We’ll be honest, it was definitely the shop’s earth tones decor and plant displays that first drew us to Love Hair, but rest assured that this salon does know their craft. With eco-friendliness at the heart of their ethos, they are careful to use products with reduced chemical content such as PPD- and ammonia-free colours and offer smoothing treatment bHave which is free of all bad chemicals, including formaldehyde.

With just three chairs and a private VIP room, this exclusive salon is evidently not cheap, but you can be sure they’re using world-class products that are top of the range in the industry.
