Michael Van Clarke apprenticed with some of London’s top hair stylists in the
hairdressing heyday of the glam rock 1970’s before opening his eponymous
salon in 1988. He got his first British Vogue editorial spread at just 19 years old
and has worked with nine Royal families, political leaders, models, rock stars
and actors. He now oversees a fifty-strong salon team servicing a global
clientele in an elegant Georgian townhouse in London’s Marylebone district.
Named ‘the most professional salon in London’ by British Vogue, it is the only
place where you can receive Michael’s signature Diamond Dry Cut™. Cutting
the hair clean and dry allows Michael to work with the hair’s natural movement
and texture, interpreted with face shapes and features, to create brilliant styles
with precision and balance. He is also the founder of the 3 More Inches line of silicone-free haircare, treatments and styling products, now available at us.vanclarke.com and Amazon.
Regular feeding and protecting with treatments is key. A feast and famine approach to treatments doesn’t work for haircare because a grand salon conditioning treatment ("hair botox") just once a month may be washed out by week two leaving the hair unprotected for the rest of the month.15 September 2022
Dehydrated hair is more likely to conduct an electric charge causing static hair. And heat styling can easily take some hairs beyond dry into over-dry which can lead to static. It’s more pronounced in winter months as the hair cannot recover moisture from the humid atmosphere of the summer months.15 September 2022
The scalp is an extension of the forehead so skincare shouldn’t stop at the hairline. In the same way that the rest of your skin sheds as it renews, your scalp is no different. It’s easy for dead skin cells on the rest of your body to fall away. Less so on top of your head within a forest of hair.15 September 2022
