It is located just end of Witihngton Village.
I went there with viewing the qype site and I must say I am pleased with my result.
I did 'wash and cut' and it costs 16 pounds which is really good value for money. The hairdresser knows what I want to do and he really did very well. I am often fed up with too expensive price with hair salon so I am very pleased with the cost performance and needless to say the cut! They open till 8 pm so you can go after work too.
I had my hair cut at Funk last week, It is a relatively small salon with only 4 seats for customers, but I personally like the homely comfort this brings, unlike some of the pretentious city centre hair dressers. The staff were nice and friendly too. I was seen promptly at my appointment time, after enjoying a well made coffee.
My stylist understood exactly what I wanted and interpreted my request fairly skillfully. I only paid £25 too!!
They are open till 8pm everyday so its handy to pop in after work, there is a small car parking area to the rear if you are driving.
Situated slap bang in the middle of Withington Village, Funk is a cute little hair and beauty salon which appears to cater mainly towards the huge student population living in the area.
Like many of the other commenters here, I went to Funk based on the strength of the many positive reviews here on Qype. And I have to say that I was really satisfied with my experience there - the staff were attentive and chatty throughout my time there, and were very becoming with the compliments (I'm always a sucker for a person who tells me I look significantly younger than my actual age!). Also, the cut looked stunning. I left the salon feeling like a new woman - not bad considering it only cost me £25.
A few points though - I did have to wait for 20 minutes before I was seen to by the stylist. Granted, I wasn't in a rush to be anywhere, and I was provided with coffee, biscuits and magazines, but this is probably something to take into consideration if you're thinking of going there. Also, they don't take cards - and having to run to one of the cash machines on Wilbraham Road in the pouring rain is a sure fire way to wreck your new hairdo!
However, these are just minor gripes about what is essentially a cracking little salon. I know I'll certainly be giving the bargain-tastic Funk my custom next time my mop needs a trim.
I went to Funk on the strength of the above review by vickyp and was very pleased with my choice. I HATE going to the hairdressers usually so I'm generally pretty cautious about where I go. However I found that Funk had a relaxed, friendly, atmosphere and although modern wasn't too trendy like some of the salons I've visited in the city centre.
Unlike vickyp, I didn't have any issues with my appointment time and there was only a short wait, during which time I was offered a drink and given a magazine to keep me occupied. I did go on a Tuesday morning though, so I guess that has something to do with it.
The staff were very attentive and I got exactly the style I'd asked for - practically a replica of a cut I had last year that cost me £50 at a salon in town. At £22 for the cut and blow dry at Funk, I think I got a bargain. There's no doubt I'll be back there next time I need a haircut.
I seem to constantly be on the hunt for a good hairdresser and may have found the light at the end of the tunnel in Funk. Its quite a small hairdressers, just off Withington village, but I've been really happy with the cut I received there. Coming in under £20 is a must for these credit crunching times so I'm really happy with the value for money you get at Funk.
It is a relatively small hairdressers with only 3 or 4 chairs, but I enjoy the personal feel you get as opposed to the larger salons where you float around in a sea of about 20 other clients.
The sylist here did my hair and i honestly felt like a new wonam! They did such a good job and really explained to me how i could maintain the style easy, and the best products on the high st for my hair type. Very impressed!
