Eurostar, the high-speed rail service linking the UK and mainland Europe, is cutting the ribbon to unveil a pop-up express hair salon in its London St Pancras departure lounge.
Chop-Chop, the ultimate salon experience for those on the go, will be taking up residence in the London lounge.
Designed to offer travellers a quick, convenient and first-class cut and style, it offers chic holidaymakers and time-pressed business passengers luxury on-the-go hair styling before travelling to the Continent.
Open to all passengers, clients can choose from a menu of over 20 styles including quick trims, layered cuts, dry styles and braiding, all designed by celebrity stylist Sherman Hawthorne to transform hair in just 20 minutes. For only £20, Eurostar customers can refresh their look whilst relaxing in a private pod before travel.
Roberto Abbondio, Eurostar Managing Director of New Digital Business said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Chop-Chop hair salon to our London departure lounge to offer travellers more than just the journey. The swift style and cut enables our travellers to leave their London look behind, and board the train feeling refreshed, before they’ve even started their holiday or their journey back home.”
Chop-Chop CEO and Co-Founder Kaye Sotomi said:
“We are very excited about this partnership and the opportunity to bring our unique service to the Eurostar customer. We will be offering a menu of 24 styles, delivered in 20 minutes at a single price point of £20 regardless of gender or hair type. Eurostar is known for offering a superior customer experience, and we are proud to be associated with such values.”
