Gentlemen, civilization, class, distinction and good old fashioned service, yes it does exist.
I am lucky enough to have been brought up by parents who valued doing things properly and as a Virgo I am a perfectionist, so to experience this first hand is very refreshing.
As you walk through the door of The Ritz Hotel in London you are walking into Royalty, a movie set, and a piece of amazing architecture all wrapped in one.
Classic English and London civility is about being looked after, efficiency and polite but friendly conversation whilst knowing that your beautician knows what she is doing.
The salon is tucked away, bespoke and so intimate you feel they are especially there for you. The pedicure throne is lovely and cosy set in the dormers of the hotel, light but private as you have a curtain keeping your area secluded.
My beautician answered my questions, and accommodated my decisions.
My feet were scrubbed, nails cut and cuticles tidied and feet massaged all with Orly pedicure products which felt fantastic. You know when a cream is doing the trick as is soaks right into the skin. At the end of my treatment I was not hurried but allowed to leave at my own pace.
Lovely to see some things do not change, thankfully, simple, classic pure class just right for a Gentleman who needs grooming.
