Review: Zerolla Hair Bars

I came across these via my local whole food wholesalers Essential. Having tried so many shampoo and conditioner bars that I was dissatisfied with, I almost completely missed these and didn’t bother. However out of curiosity I looked up the ingredients, just in case there was a worthy list for me to try out something […]

Mysterious Shampoo BARS

Shampoo bars! They come up in conversation a lot. Either as a proud declaration of being “green/natural/eco” because “I use a shampoo bar”. OR I get told “I used one for a bit but didn’t get on with it” upon further probing it is always because of this mysterious waxy/dirty feel they leave. Let me […]

The "Beautiful" world of Hairdressing

Hairdresser or Hair Stylist or Hair Artist, whatever you want to call them and no matter how you call them, the stereotypes and connotations around this industry are interesting.

Olivia - Google

“Probably the best hair cut I've had in a decade, and the most comfortable I've ever felt having a cut. I was so impressed by the wonderful atmosphere and professionalism of this salon.”

Jo - Google

“It's rare that you get to say that someone is doing something truly innovative. This is a totally different experience to the usual salon and all for the good.”

Sarah - Google

“Best haircut I've had in years. Would highly recommend. Loads of tips for haircare and they really listened to what I wanted, made notes and double checked the pictures I had brought along.”

Ginny - Google

“I don't normally leave reviews, but after today, I just had to. This was the best haircut of my life. No joke. I've tried so many salons that Bristol has to offer,  but none of them come close to Tame The Mane and their sustainable ethos and curl knowledge. I have found my hairdresser for life, and couldn't be happier.”
