My new hair!
I have been dying my hair since I was 16 and remember buying these awful pots of red hair dye from Birmingham's equivalent of Camden Market in the 90's. The funny thing is, I have 4 sisters who all dyed their hair the same colour, so when we went out, we looked this a crazy red haired, brown skinned grunge band - believe me, it was awesome!
I have been going to Bleach since they first opened in Dalston a couple of years ago and was very lucky to have been introduced to who I think is the most amazing hair colourist ever, Alisha Dobson.
I wouldn't recommend having your hair done at Bleach if you're precious about customer service - don't expect a cup of tea on arrival, your hair to be washed with hot water, and pointless conversations about what you're doing on the weekend. It's more like going to your mates house when you're hungover and want to go a crazy colour because you're still drunk! Their laid back and blasé approach to hairdressing is slightly scary, the stylists look like they are randomly backcombing and twisting bleach into your locks, and then throwing flouro colours into your hair, proving that they really are true masters of their art because the end result is always super amazing.
I would highly recommend taking a trip down to Topshop Oxford Circus or Dalston for a super cool colour or just the good old bleachenders like me.
