Lose yourself in organic bliss at the Aveda Institute Spa & Salon
Aveda is one of the best-known names in organic skincare and hair care. Located on the fringes of Covent Garden, you will spot the glow emanating from the Aveda Institute from the end of the street. The Institute has it all – an organic café, a world-renowned hair salon, a range of organic products for sale, and of course, the spa.
Aveda’s philosophy is to use nothing but organic, botanical ingredients in its products, so high tech, chemically based treatments are never going to be available here. Instead, the spa has introduced a range of botanic ‘alternatives’ to popular treatments such as colonic irrigation and microdermabrasion. While they may not be as effective as their chemical cousins, the Aveda treatments are relaxing, environmentally friendly and kind to sensitive skin.
The Institute is constantly adding to its offerings. Recently, it launched a Grooming Station by Aveda Men, which caters exclusively for the health conscious yet busy men of London.
The hair salon offers a full range of barber services (including a cut throat shave), as well as a ‘Beard Perfection’ option, and a selection of 15-minute express treatments – perfect if you’re running late for a hot date, or want to smarten up for an interview.
