1- spacious and trendy interior
2- good quality products (shampoos and hair colours)
2- staff who are mainly expats don't seem very experienced when it comes to hair colour in case you need to change your hair colour this is definitely not the place to go to
But if you prefer to go for similar look, colour over and over again then you are safe there because they don't take risks and they don't have creativity
Will still go to there because I am after hair colours that are primarily natural
Wow-what a wonderful treat! I found this place on yelp when I searched facial as my skin was becoming red and blotchy and dry in the London cold!! I am so happy that I did. Gosia gave me a fabulous facial and eyebrow wax-she really seemed to understand my skin and while the mask was soaking in, she didn't leave the room...she actually gave me the choice of a foot, hand or scalp massage. What a tough choice!! Hands please.
She also gave me an eyebrow wax-and was a perfectionist with the tweezers.She took her time as though she was an artist. Now for the 5 stars...I went to check out and the manager asked how I was on time. As my children both had after school activities, I was fine on time:). He asked if I would like a complimentary blow dry to get me ready for the weekend. Why yes, I would LOVE that. I was shown to a chair and asked if I would like anything to drink and a complimentary neck massage. Has anyone ever said no to a complimentary neck massage?? Pure heaven...the hair washing chairs, the products and the people working in this wonderful place made me feel like queen for the day--a VIP at the very least. You have a new customer!!
Great haircut from Jesse and great place for a bikini wax- a little pricey, but definitely worth it!!!
This hairdresser was a huge disappointment! First I had Gary to cut my hair. Although I had explained in great length what I wanted he did not cut it well and I had to go for a re-do, which is such a waste of time. I had my hair done in the past for several years by and fantastic hairdresser who moved to the US and Gary truly is far away from my previous hairdresser's league. Gary's skills are less than mediocre. My colour (semi-permanent) also done by Gary was ok. However, when I had it done again by one of the stylists, who apparently has had hairdressing experience for over 8 years, it was a disaster lots of grey hair underneath not covered, colour on the hair around the face not applied properly I had to constantly remind him not to smear colour on my ear/face/neck. When I asked for a re-do, John at reception gave me an appointment, only to phone me a few days later to tell me, Gary will not do the colour and I am very demanding! Well, get the job done properly, then there is no need to be demanding! AVOID this hairdresser at all cost!
