I love it when you get unexpected little emails informing you of some new salon or service that you then get an intense desire to try out, despite impending bankruptcy . . . yes, I’m being sarcastic.

But this is slightly different: following on from the success of The Grooming Rooms on South William St, the guys there have decided to expand their service to offer a dedicated beauty salon for women, Eve. It’s a testament to the success of The Grooming Rooms that customer demand has resulted in a salon for women, because while The Grooming Rooms itself is a niche service, beauty salons for women are 10 a penny these days – so they must be doing something right.

Eve offers the same range of treatments you would expect at any upmarket beauty salon: manicures, pedicures, massage, spray tanning and a range of body treatments – and for the month of August, you can get 25% off any treatment as an introductory offer.  Meaning, for example, that a Dermalogica Prescriptive Facial will set you back €60, instead of the usual €80. More of this please.
