Because Magazine’s Little Black Book is far more than your average city guide. An insider directory to London, as seen through the eyes of our friends in fashion, beauty, fitness, food and the arts – all of them, experts in their fields – it’s your go-to Where’s Where for niche and noteworthy recommendations to help you navigate and use our Capital at its best. This week, hairdresser to the stars, George Northwood, shares the inside track on the best head massage around.

"Her treatments are simply sublime!"

Where... I am completely obsessed with Nichola Joss (39 Harley Street, W1G 8QH) in London.

Why... Her incredible facials incorporate neck and head massage. 

Because... In the absence of being able to pop over to India for the ultimate in hot oil head massages, her treatments are simply sublime!

George Northwood is a maestro of all things "hair". 

Lauded for his done-but-undone signature – the likes of which has been seen on everyone who’s anyone, be it Meghan Markle or Alexa Chung – George is behind some of the best barnets known to (wo)man.

He’s the man to know in the hair department – so, for us, there was no one better equipped to answer where to find London's best head massage.
