    First to Review

    Just like its name this salon is So Fabulous!! I've been getting my Bio Sculpture nails done here for a few months now and can highly recommend Gary and his team - my nails always look beautiful now!! Gary really does know his stuff and explains the whole process from start fo finish. Everyone at the salon is so friendly and it really does make your visit totally relaxing and enjoyable.

    I'm definitely a client for life now and recommend So Fabulous to everyone, so give them a try - you won't be disappointed!

    Hi Im reviewing this on my boyfriends account as he is already a member.
    My names Mira and was originially introduced to 'So Fabulous' through 'Biosculpture UK',having used this system before I knew how great it was.Also having so many bad experiences with nail bars using drills and harsh chemicals, I knew it was time for the good stuff.
    Entering 'So fabulous' is like a gentle,scented haven away from the hustle & bustle of the city.The aroma of aromatherapy candles gently wafts through the air leaving you instantly at ease.
    The salon itself is very well maintained,tastefully decorated and very clean.
    There is real attention to detail (check out the little biscuits you get with your coffee!)
    The owner Gary is incredibly knowledgable of all beauty products and procedures,don't be intimated that he's a guy..he is warm approachable and easy to talk to.
    My therapist Lisa is also incredibly knowledgable about all things beauty,what she doesn't know isn't worth knowing!
    Lisa is also friendly and warm and very good at what she does.
    So far I've had the wonderful 'Bio Sculpture' nail system a pedicure and eyebrow shape,I'm very satisfied with all my treatments and cant wait to try a facial.
    Visiting 'So fabulous is like seeing your mates but with treatments!.I can highly recommend this little gem of a place!

    Booked in for a Decleor Aroma Full body Massage and pedicure after my wife told me about this salon. All I'm going to say is pure bliss!! Finally found a salon that does not look feminine, and made to feel very welcomed. The decor inside is relaxing and I didn't feel shy walking in as the front is frosted. I have rebooked for my back waxing before we fly out on our holidays. Thank you to a great team and I will be back!

    So Fabulous is just that...so fabulous!

    My first visit was about 4 months ago, having found the salon on the web looking at reviews like this. Since then, I had 5 bio sculpture treatments with Gary which have meant that without wanting to show off - my nails are absolutely amazing by now, having always been brittle and uneven until I discovered So Fabulous, Gary & Biosculpture.

    Because I really like this small salon with its down to earth atmosphere, I have also branched out into having Brazilian waxes with Elenie. I was a little nervous at first, as it was my first time waxing, but she was very gentle and made me feel so at ease. I was very pleased with the results and I have already booked my next appointment.

    Both treatments were done to the highest standards with market leading products. Above all, I always leave the place feeling very relaxed as all staff are easy to talk to and so are the other clients. They also serve very yummy buscuits and tea / coffe at So Fabulous, what more could a girl want after a busy day in the office?

    I have recommended the place to a close friend who has already become addicted to having confidence boosting shiny red nails. If I had to sum up why So Fabulous is such a great salon I'd say: superb service, lovely people and five star execution of treatments at affordable prices.

    I found So Fabulous by contacting Bio Sculpture when I fancied giving my nails a pamper. I felt like I had been friends with the staff since forever. They were chatty, sweet, very understanding of my wants and needs to be able to to get the best out of my treatment. They gave me tips-a-plenty without being patronising or giving me a sales pitch. The treatment was very reasonably priced and my Bio Sculpture nails look beautiful and natural- I am very much looking forward to going back again soon.

    Day 4 of Biosculpture nails and they still look as immaculate as the day the gel was applied. Am a convert and there's no way I'll get them done anywhere else. It's such a lovely salon; the guys who run it deserve every good review written here. You're instantly made to feel at home, there's no hard sell, they give you good advice and tips and then, on top of all that, you come out with immaculate nails! I couldn't recommend So Fabulous enough. Already looking forward to my next appointment

    When I came to the UK for the first time I was truly shocked and scared of the high prices and low quality beauty services various good (posh?) beauty salons across London offered. Then I discovered So Fabulous and trully, I felt just fabulous the moment I entered the salon for the first time. I have been going there for 2 years and I don't have one bad thing to say about the salon, the treatments and the beauty specialists that work there. I have always gone out very happy after each waxing -, eye brow shaping -, pedicure  and (my absolute favourite and 'monthly must') Biosculpture Gel Manicure appointment. My nails look SO SO FABULOUS and I keep getting compliments for every colour I try out. At this point in time I don't even bother thinking about which colour would suit me best, as Gary knows exactly what I like and I trust him (and the rest of the fabulous crew) completely. The prices are probably the best in the whole of London (and I am talking from an experience of blank bank accounts) and each and every customer is treated like a king/queen! In fact, I enjoy going there so much, I will call them now to book my next appointment. My nails look soo happy all of a sudden!
