The house of
In an elegant Georgian townhouse spread across five floors, The House is, quite literally, the ‘home’ of Charles Worthington. Situated in the heart of Covent Garden, The House is exquisitely designed, retaining the structure of the original town house – The Drawing Room allows clients to relax before and after their appointment on over-sized comfortable sofas and The Conservatory with all its natural daylight is the buzzy Colour and Cut Zone. The Dining Room, visible from outside, is a more formal Cut and Styling room whilst the Dressing Room is perfect for group visits or parties. The House offers our clients a welcoming, ‘at home’ salon space in which to relax and be beautified – indeed, many would prefer not to leave.
