Leslie Frances, the salon on Fargate which was formerly Headlines Elite, has a summer offer on. Customers can get a free colour treatment with their cut and finish.

Worth £29, the Wella Colour Touch or Colour Fresh treatment gives you a glowing new look for the summer. Both ranges are semi permanent - the effect will last up to four weeks. An allergy skin test is required 48 hours prior to appointment. The offer ends on July 20.

The new city centre salon has launched a glamorous summer getaway package.

For £45, you get an Artistic Colour Gloss Gel Polish - choose whether it’s on your hands or your feet - plus a brow shape and tint and a Lauren’s Way full body spray tan, plus a top-up. The offer lasts for the whole of July.

The Salon has just launched a customer loyalty card which gives regulars a free product of the day on the sixth visit.

Desperate for a pampering facial, but short on the readies? Head to the Sisley beauty counter at John Lewis for a chance to trial the very latest in skincare from the luxury French beauty brand for £25.

Sisley is owned by a count and countess and is renowned the world over for its highly effective anti-ageing skincare and a range of colour cosmetics that ignore high fashion trends and focus instead on helping women achieve a classy, natural look.

Your £25 facial takes place in a private beauty therapy room away from the shop floor. Gentle music plays and as the Sisley sales rep applies a lengthy succession of cleaners, deep exfoliating masks, treatment serums and creams, there’s a facial massage so relaxing you cannot help but fall asleep. As I can vouch - I had the facial last week. I exited with a glowing complexion. A few pimples erupted the next day, but my skin soon settled down and looks smoother, brighter and less lined.

Better still, if you buy two Sisley products, you get your £25 back.

The first 25 readers who mention this article when booking a £25 Sisley Botanical Facial will receive a complimentary 10ml All Day All Year cream and 2ml Supremÿa night cream.
