Our favourite luxury beauty, health & wellness locations in London to visit before the summer.
The sun is finally shining, the beer gardens have awoken from their slumber and day-drinking is about to become your favourite weekend hobby again. But after a rather harsh and cold winter, you’re probably not feeling your best. Fear not, we’ve compiled a list of the best spots in London to help you glow-up in time for the summer months.
STIL Salon - Chelsea
With two locations in the equally stunning settings of Notting Hill and Chelsea, STIL Salon is a must visit if you’re in need of some hair TLC after a winter of exposure to the harsh elements. Founded by Swedish award-winning colourist Christel Barron-Hough, STIL isn’t your typical run-of-the-mill salon.
A huge part of their service is personalising your treatment, cut & colour to create a final look that is most suited to you. If you’re seeking to transform your look, the team will perform a colour analysis, comprehending factors such as your skin tone and complexion, eye colour, and style to make sure they’re creating a bespoke final look that, most importantly, suits and accentuates your natural features.
A chic scandi salon, and one of our favourites in London, this is the perfect spot to begin your summer glow up. Book your appointment here.
