is an independent salon located in just off High Holborn, on the famous Chancery Lane. We popped in for a quick snip to check out the services. Inside the decor is simple, unfussy and clean. After a quick consultation with our stylist we were washed and given a trim and reshape.

Once the chopping stopped we were treated to a blow dry using a method we hadn’t seen for a good 10 years – placing metal round brushes into our main before blasting them with heat. The result was a little too 70s for us, a mass of volume with big curls – a’la Farrah Fawcett.

Hair bobble in and safely home we re-washed our hair and are happy to report that the cut, once restyled, was actually fairly decent – the stylist had listened to what we’d wanted and the end result was an old round healthier do. Plus for only £35 for a cut and blow dry in Central London it’s not bad value either.

The salon also offers a selection of beauty treatments which is great if you’re looking for a quick pedicure in between meetings.
