Finding a salon in London is never easy, and so when we were invited to try Leticia Haute Coiffure nestled into chic Marylebone, it didn’t take much persuading.
The salon opened about 2 years ago, and recently purchased the property next door, transforming it into a gorgeous nail bar.
The pampering began with a mani-pedi in the nail bar, executed brilliantly by obviously well-trained staff. There was a huge selection of essie and OPI colours to choose from, and staff were great at recommending and guiding according to the trends.
The pedicure at Leticia Haute Coiffure even included a paraffin wax treatment, which I’d never had before, and despite feeling a little silly walking around with wax and plastic bags on my feet, the result was baby-soft skin that looks fresh and hydrated.
Glammed up and nails decorated, I went through to the hair salon to be greeted by the in-house puppy, Jack. The salon has a real personality and welcoming feel which Jack only added to, and really feels like a haven. They even have a VIP room if you want total privacy, or to use with friends or your Mum for an indulgent treat.
Pierre, the Creative Director at Leticia Haute Coiffure has worked all over the world, and has a background in fashion, which really shows in his advice and style when treating hair. He talked me through the issues I had with my hair, and quickly dispelled most of my misconceptions about its condition, and what my routine should be.
Post hair-wash I was taken back to Pierre who gave me a 15 minute head and shoulder massage which left me feeling like I was 21 again (no mean feat) and was a superb addition to the cut.
Leticia Haute Coiffure really goes the extra mile in making guests feel relaxed. The cut was superb and I have already booked appointment number 2. Followed by the quickest blow dry I’ve ever had (I think he’s actually won awards on the speed of this) which was as good as any I’d ever had, but in less than half the time, this salon is a real find.
The spa downstairs offers treatments, some of which are totally unique to the UK (Galvanic, which Brad Pitt favours, and leaves you looking 10 years younger) as well as facials, massages, and waxing.
It’s refreshing to find a salon in London with personality, quality, professionalism and individuality without paying astronomical fees, but this is one to keep on your radar and try next time you’re in town with a spare afternoon.
