The two words that come to mind when I think about Leona are “miracle worker”. Up until about 9 months ago, my 53-year-olld hair had suffered about 35 years of colour damage and was straightened daily just to try to get it to look decent. I had become increasing intolerant to the chemicals used in traditional salon colour products and suffered for at least a week after every colour treatment – considering that I had to have permanent colour every 3 weeks to cover the grey, that was hard to bear. I heard that Leona had moved to Abingdon and was offering organic treatments and thought that I should at least try it.
From the first visit, I knew I had found something special. Leona was kind (and tactful) about the condition of my hair, and suggested that we tone the, by then, quite artificial colour, by taking lowlights close to my natural colour all the way through. Along with that we would start working on the style, because I thought that my only option was to cut it all off and start again. What a difference a few hours makes! My hair was transformed even after the first visit, and there was no nasty itchiness to deal with or colour stained forehead. Leona continued on this path for the last nine months, and we also tried an organic hair relaxing treatment.
The result is pretty amazing. My hair is now a very natural looking colour, soft, shiny and completely manageable, and I have DOUBLED the time between visits. The style is back with no split ends or frizziness, and it’s growing. My hair can even stand a bit of rain without turning into a lifeless mop! On my most recent visit we put some highlights back in with her “seaweed product” – I’m really loving that!
I promise you will not regret a visit to Leona. Her passion for what she does, her fun and her kindness are inspiring. And I’m still not absolutely sure how these organic products work, but they do – and in my case, nothing has ever worked better. Good hair days 95% of the time.
A little touch of MAGIC in Abingdon!
Leona has been the hairdresser for myself and my two children, now teenagers, for over 10 years. Leona is an excellent stylist - in fact the best I have come across - and I have in the past used the well known high street brands. Leona has a good eye for colour and has encouraged me to use colours in my hair that I would not have considered. I have followed Leona with her journey into organic hair products and they really work. I can highly recommend Leona and you will not be disappointed.
