Carola & Lynn run a weekly clinic at the salon, and have over 60 years experience between them. They have specialised in the aesthetics industry for over 8 years.
“My fascination with aesthetics developed when I became aware of the aging of my own skin” says Carola.“I would never administer anything I haven’t tried myself”
“Many of our clients feel they can pop in to ask for advice about a skin problem or a new treatment they may have read about. It is very rewarding to feel we are genuinely helping people to feel better about themselves. We give honest advice about how to achieve better skin and look the best you can”
Our best kept beauty secret has to be Retinol; a total wonder product with decades of clinical data supporting its’ efficacy. It not only helps skin cell turnover and boosts collagen production to keep skin firm and youthful, but also has great anti-inflammatory effects making it great for acne prone skin too!

Faye Jervis: Beauty Therapist & Semi Permanent Make-up Specialist.
I have worked in the beauty industry for over 7 years, 5 off these have been spent working with Conrad & the CB team. I absolutely love my job & this is portrayed in my work. I originally trained at the White Rose School of Health & Beauty and then went on to further my career training with Finishing Touches Group who are the leading micro-pigmentation company in the UK.
I would say my favourite treatment has to be semi permanent makeup, the results are amazing, and in some cases, life changing. It is so satisfying when a client loves the results, and has more confidence to boot!
In addition to specialising in semi-permanent make-up I also offer Meso-Therapy, which is becoming one of the most popular facials at the salon. It’s the most gentle and effective skin needling treatment available, and the plumping results are second to none!
My one Hero beauty product would have to be Decleor Prolagene gel spa skin repair. Amazing for all skin types and can be used on stings, bites, burns, skin, irritations, rashes, dryness, stretch marks, scarring…. and its anti-aging. A fab holiday product, which is great for me as I do love to holiday.
I have just returned from Vegas. It was amazing, by far my favourite holiday yet, although a little crazy, a day relaxing in the salon is definitely needed.
Lycon Wax is extremely popular with celebrities including Victoria Beckham, Sienna Miller and Minnie Driver. Australia’s Lycon Wax contains the finest resins, natural ingredients & aromatherapy oils to deliver superior performance, removing hairs as short as 1mm and with its low temperature it provides a much more comfortable treatment.
We have been specialising in Lycon Waxing for over 6 years, and it’s the only wax we recommend for sensitive and delicate skin.
The wax literally shrink wraps around the hair and does not stick to the skin. When the wax is removed it pulls from the very root of the hair follicle, removing the dermal-papilla. This will prevent hair breakage, in-grown hairs, bruises and redness and the painful sting associated with strip waxing, therefore leads to softer smoother skin for longer. It also avoids ripping off a layer of your skin at the same time!
REMEMBER with a good waxer you will NEVER go really red or be bruised!!

We want to do the legwork for you and bring together a calloboration of products that we have personally tried and tested and have proven clinical results! Simple!

Did you Know? Electrolysis is still recognised as the ONLY method of PERMANENT hair removal.
In the hands of a well trained electrolysis it’s a perfectly safe and highly effective treatment and will work on (and is suitable for) ALL hair types and colours and ALL skin types and colours.
Unwanted hair causes enormous distress, as anyone who has suffered with it will understand, and often brings with it a sense of isolation, low self worth and poor-self esteem. Unwanted hair can be genetic or inherited or one of the symptoms for disorders such as polycystic ovary system. There are also many medications and drugs that cause or stimulate unwanted hair growth as well as hormonal changes within the body such as during puberty, pregnancy and menopause.
If you have tried laser treatments but have found it does not work due to hair colour, thickness of hair, or your in a vicious waxing circle electrolysis maybe for you. Many women and indeed many men have benefited from this tried and trusted treatment. Speak to a therapist on 0114 266 6646 or visit our website.
Hydrodermabrasion is quite simply amazing, it’s sure to give you the best skin exfoliation and skin plumping you’ve ever had and most importantly it is chemical free. After just one treatment your skin will look and feel incredibly refined, deeply hydrated, refreshed and smooth.
The latest technology in skin therapy immediately improves the appearance of multiple skin conditions, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, acne, unwanted pigmentation and plumps.
Hydrodermabrasion is chemical and crystal free, and is touted as offering superior results to microdermabrasion (in which skin cells are removed by light abrasion), with minimal discomfort.
It can be done within a lunch break, its proponents claim, with no excessive redness. It works by channelling compressed micro-droplets of sterile water at a supersonic rate onto the skin, which stimulates circulation, lifts out impurities and hydrates.
For more information on the treatment and exclusive offers to our existing clients, get in touch today.
After being involved in the hairdressing industry for over 10 years, I’ve noticed, now more than ever the need for more specific mens treatments.
Working alongside Conrad we’ve developed a male grooming menu for the salon to be launched in December. The inspiration comes from magazines, London fashion week, and more generally the regular guy on the street as mens fashion and beard obsessions are bigger than ever!
For a while now the beard has dominated the male grooming scene becoming the ultimate fashion accessory. Yet, as with most trends, there is a shelf life. So are we witnessing signs of a change? The need for a style overhaul, Hollywood’s most fashion-savvy men are banishing the bristle and opting for a cleaner, fresher and more polished look.
After recently graduating from the London School of Barbering, stylists at Conrad Blandford can now offer full cut throat wet shaves and beard grooming. This makes an amazing Christmas gift for the “difficult to buy for Male”.
My favourite product for men is L’Oreal professional Homme Matte Sculpting paste, which gives a really natural hold.
Join us on the 1st December for an evening of beauty treatments, shopping, exclusive discounts, advice from industry experts, demonstrations, amazing raffle prizes and new product launches. Cosmetic nurses will be on hand to answer all your questions.
Drinks and food will be provided by the new Brocco on the Park and fashion from Love the Lot.
It’s an evening not to be missed, we’ll be here from 5.30pm until 8pm. Tickets are just £5 which admits two people and includes £10 worth of raffle tickets on arrival.
The £5 for every ticket sold goes to “My new hair charity”.
We look forward to seeing you!
Pop into the salon and buy your ticket!

Congratulations to Alecia and Dan on their wedding this July at Thornbridge Hall!
Where does a stylist constantly creating looks for brides draw her own inspiration from?
My inspiration came from the famous style icon Audrey Hepburn, I admire the timeless simplicity of an updo! I wanted something classical but beautiful, my choice of make-up enhanced this look, I opted for dark eyes and to soften the look, a nude lip, with some cleverly applied contouring to elongate my face….. that’s enough secrets!!!!
How long have you been working at Conrad Blandford?
I have been hairdressing for 15 years, and have been with the Conrad Blandford team for 7 of those. I can honestly say I absolutely love my job!
How do you keep up to date with new styles and trends?
My inspiration for new emerging trends, mainly come from New York and London fashion week, as the hair has to compliment new styles of clothing, also as a stylist it is nice to get out of your comfort zone and have a play with your creative imagination. We are always growing, and learning new techniques.
What is your “Desert Island” hair product?
Arrrgghhh…. You’re asking a stylist to choose just one!!! It would have to be Kerastase Elixir Ultimate (green) , I have naturally curly hair, and I like having the versatility to wear it straight, this beautifying oil is perfect for that, it smell AMAZING too!
Name one beauty product you cannot live with out!
Decleor Aroma Night Balm Neroli – I use it every night, it not only gives your skin a pick me up, it refines my skin texture. The oils are also very relaxing, I wake up with refreshed skin, I love this balm!
