Vera is one of the most respected professional hair and make-up artists in Marbella and the Costa del Sol Vera has established her level of expertise and creativity since 1993. Starting her career in Helsinki, Vera gained her expertise in the fine structure of Scandinavian hair, which is a little more delicate and requires a little extra attention. Moving onto work in one of London’s top salons gaining many skills along the way including the different techniques in hair extensions, Vera then headed for a sunnier climate and Marbella became her home. Vera has been living and working in Marbella since 2000 and proudly opened her own salon in the spring of 2015. Vera is keen to stay up to date with the latest fashion trends and developments in hair technology so she enjoys doing regular courses here in Spain and internationally. Her passion is in technical work, she loves colouring hair as it is amazing how just a little change in shade can make your skin tone more flattering or make your eyes brighter. Living in Marbella you need a little outside inspiration to stay on top of your business so Vera enjoys travelling to see what the rest of the world has to offer.

There is so many new things in nails at the moment – there’s all these new powders, gels, extensions and keratin to strengthen nails. Dali is one of the most versatile and sought after nail technicians on the coast and we are lucky enough to have her here at Salon La Vida.
I would say nail gel and acrylics are definitely the most popular on the market at the moment and these can be extended and look very natural whilst adding a touch of glam.
However, a lot of people like natural nails so what is really popular is the Keratin Treatment for nails to enhance your own nail and you can have beautiful, shiny nails – we can also use it as a basecoat for gels and acrylics too. It lasts 3 weeks, roughly the same time as a manicure.
The best brand on the market (which so happens to be the one we stock at Salon La Vida!) is LCN Natural Nail Boost Gel. As far as we are aware we are the only salon in Marbella to offer this treatment.
We are also actively promoting a 123 at homecare range here at the salon.



The most popular colour at the moment is a light pink or baby pink. It comes with or without sparkle. Pastels are big this summer so if pink is not your thing a blue or lilac can look amazing.

Neon is also big this Summer and can really make an impact for a big night out especially if you are wearing a plain black or white dress. In a club you will glow under the UV lights too. Wow.

A Keratin treatment is a new product on the market designed to repair weakened or damaged nails. The treatment with jojoba oil and almond oil carries keratin proteins which bond to the natural nail to help strengthen while restoring moisture.

Vera is a trained hairdresser with 23 years experience and 9 years here on the coast. “We are not a high street salon we like the personal touch and being individual to all our clients. Get in touch today for all your hair, beauty and nail needs.”
