hairdresser in London!

SystemSystem Posts: 39,059 Administrator
For all of you looking for a good hairdresser in London, I know of this italian guy, named Luca (I don't have his last name) that works at Vidal Sassoon salons.
I'm not sure if he still is there, since last time I had my hair done by him was 2 years ago and at the time he was alternating work between London and Italy.
He did a very good job and advice me not to get my hair quemically treated but to use the phytology products (even though we were at a VS salon, he didn't try to sell me any of their stuff).
You could try calling and asking for him at the 60 South Molton Street, tel. 0171-4918848.
Do keep in mind VS salons can be quite expensive.

    Frederika I have some Phytologie products I can share with you! (I went to France 2 weeks ago). This brand goes well with your hair?

    frederikaeskes, thanks a bunch biggrin.gif, i will call and find out if he still works there, what type of hair do you have?

    Pytologie PhytoSpecific, is the brand for curlies - and they are much much cheaper in France!..

    From what I've been reading I have 3b/4aish hair. Lots of it and long (before shrinkage redface.gif).

    I do use Pytologie PhytoSpecific products. LOVE them, too bad they are so expensive. If they had a reasonable price, I would probably use them dayly and not only in special occasions.
    I buy them in Belgium, I know their cheaper there than in London or The Netherlands, but can't tell about France.

    Let me know if Luca is still working in London!

    frederikaeskes, i went to Paris back in March and saw the Phytologie Pyto 9 for like 8 pounds cheaper..so i bought 3 tubes of that stuff biggrin.gif

    It's much cheaper over there, that is where the products are from so it makes sense..

    I just got back from Prague, have not had a chance to call the hair dresser will do this week though..

    Oh, yes it sounds like you have my same type hair which is good!

    Ali thank you and good luck okay!
  • SystemSystem Posts: 39,059 Administrator
    Ali, how did it go?

  • SystemSystem Posts: 39,059 Administrator
    spanish curls, thanks for asking! it went really well... she has lovely short frizz-free curls herself, and she did it really nicely. she cut it all one length at the back, with shorter bits around the front to break up any one-length monotony. she dried it in twists, didn't come near me with a hairdryer or brush, and it looked really good when it was finished!! this was the first time for about two years that i have walked out of a hairdressers 100% happy with the cut and finish. i would definitely recommend her.

    i went out to a couple of parties last night, and EVERYONE i spoke to complimented my hair. i had complete strangers coming up to me and telling me how fab they thought it was. THAT is what i call a result!! biggrin.gif

    what really surprised me was that she only put 2 products on it (!) - aveda confixor while it was wet, and then a spot of anti-humectant pomade when dry. it looked great with that combo, but felt a little crunchy, and not as soft as usual, so i don't think i'll be giving up my bouncy creme just yet wink.gif
  • SystemSystem Posts: 39,059 Administrator
    That is great!..just have a few questions then, what is your hair type? and how much was the hairdresser? was she reasonable?

  • SystemSystem Posts: 39,059 Administrator
    hi spanish! smile.gif
    i am a 3b - same as you i think.
    my cut cost £46.50 - toni & guy are £43 so not much different. it's a lot, but i'd rather pay that and get a good cut rhan pay £30 for a bad one...
    let me know if you go - i work very near the salon so perhaps we could meet up! smile.gif
