Charlotte Mensah salon in London is where Influential Women of Colour Get Their Hair Done. It took me over three years to realise this until I recently moved to the neighbourhood. Charlotte and her team treated me like a family. I went back the next day to touch up my curls.
I had gone to the salon to review the services. My angle was the best salons in London for afro hair and curly hair. I visited other salons in London before for black hair and did not have the best results. I travelled from Paris to get my hair done because France needs help with black hair.
On the day in the salon, it was so beautiful to see customers of all ages walk out so happy. Charlotte had a lot of girls like me to come in and want advice on how to do their hair. All left with smiles on their faces and brought Charlotte’s in house products to take care of curly hair.

Charlotte and her team greet you with a smile, tea and cake. Then help you decide what you are going to do with your hair. We all become one big hair family. It was like a networking event. Especially since I just moved back to London from Paris. I need to network to get into the groove and meet people in the industry.
I found that just getting my hair done at Charlotte’s was better than going to a cocktail hour. Charlotte is one of the hairdressers that listen to what you think you want. Then gives you advice about your hair that you need. I wanted to go blonde, and she said: ” NO, your hair is lovely now, and if you go blonde. You will ruin it.” We decided to keep my hair red. She mentioned that she had predicted that red hair colour will be a trend for women like me in 2020.

The following day when I came back to get a touch up on my curls from her nephew Kacey. She told me that her Instagram loved my colour and cut. I confirmed that our own followers agreed. Nothing makes me happier than getting my hair done, and after it looks fabulous. Her nephew Kacey is a wizard with a curling wand. And Charlotte understands that colour has to also match your complexion.
A luxury hair salon in Notting Hill that knows what my hair needs at all times is critical. When I left the salon, my hair blew in the wind and was soft. After she coloured my hair, she gave me Manketti Oil treatment. Then I sat under the steamer to make sure the treatment was sealed into my hair. This is what gave my hair the softness that I want every week. I could not believe how soft my hair was after the treatment.

My hair cost about £160 for colour, Oil treatment and cut. To me, I am worth it. I felt fantastic walking out of the Charlotte Mensah salon in London. I was smiling from cheek to cheek walking down Portobello road. Now that I also live in the neighbourhood, I am sure I will be a repeat offender . Charlotte nailed the colour and Kacey nailed the curls. They even taught me how to keep up the curl and I am doing it.
It was also welcoming to sit and hang out with the other customers. We started a new girl groom of all ages. It was too cute to see the young women of mixed race cultures learn how to take care of their curly hair. I made new friends of all ages from London to Sweden and Nigeria and back. I also meet Frenchies like myself and American women all in one place.
Than you to Charlotte Mensah and her team gave me confidence and tips. They gave me the 101 on how to take care of my hair. She also has her own line of products to take care of your hair. With wealthy ingredients to give you the moisture you need. I can not wait to go back and get a roller set. I hope I can say no to her cake because it is too good just to have one slice.
