Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This photogenic salon lies within a Georgian townhouse that's both Grade II-listed and the only original building left on Great Queen Street. Behind its handsome exterior is an airy, stylish space, offering hair and beauty treatments (the latter including manicures, waxing and the like), as well as an academy for aspiring hairdressers, over four floors.

Ena has an eco-friendly philosophy – something that's reflected in everything from its tastefully upcycled decor to its use of sumptuous organic hair and beauty brands. A cut, colour and blowdry (from £59 – Ed’s note: from £67 as of June 2018) was handled by the expert team with flair – they left my straggly mop looking sleek and healthy, and smelling amazing (thanks to deliciously-scented Davines products, of which this place is the flagship stockist). 

Despite its vast size – and proximity to a rather grey, corporate patch of Holborn – the salon has a cosy, neighbourhood-y vibe. I was offered homemade cookies baked by one of the styling team on my visit, and staff were relaxed and friendly. A very welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city outside.
