The London Hair Salons The CF Team Trust With Their Tresses

The best London hair salons offer tailored consultations, long-lasting colour and face-flattering cuts that will have you booking in time and time again.

Whether you are searching for a quick trim or a complete style makeover, these are the London hair salons and hair experts that the CF team trust to care for their tresses in the capital.

1) Headspace by Adam Reed, Covent Garden

“I don’t think anything could sum up the atmosphere at Adam Reed’s new flagship salon any better than the leading hairstylist’s own tagline, ‘our scissors are ready, the kettle is on.’ Far from some hair salons having a rather clinical feel, this is a cosy and relaxed affair where laughter is as guaranteed as a brilliant hair cut. There’s no ‘copy, paste’ approach here either. Instead of prescribing to trends or traditional techniques where they might not get the best results, all the fabulous team are trained in ‘instinctive cutting’, so the finish product makes the most of your hair type and face shape.” Becki Murray, beauty editor

2) Limoz Logli, Chelsea

“King of colour transformations, Limoz Logli is your man for all of your hair colour needs. What he doesn’t know about colour isn’t worth knowing, with the ability of prolonging the gap between appointments longer and longer. Limoz manages to achieve that natural “sunkissed” look without having the sun and his technique keeps your hair looking fresh and natural as it grows us and would otherwise start to reveals your base colour or greys. The salon specialises in blow dries too so don’t leave without one.” Sheena Bhattessa, founder

3) Nicola Clarke at John Frieda, Oxford Circus

“Hair colourist John Clark is the man I trust to give my hair a seasonal reboot, adding shine and masking any greys. Working out of the stylish Nicola Clarke at John Frieda salon on Margaret Street, John is known for his incredible eye for colour and effortlessly transforms my hair from lacklustre to a rich, deep brunette – plus, he’s the cheeriest hairdresser in town. Afterwards, I always ask for the lovely Annie to blow-dry my hair – she’s super quick and I know I’ll leave looking my best.” Lucy Halfhead, content and partnerships director

4) House of Keune by Bloom, Holborn

“I see Kate at The House of Keune by Bloom, a salon that has just opened its flagship space in Holborn. I love the open plan, light-filled space and the quality of hair colour lasts much longer than other brands I’ve used.” Gemma Louise Deeks, fashion editor

5) Larry King Hair, South Kensington

“If you’ve had the same hairstyle for what seems like forever, or find yourself low on confidence when it comes to discussing new ideas once you’re in the hairdresser’s chair, a consultation with celebrity favourite Larry King will revolutionise both how your hair looks and how you feel about it too. Plus, he is renowned in the industry for being the king of curls. I’m about to embark on an adventure back to blonde and I know I’ll be in the safest hands at his South Kensington salon.” Becki Murray, beauty editor

6) Aveda Lifestyle Salon and Spa, Covent Garden

“Aveda has had its flagship outpost near Seven Dials for over 20 years, and its still one of the most modern and expansive salon spaces in central London. Mirroring the brand’s haircare offering, sustainability is at its heart – from the furnishings to conscious water consumption – as is thoughtful inclusivity: there’s even a privacy room for individuals who wear head coverings or need a quieter hair cut experience. Don’t leave without booking in for a scalp analysis consultation, as it could transform how you treat your tresses. Plus, if you want to turn your appointment into a full pampering experience, there’s a full spa menu including massages, manicures, facials and blow dries too.” Katie Silcox, deputy editor 

7) Shag! London, Bayswater

“Following the obligatory home-bleaching of my hair during lockdown, my hair was in utter disrepair. Joe and April of SHAG! London took my hair from a shapeless, bleached mess, to luscious, 90’s style, chocolate locks, and I’m forever grateful to them for restoring my hair confidence. Plus, they offer a full B corp product range, that will suit your every hair need.” Lauren O’Donoghue, editorial assistant
