If you’re after the chop in Deptford, there’s one place you should head for and that’s The Bohemians. As the name suggests, it’s boho vibes all the way with lots of exposed brick, vintage and repurposed furnishings (in fact 80% of everything in the salon is recycled and their working towards making that 100% by looking at ways to recycle hair), and plenty of foliage.

Inclusivity is also big for The Bohemians; they have gender-neutral pricing, so you’re paying based on the work and on the stylist’s time, and they’ve recently introduced the option to book a silent appointment for those who find it difficult to chat during haircuts or for those who just want some quiet time in the chair. Whether you go for a silent appointment or not, the Bohemians has a relaxed vibe and everyone is super friendly so it’s a very chill place to be. You can chat if you want or dive into a stack of magazines like we did whilst our colour was doing its thing.

We went in for a full head tint to refresh our flat colour and bring some much-need shine back to our locks. They use Oway colour at the salon, which offers 100% colour payoff and grey coverage whilst also being vegan, ammonia-free and made with biodynamic and organic ingredients. Our stylist Saivo blended two shades to add depth and mimic our natural colour more closely, and he also trimmed off all the dead ends that had been clinging on for far too long, leaving us with healthier and bouncier hair.
