Despite seeing some bad reviews i always like to try things myself first. I had a call the day after booking to reschedule my appoinment as the appointment time i booked was not available so from the off i was feeling negative however once i arrived Jade was very welcoming took in what i wanted from my hair cut and did exactly as i asked! Very friendly and efficient so i would definitely go back! I would recommend calling them to make the appointment though as it can be frustrating not having your preferred time or day.

I can't believe how many negative reviews this place has received and especially Jade - in my opinion and experience she really deserves more praise as a hairdresser. I first tried Bellisimo in late 2014 having bought a voucher from groupon and Jade was nothing but friendly, helpful and welcoming and I was very happy with my haircut and colour. I can't really comment on the rest of the staff although the receptionist wasn't very smiley/didn't make too much effort but I didn't think she was particularly rude either. When I was leaving Jade gave me a second discount voucher, and I booked a new appointment a few months later for a trim and roots. When I got to the salon, it turned out there had been a misunderstanding when booking as they would only have enough time to trim my hair. Jade was very helpful and apologetic and booked me in again to finish my roots some days later. I was again super happy with the colour I got, I'd explained I didn't want my roots to show so noticeably very soon, which they didn't for a long time. For me this salon has been one of the best experiences professionally and I will be returning.

Jade was brilliant. She understood exactly what I wanted and she was really friendly and did a great job! I have always struggled with getting a regular hairdresser- not any more, I will definitely be going back :-)

Unfortunately I can't give a review of the haircut as I didn't receive one; after booking through Wahanda on Saturday evening, I received a call informing that the barber would not be available at the time I had booked. I wasn't able to reschedule as I need the haircut asap before going on holiday! So a little disappointed but the girl I spoke to was polite and tried her best to find a time to be able to rearrange that would suit.

Friendly staff who were very chatty and quick to offer drink / magazines. They were busy but didn't seem that they were rushing me out the door.

SOOO unhappy with the cut I got - although the lady who cut my hair was nice enough and easy to talk to I don't think she should have been let loose with the scissors - I asked for some layers in the back and it wasn't done properly, I asked for it to be blow dried straight and she spent a max of 5 minutes rough drying my hair then ran a comb through it and she was done... she purposely left all my ends sticking out so I looked like a cartoon character from the 80s! I asked her to sort this out before I left which thankfully she did.

I just took myself to Razors edge on oxford rd a couple of days after the fail rom bellisimo to get it sorted, the manager sorted it out for me in in 10 minutes and charged me just £10, I will be sticking to get my hair cut from here in future!

Will not return!!

This is my second visit to bellisimo and i must say that they way the staff conducted themselves was nothing but professional . The stylist who coloured my hair did a fantastic job and achieved results Ive never managed to get before anywhere else ! i highly recommend this salon to anyone and regret that i didn't find it sooner.
Thank you Bellisimo and hope to see you guys soon !!

Really disappointing experience. I have purposely waited a day or two to write this review and I want it to be fair, and didn't want to react in the moment.

When booking the appointment I asked for a 9.00am slot, but was told this was when they opened and was encouraged to take 9.30. I explained I had a train to London and suggested 9.15 – the person on the other end of the phone said this was fine.

So on Friday morning, before heading down to London for the weekend I headed to the appointment. Upon arrival at 9.08 I was told by Jade (the Hairdresser) and Rochelle (the receptionist), that I was too late for the appointment and she couldn't possibly cut my hair. I was a bit confused and pointed out the person on the phone had said 9.15 - they asked for the name of the person on the phone, which I didn't know as I hadn't asked at the time. As I didn't know the name they said there was nothing they could do. It's worth bearing in mind the salon was empty at this point.

Jade the hairdresser, was rude and uncompromising. I asked her if she could skip the conditioning treatment to make it quicker. She was concerned she wouldn't have enough time to cut and finish my hair as I was eight minutes late. I explained I really needed her to do my hair as I was going away for the weekend. I asked if she could cut it, then when her next appointment arrived I could dry it myself. She said she 'couldn't give me her equipment', when I pointed out there was five other hair dryers in the salon, she just said 'they aren't my hairdryers, I can't let you use them'.

When I realized there was no point as she was determined not to honor my appointment, I asked for an appointment on the following Thursday morning. Rochelle and Jade then looked at the diary and spoke amongst themselves, the jist was they deleted a personal booking in the diary for one of the hairdressers and said I could go in then. I pointed out that if the hairdresser had said she couldn't be in the morning then it was likely she wouldn't be in, and I would prefer them not to take it upon themselves to book me in an appointment when the person was clearly unavailable. Their response was 'well, she should be in for nine.'

At this point I couldn't bare anymore. I left, called groupon and got a refund and afterwards cancelled the appointment.

I received no apology from the salon. In summary, I got a very bitchy vibe from the individuals I met, they were childish and unprofessional. I won't be returning.

I can't speak highly enough of this salon. The staff are all so friendly and made me feel extremely welcome. I came away feeling like a million dollars!! I will definitely be a regular from now and I am disappointed that I've never discovered this place before.

I really loved my haircut at Bellissimo, Lovely little salon and staff really friendly especially the girl who cut my hair (sorry cant remember her name but she was wearing a black and white playsuit!) She asked me what I wanted and came up with great suggestions as to which bits would and wouldn't suit my face. Really made an effort to chat to me throughout and liked that they didnt try to sell me products. Only thing was I wasn't offered a drink which I thought was a bit odd. Will be going back again though :)

Something similar happened to me. I had bought an amazon voucher, booked an appointment, went there, was ignored for 15 minutes, only to be turned away as no stylist was available for me. They had not called to let me know that they would cancel my appointment. I wasted my time and had an unpleasant experience.
