"I’ve never had people stop me on the street to ask where I got my hair coloured, until now…”  Astrid Joss discovers why this is the place for your hair to go. 


JOHN FRIEDA, Margaret Street, Fitzrovia 

Saying you ‘get your hair done’ at John Frieda is pretty much the same thing as saying you dress in Valentino... a lot. So hair snobs can revel in delight with the latest London salon launch in fashionable Fitzrovia where one of the ultimate hair colourists of our time, Nicola Clarke, resides.  

This 5th opening marks exactly 40 years of the fabulous Mr Frieda wanting to make the hair world a better place, so expect a very experienced round up of pure hair brilliance on every level, led by hair guru Nicola Clarke and her strong and driven team. From cool cuts, to spectacular styling and colour techniques, no stone is unturned in terms of attention to detail. Most notably the wow factor comes with the exceptional service oh-so nicely delivered within one incredibly slick setting - and let’s face it when it comes to salons, experience is everything. Like a scene out of down town Manhattan, the minimalist industrial interior makes for a super relaxed yet elegant space - think polished expensive looking concrete, exposed ceiling pipes and soft leather furnishing with the latest high gadget technology surrounding you - the halo shaped hair dryer is totally celestial. As per my experience...

We love the ‘workstations’ available to set your laptop up or even just charge your phone and enjoy coffee whilst your colour develops.  The best bit is it suits all ages and needs from glamorous grannies to trendy teens - whether you’re after a cutting edge trim, a to die for colour or a wonderfully wearable blow-dry, the Margaret Street team will deliver.
