While we couldn’t be happier for London’s top hair salons to reopen on April 12 with all the Covid-19 measures in place, there will still be 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 hairdressers and mobile beauty companies 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. Last summer, they even partnered with leading London salons including Jo Hansford, Salon Sloane, Hari’s, Salon 64 and Hershesons to bring their best hair experts to your home.
The concierge service allows customers to jump the ever-growing salon queues and book coveted appointments with London’s best hair stylists. All technicians will wear PPE and equipment will be sanitised between appointments. “Scarlett’s concept is a great opportunity for us to reach a new audience of customers who don’t wish to visit a salon at this time.” says Jo Hansford.
Appointments from 7am-1am. Bookings can be made online at glowandry.com

Known as a one-stop-shop for mobile beauty treatments, Secret Spa is the go-to destination when you’re looking to book everything from a handy pre-event spray tan to a last-minute wax or indulgent massage.

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, as well as a selection of colouring options. Fast, efficient and friendly, they’ll fix up any lockdown hair mishaps and leave the entire household looking infinitely more coiffed than when they arrived.
