Salon Review – Mahogany Hair Spa Milton Keynes


When Tope Beesley of Mahogany Hair Spa and the Mahogany Naturals product range gave me a call to invite me to her salon I was delighted. I was yet to try the Mahogany Naturals range and I loved the fact that she also styled hair.

Tope Beesley 

Mahogany Hair Spa is based in Milton Keynes so last weekend I took my little car up the M1 to check it out.  I always hear jokes about Milton Keynes and roundabouts but on arriving into the town I found it’s actually true. I went through roundabout after roundabout and I was starting to wonder if I was going around in circles but I got there ha-ha.

Tope rents a chair inside another salon which is bright calm and clean, they also do nails in there if you fancy it. There is lots of parking there but you have to pay this didn’t bother me it was definitely not London prices.

So what did I have done?

To start with hair was shampooed twice, first with Ayurvedic moisture rich shampoo then with the SUPER Re-constructive Rhassoul & silk amino acids shampoo bar…oooh having your hair washed by someone else…that’s a real treat for me.

Then a treatment was applied for me to go under the steamer, this was the Rhassoul, Cocoa & Honey Deep Hair Treatment.

Shrunk up hair, ready to steam 
Look at this portable lovely steamer and its not a huetiful one either. 
I went under the steamer for about 15/20 minuted my only bugbear is I wish she had put a plastic cap on me, as I went under with my hair loose, water it just dripped down my forehead and face. That said when I came out my hair was SO soft the steam treatment was worth it.

She styled my hair in these rows as you can see they all sort of go to one side and I like them. Its a good protective style which my hair certainly needs!  



Unlike other salons she just did my hair from wet, she did not need to blow-dry my hair first. Tope’s hand is gentle, I felt no pulling or stress on my hair whilst she braided. Each time she parted my hair she used a mixture of the luscious hair milk and moisturising curl gel styler on each section.

When my hair was done she put on some some Ayurvedic herbal hair oil and I was good to go.

I enjoyed my visit to the salon and would go again. I think the most important thing when you are visiting a hairdresser is to be made to feel relaxed and happy and during my time there I felt I was chit chatting with an old friend. 

A deep conditioning steam treatment is £25 and the natural style is £50

  1. Sounds great, I’ve been meaning to try those products!

    She didn’t put a cap on you under the steamer because apparently it’s best if the steam is left to penetrate the hair shaft (or at least, that’s what it says on the huetiful website)

  2. Your looks so nice and shiny. I’m so jealous of you right now! I just moved from London to Calgary, Canada and I am missing my natural hair stylist so much. My hair is in dire need of a trim and I am really contemplating doing it myself. Seriously thinking about sneaking back to London!

    • Wow that’s a big move, is there a natural community there yet? perhaps you can start one.
      Loads of natural’s do trim themselves though, there are loads of video’s on YouTube…if you are desperate 🙂 Yes my hair was done really well.

  3. Hi Angel,
    What was the make of the steamer that Tope used for your hair?
    Thank you.

    • hi Aku it was a generic brand from Ebay.works just as well.last me about 1 year before i replace it and i use it a lot.
