How many times have you been to the hairdresser, felt super nervous in the chair and then hated your hair when you came out? That used to happen to me all the time, that is until I found the wonderful Colette at Charles Worthington.
I have blogged about my experience last year at the House of Charles Worthington here, when they took me from my dark blonde/caramel ombre to a fabulous bright, light blonde without it feeling overly dry or damaged. With my hair turning dull again, I popped back down to see Colette, this time at the London Percy St branch.
The Percy St branch is a lot more open-plan than the House of Charles Worthington but still with the bright, plush sofas and friendly staff offering drinks and snacks when you walk through the door.
Trying to be healthy, I resisted the champagne and salmon blinis on offer (my favourite canape!) and sipped on water as Colette and I caught up. As my roots desperately needed touching up, we agreed that she would apply the same light blonde and beige blonde colours as before just on the roots (so as to protect the rest of the hair) by taking fine strands in each foil and painting the colour on.
Within 45 minutes my whole head was packed with foils and glinting underneath the lights, so I settled down with some magazines whilst the colour developed. It was then onto the hair wash and back in the chair for a trim. After a bad experience at Uni when a trainee hairdresser cut far too much of my hair off, I am very protective of my hair and am always keen to keep it growing. I feel in such safe hands with Colette as she really knows her stuff and I don’t even need to tell her of any hair concerns before she has spotted it and addressed it, so I let her trim as much as she thinks is necessary off (usually about an inch) before she blow dries and tongs my hair.
I’m always so happy after my appointments here, so much so that I have asked Colette to do my hair for my wedding day! If you are searching for a good London salon and have the money, then I don’t think you can go wrong with Charles Worthington.
Has anyone else had any good experiences here? Or has any other London salons to recommend?
