Klaudia Balogh reviews the luxurious Limoz Logli Hair & Beauty Salon in Chelsea
A hairdryer for most women is an inevitable item in their bathroom. Me? Not so much. Although my hair is long, it’s quite curly, so it doesn’t behave too well under the blow of a hairdryer. Or at least not when I operate it. It gets frizzy, unorganized, and overall a disaster.
Even hair stylists struggle sometimes. Not once had I gone home and washed my hair only after having it done by a professional.
So, when I set foot at Limoz Logli Hair & Beauty salon in Chelsea just off Kings Road, I was rather worried. “Is this experience going to be disappointing or a pleasant surprise?” I was wondering.
There have only been three stylists in my 27 years who’ve got it right. One of them has been managing my hair for nearly two decades.
Luckily to me — and to my hair — Limoz Logli, the creative director of the salon, is now one of them.
I asked for a beach wavy style, which turned out to be his signature blow dry — loose soft waves with a slight volume on top.
I loved it. Besides the blow dry, my nails were getting some attention as well. While Limoz was drying my hair, Kristina Sablauskaite, the in-house manicurist, was filing my nails, tidying up the cuticles and finishing up with a classy dark red Shellac.
The salon’s ambiance is what makes it glamorous. It’s not one of those places where stylists rush through the wash and the blow dry, so they can be onto the next client. Here, they take time and don’t settle for less than perfect.
It’s a lovely atmosphere, very intimate and friendly where clients know they receive an exclusive treatment.
Limoz began his hair styling career in big salons then moved on to taking private appointments and lots of weddings. Although, he still does weddings, he’s been more focused on the daily appointments since opening the salon in December 2014.
He told me most of his clients are locals and regulars, too — I can see why.
Although it was a Friday afternoon and I had no evening plans, it felt refreshing to be pampered and to find a salon where I can trust to return to.
And I did. So soon as hardly a week later I was back for another blow dry to look the part for an event I was attending.
Because Limoz was all booked up, I sat under the hands of a senior stylist, Tatjana, and she did an equally great job.
Whether it’s the hair products they use or their expertise and experience, it’s reassuring to know there’s a salon in London where I can walk in with an idea of how I want my hair to look like and walk out with exactly that.
