In the weekend I was fortunate enough to be invited for a cut, colour and treatment at the Sassoon Salon South Molton Street.


For you guys who have have been following me for a while, know that every time I go to the hairdressers (notably here and here) – I have the constant dilemma of either going back to my natural colour (dark brown), or go even lighter. Each time I chicken out, keeping it quite similar (caramel tones), with just subtle enhancements and length. This time however – I wanted a bit more of a radical change – or rather, my hair needed a big chop (sadly – but much necessary).

Firstly, let me tell you how amazing this salon is. Located on one of my favourite streets in London, South Molton Street, just off Bond Street – this unassuming salon is a bustling two-storey haven. Granted, I chose an appointment at possibly their busiest time of the week – midday on Saturday – I was met with a big smile, with friendly, professional and relaxed staff. I was fortunate enough to have my colour with the lovely Neville – who after meeting with me for a skin test prior to the appointment, had already decided for an ‘Allesandra Ambrosio’ colour on me (if only).

The gorgeous Laura was cutting my hair, and after consulting with both of them about the cut – we all agreed that my hair was in really bad condition, and needed quite a lot chopped off. I breathed in… and agreed.

Let the fun begin!


Lifeless with broken ends.



In the chair with Neville working his magic. He lightened the whole hair and roots – adding one colour all over, called ‘biscuit’, then he applied a toner, to take away the orange/red tones.



After the colour, it was Laura’s turn to work her magic on me. Granted, it was cut quite short –  a lot shorter than I would have liked it – but my hair felt a-mazing and super healthy afterwards.


Lighter, shorter and much fuller. Love it.

    Your hair looks great! I love the colour and the length really suits you, it actually doesn’t look as short as it is – they must be very clever with their layering at Sassoon!

      Hi Lilly,

      thank you! I am afraid the jumper is vintage, with no brand I am afraid!
