Today Salon Scout visited SEED Hair salon to try out their blow drying skills.
Founders Yuly and Francesca have a vision to bring excellent standards of hair and care and now with a second salon both in the vibrant towns of Fulham and Clapham.
The interior of the salon is a great mix of hard wood flooring , soft black leather chairs, brick walls covered in stunning pictures of art and metal piping which gives the salon a rustic feel. The salon also has a nail bar and beauty room making this the one stop to make you feel good and look fabulous.
Walking in we were met with big smiles and friendly faces. We were Taken to our seat and told the stylist would be with us shortly and therefore offered a choice of refreshments and magazines whilst we waited.
We enjoyed a nice cup of tea with biscuit (we love a good cuppa!!) and was surprised when we were offered water which came a small a bowl of fresh grapes on the side (nice touch).
Stylist Naomy came over and showed us to the basin area where we sat in a very comfortable, reclining chair and began to wash the hair with Davines Minu Shampoo and Davines Minu Conditioner specifically for colour treated hair. The shampoo has a fresh citrus scent (orange blossom) Naomy recommends these products for colour treated hair as it will protect from colour fade and keep it shiny for longer. Naomy also recommens OI All in one milk to condition hair without weighing it down.
Having your hair washed and massaged has to be one of the best feelings in the world!
For a nice soft,wavy blow dry she spritzed it all over, combed it through with ease and proceeded to dry my hair with a small brush so that my style would last longer.
