Really good experience - staff is very friendly! They take their time to do the treatment properly and it was a really good value for money

As with my manicure, the pedicure I had is messy. It was nice to have a foot soak too for this price. The technician cut my cuticle too much, which meant I left with a bloody and
sore toe.

Feet are smooth but nails - messy.

While this was a great price -my manicure is a little messy. There wasn't a
great selection of colours so I ended up settling for one that I wasn't completely happy with. I also has to ask to have them filed smooth.

I have been to Brasil Hair three times now and was always very pleased. Sure, the ambience is probably not quite 5-star, but if this is what you are after go to West End (and spend 3-times more!). Their Brasilian Blow Dry is an excellent value - why pay more for super fancy places when you can get exactly the same quality treatment here? Their blow dries are also amazing two, twice I had it done by Elizabeth who was very good. I had also had my hair cut and highlighted. I was super-pleased with all the treatments. The lady who seems to be the manager is always very friendly, she listens carefully which means you get exactly what you want.
Most recently I went to change my hair colour from brown to blond. It was a long process, but Wisler did an amazing job and I have been getting lots of "wows" since then. I have seen other reviews on lack of language skills, but I have not had any problems communicating what I needed done which was always achieved. Personally, I think it is actually quite nice to be able to relax and catch up on magazine read instead of small talk with strangers.
I will definitely be going back.

Friendly staff, a good service. A bit slow and messy towards the end of the day, but I'm glad that they're open so late.

This is the second Brazilian Blow Dry that I've had at Brasil, they do a great job!
I felt like I was in safe hands throughout. The staff were friendly and smiley, there was a little bit of a language barrier but just letting my stylist get on with the treatment was fine by me. She gave me the option of the strength to use which was a nice touch, I like to keep a bit of wave :) Thank you!

There is a bit of a language barrier with some (not all) of the staff, but it's excellent value, an excellent product and wonderful service. The lady who did my eyebrow wax especially was fantastic. Will definitely be back.

The Hairdresser didn't speak any English and he hadn't even seen my hair dry before getting it washed. The staff were very friendly and the treatments were amazing!

Don't get a haircut here if you only speak English. Staff really do only speak a few words. They seemed nice, but being able to communicate is important when getting a haircut, and the language barrier made for a really uncomfortable experience. I wasn't happy with my haircut (it's uneven on each side), but couldn't communicate this to get it fixed. Will need to shell out again for another cut elsewhere to neaten it up. I also had a 45 minute wait from the time of my appointment until my hair was cut. The cut itself lasted about 10 mins.

Unable to communicate with therapist as they did not speak English. Male back waxing usually involves blending a gradient into the shoulders and arms so that there isn't an abrupt and severe line of hair/no hair. Trying to explain and request this was impossible due to no common language, and the receptionist whom came to help us just kept asking if I would like my entire arms waxed too (!!). Men, suggest jogging on.

The staff didn't speak much English so it was difficult to communicate.
I didn't feel very relaxed and the process and machinery used was different to any Brazilian blowdry I've had before. (I've had over 10) It also took longer than usual at 2.5 hours.

Best wax so far at this place. I'd recommend it to anyone. Always ask to use the mirror at the end to inspect yourself at the end

Luis is very nice and took the time to make sure was really arrow-straight (which is hard to do given my large amount of very curly hair). He not only blow-dryed it but also asked me if I wanted to reinforce the 'do with a straightener, which I thought was a nice touch. Hair super shiny and super straight, I'm very happy!

The salon was lovely and clean and the staff very friendly. I turned up half and hour early for my appointment and they were able to fit me in right away.

The staff are lovely but don't go here if you want a short haircut or if you have somewhere to be. I had to come back to get my haircut fixed and was left waiting for an hour and a half. The staff may be friendly but it's not enough to compensate
