This is my regular hair salon. It's bright and friendly. Muswell Hill has more hair salons per capita, than anywhere else in London I'm sure, so competition is fierce. Barrons has been here for a long time - so it's formula must be working. Staff are good at what they do - you're guaranteed of a good cut, colour, blowdry. They also have a portrait photography studio downstairs. Barrons are also very particular about the products they use : Phyto, Nioxin and Aveda and they avoid the scary chemical stuff. I've tried a few of the other salons in MH, and would rate Barrons as one of the top salons in the area.
I have had a poor experience at this salon. The Staff are friendly but I did not like the haircut I received. It was not what I asked for. I ended up paying for another place in crouch end to fix it total cost £130 for a cut. Go elsewhere.
Had a terrible experience at Barrons. I booked a senior stylist and half way through the cut she (Juliana) admitted she was still at college and asked if she could take a before and after shot as she was learning to cut long hair short and needed to show her teacher! I said I did not want my hair short. She said it would be fine. Well she kept cutting it shorter and shorter and I kept asking her to stop but she insisted it would be fine. She said my hair was boring and she was fixing it. I ended up with hideous hair which was very very short at the back and sides and just a huge flop mess at the front. She said I could fix it up properly at home! She actually said that. THe hair washer who was a very nice guy came over and actually laughed at my hair. I agreed that it was disgraceful. I said I was not happy with it and she shrugged her shoulders. I rang the owner the next day who was completely uninterested. Too busy to talk. Said to come back next time I wanted a haircut. What? Absolutely bizarre. Bad haircut. Owner who doesn't give a damn. Avoid this place like the plague.
