Elizabeth C Beauty Clinic spent its first 5 years on Castle Street, which was off Shop Street beside the Treasure Chest. Castle Street no longer exists, having made way for the mall that enters onto Edward Square. Galway City was a very different place 25 years ago and so was the beauty industry. There were no pedestrian streets and that meant you could park a car on Shop Street. There were no mobile phones, no internet and you could buy just about anything on Shop Street from clothes, to a suite of furniture to a television. Elizabeth C was the first salon to offer private treatment rooms and believe it or not the first to offer French manicures, among other treatments.
A lot has changed. Elizabeth C moved to Upper Abbeygate St and have been here for 20 years. They have seen huge changes in the industry and have worked hard to keep up with the changing trends. Elizabeth C upgrade and invest in new treatments and equipment on an annual basis, and their clients know that when they consult with them, they are getting the very best treatment they can offer them. Elizabeth C’s team of therapists are all highly qualified and constantly upgrade their skills to offer the very best level of service. In preparation for their 25th birthday, the salon had a major facelift during 2015 and finally changed the blue door, which was a long standing feature on Abbeygate St. All the treatment rooms were upgraded and the salon is looking amazing.
Decleor and Dermalogica are the skincare brands used for facial treatments, and currently there is 20% off all full facials. Elizabeth C have dedicated facial treatment rooms, quiet, warm and relaxing for the perfect facial experience.
For anti-ageing Elizabeth C have several treatments on offer and offer free consultation with all facial advice. Treatments include CACI non- surgical face lift, IPL skin rejuvenation and Radio Frequency lifting facials.
Waxing is a very popular treatment and they use both strip and Harley hot wax. Their therapists who offer the extended waxing menu are highly skilled to perform the most pain- free wax experience possible. Currently Elizabeth C has 20% off all body waxing.
Nail care is a very popular service and Elizabeth C has OPI for regular manicures and CND Shellac for a longer lasting manicure.
The salon is built on the combined experience of their highly skilled team of therapists whom they feel are the very best. They work very hard for each and every client to ensure that she leaves the salon looking fabulous and feeling happy, having had the right treatment for her need. Elizabeth C treat generations of families beginning with ear-piercing for the youngest ladies. The salon is wheelchair accessible, which for a city centre salon is rare.
