Unlocking Luxury: Inside London’s Leading Beauty Haven, Urban Retreat…

You would have seen the latest viral trend floating around social media. The infamous ‘of course’ trend took over scrolling time, so we hopped on it quicker than you can say ‘bouncy blow dry’.

London is a hot spot for the ‘crème de la crème’ of beauty destinations, and as we used Tik Tok to show you a glimpse of what makes Urban Retreat, London’s ultimate beauty, hair and wellness destination, special. Read on to discover some of the quirks that make Urban Retreat.

Nestled between Barbican and Farringdon tube stations, Urban Retreat finds itself in a youthful and trendy area of The City. Quickly becoming one of the most desirable areas for those who want to experience a vibrant and buzzing setting, Urban Retreat’s location caters for individuals who require high quality and luxurious beauty treatments on the go. The perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

 

Cafe Zone

Are you trying to eat a little healthier but can’t face another limp looking supermarket salad? From freshly prepared and made-to-order sandwiches and salads, to health infused smoothies, FlavoUR Café boasts a unique hospitality concept at the front of Urban Retreat. It’s here that you’ll find delicious flavours from our regularly changing, seasonal specials. Steer your eyes away from processed and undesirable foods this lunchtime and try out our ‘build your own salad’ option. With choices such as chermoula roast chicken, teriyaki tofu and a wide range of seasonal vegetables, we give you the opportunity to enjoy food and beauty, all under one roof.

 

Relax Zone

Heated Italian treatment beds? You heard correctly. Whether you’re checking in for an Ultra Facial, some Brazilian Drainage Massage, or a quick pre-holiday wax, it’ll be hard not to doze off on the warmth from below. We understand that comfort is key, and we make that our priority with memory foam mattresses, REAL Italian leather and automatic foot pedals… what more could your heart desire!

 

Salon Zone

Specializing in all hair types can be hard to come by. If you have read our last blog post, you’ll know about the vast array of blow dries we offer. However, we like to take it a step further than this, and we can proudly say that our hair team understands the needs and wants of all different types of hair. Whether your locks are straight, wavy, dry, thick, or curly, Urban Retreat embodies the skill, expertise and knowledge to treat each and every client to the best bespoke experience.

 

The last point is one not to miss. Ever been to a nail salon and been horrified to see that they ‘drill’ your nails with an electric file? At Urban Retreat we say NO to electric files. The truth is, you can get amazing (and better) results from using a manual file and buffer. Electric files can damage the nail bed, they are noisy and can sometimes do more harm than good. One of the most significant benefits of using a manual nail file is the gentleness they offer. Give your delicate nails a break from e-files and swap it out for a manual file to reduce the risk of damaging your natural nail. As a bonus you will get unmatched precision when it comes to achieving the desired shape of the nail!

We could sit here and praise Urban Retreat all day. But we know you need to come and experience it for yourself. What better way to indulge than booking yourself into the UR Experience Package. This bundle allows you to have a taste of everything under our roof… from massage, facial, all the way to a manicure and a blow dry. So, with enough said, say ‘of course’ to Urban Retreat

 

We cannot wait to welcome you!
