The salon was "no frills" but the haircut was good. Claudia was very nice.
I’m pleased with my haircut- it’s what I asked for -and the price was really low. The salon doesn’t look great, which made me feel a little nervous about how good the cut would be but it all turned out fine.
Appalling experience!!! Most unprofessional and poorly executed hair cut by the senior stylist on the day. She was exceedingly heavy handed with her comb on my scalp, too, and to top it off, very rude! This feels not like a hair salon, but rather a makeshift premise to shuffle customers through, regardless of the quality of services provided. On the day, the client was x4 overbooked at my time slot. Though I was first to arrive, I was made to wait an extremely long time! No one was offered a drink, nor the usual hair salon etiquette followed. I was not the only customer on the day left dissatisfied. When I brought to the attention of the senior stylist, that my hair was unhappily longer on one side, compared to the other — she whipped the gown off of me and barked that it was “perfect”. An immensely unwelcome experience. Do not waste your time, nor money. Don’t put your hair, or scalp in jeopardy!
Nice salon and convenient. Hair cut was good
They forgot I had an appt - had to wait 30 mins, this happened with all of the customers.
Didn't offer me any water
Whilst I was there 2 clients were not happy with their haircuts and they refused to alter them
Run down interiors
I had to ask the hairdresser to use a heat protection spray and go ishing oil as this was not her actual job, so she didn't know what products to use
had to wait even when ive set an appointment and the lady who did my hair was so rough and was rushing to finish because she has few other customers waiting
It smelled horribly in there, it took me two days and 2 showers to get the stink off of me.
Plus I felt like the hairdresser was barely listening to what I was saying while I was explaining what I wanted. I came on time, but had to wait 40 minutes, she banged my head several times with the hair drier, and I ended up stopping her before the end as by then I had no trust in her to not ruin my hair, especially since she has a similar hair type to mine, but hers did not look good at all. Not meaning to get personal, but you start to worry if your hairdresser's hair looks a mess.
They seemed nice enough, but overall an VERY unpleasant experience, AVOID.
Long wait and overcharged
I loved the blow dry that the hairdresser did for you in less than hour.
Worst ever hair cut and colour, do not waste your time or money. She cannot understand what you want and she Is very scissors happy
