With so many hairdressing salons in London, sometimes it can be hard to seperate the good from the bad. Lisa Hutton reviews the Anthony Labán Salon in Wandworth to give her verdict.
Visiting the Anthony Labán salon, I knew I was presenting them with a challenge. My hair had recently started to resemble a scarecrow and to say it needed a rethink was an understatement. It was a meelee of straggly dry spit ends and horrendous brassy tones – I needed expert help.
Situated by Wandsworth Common, I felt a little nervous as I walked through the salons doors for my pre-treatment consultation. I didn’t want this to be another bad hair situation where I leave the salon meekly nodding and lying that I’m happy with my new look. However, I needn’t have worried, I was instantly welcomed into the stylish salon, with its soothing buttery hues and relaxed interior finishing; this clearly was a space for pampering, putting my initial worries at ease.
Speaking with Taelor, a senior hair stylist, we approached my bad hair situation head-on and came up with a plan to revive my lacklustre locks to healthy flowing tresses. Taelor was very inquisitive throughout the whole consultation, it was clear she wanted to ensure that the styling and treatments were the right fit for my lifestyle and hair type.
Taylor and I decided that we should do a full overhaul to get my hair looking its best. My treatment plan consisted of a full colour correction treatment, haircut and luxurious conditioning process which left my hair feeling silky soft and fully restored to its natural glory. It was refreshing when Taelor listened to my plea to not cut off all my length and kept trimming to a minimum, whilst also making sure that my hair was left with no pesky split-ends or dryness.
To finish off my appointment, Taelor gave me an expert blow-dry with staying power. Over the next few days I found myself catching my appearance in the mirror and admiring my new glowing bouncy locks with childish glee, a far cry from the old me with dull and dry brassy hair.
