Mother's Day is fast-approaching, and instead of giving her a gift voucher, why not book in some quality time for you both?
Whether it's a super quick brightening facial while you're out shopping, a luxurious mani and pedi sesh or a full day spent lounging around an indulgent spa, some of the best salons and spas in London have joint mother and daughter (or son) treatments on offer.
Gifting to her while treating yourself? Now that's a Mother's Day we can get on board with.
The buy one get one free blow-out
Located just off Sloane Square on cutesy shopping street Pavilion Road, Salon Sloane is a neighbourhood salon brimming with know-how. Book your mother in for a treatment (any treatment) on Friday 29th or Saturday 30th March, and you’ll get the same treatment absolutely free. Whether a bouncing blow-dry or a full blown set of highlights, you’ll both leave with locks polished to perfection.
Blow dries from £35, Colour from £70, Hair-up from £100. Offer valid from Friday, 29 March – Saturday, 30 March. One redemption per customer (the salon is closed on Sundays).
The mother of all manis
Manicurist Ama Quashie is one of the fashion industry’s favourite nail artists and the Brixton salon she opened in November 2018 is all about ameliorating and enhancing your natural nails. While offering premium traditional manicure and pedicure treatments AMA also has a ‘free from’ menu featuring Kure Bazaar and NCLA that are up to 90% natural, 10-free, vegan and cruelty free. Until March 31, AMA's nail pros are offering signature manicures for two people with prosecco for the mega bargain of £45, and gel manicures (again, with prosecco) for two for £60.
The hydrating mega facial
You’d be hard pressed to find a mother that wouldn’t appreciate a super hydrating, plumping facial. And the high-tech treatments at Waterhouse Young, a beautiful townhouse on a quiet street in Marylebone co-founded by Norman Waterhouse, are hard to beat. Book in for the Mother’s Day Package and you’ll both (simultaneously - they have two machines) receive a Hydrafacial, a multi-step treatment that uses patented technology to cleanse, exfoliate, extract and hydrate the skin with antioxidants & peptides. You mum will then get treated to an extra ‘HydraEyes’ (a HydraFacial which blasts hyaluronic acid-rich Intraceuticals products to the eye area), reducing wrinkles and leaving her peepers looking less crepey and twice as glowy.
If your mum’s serious about skincare, this is the one for her.
Two HydraFacials and one HydraEyes treatment for £400, available to book for a month from Mother’s Day.
The pedicure to end all pedicures
When it comes to super luxe pedis, nobody does it better than Margaret Dabbs.
So much more than a skin scrub and a lick of nail polish, Margaret Dabbs offer medical pedicures from certified podiatrists, perfect for feet in need of some serious love and attention.
The Mother’s Day package starts with a 45 minute Medical Pedicure with one of Margaret Dabbs London’s professional Podiatrists in a private room. This total overhaul of the feet is then followed by a Supreme Manicure in the nail spa area, a wonderful 50-minute treatment to re-condition the nails and hydrate the skin of the hands finishing with a hand massage and polish.
Plus, they’ll be serving bubbly to all customers on Sunday March 31.
Mother's Day Package, £130. Clinics in Marylebone, Notting Hill and Liberty London.
