For those who care about what is going into and on to their bodies, the Aveda Institute on High Holborn is hard to beat. One of the orginal purveyors of natural hair and skin products, the brand continues to deliver quality treatments at this vast, airy hair and beauty spa. Time Out has long been a fan of the salon, not only for its fabulous non-agressive colour and great cuts, but the serene manicure and pedicure booths, tucked away at the back. What makes this salon appealing is that is refreshingly un-sceney: no air-kissing, fuss or celebrity gossip.

Aside from the blow drys, highlighting and men's grooming taking place upstairs, the basement spa offers a delectable selection of treatments such as the Elemental Nature Facial, the Perfecting Plant Peel and the Stress-Fix Body Massage. Top of the list is definitely the Chakra Balancing Massage, which involves deep tissue massage, reflexology and energy balancing to re-order your chakras (the seven centres of spiritual power in the body), leaving you feeling collected and serene as well as very supple.

Although it's pretty difficult to make my brassy blonde hair look expensive, after a wash and blow here, it smells like a million dollars. The whole environment feels so luxurious, without being overly pretentious. I would totally recommend before a night out as a treat. People will complement you every time you whip your head and back and forth.
