I made use of the voucher for balayage, haircut and blow dry. The staff were great and the result was amazing. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Had a cut and blowdry with a keratin treatment. My hair has never felt so soft. It was absolutely amazing and over one week and four washes later, it still has a freshly treated feel.
Andrey cut my hair, he was wonderful, not very chatty whilst cutting, but that didn't bother me. Chloe applied the treatment and was diligent and very professional in doing so. She also gave me a head massage which was fantastic.
My only bug bear was that as the only customer in the salon at the time, the atmosphere was a little quiet/serious, but overall a great experience.

I felt very looked after, had a lovely head massage. Andrey cut my hair and he really paid attention to what I wanted. A great cut and left the salon feeling pampered :)

I've been getting my hair cut by Francesco for about four years and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. I have thick, wavy long hair which can be difficult to work with but Francesco always cuts it in a way which reduces frizz and ensures I do not need to spend an eternity on styling. I think a sign of a good cut is one which grows out well and Francesco's cuts always look great after a few weeks! I love the relaxed atmosphere of the salon and its really sweet of Francesco to always email his clients about the dates he is going on holiday to ensure you can squeeze in a haircut before he goes away if you need it. //M

It is the first time I have been to this salon and it was a pleasant surprise. Daniele was very knowledgeable when I asked him what I should do about my highlights and my hair cut. I am very happy with the final result and I would definitely go back there again.

My second time at this salon, last haircut was brilliant.
This time, a good cut and blow dry but about 4inches shorter than what I asked for!
I have been in tears and I hate that I no longer look like myself.
Essentially if you have long hair and want to keep long hair you are going to need to draw a line on your back.
The hairdresser told me so much had to be cut as my hair wasn't healthy - fine, but tell me that before you hack it off!!
I won't be back again

Trendy location and ambience. Good quick service which was good.
The consultation was very brief but effective. If you have time then I would recommend getting a consultation at this cool location in Shoreditch.

It was actually a very good consultation. I arrived 15 mins early and Francesco saw me straight away so I didn't have to wait around! He was honest about my hair which I really appreciate as I have dyed it permanent black about 10 times so I would rather someone be honest about how blonde I can go without going ginger (not that there is anything wrong with being ginger).

It is pricey for Balayge highlghts but I am thinking of getting it done here cos the consult impressed me. Franceso was also very honest about what colors would suit me, as originally I wanted a fiery red color and he said "no" straight away. I would much rather someone be honest about it and save me making an expensive mistake

My hairdresser Andrew was amazing! He really took time and effort to figure out the style and colour I wanted, and also tried to create a maximum result through my thick and dark hair. Before visiting this venue, my hair was already permed and the ends were very damaged and dry. However, the end result was more than satisfactory! Without damaging my ends too much, I got a lovely ombre hair and what's more, he avoided the orange and yellow tones that can easily come out from dark hair like mine. During the whole session, I felt really pampered with delicious cups of coffee and magazines. The whole procedure was professional but at the same time not rushed. Really enjoyed the ambient atmosphere, and I will definitely, definitely visit again. I have a feeling that I will be a regular here!

DO NOT GO HERE. Genuinely the worst experience I have ever had in a hairdresser. It says on the small print that a blow-dry is £20 extra (charged at the appointment). I had, therefore, assumed that a rough dry would be free and so was going to opt for that given the high price of the colouring treatment. I was informed whilst my hair was being done that it would be £20 to dry my hair, and I said I didn't want a blow dry, and was then told it was £20 for a rough dry and £27 for a blow dry. I said no, I'd clearly read the fine print and as I lived round the corner I'd be happy to leave it but wasnt going to pay £20 extra for them to blast it with a hairdryer for a minute. The (nice) guy colouring my hair was finding it very awkward running in between me and the manager relaying our arguments, and finally the manager came over. He started (literally) screaming at me saying, YOU MUST PAY £20, IT SAYS IT ON THE WEBSITE, ITS £20 FOR A ROUGH DRY, WHAT IS £20 TO YOU, YOU PAY £20 FOR A DRINK THESE DAYS, £20 IS NOTHING. He wouldn't listen when I tried to justify myself and asked why, if they make it a requirement to have a £20 'rough dry', is that not added on to the price, and its clear deception. He wouldn't let me speak and continued to shout in my face, to the point where I burst into tears (!). Even then, he continued screaming, and the hairdresser took me to have my hair washed. He kept apologising for the manager's behaviour. Another customer even had to come and ask if I was ok. I left with dripping wet hair, still in tears.

Absolutely disgusting customer service and behaviour. The hair highlights I was actually pleased with - so if you don't being mind screamed at until you cry, or paying a MANDATORY £20 (not clear from the fine print unless this has been amended) for a 'rough dry' blast of a hairdryer, then go...

Thank you for your comment and we are very sorry if you felt that way. All customer feedbacks are very important and valued for us to improve our services. We have been extra careful about the voucher restriction and are working hard with Wahanda to sort out any issues we had in the past. We advice customers on the phone and send a confirmation email to remind customers to read the voucher restrictions to avoid any disappointment as well as quote this upon consultation and unfortunately we cannot make any exceptions. However we will continue working hard to satisfy all customers as much as possible. Thank you for the feedback.

You did not inform me on the phone of the mandatory £20. I did read the voucher details clearly - which clearly stated a BLOW DRY was £20. There was no mention it was required or that it was a lie, and that a blow dry was actually £27 and a rough dry £20

The stylist was very helpful! I knew more or less what colour I wanted my hair to be but had no idea what shade to use. He looked at my skin tone & eye colour and gave good suggestions. I love the end result!
Thanks

My appointment was for balayage, a cut and a blow dry, and I definitely think it was great value for money. The whole process took around 3 hours, and Andrew my stylist was fantastic. He knew exactly what he was doing, listened to me and made sure I was getting what I wanted. Thanks Andrew!
