I spent £1k on 10-hour pampering session to celebrate salons reopening– I got full-body laser so I’m never hairy again

YESTERDAY saw the grand reopening of hairdressers, beauticians and non-essential shops as lockdown restrictions lifted.

While lots of Brits rushed to the local beer garden for their first pint in months, influencer and model Jodie Weston spent 10-HOURS having over 10 beauty treatments.  

The blonde bombshell, who rose to fame on Channel 5's Rich Kids Go Skint, planned for the 12th April for months and admitted she was ‘counting down the days.’ 

Jodie, 27, from London, revealed she spent over £900 on treatments on the reopening day and described it as one of the ‘best days of her life.’ 

She said: “I’ve been so excited to get back in the salon. It’s been literally four months without my proper glam vibes so I haven’t been feeling my usual self. 

“I didn’t let myself go during lockdown as I tried my best to do DIY hair and beauty treatments but of course nothing is as good as the real thing and getting it done by a professional. 


“I spent 10 hours at Muse Of London as I had to have the full works to celebrate the big day. I’d been counting down the days and had never been so excited; it felt like Christmas again”.

Jodie decided to go ‘all out’ for the big day and organised herself with a team of stylists for her post-lockdown transformation. 

She arranged for two members of staff to dedicate the whole day to her and admitted she wanted to get as many treatments done as possible.

The social media star -who shares an insight into her glam life on Instagram – admitted that she feels like she’s looked like the same person for a year now and was desperate to make a drastic change. 


She added: “I wanted to get full-body laser hair removal, my nails done, my hair completely dyed back to my barbie blonde colour with new highlights, as well as my lashes, eyebrows, microdermabrasion and an express facial and more if I can fit more in. 

“I couldn’t wait to have my 10 hour pamper session, as it’s been a real struggle for me this year. I’ve come out like a new woman and feel completely transformed. 

“I was so excited to get to Muse of London near Oxford Street and get the day started with my treatments.” 

Jodie revealed her extreme beauty day out wasn’t a cheap one – and cost her £918. 

She splurged £400 on full body laser while paying out £110 for new eyelashes, £50 on cavitation body contouring, £100 on reapplying her hair extensions and much more. 

She also treated herself to a pedicure, gel nails, lash extensions, eyebrow threading, microdermabrasion, her roots, a blow dry and a Tigi SOS moisturising hair treatment. 

It may have been a pricey day out for Jodie, but the influencer lives by the motto of ‘you only have one life so you may as well do it looking your best’.

But she also added that she always spends within her means. 

I didn’t let myself go during lockdown as I tried my best to do DIY hair and beauty treatments but of course nothing is as good as the real thing.

Jodie said: “I had to have the full works; I needed my nails done as they were looking tragic and the root touch up as I was looking slightly like a badger with my natural dark brown roots.

“My extensions were hanging quite low down in my head and were uneven because I attempted to do them myself about 6 weeks ago. 

“I needed a hair repair treatment because I’ve been out of the salon for so long and a blow dry to finish off the vibes.

“Then I needed a new set of Russian volume lash extensions and I have never tried microdermabrasion before so I thought why not?! Let’s add that in as well!” 

Full list of Jodie’s treatments:

  • Full body laser – £400
  • Cavitation body contouring – £50 
  • Pedicure – £49
  • Gel nails – £25
  • Root touch up – £50
  • Extensions reapplied – £100
  • Blow dry – £40
  • Tigi SOS treatment – £19
  • Microdermabrasion – £60
  • Full set Lashes – £110
  • Eyebrow threading – £15

TOTAL =  £918

The model proudly revealed that she felt ‘great’ after her extreme 10-hour pamper session and now feels like ‘Jodie 2.0 emerging out of the lockdown with full glam.’ 

She decided to go ‘all out’ with treatments to celebrate the big day and said the whole country has been stuck in ‘Groundhog Day’ for months. 

However the star also added that Covid is unpredictable and the thought of another lockdown in the near future encouraged her to ‘not waste any time’ and book her treatments. 

She said: “We just don’t know if we will go into another lockdown in a month or so, so I thought let me not waste any time and get right in there Monday morning. 


“I had a break to do my radio show in the afternoon then I headed straight back into the salon in the evening to get some more treatments done. 

“I tried microdermabrasion for the first time ever which was quite different! 

“I have sensitive skin so am not a huge fan of facials, however I found the stress of the last lockdown had caused me to break out a lot more than normal 

“I also went a different shade of blonde to my usual one, selecting more of an icy tone because I thought I’d dare to be bold.”

Jodie is thrilled to be back to visiting the salon regularly and getting back into her usual beauty routines. 

She’s going to get back into having weekly blow dries and fortnightly gel nails. 

The influencer will also go back to having regular pedicures, monthly root touch ups on her hair and extension reapplication. 

She said: “I’m very happy that salons have reopened. It’s been tough on the hair and beauty industry having been closed for around 8 months in the past year and in some parts of the UK they have been closed even longer.

“So I am very happy to be back in the hairdresser’s chair with a glass of prosecco in hand!”
