Figaro London is the creative idea of Thomas, an award winning hairdresser who had the vision to open a salon in a world-class city where people from all around the world could see and acknowledge his and his team’s creativity and talent. He set sail and went out to the sea of London – a city filled with vibrancy, culture and history, and opened Figaro London’s flagship salon right in the heart of the buzzing tech city and the financial district: in the middle of the Old Street – Barbican – Angel triangle.
We are lucky to have four incredibly talented and ambitious hairdressers on our side: Balazs, Dorothy, Bea and Abby, who all share our vision and passion to take on more and more challenges.
Timi, our lovely nail artist, manicurist and pedicurist does an exceptionally thorough and beautiful job – to the joy of our customers who were really keen to have their nails done whilst waiting under the hood.
We are so proud to have teamed up with one of London’s most talented and passionate beauty therapists in town, Edith, who is a joy to be around and a lovely-bubbly skin care expert and waxing specialist. Her expertise has won over customers from outside London too.
And Timka’s wonderfully artistic make-up skills combined with friendliness, empathy and professionalism are the icing on the cake.
We’ve been featured in Marie Claire online, contributed in London Fashion Week and other illustrious fashion photo shoots and filming projects. And most recently, we’ve been nominated for the Official 2019 Top Choice Award and got into the top 5 London salons, competing now to win the award. We’re very excited!
This year, our goals include to further educate ourselves in Creative Hairdressing, attend a British hairdressing competition, improve on our communication with customers, provide a wider range of services and opening more towards health related services in salon. Plus, we want our work to be featured in the British press.
Watch this space – we will keep you posted on how we are getting on.

A clippers cut will give your hair a sharp, blunt finish.
Usually, guys choose this type of haircut who don’t like to be noticed to have been to hairdressers. They just want a quick trim to freshen up, and be ready to go. It is also popular with guys who have slightly bigger ears.
We recommend this type of haircut if you want a bit of thinning out it is quick and you are ready to go. Also, we do this to cut around those difficult to reach areas such as behind your ears.

Toddlers, kids, teenagers – we love them all! All of our hairdressers know how to make your visit a nice experience for your little ones. We know that a haircut is not as exciting as playing with friends or gadgets, but we have a few tricks up our sleeves to make sure they leave the salon with a smile on their face.
Our approach to colouring starts with an assessment of your hair type, the pigmentation of your hair, your scalp condition and a consultation about your experiences so far. We would like to know about your likes and dislikes, and your ideal colour. We will then do our best to achieve a result that suits your look and personality.
We use Wella and Goldwell products because we know they deliver the results our customers are after.

VOLUME AND WAVES
With celebrities sporting many different hair styles and lengths within just days, there are now a lot of different types of hair extensions on the market for you to try out. Whether you are after longer locks, or want more volume, we have the solution for you. We only work with excellent quality 100% European human hair using the two most popular and not damaging techniques out there, which are Micro Ring Hair Extensions and Pre Bonded Hair Extensions. These provide a quality result that looks truly natural. We have samples in the salon which you are welcome to pop in and see anytime.
MICRO RING HAIR EXTENSIONS
Micro ring hair extensions are the number 1 application technique due to the fact that no glue or heat is required when applying; therefore it is safe and causes no damage to your natural locks. We recommend this if your natural hair is healthy and strong, but you are after longer locks.
PRE-BONDED HAIR EXTENSIONS
Pre-bonded hair extensions are used as individual extensions and come in many different varieties. We recommend this to ladies who would like a bit more volume.
PERMANENT WAVES AND CURLS.
By optimising the structure of the hair, we can create a basis for a more permanent solution to have volume that can hold waves and curls longer. Whether you are after smaller curls or a lighter wavy look, we can achieve it for you with L’Oreal’s perm solutions.
