Every August and September when friends acquaintances or clients are coming to London for this and that I get asked to recommend a hairdresser for a good wash and blow dry without an exorbitant price tag and somewhere near Harrods! They all know the big 4 but don’t really want to get involved in a “number”. In the states and Europe a regular visit to the local hairdresser is neither expensive nor slow. My current fave is Paul Edmonds, 217   Brompton Road. It is not necessary to go the top stylists in the Salon as they all do a great job. Smooth and Speedy. I just love the Salon so luxurious and plushy and quiet too. Lots of room so its easy to book and there is a lovely beauty area downstairs for paws and more. But its really about atmosphere as well, quite the nicest place to go if its a first time, your dont feel your not a member of their “love-in” club. So this where I suggest we take our needy locks for glamorization. Plus taxis cruise outside all day, busses and the tube nearby – walking distance to shopping and lunching. What’s not to like.

Me, I go local mostly – to wonderful Casie in Clapham who cuts and colours at Head South,Northcote Road. I can walk there from home and she is wonderful and talented, so anySouth London fashionistas check it out.
