If you haven’t been to Dalston yet, the new upcoming East London’s hip area, then you should hurry ,because not only you will have the chance to get a great haircut, but you will also meet the craziest hair-salon crew, who definitely knows how to party!
The “Blue tit” is the new trend in Dalston, owned by three creative hairstylists, who wanted to make the salon a trademark for the area, but also provide a different approach to what a hairdresser’s should look like.
From the moment we entered the place, we were sure that they would rock the photoshoot. However, we didn’t expect that they would invite us to their party the same night.
While drinking gin with tonic, dancing, laughing out loud and talking about new hippie-chic looks, we were observing the salon’s decoration as something unique and maybe brought back from some other decade of the past.
You can find photographs everywhere, even in front of the sockets, because it would be too boring and conservative to plug in your hair-dryer in an ordinary slot.
The clothes that the crew was wearing couldn’t be more London-ish and make me feel like putting on my own bow-tie and the next time that I will find myself in London, visit “Blue tit” and get a first-class HairCut!
Can you find a cosier place for upgrading your style?
