As a fashion stylist, John Vial, one of the co-founders of Salon, is one of the most respected name in the beauty industry so naturally I’ve always wanted to try his Chelsea based salon: Salon Sloane.
Conveniently located off Sloane Square in the uber chic yet secluded Pavillon Road, Sloane Salon ticks all the boxes of my perfect hair salon: gorgeous space, professional yet chic and trendy staff, amazing cafe and world class hairdressing.
Everything was perfect from the professional and friendly welcome of the stylish salon manager Kelly, to the expert shampoo of the French junior stylist to the amazing haircut and blow dry by the super talented and humble Emmanuel, also French (pictured below).
Most of the stylists have been hand picked by John and co-founder Belle Cannan themselves backstage of international fashion shows or on the set of editorial shoots. The team is a melting pot of celebrity stylists to emerging talents from various nationalities which gives an incredible atmosphere to the salon.
The creative flair of the stylists does not impact the quality of the service: I went for a trim and blow dry and got the perfect haircut and wavy blow out – styled with a brush not a GHD – for a series of meetings in London. The haircut was executed to perfection and the blow-dry left my hair perfectly conditioned, shiny and styled to perfection. This address sits proudly on the top of my London Little Black Book!
