Bird’s Eye Review: George Northwood and Pureology Haircare


I was in need of a much over due hair cut and was interested to find a hairdressers that used vegan products.   I was highly recommended the wonderful central London salon, George Northwood.  Located just behind busy Oxford Circus, this gem of a place is relaxing and tasteful and I immediately felt comfortable in it’s plush and beautifully decorated surroundings.

Upon arrival, I was offered a Bloody Mary as apparently that’s their Saturday treat but I declined as daytime drinking doesn’t really suit me.  They also offer a Vegan tuck shop which includes quinoa chips, kale crisps, nakd bars, bounce balls, dried mango and cashew nuts.  How amazing is that?


After my consultation, I went for a Balayage colour treatment and a significant chop for my new shoulder length do.  My colour treatment was washed out and my hair conditioned using Pureology products.  I was in love at first smell.  Specialising in colour care, these products are vegan and made with plant extracts and I’m told, also have an anti-fade complex.  I was won over immediately and purchased the Strength Cure  shampoo and Perfect for Platinum conditioner to use at home and I have been really impressed.  They both leave my normally tangle ridden hair, manageable and super soft.  I would highly recommend them and would say they are definitely worth the rather high price tag.  Certainly the best vegan haircare products I’ve tired so far.  And here’s the result:


I loved the service I received at George Northwood (thank you to my wonderful colourist, Amy and fantastic stylist, Lotte. I will most definitely be going back again.  Find out more and go book an appointment here:
