Hairdressers in London: things to know before you go

Got questions about hairdressers in London? Keep your hair on – we’ve got the answers:

Which are some of the best hairdressers in London?

With so many amazing vouchers for hairdressers in London, you might not know where to start. Here are some of the best offers for revamping your style:

  • Amadeus Hair in Islington, north London will give you the full works: a cut and blow dry with conditioning treatment and a full-head colour.
  • Jackie & Co in west London is a popular spot for the latest trend in hair colour, balayage.
  • Alterity Studio is the place to straighten your mane, with their Brazilian keratin treatment promising to tame even the wildest curls.

Are there any deals on hairdressers in London for men?

We’ve found the best deals on barbers in London, from Knightsbridge to Kilburn, so you can be groomed to perfection. Popular treatments include haircuts, beard trims and hot towel shaves. Never tried one? Put down your shop-bought razor and hand over to the pros. They’ll wrap your face in warm, soothing towels and then give you a shave, so clean and sharp it rivals James Bond.

How do I know which hairstyle is for me?

If you really don’t know what you want, your head shape can help narrow down the options. Here are some inspiration for different head shapes:

  • Oval: Bobs and lobs are the perfect match, with gentle layering around your face to highlight the desirable oval shape.
  • Square: Think shoulder-length and side partings, to soften your strong jawline.
  • Round: Pixie cuts look cute with round faces – as do most short haircuts – but whatever length you choose, make sure you keep fringes soft and feathered.
  • Heart: Lobs, shoulder-length and longer are the best hairstyles for heart-shaped faces, creating extra width around the tip of your chin to balance out your face.

The best thing to do is look for inspiration – on the tube, out for dinner, flicking through Instagram. You can always ask your hairdresser in London, too. They’re the pros, so they’re like a fountain of hair knowledge when you’re in need of inspiration.

How much do people tip hairdressers in London?

At London salons, tipping between 10% and 25% is the accepted norm, according to the Telegraph. You should give the tip directly to the person who you want to have it, whether that’s the stylist or colourist. On the other hand, some people choose not to tip. Do whatever you feel is deserved, and don’t feel pressured to pay this optional extra if you don’t want to.
