FASHION: GIVE YOUR FEET A SUMMER TREAT
Wednesday 05 May 1999
Mmmm delicious... Aveda Pedicure Deluxe at Harvey Nichols in London (0171- 584 0011) and in Leeds (0113-236 0077). How about sitting on a vibrating throne which massages your back, while a fully qualified therapist gives you a three step pedicure. 1) a sea-salt foot jacuzzi, 2) a polish (to remove all yucky hard bits), 3) a reflexology foot-massage. Be prepared to sip fruit juices and champagne while the ultimate pampering service takes place.
