Immediately HT by Sakurami has become one of my favourites.
The reasons are simple. They are welcoming and I was treated as an individual by professionals with impeccable service and with results that speak volumes.
The finish for my manicure is one of the best results I have ever had.
Gentlemans Butler sources the best luxury services in London and from around the world.
There are certainly larger and more lavish salons but the attention to care and excellence I felt really stands out.
HT by Sakurami London was founded by Anna-Maria Ryklina and now have a chain of beauty salons across the world with locations in Moscow, Sochi, Tbilisi, Tokyo, Dubai and now London.
The London flagship salon offers a diverse array of services, including colour & cuts, hair treatments, make-up, lashes & brow treatments, manicure & pedicure, facials, slimming and rejuvenating aesthetic treatments, massage, waxing and tanning.
It is one of the only Chelsea salons to hold an alcohol license serving cocktails to clients whilst they relax and get pampered. Also, clients can also order food from one of the nearby popular restaurants.
Often woman are pressed for time and that is why HT by Sakurami London uniquely provides services for their clients at home or outside of operating hours, either before or after salon hours.
The salon also has the capacity to work events providing hair styling, express manicures and makeup application.
I visited last week to have a Spa (their most luxurious one) manicure and pedicure with a hair treatment and cut.
This is a something we recommend to both ladies and gentlemen, especially as this salon’s clever use of space allows multi treatments to take place at the same time.
I arrived just before 3, on a sunny afternoon in Chelsea. Katia, their manager met me. I took a seat and was offered a choice of wine.
It was a Friday so a good glass of red was welcomed.
Soon after Katia escorted me downstairs to their pedicure thrown room. Though not large I really liked. Its mix of good lighting, glass and brick gives it a very cool and relaxed feel.
With the large flat screen tv playing MTV and the ladies in their facemasks I felt like a cross between a spaceman waiting at mission control and a sci-fi film where men are beautified and not the women … mmm am I dreaming !!!
Interestingly historically many of our todays make up and beauty treatments came from men, particularly from Asia.
In all I would be sitting here for about 2 hours, with filing, scrubs, moisturizing, dead skin removal, cuticle work and finishing touches.
Many of the products are from the Essie range including the finish I have which is Mademoiselle from Essie. It’s a very pale pink which just makes the nail look alive and vibrant as well as very smart. I now that many Gentlemen may not want this, so this is just my choice, but those with an adventurous spirit should try as the results are superb.
Lydia, originally Moldovan, but basically a Muscovite would be looking after my pedicure and Simona from Bulgaria who was really superb in looking after everything, my manicure.
The attention to detail by both beauticians and the feel of my news hands and feet was superb and 2 hours flew by.
I then headed back upstairs to have my hair done by Luba who was genuinely charming. I really felt like I was her only attention, which I have to say is not always the case, even in top salons.
It’s one of my pet hates, salon staff just having a great big chit chat next to you as you have a treatment as its rude and in my book very unprofessional. I was looked after, the cut and treatment explained and then time for me to switch off again. I had an invigorating balance shampoo from Kerastase which looks after the scalp and roots, particularly important for those Gentleman who are follicly challenged, which I think is a beautiful description.
I had the chance to meet Tatiana, one of the owners, who again had an ethos of looking after her clients.
I finished my red wine with some cookies, had my socks and shoes put back on and left a very relaxed and impressed boy.
