The best beauty salons to visit this Christmas
If there’s ever a time to treat yourself to some favourite beauty treatments, then it’s the festive season! There’s no better way to indulge than with a well-earned pampering session at one of London’s top salons. With so much choice on the market, we’ve rounded up the best beauty parlours worth visiting for your treatments this Christmas.
Tucked away from the bustle of London’s Oxford Street, award-winning hair stylist Sam Burnett’s salon speaks for itself. Burnett boasts a CV with styling credits for high profile clients such as Dua Lipa, Laura Whitmore and Jessie J, therefore it’s no surprise that the launch of his own parlour has been met with such acclaim. With locations in Fitzrovia and Esher, the establishments pay homage to his roots, heavily influenced by contemporary and minimalist British heritage.
As a fashion-focused and trend-conscious business, Hare & Bone prides itself on technical excellence and creative flair. Every member of their team is trained to the highest standards in all aspects of colouring and it’s with this knowledge they can bring your vision to life.
When it comes to effortlessly cool blondes, Master Stylist Jose documents his dreamy colour transformations on the salon’s Instagram, as well as his own. Seamless balayage, stretch highlights and foilyage are his speciality, giving his clients a chic, lived-in colour. He tailors his techniques to fit individual needs and is a firm believer of “less is more” when it comes to creating multi-dimensional colour. To create the right gradient and blend to suit your skin tone he recommends a toner every few months to keep any brassiness at bay and believes this step is just as important as the hair dye itself.
One of Hare & Bone’s biggest selling points is their transparency when it comes to pricing. The employees offer a bespoke experience, talking you through every option and treatment and working with you to ensure the best service for your budget. If you’re looking for a festive revamp just in time for Christmas, then look no further than Hare & Bone. Book online for your appointment and enjoy a free consultation with one of their expert stylists.
Brow Bar London offers an extensive range of transformational beauty treatments from its enviable location in Eccleston Yards, but like the clue in the name, their forte lies firmly with gorgeous brows and lashes.
Offering any treatment you can think of, including lamination, threading and waxing, there’s something to suit everyone. While the salon may be known for giving clients desirable brows, their lash lifts are something to behold, too. The professional technicians lift and tint client’s natural lashes from root to tip to give a gorgeous volume that lasts for well over eight weeks – far longer than any lash lift we’ve ever had. With party season right around the corner, what more could you ask for?

Loved by A-listers everywhere, the treatment combines six of the most effective approaches including lymphatic drainage, exfoliation, GlySal peel, extractions, infusions of antioxidations to restore plumpness to the skin before finishing with LED light to help with acne and pigmentation. With this treatment, glowing skin is a given.
