MOST people were excited with shops, pubs and salons reopening – wondering if they would get a trip in this week.
But one woman who went all out was Jill Barrett, from Wolverhampton, who spent Monday and Tuesday in the salon chair, spending nearly £3,000 on treatments, plus extra on products.
Jill, who lives with husband Terry, 50, and son Connor, 17, visited Zaks Hairdressing in Wolverhampton and Heaven Health & Beauty in Shifnal, Shrops.
The marketing firm owner, who runs her company with Terry, says: "I was so excited to be booked into the salon for the full works after a horrible few months away, it felt like all my Christmases and birthdays rolled into one.
I’d had enough of attempting to give myself treatments but, just as importantly, going to the salon is how I relax and unwind too.
I have a thorough regime that requires regular trips to the salon every week pre-lockdown, from waxing to nails, massages to neck treatments.
Hair cut & finish – £43
Bee Sting facial – £200
Fat dissolving on neck – £800
Laser on face –£250
Microblading – £250
Russian Lips – £350
Lipolis course – £500
Lip Liner – £350
TOTAL – £ 2,743
I get a three-weekly root colour to touch up my greys and a blow dry three times a week.
As soon as Boris announced the reopening date, I was straight on the phone to Zaks. I couldn’t wait to get my dry, drab, dull-looking hair back to its pre-Covid bouncy self.
Masked up at the door, I felt excited as I waited impatiently to be let in. As soon as I settled in my chair, I instantly felt at ease and there was a great atmosphere.
Just a few hours later, I was almost unrecognisable. The next day I went to visit Deborah Mitchell at Heaven Health.
I had my brows waxed and tinted, a mani and a pedi, laser hair removal treatment and a bee sting facial, which I hear the Duchess of Cornwall and Victoria Beckham are fans of.
Sinking into the massage table, I felt I had come home and it was bliss – the most divine facial I have ever had in my life.
Afterwards, I was glowing. I looked younger and felt refreshed, like I had just slept for a week.
My makeover was a long time coming, and even the masks and precautions didn’t dampen my wonderful experience. I don’t feel myself without my treatments and I say if you work hard, relax hard too."
