The new super salons you need on your radar
Think that salons are just where you go for a trim? Think again. RCNQ is a creative hub where clients can feel at home and stay all day. Twice a week the doors are closed for yoga classes and once a month there’s a meditation session. Mindfulness is always top of the menu with herbal teas andhealthy refreshments on tap. Stylists are also big on ‘communicational training’ and will come armed with solutions and positivity. It’s true hair therapy!
Glasshouse Salon and Shop
As the name suggests, this salon is all about bringing the outdoors inside. As well as cuts and colours, the focus is on long-term hair health using mainly organic, plantbased formulas with few synthetic chemicals. It has gained local fame for its gorgeous interior design and also for stocking natural and organic beauty brands including RMS BEAUTY, ILIA, GUY MORGAN APOTHECARY and ORGANIC COLOUR SYSTEMS (the latter is used for all salon treatments and colour).
Bringing a bit of US style to UK shores, this super cool salon is inspired by a luxury American launderette. The theme is carried throughout, from blowdries re-branded as SPIN DRYS, while gift vouchers come in the form of washing machine tokens. Forget a northern cup of brew, here a bespoke coffee bar is at the heart of the salon along with coldpressed juices and homemade biscuits and cakes. The perfect space to chill on the diner-style seats and keep aneye on your emails.
