The modern gent needs to do a fair amount of grooming these days – whether you want a haircut in luxurious surroundings or need full body treatments from head to toe, read our guide to the best men’s spa and grooming salons in London.
Dr. Barbara Sturm at the Corinthia Hotel
The ESPA Spa at the Corinthia Hotel, one of our favourite spas in London, now offers fantastic facials from renowned skincare specialist, Dr. Barbara Sturm, known for her non-surgical anti-aging treatments.
The men’s facial, available for 60 or 75 minutes, cleanses, tones, soothes and comforts irritated skin. It removes rough or dry skin and promotes skin regeneration, while also fighting the signs of aging, under eye discoloration and puffiness.
The longer treatment includes micro-needling that stimulates collagen and elastin in the skin. Click here for further information.

With two prime locations, one directly opposite Claridge’s in Mayfair and another outpost in Harrods, The Refinery offers a full men’s spa and salon experience – from haircuts and shaves to facials and full body treatments.
Your one-stop shop for all your grooming needs, and you can even take home The Refinery’s own branded products to use at your leisure.
Having recently moved from Savile Row to Newburgh Street behind Carnaby Street in Soho, Pankhurst offers shaving and hair styling as you sit back in bespoke leather barbers’ chairs that have been hand upholstered by Bentley’s craftsmen – true class.
Aldwyn & Sons
Aldwyn & Sons opened in 2018 as the first pedicure treatment dedicated to men – designed in a ‘speakeasy’ style, you enter through Sharp’s Barber & Shop in Fitzrovia, further adding to the speakeasy theme.
The look is decidedly masculine, designed to make men feel at ease immediately.
Aldwyn & Sons offers a menu of manicure and pedicure treatments, with manicures priced from £40 and pedicures from £50.
Go for the signature, 45-minute ‘Modern Footman’, encompassing a pedicure of nail and cuticle work, foot filing, exfoliation and moisturising, followed by a foot massage. A must before a beach holiday.
