From Cucumba – The Urban Pit Stop, Soma Aveda, Cowshed Carnaby and Lulus Beauty Boutique, Louise Jones has now walked off on her own and opened up at Essensuals Hairdressing stop in Covent Garden. L Beauty Therapy is utterly heavenly. Louise Jones is utterly therapeutic. I have no words to explain my experience there. Well I have a few words. I’m rarely lost for those. I tootled down there last night. Welcomed by Louise herself, I was escorted downstairs, below the cuts and snips. Here Jones has set up a little room filled with white, candles, relaxing music and sweet sweet smells. With a cup of tea and plenty of time to de-robe, I stripped off and snuggled under the beautiful white towels. I was having a full body massage and using Organic Neal’s Yard products, boy did I get one. I felt like I had done an intense yoga class, where I was taken into the deep depths of another world. I fell asleep for a bit. She worked every knot. She twisted my arms in the most satisfying ways. She laid a hot towel on my back which felt like she was pouring melted gold on me or something. Ok I know I am getting poetic. But it was incredible. Absolutely incredible. I cannot fault the experience. I was distraught when it was over and I felt so refreshed afterwards. There she gave me a glass of water. I hugged her goodbye and off I went. She is worth every penny. And she does manicures, pedicures, waxing, facials and all. She’s going to have a queue going down the street.
