Whether it’s in response to getting a new job, coming out the other side of a break-up or just wanting to mix up your current look, getting a haircut is the way to reassert yourself as brand new person. We don’t make the rules. But when such a huge undertaking is put into the hands of a stranger, how can you ensure that you emerge looking and feeling your best?

Here at ELLE we’ve tried and tested a lot of hair salons (and a conveyer belt of hairstyles to boot), so to help ensure you also get the hair of your dreams, we’ve rounded up the very best hair salons London has to offer.


Neil Moodie Studio

With architects Charles Eames and John Lautner as a reference point for its interior design, Neil Moodie Studio in Spitalfields is plush and inviting without being intimidating (the chairs are some of the most comfortable ones we’ve sat in). Moodie’s a seasoned pro within the fashion week circuit, so the team has refined the art of translating current trends into real life, all while taking into account your styling habits and lifestyle. Sustainability is at the heart of the studio; the space is mainly done up in recycled and upcycled materials, and there are no single use gloves or water bottles. Pricing is gender-neutral too.

STIL Salon

After the huge success of her first Notting Hill based salon, Christel Barron-Hough has opened a sister salon in Chelsea. The space is a Scandi-inspired oasis of calm, with bright and inviting minimalist decor, with the added bonus of being met at the door by Bertie, the salon’s resident pup. Specialising in colour, those who are looking for a precisely tailored approach won’t find anyone more attentive than Barron-Hough and her team, who start each appointment with a one-to-one consultation to discuss which shades will best compliment your undertones and features. With the team’s in-depth expertise and calm atmosphere, you’ll leave your appointment feeling the same kind of zen you’d expect after an hour long massage.BOOK NOW


George Northwood

As the skilled hands behind some of the most iconic celebrity hairstyles (Alexa Chung and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are longstanding loyalists), George Northwood has become the master of bobs. Subsequently, his namesake salon nestled in Soho has become the port of call for those seeking a shorter chop, with a team trained under Northwood’s meticulous eye for detail. They understand that a haircut should be fun, modern and elevate your confidence, meaning you’ll feel all your hair anxiety melt away as soon as you’re sat down in the salon chair.BOOK NOW


Butchers Salon

It’s a fantastical cobalt blue fairground of beauty.BOOK NOW


Blue Tit

Previously, our commitments to sustainability haven’t been top of the priority list when it comes to choosing our hairdressers. Unfortunately, the nature of a hair salon makes it difficult to get around the water waste and product consumption. Blue Tit. however. have turned this problem into real change, becoming Europe’s first B-Corp certified salon. Just a few of the sustainable efforts the salon has implemented includes using EcoHeads to reduce 1,350,000 litres of water wastage a year, using biodegradable hair towels and recycling over 95% of its waste. Blue Tit’s 10 salons across the city (Greenwich is their latest spot) are kitted out in a super sleek urban jungle decor that reflects the style of each neighbourhood, so the most difficult part will be choosing which one to visit first.BOOK NOW

Larry King

The man behind some of the boldest editorial hairstyles and with a roster of celebrity clients in tow, we’re not sure how Larry King had the time to set up not one but two flagship salons in London.
