It is Sophia's 8th birthday

Please come along on Wednesday 4th November and have a glass of bucks fizz and some birthday cake.

To say thank you to everyone we would like to offer a month's gym membership for 20.00 euros for all memberships paid on our birthday.

Ovie will be offering a free body pump class to everyone. Anna Bedford will be here to offer free samples and advice on the popular Aloe Vera Product Forever Young.

On behalf of Sophia's both Phill and I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to everyone for the support given to us over the last 8 years.

We are incredibly proud of all the team that work at Sophias and would not have lasted this long without their support and dedication to the business but more importantly the kindness and professionalism and fun they have with our clients.

Both Melanie Smith (above) our Hair Stylist and Michele Dixon (left) our toning table and rehabilitation specialist have worked at Sophia's since it opened.




Ombré is a French word that literally means "shaded like a gradient". Roots remain dark while the rest of the hair becomes lighter mid-shaft using a balayage technique.

Ombre remains one of the hottest hair colour trends not only because it has so many different options, but because it can be ridiculously low maintenance. The variety of this trend can be seen in every magazine and on nearly every runway. Go bold, soft, colourful or natural with endless colour choices. Ombre hair colours are a great way to rock a low maintenance look that doesn't sacrifice style!


Melanie has created the Ombre Style on Nicki, see the results on the left.

If you would like an appointment or free consultation with Melanie to discuss Ombre for yourself, then please ring or email us.

Clients Stories

My Experience Since Walking Into Sophia's

My name is Helen; I walked into Sophia's on November 11th 2011 and at that time I had very little confidence and low self-esteem. I was overweight and I had never done any exercise except some swimming.

So my journey began.

After a few free trials, I joined the toning tables for a year I did not understand how it would affect different parts of my body especially the core.

After 9 months I asked Michelle if she could start training me one to one. At first I really didn't have the confidence that I would be any good at it, but with all her patience and all the help she gave me. I gradually came to understand it.

I have now been doing this for three years. During this period my mind set has changed a lot. I am now able to do things that I would never have thought possible. I know that this is due to her patience and encouragement and her time which I really appreciate.

I have lost a lot of weight, which is due to a lot of exercise and change of diet.

My special thanks to Michelle, Paula and her team for all their help during the four years. I would recommend anyone to do what I have done. You will be surprised what you will be able to achieve.


Laser Hair Removal

I would like to say how professional and courteous the laser hair removal ladies are. I am so fed up with shaving my legs every day and thought I would give it a try. I am surprised it only took 10 minutes and I expected it to be painful both the treatment and the price. It was cheaper than I had expected. I paid 40.00 euros and know in the UK it is about £80.00. I didn't feel a thing. I have had 4 sessions now and don't need to shave ever again. This is money well spent and time saved and the embarrassment of hairy legs a thing of the past. I would recommend this to all the ladies, I wish I had done it years ago. I will recommend this to my friends and will book in for my top lip next time they are with you.
