Real Hair London salon review

I've been to a few salons. Okay, scrap that, I think I've probably been to half of London's hairdressers - at least once! And because of that, I haven't really stuck to a particular place - but I've discovered RealHair in Chelsea, and I think my salon-jumping ways may be coming to an end.
I can't really just go anywhere though, because (and I've made no secret of this) I have hair extensions, so I need somewhere that specialise in the type I have - which are tape extensions. Not sure what they are? Well, they're like two sticky tapes that go on either side of a small section of your natural hair, and sandwich it in the middle.

There are lots of good salons these days that offer all kinds of extension services, because so many of us have them now, but I like the quality of the new Beauty Works ombre tapes, and RealHair stock them.

Oh, hello. You caught me mid swish!
But that's not just why I go - I really like the way they look after your hair. Jonathan has done my tapes for me a few times now, and has always been fab. I know this should be a given, but isn't always the case in London - they are so professional and so lovely. Right from the skinny cappuccino when you walk through the door, to the bouncy blow-dry at the end. 

The salon is set up in the prettiest location as well, on a little square, 10 minutes walk from South Kensington station. I always wander around for a bit before my appointment, and stare lovingly at all the pastel houses (my dream homes!)

If you don't have extensions, they're also amazing at colour. Ask for Hannah if you want the best balayage in London - she's a pro at it. And if you need a blow dry, then you can book any member of the team and know you're in safe hands. Or, if they're fully booked, they have a blow dry bar just down the road - called Blo by RealHair.

The extensions - so  natural looking!
Prices for the different services vary, depending on your chosen stylist. Hair extensions don't come cheap, but I'd much rather pay for the quality, rather than leaving with synthetic, visible tapes or bonds.

Fancy giving them a visit? Have a look at the menu on their site and give them a call. I promise, you won't be disappointed!
