With another salon a mere hair-flick away from the King’s Road, Hari’s may be a blow-dry magnet for the über-Sloane but there’s no doubting it’s at the top of its game. Leaving behind the familiar charms of the chic and glamorous Brompton Road salon, we took a chance on the kookier King’s Road outlet, complete with diamond-encrusted skulls above the mirrors and paint-splattered work stations.
Our tester's vegetable colour treatment (from £45) came with a fresh juice from the in-house bar. Colour was expertly applied and left her with locks that looked posh and glossy. There are numerous sideline treatments too, such as killer lashes and spray-tans to match your new hair colour. A nail beauty splurge comes from Sophy Robinson, who has worked for Topshop Unique and Giles Deacon: her’s are capable hands to place yours in.
Be warned, though: this is not the destination for oasis-like calm and Chelsea stylings. There seems to be a constant commotion in this lively salon: staff outnumber customers (of which there are already many), smoothies are constantly being whizzed up and music is at louder than background volume. Perfect if you're looking for a bit of action to accompany your haircut.
