Welcome to the Beauty Room

where beautiful portraits begin


We believe that a portrait session isn’t complete without a wonderful, esteem-boosting beauty experience. That’s why we are unique amongst portrait studios in offering a beauty room where you can enjoy wonderful, pampering beauty treatments.

 It’s the perfect place for you to treat and indulge yourself.. before or after a portrait session, or just because!.


The Beauty Room is open to everyone, not just portrait clients….
so why not book in today for a complimentary skincare and makeup consultation?


At the Beauty Room, we’re independent consultants & distributors for the world-class Arbonne range of products. We have skincare essentials, anti-ageing products and a full range of cosmetics for you to try and buy – for every skin type and age.

Arbonne products are dermatologist tested and clinically proven plant based formulations, combining the best of science & nature. They’re also Vegan Society certified and contain no harmful parabens, mineral oils, gluten or chemical dyes & fragrances.

Best of all, the Arbonne RE9 Advanced Skincare range has been independently laboratory tested against market leading brands and proven to provide the BEST results for a healthy, young looking complexion – with signs of ageing visibly reduced in just 4 weeks. 

The Arbonne cosmetics used in your portrait makeover are all available for you to order through us – or you can book a complimentary cosmetics consultation, where our product experts will guide you through the ranges and advise you on the best items to match your skin and your style.

Our superb Galvanic Spa facials are a revolutionary way to firm and brighten your skin, decrease the appearance of wrinkles, reduce dark circles and help create a more youthful appearance.

With results visible from the very first treatment, a Galvanic Spa facial is ideal to add to your portrait package to give you an instant boost. We also offer courses of six treatments, with regular ‘topups’ to create a long-lasting effect.


Want to add a real wow factor to your portrait images? If you’re experiencing thinning hair, growing out a haircut, or just want the glamour of ‘big hair’, then talk to us about adding temporary hair extensions to your portrait package.

Temporary hair extensions are matched to your own hair colour and are either clip-in or on a halo band – meaning instant results and a gorgeous new look!

Running out of time to fit in an appointment for a manicure or pedicure before your portrait session? Then why not book one with us whilst you’re here? You’ll save time AND have the perfect look to complement your outfits for your photoshoot.

Plus, you can wind down with a hand massage or even an Indian head massage – what could be more luxurious?
