Magazines Are Back!

As part of the re-opening of Wispers back in July and in line with Government advice (and common sense) we removed the magazines from our salon. This was a hard decision to make as we know how much our customers like to relax with a magazine during their appointment. We have been looking for an alternative and we are now pleased to announce that on our return in early December we can offer access to over 100 of the most popular titles in our salon. However, these will not be paper versions but instead you just point your own phone or tablet at one of the QR codes placed on the mirrors and it will take you to your own library on your own device for you to choose your magazine(s) to read. Titles include Vogue, Country Life, Hello, Elle, GQ etc and all titles are the latest version as you would find in the newsagent.

We hope you like this new innovation which means that you can still enjoy your favourite title but with the confidence of knowing that you are reading it on your own device.

  • All stations cleaned as soon as vacated with medical grade cleaning products
  • Air condition filters cleaned daily
  • Salon deep cleaned every night
  • Screens at reception and in our nail room
  • Extra training and briefing for all team members to ensure all of the new compliance rules are practised without exception.
