Beauticians, Indulgent Spas, Stylish Hairdressers and Chic Makeup in Aberdeen

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and when it comes to Christmas many people wish to feel fabulous in themselves. It’s a fun, festive time of year, with a host of parties and celebrations. It’s time to splash out on beautiful details like the perfect manicure, the chic up-do, professional make-up application and perhaps a pedicure or spray tan. Skene House has all the recommendations!
For guests staying at Skene House for their Christmas night out it’s easy to get the party started as soon as you arrive. Preparing for a night out is half the fun. Skene House offers the spaciousness of an apartment with its own kitchen, sitting room and one, two or three bedrooms, combined with the luxury and security of hotel services. This means some of your pals can be popping the prosecco in the kitchen, others getting changed in the privacy of their own bedroom, meanwhile in the living room a local, talented makeup artist, such as Katie Wight Aberdeen, can transform your look in a relaxed setting. Skene House lets guests live like a local, so feel free to get ready in the comfort of your own Skene home.
If you’d prefer to escape for some pampering then Skene House has many quality beauticians and spas on the doorstep, so book yourself in to get party ready from head to toe.
Holburn – Skene House Holburn welcomes guests with a complimentary drink from its Honour Bar. Once that’s been savoured and got you in the mood for celebrating, head off to one of our neighbours for some well deserved pampering. Nana Nails is the place to give the talons a treat. Just one hundred yards away, fast turnaround, creative nail artists can instantly add length, colour and shape to the most hardworking of hands with acrylics, gels and nail art. Down the road, Hatstand Nelly (7 minutes walk) combines great hair with juice! Whilst the locks are styled, down a healthy fruit shot, or try a juice or smoothie from Hatstand Nelly’s Juice Bar – all great preparation for the night ahead. As well as cuts and styling, the salon offers a range of hair and scalp beauty treatments, from Smoothing Masks and Split End Therapy, to Keratindose and Dermabrasion, these quick sessions combine a head massage with TLC for tresses. For some real pampering head to the House Spa (5 minutes walk). A retreat in the heart of the city, this will prove a real escape before the celebrations begin.
Rosemount – Skene House Rosemount is perfectly situated in close proximity to major shopping centres making it easy to nip out for last minute outfits, accessories, toiletries or gifts required for your night out. In terms of beauty treatments, guests have a lot to choose between. Eden Beauty, Beautylicious, Kut Loose and Image Hair and Beauty are all on these same street as Skene House Rosemount. For indulgent pampering it’s only an eight minute walk to James Dun’s House. Its Express Beauty Bar is tempting if time is short: sit with your pals at the Nail Bar for a fast track manicure, the James Dun teams also offers speedy lashes, brows, facials, make-up and blow dries. The blow dries are fantastic, in thirty minutes opt for a full volume ‘Bardot’, a ‘Greek Goddess’ braid, a textured ponytail ‘Pony Club’ or a classic ‘Side Sweep’. Book a Pamper Party for a great catch up with the girls whilst getting ready for a big night out.
Whitehall – Skene House Whitehall offers longer stays of seven nights or more and extended stays for those on projects or relocating to Aberdeen. Guests will inevitably get to know the friendly Rosemount area on their doorstep. It’s rich in quirky, independent shops with a lot of character, this includes welcoming beauticians to add sparkle to a festive night out. Simply Bliss (4 minutes walk) stocks Dermalogica products as well as St Tropez tans to add colour to the winter nights. Cach-Ca Hair Studio is well established and offers treatments such as Olaplaex and Kebelo alongside its cutting and styling. Or take a 9 minute walk down to Rose Street for Thai massages and treatments at the Thai House. Nails, lashes, threading and waxing are also on offer in this chilled out space in the heart of Aberdeen.
Once all the girls are glamorous, step out for the evening. Skene House properties are ideally situated close to the best bars, restaurants and venues in Aberdeen. Our 24 hour reception staff will happily book taxis to transport everyone without a hair out of place, and welcome you back safely once the party is over and the glitter has settled. Merry Christmas.
