In these days of male grooming and the application of face creams and gels, massages and nose trimming, it was only a matter of time before I plucked up the courage and booked myself in for an mot and service at Genco's.
Located in the up and coming street that is Devonshire road, I timidly walked down the street on a Saturday morning thinking about what they were going to do to me and wondering if they had enough strimmer wire left.
As I walked in it looked like a trendy enough sort of a place and I was ushered over to the leather chairs to have a seat and wait for my executioner. There was a longish wait which I filled with today's newspaper and a coffee - which was good news for the hangover.
So onto the business end - haircuts, styling, scalp massage, condition and colouring, get a standard shave or go for the full monty (exfoliate,deep cleanse and moisturise). In the "treatment room" they offer all sorts of massage, eyebrow reshaping and a whole lot of other things that men should be doing to themselves.
As for me - I had the scalp massage, condition and haircut - yes I bottled out, I think I will leave to those that are into that sort of thing and admit I am a coward.
I have had a few bad haircuts in London so, when a friend who lives in Chiswick
Recomended that I go to Genco and get my haircut by Sean I took his advice

My booking and Sean was not available,I was asked to wait and was then seated
By a girl whose name I have forgotten who cut my hair,I got a very bad haircut,a number
Of people over the weekend have commented on it,I did not complain at the time
As I felt that there was little point,but I will not. Be returning
I was expecting so much from my first hair cut, esp having read the many positive reviews and the salon's website, only to be somewhat disappointed! The stylist was 'ok' and there was no consultation as to what look was appropriate although I must add that the environment and ambiance of the place was superb. Overall a very relaxing environment and good customer service but not the perfect haircut for the price I paid!
