George Northwood’s hairdresser in a box

Fitzrovia hairdresser George Northwood – stylist to the likes of Alexa Chung, Alicia Vikander and the Duchess of Sussex – has built his 20-year career on a fuss-free, deliberately undone aesthetic. As of this month, he’s sharing the tools that will help clients replicate his signature style at home. Composed of 20 pieces – including cleansers, styling products and curling tongs – the Undone range offers sustainable solutions to problems from pollution to frizz. On creating the collection, Northwood said: “I want to show women how to achieve natural, effortless looking hair themselves. Women don’t want to look as if they’ve been to the hairdressers; they want to look like they’ve just stepped off an editorial shoot.” From £12 (UK delivery only),

Typology’s skin consultant in a box

There are 30m possible outcomes of Typology’s skin-diagnostic test. Launched after several months of research, the feature allows buyers to create a natural active skincare routine based on three main areas: ageing, oxidation factors and sebum production. Those concerned with breakouts, for example, might be prescribed the bakuchiol-based Blemish Serum, while hydration seekers could look to the 9-Ingredient Face Moisturiser. “Being a digital brand, we have to be innovative in the way we recommend products to our customers,” says founder Ning Li. “It was therefore essential to design a method that was as precise as possible.” Best of all is the packaging, which sticks to the brand’s minimalist aesthetic with an eco-friendly array of glass bottles, recycled plastic and aluminium tubes. From about £55 (international delivery),

Czech & Speake’s barber in a box

As the English satirist William Hone once said, “A good lather is half the shave.” It’s with that in mind that Czech & Speake – the Jermyn Street barbershop founded in 1978 – presents its No 88 Shaving Set. Complete with a silver-tip badger shaving brush and Mach III-blade razor, the offering is intended to turn shaving from a chore into an indulgence. Lather up with the brand’s signature soap, a mixture of bergamot, geranium, rose otto and frangipani. Each batch is milled (the process that allows soap to become smooth) seven times to ensure “absolute perfection”. £395 (international delivery),

The DIY kit has the necessary essentials for a salon-worthy pamper session, including a tea tree and pumice exfoliating scrub, the award-winning Intensive Hydrating Foot Lotion, and four pedicure tools. A step-by-step guide walks you through the methods needed to restore, protect and revitalise your nails. £79 (international delivery), Crown Affair’s hair guru in a box

After finding herself inundated with queries about her near waist-length waves, Dianna Cohen, a New York-based entrepreneur, started to chronicle her habits in a Google Doc. Two years later, she launched Crown Affair, a haircare brand founded on clean ingredients, effective formulations and handmade tools. Building up from a brush, towel and lightweight oil, The Set serves to apply Cohen’s key principles into a singular routine – one where the number of brushstrokes is just as important as the products used. A three-minute hourglass is included as “a friendly reminder to take your time”. $220 (US only),

Tata Harper’s facialist in a box

An eight-step skin regimen may seem daunting, but Tata Harper’s Med Spa Facial comes with simple-to-follow directions. Enhanced with natural ingredients, the kit promises a post-peel-like rejuvenation with an “added boost of hydration” for that sought-after dewy complexion. Begin with a double cleanse (a Korean beauty mantra), follow with a face mask, floral essence mist, resurfacing serum and moisturiser. Finish by massaging the Nutrient Face Oil onto your face and neck. The product is non-comedogenic (doesn’t block pores), so there’s no need to be wary if you have acne-prone skin. £163.55 (international delivery);
