Truly a lovely experience. A fantastic conditioning treatment complementary and head massage was a good start for a fabulous blowdry! Not only are the staff professional but also very time efficient. For me their blowdrys last for a good 3 days - a feat for someone with unruly hair!

Great haircut from Billiana, she took the time to find out what I wanted. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a professional salon.

I made the appointment on the day and the guys were really accomodating and managed to fit me in at 6.30pm. I got offered a drink as soon as I walked in the door and the stylist talked through what I wanted. I got a wash, cut and blow-dry and couldn't be happier, I came out feeling like Kate Middleton there was so much volume! I'm thinking of going back to get my colour done. 5*.

Man who cut my hair had a very peculiar manner and was very cold, verging on rude.
I would not go back again and would not recommend this salon.

Very polite and friendly staff. It's a business-like vibe not one where the stylists chat much with the customers. The highlights were quite a bit blonder than I expected, but they looked good. The stylist suggested using two tones to make it a bit more natural look.

I was very happy with the highlights and the customer care. The colour looks great! I recommend this hairdresser. It is centrally located.

Great hairstylist, I was with Istvan. Very friendly. Perfect hair cut and blow dry was exactly what i wanted - which doesn't happen often! I would definitely recommend!

I went for my blowdry when there was a powercut around Holborn due to a fire under ground. The salon was still open to deal with clients/appointments. When I arrived she took me to T&G in Covent Garden. I thought it was so thoughtful, helpful and accommodating to that. Blowdry was awesome too.

Hair cut well, but the place was a bit grotty, walked in and the receptionist staff were having an argument.

Dear Abbie
We are very sorry if you witnessed an argument when you walked in our salon. Our receptionist was actually on holiday, so someone else was covering. We would like to see you again, and if you would like to visit us again, we will be happy to offer you a complementary hair treatment.
Kind regards

My appointment was quite late so the ambience was a bit tired but everyone took good care of me. I had a treatment which cost a little extra but was definitely worth it as my hair feels so silky today! The cut was good, I asked for a trim and tidy up and she didn't take off too much like some places do. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

This was the best hair experience I have had. The stylist got what I wanted and gave great advice, didn't push products but was really helpful. Will be recommending and going back

This place is always laid back and friendly some may find it to be a little more so than necessary but I like it. My cut was okay, I just went in for a trim so it is what it is! They guy was thorough and quick.

The chap that cut my hair hardly spoke to me, didn't seem to be interested in me, rolled his eyes at me a few times and then at others (so I knew it wasn't just me!) and actually criticized my home hair colouring! We don't all want to pay salon prices every six weeks after all, it was unnecessary.
I would not go to this chap again for the above reasons, even though he did cut my hair really well / I left the salon with huge 80's / going out hair which made a change from normal straightened hair (however, I didn't ask for huge hair).

Had a men's haircut and my stylist was great! Never caught her name though but I believe she was one of the managing stylists. She gave me great advice during the consultation and made sure I knew everything that she was doing. She did a great thorough job and I didn't feel rushed at all. Even got some product samples before I left!
