Our cut and blow dry appointments are 45 minutes long, allowing your stylist time to discuss your likes and concerns, look at the condition of your hair and scalp, discuss the look you desire, chat about trends and fashions and create a look you absolutely love. For men, we squeeze it all into half an hour!
If you lust for long luscious locks but your hair isn’t quite there yet then hair extensions are the solution for you! Extensions can also give you thickness, volume and chemical free colour. Either a long term solution or perfect for that red carpet party, for which temporary clip ins, hair pieces and wigs are ideal. Over the years Anne has been creative ambassador for two of the UK's best known extensions brands and these days we are exclusive suppliers in Oxfordshire of Gold Class, the highest quality hair extensions available anywhere and beloved by celebrities. But we are not tied to one brand and we recommend what's best for you from Lox Box, Balmain, Racoon and Sleek as well as Gold Class.
We offer a comprehensive range of hair care treatments and products by Davines and Avlon. Our treatments will help improve the condition of your hair. Our hair care products will prolong the impact of your visit to the salon until the next time. You've probably heard of Olaplex, a little drop of product which we add to your hair to rebuild it from breakage and which leaves your hair feeling amazing. We'll recommend it if we feel it's the best thing for you, but do ask us about it!
Styling, hair up and blow dry are our passions! Anne and the team work in the fashion world, on editorial shoots and at spectacular shows around the world, so we are experts with the latest styles and finishing techniques.
Straightening, Smoothing and Relaxer
Looking for a way to smooth out or straighten your hair? Want to eliminate frizz and curl? We offer Nanokeratin and Avlon to give you straight or smooth hair which, with the proper after care, will last up to 6 months! Includes, of course, what everyone used to call the Brazilian Blow Dry!
For textured (Afro / African-Caribbean / Natural African Type) and very curly hair, we use Avlon products which condition your hair before, during and after relaxing, leaving your hair super straight, feeling soft and looking radiant. For temporary texture management (up to 2 weeks) we use Avlon Thermal Wonder and for semi-permanent (up to 8 to 10 washes) we use Avlon Texture Release.
Join us for a consultation which will determine the strength and condition of your hair and which system is suitable for your hair type and needs.
Hair colour is an art. Each member of our team is trained to the highest standards in all aspects of colouring. We take time to discuss your colour preferences and explain how the process will work, as well as what will and won’t suit your skin tone, to ensure you get results that look and feel fabulous!
We work with Davines, possibly the most ethical and sustainable hairdressing manufacturer in the world providing technically superior products. Their colours create beautiful multi-dimensional tones, are kind to the hair and most importantly, deliver outstanding results.
We use "Paper Not Foil" a seriously more sustainable alternative to foils and we are of course, experts at balayage, the free hand painting of highlights. In fact, when Anne arrived in London back in the day, balayage was all she knew, having never seen foils before! Just not the French way!
If it is your first time with us, we recommend a free 20 minute colour consultation by Zoom. In the salon it's £20 but free if you go ahead with any service priced at £69 or more. You'll need a skin sensitivity test 48 hours before your appointment for your own safety and also please note, colour is only for 16s and over. And...colour is gender neutral , all prices apply equally to women and men.
