We are thrilled to reopen our Harrow, Notting Hill and New Malden salons on the 4th July for hair appointments. (Beauty will follow when the government give us the green light).
To ensure our clients and teams safety during these uncertain times, there will be some changes to your appointment experience, and will be implementing some new guidelines.
We are all very excited to get back in salon, see our lovely clients and create some post lockdown transformations. However the safety of our team and clients will remain our primary focus in these uncertain times.
We have been preparing our salons for reopening on Saturday 4th July. We have purchased PPE for both our staff and clients to wear through each appointment. We have moved things around so that we can maintain social distancing throughout the salon and installed divides or shields where this isn’t possible.
When our clients arrive for their appointments they will be asked the following questions –
- Have you been tested for COVID-19?
- If yes, what was the outcome of the test?
- Have you had symptoms highlighted by PHE (public health England) of Covid-19 in the past two weeks?
- Are you currently in self-isolation?
- Have you or any of the people living at your address had symptoms of
- Have you, or anyone in your household, either received an official notification or otherwise would be considered under Government guidance, as being ‘vulnerable’ or ‘highly vulnerable’ to the effects of Covid-19, if contracted?
Walk-in appointments are temporarily not accepted, so please call your salon for an appointment. We also ask clients to come alone, and wait for their appointment outside so we can limit the number of people inside our salons.
We will be providing our clients with masks to be worn during appointments, as well as hand sanitiser to use throughout the appointment.
You will be looked after by your stylist alone throughout your appointment and consultations will be done through the mirror rather than face to face. We will not be serving beverages or be providing magazines, so bring something to read. At the basin we may only do one shampoo and will not be offering head massages.
Although the overall experience will be a little different you will still walk out with a beautiful do to be proud of!
Our O2 salon is not able to open yet because it is located within the Virgin Active gym and the government hasn’t allowed them to open. Our fabulous O2 stylists will be temporarily working from our Harrow and Notting Hill salons.

Looking forward to seeing you back in salon!!!

Millimetre Hair and Beauty Salons are doing our bit to keep our clients, our staff and the community safe, so have temporarily closed our doors from the 21st March, due to COVID-19.
As you will know, we are still in a very uncertain time, with COVID-19 having a far reaching impact on all our lives, both professionally and personally.
With our own Prime Minister currently in hospital, the government has delayed any announcements about the close down period. Which was announced for an initial 3 week period from March 23rd. Very early hopes are that the ‘stay at home’ policy in the UK is working, but the Chief Medical Advisors to the government are also making clear that we have not yet reached the peak of the virus.
Like us, you may feel a little overwhelmed by all the information coming out about COVID-19. But we want to assure you that we will be monitoring the situation and will let you know as soon as we are able and safe to open again.
We just wanted to take a moment to thank all our wonderful clients for your continued loyalty and support. We’d also like to take this moment to thank all of our teams at Millimetre for their dedication and hard work.
We look forward to welcoming you in salon again very soon and hope you stay safe and well.

Your hair goes through a lot over the summer – heat, pollution, UV rays, sea salt and chlorine can all contribute to hair cuticle damage and promote split ends.
That’s why we’ve come up with our top tips to stop split ends in their tracks so that you can keep your hair healthy, shiny and strong…
Leave it in
Use plenty of conditioner when washing your hair – it’s essential to closing the cuticle after shampooing and keeping your hair sleek.
Invest in a decent leave-in hair oil or a nourishing hair mask to really boost that shine. We would recommend System Professional’s Luxe Oil which is also a heat protector and can be used every day. You could also try the System Professional Keratin Restore Mask once a week to keep split ends at bay.
Turn down the heat
We know it’s hard to put down that hairdryer when you’re rushing out to work in the morning but laying off the styling tools will really help your hair to repair and grow.
Try washing your hair the night before and putting them into loose braids to avoid damage and bypass the hairdryer and curling iron the following morning.
Brush with care
Not dealing with tangles correctly and brushing your hair when it’s wet are two surefire ways to cause more damage to your hair.
When brushing our tangly hair make sure you brush down starting at the ends of your hair and making your way up to the roots. It will prevent hair breakage and also reduce damage to the scalp.
If you have to brush your hair while wet, make sure you use a Tangle Teezer to ensure that you are not snapping the hair cuticle. You can pick one up at your local Mm salon or ask your stylist for more info.
Go for the chop
When getting your hair trimmed, ask your stylist to cut about one and a half inches above your split ends. This will remove any damage and allow your hair to grow in healthy and sleek.
If you follow the steps above you should find yourself having to take less and less off each time as your split ends reduce.
Book a cut with your local Millimetre salon now and start your journey to shiny, split-end-free hair!
