Tired of the constant and paiInful waxing I researched lazer hair removal. SOOO expensive, but I stumbled upon Cobella in High Street Kensington. Fantastic staff, and the therapists were professional and considerate, they explained everyting well and I felt totally confident having the treatment done. Also it was very successful! As I had had my hair cut short last year and was getting impatient waiting for it to grow, I asked if I could speak to one of the styist about having hair extensions. Adam luckily had time to talk to me and I booked in the next day for my new hair! It is sooooooo good and I love swishing it! Thanks to everyone at Cobella. Great staff and a super professional salon.

Again, I'm rating a place I go to all the time but this time it's different: I went away because I couldn't afford going there anymore but I couldn't find a place that did as good a job. I see Adam who works here. I save up and go and the last time the colour was so wonderful that I had to call him and say thank you. It's a working salon, sometimes you have to sit and wait and it can be hard to get them to pick up the phone, but I love it. My hair doesn't look good when I go elsewhere - and I've tried at least 3 (Macs, Cuts and a place when I was in America) other places to have my hair done before I went back this year.

I had the Brazillian Blow Dry at Cobella Kensington. From the moment I got there I was really relaxed.
The staff are all friendly and helpful. The stages of the treatment were fully explained to me and I was extremely pleased with the results. There is no hard sell to but certain products but my therapist advised that the shampoo and conditioner were a good way of prolonging the treatment and making sure that you got the best results.
The only downside of this treatment is that you can't wash your hair for 3/4 days after but saying that my hair still looked lovely after then and not at all greasy.
My hair is much more manageable and softer and I hardly have to use my straighteners. I would certainly have this treatment again but only if there is another voucher!

I got a mob deal on Wahanda for the Brazilian Blow Dry which was a very good deal off their normal price. The discount was almost 70% off.

The receptionist was not very welcoming as she left me on my own for a good 10 mins before she inquired why I was there. She was busy chatting with her colleagues even though I was patiently watiting in front of the reception counter waiting to be served.

The stylist was quite harassed as it was quite busy when I arrived. However she was very polite and offered me a drink and seated me comfortably and discussed what the BBD would entail as it was my first time.

The BBD was ok only as it seemed she was a junior stylist and she didn't feel as experienced for such a specialized treatment. I think I wouldn't have appreciated it as much if I had paid the full £250 and got this level of service. However as it was so cheap, I didn't comment on it too much.

The place is obviously a hair salon more than a spa. I dont think I would be tempted to do a treatment here. Not unless it was a very good deal or promotion on.

I didn't know what to expect, but after a long day at work it was enjoyable. So far I am very happy with the brazilian blow dry and if it continues as it is now then I would have this treatment done again

Excellent salon, great location and my hairdresser Helena was lovely. Great value and a great result. will definitely go back, but only with a voucher though, as the price of a Brazillian blow-dry is quite steep without the discount.

Took about 1.5 hours which was good going, as sometimes it can take 2 hours

I was booked in for a Brazilian blowdry at Selfridges. I got a great mobdeal, it cost £80 and the value was £200. The guy who did my hair was very friendly and looked after me throughout. The procedure was 2 hours long, started with a hair wash, followed by the keratin application. This was then followed by a blowdry and then straighten. When I had my last blowdry the keratin made my eyes burn, this was at Toni and Guy but this time I had no problems, just a pleasant chocolate smell. I am looking forward to Wahanda running another mobdeal on this so I can book it again.

I found out my usual hairdressers' closed down so took a gamble and tried out Cobella in Kensington (I've been to the Tony & Guy on Kensington Church Street and wasn't impressed).
Initial impression: clean, sleek, nice smiley staff
Hairdresser: Clayton is a nice guy, efficient and gave me loads of tips on how to keep my hair healthy, on top of giving me a good new cut. He didn't try to hard sell any products but did mention a few that would be suited to me (which is a relief as I'm not very tolerant of hard selling). He styled my hair using no product at all and i've never seen it looking so healthy and shiny. Must be the way he uses the drier but it's nice to see that I don;t have to overload my hair anymore
Facilities: the main floor is very nice, tidy and sleek in appearance. But since all the wash basins were occupied i was taken downstairs which is a bit grotty - hence i gave it a 3/5 ranking. Not sure if they are working on it or not, but it didn't do much harm to my whole hair-washing experience since i doze off for a few minutes anyway
Value: £65 for a cut and blow dry by a senior stylist is steep but I had a good experience and will go back as I left with an awesome head of hair
Other: The manicure station is just by the door and doesn't look all that - i wasn't tempted to get my nails done

Great salon and friendly therapist, good location. The Brazilian blowdry treatment was pleasant and well executed by Kristina, nice tea and chat. The salon is smart and clean which goes a long way. I only had the treatment done last week ad to be honest I did not enjoy having flat and poker hair straight for three days and I don't really notice any difference in my hair after having washed it with the special shampoo and conditioner but maybe this is because my hair is only shoulder length? I will see how it goes but so far better as a conditioning treatment than anything else. I was surprised to be offered shampoo and conditioner for sale with sodium laureth sulphate in which I thought was a big no no for hair after this treatment so encourage the salon to check this. I would go back for regular cuts and colour but not sure about this treatment.

I went for my first Brazilian Blow Dry here. Salon is very nice, stylish, clean and comfortable. Only negative was that I was kept waiting for 10 minutes past my appointment time - annoying when you have rushed from work to be there on time. Very comfortable seats for washing hair. Person doing the treatment was brilliant, very nice and friendly and explained the treatment. It didn't take as long as I feared - around one hour 20 (hair is quite long). Had to buy special shampoo and conditioner for the special keratin process, over £30 which was annoyingly pricey but then the blow dry was only £80 through this site and I have seen it advertised at closer to £200 normally so it's still a very good deal. It's a pain that you can't get the hair wet for 3 days afterwards - that includes sweating during exercise so next time I'm going to get it done during the week when I don't work out.

My stylist was great, very friendly and professional. The salon was nice but a little dull and magazines and a drink only offered to me after being there for over 30 minutes. Overall though I am very pleased with the results and my hair looks amzing. I would definitely have it done again but possibly at the selfridges branch.

I had the Brazilian Blowdry which was really good value at £80 even compared to other offers I have seen on Wahanda. The therapist was really nice and even cut my fringe for free when she had finished the treatment. The salon itself was also nice and I was offered drinks and magazines. The treatment itsellf has transformed my hair routine ad=s my hair is so smooth and shiny that I don't need to straighten it anymore.

I recently had my hair cut and coloured at Cobella, I have to say that I have never been so pleased with my hair both the cut & colour. Really friendly and attentive. I will be back for sure!

The staff were very friendly but the body scrub was rudimentary and i was left feeling grainy - although it shouldn't have been necessary my friend had to go for a shower afterwards.
The therapist was very chatty but couldn't really explain the treatments.
The pedicure was excellent - i went for a nice sparkly navy blue.

My therapist was very nice and gave me lots of skincare advice while she was doing my facial. It's a very short walk from High St Ken tube too.


It's hardly palatial, from what I could see there were only a couple of treatment rooms and the waiting area where you sit until you're called in is v small. Nice, but pokey.
