A red-carpet makeover is usually the sort of high-end beauty treatment reserved for film stars and celebrities. Daniel Galvin at Corinthia Hotel London now makes these services available to all, in plush surroundings, ready for the approaching party and awards seasons.

Guests at Daniel Galvin at Corinthia Hotel London are welcomed with a glass of Laurent-Perrier champagne and then begin their beauty consultation, looking at their personal style and the look that they need for the occasion. Often, people understand what they are aiming for in terms of stars that they have seen at the cinema, and so there is a digital library with over 100 films that they can use for inspiration. To enable you to truly feel the part, the location's superb interiors include lighting technology that re-creates a film set atmosphere. For the film stars amongst you, the equipment includes Skype links to TV screens so that when visiting actresses are in town, their directors can instruct the hairdressers and make-up artists at The Red Carpet via live video link, telling them exactly how they want the look to work.

Daniel Galvin says, "Hair is a woman's ultimate beauty asset. It's the only thing that she never takes off." In fact, hair care is a fundamental part of the Red Carpet Make-Over. Guests receive a conditioning treatment to create the red carpet shine, followed by an appropriate blow dry and finish, by Daniel Galvin hair specialists. Staff include a manicurist, while there is a complete food and drinks menu available. Enjoy moments of relaxation with the movie library.

The Red Carpet is the latest innovation in Daniel Galvin's long and glittering hair styling career. He has been a hairdresser for the whole of his life, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. In the 1960s, Daniel was the first hair stylist to realize that hair colour could be creative rather than just functional. He developed his famous 'crazy colours,' and later worked on the concept of hair colours for an absolutely natural appearance, reintroducing henna in combination with other natural ingredients such as coffee, lemon, egg yolk and hot red wine. He also pioneered the idea of considering eye colour and skin tone when planning hair tone. He has worked in cinema, and introduced professional hair colour services to Japan and the Far East. In 2006, HM the Queen awarded him an OBE for his contribution to hair colour and the hair dressing industry.

The Red Carpet by Daniel Galvin is available exclusively at Corinthia Hotel London. The basic package includes exclusive use of the Daniel Galvin Ultimate Make-Over Room, a personalized hair consultation, deep conditioning treatment, red carpet blow dry, finish and manicure, and a glass of Laurent-Perrier champagne. The Red Carpet is available by appointment from Monday to Saturday, 8.00 a.m. to 8.00 p.m., until 31 March 2013.
