About Be Exquisite; Health and Beauty in Leicester

Akila Mandhu

About Us - Akila MandhuAfter 15 years of studying beauty and how it can relate to the way we feel, I realised there was a gap in the local market and in 1998 opened my first therapy clinic.

In 2002 I opened my own salon in Brisbane, Australia, where I gained further knowledge and experienced new and innovative techniques in skin care.

I know the importance of trust between therapist and client, and use my skills and expertise to aid and enhance the beauty routine of my clients.

The results are truly amazing and on this basis I have built my reputation.

I truly love health and beauty and can’t wait to see you in my therapy clinic. Please get in touch to book an appointment.

Danuta Rojek

“Akila is so professional and warm, you feel instantly at ease and the standard of treatments are very high. I’ve been coming here regularly for over 3 years and wouldn’t go anywhere else! There are many different treatments to choose from; the facials are amazing and the wax treatments are the best I have ever had. Love the new refurbished rooms!”
Esther Pritt

“Very nervous going into the salon, did not know what to expect however Akila’s warm and welcoming personality made me feel very comfortable. She carefully explained, in detail about how the wax she uses is different to others. My skin is very sensitive so I found that the wax she uses suited me very well. I highly recommend Be Exquisite and will definitely be returning for a second treatment. Thank you!”

Kelsee Richard’s

“I booked a hydra facial for my daughter and myself. Akila talked us through the procedure with lots of detail. She also advised us about what our particular skin type needed. The whole experience was amazing, so relaxing and our skin felt so good. A professional lady who goes that extra mile.”
Pritti Patel

“A fabulous facial treatment by Akila. From the moment you step into her calming and comfortable treatment room Akila is friendly and attentive. Her knowledge base of the products are second to none and she always advises you on what’s best for your skin. She explains every step of the treatment clearly and concisely and offers tips for maintaining the effect at home. It’s always a pleasure to visit Akila.”
Lizzie Rockman

“One of a kind
I could not recommend Akila’s treatments enough. I have booked hydra facial which was an amazing experience and she explained every step of the treatment. She also helped me create a skincare routine and I have been following it since my first treatment and it has really changed my skin. Before I had bad acne with dry skin but it’s all gone now and my skin feels so hydrated. She definitely will go the extra mile to advise a routine according to your needs and possibilities and if you are ready to listen am I sure your skin will be flawless very soon. I wish I would have visited her sooner.”

Kamilla Murakozi

“Akila is super nice and welcoming ! She genuinely understands and care for your skin problems and tries to find the suitable facial for your situation. She is well knowledgeable in her job and makes you feel very comfortable- you will see your money’s worth
Be exquisite is definitely my go to facial spot from now onwards!”

Wawa Wawa

“I had a fantastic brightening facial treatment. Loved the results! I will definitely be booking again very soon. Akila paid attention to my skincare needs and used the correct products personalised to my skin requirements. She also explained the procedures during the treatment so I was able to understand what was going on. My skin feels new and great! Really happy with my treatment. Thank you once again!”
Kamini Patel

“I chose a package using the Dermalogica products and spent an entire afternoon in pure bliss. Akila looked after me extremely well and the whole experience was wonderful. I have no hesitation in recommending the services offered and would urge anyone looking for a treat for themselves or gift for a loved one to visit Be Exquisite.”

“My own personal skincare regime is thorough and something I really care about. I have years of experience of beauty clinics. It was with some trepidation therefore that I first went to visit Be Exquisite. I was soon to realise that my fears were completely unfounded. I decided to have a luxury pedicure as my introduction to the salon.”

“Akila has always shown me courtesy and kindness whenever I have wanted to see her. I find her premises very convenient and no hassle to get to. I enjoy my manicures and shellac nails and she uniquely has a heated water bed that is very relaxing. She specialises in Brazilian waxing and her knack and passion for proper ways of doing things means no pain ladies and so I have become a regular customer of Akila at Be Exquisite.”

“For many years I have suffered from excess hair growth under my chin and on my neck. I tried most treatments available both at home and in the salon but none gave lasting results. A friend recommended Akila at Be Exquisite to me due to her professionalism and dedication at helping clients achieve their individual requirements. She discussed the electrolysis process with me at an initial meeting and guided me through it step by step. Akila explained that I would need to dedicate myself to the process, which involved weekly treatments. The result, I am thrilled to say, has been a significant reduction in hair growth and the majority of my hair has been permanently removed. In addition, the quality of service Akila provides, goes way beyond what you pay for. She truly knows what she is talking about and develops kind, caring relationships with her clients. I totally recommend Akila to whoever wants permanent hair removal.”

“Wow, what an experience! I was asked to choose between a stress relief or energising pedicure and I chose the latter, having somehow mislaid my natural energy somewhere between the poor Easter weather and the election campaign! My feet were treated to a soothing soak in mineral infused warm water. Akila explained everything she was doing as we went along and so the treatment began. My feet were exfoliated, massaged and pampered and all this took place on a heated waterbed – what a treat! Finally, I chose a red hot colour for my nails and off I went, feeling totally energised and rejuvenated. And yes, I will definitely be trying some of the other marvellous treatments, safe in the knowledge that I’ll be in expert hands.”

“After having had many bad experiences with waxing since moving to Leicester 5 years ago, I finally found ‘Be Exquisite’ on the internet and called to book an appointment that day. The whole experience was fantastic. Not only is Akila welcoming but she puts you at ease straight away. The waxing result is absolutely brilliant – it’s no surprise I keep on coming back. I have not found anyone who does a better job.”
