Even if you're in Tallinn for only a day, you may find a couple of hours for beauty besides sightseeing and shopping. There are beauty salons and day spas for every taste, especially in the city centre. However, booking a time is a better idea than just dropping in.
The romantic Désirée Beauty in the Old Town comes with cosy rooms to "design" anything you want to have "designed": skin, brows and eyelashes, nails, body. At the foot of Toompea, just a stone's throw away from the Old Town, there is Le Salon, the salon of La Biosthetique hair and skin care products. You can touch up your hair or get hair treatment here along with facial treatments and a manicure. In the Ella Beauté salon in Foorum business centre, you will find yourself in a boudoir with beauty professionals pampering you and offering tomato treatments that will make you shine, anti-wrinkle seaweed treatments or special eye-mask treatments.
Near the Olümpia Hotel is the Yin and Yang health salon, which offers health procedures based on Chinese medicine and oriental facial treatments – you can also take a skin test here to select the beauty session or massage that suits you best and get care hints for everyday use.
Up in the sky, on the 24th floor of Radisson Blu Sky Hotel, there is the luxurious Babor Beauty Spa with a grand view, offering tightening collagen treatments or deep-moisturising paraffin masks for hands and feet. The Richbeth Beauty and Design Studio near Eesti Pank has beauty packages that include a facial treatment, make-up and hair styling.
Should you feel like treating your hair during shopping, you can drop in to Duglas, one of the best hair salons in Estonia, in the Solaris or Kristiine shopping centres. Hairlook in the Sikupilli centre on Sossi hill, on the other hand, is the kind of hair salon where they offer guests a welcome glass of bubbly, and you can pre-order snacks to have while getting your trendy hairdo and the latest trend in the beauty world, eyebrow extensions.
If you are interested in finding a suitable salon for your children, visit Rocca al Mare shopping centre. A special salon for kids, Juuksik, is located on the second floor of the centre.
Should you find that there is not enough hours for a longer treatment, just drop in to the Pillerkaar cosmetics shop in the Solaris centre, which is dedicated to Estonian natural cosmetics products. Its selection includes bog water from Estonian nature, peat masks and sea buckthorn lip balm, as well as creams that have been formulated according to the latest technologies.
