The Best Beauty Salons and Spas in London for All Your Treatment Needs

New year, new you.

Finding the right beauty salons for hair, skin and nail treatments can be an arduous task for several reasons. There’s a huge level of trust involved in trying somewhere new, and more often than not, the buzziest spots can be booked up for months in advance. What’s more,  much like restaurants and bars, the majority of popular parlors have specialities or treatments that they’re known for, and it’s hard to know which spot is the best for what.

But that’s where we come in. Whether it’s chrome nail art and hydra-facials or brow-bleaching and ear piercing that you’re after, there’s likely to be a place in London that does it best. To help you make the right decision, we’ve rounded up our favorite tried-and-tested locations for all your treatment needs, this year and next.

Scroll down to find out more about our favorite beauty spots across the city.

So.Shell

One of the pioneers of the Ukrainian manicure, So.Shell is conveniently located in London’s Soho and offers a range of nail, brow and lash treatments alongside newly launched hair services. The meticulous Ukrainian manicure promises to last more than your average gel mani and boasts a unique dry brushing technique that stands the test of time.

Easily the most aesthetically pleasing salon in all the land, Crab Salad has not one, but two locations in London, each with their own distinctive color scheme. North London’s Highbury boasts a vibrant shade of mint green, while the South East London salon in Peckham keeps it pretty in pink. Complete with high quality colorists and hair experts, the salon is the perfect place for all your new year, new me transformations.

Pomme Pe’Dour

One of West London’s coolest nail salons, Pomme Pe’Dour offers a wide array of nail treatments including acrylics and manicures. Its signature treatment, however, is nail art, offering a varied selection of vibrant designs, from flames and chrome to 3D gel and gems. It’s undoubtedly the place to visit before special occasions.

Aire Ancient Baths

For a New Year pick-me-up, look no further. The underground oasis that is Aire Ancient Baths offers a range of relaxing experiences including ice baths, thermal baths and massage treatments. Alongside its London location, the baths are available to visit in Copenhagen, Spain and the United States.

With its flagship located in Marylebone, the newly-opened Hershesons is the ultimate definition of a one-stop shop. Featuring a Dryby nail salon, skincare treatment rooms (featuring treatments from Murad and Sunday Riley) and a Farm Girl cafe alongside its signature hair salon, the Central London location is probably the easiest place to get pretty much anything you want done — and still have time for a lavender latte afterwards.

Bam Brows
