While we couldn’t be happier that London’s top hair salons have reopened and implemented new Covid-19 measures to keep us all safe, there are still those who aren’t quite ready to leave the comfort and security of their homes after months of lockdown. Luckily, some of the city’s leading mobile beauty therapists have come up with innovative ways to bring the best of London’s hairdressing talent to you, with added safety measures including technicians wearing full PPE. Here, we’ve rounded up the best at-home hair services and mobile hairdressers to book for a post-lockdown reboot.
Glow & Dry
Founded by industry trailblazer Scarlett Gray back in 2017, Glow & Dry is at the forefront when it comes to mobile beauty, bringing the city’s finest celebrity and backstage make-up artists and hair stylists to you. Now they’ve launched an innovative new initiative, partnering with leading London salons including Jo Hansford, Salon Sloane, Hari’s, Salon 64 and Hershesons for the ultimate at-home hair treatments.
The concierge service allows customers to jump the ever-growing salon queues and book coveted appointments with London’s best hair stylists enabling them to be treated in the comfort and safety of their own home – or the garden. All technicians will wear PPE and equipment will be sanitised between appointments. “Scarlett’s new concept will be a great opportunity for us to reach a new audience of customers who don’t wish to visit a salon at this time and generate a wider audience for the salon,” says Jo Hansford.
Appointments from 7am-1am. Bookings can be made online at glowandry.com

Doing away with the need to venture out to a salon, their therapists will come straight to you and provide much-needed trims for the whole family, with women’s cuts starting from £45 and children’s from £18.
