‘Beauty first’ is the philosophy at Saco. Which means whatever ideas (or ego) your stylist has, they’ll put them aside if they won't make you look and feel beautiful. It’s a refreshing approach, one that means you won’t end up with an asymmetrical bob and a blunt-cut fringe – unless, of course, that’s a look you can totally rock. Having moved away from the tourist trade at its former Covent Garden branch, Saco’s latest salon is nestled on a quiet Fitzrovia road off Goodge Street, and is perfectly geared to its local clientele: busy office types after a fuss-free, high-end service. The narrow salon is sleek and simple, and there’s not even a whiff of pretension among the talented cutters and colourists. In fact, even a session with Richard Ashforth, one of the founders, is an entirely laidback affair which includes a reassuring consultation and plenty of chat about face shape, hair length and ‘beauty enhancing’ styles. Cuts start at a very reasonable (for central London, at least) £48, a blow dry comes in at £25, and colour services start at £95.
