When I think of a hair salon, I think of bright lights, constant noise of hairdryers blowing, hair sweeping and people chattering all alongside a background of either a radio or CD that no one’s quite listening to amid the hubbub of activity. I personally dread it alongside the small talk over last weeks OK! Magazine. Well don’t worry – that Instagram worthy hair is on the way. Be done with your local and check out the latest hotspots in London that you must visit!
