FOUR London – Review

Aah my hair. My over-processed-refuses-to-get-it-cut hair. My grey-since-the-age-of-19 hair.

Over the last year or so people had stopped saying ‘oh your hair looks nice..’ and started saying ‘have you done something to your hair?’ for which read: ‘You hair looks odd/hideous/strange?’
My husband took to calling me a badger. Tres charmant.

My regular hairdresser of the last few years does his best bless him (love you Paul) – but he’s faced with me every month saying ‘No. that’s not what I want – do this.’ ‘No. It doesn’t need cutting.’ ‘No, you don’t understand – I WANT it dark at the front and stripey on top.’ I know he utterly despairs of me.

So when FOUR London offered to take me in hand I figured I would stop channelling Daphne Guinness on crack and go and see some colour professionals.

You know when someone really wants to say something like ‘JESUS!’ but they just say ‘Okaaayyyyyy. Let’s take a look.’ That would be the lovely Charlie from FOUR.

The four Ladies from FOUR. Charlie on the right. Don’t be fooled by the pretty face. She takes no prisoners.

Despite being booked in for highlights and a quick blow dry I ended up having a complete colour change. A total stripped-back-to-basics colour change. A five-hours-in-the-chair colour change. Numb bum anyone?

SO worth a numb bum. Have a look for yourself:

Much calmer, less two-toned, the colour is now more fluid throughout.

FOUR London is the brainchild of four friends who all met when they worked at Jo Hansford.They have over 40 years experience between them and it shows. During their career at Jo Hansford, as ambassadors for the salon, they travelled worldwide educating other hairdressers in the art of colour correction and highlight placement techniques.
They are basically – Specialists. Hardcore Specialists.

Whether your hair needs help, you’re thinking of going into colour for the first time or are looking for a change – I can highly recommend FOUR. The salon is remarkably calm and relaxing, the teams are all at the top of their game and the results – for me – were exactly what I needed.
