This cute hairdressers on snowfields street (a gem of a street nestled behind London Bridge station) is staffed by Vidal Sassoon trained hairdressers and colourists. The service is efficient and friendly plus the cuts are fantastic. You don't get your normal hairdresser banter here as they are Japanese I actually think this is a selling point ! The stylists will give you a cut that suits you and your hair type and if they think what you want wont work they are not afraid to tell you. This is probably one of the best hairdressers in London and the prices are very reasonable.
I had my hair cut here on a Friday night and was super impressed with the relaxing hair massage prior to my haircut. My stylist listened to what i was looking for, and had suggestions to ensure it would go well with my hair. I will def be trying them out for other treatments!
This is a low-key, family-run salon that has just the right balance of pampering and efficiency. I'm not the type who enjoys spending my entire Saturday afternoon at the salon, so I appreciate that I can get in and out in an hour with a great new cut. Having said that, they will offer tea and give a fantastic scalp massage, so it still feels like a treat. I've been to Malishi twice, for a haircut from Takashi. He is terrific at managing to give me exactly what I ask for, while making good suggestions about what he thinks is appropriate for my hair type. He is interested in working with you and does not try to upsell on other services or treatments. I have loved both the cuts I got from him. The staff are friendly (no snob factor) but not overly chatty, which is another thing I appreciate, since sometimes I just want to close my eyes and enjoy the relaxing feeling of having someone work with my hair without feeling like I have to hold up a constant conversation.
The prices are very affordable, with a basic cut at £35. They never push any products, and if you ask, they are just as quick to suggest a product that don't carry as one that they do. They carry both Modern Organic Products and Kevin Murphy, both of which I love. These people are great, and seem genuinely interested in good customer service, no attitude. Even though I moved away from the neighbourhood and now live across the city, I plan to keep going to Malishi.
