Urban Retreat to be replaced with company-owned salon in Harrods

London luxury department store Harrods is opening an in-house hair a beauty salon next month, ending its fifteen-year partnership with Urban Retreat.

The salon will open at the end of April in the existing Urban Retreat space on the store’s fifth floor and will offer nail services, facials, hair removal and waxing, and will have an on-site hammam.

Harrods said it will make “substantial investments” over the following months to provide an “industry-leading luxury service proposition to customers.”

Urban Retreat founder George Hammer plans to focus on expanding the salon concept into other sites.

Harrods will soon begin work on the expansion of its Beauty Hall over two floors, adding new beauty retail experiences.
