Hooka for Christmas?

Heather Smith chills out with a luxurious full body massage at Hooka; the ultimate two-for-the-price-of-one gift

Published on December 16th 2008.


Hooka for Christmas?

IT'S the Most Wonderful Time of the Year- according to Andy Williams - but let’s be honest, December can’t half be stressful. There’s so much to do and so much to remember, that it’s easy to forget about taking care of you.

So, in an act of complete selfishness, I chose to leave the mayhem of unfinished shopping behind and head to Hooka for a truly relaxing, hedonistic hour or two. And I’d fully recommend that you do the same.

After tackling the cold - and those cobbles on Wood Street - you can count on your personal Hooka professional to offer an extremely warm welcome.

Inside the up-to-the minute salon, which is unique to Liverpool, you are immediately encouraged to forget the crazy world outside, enjoy a hot drink and cosy down for a chat with your beauty therapist before deciding upon your treatment. With Hooka, there’s no rush.

And it’s a good job really, there’s so much choice on the menu. Whether you’re out for a haircut, colour or restyle, a wax, massage, manicure or pedicure, a sunbed, facial or a tan: you name it, they do it.

Originally, Hooka was a “Grooming Studio’”exclusively for gents, particularly the metrosexual males who had long suffered visiting so called ‘unisex’ salons that were clearly designed for women. Two years down the line and the girls, too, are now welcome at Hooka for the full range of treatments from the specialists, Harriet and Nicola

Within no time I’ve agreed to a full body massage lasting an hour (£45) and I’m duly ushered in to one of two exquisite beauty rooms, lit only by three scented candles and two soft uplights. Ultra-calming woodwind music faintly fills the room and it’s all rather hypnotic. The aromatic oils are out and I’m just about ready to nod off. To think I am only a few doors up from The Swan Inn.

A whole hour and eight fluty tunes later, I’m woken up, every bone and muscle in my body so glad to be feeling loose and utterly relaxed. A thorough File & Polish (£10 for 20 minutes), gave my body just about enough time to remember who it was before it was reluctantly time to go back into the real world.

It was over this more chatty treatment that I discovered that Hooka gift vouchers are available in any value and you can also purchase pre-bundled gift sets of the super-trendy hair, face and body products used in the salon treatments. Heck, they will even wrap them up for you; talk about job done.

It was after being helped into my coat to keep the still-drying fingernails perfectly shiny that I was baffled by the rush of life that I had left only an hour or so ago.Moving slowly back out on to a bustling Bold Street, I began thinking back to my Christmas list and the plenty of people on it who could use a Hooka-style self-indulgent treat. Maybe my visit wasn’t so selfish after all; at least that’s what I’ll tell myself.
