I have long hair and currently got to a Hob salon near my home in north west london. I think they are really good at cutting hair however considering i have a simple cut (no layers or anything) it is very expensive i also feel that when they blowdry it, it looks awful all straight and manky. I would much rather go somewhere where they give it a trim dry or wet and go home after cutting even if it means it is wet. Do you know anywhere that is good in North west london.

just on the back of High St Ken, so pretty central

I always go to Chinatown. 1st Cut or Taichung Wah or Rose Hair Salon. No fuss quick cut around 15 pounds a go. Don't know how they are with long hair but I always have the "as short as possible without looking like a boy" cut and always leave happy. smile

John at Johnny's on Chatsworth Road in Clapton is great. Though it may be a trek for you.

I can thoroughly recommend Snippers, 76 Green Lanes (corner with North Circular, near Palmers Green). Good hairdressers and brilliant prices.

Hair by Fairy, Neals Yard Covent Garden £13 flat rate, no booking and no frills. They will dry it for you if you want (same price). You cant choose who sdoes it but Ive been going for over a year now, so 5 or 6 cuts and all were fine.

That's handy sausage. I was going to recommend someone but thinking it would be a little too difficult to find for you.
I used to go to a great guy who left his salon and opened his own - Ho Hair - 1 Fairhazel Gardens. It's tiny and not sure about prices now but you could ring. He wouldn't bat an eye about a quick cut.
I think alot of places that I've been to recently cater for mums and are used to time(and money) constraints and do quick cuts. I've often left a salon with wet highlighted/ wet cut hair as need to pick up DC.

Blow drying my hair is a waste of time for me. I grin and bear it.

Bojangles used to be popular on West End Lane.
