Blue Tit Dalston
Forget slick looking minimal hair salons, this lovely indie hairdressers has a proudly maximalist interior with framed antique photographs, bare brick walls, a wooden bar over which hang delicate lightbulbs and lots of reclaimed vintage décor. The Dalston massive, try-hard city boys and east London locals tend to come here for trendy looks and dip dyes – but a classic fringe, or even a few Chelsea layers are also perfectly executed by skilled staff who specialise in listening to their customers. There's a good soundtrack, free wifi, and wine, beer, fresh juice and hot drinks topped up throughout your visit. The salon uses Davines products, which are more natural than most and smell amazing. You’ll find out all the goss from the cool 19-year-old salon assistant who will tell you about her boyfriend’s band as she washes your hair. Women cut and finish £53; men’s cut and finish £38. Bleach from £79.
Venue says: “Hair salon based in Dalston on Stoke Newington High St. Using Davines and Olaplex products, with a team of award winning stylists.”
