At Siva, we do not do Acrylic nails. Prescription nails are way of adding some length to the nail by gluing on an individually sized, full coverage nail extension without the risk of damage to the natural nail bed. The false nail is removed by soaking the nails in acetone which removes all the glue and false nail without the need for filing back on top of the nail bed.

Shellac nail polish is set in the salon by an LED light which means the polish is completely dry before you leave the salon. It provides the client with chip resistant colour for up to 2 weeks (depending on the individual). Shellac needs to be removed in the salon using pure acetone to limit the damage to the natural nail.

Traditional polish takes up to an hour to be completely set. Traditional nail polish is able to be removed at your home by supermarket bought non-acetone polish remover.

Cosmetic treatments and products serve to modify or improve the physical appearance only at the surface of the skin. They typically have no medically proven or high active ingredients and are designed to cater to a larger "non-educated" consumer.

Cosmeceutical treatments and products are cosmetic based with the added benefits of biologically active ingredients e.g sunscreen in moisturiser. These products usually contain more active ingredients and may have the ability to treat beyond the surface of the skin.

Cosmedical treatments and products are arguably the most effective way to treat and manage skin concerns with products that can be purchased without a prescription. Cosmedical products are able to treat past and present skin damage and provide some preventative protection for the future.

Autoclave is a sterilisation system used by dentists, hospitals and surgeries, and many beauty salons, to ensure any stainless steel equipment that is reused is thoroughly clean and safe to be used on clients to prevent the spread of infection.

Our basic manicure and pedicure treatments include nail and cuticle work: cutting and filing of the nail, soaking and pushing back of the cuticle, massage with moisturiser and a nail paint with a traditional nail polish. The pedicure includes a scrub and pedi paddle to help in removing and reducing rough skin build up on the soles of the feet.

The Pure hair care range offers colours and treatments to nurture all hair types. All products in the range contain "Pure Complex", a unique blend of organic extracts and vitamins that give nourishment, protection and moisture to the hair and scalp.

For Make Up - Have clean skin with your usual moisturiser. Make sure mascara is all off to help application. Wear a button up top so easy to remove and doesn't need to go over the head.

An eye lash tint a few days before always helps produce a fantastic finish to your mascara.

For Hair - wash your hair the night before do not apply product and do not use any heat appliances to style. Please have your hair in its most natural form unless requested otherwise. Wear a button up shirt to make it easy to remove over hair style.

It is important that you are comfortable in the company around you on your special day and you know what the result will be. We highly recommend a trial so we understand what you want us to achieve and you meet us and understand how we operate.

3D Brow Building will allow you to re-construct eyebrows completely. You can create fullness and definition that can't be achieved with regular eyebrow grooming or makeup. The result is a waterproof and smudge-proof eyebrow, which is created by building on your natural shape to create fuller, thicker, luscious brows that have perfect definition and last for approximately 2-4 weeks.

The look is tailor-made for each person and suitable for those who have naturally good eyebrows as well as those who suffer from partial or complete eyebrow loss. We use individual hairs so you get a completely natural look.

SPM is a formaldehyde free, hypoallergenic, flexible lash coating with a similar effect to that of mascara, with the staying power unlike any other. This innovative product and treatment can be applied to both upper and lower lashes with a durable coating allowing for smudge and waterproof wear that can last for two - four weeks. So you don't have to worry about any mascara running on your wedding day also perfect for the honeymoon as you can get in and out of the water with what looks like perfect mascara.

IPL targets the pigmentation in the hair shaft and follicle. The heat created in the follicle causes damage that results in delayed re-growth of hair and, in most cases the permanent destruction of the hair follicles. The laser treats many follicles at a time so treatments are fast.

We recommend 6 - 8 treatments for most effective results. The number of treatments for any individual may vary to achieve desired results.

Post treatment responses vary depending on the coarseness, density and colour of the hair and the area being treated. Clients may experience redness similar to mild sun exposure.

The benefits include:

  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores and overall skin texture.
  • Assisting in the fading of freckles, age and liver spots and any signs of photo ageing skin.
  • Reducing the redness, flushing and appearance of rosacea.
  • Shrinkage, fading and disappearance of spider veins.
  • Fading and controlling the over production of pigmentation caused from melanoma.
  • Stimulating the cells that produce collagen. The production of collagen results in smoother and firmer skin.
