The Latest Beauty Trends

10 Big Beauty Trends to Watch Out For in 2021 at Martin & Phelps Beauty Salon in Cheltenham

So 2021 hasn’t exactly started out the way that we thought it would but, over the last year, we feel that we have made some BIG discoveries about ourselves and what we truly want from our beauty regimes in the future. 

Below, the beauty experts at Martin & Phelps Hair & Beauty Salon in Cheltenham look at the big revelations we’ve had and what they mean for us over the coming months….

Areas We Cover





Dewy Skin

Lockdown has been a chance for many of us to stay at home and not worry about the daily commute or wearing a full face of make up every day. As a natural result of the lack of pollution and products, regular exercise and a reduction in alcohol consumption, many women have found that the result is glowing, younger looking skin. 

Ensure that a return to normality doesn’t include going back to drab, lifeless skin by booking in for a skin brightening facial at our Cheltenham beauty salon when we reopen – and keep up the good work with your healthy new home regime!

Short Nude Nails

Shorter Nail Ideas, Martin & Phelps Hair & Beauty Salon in CheltenhamWhilst we’ve been unable to have a regular manicure, nails extensions or gel polish and been more hands on at home, many women have found that shorter nails just make life so much easier!

Short nails doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice being stylish though! There are many ways to show off your individual style, look elegant AND still be completely hands on – without the worry of breaking your long nails. 

Once we have a reopening date, book in for a regular manicure and speak to your Martin and Phelps nail expert about how nude nail polish can make your nails look longer, without worrying about breaking them so much!


Collagen Boosting Face Masks

With a lot of extra time on our hands, many of us actually managed to get that often talked about “me time” and took to pampering ourselves with regular face masks in front of our favourite Netflix shows (Bridgerton anyone?!). 

Whilst we may not have so much time once vaccines are implemented and restrictions start to ease, it is still important to keep this regime up to ensure your skin looks beautifully plumped and youthful. Speak to your Martin & Phelps skin expert about the Resultime range of products we stock, with their collagen boosting properties these express treatments can help to keep you looking younger for longer, in the comfort of your home.

Skincare for Your Body

Environ Skincar, Body Care, Martin & Phelps Salon in CheltenhamOne thing we can be guilty of from time to time is neglecting to treat the skin on the rest of our bodies with as much care as the delicate skin on our faces. Did you know that your hands and décolletage are one of the biggest give aways to our age?

Treat your biggest organ well with the fantastic Environ Body range, which has been scientifically formulated with a combination of vitamins, antioxidants and moisturisers to work together to enhance skin’s overall appearance. These products help to reduces cellulite and tone the skin, giving you supple, firm and younger looking skin.


Personalised Skincare & Analysis

If we’ve learned anything over the last year, it’s that there’s no “one size fits all” for most things in life – so why should your skincare be any different?

Book in at our Cheltenham beauty salon to have your skin analysed with one of the most technologically advanced systems available. Our highly trained skin care professionals can analyse your skin and give you expert advice and a bespoke home-care or in-salon regime to help you to address issues including sun damage, pigmentation, blocked pores, wrinkles and lines. We can even help to stop skin damage before it becomes visible.

Beauty Supplements For Improved Skin, Hair & Wellbeing

Advanced Nutrition, Wellness Supplements, Salon in CheltenhamOne of the best ways to look younger and feel better is to look after our bodies from the inside. The process of ageing starts from within and cosmetic creams and procedures can only do so much by themselves.

Support your skincare regime with a range of vitamin enriched supplements now available at Martin & Phelps salon in Cheltenham. We stock a premium-quality range of skin supplements which are designed to turbo boost the results of your skincare regime by nourishing the skin from the inside and look after your general wellbeing.

The Importance of Pedicures

Whilst we may have been given a rest from high heeled shoes, many of us have pottered around in slippers or pounded the pavement in training shoes and our feet have certainly shown it! Treat your toes to a gel polish and soothe tired feet with a regular pedicure at Martin and Phelps Hair & Beauty Salon in Cheltenham, your feet will thank you for it!

For a truly blissful treat, why not book in for our Luxury Pedicure, which includes a foot soak, scrub, foot and lower leg massage.  

Show Them How Much You Care

gift vouchers, martin & phelps hairdressers and beauty salon in Cheltenham, GloucestershireThe last year has been incredibly challenging for most of us, social distancing meant that we have gone months without seeing parents, siblings or our closest friends. Many rules on travel and social bubbles meant that birthday parties, holidays or social gatherings were unable to go ahead. 

If you’re looking for the perfect present for your loved ones, why not treat them to a spot of pampering at Martin and Phelps Salon in Cheltenham when we reopen?

Our gift vouchers can be tailored for specific treatments, or for any amount that you wish so that they can choose for themselves. Best of all, we can post out the voucher for you if you aren’t able to visit due to the current restrictions. 


Massages to Soothe Anxiety

Soothe away the aches and tensions you’ve been holding with one of our expert massages. Massage is one of the best ways to physically relax as well as helping to clear body toxins, improve circulation and promote general well-being?

Book in for a massage when the salon opens and give yourself some much needed “me time” by closing the door on the rest of the world, without access to your phone, for an hour. Find out more about our massage services HERE. 

Faking a Holiday Tan

sunless tan, spray tan, martin & phelps, beauty salon, cheltenhamDid you miss a holiday last year or you had one cancelled due to travel restrictions? Are you feeling a little down without a golden glow?

Fake your holiday and book a trip to the Cheltenham Riviera and treat yourself to one of our expertly applied spray tan services

You can choose the level of tan that you desire and the results will last up to 7 days but more importantly, it’s a lot safer than exposing yourself to the harmful UV rays of the sun.

A Pina Colada is optional but we would ask that you wait until after you leave the salon!
