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.

Blow dry with Limoz, £45

Signature manicure, £25

The VIP guests were seen enjoying the courtyard which was transformed into a tangled wilderness with autumn trees intertwined with sparkling lights, hanging apples, haystacks and baskets of seasonal shrubs. The Chelsea based sunglasses brand, Taylor Morris Eyewear, have given their shack on the Bluebird courtyard an autumnal make-over. The luxury eyewear brand launched the ‘Taylor Morris Shack’, their first standalone retail space, on the terrace at Bluebird last Summer. After a successful season, the brand has transformed the Summer shack into an Autumnal store, in-keeping with the ‘Wild Table’ theme at Bluebird.

As well as celebrating the Autumn courtyard, Taylor Morris announced the second volume of their debut collaboration with British car manufacturer Morgan Motor, and even brought in a Morgan three-wheeler parked in the courtyard to illustrate the designs.  which was launched at the Bluebird last night.

One to Watch – Richard Quinn

 

The British Fashion Council (BFC) today celebrated the fifteen emerging designers who will receive NEWGEN support for the year ahead. Following the announcement of a new format, NEWGEN sponsorship is now awarded annually to both menswear and womenswear designers who will show at either London Fashion Week Men’s or London Fashion Week. This new format is focused on celebrating the incredible pool of emerging menswear and womenswear talent in London. NEWGEN offers designers the time and support to hone in on critical business skills to futureproof their businesses. Britain leads the way when it comes to nurturing and developing young talent, from early education through to helping designers establish their brands on a global scale.

NEWGEN is a BFC initiative that supports the very best emerging talent and aims to build global, high end fashion brands of the future. The scheme offers designers financial support and showcasing opportunities. The BFC, with support from the NEWGEN committee, will deliver individual mentoring and business training to assist the designers as they develop their business infrastructure and skills. NEWGEN designers are identified by their creativity, strong design aesthetic and point of difference.

Designers Alex Mullins, Ashley Williams, Craig Green and Faustine Steinmetz now graduate from the initiative.

Sarah Mower MBE, BFC Ambassador for Emerging Talent, Chief Critic, VogueRunway.com and Chair of the NEWGEN committee commented: “To be able to select NEWGEN for both womenswear and menswear side by side this year has given the scheme a panoramic overview of London’s strength as a centre-point of young innovation. We have all been energised to see a surge of diverse talents from so many backgrounds whose focussed individuality inspires us. It’s a privilege to be able to join with so many mentors from the UK industry who volunteer to join together to put these designers on the proven fast-track to recognition and business success

Caroline Rush CBE, Chief Executive British Fashion Council commented: “The new format of our NEWGEN initiative allows the BFC to be flexible in the support it offers emerging designers, and recognises the changing nature of fashion business and showcasing models. We want to empower these designers to build and strengthen their brands in close alignment with their creative vision. I am delighted as ever to welcome this year’s new designers to the initiative.”

A-COLD-WALL*, Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY, COTTWEILER, Kiko Kostadinov, Liam Hodges, Nicholas Daley, Phoebe English MAN and Wales Bonner will show at London Fashion Week Men’s in June.

Each of the NEWGEN designers will be allocated a dedicated pop-up showroom space within the Designer Showrooms at The Store Studios, taking residence after their show or presentation to host press and buyers appointments.
