Recently I wrote about Our Place Salon in Potts Point because it’s run by Brits and is easily the friendliest salon I’ve ever been to. Finding a decent salon in Sydney is incredibly hard and after being here for 6 years, I can reveal this is THE salon to visit. Not only do I feel comfortable for the 3 hours I spend there every 8 weeks, but I feel like I’m visiting friends when I go in. The Owner Clive Allwright is a character and his jokes and stories are incredibly infectious, it’s not hard to feel comfortable in this salon.
I’ve spoken to friends and work colleagues and most hate going to the hairdresser, simply because it’s an uncomfortable experience. I could totally agree that I used to dread it. That awkward silence, do you speak to the hairdresser and make small talk whilst they are cutting your hair? Worst of all, you’re sat there watching them literally destroy your hair and if you’re like me, I don’t say anything and just think about how quickly I want to leave. It can be an excruciating experience. But, when I found Our Place Salon it all changed for me.
Having fun with Clive, owner of Our Place Salon
Last time I went to Our Place Salon I filmed it, so I could show you what a great find it really is and the essence of how much fun it is there. The postman came in and sat with everyone, having a cup of tea, that’s how easy going it is. Everyone (stylists and clients) all sit having a laugh together. See below to see what I mean!
Having fun in the salon
So, recently I had a bleach, cut and a keratin (a smoothing treatment) with Clive and new British staff member Becky. Becky worked at Headmasters in UK and has only been in Australia for 5 months. To me, this is a good sign because hair cutting is so much more experimental and forward thinking in UK so you know you’re onto a good stylist! She didn’t disappoint either. The colour and keratin were amazing!!
New stylist Becky, moved to Sydney from UK just a few months ago and she is awesome!!
From straw, dry hair to smooth, shiny, ice white blonde!
From dodgy routes to icey white hair!
Because I had a keratin, you have to use shampoo that’s free of sulphate so I stocked up on their MUK range. I used to think products salons sold weren’t very good, so I never invested until Clive told me all about MUK. I can honestly say, MUK is an incredible brand. It’s all Australian and it’s the only brand that’s actually made my dry hair shiny!! The treatment oil and shine spray are my absolute favourite, oh and the treatment conditioner – OK all of it is my favourite!! If you have bleached hair, oh for that matter, just dry hair, I strongly recommend using MUK!
MUK haircare products are seriously the best!!
My friend also called Becky saw my Instagram posts about how I was raving on about Our Place and checked it out herself. She absolutely loved it and you can see why below!
