The Beauty Atelier combines Suman’s expertise and passion for brows, with a thoughtful and comprehensive menu of top-to-toe beauty services.

Treatments available include microblading, lash lift and tint, facial aesthetics with Dr. Pam Benito, 3D Mink Eyelash Extensions, dry hair styling and more.
The Treatment: We loved their Lash Lift – adding length, volume and lift to natural eyelashes with no extensions, no adhesive and no mascara, SumanBrows’ Lash Lift is one of the quickest ways to brighten and lift your entire face. Unlike a traditional lash perm, this Lash Lift straightens your natural hairs at the root, creating the appearance of longer, thicker lashes with no need for mascara. With effects lasting for 6-8 weeks it’s a low maintenance way to enhance and accentuate your natural look.

What: LG Endermologie (30 minutes)
The Lowdown: LPG endermologie offers a 40-minute intense yet pleasant deep tissue massage – endermologie is a proven anti-ageing and body contouring skin fitness solution. After being used by 300,000 people daily worldwide and receiving ten generations of development, the brand new CELLU M6 therapy provides an entirely bespoke non-invasive and non-aggressive treatment. After a full skin assessment, areas requiring the most attention receive a targeted massage with the mechanism’s motorised rollerball head. Stimulating skin cells to produce collagen and hyaluronic acid, endermologie is an easy and low maintenance solution for non-beauty fanatics to enjoy alongside a healthy lifestyle.
The Treatment: The simple procedure allows the body to do the hard work itself, acting as an extensive of the masseuse’s arms. Endermologie’s latest development is the only non-aggressive therapy in the UK – free of freezing, heating, needles and recovery time. Although quick, easy and completely natural, the therapy achieves visible facial results after just one session or three sessions on the body which can be accelerated by exercise.
Where: Available at renowned locations around the country, including Harrods Wellness Clinic and KX Spa in Chelsea. Information here.
What: Medical Pedicure (45 minutes)
The Lowdown: Margaret Dabbs London is an independently owned foot and hand care brand with foot clinics and nail spas nationwide and abroad. Passionate about feet, Margaret Dabbs is a fully trained podiatrist and pioneer of the Medical Pedicure. In 2004, Margaret developed her own range of foot and hand products, which are sold in department stores, hotels and spas worldwide, and in her own clinics.
The Treatment: The Medical Pedicure is a thorough overhaul performed on any feet by a qualified podiatrist which will leave you feeling like you are walking on air, with feet which look and feel brand new. This 45-minute treatment represents a complete overhaul for the feet – the medical pedicure is performed on a dry foot to ensure exceptionally long-lasting results and the feet are transformed via the safe, surgical removal of all dead and dry skin and calluses. The nails are shaped, buffed and re-hydrated, and the feet are left revitalised and glowing. This fusion of health and beauty utilises Margaret’s own range of foot care products, expertly formulated and containing the hero ingredient emu oil, used for its anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and moisturising properties. We love.
