What a wonderfully relaxing treatment. Oils mixed specifically for my needs by Anita and then an hours relaxation delivered by Beth. Wonderful, would totally recommend and will be returning again for more of the same. Excellent.

This was the 1st time I have been to Anitas Beauty Works & I really enjoyed the experience. It was the best manicure I have ever had & will certainly return. Thankyou
02/02/2015 - Debbie Good - Thalgo Eye Massage - February 2015
I was extremely lucky to be the Winner of the Anita's Body Works Open Day Raffle in November. My prize was a session of the new Thalgo Eye Massage Mask. I chose to have the warm gel mask instead of the cold. While I was having this treatment I also had a manicure and I felt wonderfully relaxed and comfortable.
The mask was comfortable to wear and after the massage, my eyes were refreshed and I could see a definite 'brightness' around the eye area. A must if your eyes are tired and in need of a little pampering.

I have just had a Shellac manicure at Anita’s Beauty Works and was delighted with the result. Anita and the young ladies who help her are always very friendly and helpful. I have had other treatments there and have always been pleased with the results. Before Christmas, Anita had a late opening night with all sorts of special offers. She had beautifully wrapped a variety of Thalgo products and I purchased some of them. They made excellent gifts for my daughters and granddaughters.

I've been going to Anita's Beauty Works for 4 years - as soon as you walk in you are always welcomed - the atmosphere is very relaxing and so is the treatment. I usually have a hald leg wax and bikini every 4-5 weeks with Anita, and with the loyalty points I have a manicure with Beth. Nothing is a problem to the staff at Anita's Beauty Works.

I have been a client of Anita's for a number of years. From my very first visit Anita and her staff have always made me feel welcome and relaxed. Nothing is ever a problem and the professional service and time taken to listen to what you want is always paramount. My children (not tots I have to add) have also grown to love the service and treatments this little place offers. I am always recommending this little place in paradise to anyone that mentions having a treatment. Thankyou Anita and other colleagues for your continued care
12/04/2014 - Benjie - Mens eye brow wax - April 2014
I absolutely love my eye brows, I am so pleased with them. I always get a warm, friendly and positive welcome when I visit which continues throughout my treatment, Anita herself is very polite and caring and has clearly perfected her craft. my eye brows have never looked so good and being a man who has very thick strong dark hair that grows very quick Anita has managed to perfectly shape them in a manly yet tamed fashion. Overall I highly recommend going Anita's beauty works she has many treatments available and provides a friendly and professional service. thumbs up !!!

29/01/2014 - Gill Williams - Massage, eyebrow wax and tint and shellac file and paint - January 2014
Had my wonderful competition winning treatments today with Beth. Began with my usual waxing (not part of the prize!) then had a lovely back, neck and shoulder massage. As Beth can vouch for, this was much needed to 'unknot' my neck. Then a first for me, eyebrow wax and tint. Really happy with the result, no more 'tweezering' for me. Finished with a shellac file and paint and my short nails now look glam. Thank you so much, as always a relaxed, friendly visit. My little oasis.
12/11/2013 - Sheila Markham - Thalgo eye treatment - November 2013
Won the monthly competition very suprised. Really enjoyed the treatment with Shari, always enjoy being pampered and I love coming here, Everybody always helpful and friendly, felt very relaxed afterwards, I could have stayed all day. I have had number of treatments since Anita has been in Willingdon and have enjoyed everyone. Many thanks to you and your team.
09/11/2013 - Sharon L - Eyebrow wax and tint - November 2013
Just wanted to say thank you for how you did my eyebrows today - Anita ensured she knew exactly what I wanted and took time to check with me throughout. I am not a big fan of having treatments, but she made me feel both relaxed and comfortable to such an extent that I asked about a facial next time too! Thanks. Oh, and my brows look great!
14/10/2013 - Rachel J - Facial and skin consultation - October 2013
I was so excited after my phonecall from Anita telling me I had won the competition, I've never won anything before. It was a very lovely and relaxing treatment with Beth, I couldn't think of a better way to spend the time on a miserable, rainy day. Just a shame I had to go home. I normally have Shellac treatments, so this was a real treat for me and I think I need to induldge in more facials now! from now on!
12/07/2013 - Chris Sugden - Neck, Shoulder & Back Massage - July 2013
It was wonderful so relaxing and the whole ambiance was one of well being and restfulness. The treatments were excellent and I enjoyed the soothing music and effect of the massage oils. I was over the moon when I was told I had won this and thank you Anita.
05/07/2013 - Jamie Knell - Paraffin hand wax - July 2013
I won a massage in the competition but preferred a paraffin hand wax. There was no problem in exchanging the treatment. Wonderful surroundings in the village and treatment was excellent. :-)

I won the fab massage for feb draw. Anita is highly trained and it shows in her massage, very relaxing you wouldn\'t be disappointed. Highly recommend her! Thank you again :)
08/03/2013 - Jackie Higgins - Massage - March 2013
I was thrilled to get a phone call to say I had won a massage in the monthly competition - the back massage was a real treat for me and very relaxing. I normally only have a leg wax so this was brilliant. I have been visiting Anita\'s for over 2 years and she is really friendly and you feel relaxed as soon as you walk in. A big thank you once again.

Pleased with shellac manicure. Friendly staff relaxing and welcoming salon in peaceful location. I'm a regular customer and thoroughly recommend the salon. Treatments are individually tailored to your needs, they have brilliant special offers and a loyalty scheme. Parking easy (right outside salon) also easy to get to by bus to church street Willingdon.
16/10/2012 - Christine - Massage - October 2012
Accompanied by soft gentle music, I have just had the most relaxing massage. Shari really got to grips with my crunchy muscles and eased the tension that has built up over a long time. I felt comfortable and at ease in the salon and will certainly go back for more! Thank you so much.
14/09/2012 - Jayne Hughes - Shellac Manicure - September 2012
I am so pleased with my Shellac Manicure! I love the colour - Hot Chilli Pink - and the whole treatment was really friendly and professional. I have recommended the salon to several friends and cannot praise the staff highly enough.
29/08/2012 - Tracy Emmeney - Shellac File & Paint - August 2012
Today's file and paint was a pleasure with Anita being as friendly & professional as always. I love the intimacy of the salon in such a tranquil location and will continue to visit for my treatments. The file and paint was with the new "Shellac" system & it really does dry instantly - I've never known anything like it!!!! Thanks Anita c u soon :O)
24/03/2012 - Kimberley Hampson - Thalgo Facial and Massage - March 2012
This was my first visit to Anita's Beautyworks and I will be returning. Most welcoming with a warm, relaxing atmosphere. There is a vast choice of treatments but it is clear that the staff what to ensure that you receive the correct treatment tailored to your needs and they are friendly and caring.
I normally sleep very poorly but the night after my treatment I had the best night's sleep I have had in months.
21/01/2012 - Marian Williams - Lava Shells - 2012
Today I had the most wonderful treatment, back neck and shoulders with Lava shells. They were beautifully warm and comforting on a cold and blustery day. The atmosphere at Anita's is always warm welcoming and friendly, I love going and which ever treatment I have I always come out feeling better.
Just before Christmas I had a New World Facial it was wonderful the music and peace was so relaxing.
Thank you Anita, Shari and Katie for your warmth and friendliness and lovely treatments.
20/10/2011 - Nicki Powell - Daughter's 13th Birthday treats - October 2011
My daughter and three friends had a great time! Shari and Katie did nails and a skin care lesson/facial suitable for their age group along with a quiz. As always they were very well looked after by the girls on the evening and Anita in her care and attention in the planning. Thank you!!
21/08/2011 - Rachel Ledner - Gel Nails - 2011
I find Anita's a lovely, relaxing and welcoming salon. Wonderful staff - always happy for a chat! My nails are always done wonderfully, and I always leave with a smile on my face looking at my fingers! Haha!
I am very proud to be a customer at Anita's Beauty Works.
09/07/2011 - Janet - massage / reflexology - June 2011
I travel from croydon to have treaments very friendly and much cheaper than where i live, love going cant wait to book next treament.
20/04/2011 - Eleanor Robbins - March 2011
I have been going to Anita's Beauty Works for a couple of years now since moving to the area. It is easily the best salon I have been to for friendly, personal and professional service. I'm fortunate enough to be within walking distance but if you are not you can literally park outside the salon and there is a bus service at the bottom of the road. There are a wealth of treatments to choose from and frequent special offers to take advantage of if you want to try something new. If you haven't been before, give it a go, you won't be disappointed.
07/02/2011 - Lynda Brown - Various visits
I was given a gift voucher several years ago to have a treatment and got "hooked". The atmosphere and staff are just brilliant. The treatments are tailored to fit you personally and you never feel rushed. I would recommend this to anyone. I shall be there again shortly!!
29/01/2011 - Susan L - Consultation fine lines and open pores
I had a very relaxed and useful consultation with Anita today and have decided on the Dermalift and massage.
07/11/2010 - Gloria Walley - Pedicure with French Polish
I had a pedicure for my belated summer holiday, it was marvellous. It lasted 6 weeks without a chip anywhere and I would recommend it to any one. I swam in salt water, wore sandals for two weeks and walked on beach shingle, not even ascratch. I have had pedicures at other places but the standard of Anitas was much higher. Thanks.
22/10/2010 - Rebecca Paige - First visit in August 2010
I received a voucher for my 50th birthday and as I'm always busy this was the first time I had tried anything like this and went with an open mind.
When I arrived I was made to feel very welcome and felt at ease. The whole experience was great and I have been back twice since. I will be in touch soon.
12/10/2010 - Catherine Williams - 28th September 2010
FANTASTIC! My facial was so relaxing! Anita is really professional and she makes you feel special, very relaxed and you don't feel that your treatments are being rushed. I would recommend it to anyone. I can't wait to go again!!!
20/09/2010 - Esther Richards - Numerous visits sunce 2008
I was buying a gift certificate for my sister and decided to come myself. Anita was very friendly, the atmosphere was warm and inviting which put me at ease immediately. I really enjoyed my treatment (Aromatherapy massage) and have already booked my next visit!
07/07/2010 - Julie Warner - 3rd July 2010
I recently visited Anita's Beauty Works for the first time. I had the green tea facial which was really good, it felt like she was very experienced, my skin felt great afterwards. Overall absolutely pleased I have finally found a great place to go for my beauty treatments. Thanks and I will be recommending to all my friends..
22/01/2010 - Jo Phan - 24th July 2009
I visited Anita's Salon the day before my wedding on recommendation from a friend. It was lovely, Anita was fantastic and all the treatments were amazing. I felt relaxed, well pampered and ready for my big day. Anitas mum even came in to help to help the day run smoothly. My bridesmaids and friends thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
