Welcome to our haven from the outside world where you can be pampered and leave your worries behind.

We want you to leave Orchard House feeling relaxed, satisfied and most importantly happy with your treatments.
Our beauty salon has been based and operating within Ruddington at different locations for over 20 years. Every time we have moved we have improved both the salon surroundings and our services. We are currently located on Kempson Street, just up from the Conservative Club where you can see our signs. We are a detached building with 3 large treatment rooms upstairs, one being a spray tanning room as well as a client WC and shower facility. Downstairs we have our 4th treatment room, ideal for people who struggle with the stairs. We also have a large reception room which accommodates our vertical sunbed as well as 2 of our manicure stations.
Kempson Street is a private road so we own the full length of the building providing 3 FREE car parking spaces; a real advantage in Ruddington. We are proud that our business is still operating after all these years. We must be doing something right, we certainly hope so. We are a happy, friendly, dedicated team and we hope to see clients old and new very soon.
A LEADING BEAUTY SALON
We are the only salon in the Midlands that offers Nora Bode Oxyjet facials. This treatment is great for the reduction of lines and wrinkles, rejuvenating & brightening the skin with Oxygen and Collagen. It is a 'Must Have ' treatment; you are also in good company - Madonna , Jennifer Aniston and our own Lorraine Kelly all use this treatment. We also have a 3-in-1 Microdermabrasion machine.
We are launching our Outback Organics intimate waxing range. It is an intimate system which is tough on hairs whilst being gentle on skin. We have had great some great initial feedback with people saying it is less painful than conventional waxing. This system is used in some of the top salons including Harrods.
We've decided to introduce a few new treatments this year including 'Lash lift and colour'. It is an amazing treatment that curls your natural lashes from the root and colours your lashes with a semi-permanent colour . The colour will last for approximately 4 weeks, the lash lift about 8 weeks.
STATE OF THE ART EQUIPMENT
To make the process of scheduling appointments easier for you we have installed a computerised EPOS booking system. With this modern system, you get an automatic reminder 48 hours prior to your appointment. This has proved to be a huge asset to the Salon, the EPOS was gradually installed and introduced throughout the Spring and Summer of 2016/2017. We can use the system for text and email shots so you will be the first to hear of any special offers we have that may suit you. Plus, if you forgot your diary at the time of booking our text reminder will be invaluable.
Our skill and passion lies within beauty and not IT so unfortunately we had some teething problems with this system but please bare with us we are trying our best and know that in the end the Epos will prove to be a valuable tool for both staff and clients.
Aside from this, we have just recently updated all of our tools and equipment, including trolleys, pots and towels. You will surely have a more comfortable and relaxing experience here with us.
