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 mother/daughter therapists Fere and Hasti Parangi, massage whizz Tetyana and cosmetic expert Dr. Jack‘s The Facial Bar.
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, Tetyana has become known as London’s cellulite slayer for her lymph-boosting, water retention drainage technique, that results in a visibly flatter stomach and improvement in dimpled areas. She’s also a dab-hand at pregnancy massage – to help keep circulation flowing, reducing swelling, pain and hormonal puffiness. Fere Parangi’s facials have had a loyal following for decades (and she’s also one of the best hot waxers in London), while daughter Hasti returned from a successful stint in LA to start their joint clinic Fere + Hasti, which has seen everyone from Olivia Palermo to Yasmin Le Bon come through its doors for their skin perfecting expertise. Downstairs, aesthetic doctor, Dr. Jack has designed The Facial Bar – an open-plan, two-chair facial hub that offers medical grade facials and monthly membership options so that you can get your facial fix without having to trek to Harley Street.
