I recently spent a good few hours at Daniel Galvin Jr.’s Salon in Belgravia – a celebrity favorite… Initially, I was heading to try out a new detox treatment at the salon but due to the uneveness of my hair color, I had to sort that out stat before traveling. Daniel Galvin Jr’s Salon is based in the heart of Belgravia (in between Knightsbridge and Sloane square – fab!) The salon is exactly how a Chelsea salon would look except this one included the sweetest staff… I was pampered the second I entered the Daniel Galvin Jr. doors. I met the man himself, Daniel and fab hair colorist, Olyvia who has trained with Daniel who spoke to me about my hair and consulted me to go with reverse lights and low lights instead of what I initially wanted to go for, an all over color to even out the shade. They explained the process and how it would look, and why it would be better to go for that in the long run rather than just going with the easy way out – which I appreciated. You rarely get hairdressers that want to educate you and give you tips on how to help your hair in the long run.
Once the dye was removed from my hair – we moved on to my detox hair treatment with Argan Oil. The treatment started in the shower bar (a bar I say because it included a fridge with drinks, TV, and the chairs included massages!) using David Galvin Jr’s Argan oil (which has a lovely Orange blossom scent) that is applied throughout the whole hair, followed by head in steamer for ten mins and ended with a gloss (that includes organic vegetable oil) to add shine to the hair, which is left on for two minutes. The treatment, which Kelly Brook is a fan of – not only did my hair feel soft, gave my new color that great brightness to it, it was also so shiny – it reflected light off of my hair!
I ended the day at a salon with a fab blowdry with Mawit and I was out and about in the sun – SALON READY!
I always have a tough time recommending salons in London, but I can genuinely say – Don’t take the risk with color and taking care of your hair. I definitely recommend you popping over to Daniel Galvin Jr.’s salon.
