Finding a good hair stylist is like finding a husband – you need to trust them with your life, they have to be available when you need them most, and they have to put up with your moods. I had amazing hair stylists back in Sydney and when I moved to London, I had to find someone to look after my hair.
Like dating men, I had to try a few different stylists in London before finding the right one. I tried some freelancers, a few salons, but I wasn’t happy – and a good or bad hair day can make or break my mood, so it’s important! Hahaha.
So I’d been stalking Max Borges’s Instagram page since I first arrived in London. I’d seen his work with blonde hair and I decided that we would make a great fit!
I’m not sure if you’re familiar with Asian hair, but it’s not easy being Asian and going anywhere near blonde. Find the wrong stylist, and you end up in the middle of an orange hair Asian tragedy!
I currently have some tape extensions in, but my hair is growing well now – so hopefully I won’t need them for too much longer. But tape hair is not all that popular in London, so I wanted to see someone who was familiar with tape (rather than clip in extensions) and would look after my hair – and Max did just that! He even did a patch test before we started the whole process just to see how far he can take my hair without it being damaged. (Guys!! you do not want your hair to fall out!!) He used bond angel on my hair to allow the bleach to work without damaging it. Finishing up the process, he does a deep treatment while I get my make up done by Jessica (her Instagram page is here.)
Max is giving my UK readers £50 off colour and highlights and £20 off any other services! Just mention MISSGUNNER when you book! His phone number is 020 8964 1000 – 601 Harrow Road W10 4RA, just north of Notting Hill (Tuesday to Saturday 9am-7pm).
Thanks Max for looking after my hair!! Find details of my outfit below!
