Harriet's new hair

Harriet's new hair

Charlotte Prichard, 16 May 2011

On Saturday I made my way to the famous Nina's Hair Parlour in Alfies Antique Market.  My hair has just been brown for too long - it was well overdue for a bit of a revamp.  If you haven't been to Nina's, get yourself down there: it really is a cute salon with loads of hair related curios, my favourite being the giant comb with a spirit level in for flat tops. Sami was my hair hero. He did magical things to my hair. I have had a bit of a phobia of hairdressers so he was the perfect cure, a real sweetie. First he turned me into a bottle blond: Harriet gets bleached Harriet gets bleached Harriet goes blonde And then we went crazy with the colour: Hair colour pots at Nina's Hair Parlour Sami masterfully went at my hair with three colours and painted them on, graduating down from yellow to mauve: Harriet in foils at Nina's Hair Parlour Harriet in foils at Nina's Hair Parlour This idea came after lusting after our stylist John's new hair: john Sami suggested I just get on and get it done and came up with this colour scheme. With all the tin foil stuck on it was rather Gaga but the magic was all happening inside. He put me under the drier and left me to cook with the Royal Wedding issue of Grazia, so I got to catch up on my royal gossip.  (There are pictures of the Queen everywhere in Nina's.) I love my new hair! Thanks Sami and thanks Nina for the advice and having such a cool salon and such a good selection of hits playing. Harriet Vine and Sami from Nina's Hair Parlour I almost can't wait until I get roots so I can go back.
