Looking after my hair is essential to having a clean and smart look, I was recommended by Carl Thompson to visit Kell Skött Haircare for their hair care treatment and a men’s cut. With a trip to London coming up and a photo-shoot for my new Tuxedo that had just arrived I felt it suited perfectly in order to get ready for my pictures.
When arriving in Notting Hill which is where the award winning hair salon is you instantly realise that you’re in a very posh part of London, the streets are lined with expensive cars and beautiful white town houses. Finding the way to the salon was very easy and around a 10 minute walk from the station (Notting Hill Tube Station).
You arrive on a pebbled road which leads you away from the designer shops and restaurants upon the road and to a slightly more quiet place.
When entering the salon the staff welcomed us and introduced me to the principle stylist for the day (Darron Harrold). He was a very nice chap who was very talkative and appeared to have a wealth of knowledge and experience. Darron asked me to follow him into the salon from the reception and for me to sit down and talk about what I wanted from the styling. I said “as long as it looks smart and neat I’m happy, you can do anything with it that you like”. He replied with “I think I might just do that”. So after the quick consultation about the outcome I was whisked off to the hair care treatment section of the salon, a very polite girl asked me to sit back and relax whilst she used a lovely smelling shampoo, whilst washing my hair through with it twice she then continued to massage my head – very relaxing!
I returned to see Darron afterwards, he sat me down and went to work on styling my hair. He used a technique which was totally different to any I had experienced before which was to use a serrated razor in order to give my hair more texture rather that the clean cut that normal budget salon/barbers use – which is normally very much in the way of get you in, sit you down, a quick cut and leave.
Darron managed to take the time to both give me a great styling and also talk to me. We had a lovely conversation and it all felt very natural rather than the awkwardness everyone experiences from time to time when getting their hair cut or styled. This experience was very different in the way that they had brought me in, spoken to me and made me feel relaxed before my styling.
When the mirror came out to signify that he had completed my styling I could honestly say I was very happy with the final outcome.
My experience was made all the better as I also had a complimentary drink and biscuits for that added touch – I went for an ice latte, however there are many choices on offer.
Overall the time spent in the salon was fantastic, I would definitely recommend their services and Darron Harrold especially. Kell Skött Haircare I will definitely be back in the near future.
All opinions are my own, thank you to Kell Skött Haircare, for inviting me for a styling.
