Had a cut and partial highlights. The stylist was very patient and willing to please. She used 3 different colors for the highlighting. They want to make you happy and it shows. I am very pleased with my cut and highlights. I only wish they had pictures of hair colors so I could of shown her want I wanted, but Nuala knew exactly what kind of look I was aiming for. I would recommend this salon.
When I made the appointment, I almost canceled it because of the reviews I found online but a.) I was desperate and b.) I figured it was the hair dresser not the salon that makes or breaks the experience. So I gave Headmasters Paddington a chance.
I had Alex who on all levels was wonderfully pleasant, professional and listened to what I asked for. She chopped about 5 inches off and gave me a half a head of highlights. The cut was fine, great actually and the colour of the blonde that I wanted was spot on. However... I walked out of the salon, went home and checked out my hair from all angels and discovered that I still had 1 inch roots.
The whole point of my regular salon visits is to cover up my roots... so when that doesn't happen (yet I paid for it to happen).. it's really disappointing.
Because of this... I won't be returning to Headmasters.
So I'm back to the drawing board in finding a London hair stylist. :(
