I recently popped along for a cut and colour with Steven, who managed to fit me in just before Christmas
thanks to their unique approach to flexible opening hours. Rather than working to a set schedule, they work around their clients – so if you need a late evening appointment, or an early start, they’ll try to accommodate you any day of the week, rather than just having set late/early days.

I have to be honest, I’m usually not one for talking much while in the hairdresser’s chair, but Steven is hilarious and it was impossible not to sit there giggling away and chatting for the entire two hours I was in there. I think the only time we were both quiet was when my colour was being washed off and I was given the most amazing head massage which almost ended in me falling asleep in the chair. Full marks on that score.
As well as being a comedy genius, Steven is a bit of a hair whizz (as is Nadia) and has worked internationally for people such as Vivienne Westwood, as well as a whole host of other fashion designers. While the quality of the stylists might be extremely high, they’ve still managed to achieve a really relaxed, informal feel to the salon, and you won’t find interns or receptionists greeting you as you enter, just Nadia and Steven, which makes a really lovely change.
