Cucumba, based in Soho, is a perfect place for men or women to get their quick fix beauty treatments in a lunch break, before or after work. Tucked away in the middle of Poland Street, just off of Oxford Circus, it is a hip beauty bar with an air of relaxation.

Prices start from £9.50 depending if you want a 10 minute treatment or a 60 minute treatment so the salon is perfect for a quick fix or a longer more luxurious pamper day.

Cleverly, the salon have sorted their treatments so that they can be altered to "Top Up" or "Quick Fix" (10 minutes) "Pitstop" (20 minutes) "Cucumba" 30 minutes, "Cucumba Deluxe" 45 minutes or "Cumba Supa Dupa" 60 minutes.

The treatments range from anything from waxing to massage to nails and they are always the latest in new innovative beauty treatments adding to their "cool" reputation.

Also perfect for hen do's, corporate parties or just a day out with friends as they offer "Party Packages". These start at just £37.50 per person and their very handy website makes it easy to work out exactly what you can have for this amount depending on how long you want to be there for.

I popped in recently in between meetings after breaking a nail (I know, that really does sound like a typically girly thing to do). I had 30 minutes to spare and just wanted pretty nails so they fitted me in for a 20 minute "PitStop" manicure and I came out 20 minutes later as promised with shiny, tidy sparkling nails.

A word of warning though, this is no fluffy robe, steam and mosaic tiled spa. It's a friendly, relaxed venue where massages are conducted downstairs behind heavy curtains and where threading is briskly carried out whilst toes are drying at the very public pedicure station. Nevertheless, the results are impressive and each treatment works on the basis of customizing what you really need within that time slot on the day.

The staff are brilliantly friendly and it is a really cosy and comfortable salon, perfect for any occasion. Designed to appeal to busy London-dwellers on their lunch break or heading from the office to the cocktail bar, it's a refreshing and affordable way to get a spa hit without it eating into either your time or bank balance. Fast, efficient and fabulous prices—this is fast track pampering that everyone can benefit from.
