We know many of you are looking forward to getting away this year, whether you’re heading on a beach holiday, city break or staycation!
And if you want to make planning for your holiday less stressful, these are the places in Harborne that cover all your prepping!
Hair and beauty
Feel amazing on your break with some of the best salons in Harborne! Bellissimos is one of the newest additions to the High Street – and they’re currently offering 20% off for new clients! Some of their services include hair, spray tanning, waxing, brows, lashes and nails.
Another of our favourites is OK Cure Me, and their fun and unique nail designs will definitely stand out this summer. You can also get your brows and lashes done during your visit.
If you want to fake it before you make it (to your destination), why not get your bronzed look ready with a spray tan at Jennifer’s Spa and Beauty?
Gentlemen’s Retreat of Harborne is a great option for the men, and you can even have a drink during a late afternoon appointment to get you into the holiday spirit!
Your wardrobe may not look holiday ready after the past couple of years – but fear not, we have the likes of Sophie Bea, Em & N Boutique, Resonate Menswear and Oliver Bonas here in Harborne!
And if you want to treat yourself to accessories to complement what’s going in your suitcase, Rudell the Jewellers and Silver & Love are the places to go!
We all know the importance of staying safe in the sun – and Bainbridge Bespoke Opticians can sort you out with prescription sunnies. They even have sustainable options made from recycled materials!
Hats are also an essential for sun protection, so buy yours from one of the clothes shops above, or even check out the charity shops for a bargain!
Save the hassle of getting your sunscreen in the airport with Boots, Superdrug and Home Bargains – just don’t forget to get travel-sized if you’re heading away with hand luggage.
If you want to practise your swimming before heading into the sea, head to Harborne Pool & Fitness – a membership is perfect if you want to go more than twice a week!
They also have a great range of classes both in the gym and the pool to make you feel more confident in time for your holidays.
Want to keep the kids occupied on long car and plane journeys? Osborne’s Stationers have a great range of activity books that they’ll love, or borrow a new favourite from Harborne Library! And for the big kids, why not check out Oxfam Books for your travel and poolside reads?
A taste of holidays in Harborne
Not heading away this year, or your holiday seems far off right now? Luckily we’re spoiled for choice in Harborne when it comes to international cuisine, from the taste of Italy at The Proud Sicilian, Buonissimo and Tropea, Indian favourites like Umami and Mela, and Thai treats at Sabai Sabai and The Giggling Squid.
And for the days where the British weather rivals the Mediterranean, there’s plenty of outdoor spots to enjoy a refreshing drink, including The Plough, Hop Garden and Harborne Stores.
If you want to enjoy the green spaces in the area with a sunny picnic, get your picnic sets and finger food from M&S and Waitrose!
