So I walked in here on the off chance that they'd have a free slot to cut my hair, and they did! I had time to wait around for while the other appointment took place and there are lots of things to look at to keep you entertained.
Everyone was really friendly and friends kept dropping in to say hello which made a really nice atmosphere!
When it came time for my hair cut, I wasn't nervous because Magda had done a very nice job on the lady before me.
I was offered my sip of vodka and away she went... as did my hair... a lot of it!
The style I was going for didn't really look that great when it got to it so Magda sort of.. kept going until it looked cool enough!
We might have both been slightly shocked by the result but I'm sure it'll grow on me.....!!!
This was definitely the best experience I've had at a salon and I will certainly go back there for my next cut...........whenever my hair grows back!
This shop shouts quirky even just from its name. Suprisingly (not) the concept of a vodka shot and a haircut has made this place quite popular with the student crowd, let alone its close proximity to the Central Campus. It's also located within the same building that houses Forest Cafe, which seems to be the centre for everything quirky in that area.
Moreover, this place is affordable and the haircuts are good.Granted my friend didn/t get anything drastic done, but girls who work there are so friendly and her haircut turned out great!
I know Magda through friends and have pretty much witnessed Snip & Sip's inception and growth in the Forest (cafe). Just in the last year it's gone from makeshift to very well established.
Magda shares the space with Alex, who runs the Massage Corner, and who recently served my back with one helluvan intense upper body massage. Just the atmosphere of the place is really exquisite. This being mainly because both Alex and Magda always genuinely look like they're having a great time. And nothing makes me want to go to a place more than seeing people having fun while they're working.
Snip & Sip is exactly what it sounds like: You have a sip (of vodka) and get (your fair) snipped. And Magda is good. She knows how to keep you calm (yes, I get stressed out in haircuts because I've had many a terrible one) and make you laugh without stabbing you with the scissors. And she definitely knows how to make you look cool.
When I was in San Francisco last summer, I went to the place she opened her first Snip & Sip and people there remembered her really fondly.
For a mere tenner you can get a haircut and a shot to calm your nerves. What're you waiting for?
i was in desperate need of a trim for my bangs (aka my fringe for those of you who reside in the u.k.) and saw the adorable snip & sip sign on the sidewalk offering me a free shot of vodka with my haircut. How's a girl to resist an offer like that? I popped in and the adorable hairdresser was working on another girl, but since I wasn't able to come back later (tickets to a show), she paused (with other girls amused permission) and cut my bangs while i stood. Charged me virtually nothing, too. Shot of vodka - an added bonus to a cute haircut from a friendly lady!
As a guy I've had my haircut for £5 and I've shelled out as much as £31 in a salon and my haircut in here was better than both salons and barbers. As someone who isn't very good at the dreaded 'small talk', I found these guys funny and easy to talk to. The salon itself is unique and quirky with the price well worth it for a guy(£15).
