Davictor is an old-school high-class Chelsea hair & beauty salon with class, elegance, glamour and service being at the very heart of Gentlemans Butler’s ethos. We were indeed all smiles when we walked through the doors of Davictor at 18 Britten St., Chelsea, London SW3.
Gentlemans Butler is focused on bringing ladies and gentlemen high end services and brands. Having regular luxury beauty and grooming services is a key part of looking ones best and we like to remind Gentlemen that there is more to their grooming than just shaving. I myself enjoy nothing more than a pedicure as its that moment when can unwind and walk out the door with restored light of foot and your hands are really one of your calling cards as they go before you and so will reflect well on you and are very much part of your personal PR and whilst my hair is not so numerous in quantity as it was when I were a boy, it is still vital to look after your scalp, look ones best and again gain some respite from modern life.
As I walked through the door I was greeted by serenity, smiles on faces and a genuine warmth and connection and I felt at the outset, they want me to be there, they know who I am, and I am going to be looked after. This may seem simple, but you would be surprised how many do not get this right even in the luxury sector.
I was visiting to have a luxury manicure, pedicure and haircut.

Apollon’s moto is “Let the beauty you love be what we do” focusing on translating who you are on the inside to how you want to be perceived on the outside. From my experience they achieve this with 5 stars.
The Salon though supremely glamorous and modern in style, reminded me of 50’s chic with that Hollywood and sophisticated glamour which is unfortunately is less frequent now.
Luxury Pedicure by Mighena
Sat and shoes removed, fluffy tall coffee ordered, sat in vibrating (optional) massage chair which I asked to be reclined with extra cushions, so I felt relaxed. Feet placed in warm and glowing waters for soaking in Himalayan Epsom Salt and essentials oils.
Nails where shaped, cuticles adjusted, and callus was removed.
A collagen infused bootie mask was applied which I had never had (had other types but not this) and feet were wrapped in hot towels. The booties have the nails showing so the therapist can continue letting the collagen have as long as possible. I had a gel colour, SNB Profesional GL 048 natural pink applied which lasts longer and gives the nails a glow and a high end feel. Applied like a polish and cured under UV light, an Everlasting treatment ensures polish stays shiny and chip free for up to two weeks.
The treatment was
finished with a relaxing massage.
Manicure by Simona
The treatment started with wrapping the hands in hot towels and applying collagen infused gloves mask with removable finger tips so we could leave the mask on while proceeding with the nail’s treatment.
Nails were cut and shaped and a cuticle removal emollient was applied, and cuticles were pushed and cut.

Hair by Maria
My gentleman’s hair cut started with a consultation and then followed by the haircut.
Hair was washed using Nioxin shampoo and conditioner.
The head massage was super relaxing and should be a service on its own!! followed by hot and cold towels treatment.
Apollon Victoratos – Let the beauty you love, be what we do
“I will be turning 52 in August and have been having luxury nail treatments for over 25 years so you can imagine I have had a lot of treatments. This certainly ranks in the top 5, probably the top 3 and as I am not easy to impress it says a lot. Totally superb and look forward to returning soon.” Michael H Grenville – Editor-in-Chief of Gentlemans Butler
