Slap, Snip and Dry – Headmasters, Mayfair

You may have seen my up do by Headmasters for the awards ceremony that I attended a few weeks ago. I loved it so much that I decided to head back to the salon to get my colour done. Headmasters in Mayfair is the perfect salon – a laid back atmosphere with friendly staff and lovely refreshments. I was there to see Sian who would be looking after me for the afternoon. We decided on a colour together and she set to work. Following the application, I was taken downstairs to have the colour washed out and was surprised to see the huge basement floor before my eyes. One thing I love about Headmasters is the way that one person looks after you for the duration of your appointment. The staff are skilled at everything so you don’t need to strike up different conversations with new people every half an hour.

Headmasters blow dry, Mayfair

If nothing else they give you a chance to dress up and let your hair down and the Drapers Accessories and Footwear Awards last night at the Grosvenor House Hotel was no exception.

Having never been to the hairdressers for a blow dry, I was looking forward to the post work, pre event treat. I arrived fresh from work and met Stephanie, manager of the salon, who would be making me look a whole lot more glamorous for the evening. After a quick consultation I was off to the sink for a shampoo, condition and one of the …

As a child I treasured the trips to London with my Dad and brother. A few times a year we would bundle into the car and travel for what seemed like hours to explore the Big Smoke. Each time we arrived in the city, we would take trips to Hamleys, Harrods and Harvey Nichols, followed by a walk around Knightsbridge. As we paced the streets and rode the world famous tube trains on the London Underground, I knew that this was where I wanted to be when I grew up. So when I finished college, I packed up my life and came down for a new start in a city that had inspired me for countless years. London is one of the best cities in the world and one where, even after seven years, I still feel incredibly lucky to live. There is never any excuse for boredom in such a culturally vibrant city and just when you think you have seen it all, think again, there is much more to come. London is home …
