5 New Beauty Destinations Worth A Visit
For Aesthetics & Holistic Beauty…
Head To: Dr Sebagh at Chandos House, Marylebone
Dr Jean-Louis Sebagh is the aesthetic doctor and anti-ageing expert that industry insiders and supermodels swear by. His bestselling skincare brand is known to yield instant results, thanks to science-backed formulas that are proven to work. Now, he’s expanding with a new clinic at Chandos House in Marylebone. At this location, you’ll find nine treatment rooms where you can book everything from cosmetic medical procedures to holistic beauty treatments and HydraFacials. You can also shop the skincare range on site.
What To Try: There’s plenty on offer but we recommend the fruit enzyme peel for anyone who wants to boost their glow. It’s highly effective, whisking away dead skin cells for better luminosity and more even skin tone. Despite the potency, it’s incredibly gentle – so much so, it’s safe to book during pregnancy. Plus, there’s little to no downtime compared to similar treatments.
For Hair Cuts & Colour…
Head To: Buller & Rice
Buller & Rice has expanded with this latest opening in Wanstead. Known for being accessible all over London, it’s the design-led, sustainable salon to know. Founded by Anita Rice and Stephen Buller, you can expect the very best cuts and colour treatments, with high-end eco brands that are kind to your hair and the environment. We love the salon’s aesthetic – think light and bright with a relaxed feel that instantly puts you at ease. Extra points go to the refill service, as well as the reusable foils made from recycled paper. You’ll also find a curated selection of homeware products in the Wanstead salon and seaweed-based skincare from Haeckels – not to mention biodynamic wines if you fancy trying something new.
Who To See: All the hairstylists at Buller & Rice are trained to the highest standard, so you can trust you’re in safe hands. We do, however, recommend booking in with Anita for any major colour or cut transformations. Don’t miss out on the blow-dries either – at £35, they’re competitively priced and the results are flawless.
For Beauty Shopping…
Head To: Oh My Cream
Founded by Juliette Levy, Oh My Cream is the French beauty store we’ve been waiting for. It’s finally landed in the UK with not one, but two sites: Westbourne Grove and King’s Road in Chelsea. Bringing cutting-edge formulas and natural beauty brands together under one roof, alongside in-house experts who can offer unbiased, genuine advice based on your needs and requirements, Oh My Cream has been hugely popular in France – where it has 22 stores – so we expect it to be a big hit here, too. The aesthetic will have you at hello, and then there is the expertly curated selection of products. Don’t miss the chance to have a free in-store skin diagnostics consultation, and make sure you investigate the bespoke treatments and infrared sauna.
What To Shop: There’s so much on offer – from Sunday Riley classics to Augustinus Bader and Tata Harper. However, it’s worth checking out the Oh My Cream line-up – particularly its Gentle Exfoliating Powder – as well as niche brands like Herbivore, Combeau and Solaris NY.
For Skin Treatments…
Head To: Salon C Stellar
Known for her glow-giving treatments, Andrea Pfeffer is the brains behind the new Salon C Stellar clinic. Expect to find a holistic space that offers high-tech treatments for skin, body and mind. Every treatment is personalised, with the belief that we all benefit from different ingredients, massage techniques and products. An example of this is ‘The Best Facial’ which sees an experienced therapist design a treatment for you on the spot. They will cater to your needs using the rights tools and choose skincare to boost, nourish and soothe. The treatment also combines a deep cleanse with facial reflexology and acupuncture should it be needed. One thing is for certain, you’ll see results immediately.
What To Try: While the skincare treatments stand out, we recommend booking ‘The Best Massage’. Focusing on lymphatic drainage, the treatment explores the benefits of cupping, focusing on specific areas to release tension and muscle soreness within the body. Trust us, you’ll feel so much lighter and calmer post-treatment.
For Top Manis & Pedis…
Head To: Townhouse
Launched in 2018 by Juanita Huber-Millet, Townhouse has recently expanded into four new locations: Spitalfields, Covent Garden, Ladbroke Grove and now Mayfair, as part of the Elemis Speed Spa. Aiming to become more accessible, it’s the nail bar that offers an elevated experience without the hefty price tag. The perfect place to go with friends, you’ll always get impeccable service set within an elegant environment – there are drinks available too, alongside an extensive shade menu and plenty of fun nail art options.
What To Book: If you’re tight for time, book in for an express manicure. Quick enough to have during your lunchbreak, but without scrimping on any of the luxury, it costs just £28.
