about the salon

Established in 1988 at the centre of fashionable Marylebone, Michael Van Clarke is London’s best luxury hair & beauty salon.

Michael continues to play a pivotal role in the salon as one of London’s leading hairdressing experts with over 30 years’ experience at the cutting edge. The salon team of 60 brings together London’s best hairdressers and beauticians.

They conduct shows and seminars around the world and look after a strong international clientele – hundreds of whom have been loyal for more than 20 years. Stylists also cut hair dry with Michael’s signature system for premium personalised hair care, the Diamond Dry Cut™.

A focus on excellence means they now hold a record number of 16 British Hairdressing Business Awards including ‘UK Salon of the Year’.

Michael also launched his own hair care brand, 3”'more inches, which was developed from a scientific understanding of hair and decades of couture hairdressing. Since launch, this range has redefined hair care in the market place.

About Michael


Michael embodies the experience, talent and impeccable care that has become synonymous with the salon.

He has worked with leading international designers for their catwalk shows and worked in photographic studios for the top magazines, getting his first Vogue editorial spread at just 19 years old. Michael’s photographic work and articles regularly appear in the key fashion magazines and national newspapers.

Michael continues to look after clients in the salon, many of which have been with him from the start. If you would like to book an appointment with him for the cut of a lifetime, please contact our Front of House team who will be able to arrange a booking for you. 


Michael’s signature Diamond Dry Cut™ is the premier method for cutting hair and is exclusive to the Michael Van Clarke salon.


The hair is cut clean and dry which allows Michael to work with the hair’s natural movement and texture, interpreted with face shapes and features, to create brilliant styles with an unrivalled level of precision and balance.

This unique method liberates the stylist to create an infinite array of personalised styles in 3D, creating something truly unique for each of our clients. This method is taught in his London Salon Academy along with an exceptional training programme which has won multiple industry awards.
