I had a great experience at this salon, as others have mentioned the little touches are great - tea, a welcome note, and most of all an amazing post hair-wash neck and shoulder massage. The staff are polite and friendly and I was really happy with my cut - the hairdresser did exactly as I asked.

Salon is really cool. Staff are all Japanese and extremely nice and polite. I had the best hair wash i have ever had - it was almost like a machine was doing it! The lady that cut my hair was lovely and very very careful. She did exactly what i asked for and spent a lot of time making sure it was right. My only negative was the blow dry. I have extremely curly hair and am very good at blowing my own hair. She tried to blow it straight but it was still quite frizzy at the end. Al around a very positive experience though. THe neck and shoulder massage was incredible too!

best service and haircut by far. thank you!! after i had so many bad haircuts. this may finally be the salon for me.

cant wait to go back but to enjoy the loyalty discount, have to go back so soon. wouldn't mind that though since the shoulder massage, the haircut and the finishing up ie the blow dry was so amazingly good!

I went for a cut and blow dry. I had the best hair wash ever, it was incredibly thorough and a brief head masssage was followed by an incredible shoulder massage. The hair cut was quick but decent, I wasn't keen on the finish/ styling. They do make an effort with nice little touches though.

Love how they leave a note to welcome u to the salon and how they place a variety of magazines at ur booth for u to read. My stylist is Massa and she's very attentive. Overall a pleasant experience and I will go back again.

What a wonderful experience - every little detail had been thought through. I was given a head massage, shoulder massage and offered a selection of drinks, all included in the price of my haircut. Little extras, like a personalised welcome note really made for a unique and lovely appointment. I will definitely come here again.

I had an OK experience. The haircut was actually quite good but the biggest stumbling block is that my stylist didn't have good English, so it was difficult to explain to her exactly what I wanted. Communication is key when you get your hair done, as you all know. However, all my friends and family really like the cut. Not sure as this point as to whether or not I'll return for another cut.

Very relaxing and friendly experience. They even gave me a shoulder and neck massage after the shampoo. The hairdresser was very sweet and accommodating. Would definitely recommend.

After an uncertain start when I wasn't sure if the hairdresser understand how I'd like my highlights to look, I was really pleasantly surprised - and relieved - with the results. She was very particular and also polite and friendly. If I get a chance I'd be definitely going back!

It was excellent... There was a bit of a wait to start off with but they took great care and paid a lot of attention towards the job at hand. Loved the massage!

I absolutely loved my experience at Hayato, and can't wait to go back. The staff were really great at making you feel relaxed and at ease - I had a little note by my chair thanking me for visiting, I was given a small bag for my jewellery and was offered refreshments too, including a shortbread biscuit! When my hair was being washed I was given a pretty thorough head massage, which was very relaxing. And once I was seated in my chair ready to go the assistant then asked if I wanted a shoulder/neck massage - though I confess I misheard what she asked and replied 'sure'- though it turned out to be amazing so I was glad I responded as I did! my hairdresser was Maasa and she was very professional and made me feel so at ease, she double checked the length I wanted and even added her own suggestion which I really appreciated. I felt very safe with her cutting my hair. The second round of cutting (once she had blow dried my hair) was something I've not experienced before, but it makes sense and really helped to perfect my new style. I will absolutely go back. The whole experience was such an unexpected joy.

Being Japanese, this place was just like going to a hair salon in Tokyo. From the head massage to little touch like the name tags on every chair prior to your arrival to the drinks with shortbread.. you would expect this in a Japanese salon. You don't get that service anywhere else. So for that alone, you should come here. The staff's English is not great, so I overheard some english girls struggling to get their blow dry instructions correctly to the guy. But hey ho, the cut is very careful and to a good standard, the blow dry is not super but satisfactory, and you do not get hair on your face or inside your clothes which is a plus, so you can go out straight after! Great location, go.

The staff were all very nice, gave me a cup of tea and a massage which was great! Haircut seemed a little average though which was surprising. No one could tell the difference - and the haircut 'halo' didn't even last until the next morning! I had to put it in a ponytail for work - usually a fresh haircut, when blowdried and styled nicely, should last at least 24 hours!! A bit disappointed, but the staff were very friendly.

Excellent customer service. It started with a friendly welcome note by my chair and then followed by the best shampoo and massage I had for some time. Then it was time for my haircut. I was pleasantly surprised by how attentive the hairdresser was. He really listened to what I wanted and delivered a great haircut. I would greatly recommend.

This was a great experience, I'm so glad I gave them a shot!

I had my hair cut by Massa. My hair is fine, and longish, and hadn't been cut for *ages* (split ends everywhere). She spent time to trim out the split ends, without taking too much off the length: my hair looks mostly the same, but soon healthy now!

Also, the shoulder massage was probably the best I've had at a hair salon - although I didn't get the girl's name. Recommended, and I'll be back!
