Ruth was the name of the girl who cut my hair, she was lovely, cut my hair exactly as I wanted and the price was very reasonable especially by London standards. All the staff were lovely. Finally found my new hairdresser in London

I first had my hair cut by Josie about a year ago when I had a Wahanda deal for cut and highlights and she did a great job. After that I went to different people chasing Wahanda deals and they varied from OK to not OK(!) so I thought I better go back to Josie and accept that you get what you pay for. She did a great job again and I also got a free take-home dye kit which is the same colour that they use in the salon.

I haven't used the take home colour kit yet but the process to get it was really great and i'm sure it will work out. The cut is amazing! Really pleased with it and will be back :) :)

Having somehow managed to avoid getting my hair cut in a salon for pretty much my whole life, it took a bit of courage to come into a central London salon. But I was far from disappointed, and came back for a second hair cut! Ruth is one of those rare hair dressers who doesn't just cut a style because it's on trend, but really listens to what you want, and talks through ideas to ensure she cuts a style that leaves you feeling awesome. It's a break-through to have found a hairdresser and salon that keep me coming back for a hair cut every 6-8weeks. And I will be back!

Had a men's cut and style with Ruth. She talked me through styles that would suit and then did a great job. Really happy with the style and have had numerous comments on my hair since, will definitely be going back!

The staff are super friendly, the ambiance comfortable and inviting and the beer is great too. I would highly recommend a visit.

I really enjoyed my appointment with Josie. I went for half head of highlights and am very happy with the results! I also really liked the head massage. Would definitely recommend this salon!

Great venue, really liked Josie, she seemed a little stressed/hurried though, all the staff seemed friendly, good location, wash with massage was great, have had better deals/better attention/quality of haircuts and blowdrys though. Happy though, a bit shorter than I asked

Really happy with my new hairdo. I went for balayage (half head of highlights) with Emma who was great. Will be back soon!

Absolutely brilliant place! First time here after so many recommendations from friends (all with great hair) and really can't complain. Went on a Saturday afternoon to see Jodie and although I had no idea what I wanted doing to my hair, she talked through what she thought would work and we agreed on a mid-length cut to suit my face shape. Really happy with it and loved the hour there nattering away. Next time I'm saying 'yes' to wine and staying there all afternoon!

It turns out that the hair washing station to the left as you look at them is much more comfortable than the one on the right. So now there is no reason to go anywhere else :)

Staff and ambiance are great, so was the beer they offered me.

Really handy salon near my work, and friendly and good service. Was not as happy with blow dry as I usually have from other places, as the curls seem to not stay in for very long. But still is good.

Lovely salon, nicely decorated, relaxing atmosphere and the staff were friendly. My blow dry was good I wanted it big and bouncy and my hair looked great afterwards. I will be back!

Emma has been doing my hair for a few years now and I absolutely love her! I have never had such a great cut ever before, she's like a mind-reader! I always walk out absolutely loving my cut and/or colour and get loads of compliments on it - and it's always so easy to maintain. Plus it's such a nice atmosphere, a great chat and a nice glass of wine or cup of tea. Bliss!

This was my first visit to Bar, after a friend recommended I try it, and I'm so happy I did. I had my hair cut by Josie (also recommended by my friend) and went a lot shorter than I've been in years. Josie really listened to what I wanted and I'm so happy with the results. My hair feels transformed!

The salon is easy to find, close to Farringdon and Barbican stations. Unassuming exterior and comfortable inside; not too flashy or too decadent, with good lighting and a sofa to wait on if (as I did) you arrive a little ahead of time. I didn't catch her name but the woman on Reception was extremely friendly and warm, and immediately took my coat and scarf. Brent, the owner, was assigned to me for my wash, cut and blow dry appointment, and despite my being flustered was quick to put me at ease, sitting with me for a quick chat about what I wanted (I'd come in with a few ideas but no strict plan and no photos), and what he thought might work with my face shape and my ideas for my hair. My hair was 80% rough-dried first before the cut began. I had asked after the chat for a long bob and Brent was quick to point out a length that worked for my face, with slightly longer front ends and some long layers for more shape and movement. A complimentary head massage was a lovely extra. Brent was chatty but not invasively so throughout, upbeat and professional (it helps that he's incredibly sparkly and charming) and made it clear that at any time I should let him know if something felt like it needed altering, or wasn't working for me. The cut came out lovely, with a side fringe added in at the end to frame the look, and Brent blow-dried my hair to finish, using straighteners to kink my (straight) hair to give it a more rough-and-tumble look, which really brought out the layering. A day later and it looks great. Fingers crossed I can keep the look going once I've washed and dried it myself!

Very handy near my work to pop in. Friendly staff, was offered a glass of wine as it was a Friday evening and Lucy (i think) who did my hair was lovely. Not sure curls lasted as long as they sometimes do but still happy.
