London is packed with hair salons of all shapes and sizes. Some are mere holes in the wall offering simple cuts for under a tenner, others will charge you prices in the hundreds of pounds for a daring cut or perfect blowout.
For an affordable cut and blow dry a good chain to look out for is Headmasters. There are salons all over town, from Balham to Bromley and Chiswick to Clapham, but the most centrally located can be found on Poland Street in Soho, less than a five-minute walk from Oxford Circus, and on Hanover Street in Mayfair – the chain's flagship branch.
Service at all salons is friendly without being annoyingly chatty and the advice stylists give has a professional edge, with a clear understanding of how hair works and grows clearly underlying everything they do. Even better, prices are affordable, starting from around £40 and with plenty of offers. You can book appointments online too, and there are often time slots available even at the last minute.
