This is the place to get big hair and see big names. Neville Hair and Beauty is the original pearl set amongst the glitz and glamour of Knightsbridge and Belgravia.
The salon has tended to the sleekest of celebrities to the original die hard clients who refuse to get their hair done anywhere else, who cant change a hair habit of a lifetime.
Surrounded by so much prestige Nevilles is a refreshingly down to earth salon where it prides itself on its incredibly friendly and welcoming atmosphere, making it more a home from home for its regulars. A trip to Nevilles will make you look an feel good with the indulgent combination of superlative creative hair styling and the very best wellbeing treatments.
Neville Tucker is recognised by many in the industry as the godfather of celebrity hairdressers Ever conscious of the importance of in-depth training, he nurtured the early talents of Lee Stafford, Errol Douglas, Richard Ward and Paul Edmond to name but a few! Neville himself trained at Alexandra Paris and at the Ginger Group.
Whilst evidently at the hub of the hairdressing world for many years, owing to his laid back persona, by his own volition Neville has rarely pushed himself into the spotlight, preferring the talent of his hairdressing skills to do the talking for him. Neville now runs Neville Hair & Beauty with Elena Lavagni, leaving him free to focus on what he loves – creating fabulous hairstyles!
Showing how the salon is refusing to diminish and fade away due to other new salon kids on the block, Neville Hair and Beauty has recently undergone a face lift. On entering you are greeted by a fabulous retro orange reception desk which sets the scene for whats to follow. Urban raw brick walls run along the side of both walls creating a modern, airy feel. The salon is uncluttered and spacious with no frills and spills; after all they leave their haircuts to do the talking.
The recent addition to the salon is the revamped colouring bar on the ground floor. Nevilles have gone to extreme lengths to make sure natural light falls into this room by extending the top floor window all the way down to the colouring bar so colouring stylists and customers see their new hair colour in a natural light. The Ultimate Kerastase Back Spa Beds allow you to kick your feet up and relax whilst apprentices lather your hair. So no aching neck or dead feet! Nevilles have incorporated these stunning and thoroughly individual design elements that typify the salons approach to making sure their client is happy every step of the way.
The beauty room is run by Fere Parangi, who is more than your average beautician, unbeknown to Fere, she has the tremendous title of being the best hot waxer in London. With seventeen years of beauty experience in Harvey Nichols under her white pinafore she waves her magic hands creating the most luxurious facial and even enjoyable leg wax due to her own soft, painless approach. Fere continues to pamper the Royalty and pop stars alike in their endless pursuit for the body beautiful. Her top treatments are Caviar treatment, Oxygen Facial, Honey Bees Wax and Caci.
Nevilles reputation for excellence appeals to a genuine cross section of clientele; their clients range from business women to socialites, models, royalty, celebrities and people living locally, who all return time after time for their signature style of contemporary sophistication. The salon is also a firm favourite with the press and Neville, Elena and the team are always keen to see journalists indulging themselves in the salon.
