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
    Covid-19?
  • 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.

Find your nearest salon HERE and call to book.

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.

This week we had a Q&A with one of our stylists Sam to discuss the power of the Sheer Gloss…

What is a Sheer Gloss?
A Sheer Gloss, also knows as a toner, is a semi-permanent colour service that adjusts the tone of your hair. It is commonly used after a lightening treatment, like highlights or balayage, to neutralize, enhance or brighten your hair. It can also be purchased as a stand-alone service to refresh or revitalise the tone of your hair.

Do I need a toner?
Ever had highlights that you thought were a bit brassy? That’s because when hair is bleached it naturally lifts to a warmer tone (think yellow and orange shades). After your hair has been lifted, a toner or Sheer Gloss can help to transform those undertones. Whether you want to create champagne, rose gold waves, or a platinum blonde crop – a toner can help you get the colour you desire.
A toner allows you and your stylist to have more control over your finished look so if this is important to you then we would recommend having one!

How long will it last?
Nothing lasts forever, and this goes for toners too. The healthier your hair, the longer it will last. This is because the more damaged your hair becomes, the more porous it is and the more likely your colour is to fade. Looking after your hair before and after colouring and having regular cuts is the key to make your hair colour last longer.

OK, you’ve won me over… where can I get one?
You’re in luck! It just so happens we are Sheer Gloss experts at Millimetre.

90s Hair Inspiration

Last month, some wild rumours were flying around that Friends was going to be pulled from Netflix. People lost their minds worrying that they were going to lose their daily dose of Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe. Eventually, Netflix chimed in on Twitter to reassure fans that Friends wasn’t going anywhere.

As fans, here at Millimetre, we couldn’t be happier! Friends is one of the most iconic 90s TV series – it made us laugh, cry and it also inspired us with looks and hairstyles over the years. To celebrate, we’ve picked our favourite 90s looks. Enjoy…

London Fashion Week 2019

London Fashion Week 2019The New Year just started and here in London we celebrated it with a fresh new Fashion Week.

Oversized and comfy clothes were all over the catwalk. And to be honest, after all the indulgence over the holidays, we’re not complaining!

Don’t need to be shy this season and mix as many colours as you like! We loved the switch between monochromatic fantasies and 90s retro style.

One look that caught our attention was the androgynous collections – one step closer to equality and gender fluidity.

Remember that if you feel inspired for a fresh new style,  book an appointment at an Mm Salon close to you!
