Salon Review - Gielly Green

I have been groomed!!


This afternoon we switched roles with the hubby as I set off to get my hair done and review the Gielly Green boutique salon just off Marylebone High Street in London. Now... I have been using their haircare and absolutely love it as mentioned in my November favourites so had high hopes for the hair experience I was about to get. Needles to say I wasn't disappointed!


The boutique salon is absolutely beautiful, it oozes luxury and is very sleek yet welcoming with its muted tones of earthy colours used throughout the decor, it's a one stop shop for all things feminine. They do hair treatments, brows by Shavata, facials, body treatments, tanning, hair removal, manicures and pedicures (they use Essie polish) and they also have their own product line as mentioned before.

On to my experience...

Here's what my hair looked like before! A bit of *cough cough* a mess. I hadn't had a proper colour or cut in months, the home box dyes and DIY trimming obviously doesn't count!


I had a nice conversation with the colourist 'Tanya' and 'Fred Gielly' the art director and one of the owners of the salon about the colour I wanted. We decided on subtle sun kissed highlights along the T-Section with an overall cooler brown base. Tanya also corrected the results of my DIY home dying as the colour wasn't consistent and a bit too warm toned.



The results of the T-section highlights are beautiful and natural, in the past I have always had a half or full head of highlights which has been too overwhelming.


I had a trim and yes Fred actually did what I asked him too, some hairdressers get carried away and chop off more than you bargained for. The results are luscious long layers and I just love it!



The T section highlights cost £65 with Tanya a junior colourist and the wash/cut & blowdry with Fred (artistic director) costs £115. This for me is on the pricy side, but it's worth it if it makes you feel fabulous, and yes ladies I feel fabulous with my new hair!


A much needed treat for a new mummy as I have been feeling far from fabulous the past few weeks, I'm lucky if my hair gets a brushing, but hopefully my new hair will inspire me to make the extra effort in my daily routine! :)

In case you hadn't realised, I didn't pay for this experience as I was lucky enough to review it for the blog, this has NOT affected my opinion, if I hated it and came out crying you still would have known about it!

Apparently December is the busiest month for getting your hair done, Are you getting your hair done for the festive season?

Your hair looks amazing and looks like it has really grown. I'm trying to summon the courage to get my hair cut before Christmas first but I need to find a really good salon in my area first . Great review. Wish I lived closer to Gielly Green.

Your hair looks FABULOUS!

I think if you find a stylist that does exactly what you say, don't let him or her out of your paws. The hairstylist I have now is fantastic. She doesn't use a razor (razors are bad for those with fine, fragile hair), cuts only what's needed, and listens! Keep your paws on those ones! They're rare!

I got mine done on Saturday and I, of course, left a happy client. Long layers and a nice bang trim! I tell you want, my bangs needed it!

I totally agree with treating yourself. New moms all deserve a trip (or two) to the spa.

Gorgeous hair. You look so beautiful.
