“I have been a client of Louisa’s since she first opened her salon over six years ago. Louisa does my nails on a regular basis and I constantly receive comments from friends and work colleagues on how great my nails look.

I also treat myself to a facial from time to time and never fail to be amazed at the experience, from the assessment she makes of my skin, and resulting products used for my skin type, and the explanation and information she provides on why she has chosen each of the products and the benefits that I will gain from them, all while make me feel completely relaxed. 

I have always been impressed by the level of professionalism and genuine care shown by Louisa and cannot recommend her more highly.

I have lovely nails thanks to Louisa.  It was with some trepidation 18 months ago that I came along to have Shellac applied to my peeling, broken nails.  I had never been able to wear nail polish without it chipping and looking nasty after 5 minutes and then I had damaged nails for months afterward.  However now I love my nails.  They are strong, stay looking fantastic for weeks with Shellac on them.  However not every nail technician is created equal – Louisa is amazing, she takes extra time  and pays attention to detail both things which contribute to the longevity of my manicure.  There is a great selection of colours and also neutrals – something for everyone.  I thoroughly recommend a Shellac manicure from Louisa she is the best!

“Lilash is a truely amazing beauty product and one that actually does deliver what it promises.I am a professional woman in her mid – 50′s and found that after using Lilash for only 8 weeks my lashes had grown so long that my friends all thought i’d had extentions!It’s a product “lll now never be without and i cannot recommend it highly enough.”

“I was referred to Louisa by a friend after having had some disappointing gel and Shellac applications at other salons.  Louisa is professional and thorough and best of all,  my manicures and polish last for at least 2 weeks and everyone asks “who does your nails?”  She also gives excellent after care advice and makes a wonderful coffee.  Thanks so much Louisa.”

 I, Chantelle have had many Spray Tans from Louisa Victoria Beauty over the years living in Christchurch.  Louisa is very friendly and helpful, making the whole experience relaxed and comfortable. Louisa is very  professional and precise making sure the tan is evenly distributed head to toe. I have never had a ‘bad tan’ from LVB, never patchy or too dark. I have always been completely satisfied and end up with an all-over even, gorgeous natural-looking tan. Since leaving Christchurch earlier this year, I have tried several different beauticians for Spray Tans and still have yet to find one with such a stunning natural tan, and flawless techniques during application. I also visited LVB for Shellac, the most amazing product I have come across. After 23years of struggling and failing attempts to grow my nails Louisa recommended I tried Shellac, within months I had grown my own natural nails beautifully long, healthy and strong.

I have been a client of Louisa for five years and during this time I have been very pleased and impressed with her professionalism, advice and general caring for my well being on all levels.  Louisa offers a wide range of services and products and is always looking for new ideas and products for her client base. 

Louisa is an extremely personable and intelligent woman who puts you at your ease as well as explaining every step throughout a treatment. I would have no hesitation in recommending Louisa to any future clients. 

Kind Regards

I have been going to Louisa Victoria Beauty for a couple of years now – I first started going because I was interested in shellac for my nails, and then gradually moved out to other treatments.  I love the shellac product – contrary to what many people think it doesn’t damage or ruin your nails (or it least it hasn’t to mine) and the colours and effects that can be achieved with the shellac products are snazzy and fun and I have had many people compliment my nails since I started visiting Louisa for shellac. 

Of the treatments I was most wary about having a facial.  I literally had never had a facial that did not make my skin break out, and I thought that maybe they just weren’t an option for me – the creams and oils were too heavy for my skin it seemed no matter what product was used.  But after a friend’s recommendation I did have a Dermalogica facial and was instantly hooked.  No breakouts, no over-oiliness, and the products feel clean and light and (to me) freshly scented – they have the natural scent of the ingredients themselves rather than added perfume.  My skin looks and feels amazing and people genuinely have commented on how much better my skin is since starting my facials.

Louisa has the highest standards of professionalism and is a perfectionist in everything she does.  No detail is to small and she always strives for the perfect finish and to give the best experience.  She is warm and friendly, and the atmosphere in her salon is always calm and relaxed.

I became a client of LVB because of the range of services offered by Louisa but I have remained a client because I think that the service and products are of such a high standard, I thoroughly enjoy my appointments and Louisa herself is so lovely.  No matter how long or short your treatment you feel that you really have had a genuinely pampering experience.
