London beauty destination: Marylebone
The ultimate guide to salons, beauty services and stores in Marylebone
The newly revamped British chemist (read: magical beauty emporium) is John Bell & Croyden on Wigmore Street. Not only does it have over 120 beauty brands, including Bamford, Korres, and SkinCeuticals, but it also offers bespoke facials in dedicated treatment rooms. The in-residence beauty guru, Maria Dichio, knows everything there is to know about skin. She will discuss your skin aspirations and problems and devise a plan specifically tailored to you. She mixes and matches and creates a bespoke package and is armed with brands such as Dermalogica, Oskia, Zelens, and Natura Bissé. Furthermore, facials are priced at £100 for a 60-minute treatment; 50% of the cost of treatment is redeemable against any products in-store (from hair and skincare to your basic beauty groceries like toothpaste too.)Read more ...
Plenty of nail salons have popped up around London – but for trusted expertise, hygiene that's on point, and a complete nail and foot rejuvenation, nobody does it like Margaret Dabbs. Her outpost, on New Cavendish Street, offers a little slice of foot heaven, with a scrub, massage and nail buff, so you can walk out sans colour or choose one her rose-scented polishes, that are free from formaldehyde, toluene and DBP.
Luxury pedicure from £60 for 55 minutes.Read more ...
Fresh Boutique may be a little shop on Marylebone, but it is mighty when it comes to gifting, skincare and scents.
Everything is boxed impeccably with your choice of grosgrain ribbon and tags (all free), their helpful staff are super knowledgeable and they also offer divine mini spa services in their secret treatment room. (Amy, the Fresh regional manager has magic hands). For December, they are offering a Festive Party Prep Facial to recharge your batteries, along with pepping up your skin before heading out. The price is redeemable against purchases, and you also get a complimentary beverage and free gift of the day. Spoilt? I should say.
All facials are £25 and are redeemable against purchase. Book in by calling the boutique 020 7486 4100.Read more ...
From a quick eyebrow tidy to microblading, make Vaishaly Patel's Clinic your go-to place. There are a few walk-in appointments, but it's always best to book. You'll emerge with the best arches, thanks to her signature threading technique, plus a plan to keep up the excellent work at home. She's also a super facialist and her signature treatment combines a deep cleanse, microdermabrasion and high-frequency technique, along with a dreamy craniosacral massage to treat stress spots. Bliss.
Eyebrow shaping from £25.Read more ...
From kale smoothies to a dedicated salad bar and hot platefuls of vegan specialities, healthy chicken dishes and greens, it's easy to squeeze in your five a day here. There are gastro extravagances too, like cake and pastries to go with an excellent World Land Trust 100% Arabica coffee.Read more ...
Along with the cool houndstooth face masks and trend-driven fashion – there are also all your K-Beauty needs in Koibird. There's an entire wall of beauty stuff with all the big hitters like Jin Soon nails, Venn, Beautyqlo and Shangpree (this is where the K-Pop stars go to spa in Seoul). Along with shelves dedicated to sheet masks (cue: frenzy), there are some lovely flowering teas that come in test tubes, that make a great gift.
