Situated on Motcomb Street, SW1 one of London’s most exclusive postcodes also home to Christian Louboutin, Annick Goutal and Cosmetics à La Carte is the world leading Errol Douglas Salon. Founded by world renowned and respect celebrity hairstylist Errol Douglas, people travel far and wide to have their locks attended to by the super talented team of hair stylists and it’s no surprise why.
You can’t help but notice the warm and welcoming aura Errol Douglas Salon has the minute you step inside. Receptionists are happy to welcome you with a drink, hairstylists chat away with their clients and there’s a sense of family between the team which isn’t as easy to spot in other premium salons in London. Another thing that makes the Errol Douglas Salon stands out from others is that the stylists are experts in absolutely every hair texture whether it’s Asian, Afro or European hair.
With my tresses in need of some TLC I opted for the Moroccanoil treatment and a blow dry with Gladys Lopez, the salon’s senior hairstylist with a loyal Middle Eastern clientele. The Moroccanoil treatment involves a gentle shampoo followed by a head massage and sitting under a heat cap for the Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask to better penetrate the hair. After 20 minutes of sitting under the cap and catching up on the latest magazine issues, Gladys whisked me away to work her magic; note that if you do wear a headscarf or simply would like some privacy, the staff are incredibly accommodating to your needs and will gladly work on your hair in a private room. Gladys‘ technique along with the Moroccanoil products left my hair in the best condition its been in for a while – bouncy, shiny, soft and healthy!
For those in the beauty know, Errol Douglas’ Salon is in everyone’s little black book of London’s best beauty spots and it should be in yours too.
Prices for a cut and blow dry with Gladys start at £200 and £300 with Errol. For more information on other services and getting to the Errol Douglas Salon:
