Tesco launches health and beauty salons

Tesco has launched a new health and beauty service which includes hairdressing, nail and threading bars. Nail bars and threading are currently being trialled at stores in Wembley, Cambridge Bar Hill, Milton Keynes Kingston and Manchester (Walkden) and standalone beauty salons (which will also offer hairdressing services) will be opened in Leicester and Chesterfield on 31 January. One of the benefits of the service is that no appointments will be necessary. The services on offer at Leicester and Chesterfield will be hair styling and colouring, waxing, manicures and threading. Customers will also be able to purchase products including Redken and TIGI Bedhead professional haircare ranges. Prices will be competitive: £20.00 for a cut and blow dry, £15.00 for a shampoo and £12.50 for a hair cut. A half leg wax will be priced at £10.00 and full leg is £15.00.
