Widely acclaimed as one of London’s most well-appointed salons, Nyumba is a regular fixture in the fashion and beauty pages of the world’s media.
Filled with flowers, our lifestyle salon has been harmoniously balanced by Feng Shui consultants to create a serene ambience that lifts the spirits. The striking African décor was inspired by Michael’s childhood in Tanzania. Nyumba means ‘home’ in Swahili, and we aim to create a welcoming environment where guests can relax and indulge all their senses.

With its own entrance, The Diamond Vault is a well-kept secret among VIPs, from rock stars to royalty. The ultimate beauty escape, with the benefit of absolute privacy.

Our premises are non-smoking, but clients are welcome to bring their children and even their pets.

Nyumba also offers a WiFi connection to all our customers.

In keeping with our environmentally friendly ethos, at Nyumba we use Aveda hair and beauty products, made from pure flower and plant essences.

Nyumba works for charity
At Nyumba, our holistic approach to health and beauty extends to our philosophy of life. That’s why we have pledged to donate a percentage of profits to a charity for underprivileged children in Africa.

Nyumba also supports Barnardo's charity for Children.
