He’s also the stylist of choice for brands including Tom Ford, Miu Miu and Joshua Kane.

Whether you are looking for a cool ‘up do’, a big blow out or cut and colour, Luke Benson Hair has you covered. The team of creatives, have all been handpicked by Benson and spent time down at the Keune training school. This isn’t your ‘run of the mill’ hair salon, it’s a vibrant blend of skill, style, and a whole lot of personality. Let’s dive into what makes this place the talk of the town.

The goal is for clients to experience the full VIP treatment, “I want people to get the best service and the perfect finish that reflects what they came in for. Whether it’s a celebrity client or someone who has just popped in for a blow-dry, everyone gets exceptional treatment,” says Benson. Which is why he spends time nurturing talent and constantly sharing feedback on how his staff can deliver the best standards for their clients.

The team are certainly delivering that celebrity London service. I was given a full hair consultation with Benson and his senior technician, Lois Goddard, who applied a root drag colour based on the sun kissed blonde style I was looking to achieve. Benson took over for the cut and blow-dry, working his magic, resulting in a ‘I feel like million dollars,’ glossy finish.

The salon itself is like stepping into a chic hair haven. The design is on point, using contemporary colours and materials. The calming grey interior is juxtaposed with a fun pop of pink in the bathroom and staff room. When it comes to the design, the devil is in the detail and Benson tells me that he opted for specific colours and lighting to ensure clients hair colour and style always looks true.

Sustainability is at the core of the salon. The materials are mostly recycled, As well as Keune, they’ve partnered with brands like Easydry towels (both brands are B-Corp certified), and Leaf, the world’s first sustainable scissors who plant 10 trees for every pair sold. Benson says, “I’m really excited to have opened my first salon in my hometown, and to offer state of the art hair services in a sustainable environment.”

The vision is to open another salon within the next two years, followed by a select portfolio and I have no doubt it won’t happen. Benson is a creative and perfectionist, passionate about bringing all the flair and style of a big city salon without the commute.

When it comes to fabulous hair, Luke Benson Hair is the spot. Whether you’re looking for a total makeover or just some hair TLC, this place has got you covered.
