Very good! The lady couldn't speak English but was lovely. Would have been better if she spoke English so I could enjoy a chat. Would still recommend.

First time that I have done highlights and the hairdresser spot on the colour, she has done a great job! I would recommend and go back to Brazil hair

I had full hand waxing at Brazilian Hair Islington. I was happy overall with the result and I would most probably go back again

Stylist couldn't speak english, so it was difficult communicating what I wanted. Staff were still sweet regardless. Sadly the hair at the front of my hair wasn't blended in well enough - however the shampoo and wash and blow dry was LOVELY!


I'd recommend the salon - but take caution with who you book with.

Was slightly odd that i had to hold myself while i was waxed, otherwise the best wax i've ever had.
Totally worth the price, nice salon too.

I used to be a regular and always very pleased with the service of this saloon.

Things changed when the new beautician, Lisa took over. When I attended the saloon for my waxing appointment, I was very disappointed to hear that I need to wait for 30 minutes. This wasn't ideal since I had already traveled for 30 min to get there.

Although the saloon was empty and Lisa was finishing a manicure (she was sitting next to me but never bothered to talk to me in English) the receptionist offered to reschedule my appointment which I seriously consider for 15 min. When I decided to stay and have the service on the day, she announced that the waiting time had increased to an hour. I asked what changed within these 15 minutes and whether they booked someone else in the meantime and the answer was no.
Obviously, the staff doesn't like the discounts the saloon offers through Wahanda and they were trying to get rid of me.

I award them one star for the speed of the refund processed.

Salon was very busy and was seated 20mins after appointment time. Was happy to wait as not in a rush but unhappy with hair cut also.Had a hair mask, cut and blow dry. My hairdresser didn't speak English so another staff member had to translate what I wanted. Wanted a trim and to neaten up my long layers and now have short hair. I tried to explain my hair is curly so nothing too short as it doesn't sit well & now will have to pin back my fringe until it grows out or pull my hair up. Would not return!

Perfect! I had a blowdry with Mayara and it was amazing. I have natural Afro hair Which can be difficult to get straight so I was a little apprehensive about trying a new salon. I needed to get it done and decided to give this place a go. I am so glad I did. The salon was very easy to find and the receptionist was welcoming and chatty. Mayara was smiling and friendly and found her English to be at an ok standard so the language barrier wasn't an issue for me. I am definitely going to be back to see her and am going to recommend to my friends. Thank you Mayara and Brasil Hair.

I got a balayage treatment for the first time and the experience was good. I have to see if my hair is damaged (crossing fingers) but service was nice.

Amazing staff and people. The only reason I haven't given 5 star is because the treatment took longer than expected and I ended up 30 minute late for work.. But it was worth :) my hair looks amazing and healthy

If you are thinking of getting a Brazilian Blow Dry, Brasil Hair is the best place to have it done, they did a brilliant job on my hair. Lovely place (easy walk from Angel tube station 5-10 mins walk), clean salon, warm atmosphere. The staff were attentive and well experienced. Very pleased whit the results and the whole expereince. I will definitely go again.

I went for a brazilian wax at the salon. The beautician was really sweet, although she didn't speak much English. The waxing ended up taking forever, and she explained half way through that this was the first time she had ever done it. It was not the most comfortable wax I've ever had, but she was really friendly and I could tell she was a bit nervous. It wasn't great but I would go back again, as I think with mor experience the beautician will be fine. After the appointment the boss phoned and asked for my feedback on the beautician, and said that she would give me a discounted rate next time for providing feedback, so I was quite pleased about that.
