SALON FOCUS: Taylor Taylor London x Liberty
Where? High on the 3rd floor of the historic department store Liberty London, with views over famed Carnaby Street lays Taylor Taylors latest venture. With a super talented portfolio of stylists, bringing their cutting-edge creativity and expertise to the fashionista haven, ‘Taylor Taylor London at Liberty’ is a lighter more unisex take on the modern luxury that has become Taylor Taylor’s signature style. Think French country boudoir with a smattering of bespoke Liberty print antique furniture and statement commissioned artwork.
What’s On Offer? The Liberty London salon may be the smallest of the Taylor Taylor salons but don’t make the mistake of thinking their range of services are any less extensive. Whether you are after a simple cut, the latest hair colouring techniques including balayage, ecaille and ombre, permanent straightening, Brazilian blowouts or Oplapex, ‘Taylor Taylor London at Liberty’ has you covered. And thanks to their team of gifted stylists and colour technicians who all thrive on commercial, editorial and session work outside the salon you can rest in the knowledge that you are with a team in the know. Of course no Taylor Taylor salon would be complete without their infamous complimentary cocktail bar and their Liberty London salon does not disappoint, boasting a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails along with fresh juices, tea and coffees.
What I had? In desperate need of a root touch up and with a minor (or major depending on your view point) hair disaster to fix (I’m talking bright orange streak at the back of my hair, that thankfully could only be seen when my hair was up) I booked in for a full colour with Oplapex (a breakthrough hair treatment that quite literally repairs the bonds that are broken when you colour your hair) with Colour Director Michael Kelly. With 11 years experience, Michael, who has recently moved to our shores from Australia, has worked with the likes of Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle and Marie Claire, and was a finalist for Australian Hair Colourist of the Year. Putting his full skill set to use, Michael worked in a mixture of highlights and free hand balayage to transform my locks in to a luscious creamy blonde with lighter tips and slightly darker roots, allowing for a more natural look with room for regrowth.
What I thought? A gem within a gem! Taylor Taylor London has done it again thanks to their beautiful and intimate Liberty salon combined with its top-notch team and first-class results. To book your appointment at ‘Taylor Taylor London at Liberty’ visit: www.taylortaylorlondon.com
