Lively salon mecca that is split on multiple levels: there is a hair area, nail area upstairs, body treatments on yet another floor. Bright, charged with energy, this is a fun place to get worked on. This is the quintessential beauty salon experience, with hair dryers whirring and happy customers on their way to enhanced beauty.
GO HERE WITH
Yourself, girlfriends, male friends, bridal party–all these circumstances would work perfectly here.
WHY WE LIKE IT
The skilled technicians have a great clean-yet-chic aesthetic and a fun manner–they make the beautifying process quite enjoyable. Also, the location within Harrods is extremely convenient. (Pop downstairs to grab some delicious nosh in the Food Halls afterward!)
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Not much to change, other than adding some quieter corners in case you’re not up for all the activity.
GOOD TO KNOW
They carry OPI nail colors as well as Leighton Denny, a popular UK brand. Near the reception, there’s a beauty boutique which carries everything from cosmetics to skin care products to hair supplies (brands include Kerastase, Dr. Murad, La Prairie, Crème de la Mer, and Dermalogica), along with a photo studio, a body clinic, and a parfumerie.
