Taylor Taylor London – Portobello Road
Taylor Taylor London has become one of the capital’s most recognised hairdressing brands, with 3 salons including the most recent addition in the world famous Notting Hill.
Located on the famed Portobello road the area is a must visit for Londoners and visitors alike with the bustling weekend market attracting huge numbers. Though located in a prime location once you enter the salon you are secluded from the hustle and bustle of the street. I was struck by the modern yet ornate interiors with a nod to Baroque extravagances of the French courts, with gold accents, striking light fixtures and their very own bar which serves up cocktails (and coffees) white you wait.
The salon is welcoming to its male clientele so no garish girly decor here but a sophisticated unisex vibe that offers high quality services to all clients. The receptionist was friendly and warm, making the whole experience enjoyable.
On my visit my appointment was with Style Director, Michael O’Gorman who has over 10 year experience working for editorial and fashion clients including huge brands like Louis Vuitton, Cavalli and Balenciaga. Michael and I discussed the type of look I was going for and then he got to work.
I was taken downstairs to an equally beautiful room to get my hair shampooed and conditioned, and they even offer a head massage! back upstairs I settled on a G&T which was then delivered to my station.
I was very happy with the cut and service, and I was out within an hour. The cut was just what I wanted but Michael put his own glossy high fashion take on it.
I would highly recommend a visit for your next cut, great service and cocktails to boot, what more could you ask for?
