Eleven, A review

When I say hair-raising, I mean it in a good way. I'm a busy little blogger, Not only do I churn out some pretty awesome blog posts daily I am also a mum of three children who seem to think that my only role in life is to serve them. (sigh, don't they know I have Jeremy Kyle to watch?)

So for me hair cuts are pretty thin on the ground. When I was asked when I had last had my hair cut, they might as well have asked me when was the last time I had a dry weekend!!! I really couldn't remember.

So when I was asked if I would like to have my hair cut at Eleven Hair I have to admit I leapt at the opportunity. Eleven is nestled in the heart of the bustling hub of Oxford Circus just behind Bond St. When I looked at the website I was slightly concerned that it would be "cutting edge" and "so hip it hurts" but when I entered the salon I was immediately struck on how calm and friendly it is.

It was like a oasis of calm in a sandstorm.

My stylist Rebecca didn't even flinch when presented with my mop of hair and listened to me while I explained exactly what I wanted. she snipped, brushed, blow dried and left me with a style that is exactly what I wanted.

The whole ambience of the salon was fantastic. I was concerned that they would be very bang on trend being so close to Bond St but the whole feel of the salon was as if it was my local hairdressers who I had just popped into for a trim. Calm, friendly and extremely professional. it really was the WHOLE hairdressing experience.

Of course you do

My lovely stylist Rebecca,

This was the before shot. (Please excuse the wonky cleavage)

and after. LOOK, I have style!!!!!! I have swish and I look like I've just stepped out of a salon.

The view from behind.

Now this style transformation happened a couple of weeks ago and I am still finding it so easy to style. it just falls where it is meant to, which is perfect for a busy mum on the run who still wants to look good.

Eleven is a fabulous place to go, not for a one-off hair cut but regularly. it has a friendly vibe and I felt comfortable from the minute I walked through the door. My stylist Rebecca gave me some great advice regarding looking after my hair and I will hopefully be returning soon for a trim.

Eleven is at 11 Blenheim Street, Mayfair, W15 1LL

    It was only after a while of cleavage I realised this was about hair.

    Still, I'm impressed that you can blog for both genders, cleavage for those that would see their partner bowl in with a new hairstyle and be asked "Have you noticed anything different" and be met with the reply "yes, you forgot to get milk while you were out" and also hair for women.

    Now, back to that cleavage....

  2. That's a great cut. Really suits your cleavage, sorry, face.
