I remember the feeling when I had a new hair cut and couldn't wait to go back to school with my new barnet, apart from that one time when it was wayyyyyy too short and I ran away from school because I looked like a boy after a sweaty P.E session. It was the same feeling I got when I had new school shoes too. Or is this just me?
Brooks & Brooks is a stones throw away from Holborn Station on the Central and Piccadilly lines so super easy to get to. It is one of a few independent shops on Sicilian Avenue which wouldn't look out of place on the streets of Italy. Small boutique shops selling spaghetti, stems, sandwiches and spectacles and yes it really does look as good as it sounds.
We entered though the huge wooden door, past the jar of brownies that you can help yourself to and into our seats for the consultation to began with our designated stylists Grace and Rosie.

Brooks & Brooks are three times winners of London Hairdresser of the Year along with a whole library of accolades.
It has a great atmosphere which leaves you feeling super relaxed with it's rich decor and wooden floors.
Grace was telling me the day after our appointments she was styling up hair backstage to the rich and famous for GHD at London Fashion Week. What lucky tea bee's we were.
Ta-Da - This is obviously the after photo right there.
If you are ever in need of your barnet taming when down in that London make sure you give these guys a go. Plenty of tea and biscuits and super friendly service. You will find them at 13-17 Sicilian Avenue, London, WC1A 2QH
