This heroic man tackled my holiday hair and whipped it back into shape!
He’s the talented scissor-fingers behind the world renowned Michael van Clarke salon and he invited me for a little session.
I’m finally home, back in the concrete jungle and could think of no better way to celebrate than with a much needed chop and some expertly cut sashimi.
I popped in to see Michael in Marylebone.
My once carefree, salty holiday curls were washed and brushed away… leaving a Hagrid like creature behind.
Michael apologised for letting me see myself this way (!) and got to work.
A terrifying amount of hair fell to my knees and slowly the old me started to peek through.
He explained that the whole cut is done dry, meaning he can work with the natural curl and shape of the hair.
Over two hours I lost inches and inches… but was left with fuller, bouncy looking curls thanks to the new layers.
I left with arms full of his “3 More Inches” products and a huge ruddy grin!

Before running straight to Soho for a lunch meeting.
Sadly I’m not allowed to tell you what it was all about yet… so I’ll just share the food instead!
Dozo is a seriously underrated sushi shop. Its humble facade gives away very little of the culinary wizardry inside.
Of course, this does mean that you rarely have to scramble for a table… so maybe that’s a good thing!
We kicked off with tuna tartar, avocado, quail egg & tobiko.
A jungle of sashimi.
Followed by seared white tuna, jalapeÃ±o & salad cress.
Salmon nigiri with spicy mayo, tomato, fresh shallot, sesame seed & spring onion.
Grilled scallops with apple dressing, grapeseed oil & kizami wasabi.
All topped off with my favourite…
I’m so happy to be back and can’t wait to see everyone, although I really could do with a fresh coconut on the beach…
