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 done. And it is truly rare to find such a diverse team of specialists under one roof.
While all of the salon’s treatments are equally good, 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, but make sure to ask for a pro manicurist when making a reservation.

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 non-surgical 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.

Studio M is arguably one of the most Instagrammable salons in Vilnius. The beauty hub is so chic that it feels more like a luxurious apartment that you really, really don’t want to leave.
So if you’re looking for a professional glam squad that can handle even the fanciest of occasions on your calendar, this is your salon. Frankly, I doubt I’ve ever come across a negative comment about this place.

Another female temple in Vilnius is Studio Glow. Let’s not underestimate how good professionally done lashes and eyebrows look, and it’s the salon’s forte. While you’re there, don’t miss out on a make-up session. It’s a must-book for a weekend look or for anyone who has a special occasion.
Address: A.Smetonos g. 7A-27 LT-01115 Vilnius, Lithuania
Even though the name has lashes it in, I go there for manicures. My newly-discovered nail fairy Miglė, who works at the salon, is responsible for some of my most impeccable manicures. The best part? The salon is rarely overcrowded, and the service is always on point.
As Audrey Hepburn once said, “I believe in manicures… I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls”. Couldn’t agree more. There’s just something about polished-looking nails that makes you feel instantly pulled together.

Mad Beauty Squad

So if you want to get your locks dipped in some of the brightest shades, then these colour wizards are here to help. How? True magicians never reveal their secrets.

No surprise that the salon prides itself on its highly professional staff and loyal customer base. Returning clients year after year is the only testimonial you’ll need.
