Walking down Commercial Street wasn’t a top of Miss LF‘s list until the Premier award winning salon that is Taylor Taylor London appeared on her radar. Having only three salons in the world; two of them in East London, the other in.. wait for it.. the Maldives (!) this fashionable salon combines East London cool with West London luxury.

Stepping into the sumptuous Shoreditch branch, you’ll find a complimentary cocktail bar amidst a vintage grandeur interior resembling that of 18th century France filled with Rococo pieces and period finds. If that doesn’t whet your whistle, the Taylor Taylor list of unisex hair stylists are as impressive as the decor – from catwalks to editorial, every stylist has been selected purposefully for their skill set.

Miss LF had the pleasure of meeting top stylist Marc Revivis for her Hollywood blow dry, having focused on editorial shoots for publications such as Tatler, OK and Glamour magazines Marc is now assisting the hair styling legend Guido Palau. Despite this impressive portfolio Marc stays very grounded and has a history of coaching trainee hairdressers with model nights and one to one teachings.

Another features that makes Taylor Taylor stand out is their Grand Cutting Room equipped with oversized Murano glass chandeliers and a subterranean golden washroom, offering Hippy & Holistics hair and beauty products infused with natural ingredients such as Acai oil, rice bran oil and passionflower oil to protect against environmental damage and moisture loss, oat derivatives like ‘beta-glucan’ used to penetrate the skin and help reduce the visible signs of ageing hair while vegetable proteins penetrate the hair cuticles and strengthen from within.

Overall, Taylor Taylor London feels like an exclusive members club for the fabulously coiffed luminaries of London (and the Indian Ocean). Book now to experience the indulgent luxuries of styling armed with a delicious cocktail.

Designed as a luxury facial for the hands, the SOL treatment protects the skin from future sun damage, rejuvenates the skin’s natural glow leaving hands feeling silky soft. Beginning with and Avocado Nail Butter massage before being neatly shaped and left to soak in the nail bath.

Then onto a powerful Enzyme Hand Peel to remove dead skin cells with a relaxing hand massage before a skin-repairing Overnight Hand Mask with Panthenol is applied to replenish and moisturise, while your hands are enveloped in a warm towel for ten minutes to encourage penetration of the hand mask, the beautician see’s to your well-being through a head and shoulder massage using pressure points.
