When I arrived, there had been an rare mix-up with the booking and I discovered that I had been booked in for same day, but on the following week. Fearing the worst, as I had an important date the following day, I was concerned.... However, nothing was too much trouble to rectify this! Vincent, my colourist, quickly offered to forgo his lunch hour to ensure that my roots were beautifuly retouched and added several clever foils, in order to break up the parting and guarantee me a lovely sun-kissed barnet.
I had delicious coffee and chocolate brownies proferred (and as a result ate far too much) and a sensual and welcome head massage. Plus, in no longer than one and a half hours, I was back out in the sunshine with hair-to-die-for - and a date I was able to keep! Would not hesitate to return.
Now I'm not a West London girl myself, but if I were to live in W11 I know just where I'd go to get my barnet chopped. I've been recommended to this salon by my immaculately coiffured West London compadre, who informs me the service is second to none.
Aside from an initial free constulation, they offer a range of holistic treatments including phyto hair and scalp treatments and the wonderfully named 'Micro Mist Steam Treatments'. Plus, you needn't feel stomach pangs when you're in the chair, they offer complimentary drinks menu including great coffee (espresso, latte and more), wine and beer all served with homemade chocolate brownies or olives. Hairstyling has never been so satisfying.
Although I only came in thus far for a bang trim, I really enjoyed my experience. The front desk and the hair stylist were very friendly and efficient. I liked that even though I was not a regular customer the stylist took the time to ensure I liked the bang trim and it was just right. I will have to come back sometime for a cut!
I have naturally curly hair and have had a few nightmare experiences with hairdressers before. After a lot of searching, I came across Kell Skott, specifically, Shyli. I booked my appointment and wasn't disappointed. The consultation was thorough and felt I was in safe hands.
I was really pleased with the cut and the colour and look forward to going back in a few weeks.
The salon is relaxed and provide plenty of drinks and lovely brownies to boot!
I tested every salon in Notting Hill and North Kensington before I found Kell Skott. In this salon I found what I value - brilliant hairdressing skills and a friendly, no attitude service. I have tried every junior in both salons I think for blow drys, and several for cuts and colours. I haven't had a disappointing experience yet, which is saying quite a lot as I have quite ummm challenging hair and expectations!
I have been visiting the salon for a few years and have always walked out with the perfect hightlights. In london is it so hard to find someone who will do them right and once you find that person you will stick with them forever. Thats what I have done with Shyli from Kell Skott, she is the only one who will be doing my highlights forever.
I'd been swapping hairdressers every three months for the past 5 years until i found this place! Walking into the salon is one of the most calming experiences you can get during a busy day in London. The staff are attentive, creative, professional and exceptionally friendly with none of the posturing you can sometimes get in a hairdresser round these parts. This new branch just off Westbourne Grove has the same chilled feeling as the original and i've gladly followed Shyli, the chocolate brownies and fabulous mint tea there!
