Autumn is well and truly setting in, bringing chillier days, darker nights and a deep-seated need to pamper ourselves. Research dictates that self-care can help dissolve stress and boost happiness. So why not head over to Rathbone Square and indulge yourself in a spot of autumn self-care, and see what it can do for your mind, body and mood? There’s plenty on offer… come join us!.
A beauty treatment. A makeover. A spa experience. A spot of meditation. Whatever makes you feel better, a change of season is the ideal time to spoil yourself.
Go on, pamper yourself!
Being pampered is an essential part of any self-care routine and it can have a truly positive impact on mental health and well-being. Taking time to pamper yourself can reduce stress, boost self-esteem, enhance your mood and promote better sleep, as well as providing time for self-reflection.
At Rathbone Square, pampering opportunities abound for all.
Adam Grooming is Rathbone Square’s very own atelier and one of the highest rated and most reviewed men’s barbers in London. There’s plenty in store here in the hands of Adam’s highly skilled team.
Feel like new by plumping for a fresh style, or sit back and relax as the team take you to your happy place courtesy of the likes of luxurious hot towels and balm, a relaxing scalp massage or a soothing wet shave. You’ll even get to enjoy a complimentary beverage whilst you savour the experience.
From here, we’re heading over to Rawr Beauty, where a team of in-house beauty experts are ready and waiting to make you feel – and look - a million dollars.
From lavish manicures to relaxing pedicures, and from wow-factor eyelash extensions to sculpting brow laminations, there’s nothing like a beauty treatment to make you feel the centre of attention.
7 Sky Spa
And now for something truly relaxing… at 7 Sky Spa, you’ll find an array of luxury treatments designed to make you feel like pampered royalty. A deeply relaxing Balinese stone massage will melt away your tension, help ease muscle stiffness and give your circulation and metabolism a boost.
Or how about a private Hammam treatment to soothe your mood? Relax and unwind in the warmth of the Hammam Room as your skin is cleansed and exfoliated like never before, leaving you refreshed and meditative.
Other treatments include chocolate wrappings designed to detoxify, tone and soften your skin whilst making you feel uplifted. And the 15-minute leg scrub which leaves legs smooth and shiny, with the exotic scent of mango, lychee, papaya or banana giving your mood a boost.
At 7 Sky Spa, every private treatment room has its own shower which clients are free to use, as well as essentials such as a hairbrush and hairdryer, makeup removal kits, antiperspirant and other handy touches to make your visit perfect. Makeover me!
Makeovers, especially a new hairstyle, have the power to brighten your look, and can be a serious mood booster too. A makeover is an empowering experience that can make you feel strong and beautiful, both inside and out.
You’ll not go far wrong at Rathbone Square if a makeover is topping your autumn self-care list. With this in mind, let’s continue our tour…
Vixen & Blush
Our first magic makeover stop is Vixen & Blush, the home of natural-looking hair extensions. Respected across the industry as London’s leading dedicated hair extensions salon, Vixen & Blush specialises in creating customised extensions, designed to individual needs and wants.
Only the finest hair will do for this brand, whose highly qualified hairdressers each have at least ten years’ London salon experience. Vixen & Blush also has a firm belief that hair extensions should be fitted by stylists rather than technicians, so you can expect only the most remarkable results as your new look takes shape.
Offering a variety of hair extension techniques, including clip-in, micro bond, micro ring and tape-in, the salon’s experts can also come up with bespoke solutions for wedding hair and thinning hair. And there’s even more here to fuel your autumn makeover dreams…
As well as hair extensions, there’s a host of hair treatments to help give your natural hair a boost, plus a selection of programmes designed to rescue your hair’s health. So if you’re suffering from colour damage, pregnancy or menopause related hair thinning, or hair-related issues caused by medical treatment or stress, the team will come up with something to restore your confidence.
There’s also the Vixen & Blush tailor-made #GrowYourOwn programme, providing hair extensions and treatments to help with restoring natural hair quality. Now how’s that for a spot of autumn self-care?
Nothing says makeover more than a new hair colour. And if you’re in the market for a shade transformation this autumn, Samantha Cusick London is ready to oblige courtesy of an expert colourist team.
Founded in 2016, Samantha Cusick specialises in using colouring and balayage to create everyday wearable styles. There’s a caring team dedicated to making sure you leave feeling over the moon with your new look, and won’t ever end up with a colour that’s not your bag.
Working with you to understand your personal #HairGoals, the team will create a look that works for you and your lifestyle.
Work on your mental and physical well-being
When it comes to self-care, mind and body simply have to feature.
Meditation and mindfulness are hugely beneficial for mental wellness, helping to gain a new perspective on stressful situations, boosting self-awareness, reducing negative emotions, increasing patience, tolerance, imagination and creativity, and lowering your resting heart rate.
At 7Breaths Meditation in Rathbone Square, the team champions mental well-being through mindfulness, meditation and movement.
Set in a beautiful sanctuary and delivered by highly experienced teachers, the accessible guided classes include breathwork, gong bath, sound healing, qigong, tai chi, restorative yoga, yin yoga, meditation and mindfulness.
