“ Coming here is like stepping onboard a tiny yacht – all rounded mirrors and porthole-like windows overlooking Eel Brook Common. And very small. But cosy. And, because it’s Fulham, everyone seems to be blonde – such is the brilliance of Max and his scattered highlights ( he uses a board to get as close as possible – trickier, but results last uo to three weeks longer.) Pressed for time? His wife, Jessica, runs the Centini Blowdry Bar (www.myblowdrybar.co.uk ) on Harwood road. Half Head highlights, from £85. At 65b New Kings road London SW6 ( maxcentini.com; 02073841450)”
