Our Story So Far

Pre- is a concept that founder Mimi Gaston-Kennedy landed on after years in the beauty industry. As well as being a skincare fanatic, Mimi’s 360 view of the sector led her to delve into the business of salons and the progress that could be made. “Thanks to my role in beauty PR, my friends would always ask me the best spots
to get their nails, facials and waxing done. There were always good one-off locations for singular treatments, but nowhere that delivered the highest demand treatments, to a great level, under one roof” says Mimi.

“Somewhere affordable and efficient, where you could go and get your treatments done like clockwork, along with perks like consistent service across treatments and technicians, clean, hygienic spaces, plus a touch of feel-good too. The Pre- offering has been designed to make you feel your best, affordably and conveniently.”

At Pre-, each treatment is delivered using handpicked high performance products:

- Facials customised to your skin's needs, using cosmeceutical products by Medik8, enhanced by a variety of established and cutting-edge modalities: Cryo Ball Sculpting — LED Light Therapy — Facial Cupping Contour Sculpting — Diamond-tip Microdermabrasion — Gua Sha — Hydrafacial — Oxygen Blast Technology, from £55
- Nails using cruelty-free, 5-free gel from The Gel Bottle and 12-free polish from Nailberry, plus cleaner-than-clean tools, from £20. Boost your treatment with an add-on including extended massage, exfoliating scrub, Mavex callus treatment and our signature nail art􏰀
- Waxing using luxurious Italian Italwax for a virtually pain-free wax, from £5.
