Vesna is first of all a first name, that of the creator of the place. But it is also a name: that of her beauty institute, in the Marais, which, in a decade, has become a reference in Paris. A beautician for twenty-five years, Vesna opened this brand in 2010 where she practices, with a tight team, manicures, pedicures, facial treatments, hair removal for women and men.

Celebrities come to her house discreetly and the women's press sings her praises. “Vesna, the hostess, knows that her clients’ time is precious; she therefore organizes herself so that we can do everything in an hour with impeccable quality,” writes Elle, for example.

The magazine adds: “It’s the Rolls Royce of the mani-pedi. As proof, the numerous stages of the pedicure with, among others, Patyka exfoliation, application of a mask with a brush and deep cream massage.

When it comes to applying the varnish, it's down to the millimeter, with Japanese precision. We come out with very shiny nails and a nail polish that lasts. » Let us add that the “Nail bar” offers 500 colors of varnish from the brands OPI, Essie, 1944 Paris, etc.

As demanding for herself as for her clients, Vesna, who is of Croatian origin, wants her clients to always be impeccable by acquiring good practices and diligent care.

Because, yes, beauty is also work. Which has its price. Half-leg hair removal costs 25 euros. The Vesna manicure with semi-permanent varnish costs 80 euros (for 45 minutes).

The facial treatment, at 105 euros per hour, includes a steam bath and purifying mask with SkinCeuticals products, known for its antioxidants. Here every gesture is executed with care.

At Vesna – who also practices kobido, an ancestral facial massage from Japan with an incredible lifting effect – beauty is a work of art.

With the summer holidays approaching, what could be better than a few swimming sessions to shape a summer body? Unfortunately, the Marais only has one swimming pool on its territory, that of Saint-Merri, opposite Beaubourg (4th). Fortunately, two pools are not far away…

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.
