Just before fashion week, I know many moons ago, I was treated to a brand new hair-do at The Chapel in Angel. Normally I shy away from getting my hair done as I am a little on the nervous side with new peeps cutting my hair, I blame my Mum as when I was little I had the most awful hair cut done that made me run out crying, I was only 8 but it has stayed with me.
However, I had heard such amazing things about The Chapel that I thought I would be in great hands, and I most certainly was – there were no nerves, no tension – just an amazing hair cut and colour in an stylish setting – the interior of the salon is perfection. I loved the consultation couches, the handbag locker boxes, the large hanging mirrors, the relaxing fireplace, basically everything has been thought out for a great, stress-free, roomy experience – oh and I can’t forget the chocolates you get with your drink – they are delicious!!!
I was looked after by Salon Director, Georgia Denton (above), who was super cute with her pink-dipped blonde bob, I loved how she listened to what I wanted, didn’t want, and put together a little inspiration pitch to showcase her vision for my hair, which as I asked for nothing too drastic was a more modern look to my existing cut – equalling blunt bangs, heavy layers and straight across the bottom and I absolutely love it.
As well as a cut I was also treated to a fresh colour on my locks, normally I stay clear of colouring as I don’t like the up-keep but my natural dip-dye effect needed to go, so the colour specialist Danni came up with this glossy dark brown shade that is about two shades darker than my normal colour. I am just surprised by how a small change can make such a difference, I also think the Redken colour also helped as I have never seen my hair so shiny before.
I was at the salon for a good few hours, but unlike other places I have been over the years to get my hair cut, it didn’t seem like anyone was rushing to get me out of the chair, I was comfortable in front of the fire with a hot chocolate waiting for my colour to develop, and the staff were super friendly.
If you live or work in the Islington area then you have to check out this amazing hairdressers as I totally recommend that they will look after you and make your hair look better than ever. It was because of how good they were that it makes me sad I don’t live in London any more I know I commute in a lot, but I just wish The Chapel was in Cambridge.
As well as getting a great cut and a shiny new colour, I also got a boost in confidence because of all the amazing complements I got. It just shows that paying for a great hairdresser makes all the difference as I haven’t seen my hair cut keep it shapes for as long as this latest cut from Georgia – I think I need to start finding reasons to go to Angel!!!
