Named by beauty editors as one of the country's leading therapists Arezoo is best known for her radiant facial and virtually painless Brazilian waxing techniques.
Her facials are loved by celebrities and are featured in the press year after year. A pioneer in her field Arezoo was one of the first to bring Brazilian waxing to British shores and she has used the increasingly popular threading technique for over 25 years.
The secret beauty book
Arezoo's salong is so discreet we can't even print the exact address. It's like being in someone's rather elegant home, with treatments taking place in the drawing room. There's no fuss, no fanfare - just simple straightforward waxing, as fast as you like and practically pain-free, with ice cubes to take out the sting and masses of chatter to distract you from the whole ordeal. Early start? She's up and waxing before most of us are out of bed. Working late? She's working later.
Six of the best: facialists
Kaviani's three-hour pampering treatment and 20 years' experience under her beauty belt sets her apart from the facialist pack. Whether it’s because of the two American cosmetic lines she uses - Cosmediz and Ayur Medic - or the gentle yet effective blueberry, raspberry or pomegranate peels she's known for, when in London, Hollywood's biggest names always visit her discreet Knightsbridge salon.
Top three anti ageing facials
Based in Knightsbridge, SW1, Arezoo Kaviani's facials are an A-list secret and use the LA product line Ayur-Medic. A machine is used to help a collagen serum to be absorbed deep into the skin, leaving it plump, glowing and hydrated. £175 for 120 minutes
Arezoo is well known for her pain free Brazilian waxing. She applies warm organic wax to the hair and covers it with small strips of cloth. When the wax hardens sufficiently, the cloth is pulled off quickly to remove hair up from the roots.
Arezoo is the original. No one had heard of Brazilian waxing before she arrived on our shores. (Almost) painless perfection every time. Arezoo is also a beautiful inside and out, it is an absolute pleasure to visit her lovely salon.
I have been seeing Arezoo for waxing for over 20 years - so long in fact I hardly have any hair anymore! However the prospect of not needing my 6 weekly fix is unthinkable. Unlike most people who dread going for a wax I positively look forward to it - the warmth of the salon, Arezoo and her team make the visit an uplifting experience. I always leave feeling happy as well as hair free. Quite simply I can't imagine life without Arezoo.
I can't remember the first time I met Arezoo - it's that long ago! She's a wonderful multi-tasking therapist who excels in every area of beauty treatments. From her superb facials which leave you glowing and rejuvenated like her A-list clientele, to her super-skilful waxing, which has actually lulled me to sleep. I'm happy to have her in London...you're not allowed to ever leave!

Arezoo uses the technique of threading; a thin cotton thread is doubled, then twisted. It is then rolled over areas of unwanted hair, plucking the hair at the follicle level. Unlike tweezing, where single hairs are pulled out one at a time, threading can remove short lines of hair.
It provides precise control in shaping eyebrows and is gentler on the skin. Arezoo uses the mouth method, the fastest and most precise.
Have known Arezoo for 15 years and am impressed by her professionalism, her discretion and her advice on beauty. Arezoo and her team are definitely on my speed-dial list and can be relied upon to fix all manner of beauty emergencies!
