5 must-visit London based beauty experts for a natural look

by Lorna Oakley

We started the new year with good intentions, we are bombarded by the latest beauty trends, wellness edits and more. Combining that with greater understanding and education when it comes to aesthetics, there are many options and of course many clinics. I’ve been lucky to work with some of the best and most technologically advanced beauty professionals in the UK, from my previous editorial with Nejati Clinic to Mallucci in the past few months, here are 5 more that I think are beauty must-visits for 2024.

Dr Giovanni Angiolini

Originally from Sardinia, Dr Angiolini has become a familiar face in some of the most exclusive clinics in Europe. His trademark style is one of a more subtle touch, with a more natural aesthetic, I was fortunate to catch up with him and ask him where he thought aesthetics were going.

“Aesthetic medicine is becoming more and more present in society, embracing all age groups and all genders. Unfortunately, sometimes elegance and good taste are surpassed, and vulgar, stereotyped and unrealistic models are created which in my opinion damage the image of this specialty. Unfortunately, the doctor and the cosmetic surgeon, in addition to having great professional competence, made up of years of study and practice, must have a strong artistic gift. The great aesthetic doctor is only the one who combines these two skills.”


He went on to add “The new trends in the medical aesthetic field, fortunately, go towards naturalness, towards the valorization of the patient and not towards his complete transformation, creating replicants. I have always embraced this trend, since the beginning of my profession, and I am therefore more than happy. In addition to style, the new trends focus on the increasingly massive use of regenerative medicine, with wonderful stem cells and the use of the latest generation machinery and radio frequencies to improve the quality of the skin and firm it. Aesthetic medicine, if used in the right doses and with the right professionals, is able to enormously improve our quality of life, giving us freshness and serenity”.

When in the UK, Dr Angiolini can be contacted via the Geneviv Clinic.


Following on with a focus on the natural aesthetic, I really wanted to showcase Skinworks… Where do I start? Not only is this one of the most stylish entrances, but their facials in my opinion are some of the best I have ever had the opportunity to experience.

You’ll find the flagship studio in Soho, weaving through the street food stalls and pop-ups, this is an oasis of cooling peppermint décor, quietly located away from the bustle on Peter Street. The reception area makes the perfect space to relax while waiting for your facial.

There’s an amazing menu of LED light therapy, skin peels and one of their signature facials, I was booked in with Maria for the supercharged facial, which included on top of cleansing and moisturising, there’s microdermabrasion and pore extraction (this is SO satisfying!).

Firstly, you are cocooned in blankets, then whilst half snoozing you will get THE deepest cleanse ever, whilst Maria polishes your skin and shrinks your pores. You leave with your skin glowing like never before!

Book here Skinwork.

Sophia Brows

With royalty and A-listers on her books; I was rather excited to meet the talented Sophia, whose clients include the beautiful Sabrina Elba and Maya Jama amongst others.

She has created a cult-like following and her diary opens once a month. This is by invitation only, and I found out in person exactly why the waiting list is so long.

Meeting Sophia and having my brows shaped was the epitome of luxury when it comes to a treatment like this. Her treatments are truly bespoke and you can see why her trademark natural-looking soft arches frame the faces of some of the most beautiful women out there.


It’s more than just brows; it’s about bone structure and balance. She is an expert in threading, tinting, lamination, and lash lifts.

I knew two months previously I was seeing Sophia so I hadn’t touched my brows, for those of you who know me, know I have inherited my father’s dark brows and I’m a little nervous about anyone touching them as they have unfortunately been over plucked, then micro bladed twice; not a good look without my trusty brow pencil.

Sophia is a self-confessed brow obsessive and has a skill that comes naturally and she softened my arches with a flourish of threading and tweezing followed by a slick of eyebrow gel to finish.

Bookings are by invitation only at [email protected].

Pulse Laser Clinic

I had to mention the ultra-chic Pulse Laser Clinic, I would not have known it existed if it wasn’t for Sophia (she’s based there).

Pulse Laser Aesthetic Clinic is a boutique clinic offering a unique and personalised service to our clients. Founded in 2012 by three sisters, Pulse is one of the very first clinics in London to launch the revolutionary Soprano Titanium for Laser Hair Removal.

Conveniently based just five minutes away from Selfridges, they specialise in the latest laser and skin rejuvenation treatments, they provide safe and effective treatments in a professional, and clean environment. This is what helps them deliver the superior results their clients have come to expect of them.

All of our aesthetic equipment is the latest generation and FDA-approved for specific skin conditions to ensure safety and the best results”.

Here’s more information Pulse Clinic.

Oli Brows

Perfectly placed in Fulham, with the unheard opportunity to park near her beauty studio Olibrows otherwise known as Oliwia, she’s a professional brows/lash artist and skin specialist, with 14 years of experience.

She offers specialist brow treatments including HD brows, microblading, lip blush, brow lamination, henna brows LVL lash lifts and skin treatments.

Before welcoming her little boy into the world, she was freelance. However, it became increasingly difficult to juggle freelance and dedicate quality time to making memories with her little boy. This was the perfect time to open her own beauty studio based in West London. Her main inspiration has always been her love for people, creating lashes for beautiful faces such as Ellie Golding, Rosie Fortescue and many more.

Welcoming me with a warm embrace, she lifted and darkened my lashes; opening my eyes and brightening them immediately.

I love creativity and I strongly believe Beautiful brows and lashes can make a huge difference to our face. My main focus has always been on a natural look and beautiful defined eye area”.

You can contact Oliwia here via Olibrows.

To conclude, natural beauty is here to stay and of course, the incredible beauty professionals that make this happen.
