I had the first appointment of the day so had to wait outside for about 10 minutes.

Apart from that, treatment was good value for money and a good experience.

Loved the spacious rooms downstairs but did not enjoy the fact that the therapist did not even ask me whether I had sensitive skin and, therefore, did not use the right type of waxing for my skin. The waxing was ok in the end but could have been done better. Great offer though, as I booked in the morning for later the same day.

This was the first time I had gel pedicure and I must say I am delighted with the results. Needless to say that I will be returning again. Thank you Brasil Hair Islington

I had a treatment wash and blowdry package. Firstly, they didn't leave the treatment on for long so (if this was a treatment or perhaps just conditioner), it only stayed on my hair for 30 seconds at most.

I was really unhappy with my haircut, which I haven't felt since I was a kid! I told my hairdresser I wanted only a trim. She showed me the length she intended to cut, which was well over an inch. I said less to her, twice, showing her exactly how little off I wanted! I know it probably needed a good amount off, however I only wanted a half inch or less.

She asked me if I wanted layering and I said a little bit, but again wanted to keep my length. She ended up chopping quite a substantial amount off - at some points, at least 1.5 inches bringing it from my shoulders to above my chin line!! I know have a really choppy, 3 levels of layered 90's style haircut. I'm pretty peeved!!

The salon itself was really nice and other customers seemed pretty happy with their experience so it's a real shame I had this bad experience.

Dear Julia
We really appreciate your review and we are always appreciate to receive feedback from our clients, so we are able to improve our service. With regards your hair cut I am sorry she could not match exactly the picture you showed. We know sometimes a hair cut and style will depend of hair texture and length.
We always try our best to advice in what realistic can be achieved and if they agree we will go ahead, on this occasion we have not satisfied your expectation, please accept our apologies.
I can offer you a free hair treatment and blow dry. Also we would like to offer a different hair stylist in case you wish to modify the cut.
Best Regards,
Brasil Hair Management

Great experience getting my hair washed, cut and treated here. If you're just having hair treatments here, I would definitely recommend this place. However, when I got my wax, when I entered the room, it hadn't been cleaned since the previous customer (used paper still on the chair, trash on the counter) also, when I was getting waxed, I noticed the the technician wasn't changing the wooden tong after every use...this is standard practice for cleanliness. Also, the one room I had booked for my pedicure was taken so they set me up in a chair in their window and had me put my feet in a portable wash basin and then onto the lap of the pedicurist. It was awkward and uncomfortable. That being said, my hair turned out great.

I had a manicure/pedicure and the therapist (Julianne) was lovely - she was attentive, thorough and friendly. The only downside was that the varnish on the manicure was left extremely wet so before I left the salon 4 nails had smudged. Not sure if nails are usually dried more or if it was because appointments were over-running slightly (it was the weekend so was very busy). I would go again however as I liked the salon (very clean and staff were all great) and the pedicure was excellent.

Service is reasonable but I've had better gels. Good selection of colour. Doesn't spend as much time shaping nails as I'd like

I enjoyed my pre-holiday pedicure at Brasil hair - we used a fab OPI polish in coral.
I just got back from the trip which included climbing volcanos in sandals... and the pedi has held up beautifully!

I had a folmeldehyde free bbd and honestly I could not rate my experience any higher- the frizz has completely been removed from my hair. I bought my baby with me to the appointment- the staff were so helpful with her too and fed her and looked after her while I was having my treatment. Thank you ladies I will be back. If the salon did the Dominican blow dry technique that would be amazing- please consider! Also my cousin will be in next week.

Great, friendly place (although I agree it can be hard to communicate as a non-Portuguese speaker!) - the only thing I'd recommend is to do a bit of research first if you've never had a Brazilian blow dry before. This is not a straightening treatment, but it will leave your hair smoother. If you're very concerned about formaldehyde, be aware you could still be exposed to it - this is a small salon and if someone else is having the treatment with formaldehyde, there will be fumes. It wasn't a problem for me, but others may be more sensitive.

Juliana did a good job with my manicure. Cuticle excess was gently removed without any pain. Nail polish was applied in the Brazilian way, covering the whole nail and not leaving gaps between polish and nail bed. I will come back.

Without a doubt the best wax I've had in London! Lovely staff, quick and almost painless - I'll definitely be coming back!
