Sorry, guys, but this post is dedicated to our lovely female audience. To those ladies who are pit stopping in the capital for longer periods or for those of you who have moved here permanently, you might be wondering, what are the best beauty salons in Vilnius, where to find information in English and what type of treatments are available.
While collecting my own recommendations as well as suggestions made by others, what was to be a simple write-up snowballed into an insider’s guide to discovering the top beauty hotspots in Vilnius.
So whether you want a blow-dry or a quick trim, a full-on evening makeup, a manicure or a skin care procedure, here’s a roundup of some of the top beauty salons in Vilnius. And for those on a tight budget, we finish this entry with a tip on how to find a beautician to match both your needs and wallet.
Let me tell you, no one looks forward to getting waxed, but City Wax is a game changer. Located on Gediminas Avenue, the salon is the ultimate spot for getting your waxing and nails done. It is truly rare to find a team who pays such exceptional attention to every detail as they do at City Wax.
While all of the salon’s treatments are equally splendid, it’s the beautifully-named pedicures like Grafaitė that you simply can’t miss out on. And their manicures include some of the most intricate designs out there.

When I used to mention various skin issues I had, GK clinic came up as highly regarded on more than several occasions. The place provides innovative surgical and nonsurgical procedures in a more clinical environment in comparison to other venues.
Even though it can be ranked on the more expensive side of our list, in return, you can be safe in the knowledge that you’ll receive top-quality services. From plastic surgery to laser procedures, you’ll be in meticulous and experienced hands, whatever you choose.
