I have very fine hair, which is typically cut in a graduated angular bob. My hairdresser has just gone back to her home country, and I am stuck. Went to a recommended local one, and she butchered my hair. 5 weeks later- another one, and another terrible job. Can anyone recommend a hairdresser in London who is very good at cutting fine, straight hair? I am desperate... Thank you
I can recommend Lino at Daniel Galvins, but he is probably out of your budget at £150 for a 30 minute appointment. I don't tip him, but always give a tenner to his assistant. I am now living in Istanbul and with blow-dries costing as little as £3 I usually give around £5 in total.
Mia at Windle and Moodie in Covent Garden. She is lovely and knows exactly what suits your face and hair. I've never had a haircut that I was truly happy with till I went to her. She isn't the cheapest, but is really good at low maintenance cuts-,if that's what you're after- So you don't have to go so often.
I had a dreadful couple of experiences ( stupid to go back) at Taylor and Taylor. I found they were more interested in trends than my life style or hair. That was a few years back and maybe their ethos he changed.
I used to go to worthingtons when I lived in london and always had a very good cut and I have thick fine hair
Sorry to hijack but who would you recommend as a hairdresser for a laidback slightly mature person like me- as I'm thinking of going down to London in the new year and thought I might get a haircut while I'm down there.
I am as you describe and would still recommend Aveda or Worthingtons in Covent Garden. Wouldn't recommend Galvin ( though have also been to Lino there, who cuts David Cameron's hair btw) because they aren't laid back enough for my taste.
I currently go to George Northwood in Wells St and recommend - but he is really £££. (Can't really afford him!).
I was thinking of Windle's as it's close to where I work - so will see if i can book Mia for a cut/shaping, seems they take 3.5 hours for a full head on top so don't think i can fit all that in on my lunch hour :-)
Hi, nelly, do let us know how you get on at Worthingtons. As I said, I used to go to Jess, but I'm sure there are other good people there.It has a nice atmosphere, I think. Stylish and friendly but not over-glitzy and 'posh' as, for me, Galvin's is.
