Q61 Leeds Beauty Review

Finding a salon that I trust with my hair and beauty treatments has been a personal challenge for quite a few years. I've had many salon disasters from having my hair cut wonky to my eyebrows being waxed unevenly and it got the point where I decided to do everything at home and not invest my money on professional services as I didn't see the point - I would rather disappoint myself than have someone leave me disappointed. A few months ago I was desperate to get my eyebrows waxed before a big event and needed somewhere local to my work at quite last minute and I came across Q61.

Q61 is a Leeds city centre beauty salon situated on Boar Lane founded by husband and wife duo Michael and Helena Linsky. The idea to open a salon started with Helena getting her nails done prior to their honeymoon in Thailand in March 2015. After a struggling to book an appointment and then being disappointed with the service, Helena came home and said to Michael: "One day we should open a beauty studio." The duo spent a proportion of their honeymoon brainstorming the idea of owning a salon and then 8 months later in 2015, Q61 opened its doors to the public. The salon is based on the original idea of creating the best possible customer experience in a convenient location and you cannot get more convenient than one of the main, busiest streets in Leeds.

For the last few months, Q61 has become my go-to salon. They are the only salon that do my beauty treatments exactly how I want them doing and I always feel like a valued customer from the moment of booking my appointment to the moment my treatment has ended. I have never felt rushed out of the salon and I leave feeling relaxed and that I have spent my money well.

Last week, Q61 ran a blogger event and I had the privilege of being invited. It was great as a blogger to write about one of my favourite salons, but also as a customer it was great to see what other treatments they have to offer. During my visit I opted to have a OPI manicure and classic lash extensions. I used to have lash extensions quite frequently at a different salon I used to visit, but the therapist I liked left the industry so I was intrigued to try somewhere new. The treatment at Q61 took only 30 minutes and I was really impressed with the results. I asked for natural voluminous lashes and that was exactly what I got. These lashes last up to two weeks and I know once they fall out I will be getting them done again - it is great to wake up in the morning and not have to apply mascara. My second treatment was the OPI gel manicure which yet again I couldn't fault. I always pick red nails so I asked the therapist to choose a nude colour that would suit me and I absolutely love these nails. It is a colour I wouldn't have usually gone for, but they make my nails look so healthy. 

If you live in Leeds or visit Leeds regularly, I would definitely recommend popping by Q61. As previously mentioned it does take a lot for me to trust a salon and I would happily trust this salon with all my treatments. The staff are professional, the salon is trendy and overall,  it's a great convenient whether you're in a hurry or would like somewhere in the city centre to escape the hustle and bustle.

Have you been to Q61 before?
