We are proud to be the UK flagship salon for Davines. Davines is a brand that shares so much of our core vision of sustainable beauty, here’s what they have to say about themselves:
“Beauty Will Save the World”
Our style is a reflection of our curiosity and openness to the world – different cultures, customs, and people that truly inspire us – and our Italian perspective of history and art, design and fashion, culture and lifestyle because it is our heritage and who we are. We love things that reflect simplicity and harmony because their beauty is always modern. And although we’re in tune with today’s mood, we set out to create concepts and products that are destined to become classics with their timeless appeal.
“By creating beauty we want to encourage people to take care of themselves, of the environment in which they live and work, and of the things they love.”
“FOUNDED IN SCIENCE
STRENGTHENED BY PASSION”

“They may forget what you said or what you did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.”
Once upon a time… a mademoiselle just out of ballet slippers, had an a-list idea. Why should a damsel in a dress settle for nails au natural? From this stroke of brilliance, essie weingarten created smokin’ hot colors that were cute as a button and haute as hello. With blanc and really red in her carry on, she headed to vegas, where she mesmerized the limo-scene with her stylenomics.
Soon, every scarlett o’hara was jamaica me crazy for essie colors, from blushing bride and prima ballerina to bahama mama and big spender. Even the devil’s advocate was sew psyched. It seemed there were no boundaries to mini how high this leading lady could fly.
In lady like fashion, essie sold good as gold, from the coat azure to fifth avenue – all while keeping merino cool. The secret story to success? Sure shot chic color with a master plan that’s a cut above the rest, leaving the glamour purse set proclaiming, “it’s genius!” Brazilliant essie color has become the shine of the times, proving that beauty is not just a pretty face.
In 2001, ghd revolutionised the way women styled their hair with the launch of its first styler – a professional tool designed for salon use that could also be easily used at home.
Eyebrows are one of the most important features of our faces – and yet they are often the most neglected.
We created Billion Dollar Brows to stop this neglect and help customers all over the globe obtain the beautiful brows they deserve, at a sensible, price.
Our beginnings were humble: our first office/fulfillment center was the living room of our apartment in the middle of Los Angeles. We had a pretty good idea for a product though, a conditioning treatment that could help restore eyebrows that were thin and sparse due to over-tweezing and other maladies.
We will only ever sell teas of the highest quality. We will never compromise on quality. It also means we sell only whole leaf tea from selected estates, which we supply either as loose leaf or in tea temples.
We love tea; we just don’t like the snobbery that can come with it. Instead we concentrate on bringing you the very best tea we can find and not taking ourselves too seriously.
We don’t want to intimidate you with a huge list of teas or bewilder you with a mass of information (although, of course, you can always ask us). We’ve handpicked a select range that offers you the chance to discover the wonderfully diverse world of tea.
Kurt and Olaf began their friendship in their late teens, on board vintage scooters, whilst dabbling in the budding independent café revolution in the late 80’s New Zealand landscape. Both were inspired by design, function, great food and an obsession for fantastic coffee.
The quest for a decent coffee resumed when the boys met up in London in the early 90’s when Kurt was working as a chef and Olaf an international war correspondent cameraman. By the ‘naughties, Kurt’s attention turned from cuisine to boutique coffee roasting, making him one of the pioneers of the speciality roasting scene we see flourishing in London today. In 2010 the boys got hold of a bit of roasting kit, some old and some new, sourced some great specialty high mountain beans and started roasting them (…and tasting them…and roasting them…and roasting and tasting!).
So here we stand, still obsessing about beautiful coffee. Our team has grown, more family has got involved and we have been joined by other passionate coffee lovers (mainly from New Zealand we have to admit).
And now together we produce unique, fresh, high quality, magnificent coffee to satisfy our obsession … Oh, and yours too if you’d like.
It’s the kind of world we want to live in!
