I just wanted to bump this post.
Mellissa Hammond has been doing my hair for a couple of years now and I think she's fab. I have highlights done, as well as hair cuts and more recently Keratin blow dry's which are essentially hair straightening and conditioning treatments.
Mellissa comes to my house in Clapham which is super convenient. I tend to book her for lunchtime slots so that my kids nap while she does my hair. Obviously with young children they don't always comply and are often around but Mellissa is very accommodating and never minds my jumping up and down to deal with them-- she even opens the door for deliveries etc
I've found this to be both a time and cost effective way of getting my hair done and would thoroughly recommend her to anyone. In fact she now does my mum, sister and best friends hair....
