January is nearly over. It’s time to come out from that cocoon and emerge like a butterfly. At RED Glasgow, we’ve been taking a look at the best spots in our city that will have you weekend-ready in no time.
Start with the ‘do.
Where: James Dun’s House – Aveda Salon
James Dun’s House accompanies each hair appointment with a complementary head and shoulders massage. A very nice addition to your wash & cut and exactly what’s needed after a long, cold January. True to their ethos, the Aveda Salon goes the extra mile to ‘make each and every guest look & feel fantastic’.

Freshen up that Mani’
Where: Nailco Nail Bar
A brilliant New Year’s treat for the city, Nailco Nail Bar has recently opened on Hope Street. A luxury nail salon that offers chic and sophisticated nail styles at affordable prices. The salon has perfected the classic gel and acrylic manicure and also offers stunning, original nail art.
To begin with you’ll have a one and one chat with a nail technician to discuss design, colour and price. From there you can choose to go as extravagant or understated as you like. You’ll find it’s a captivating experience in itself just watching the tiny detail that goes into each design.
Nail art starts from £5 – Take a look at their impressive portfolio of nail art on Instagram.
Where: Instagram of course! But more specifically @DEUXMODE
Laura and Olivia are Glaswegian fashion bloggers and co-founders of DEUXMODE. Spending time in both their hometown and Sydney, the fashionable pair present to followers a daily dose of what’s hot on the high street.

Winter Wardrobe Essentials
Where: One Peace clothing
One Peace Clothing is an independent, men’s streetwear brand, with a vision that no run of garments is the same as the last. The current A/W collection includes: t-shirts, hoodies & joggers, jackets and headwear. Stylish, yet practical, the menswear brand will make a great addition to your winter wardrobe. Working towards crafting a unique experience, the fashion label plans to offer customers one-off bespoke garments in the near future.
Stocked in House of Fraser, Glasgow, make the most of their 50% sale on their A/W collection.
Where: La Lanterna
La Lanterna is a multi-award winning restaurant. Not only do the chefs serve up the finest Italian food Scotland has to offer, it is also very reasonably priced. Glasgow’s oldest, family-run, Italian restaurant draws in the crowds, taking the crown as the city’s famed celebrity hotspot and locals’ favourite.
RED’s recommendation is that you book a table for Valentine’s day and enjoy 3 courses for £29.95.
Time for Cocktails
Where: The Spiritualist
The Spiritualist is home to Scotland’s greatest bar gantry, presenting to guests a superb selection of spirits, liqueurs, cocktails, wines and craft beers. Our favourite is their signature drink: Cocktail in the Rocks. Served as an iced sphere, you’ll have a brilliant time breaking the ice and watching the liquor break free.
