I’m slowly getting my hair cur shorter & shorter, having come to the conclusion that unless you have both infinite patience and an infinite wallet for pro blow drys, then very long hair on the over thirties requires a kind of maintenance that I just can’t be doing  with. And last week, with London Fashion Week about to kick off, it was time for my traditional pre-show hair cut.

So, last Wednesday, I finally took up the invitation I was proffered months ago to get my hair cut at Gielly Green, on George Street in Marylebone. Owned by Fred Gielly and Shai Greenberg, it’s a proper old school salon: seriously glamorous and indulgently pampering from the spa scented shampoo and horizontal padded hairwashing stations to the gently lit beauty rooms on the lower level.

Having had six inches lopped off a few months back, I had another couple hit the floor on Wednesday, and am very happy with the added volume that shorter, lighter hair brings to the party. (Altho I miss being able to tie my hair in a knot without pins.) Shai also gave me one of those fabulous glossy, bouncing blowdries, using nothing more than a hairdryer and a round brush, that makes you wish that other stylists would stop relying on buckets of gunk, curling tongs and backcombing and get back to basics.

It looks gorgeous, I have always wanted blonde hair like yours but have learnt to accept what I have been given eventually lol. I can imagine it does feel shorter but it looks very healthy and glossy which all ladies crave for!

Great blog post as always xxx

I’ve always wanted to be a blonde. I’m stuck with my black and coarse Asian hair. Suffice to say, I love your hair. I guess the grass (or in this hair) is always greener on the other side.

Please enjoy your 30’s without worrying about hair/skirt length. You are not too old for long hair – rather you are suffering from premature insecurity about your age. A good glossing shampoo & conditioner will bring shine back. Roll hair, or plait, at bed-time, for waves and shine. You have glorious hair – enjoy it x
