As party season gets underway, these Belgravia beauty spots will help you look and feel your sparkling best. Words by Cally Squires.
Try LondonCryo’s infrared sauna (from £40) for a quick, collagen-boosting lunchtime pick-me-up.
Sessions in the individual sauna last either 25 or 45 minutes. Light heats the body directly as opposed to the air around it in a traditional sauna.
It’s safe to take your phone in with you.
So, depending on how hot you set the temperature, you might even be able to get your Christmas shopping sorted while you’re in there.
Couture brow queen Suzanne Martin is the lady to see for semi-permanent brows to see you into 2020 and beyond.
Treatments with The Lanesborough’s resident brow expert cost £1,400 and are completely bespoke. So you can opt for perfect tailored arches or simply cover up patches of past over plucking.
With a little numbing cream the treatment itself is totally painless, even though the surface of the skin is broken and filled with pigment.
Power through the whole of party season with a set of lash extensions from Primalashes. They add both length and volume to natural lashes.
With either classic or more dramatic Russian volume styles available, the individually applied lashes last up to three or four weeks.
A full set of classic lashes (£80) takes about an hour to apply. But you’ll easily make up for that when it comes to speedily getting ready for Christmas parties in half the normal time.
Pop in for a patch test 24 hours before.
Primalashes, 145 Ebury Street.
Put your hair in the hands of sought-after colourist Daniel Galvin Jr.
He will not only make your highlights look fantastic, but thanks to his peroxide free colours, will ensure your locks feel healthy too.
For an extra special occasion add on a conditioning steam treatment to your wash, and of course a volumising blow-dry to finish.
Following a short summer closure for a refurbishment, Issy’s is back open. It now offers nail services from resident manicurist Joan, who can tend to talons while customers are getting a party blow-out.
It’s an ultra-lux mani using Margaret Dabbs products and a 10-free polish from vegan brand Sundays.
Or to keep it super natural, let Joan buff and file your own nails, along with a hand scrub and massage, and keep them polish-free and healthy.
Everyone who buys a course of blow-drys will also get a complimentary shape and polish.
When the demands of festive socialising become too much, decamp to The Berkeley’s divine spa for a relaxing signature Bamford treatment (£175 for 90 minutes).
The magic starts with a cleansing footbath, followed by a full body massage using shiatsu, meridian and Swedish techniques. Adjust the pressure your therapist uses according to how tense you feel.
Those muscle aches will melt away while you receive a much-needed energy boost.
A pressure point massage on the face, neck and shoulders combined with calming yogic breathing will see off any lingering languor.
