Lisa Shepherd Express Color Bar
I'd never had my hair coloured professionally, my mum is the most talented hair dresser (now scientist to the stars) and has always had full creative control over my tresses. This was, until the opportunity to go and get my hair coloured at the Lisa Shepherd Express Color Bar* cropped up.
In a convenient location 5 minutes walk away from Oxford Circus tube station, this salon offers a truly bespoke service. After settling into the waiting area and getting to self serve hot or cold drinks (ideal, in my opinion), you are led over to the 'bar' where you're then handed a menu to pick what you would like done. The price list and range is fantastic and everything is guaranteed to be done in an hour or your money back! For £15-30 that's a pretty good endorsement. Considering I had some awful red box colour still refusing to budge, I opted for the 'Glossy Locks' experience where Mark dyed my hair a lovely shade of chocolate brown to cover the last of the red and make my hair shine.
The best part of my experience had to be that I bumped into the beautiful LaaLaa of Dolce Vanity. So unexpected and I'd missed her so much! Best surprise and we had a little time for a natter between sink hopping, colouring and blow drying. After the Redken colour was washed out, I went for the real Colour Bar experience and was placed at the blowdrying station. I went to town on all the Redken products at my disposal and was thrilled to see the end result.
Would you visit the Lisa Shepherd Express Color Bar?
*I was lucky enough to have my hair done for free, but would go back again in a heartbeat. My first salon experience was a success!
