Heaven In Style: part salon, part day spa, and totally cool

It’s not always easy to take care of personal styling in Budapest – most reasonably priced salons specialize in only one or two types of beauty services, forcing clients to run around town if they want a complete makeover; meanwhile, some full-service boutiques here provide multiple treatments under one roof, but these places are often overpriced. Fortunately, downtown Pest’s Heaven In Style offers a full range of high-quality hairdressing and cosmetics services for friendly prices, along with some wellness amenities that are usually only found in a day spa – such as relaxing welcome drinks.

The sunlit atmosphere of Heaven In Style provides a warm ambience enhanced with coffee, tea, or sparkling wine poured for guests almost immediately after walking in. On the walls we see colorful modern-art pieces portraying close-up details from gorgeous faces, perfectly setting the mood for the rejuvenating procedures offered here for both women and men.

As hip tunes score this light and lively setting, the English-speaking receptionist leads clients to the appropriate area for their Heaven In Style treatment – the facility isn’t huge, but a carefully designed floor plan imparts the impression that every section here has its own spacious environment. At one end of the front hall there are four hairstyling stations and two hair-washing basins, while the other end features a curtained pedicure booth and two modern manicure tables.

Hair care is taken seriously here, with a wide variety of sophisticated styles created by using only exclusive product brands like Kevin Murphy, Balmain, and Milkshake to achieve world-class results. Customers can choose between having their hair done by a highly qualified senior stylist or a certified master stylist for a slightly higher price, but either way Heaven In Style provides amazing cuts, coloring, highlights, buns, and many other coiffure-complementing procedures for rather reasonable prices.

Meanwhile, artful manicures and pedicures are performed with impressive panache and top-grade components by producers like OPI, Crystal, and CND, including eye-catching fake nails and durable shellacking treatments. In addition to providing standard polishing services, Heaven In Style is one of Budapest’s only salons that offers nail-enriching Japanese manicures and pedicures.

The cosmetology team at Heaven In Style is also advanced in its dedication to modern make-up artistry – services include 3-D eyelash building, eyebrow shaping, all types of waxing, and make-up application using products by Babor and Hungary’s own Ilcsi Organic Skin Care collection. Other epidermis-revitalizing treatments encompass facials, AHA fruit-acid peels, and nourishing mesotherapy injections.

Additional services offered by Heaven In Style are more often found in day spas than in beauty salons – a cutting-edge customized solarium (equipped with Chocolate Brown bulbs) awaits along with tanning products by Australian Gold and SCYN, while varied massages can focus on loosening muscles in specific body segments or provide complete relief from head to toe. (Thanks to a newly developed Heaven In Style program, groups of workers can now arrange to have one of the salon’s massage therapists visit their office to provide invigorating on-site rubdowns.)

With all of these professional-quality treatments offered in one place, Heaven In Style is a popular choice for pre-wedding package offers among bridesmaids and groomsmen, and even combined hair and make-up services for groups of friends getting ready to go out on the town – with the premises always open to the public until 8pm except on Sundays, this is an extremely convenient city-center haven for going to look your best. All of these offers are made even sweeter when factoring in their affordable rates – for the level of quality provided with every procedure, Heaven In Style presents excellent value compared with most other Budapest salons.

To celebrate the first anniversary since Heaven In Style opened for business, the salon is hosting an open house all day on January 20, when sparkling wine will flow as visiting women receive free make-up applications and men are given manicures for no charge, and all other offers are provided for a 50% discount. Otherwise, walk-in customers are welcome for all basic services like hairstyling, nail treatments, cosmetology, or solarium usage, but appointments are highly recommended for massages and other procedures.
