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 January 31st.
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 top of the range products including Redken and TIGI Bedhead professional haircare ranges.
Andrew Carpenter, Beauty Category Manager at Tesco, said: "We recognise the beauty market is a huge opportunity and we know there is a lot more we can be offering our customers. We know Beauty Treatments are very popular with many people these days, and we feel the convenience of great value and quality services from manicures to full waxing and styling could be a success with customers. We are only at the testing stage currently and keen to understand how our customers receive the service in these stores."
Prices will be competitive - £20 for a cut and blow dry, £15 for a shampoo and hair cut and £12.50 for a hair cut. A half leg wax is £10 and full leg £15.
