I booked in for a haircut with the Director.

The cut was done by Daniel. He was good at talking me through how he was going to cut my hair and how his way of doing it would benefit me as I am attempting to grow my hair and wanted to keep as much length as possible, He also recommended a finish, which in the end suited me very well and I was happy with.
Daniel also took time to consult me about the colour from a previous balayage and ways in which I can refresh it to take it into new season after the cut was done.

The salon is a small , bright space. There is no music playing. I was offered a coffee half way through my hour appointment, I feel the reception staff could have been a little more attentive greeting a client for the first time.

Overall however I am pleased with the end result and would recommend Daniel to others.

I have had my hair cut by Sam a few times now and have always been delighted with the results. I would highly recommend this Salon.

Staff was really friendly and also helpful, giving his opinion on what I should have done but ultimately leaving the choice up to me.

Having made my Appointment on the day with SAM I was told when I got there SAM is on Holiday which was not true.SAM was waiting for me but some one switched my name to DANIEL which made SAM very annoyed & she
walked out.Although my Hair cut was good I thought this was not a nice thing to do to your Staff.
Also as I entered the Shop there was an Atmosphere & no one greeted me.I had to wait till DANIEL finished his
Customer, which was about 20 minutes.

Not a very nice experience overall - I was only there for 30 minutes in total. The hairdresser left me hovering at the door for a while when I arrived and didn't speak to me much. I didn't feel very welcome! Also didn't feel that she understood what I wanted done. Hair cut is ok - I think it is a bit uneven. I have been once before and had a different hairdresser and had a much better experience - maybe I caught them on a bad day!

Fabulous service in a very relaxing environment. I left with shiny, healthy, glossey hair and felt completely renewed.

Got my Keratin treatment. The new hair one.
Just washed my after after 3 days and they are very smooth and straights.
The hairdresser was very professional , a bit rough I would say. He could have been a bit more delicate with my hairs but that is fine. Iam happy with the result.

The salon, having recently been refurbished, looked light, bright and airy. Irina washed and blow dried my hair and did a great job, quick and professional, very good value for money.

Just to be clear, I have fine, straight hair that is difficult to cut because every little mistake shows. Most stylists cannot cut my hair correctly. Anthony may be a great stylist with other types of hair.

Here it is...
Pros: This place has all the right things to be a fantastic hair salon. The staff were really nice, warm, friendly and talkative. I was attended to immediately and shampooed by the person at reception. They brought me tea and were always smiling.

Cons: My Appointment was rescheduled 15 mins later and since I scheduled on the same day, I was not made aware of this even when checking in at my original time. Consequentially, I sat with wet hair after being shampooed for 15-20 mins while Anthony finished slowly with her hair but mostly telling a story to one if his regulars. I let things slide and pass it off as being attentive. The receptionist didn't think to offer a tea while I was waiting there, only 45 mins after I arrived.
Anthony did not look at my hair before it was shampooed to know what my hair is like, as my previous stylists have done. Once I'm in Anthony's chair, I show him pictures of what I would like. These ideas were a complete change from what I went in with, but I know my hair can do the short style I wanted because I've done it before. I specifically said that my fine, straight hair would need some texture on the sides so it doesn't fall flat everyday. I said it in many ways... Could we make it less heavy here? Sure! Make sure it can have body please? Of course! Can we give it some texture so it doesn't fall flat? Yes, I know what you mean!
But it was not done. In fact, after 1hour30mins of lots of chatting (which was nice, but at times I felt obligated to), I realised that for my cut he's not going to dry it and go over it dry to give it texture and see how it lays dry, which every seasoned stylist will do with a short ladies cut. He just kept spraying it to keep it wet and try to get the blunt ends perfect (neither I nor the pictures said anything about a blunt cut).
When I realised he had a different vision than myself and went with that vision I knew that he was not skilled enough to be confident in giving me what I asked for. He did the best he could with his skills. That's why he gets 3 stars, because at the end of the day the cut is not bad... I was just hoping for fabulous. I'm still looking for my stylist in London.
