"I became a mum two years ago and with the frantic pace of motherhood I felt that I had lost my way a little and also a little of my old identity - I was mother and wife first and I came way down the list of priorities. So, when I was treated to a make-over session i did feel a little self-conscious at first but then found myself relaxing and enjoying the treatment. When I looked in the mirror I was completely overwhelmed it was ME not wife or mum but Dawn!! A fantastic experience and definitely one to be repeated - thank you so much." Dawn, Nottingham - PICTURED BELOW


"Had my first two treatments tonight at The Lakes, facial microdermabrasion and a body detox massage. The whole experience from booking the treatments to leaving for home afterwards has been exceptional. Wendy is professional and vet friendly. She explains all what is going to happen and the quality of her treatments are excellent. I will be booking another lot of treatments so that I am in tip top condition for my wedding which Wendy is doing my makeup for." Clare R, Nottingham

"Wendy is a lovely lady. I thoroughly enjoy going to her for a facial - it's a real treat and good value for money. The whole time I am there she makes me feel very special and even though I only have a facial, the experience feels holistic and I come away feeling refreshed mentally and physically. Wendy comes highly recommended. To top all that, she also has a fantastic sense of humour, and is very inspirational about life." Kim Allen, Nottingham

"My partner and I went for a treatment and it was 5* from start to finish. The ultimate example of top notch, personal service. The surroundings, detail of care and quality of treatment is the best I have ever experienced. Don't look anywhere else." Kelly, Nottingham

"I booked a wedding make-up trial at The Lakes after coming accross the website whilst browsing on-line. I went for the trial a month before the wedding. I wasn't sure what to expect but was really impressed with the exceptionally friendly service. Wendy really took the time to speak to me about what I wanted and to make sure that I was happy. She had a huge range of make-up and gave loads of great hints and tips during the trial. It actually turned out to be a fun evening and left me feeling very confident about the make-up on the day. On the morning of the wedding, Wendy arrived in plenty of time to do all our make-up. It was great to have her there as she was such a calming presence in the house! She took her time and made sure that I was perfectly happy with everything. Lots of people commented on how nice and natural the make-up looked and especially said that she had done my eyes really well! The make-up lasted all day without anything needing to be re-applied apart from the lip gloss and it looked really good in the photos. In conclusion, it was definitely worth having someone with so much experience as she was able to give great advice and was very reassuring. I would highly recommend Wendy to any brides-to-be!" Sarah Kear, Nottingham

"Wendy provided a truly professional service from start to finish.  Being someone who rarely wears make up (I have incredibly allergic skin!) she worked closely and carefully with me, taking into consideration all of my personal needs and listening to what I wanted my make up took like.  The trial was fantastic and Wendy was great at putting my mind to rest.  On the wedding day she was patient and considerate, keeping me calm and ensuring that I was happy with my make up.  She made me look stunning and I felt a million dollars!  Thank you so m uch for making such a difference to my wedding day :) " Lisa D, Nottingham

"Just a note to say thank you very, very much for helping me get exactly the look I wanted for my wedding day. My bridesmaids and mum also pass on their thanks too! I was nervous about choosing someone to do my wedding make-up but I would recommend you to any bride to be, thinking about having their wedding day make up done professionally. You brought an air of calmness with you too which was much appreciated, thank you for making me feel (and look!) beautiful" Sarah, Bingham

 "A very big thank you from me and my bridesmaids for helping us look fantastic on my wedding day last month. You went above and beyond what we expected and you made us all feel at ease. No wedding should be without you! Thank you Wendy and we will all see you soon." Melissa, West Bridgford

"Wendy did my make up for my wedding day. Her service went above and beyond my expectations through her personal approach and superb outcomes. Her friendly, approachable nature is second to none and she contributed hugely to the success of the day. I would highly recommend her!" Carole Clemens, Nottingham

"The reason I chose Wendy to do my Wedding Make Up was because she had done my make up the year before when I was a bridesmaid at a friend's wedding. I was so impressed with the make up that time that I kept her card until it was time for me to get married.  So glad that you were able to do my make up on my special day, I felt a million dollars"  Donna, Wollaton

"Thanks for the makeover, I had no end of compliments on my make-up at our Christmas Party" Helen, Gamston

"Wendy from The Lakes Beauty Service did the wedding make up for my wedding in May this year. She was professional throughout and did an amazing job, not just with the make up, but also in terms of putting myself, my bridesmaids and even my mother at ease! It was lovely to have her with us as we got ready before the wedding and I would recommend Wendy to any bride for her professionalism, the quality of her work and her lovely nature" Laura Kilduff, London

"I felt completely relaxed and refreshed after leaving you. Also, my make-over session was really good. I will definately have my make-up done again for my next special occasion." Pam Horvath, Ruddington

"Hi Wendy, just wanted to say thank you so much for your help on my wedding day. Your enthusiasm, professionalism, calming influence and above all your sense of humour made you a pleasure to have around.  My make up looked so all day and night, so much slow I even slept in it and went down to breakfast the next morning in it! Thank you once again and I hope to see you again soon for some treatments"  Rachel Fox, Nottingham

"I was relieved to find on my make-up lesson that I could keep most of my current make-up. It was just a question of using if differently and making a few additions. I learned some invalueable hints and tips and couldn't believe how I could look so different and more youthful with so little extra effort and cost" Jay, West Bridgford

"Many thanks for me and my Mum's wedding make up, we were delighted with the overall look and finish.  Your make up tips were invaluable and I now make sure that I fill in my eyebrow colour every day! You did a brilliant job in lacing up my dress too, a very talented lady!" Maxine Spires, Radcliffe on Trent 

I had a Thai Facial as a Birthday present and it was fabulous; You aren't rushed; things are done at your pace and you are thoroughly spoilt. I'm already booked for another treatment! L Bates, Nottingham

"Wendy did the make-up for me and my bridesmaids on my Wedding day and the service was brilliant. She was friendly and we all felt like we knew her for ages she really helped me relax on my wedding day. The make up looked amazing and lasted through the day. She also gave me useful advice and tips. A lovely lady to have around on your wedding day."  Lisa Krause, Nottingham

"The service provided was amazing, very personal and professional. I felt extremely relaxed and very confident that I would look perfect on my wedding day. It was more than worth it to have my bridesmaids and the mums make up done as well. They felt pampered and special too! I will definately be having all my treatments and pampering with Wendy in the future! 11/10!" Emma Knight, Nottingham

"Thank you so very much for organising the gift voucher for my friend and ensuring she gets it on her Birthday, which is amazing.  Thank you!  It is very refreshing to meet someone with trust in business these days and I do really appreciate it.  Being in Australia makes it difficult to organise things like this sometimes!  Thank you so much" 
Leanne, Australia

"A very pleasant and relaxing way to sepnd an hour. If you can't pamper yourself in this way occassionally it is a poor tale. Do it today" Cynthia Taylor, Ruddington

"Wendy did my make up for me and it was brill!!I felt like a new person, definitely would recommend to anyone. Thank you Wendy:)" Anna Bednarska, Nottingham

I have had several facials from Wendy and have been really pleased with the result.  After a full hour treatment, including head and shoulder massage, its time to wake up again (yes, I usually fall asleep it's so relaxing!).  Prior to finding Wendy, I used a local beauty centre on many occasions.  However, the constant talking, the phone ringing and the voices of people chatting in the main reception area were a long way short of ideal.  I can't recommend Wendy highly enough - a really relaxing and effective facial and a professional therapist all add up to money well spent. Enjoy it!"  Mrs C Turner, Nottingham

"It had been a long time since I had had a facial, it certainly wont be long before I have another one - what a wonderful treatment the Microdermabrasion Facial is"  Dawn, Woodlinkin
