I was working in town and needed my hair doing quickly as I was going on a works night out, so I gave Michael Paul a try. Really glad I did they did a a great job really sharp cut and just what I asked for would definitely go back. Thanks!
Oh the things we do for our friends. My adorable mate Jenny decided to go all Marilyn Monroe and booked an appointment at Michael Paul's salon but needed some moral support and requested my presence. Maybe she thought she would do a runner or she needed a heavy to make sure her bottle blond did not go green but I went willingly after she promised me a glass of wine in return.
This is a stark, white, exceptionally clean salon with young, bright and vibrant staff. Adrian worked his magic on Jenny's tresses and she was delighted with the results.As we all know, a virgin visit to an unfamiliar hairdressers can be quite daunting and you usually leave somewhat disappointed with the results, but Jen was gowned then groomed professionally and comfortably without any delay. The salon was quite full but she did not feel rushed and there were four stylists performing quietly and efficiently.
This is a spacious place, there is no possiblity of feeling cramped or able to overhear the mundane conversation from the perm next door. As it was Jen's first visit, she received 50% off her colour treatment and she left feeling and looking like a movie star. Move over Marilyn, there is a new blond in town.
Michael Paul is an average hairdressers with a top end price tag. It has quite a swish, chromey interior, with spiral srairs desending to the basement. All in all, it's a nice airy space which puts you at ease.
I've had my hair cut here twice before deciding that it was just too expensive, after all I am a boy and I do know, as my dad keeps telling me, that I can get my hair cut for 8 quid at his barbers, instead of paying £25 upwards here. Saying that, my friend had her hair dyed here and could not stop raving about the gorgeous brown bonce she ended up with thanks to Claire. Which, did actually look pretty hot and above all natural.
So perhaps if your a girl reading this, and willing to fork out the cash, it may be worth a visit as I don't actully have anything bad to say about here apart from I can't afford it!
Michael Paul hairdressers is a small but perfectly formed salon on Bridge street, just off Deansgate.
Some of the stylists are talented (see Daniel!) but it is not cheap; £50 which is probably in line with current costs but my stylist is amazing and he charges less so....
Michael Paul's provides a good sharp cut, that stays in line with trends, and there isn't any product hard sell in the end. The cuts remain inoffensive though and if you get a good enough cut from here.
I took my niece in for a cut (aged 10) and they charged a shocking £25 for a dry trim - I wasn't happy with that at all!
All in all, this is a plush salon and you get discount cards sent to you once you become a customer.
Where would we be without Adrian @ Michael Paul? This guy can practically knock up a decent style with his eyes shut. Prices typical of Central Manchester, but you can easily spend more and receive less elsewhere.
