“I have personally known Barbara Southwell for about 16 years. I can guarantee she is definitely the best beautician I have ever come across. All her treatments are fantastic executed with enormous care and professionalism. Her treatment room in Wimbledon is a sanctuary of calm and is always also very clean and comfortable. Her prices for her treatments are more than extremely reasonable.Her clients are always happy with the treatments they receive.I feel very lucky to have met her so many years ago now and though I have travelled extensively throughout the world nothing compares to her!” Ella Kellerher

“I must be Barbara’s oldest client. I first started seeing her in Dubai 17 years ago, and when I came back to the UK I was pleased to find she had opened her own salon here. Just as well, because having been looked after by Barbara I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else!” Marlies Weston

“Barbara is a wonderful beautician. Meticulous and attentive, Barbara always gives so much time and attention to all her clients, with her fabulous treatments. It is always a real treat to visit her and I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else!” Judy Luddington, client for over 15 years!

“Barbara gives the best facials and treatments we’ve had anywhere, and believe me as a family we’ve tried a few over the years! She is extremely thorough and has really made a difference to all of our skin. The Crystal Clear treatment has been fantastic for anti ageing and we love all the Matis products. I would recommend Barbara to anyone!” Eileen, Sophie, Rebecca and Alex Goldschmidt

“Barbara is the most talented beauty therapist I have come across in my many years of sampling treatments around the world. She tailors her treatments so that they suit the client perfectly and after one of her two hour facials my skin looks radiant for days. I cannot recommend her highly enough.” Lindsay Laing

“I have been having regular facials with Barbara and can say without a doubt that Barbara’s facials are the best I have ever experienced. Her technique and professional approach are outstanding. She uses the best quality products which leave you looking glowing and healthy. I feel relaxed the moment I walk in to her lovely treatment room which is quiet, warm and comfortable. I have had many other treatments apart from the facials and always find Barbara meticulous in her work. My husband also goes to her regularly for aromatherapy massages and again Barbara excels in that department. I have and will continue to recommend Barbara to my friends and family” Viviane and Peter Slaski

“I have been a client of Barbara’s for the last 7 years. Barbara is a very professional and expert beautician. Her touch on your skin is soft, gentle and expert. A visit to her haven in Raynes Park will leave you feeling relaxed and with glowing and fresh skin. She is very generous with her time and you never feel that that your treatment has been rushed. A value for money experience, I would like to visit her once a week if I could.” Barbara Staruch

“I have been using Barbara for my CACI and Crystal Clear treatments on a monthly basis for over 8 years. Barbara has a lovely calm manner and never rushes her facials…inevitably I fall asleep under her delicate and soothing touch! My skin always looks amazing after her treatments and I look forward to my monthly visits with great anticipation. I heartily recommend Barbara…you will not be disappointed.” Tracey di Lorenzo – Wimbledon
