Whether it’s about a special event or a great every day look, your hair style is part of your unique personality, and always a great opportunity to spoil yourself. If you fancy a glamorous styling session in London anytime soon and don’t know where to start, now you do! Presenting the nicehair.org top 10 hair salons in London, based on reviews and ratings accumulated online.
Saco, Goodge Street
‘Beauty first’ is their motto, and stylists will put their ego and ideas aside if they won’t make you look beautiful. Book a session with co-founder Richard Ashford for an amazing talk about face shapes, proportions and hair health!
Paul Edmonds, Knightsbridge
Probably the best choice when it comes to cutting and coloring. The staff is very friendly and organized, and you may be able to be booked on the same day you request their services.
Atherton Cox, Marylebone
Perfect for natural-looking hair and eyelash extensions. Men’s Hairdresser of the Year award-winner Desmond Murray offers amazing haircuts and re-designs for gentlemen.
The Spa and Barber at Alfred Dunhill, Mayfair
Despite feeling a bit overwhelmed entering the luxurious Bourdon House, you’ll receive an unpretentious welcome that will make you feel like home. Gentlemen’s haircuts start at a mere £50, which is surprisingly affordable for a high-end Central London salon.
Brooks and Brooks, Holborn
This award-winning salon offers great value, with haircuts starting at £35 and free restyles on Mondays and Tuesdays (with a small charge to cover for hair dye, if you request coloring).
Stuart Phillips, Covent Garden
A relaxed, friendly environment, choice of many well-known modern figures like Jamie Oliver and Ivana Trump. Beautifully decorated, prompt bookings and excellent, professional staff.
Gentlemen’s Tonic, Mayfair
If you fancy a modern, but classic look in favor of the rather eccentric hairstyle experiments, visit this nicely decorated salon in Mayfair. You and your hair dresser will have your own private booth and you can opt out for a TV channel of your choice during the standard 40-minute cut and blow-dry.
Joe & Co, Soho
Joe & Co are well-known for their friendly service and long establishment in the business. The location is high-end and classy, but not abundant in luxury. The salon offers hair treatments, cuts and wet shaves for gents only.
Windle & Moodie, Covent Garden
Windle & Moodie is a friendly, welcoming salon with excellent, non-pretentious service, so don’t feel intimidated by its clientele (Kate Moss, Drew Barrymore, Gwyneth Paltrow). You can get a speed-style haircut in your lunch break for only £25.
John Frieda, Fitzrovia
Ideal for ladies who are also looking to have their nails done or enjoy a delicious snack and refreshments while getting a fabulous hair style. It is one of the best high-end salons in London.
