144a Brompton Rd., Knightsbridge
Amie has been a colorist for over 30 years working on photo shoots, runway shows, and at some of the most prestigious salons in London. Currently, she divides her time between the salon and session work. She's got color, from natural to outlandish, down to a science.
Hans Crescent, Knightsbridge
With 20-odd years of experience under her belt, Arezoo Kaviani does the best Brazilian wax in London, bar none. Just a stone’s throw from Harrods', her spa is conveniently located, too.
Grace Belgravia, 11c W. Halkin St., Knightsbridge
Gabriela took an interest in nutrition as a model, and now helps clients achieve their model ambitions through nutrition. Beyond prescribing eating plans, Gabriela places a strong emphasis on testing for intolerance and hormonal imbalance, to find the root causes of many issues. It helps that's she's based at The Grace in Belgravia, with just about every lab and specialist available at her fingertips.
174 Walton St., Knightsbridge
While Gazelli is already known for its skincare range developed by Dr. Zarifa Hamzayeva, you can expect the therapies offered at their sumptuous new HQ to go way beyond the surface. Membership to their beautiful townhouse on Walton Street comes with their two signature diagnostic treatments. Whether you go in for a facial or a body treatment, each session is completely bespoke and might include anything from microdermabrasion to radio frequency. After that, Gazelli also offers introductions to a variety of other practitioners, from life coaches to hypnotists, to get you glowing from the inside out.
36 Beauchamp Place, Knightsbridge
Linda Meredith is the old-school facial destination in London, as Meredith has worked on everyone from Farrah Fawcett to Kate Middleton, and she's inarguably the facialist London models and society ladies recommend the most. An appointment at her Knightsbridge salon is definitely worth the splurge as her team is known for identifying, treating, and eliminating skin conditions. She has outposts all over England as well as Barcelona.
The Bulgari Spa
171 Knightsbridge, Knightsbridge
While it's no surprise that one of London's swankiest hotels would have a bejewelled spa and gym to match, it's the treatments on offer that really make the Bulgari stand out. Cupping, Chinese Tui-Na, the Bowen Technique, Osteopathy, and even Emotional Healing with the self-proclaimed "Modern Day Wizard" (price tag to match) are on offer here. In addition, the spa's Trend Room is home to the hottest pop up wellness concepts and changes every few months.
The Lanesborough Spa
2 Lanesborough Place, Knightsbridge
A relatively recent renovation to the spa and gym at London’s grande dame the Lanesborough takes wellness to the next level. The gym is first-class and available to guests and members with a slew of Bodyism performance specialists on hand for one-on-one and class training,as well as full health assessments. Box, run, weight lift, dance, yoga you name it—it’s all available, plus a café that features nutritionist-led dishes and drinks for lunch after a workout. Highlights at the spa include Ila facials, crystal sound healing (pure sound vibrations made using a pestle and crystal bowl), and Tibetan energy healing. The biggest draw however is an energetic healing facial with the renowned Anastasia Achilleos (Achilleos has a residency on Thursdays, be sure to book early). The pool is one of the prettiest in London, and overall, the Lanesborough feels much more like a retreat than a fitness club.
The Light Salon
Harvey Nichols, 4th Floor, 109-125, Knightsbridge
This new salon has pretty much revolutionized skincare with a short and relatively affordable LED treatment. First off, the space looks more like a beautifully appointed nail salon than a skin clinic. Once you're seated in one of their comfy grey chairs, it's a quick and painless 11-minute session in front of an LED lamp. Most treatments consist of a combination of Yellow and Near Infrared Light, though for those (including teens) with more acne-prone or scarred skin, courses of Blue Light treatments are also available. Unlike other skin treatments like peels and microdermabrasion, the collagen and elastin boost is immediately evident, leaving clients with a natural glow. It's worth making a habit, as results are said to be cumulative—and it doesn't hurt that the salon is housed inside of Harvey Nichols.
