Get NKD in Nottingham

On Friday I was invited along to Nottinghams go-to salon for all your waxing needs to test out one of their treatments. I went for a full leg and Brazilian wax, which, lets just say, wasn't the most comfortable experience ever, but you know what they say, no pain no gain! NKD are the waxing specialists, devoting their entire salon to hair removal, therefore each one of their staff is highly trained in specialising in removing your unwanted hair! On top of all that, they promise to make your wax as pain-free as possible, sounds good to me! They are Nottinghams first and only waxing and hair removal boutique and from back waxes to Hollywood's, they do it all!

On arriving at the salon, you instantly feel like you are in a luxurious, boutique'y salon and the lovely staff make you feel comfortable and relaxed. My treatment was done by the wonderful Jenny who was a true professional and made me feel at ease straight away. She began with the Brazilian wax, which, I'm not gonna lie was pretty intimate and uncomfortable, but definitely not as bad as I was expecting, and the pain was pretty much gone straight away after the initial shock! NKD believe in using a superior hot wax for intimate areas which sticks to the hair and not to the skin , resulting in less pain and fewer ingrown hairs. I was relieved once it was over and moved on to my legs which felt like a walk in the park after the Brazilian. The wax was so thorough  Jenny even went round the whole area afterwards with a pair of tweezers to get any stray hairs that were missed, before smoothing a soothing lotion all over, which felt amazing afterwards! Surprisingly the treatment took nearly an hour to do everything, and I came out feeling so soft and smooth.
The salon is tucked away up Bridlesmith Gate
If you really wanted to go all out you can even get yourself an infamous vajazzle!
Lovely post-wax treatments the salon stocks
NKD also have their very own lash and brow bar as part of the salon. I was very tempted to go for the HD brows experience which looks absolutely amazing! If you know me or are a long time follower of my blog, you will know that I have a bit of an obsession with eyebrows. I just love the way they can completely change your face and is normally the first thing I notice about someone. The before and after shots of the HD brows are mind-blowing, as the 7 step treatment, including tinting, waxing and threading, completely revolutionises your eyebrows! However, as I absolutely love plucking and shaping my own eyebrows, I feel like it would be taking away my fun by letting someone else do it!

All in all, I would 100% recommend a visit to nkd if you are thinking of any type of waxing and hair removal or need a new set of brows or lashes. You will be in the safest of hands and will feel like an absolute goddess afterwards, being treated by Nottinghams best in the business! Also, above all that, there are loads of discounts and offers available so you can get a great professional treatment at a bargain price.
