Hello! Fashion's SEO Content Writer Orin Carlin says: "Andrew is one of the industry's greatest (and loveliest) talents. His superlative blow dry skills reflect his extensive industry experience and he totally transformed my weathered hair into gorgeous, silky smooth locks. The attention to detail is second to none."

 Specialising in bespoke colour styling, Limoz Logli's elegant West London salon ought to be on your radar if you're looking to try out a new shade. Plus, the salon's glossy marble interior is achingly chic. There's a reason celebs are willing to fork out the big bucks to see him personally. 

Hello! Fashion's Digital Editor Natalie Salmon says: "Limoz has become the most trusted colourist in London, and for good reason. He achieves that coveted sun-kissed Gisele blonde colour, which is incredibly hard to master without ruining your precious mane. On top of that his salon in the heart of Chelsea is an oasis of calm, and looks more like a Soho House than a salon... Expect to rub shoulders with trusted beauty journalists, and his A-list clientele."

Mimi et Mina's Notting Hill salon

Situated on a super cute Notting Hill street corner, Mimi et Mina has been catering to those with textured and afro hair since 2015. Dissatisfied with how salons were treating curly hair, its founder Mimi Koné set up on her own the year after she moved to London and has since developed an extremely devoted clientele.

Hello! Fashion's SEO Content Writer Orin Carlin says: "Compact and elegant, the salon is a veritable hidden gem within London's Notting Hill. Mimi is a master of her craft, from her first-rate product recommendations (I have her to thank for introducing me to Briogeo's excellent 'Don't Despair, Repair!' range) to her extensive afro haircare knowledge. My hair felt super sleek after my treatment, and I love how much thought, care and consultation goes into each appointment."

Situated on Belgravia's iconic Pont Street, Neville's is the place to go for the ultimate luxurious experience. They pride themselves on being customer-led, not trend-led, and are commited to understanding their clients' needs.

"Honestly, I have never had better highlights anywhere else," says Hello! Fashion's Digital Writer Lauren Ramsay. The staff are so attentive, friendly and they really do take care of your hair. I have ultra blonde highlights, yet my hair doesn't feel damaged or dry afterwards. I also love a bouncy blow dry that's not too voluminous, and Neville's get it exactly how I like it."

Where: 5 Pont St, SW1X 9EJ
