In partnership with Taylor Taylor London
I have spent a small fortune on cutting, dying and blowdrying my hair over the past 10 years, that I don’t even know what colour it is anymore. There were a few years in my late 20s when I tried to scrimp on finding a good hairdresser… oh, how it haunted me. I had to walk around with an orange tie-dye explosion on my head for the next six months, and it wasn’t cheap to correct. So when there’s a hair salon that is guaranteed to leave your hair feeling silky smooth and leave you feeling relaxed… there’s simply no option but to try it out.
Taylor Taylor London has three sparkling salons in London which are run by experts who are on hand to precisely coif your follicles. Taylor Taylor has been open since 2003, and offers up more than just a place to get your hair cut – it’s a place to relax, take in the stunning interiors and perhaps even enjoy a cocktail. Four hours in the chair never sounded so good!
What’s so special about these salons?
The Taylor Taylor London salons are designed to feel like a relaxed members’ club. Every single one of the services and techniques are personalised to the individual. Enjoy a complimentary consultation and then indulge in one of the salon’s famous colouring sessions. The balayage is one of the best in the city.
The teams of expert stylists, colourists and technicians not only work on your hair, but they also work on photoshoots for international publications like Vogue and Grazia, as well as major catwalk events for labels including Chanel and Roland Mouret, and style a host of celebrities and influencers… so you know you’re in good hands.
There’s a lot of focus on the glamour, but there’s just as much attention paid to sustainability, too. Each salon is equipped with eco-shower heads, low-energy bulbs, vintage furniture, and B-Corp accredited Davines hair colour and products.

Where are the salons?
Lucky for us, there are three Taylor Taylor salons in London. The cream of the crop has to be the flagship Shoreditch branch, which comes complete with a cocktail bar. The salon is inspired by the faded grandeur of 18th-century France, with Rococo interiors filled with vintage pieces and period finds. You’ll be offered a cocktail from the bar and then you can recline on a vintage chaise longue to soak up the ambience.
Each room is individually designed – from the Grand Cutting Room, lit with oversized Murano glass chandeliers, to the subterranean golden washrooms – to provide you with a truly inspiring space.
The same goes for the other salons. There’s the extravagant gold room in the Notting Hill salon and there’s a final floral flourish for the salon in the iconic department store Liberty. Wherever you find yourself, just sit back, relax and take it all in.
