Anne Veck Salons
Muddy says: Arguably the best colourist in the county, the award-winning Anne Veck, French native turned UK snipper, has salons in Oxford and Bicester to tempt you.
I’ve had a second visit to the Anne Veck salon and was just as impressed this time round as the first.
There are two salons, one in Oxford, the second in Bicester, and they specialise fashion forward hairdressing with eco credentials (winners of Salon Business’ Best Green Salon Award 2017). The Oxford salon is just over the Magdalen Bridge on the ‘real’ side of the city, next to Cowley Road so prices are slightly lower than in the city centre and there’s less of a tourist squeeze.
Anne is a colourist supremo – her own hair is an avant garde Toyah-esque mix of orange and red – and there are plenty of gongs in the cupboard including Style Master International Winner 2016 and Southern Hairdresser of the Year 2016. Pierre, my young French cut and colourist who turned my hair punky orange for a while has won the Tribu-te Paris Young Talent award 2017, with style director Emmanuel Esteban won Afro and Anne Veck herself overall winner across all categories.
Basically, I’m a fan, and would recommend it particularly if you’re after a colour change.
