Fitzrovia Health & Beauty
Agua Spa at the Sanderson
50 Berners Street, Fitzrovia, London
Entering this all-white spa inside the Sanderson feels a bit like walking through a cloud (there are giant, billowing curtains). Inside, there are Reiki adjustments and enzyme facials, custom massages and luxurious manicures. Best of all, you can book a one-on-one acupuncture, sound fork, and facial session with clean-beauty genius (and founder of one of our favorite brands) Annee de Mamiel. The rejuvenating treatment, which changes seasonally, includes a craniosacral massage, gua sha, and a custom herbal mix that is ground into a mask.

Dr. Maalouf is wonderful with children, unflappable, and gentle. A highly recommended doctor.

This may just be one of the best cuts you'll ever get in London, let alone your life. While George cuts, his sister—well-known in her own right—heads up color, and his mom stops by routinely with home-baked treats. The space feels more like a cozy living room than an antiseptic salon, as his favorite books line the shelves, art from his own collection dots the walls, and there's space to work at your laptop while your color sets. What's better, he offers healthy snacks along with “George's Marvelous Medicine,” a juice packed with hair-healthy nutrients.

Andrea Pfeffer’s passion for glowing, balanced skin led her to create this beautiful, intimate studio with a menu of novel, high-tech facials. They started a bit of a craze for collagen-supporting copper microneedling, but what really sets Pfeffer apart is that no matter how cutting-edge the treatment or how hard-core the extractions, needling, or vitamin infusion, there's an exquisitely relaxing facial massage built in to your session.
74 Mortimer St., Fitzrovia
Opened in July, DryBy is a blow dry and nail art studio that has, in a short span of time, become much more than a salon. In muted tones of grey and pink, it's a haven of calm and relaxation for the working women of Fitzrovia. Aside from the fact that the friendly team are pros at what they do—whether its one of the five blow dry styles, or cool nail art—it's the heavenly interiors, the glass of Prosecco that comes with the treatment, and the owners, sisters Anita and Krisztina, welcoming demeanor. They also happen to have the largest selection of CND Shellac colors and the best nail art this city has to offer.
