salon spy | beauty & melody
As they’ve been in London for five years and now have six stores across town, it’s fair to say Beauty & Melody know their stuff when it comes hair and beauty. Their flagship salon is known as the place to go for Russian Tape hair extensions so we swung by to try them out. For those who aren’t familiar with Russian Tape extensions, they’re considered the safest and most effective semi permanent extensions on the market. Made of real Russian hair, they look and feel natural and are practically unnoticeable. They’re also easy to manage and you can go to gym or go swimming just fine with them in.
You start with a consultation, where you chat with the experts to establish whether you’re looking for volume or length along with that all important colour match. We opted to create length instead of volume so chose the 20 inch extensions, although it’s worth noting that the stylist is able to cut them to your desired length. As for the fitting, you won’t have to clear your diary weeks in advance because it only takes an hour to fit a full head of extensions.
They last six to twelve weeks once in, and the stylists are full of tips and tricks to keep them looking fresh. Prices vary depending on the look you’re after but the extensions come with a year warranty and you can have them refitted for half the original cost.
