Review: Jamie Stevens Salon

Jamie Stevens Salon London

The Products Used: Matrix Professional Colour, Matrix Heat Protector and Matrix Thermo Glide Expres Blowout Creme.

The Treatment: Full head of highlights, including cut and blowdry

The Review: I had high expectations when I entered a Jamie Stevens salon; after all, Jamie is the Head Stylist on the X-Factor, he's won numerous hairdressing awards and his London salon just won 'Salon of the Year' in the 2014 Hair Awards. Luckily for me, those expectations were met! Not only did I have a lovely time in salon, I walked out with some amazingly transformed locks!

From the second I stepped in the salon, everyone I came into contact with was extremely friendly and helpful. The team attended to my every need to keep me as comfortable as possible - which is important when your salon stay is around the three hour mark!

My consultation was extremely thorough. My stylist, Jess, asked lots of questions regarding my hair concerns and desires and we spoke in detail about the look I wanted to achieve. She then advised me on what styles and colours would work best with face shape and skin tone. I was really impressed by the whole experience - I gave Jess quite a difficult brief but she really listened to what I wanted and advised me on what would look best.

Jamie Stevens Salon review

The service itself was as comfortable and relaxing as it could have been - the time flew by as Jess and I spent most of it gossiping and chatting about all things beauty. Jess was packed full of hair knowledge and spent a lot of time recommending great products for my hair type and providing useful tips and advice on how to keep my hair healthy and looking fabulous.

The end result had to be my favourite part of the Jamie Stevens experience! I left the salon with gorgeous, natural-looking highlights that were strategically placed to give me an on-trend and edgy style. The choice of colours used complimented my skintone and the layered, choppy cut perfectly framed my face. The overall look was exactly what I was going was clear the thorough consultation had paid off!

The Pro: The consultation was the best I've ever received at a hair salon. Jess, my stylist, was patient, extremely knowledgeable and - importantly - honest about what would suit me and what wouldn't.

The Con: The starting prices of most services are quite high, so this salon won't fit everyone's budget. However, if you deserve a treat or need to makeover your hair for a special event, I couldn't recommend Jamie Stevens highly enough!
