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!

My hair was cut just how I like it and was styled very well. The Salon was very helpful, giving me directions when I was lost and making sure I had all the refreshments I needed. The Stylist also gave me some tips on maintaining my hair and recommended products.

Really pleased with my haircut and blowdry at this salon. I would recommend this salon to others. Convenient location by Covent Garden.

I was having a drastic change with my hair, almost 8 inches off. I showed the stylist a picture of the look I wanted, the result wasn't identical and a little 'over-styled' for my liking. But once got home and was able to tweak it I liked it more. I would go back here but perhaps not for something so drastic. The stylist did more of his own impression of what I wanted, rather than copying it.

Had a really great haircut with Istvan. Very professional, very thorough and it didn't take too long. He was able to advise on my chosen style, and made sure I was comfortable with the length etc. Im very happy!

Really simple, quick and good experience. London can be a nightmare for finding a decent hairdresser who listens to you but my experience here was great. Would recommend.

Wonderful experience. My hair was beautifully washed, treated and then cut by the manager who did a great job, despite my vague instructions and not really wanting any drastic changes. My hair feels thicker and is a much better shape. All staff were friendly and welcoming even though it was the last appointment of the day. Will return.

The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, the salon is lovely and they cut my hair exactly how I wanted it - I couldn't be more pleased! The whole experience was what you would expect in a salon where you're paying £90 or more for a hair cut, but at half that price. Will absolutely be back!

I was very happy with the haircut I had by Billi at Essensuals. She took her time to understand exactly what I wanted, gave me advice and spent time making my hair look wonderful. All staff were friendly but professional. It was a very enjoyable evening and I will most certainly be going back. I even purchased some products after my haircut. It is not often I enjoy going to the hairdresser because I am rarely happy with the cut and always feel like it has been rushed, but not with Billi at Essensuals. Very happy, thank you Wahanda.

Very nice salon and lovely staff. I had been going for waxing and decided to try a blow dry at the same venue. The service was fantastic. However, I would say that just a little too much product was used on my hair. It meant that I had to wash it the next day, when I had really wanted a blow dry that would last me all weekend. It looked beautiful for an evening, but felt very heavy.
