REVIEW | Girls Afternoon Glamour at Charles Worthington, West London
By Annette Kellow
The saying goes ‘Life isn’t perfect, but your hair can be,’ and being a busy mother with a million and one things to do, sometimes my hair takes a back seat in the style stakes!
Combine this with the change of seasons, over styling, and my hair has been what can only be described as lacklustre lately.
So when I was invited to Charles Worthington to experience Girls Afternoon Glamour, I literally jumped at the chance!
Girls Afternoon Glamour is an experience unique to Charles Worthington, who is one of the most prestigious and renowned hairdressing names in the U.K.
Charles has won many of the industry’s most prestigious accolades, developed an award-winning portfolio of products sold worldwide, styled A-list celebrities, and collaborated with some of the best names in the fashion and beauty industry. All this whilst seamlessly remaining a family business.
Located on Great Queen Street in the heart of Covent Garden, the salon is set in a Georgian townhouse over five floors.
On entering it has a quintessentially elegant English feel about it and I am seated by a friendly receptionist in the drawing room – the hang out area for clients to relax before and after treatments.
I’m there for my go-to favourite- a classic blow dry- but this one is with a twist!
Charles Worthington have teamed with Brigits Bakery for a sumptuous afternoon tea and blow dry experience- otherwise known as Girls Afternoon Glamour.
B Bakery as it’s known (which is handily also based in Covent Garden) is a relaxing sanctuary of afternoon tea, cakes and sandwiches. They are also the inventors of the iconic London Tea Bus Tour, which captures the heart of city culture, and serves a sumptious afternoon tea on a double decker bus.
Today they have a huge platter of traditional delicacies on offer including cucumber sandwiches, ham and cheese rolls and smoked salmon pretzels. Their sweet treats include lemon meringue tart, vanilla jam choux and chocolate cake. Of course I had to try them all!
After tucking in to a couple of sandwiches, and sipping on a glass of their finest fizz, I had a hair consultation to discuss how I like my hair styled (volume with a little curl please).
I was then taken through to have it throuoghly washed, topped with the most dreamiest head massage ever (which to be honest relaxed me to the point of almost falling asleep!) And then the magic began.
My hairdresser was efficient in style but paid attention to detail, and within 45 minutes my hair had less frizz and lots of bounce. All this with an abundance of delicious edibles, which of course, always enhances an experience!
I want away feeling calm, confident- and a little bit spoilt too.
Girls Afternoon Glamour is perfect for ladies who lunch, birthdays, work events, or simply for someone who likes to indulge in some pampering. Afternoon tea and hairdressing? What a wonderful combination.

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
GREAT GIFT IDEAS FOR HIM | He’ll love this immersive Crime Scene Investigation Experience in Yorkshire
Anyone who fancies themselves a bit of a sleuth. If you’re an armchair detective and work out “whodunnit” before Poirot even twiddled his moustache or love watching real crime documentaries then this CSI Experience in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire is for you. Vouchers don’t have to be bought in pairs but I would say that to get the most out of the experience you’d be best off going with likeminded, crime-fighting friend.
If you love food and don’t know Sheffield very well then the Kelham Island Food Tour could be the one for you. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, filled with many tasty delights whilst discovering new places around the much loved industrial part of town. The first time I ventured away from my city-centre haunts was shortly after finishing uni, when we discovered the Fat Cat pub and (more importantly) £2 pints of ale. It dumbfounded us that we’d never even heard of this part of town, so finding such an amazing place to drink after four years living in Sheffield was quite a late discovery!
I am a pub girl through and through and a glutton for a good, hearty menu. Forever hunting out new locations to catch up with my friends or to go for lunch with the family, so was super excited to discover this little gem situated in the beautiful Sutton.
