Nice service but a bit too expensive for a simple haircut.

I had a delightful Scottish lady called Alana who was very chatty and who did a great job on my hair. I had plaudits on my hair from colleagues back at my workplace. 5 stars

The overall experience was good, the place is really nice and clean. Only consideration: the esthetician should check if all hair was removed in intimate parts.

I love the way they colour my hair but I then asked for a trim and they charged me £50 for this. A trim?! I won't be going back.

Apologies you found this trim too expensive. Unfortunately that is the price of the Senior stylist you were booked in with. A trim is the same process as any other cut and requires the same level of expertise and time. Apologies again and we do hope to see you in future for your colour services.

Loved my haircut. The hairdresser was really friendly and did a good job tidying up my scraggly ends. He also cut my hair completely straight, which I love and which I find not all hairdressers do. Top marks!

The best haircut I've had in London! After a bad haircut at a previous salon, I chose to come to MacCarthy because of all the great reviews - they didn't disappoint! My hair is exactly the way I wanted and the staff were so friendly! I will definitely be back.

Positives: Massive variety of colours. Good manicure. Very nice lady. Nice environment.

Negative: Normally my shellac doesn't chip until after 2 weeks but 3 days later one of the edges of my shellac chipped without me having done anything to provoke it. This is the second time I've had my nails done here. It happened the first time as well but didn't comment on it in case it was a one-off. Not sure why it's happening. I have no expertise in applying shellac but one difference I noticed here in comparison to other shellac treatment places is that the length of time under the UV lamp is less. Another difference is the brand of base coat and top coat. Although I always get CND shellac, other salons don't necessarily use the CND base coat and top coat. Perhaps other base coat and top coat brands are better so my suggestions is for MacCarthy's to look into this

Sincere apologies you have experienced this on 2 occasions. We use the CND top and base coat and the Duraforce top coat which should be stronger. We have the new LED UV CND lamp also which means the cure time is alot quicker then most other lamps.

Please do come back so we can correct any chips and if needed we will redo the entire manicure. Sincere apologies again and we hope to see you again soon.

Thank you for your feedback :-)
