Your hairstyle is only ever as good as your last cut, which has always been the case for my hair. Recently, I decided to visit Tal Fisher at his newly revamped hair salon, Carte Blanche, for a cut and some colour, and I can tell you this: Tal gives good hair. Weeks later and I still get the “Love your hair!” compliments, so that’s why I recommend making an appointment with Tal to see for yourself what a difference a great style can make in your daily hair routine. No appointment? No problem! They love walk-ins.
What prompted me to give Tal and his salon a try was that I often ran into Tal in the past at events and always found his hair to be ultra-stylish. My one rule of thumb when it comes to hair is that if a hair stylist has good hair, then they’ve got to be able to give it. And Tal is no exception to that rule – he’s been styling hair for over 15 years. He began by cutting hair in his mom’s basement and now, mother and son work side by side in this family-run salon, although there’s nothing mom & pop about it: Carte Blanche is a contemporary salon that caters to all types of clients and uses the latest products, namely Kérastase and Kevin Murphy.
When I heard that Tal had completely renovated his salon to make it more mod and fabulous, I decided to pay him a visit. The decor is very sleek with black and grey furnishings and a stunning chandelier that looks like hundreds of glass bubbles or jelly fish ascending to the ceiling. Tal gave me a little makeover with a cut and some low lights, which was perfect for a low-maintenance look (meaning, I don’t need to head back to a salon to touch up my roots every two weeks). With so little time on my hands, I was grateful for his quick assessment of my hair needs. Trust me, Tal knows what will work for you!
