This fortnight’s Salon Spy by Abbi Tanton
If you’re in need of a new hair salon now you’re at university, I would definitely recommend Guy Christian on City Road. I was reluctant to try somewhere new, but I’m so glad I did. Having made my appointment online, as soon as I walked into the salon I knew I’d made a good choice. The staff were friendly and welcoming, offering me a drinks menu that even included wine, although it was a bit too early for alcohol, even for a student! My cut and blow dry was finished in just 45 minutes, but I was more than happy with the result; the stylist really listened to what I wanted, which is sometimes rare with hairdressers. The luxurious atmosphere and beautiful decor is an added bonus to the great service. I had my cut with a salon designer that ended up costing a reasonable £27 after student discount, and I was given a loyalty card with £5 off my next cut, which I will most definitely be returning for!
