September Skin Bar

The 17th of September hosted our first skin bar event! We invited clients to come along and have a lesson in skincare. With all our girls newly trained in Decleor this was the perfect opportunity to transfer our long time fans of Darphin to the wonders of Decleor!!!

I think I speak on behalf of all the girls when I say that we lived and breathed Darphin for 18years collectively... and the thought of starting again with a new skin company was very daunting. We needn’t have worried.

Decleor blew us all away with its technology and ideas. They certainly are years ahead of any company we have worked with before. The training we received in the L’Oréal academy in Manchester was second to none, and even with 20 years experience under my belt I learnt so much about skincare and skin ageing that I and the girls just couldn’t wait to get back and transform our clients skin!!

The skin bar was a huge success, so much so we have planned another for the 19th of November. Appointments are limited so book ahead to avoid disappointment. A £20 deposit is needed which is redeemable against two or more products on the night, you also get a Decleor goody bag, and a full skin consultation with one of our girls! And of course a glass of bubbly or two.

Bye Bye...

Today is a really sad day for the Secret Spa team; it's a day we have to say goodbye to one of our longest standing therapists. 

Everyone who comes through the door will know our beautiful Abby, her warm welcomes and contagious smile have been our norm for 13 years... she is "The Secret Spa" and we are going to miss her so much.

Abby is taking her career in a different direction and is setting up a new baby sensory group Laughter Tots, covering the Cheshire area. We know that after three children nobody is more qualified than Abby to support new mum's and create a warm, welcoming environment.

We wish you all the best with your new venture Abby and we want you to know that the spa will always be your home, and if its just a quick visit, the door will always be open, kettle always on, and a big warm hug will be here for you. 

Lots of Love Always, Team SS xx


New beginings

Just like in life, business has many things that are never for certain. Life changes and clients move away, therapists have families, change careers, life happens. In my 18 years you learn to roll with the punches and as one door closes nearly always another opens soon after, but sometimes, things that are seemly set in stone can crumble away and leaving you wondering which way is up.

And this is what happened to us a few months ago when our product house of 18 years Darphin wrote to us saying they were pulling out of all salon and spa's in the UK by July 2018. I must have read and reread the letter about 20times, "How can they do this? What on earth am I going to do?". I slept on it (Well barely) before me and the girls rallied around and came with the conclusion "This is totally out of our control. We still very much love Darphin and the science behind it... but what if this is a blessing in disguise, what if we found something that would take The Secret Spa to the next level!".

So we spent the next few days arranging meetings with product houses to see what they had to offer. Team SS are always known for their hard work and pulling together when we need it most, and I have to say that the girls made this transition really easy. Each an every one of them read manuals did their own research and came to me with their findings. It would have been so easy to just choose the next in line but my girls know that the products they use are their tools and you always need the best tools possible. I am totally grateful for all their help and that this was a team decision.

The brands were dwindled down and there were two brands that stood out to us and everyone agreed this was what we needed. The science and pro-aging qualities of Darphin but not losing the sensorial experience our clients know and love.  So it was agreed.......drum roll..... We The Secret Spa has chosen Carita and Decleor as our new product houses. We are so thrilled to be working with such dynamic products and cannot wait to show you all the new range.

London Marathon

Congratulations Ali

This weekend was one of the biggest sporting events in the UK; The London marathon, and our Ali was there completing the race in an amazing time of 3hours 55mins 24seconds. Well done Ali we are so proud, Team SS xx

To ensure our marathon runner was race ready, she had a program of running, a special diet...and a very strict beauty routine to make sure she was ready for the cameras. Ali had the following treatments.



Yumi Lashes.

This treatment makes the most of your own lashes. By lifting the lashes from the root and fanning out towards the edges, and tinting them a dark black colour, Yumi lashes give the "false lash effect "... no need for mascara which is brilliant when you are running 26.2miles in the scorching heat. Lasting 6-8 weeks this treatment is brilliant for those of us who don't like lash extentions.


HD brows.

Everyone wants their brows on fleek especially when the cameras are on you. Defining and sculpting the perfect brow comes in a seven step procedure. Want to thicken your brows? no problem ask your HD stylist about a regrowth program. Want to get that sharp "I just woke up like this" look? No worries we have got that covered.


Jessica gel nails.

Ali when for our new spring colour POSH, which is a beautiful peach. Jessica gels last for 2 weeks and can be infilled or removed for a brand new look. 


Luxury Secret Spa Pedicure

Finishing a race in such a brilliant time is going to take its toll on your we made sure Ali was booked in for a lovely pedicure when she returns to work; a must for any marathon runners tootsies.


Ooh Delilah 


Here on the border of Wales, we are massive fans of Delilah.... but this time it is the makeup brand that has us singing from the rooftops!

The brand has huge a celebrity fan base including Holly Willoughby, Tess Daley, and Emma Willis to name a few: and stocking their products in the exclusive Fortnum and Mason, John Lewis........and now The Secret Spa.

We are so honored to have been approached by the award-winning company to be a salon stockist and have totally fallen in love with the brand. With every single product you can think of, this range is going to make you love it too.

We will be offering demonstrations on our 18th Birthday party open day, which is Monday the 11th of June 2018.
