Prepping for a much-deserved summer holiday isn’t just about packing the right suit and sunnies. Whether we’re heading to Hel or the French Riviera, we really want to feel our best among all the bikini babes on the beach. Women and men alike tend to hit the salon pre-break for a bit of primp and polish from head to toe.
Haircology (ul. Rozbrat 44A) A hair salon that feels like a mega-indulgent eco-spa, from the décor to the luxurious organic products they use. Even before you get to the cutting, there’s a full treatment of washes and rinses infused with mint, rosemary, lemon and nettle: all meant to purify and add shine. A top choice for a pre-holiday cut.
Pardon My French (Belwederska 32) The equipment here is state-of-the art, particularly the massage chairs for indulgent pedicures. While gel tips and all that hybrid stuff is all the rage now, it might be more prudent to get a classic mani/pedi to avoid beauty emergencies when you’re drifting in the middle of the Mediterranean on P. Diddy’s yacht.
La Perla (multiple locations inc. Łowicka 21B/1, Wilcza 22A, Hilton Hotel) Here, the staff is adept and certified at a range of innovative treatments: from the non-invasive Bella Contour treatment to the Body Tite and Body Jet treatments that use the latest surgical procedures to slim and tighten. For summer the right spa/salon/clinic is key. La Perla’s all three in one!
