Great haircut, they cut it exactly as I asked. I would definitely go back to the salon again one of the better Japanese salons in London

I didn't feel confident in my stylist they didn't act very experienced and there English was not great. Not what you want when asking for your hair to be cut I only asked for some layers to be cut in and showed two pictures on my phone and it seemed very complex.
I read reviews about saying it was a relaxing experience and the lady next to me seemed to be having that experience with a head massage and a lot of time spent overall the hair cut was ok the blow dry was not and the stylist did try his best.

Excellent cut and great customer service. Loved the shoulder massage included in the price. It was good to go to a salon where you didn't feel you were just another person being rushed through on the conveyor belt of appointments.

This was my second time booking a haircut appointment via Wahanda. I made a booking for a Saturday morning, and the place was much quieter than I was expecting. I was greeted by the staff at reception who turned out to be Maasa, my hairstylist that day. My appointment notification initially said that I was going to get my hair done by Marine, but I didn't mind having either to do my hair as it was my first time. She took my coat and bag to be kept away safely in the wardrobe. I was given a questionnaire to fill in before being shown to my seat, where Marine ask about how I wanted my hair to be cut. There was a sweet little note on the side that had my name on it, which was a nice touch. There was also a drinks menu on the side, but I wasn't offered a drink so I was a bit shy to ask for one. She then brought me over to get my hair washed. She was very gentle and also gave a relaxing head massage during the hair wash. I was then shown back to my seat where I was also given a comfy cushion to rest my hands on. Maasa made sure to check that she was cutting according to how I wanted it and that she didn't cut off too much as I told her that I wanted to keep it as long as possible. After cutting, she dried my hair - she was extremely gentle with the brush unlike most places that I go to that sometimes tug quite hard. After it was dry she tidied up my hair and thinned it out a bit. I mentioned that I liked having the ends of my hair curled inwards and she very patiently curled the ends with a thong, which turned out really well. She then applied some hairspray for me.
At the end she asked if I had time for a shoulder massage, which I smilingly agreed to. The shoulder massage was excellent, with a good amount of pressure.
As it was my first time, I made use of the offer for New Customers which was £40 instead of £50. I was given a copy of the price list, and the associate level haircut is actually the cheapest at £50, which then can go upto £100 for "Hayato" level stylist. I have to be honest and say that this place will unlikely be my regular spot because it is quite pricey without the New Customer offer, compared to other places. It was still however overall a very pleasant experience.

Hayato was absolutely amazing! I highly recommend it. They offered me not only a head massage but also a back massage and there were so many lovely little personal touches; such as a little menu with drinks and a name tag on the mirror! Hiro was fantastic and my hair feels and looks great!

Great haircut at Hayato! Lovely small salon and very pleasant staff. My hairdresser Marine was great, she made suggestions for my hair type and I love how it turned out. Super bonus: it started pouring rain when I had to leave, and they gave me an umbrella so my hair wouldn't get ruined. Top notch quality and service, will definitely be back.

I was really impressed with my cut and colour. I love how it came out and the cut and deep condition treatment resurrected my tired and fried hair. It was fantastic and just what I needed.

I'm always a little nervous about trying a new hairdresser but there was nothing to fear here. My (really lovely) stylist understood how my hair worked and what I wanted, and she stopped every few minutes to check I was happy with it - a perfect experience. The massage was amazing too!

Really good with shoulder massage and haircut with little personalised note! The offer is only for 1st time customers so probably won't go back due to price.

Had a lovely haircut from Hayato last week. Marine the hairstylist was very professional and paid attention to every detail of the cut. The shoulder massage that came after the cut was pretty amazing too. Overall pretty happy with the experience at Hayato.

Marine gave me an excellent wash, cut and blow dry. She was very friendly and professional (but no attempt to make small talk, which is appreciated!). The salon looks great, too.
