a host of festive parties to attend we thought we’d go all out and get the mop not only cut but also coloured – living life on the edge! Our choice for such an experiment was the Sassoon salon located in the heart of Mayfair on South Molton Street.

Inside the salon the atmosphere is just as bustling as the shopping streets outside. The decor is clean, modern and white with a huge selection of staff on hand to make sure you have a drink, something to read and are sitting comfortably. Neville was our colourist for the afternoon and we decided on a vegetable rinse two shades darker than our natural colour with purple tones. Scissor wise we were with Ida who has been at Sassoon for 12 years, so knows her stuff and after a full consultation we were happy to put our hair in her hands.

With the die washed out and a treatment applied the cutting commenced. Blow dry, straighteners, more snipping and we were left with a shiny, silky new ‘do with a rich colour and thick bangs. The highlight of the cut has to be the experienced staff who know exactly what they are talking about and actually listen to what you want so you’re guaranteed to leave with a smile on your face.

Sassoon is the perfect salon to visit if you need a new do – it’s electric atmosphere will have you geared up and ready to party in no time!
