I’m one of those girls who, if they get something in their head about their hair, acts on it immediately. I was quite happy with ridiculously bad roots until one day when I realised it looked rubbish and so quickly booked an appointment at Jones and Payne. My sister had been there before & liked the results, and it is coincidentally practically opposite my offices in Shoreditch – fate!
I wanted to get my roots blended in a little better with highlights, as well as a trim as the ends were looking like they needed some lovin’. Here are some before & after pictures!
It’s a subtle, but healthier transformation, I think you’ll agree? I had Charlotte Barlow do my colour – she used the balyage technique to softly blend highlights into my roots, followed by a toner on the ends of my hair to soften the platinum tones. I then had Master Stylist Chris Sturdy trip my locks to look healthy but keeping length and making it more easy for me to style. I must say, he was one of the only hairdressers which didn’t cut TOO much of my hair off, for once.
The salon itself was lovely – there are cocktails for all (I had perhaps the most delicious strawberry belinni I’ve ever tasted). It’s a quirky little place, with lovely (and attractive!) staff and I would definitely visit again.
Have you ever been to Jones & Paynes? Do you like the (small) change?
