I had phoned before attending to confirm the product was formaldehyde free...paid, turned up and was told I would have to pay £61 more to have this (on top of the £89)! Then the hairdresser started arguing with me, refused to do the treatment and then eventually agreed as I had paid! The treatment left my hair still a little frizzy-I did point this out to the stylist but he just said my hair was still a little wet. I've now washed it myself and it's still frizzy. Nowhere near as good as my previous treatment-don't waste your money on this place!

We are happy to received any comment as we would like to hear different points from people, so we can improve our service.

As our hairstylists have been doing this treatment for a long time, we would not sent out any wrong information to any of our clients by phone or email. We also would not do the treatment if the client are not suitable or not sure about it and we are happy to get them refund if necessary.

However we have noticed you have done the same treatment with us through Wahanda before. This is your SECOND time visit, as you know the offer for this treatment is restrictedly for 1st time visit only, but you have used different user name to book an appointment, as you required we still did the same treatment for you. We have been using the same product for a few years, we could not understand why would you do this if you think it is wasting your money.

The most people understood that we can not match the price for different treatments. And people would not take advantage on us!

Kind regards
The Purple Salon

I had a great haircut here. The lady cutting my hair really listened to what I wanted and checked with me at every stage to ensure I was happy.

Really impressed with this salon, they were really friendly and welcoming the minute I arrived. Mei was fantastic, taking time to discuss what best suited my hair, and giving really helpful tips. My finished hair looked amazing. Couldn't be any happier.

Great haircut, love the new style- I just let them do what they thought would suit me and they did a fantastic job. And a wonderful blow dry to follow. Would recommend and I will be returning.

I am overall satisfied with the treatment, though it is not the best one I have had so far. It was my first time in this salon so the price was reduced, but I would not go back for the full price. The stylist was very nice and welcoming. The treatment is not supposed to be washed away after application, unlike other treatments I have had so far, and therefore my hair felt kind of greasy - which is not too pleasant when you get out a hair salon.

Really sweet studio and lovely staff.
I had the formaldehyde-free treatment (costs extra), it's not as long lasting as the other version but I am happy with it.
I would recommend this salon.

I'm very happy with my Brazilian blow dry. The salon isn't as nice as others I have been to in London, but the service was great and the treatment was done well. Karl did a wonderful job explaining the Brazilian blow dry process and carrying it out. My hair looks great and I'll definitely return to The Purple Salon if I get another Brazilian blow dry in the future.

Extremely friendly and knowledgeable staff, quick and effective service. Almost a week on and I'm really pleased with the results. Great value compared to other salons. Would recommend buying sulphate free shampoo/conditioner before your visit as this is recommended in the salon and their prices are pretty high (£30-£40) although this isn't a complaint about the salon - the hairdresser didn't force me into buying it at all. Really pleased and will probably return.
