When it comes to hair colour, Linnaean is ahead of the curve. Their international team of staff boast a wealth of experience and expertise, leaving you to sit back and relax knowing you’re in safe hands. They offer all contemporary colour techniques, straightening systems, perming, extension services, as well as classic hairstyling for men and women. They’ve recently launched ORIBE Renewal Remedies too, an exciting treatment designed to transform the health of your hair from root to tip.
All colour appointments begin with a patch test and complimentary colour consultation. Here, you will have the opportunity to explore a range of visual images to find something bespoke to you, your complexion and hair type. They’ve even developed their very own Baylights colour collection, a technique combining classic highlights with the recently popular balayage. We tried out their trend-setting technique and it certainly did not disappoint! Taking inspiration from current trends, the salon seamlessly blends the two techniques to create a hybrid look that’s both gorgeous and low maintenance.
Linnaean is so much more than a luxury hair salon, though. There’s a whole host of cutting-edge beauty treatments available, a medi-spa upstairs and a gorgeous café offering a delicious seasonal plant-rich menu. Linnaean stays true to their ethos of nourishing from the inside, making this destination your one-stop shop for wellness. Be warned, once you step foot inside, you won’t want to leave.
If you’re looking for the science behind your facial, then you need to try a treatment from skincare legend, Debbie Thomas. The facials here combine hi-tech laser treatments with more traditional methods to give a multi-layered approach for optimum results.
All their skin specialists work to immediately understand any concerns, helping you to tailor your skincare routine to get the maximum out of your skin. There’s no need for unnecessary gimmicks or fancy products without substance here.
One of their most popular treatments comes in the form of BYONIK laser technology, which has been developed in conjunction with NASA scientists to effectively reverse the signs of ageing at a cellular level. The pain-free BYONIK laser boosts collagen, detoxifies the skin and creates an anti-inflammatory response within the surrounding tissue. Your pulse is even monitored with an oximeter to allow the laser to release in time with each heartbeat for maximum absorption of nutrients into the skin cells.
Each treatment is tailored to suit your individual skin needs, and there’s no downtime either, which means this facial is perfect if you’ve got a big event coming up or just want your skin to look instantly plumped and glowy.
