting older. She was given an Insulin pump nearly three years ago, which has helped give her more freedom and now she only needs injections if her blood sugar is high – whereas before she was having between 7-10 injections a day on top of the blood testing!

Kay has to take Ruby-Mae to the hospital every 4-6 weeks to have adjustments made for the dose on her pump as well as phone consultations in between. Due to the erratic behaviour of her diabetes, Kay has to do (on average) 10 – 15 blood sugar tests a day. This means that Kay has to test Ruby-Mae’s blood sugar levels every hour, all whilst looking after her other two daughters and making sure they’re set for school! At present 4-6 nights a week on average Kay has to test through the night.

The past year has been especially hard for Kay and Ruby-Mae as Ruby has experienced heart attack like symptoms after prolonged low blood sugars, and recently lost her sight temporarily in her left eye due to the blood sugar irregularities. The subcutaneous fat has also collapsed on one side of her stomach making it difficult to find places to insert the cannula and tubing in her stomach.

Amongst all of this, Kay is raising money to get Ruby-Mae a new continuous glucose monitor which is basically a small chip/sensor that is inserted into the tummy which takes a blood sugar every 15-20 seconds, and this information can be fed back to Kay’s phone or iPad where she can watch a graph showing her the fluctuations, thus being able to prevent hypo (low blood sugars) and hyper (high blood sugars) attacks. If Ruby-Mae’s blood sugars dip below or above a certain level an alarm will sound. If you’d like to help our Supermum get Ruby-Mae the monitor she needs that will improve her life (and stop having blood tests done every day!) then please donate to Kay’s fundraising page here.

We have our winning Supermum of 2017!On Sunday 30th April Kay and her family are holding a fundraising football match which will be held at Shaftesbury FC. Ruby’s football team will be captained by AFCB legend Warren Cummings and will be played against Shaftesbury FC.. The kick-off will be at 1pm.

In the evening there will be a dinner where Sir Geoff Hurst will be hosting the auction and give an after dinner talk.

For more information on this event visit the Facebook page here.

Poor Ruby-Mae has been through a rough time and our Supermum Kay has been there for her whilst being a strong pillar for their family. Kay definitely deserves some pampering during this difficult year ahead!

Thank you all for your wonderful nominations, it definitely wasn’t easy to choose!

Money raised by BOOBS charity is making big changes!

We have our winning Supermum of 2017!

Last October we supported our local charity BOOBS at their event which raised over £4k! Well, we’re SO chuffed to let you know what your wonderful donations have done.

A whopping £2,000 was donated to Stars Appeal which enabled them to open a dedicated Breast Unit in Salisbury – their grand opening was on 1st April! This dedicated breast unit allows women and men to receive a faster diagnosis, quicker access to treatment, state-of-the-art equipment and a purpose-built, spacious waiting, diagnostic and treatment rooms dedicated entirely to breast patients. We’re absolutely thrilled! You can read all about the unit on their website here.

£1,000 has also been donated to Breast Inflammatory Research as well as £250 to Breast Cancer Awareness and Weldmar – each!

Is your hair crying out for a winter service?

We’d like to wish you all a Happy New Year – didn’t the holiday just fly by?! We hope you’re keeping well and away from all the nasty lurgies that are going around at the moment, winter is when we need to look after ourselves the most – our hair included!

The cold outside air and the central heating systems indoors strips your hair of all its moisture, leaving it dry and causing breakage.

To help you combat this, we’ve got a few tips and tricks for you!

Winter Hair Care Tips

Is your hair crying out for a winter service?

  1. Treat your hair once a week to deep conditioning treatments. Check out our Olaplex No.3 home use deep nourishing treatment.
  2. Leave on your hair for an hour or overnight depending on how dry and thirsty your hair is.
  3. Rinse out thoroughly. Hair feeling lank after treatment? Shampoo lightly to remove residue. Be careful not to over-wash!
  4. Use Davines MELU Shield Heat Protection spray before styling.

Is your hair crying out for a winter service?Aim for 2-3 times weekly washing to prevent drying out.

Avoid clarifying shampoo (such as Head & Shoulders) over winter as they strip hair and scalp of their natural oils which are needed more during winter.

Use Davines Nounou nourishing shampoo to replenish the oomph and luminosity of your hair.

Is your hair due a winter service?

Is your hair crying out for a winter service?

When winter arrives we always give our cars a winter service to make sure our beloved motors remain reliable during this frosty season. Your car isn’t the only thing that needs some TLC during winter, as we explained above; your hair is in desperate need of some attention too!

This is why we’ve created our Winter Service for Hair. For just £60 you can get a Cut & Blow Dry with a deep nourishing treatment in the salon PLUS one of our amazing Davines take-home kits.

These Davines boxes include shampoo, conditioner and a unique styling product, so you can maintain your winter care for your hair at home after your appointment, giving you luscious hair ready for Spring!

Is your hair crying out for a winter service?

The Minu (Blue Box) contains a replenishing illuminating mask, nourishing colour treated hair. The Nounou (Peach Box) also contains a nourishing mask with a special formula for bleached or permed hair. Lastly, our OI (Black Box) contains a nourishing milk all-in-one spray which is a leave-in treatment for your hair providing frizz control, shine, smoothness, heat protection and much more!

Our OI boxes have been incredibly popular so we’ve got very limited stock. If the OI box sounds perfect for you, book your Winter Service with us now before they all go!

We want to thank you all for your continued support of our local charity BOOBS. We held our annual event last Friday and absolutely smashed last years’ goal by raising OVER £4,000!! This year we had a marquee donated to us for the evening which allowed us to expand the event, and we had a blast!

sal-sugaring-grin2The Kalypsos team were there for the evening painting the town pink, we had a great time! We had pink nails, pink hair and even glitter hair going on.

We also had the opportunity to introduce our new sugaring hair removal to a few of you – Jenny did 18 sets of eyebrows in a row!

If you’d like to learn a little more about our sugaring hair removal then you can find out everything you need to know here.

Congratulations to Ellen on her baby girl!

Our Director Ellen welcomed her beautiful baby girl Millie Lottie to the world a couple of weeks ago. Mother and baby are doing really well, congratulations Ellen!
