LONDON: With a growing empire of five salons it is the London branch of Matthew Curtis’s salon at the five star Rosewood Hotel which has really caught our attention. The decadent oriental ex-press decor and bourgeoisie appeal, hidden away in the heart of central London boasts a whole host of celebrity clients, including the likes of Victoria Beckham and Elle MacPherson. A must-visit on your next trip to London.
PARIS: In Paris, it is easy to feel intimidated by the plethora of high society-esque salons offering appointments with staff who can be a little standoffish; ultimately leading to a not so great experi-ence. Step in Des Garcons salon, a three-room apartment in the prestigious rue Saint Honore run by two master hairstylists David and Bruno. The intimate space is a breath of fresh air with an eccentric mix of vintage and contempo-rary furniture, adorning each room. The feel is friendly and laid back, much like the resulting effort-less chic locks you will walk out with.
CHICAGO: With her work in the likes of Harpers Bazaar, Vogue and Glamour magazine, as well as appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, it is with no surprise the Marianne Strokirk Salon in Chicago made the best salon list. With a whole host of beautiful balayage blowouts on her Insta-gram page, this is your first stop shop for a colour refresh and cool-girl beach waves when you next find yourself in Chicago.
TOKYO: When abroad, it can be challenging to communicate with your hairdresser when there are language barriers; leading to a high probability, you may come out with a bob when you requested bangs! Thankfully for you, the ultra-hip Baroque salon in Tokyo, with its leather chairs and exposed pipework, has English speaking Japanese hair artists, who have trained and worked all over the world; meaning you will get precisely what you asked for!
LOS ANGELES: MeChe Salon meaning ‘lock of hair’ in French is the ultimate Hollywood go-to salon, run by the renowned Tracey Cunningham and Neil Weisberg. Don’t be put off by the large team of twenty hairstylists; the sizea-ble number is an accolade to the salons growing popularity and deserved space in the sought after location of Beverley Hills. You will still get the friendly one to one service we have all grown to ex-pect when visiting a premier salon of MeChe level. Just take a look at the salons Instagram page for her impressive list of A-list clients.
