Split Second

I always liken finding the right hairdresser to finding the right boyfriend – it can take a lot of wrong ones to find the perfect match. So I was really pleased to find a perfect award winning hair and beauty salon tucked away on the main street in the village of Sherburn-in-Elmet, in North Yorkshire.

Split Second is headed up by Julia Westlake and her team.


I’d grown bored with my DIY blonde hair, grown out layers and generally needed to change it up a little.

After a consultation with my stylist Kirsty to discuss what I wanted to achieve with my hair, a cup of tea was delivered. Kirsty suggested adding some blonde just through the top of my hair and around my face. So after foils were applied I settled down to make a start on this months book club read, The Kashmir Shawl by Rosie Thomas.

Thirty minutes later Kirsty did a neat cut to frame my face, and some serious good fringe reshaping.

Finally I got to see the completed look and I was so happy with the way it came out. I received the perfect length cut and took advice on how I can wear it several ways.

It’s not often you find a salon that will really listen to what you want and also offer advice on what suits you best!

This makes me want to make a note in my diary to return in six weeks for another date!

Julia and her beauty therapists offer a full range of services to meet their clients’ needs, from shaping eyebrows, manicures, facial and body treatments, to holistic therapy and massage.
