BEAUTY SPOTS
There’s no shortage of places to primp in London this season. Hair stylist James Brown — a close pal of Kate Moss — has opened his first salon in the West End. The quirky space offers blowouts starting at 37 pounds, or $61.50, while a session with Brown starts at 500 pounds, or $832.

Meanwhile, those looking to escape the fashion hubbub may prefer to opt for a pampering session at the newly renovated Dorchester Spa. The opulent, 6,997-square-foot space features nine treatment rooms as well as a “spatisserie,” or a dining area offering light lunches, afternoon tea and cocktails.

Private members’ club Home House has also unveiled the sumptuous Method Spa, together with facialist Anastasia Achilleos.

Fatigued fashionistas may also like the Fashion Fix Facial, which will be available at Bliss London starting Thursday. Priced at 150 pounds, or $250, the 60-minute treatment includes an enzyme peel, extractions and a collagen mask.

FASHION EXHIBITS
Nick Knight is taking his SHOWstudio Web site to the brick-and-mortar world. A retrospective of Knight’s projects, ambitiously named “SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution,” will be staged at London Fashion Week’s new home, Somerset House. The exhibition will spotlight the site’s collaborative works with Alexander McQueen, Gareth Pugh and Liberty Ross; new fashion films, and a live photographic studio where Knight will shoot for British Vogue.

MISS SIXTY
The face of the Swinging Sixties turns 60 this year. To celebrate, London’s National Portrait Gallery will stage “Twiggy: A Life in Photographs,” showcasing more than 20 works by photographers including Cecil Beaton, Mary McCartney, Bryan Adams, and Barry Lategan, who helped to launch the model’s career in 1966 — and sustain it over four decades. “It’s really interesting to see how fashion photography and portraiture have evolved throughout my career,” said the supermodel, who was born Lesley Hornby in 1949.
