{London-style files take II}

Yesterday I blogged about how I was going to get my hair cut at Tony&Guy Academy--you can read that blog here. Well, I did it & while I was in the midst of it I was a little scared--the 'student' cutting my hair didn't speak a lick of English & required a translator...but the result was fantabulous.
I got back my fringe, and they styled my hair in a messy-tousled-look with their newest product--some kind of glue that when worked through in with fingers, it gives the desired effect.

I took a walk post-hair cut down Piccadilly and then on to Bond St. My favourites on Piccadilly are Fortnum & Mason, Burlington Arcade, and the lovely old bookshoppe, Hatchards (oldest bookshop in London).
Here are some shots of beautiful storefronts, delicacies & gorgeous things for sale.
