In leafy, well-heeled Belgravia, Neville’s (as devotees call it) could have been forgiven for sitting back and churning out polished colour and cuts (both of which they excel at). But under the expert eye of beauty aficionado owner Elena Lavagni, it’s also become home to a carefully selected group of renowned beauty therapists, including Fere Parangi and medical facialist Renée Lapino.
On the hair front, they are open six days a week and are nearly always fully booked, which is testament to their expertise. Book in to see client favourite Jack Thirlway for cuts and treatments and Seniz Alkan, for her staggeringly good colour work (particularly balayage).
For beauty, there’s a manicure and pedicure bar and for the face, Fere Parangi’s facials have had a loyal following for decades (and she’s also one of the best hot waxers in London), which has seen everyone from Olivia Palermo to Yasmin Le Bon come through its doors for her skin perfecting expertise.
