COVID-19 – nkd ( ) Business Updates

Monday 23rd March 2020 (update) We are sad to announce that we’ve taken the decision to temporarily close both nkd salons and to remain closed for the foreseeable future. If you have a future appointment booked with us, please be assured that we will of course keep this appointment on your file and will honour it when we are allowed …

30th March 2020 – For God’s sake, put the razor away!

I hope you got through the weekend OK? Not wanting to sound flippant, but I have to say that I preferred this isolation business when the sun was shining and it was lovely and warm! Today I want to address a point which I know is on quite a lot of our clients’ minds and that is what you should do …

27th March 2020 – Negativity spreads like a disease.

  On Wednesday, I wrote about the power of a positive mindset and how vital it is that we all retain one if we’re to succeed in getting through this period emotionally unscathed. But for many this will be difficult to achieve in practice in the current circumstances. For me, it’s an easy drum to bang. I’ve had to draw …

25th March 2020 – Whether you think you can or can’t – you’re right.

  One of the things that really strikes me about this whole situation is that we’ve essentially been split into a nation of two halves. A huge part of the population is being forced to literally do nothing, with entire workforces – presumably running into hundreds of thousands of workers (or even millions?) – furloughed for the foreseeable future. Another …

23rd March 2020 – Adjusting to the new ‘ Daily Normal’

  So today will be the first day of real change for many of us. Perhaps the café, pub, restaurant or gym you work in has been forced to shut down for now, so you don’t have a job to get up for and go to today? Or, like me, maybe your kids are at home now that the schools …

Friday 20th March 2020 – nkd ( ) checking in and keeping you sane

  Of course we want to keep on reminding everyone that nkd is still very much open and trading, as we absolutely can’t afford for all our amazing clients who we’ve worked so hard to find and nurture over the years to forget about us during this spell of craziness. We realise that many of you may not be visiting …

Bring Back the Bush: Where did Our Pubic hair go?

Or as we at nkd ( ) prefer – why do YOU wax? (Warning – RANT ALERT from Rebecca!) Did you catch the documentary “Bring Back the Bush: Where did Our Pubic Hair Go?”, which was aired on the 27th January on Channel Four? As you might imagine, the title of the programme peaked my interest, so I eagerly tuned …

Hello Henna – a new era in brows

Henna Brows is one of the hottest trends in brows right now, and we’re loving it. To give you a very quick overview about the treatment: – Derived from the Hina [Henna] tree, Henna is a natural, entirely-plant based dye which has been used cosmetically for thousands of years in the Middle East, India, Pakistan and Africa. This makes it …

Waxing basics you need to read!

As summer approaches, we wanted to revisit some basics this week, which is how to get the best out of every waxing treatment you have with us. Even if you consider yourself a seasoned waxer, we recommend that you read these words of advice so that you can be sure of enjoying the feel of smooth, hair-free skin for as …

We bet you’ll be impressed with this…

We’re talking hair retardants, hair-growth inhibitors and anti-regrowth solutions this week, as these highly-effective yet rarely talked-about products are relevant to about 99% of nkd’s customer base! And even if you come to nkd as a lash & brow customer only, it would be unlikely that you don’t have at least one area of your body where you wouldn’t be …

Youthful Lashes and Brows

Ahead of Mothers’ Day this Sunday, we’re going to talk ageing Lashes and Brows this week. Because did you know that just like our skin and hair, eyelashes and eyebrows get thinner, sparser and more brittle as the years pass by, and the colour fades out of them? But unlike our skin, when it comes to ageing lashes and brows …

Our must have treatment for 2019…

…HD Brows. You should never underestimate the difference that a good set of brows can make to your face. Not least because well-conditioned, healthy-looking brows can take years off your appearance. It’s a little known fact that eyelashes and eyebrows deteriorate as we age, starting from our mid to late 20s. Just like our skin and hair, eyelashes and eyebrows …

How the nkd() team stay on “top of their game”…

We’re still on cloud since our (not-so?!) shock award win, when nkd ( ) Leicester was named Best Small Beauty Salon in the Midlands. But we managed to fit in afab all-staff training day in Leicester. The nkd team now consists of 16 between the two salons, and it’s very rare that we manage to find the opportunity to close …
