Maison Style is a chic new boutique salon located in Tulse Hill, South East London. Founded by hairstylist Andree Marie, it offers a premium, full range of Afro hairstyling services at prices that won’t break the bank. Andree says, “All of our stylists are fully qualified and have dedicated themselves to lifelong hair education, this means when you visit our salon you can rest assured that whatever stylist you have has the ability to deliver the result you are looking for.” Our salon tester Rosemary Russell wanted to give her hair a break from everyday styling and opted to have a braided hairstyle done at Maison Style. See how she got on by reading below.
What was your hair like prior to treatment?
Prior to visiting the salon, my scalp and hair was dry and in a natural Afro.
What did you hope to achieve with your salon visit?
I wanted a modern creative look, which allowed my natural hair time to rejuvenate.
Describe the decor and atmosphere of the salon…
The decor was modern and beautiful, decorated in a black and white colour scheme. The environment set the tone for relaxation, and the hairstylists offered refreshments and good conversation. What particularly stood out was the great attitude of the stylists
What treatment/style did you have?
Both the salon and I felt my hair could do with a break, so I opted for cornrows, with a twist on the Lemonade hairstyle. My stylist Beverly washed and conditioned my hair to rehydrate it. She gave my scalp a scrub to remove dead skin, and applied a moisturising conditioner. Next, my hair was blowdried then cornrowed with synthetic hair extensions. I really loved the fact that my she took great care to ensure that the colour was to my liking, as I requested to mix reddish brown with black in the cornrowed plaits
What products were used for your treatment?
What advice were you given about upkeep and aftercare?
To wrap my hair when sleeping to maintain the style, and try and use a shampoo suitable for braids as required.
Were the results what you expected?
My finished style was great. The cornrows were done swiftly and beautifully. Beverly made sure she wasn’t hurting my scalp whilst cornrowing, which I was grateful for. She also left out my baby hairs so they would not break, and after cornrowing applied some foam and placed me under a dryer. For a finishing touch she placed some beads and gold hair accessories throughout the hair, the overall result was fantastic.
Would you consider returning and if so, in what capacity?
Yes, I would revisit the salon as a regular customer, I have already been back. Again, fantastic service and experience. Such a professional, impressive salon, I would definitely recommend it.
