'Spend money on hair?' you say, 'Danielle spend money on hair??' you say, 'loyal to just one hairdresser?...you say! Yes it may sound strange but i think after 25 years of endless salon's, hairdressers who have been dumped, free model cuts and a few short disasters i think i may have finally found a salon i can and want to commit too! Renowned Tommy Guns has teamed up with British super brand Superdry, opening up their very own salon in the basement of the new, 4 floor HUGE, Superdry international store. Not just any old spa (that is conveniently round the corner from me on Regent Street) this beautiful space is a grade 1 listed art deco heaven and Tommy Guns have lovingly restored every aspect of this historic sight making you feel like you take a step back through time. Along with a team of highly qualified stylists the salon features a nail bar by Sophie Robson, a blow dry bar and lash bar.
A central location, perfect for a pre client meeting juuzzz up, the top qaulity treatments at competitive prices (£50 for a cut and blowdry) are a rare occurrence in the area. Many of you may still think Superdry is Japanese or American and just a load of hoodies and tees emblazoned with logos, BUT its more than that! A collaboration with Cheaney shoes and Timothy Everest coming up this year and some gorgeous new product lines (pastel denims, floral skirts and classic no logo jackets and macs) i think you may start to think twice about the brand so have a sneak around the store and see what you think.

I just LOVE this song from SBTRKT. Its Thursday's morning listening and is not helping my 'not drinking, not going out tonight' decision for the day. Its got undertones of squa bass lines but touches on 90's dance beats and drum and bass through the tonal vocals and shifty track lay. The music doesn't just stop at this gem, check out Pharaohs and Right thing to do featuring another musing 90's upcoming female Jessie Ware. They played an awesome set at Coachella and are coming over to the UK in June with a stop off at Field Day, London...so get your tickets in now!
