What happened in 2017?

 

It’s been a crazy year at Queen B and how fast has this year gone? It seems like it was only yesterday we were celebrating our 1st birthday at Queen B Luxury Nail Lounge.
Wow, what a year it has been, we are super humbled to have met so many wonderful people who continue to choose Queen B as their salon of choice.

2017 was a crazy, fun and very busy year, we were awarded the Phorest Client Experience Award for the second year running, the Top Rated Treatwell Award for the second year running and we were also finalists in the in The Croydon Awards for Best New Business.

To say we are super proud is an under statement! We cant wait to see what 2018 brings!

January Blues

January is normally a time when the salon industry goes quiet, at the time of writing this, January is already about 70% full so if you are intending on getting your hands and feet pampered and are still to book your appointment, we advise you to secure those dates ASAP to avoid disappointment.

We have bookings all the way up until September and if you are planning holidays, weddings or any special occasion, it would be advisable to book those appointments too!

 

Thank you to everyone who has joined us this year, we look forward to seeing you again very soon – And thank you to everyone who has taken time to write a review about your visit. Please see below to read a few of them!

If you have any questions, want to get in touch about this blog or just want to say hello, please get in touch using the contact form below.

 

Lots of QB love and gratitude

Since I have been coming to Queen B over the last few months, Sharon has been a diamond, looking after me and doing such a great job.
She is very talkative and friendly which adds to the enjoyment of being in the salon.
The decor within the salon makes me feel extremely comfortable unlike other nail bars.

I am so pleased that I am able to be a customer of Queen B!!

Queen B is the best salon in Croydon. Recently renovated for their beautiful new beauty rooms.
I have to say this wax is the best wax I’ve ever come across, quick, completely pain free.
I was so shocked at how much it didn’t hurt! I was so scared to get waxed due to previous experiences.

I’ve gone from shaving to waxing but I am never shaving again, thank you Queen B for the ultimate relaxation and I always come out feeling great

Very relaxing. Very professional Nails: always top standard! Their Pedicures are the ultimate relax too..

100% always given, thank you for your service and excellent staff! I love QUEEN B

I had an amazing experience at Queen B’s today.

My daughter was with me and they treated her like a princess.

The manager went out of his way to provide her with snacks and treats to keep her entertained.
I had the signature pedicure.

I found the ambiance in the salon to be relaxing, chilled and welcoming.

The team are highly professional, focused and attentive to your needs. This has to be the best spa pedicure I have had.
I will certainly be returning and I would highly recommend this nail salon to anyone.

Excellent detoxifying massage- I feel so good. The bikini wax was a pleasant experience and professionally done to my satisfaction.
Lots of care and attention went in to find the perfect nail polish and then I was treated like a queen for my manicure and pedicure. Thanks Queen B

This is my 2nd Murad facial with Tina and it was just as amazing as the first, my skin is glowing! 😍

After my treatment Tina took the time to go through the Murad products that are suited for my skin type
and how and when to use them, she made sure I didn’t leave without getting the routine right!

Natasha Gordon
March 9, 2020

I always feel welcomed and fully relax when attending the shop. Everyone is always polite. It is also such a compliment to see my nails featured on your various social media platforms.

Amazing and friendly atmosphere from the moment you walk in. I have had Kianna the last few times and she is just brilliant. Friendly and a real perfectionist…
I always come away totally happy with what a great job she’s done

Helen Jones
May 31, 2019

I won’t go anywhere else to get my nails done since discovering Queen B.
They don’t use electric files which damage your nails, instead they really care about looking after your natural nails which a lot of nail shops don’t do!
Everyone is friendly and it’s such a relaxing and fun atmosphere.

Rebecca Noble
April 20, 2019

I had a wonderful Murad facial this evening.
Tina is so kind, professional and knowledgeable.
She really goes the extra mile to ensure you feel pampered and achieve the best results possible.

I have been going to Queen B for over 2 years and the level of service has been of a consistent high quality. I have specific ideas of what I want in colours and style and the team has always come up trumps. I am often complimented on my nails. Also the pedicures and facials are an absolute bliss. Definitely recommend!

Candi Lobato
April 20, 2020

This was my third full body wax session with Tina and, like the previous two, I can’t praise her highly enough.

Tina makes you feel relaxed and welcome and she carries out the waxing quickly, efficiently and with great skill.

She is also very friendly and a delight to talk to. It is such a positive, enjoyable experience and I love the smooth skin that I have afterwards. Thank you Tina!

Darren Morgan

What a fantastic experience from start to finish, never been to Queen b before.
Was following on insta and decided to book a group of 4 for they’re signature pedicures.
Peter managed to book us all in on a Friday at the same time… the staff were absolutely fantastic and very polite.
Peter, well he greeted us with Prosecco…. such a warm welcome thank you.
My feet felt so soft, even with my shoes on I felt as if I was walking on cotton wool.
I will definitely be returning not only for regular pedicures but also hoping to try the Murad facial

Dal Dee

Thank you so much for a fantastic, relaxing and enjoyable experience at Queen B.
Peter was brilliant and very patient with arranging our group booking, and the beauticians were really friendly and gave us all fantastic manicures and pedicures.
It’s a lovely salon with lovely staff and we all feel thoroughly relaxed.

We are very lucky to have Queen B in Croydon!

 

Lisa Hyde

A much more pleasant experience at Queen B than my usual trip to a nail salon.

Hygiene is top priority for me and it’s clear to see that it is for the staff here too. No overcrowding or being kept waiting, and no drills or acrylic here.

Just great service, attention to detail, friendly and professional staff and a great pedicure and manicure to top it all off.

One very happy customer that has already rebooked

Amanda Collins
May 2, 2019

I am feeling like a regular now after only 3 treatments. I need to use my fingers pointing out details to customers and gradually they are starting to take shape. It is a fact that people are generally living longer and anything we can do to keep looking good must make a difference. Would I recommend a treatment here – bet your arse! Brian

Brian Minter
September 9, 2017

Tina explained to me before my treatment what the procedure would be and that this would be the best experience I had ever had. I did think that this was a bold statement to make. As a lady who has visited many salons and countless Luxury Health Spas I did hope she had not oversold it and I would leave disappointed.

OMG in hindsight she completely undersold it, utter heaven, I cannot wait to tell my friends about this hidden treasure.

I would 100% recommend Tina and the Signature Pamper Experience to everyone and counting the days until I can do it all again next month.

Renay Crace
September 30, 2020

Top beauty salon nestled in the heart of South Croydon.. I cannot recommend Queen B enough for their amazing pedicures amongst other treatments I have had done. From the warm welcome of all staff, Peter’s energy and care, right the way to the immense hygiene throughout all treatments and tools is second to none. The wax and lash lift treatments were super too and you are well looked after.

Ten stars ☆

Couldn’t recommend Queen B enough!!
I’ve been going to Queen B for nearly 2 years, I book in every two weeks for my gel hands religiously. The level of treatment and care is always amazing, it’s never short of perfect in my whole experience.
All the staff are so friendly, they’re great at giving you perfect gels and all the products they use are premium quality.
I’ve also had a lash lift and tint, waxing, Murad facials and pedicures. Again, all services have been amazing!
5* beauty and nail salon!

Chloe Lister

The best nail salon I’ve been to in South Croydon!

I was offered to take my coat off when I arrived by a gentleman at the reception, and got a tea and cookie while I was waiting.

The pedicure service was great, it felt like they really took care about my feet. The salon was clean and beautiful, and it is very convenient to make appointment online 24/7!

I will be back! 🙂

always feel like a princess

I religiously visit Queen B and choose various staff each time, every single one amazing!
They are all so polite and really give you the most relaxing pampering, be it a simple gel soak off or full body scrub and massage
(Amy has the hands of an angel – highly recommend the QB signature pamper).
Shreen always says hi with a smile that will brighten any day.
You can tell they all really enjoy what they do and show so much care and attention to every detail and to you!

Absolutely flawless!

The Queen B team have been working magic on my hands and feet for several years but
now following a beautiful refurbishment they have moved into face and body treatments.
Just had my first massage and immediately booked my 2nd.
I’m a very chilled, relaxed, even happier Queen B customer.
Thank you Peter and team, salon looks beautiful and my shoulders haven’t been so far away from my ears in ages!

After being warmly welcomed into the salon, Shreen did a fantastic job on my nails (I promise next time I’ll ‘relax my hands’) The whole experience was super professional and efficient, and the salon felt very calm, welcoming and clean. Can’t wait to visit again in a few weeks!

I have been coming to Queen B since the day it opened.
This is the first time I have been back since the new beauty area has been opened and it looks amazing.
Peter and the girls are always friendly and make you feel so welcome.

Gel nails and a lovely spa pedicure which made me feel fab as I have been recovering from an operation.
I have booked my next 3 appointments already as I don’t want to miss out including waxing in the beauty area.

Thanks Queen B team xx

I’ve just had my second Murad facial at Queen B and the results were evident straight away. The facial left my skin vibrant and bright and I can see the benefits of having regular treatments. Tina is the best therapist I have had in 15 years of different treatments (She looked after me in a different salon) and the other therapists are thriving under her tutelage. The salon is immaculate and calm and the level of cleanliness is second to none.

Such a fantastic treatment – it excelled my expectations.
Tina made me feel so relaxed. All the elements of the treatment had been clearly thought out and it worked so well.
The small touches like a heated bed, warm pillow and eye mask ensured ultimate comfort and relaxation. Thank you! I will be back.
