Harrods is making further inroads into the British beauty space with the opening this week of a new Hair and Beauty Salon on the fifth floor of the Knightsbridge store. The launch of the salon marks the final phase of the beauty transformation at the Knightsbridge store. The new halls currently span 90,000ft2 (8,400m2) and Hair and Beauty Salon, which puts a strong focus on wellness and services, adds a further 16,985ft2 (1,580m2). The offer includes treatments such as Japanese-style ‘scalp facials,’ a hair extension ‘library,’ and Philip Kingsley Elasticizer treatments. The dedicated hairstyling space is known as the Hairdressing Rotunda, and features seats set around a curved central area emulating the original 1982 design. The idea was to bring a sense of old-world glamour, and allow customers to chat with their stylists privately and freely. The salon’s Backwash Room was inspired by traditional Japanese head spa rituals which the Harrods beauty team discovered in Tokyo.


Some 43 beauty brands are on offer with several Harrods exclusives, including Sarah Chapman’s Overnight Facial; Aromatherapy Associates’ City Serenity Bath & Shower Oil; Philip Kingsley’s Mayan Vanilla & Orange Blossom Elasticizer, and Harrods’ first beauty box, which contains an assortment of hair and skin care essentials chosen by the Harrods beauty buying team. Other treatments include nail art by Townhouse, laser hair removal, waxing, massages, body wraps and facials. There is also an Eye Zone, which offers eyelash extensions, Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow treatments, and Dr. Dennis Gross LED light treatments, and Oxygen Flash Facials. Separately, Harrods is continuing to roll out stand-alone H Beauty stores throughout the U.K. and is also offering treatments, services and a Champagne bar in each of the stores.
