British supermarket chain Tesco is getting into the beauty treatment business.
The store has begun to trial nail bars, eyebrow threading, waxing and hair styling and coloring at a handful of units outside London and near Manchester, England.
There are no appointments necessary, and the units will also be stocking products such as the Redken and Tigi Bed Head hair care ranges.
“We recognize the beauty market is a huge opportunity, and we know there is a lot more we can be offering our customers,” said Andrew Carpenter, beauty category manager at Tesco. “We are only at the testing stage, and keen to understand how our customers receive the service in these stores.”
Prices will range from 10 pounds, or $16, for a half-leg wax to 20 pounds, or $32, for a cut and blow dry. All figures have been calculated at current exchange rates.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
