I love Fitzrovia. I love the back streets packed with history, the cafes, the restaurants and new shop fronts are popping up all the time… so I was very excited to be invited along to one of its more recent arrivals, HARE & BONE for a cut and dry…. oh, and a glass of pink champagne….
HARE & BONE arrived on Great Titchfield Street a few months ago and is the creation of award winning hair stylist, Sam Burnett. And he REALLY knows his stuff. I could name drop till the cows come home. But I won’t. (Daisy Lowe). Sorry. (Jessie J). Oops.
I booked my appointment for the week after my return from Wilderness festival, as I knew my hair would be in a bit of a sorry state and in need of some serious TLC.
The salon is not huge, but feels spacious and has a lovely relaxed vibe to it. Everyone is smiley, the music is great, the decor is cool, punky and understated and there are pretzels. Sold.
Tommy was my hairdresser and he did EXACTLY what we discussed and what he said he’d do. Which, in my experience, is fairly unusual. It must be frustrating for a creative hairdresser to be given a brief of ‘tidy it up’ or ‘just a trim’, but he approached my hair with the same amount of passion and gusto as he would had I asked for a neon mohican… and he cut it beautifully.
And he used a couple of great products on my hair as well…
Tommy and I had a great chat about all things hair, noodles and Wilderness Festival (apparently he was leading some sort of naked dance in the woods at the festival- sounded excellent) and he also told me about the Blow Dry Breakfast Club they offer at HARE & BONE. You can can turn up between 8am and 10am for a 30m or 45 min bow dry and brekky! So you’ll be in ship shape for your meetings and your tummy won’t be rumbling neither.
I loved my chop and I’ll definitely be heading back to HARE & BONE for future hair cuts, trims, blow dries and general hair-sorting-out-nesses.
And for the pretzels too. Obvs.
I was invited to Hare & Bone and if I hadn’t loved it I wouldn’t have written about it.
