I had a really lovely hair cut here. No frills, the lady did exactly as I asked and I was very happy with the result. Great for a quick hairstyle update!

I couldn't have asked for more - welcoming, engaging, smiley and Sharon really listened to what I asked for. Great style, lovely compliments received already!

Have used James Alexander a few times now and would I recommend it. My hair always sits nicely after it has been cut here, not just on the day but continually, a sign of a good hairdresser!

Totally unreliable. Booked Brazilian blow dry through Wahanda. Next day salon called to say the time I had booked was unavailable despite the fact that the whole day had appeared to be free. In order to get that day I had to change to a different staff member at a different time. In addition to this I was informed that the price shown on Wahanda was not guaranteed - it could cost more depending on the length of my hair . Day before appointment was informed by salon that they had run out of the product and I would have to reschedule. I did so for a week later only to have them cancel on me again for the same reason. Too late now to get keratin treatment before Christmas. Wahanda have refunded me but overall very, very unimpressed with James Alexander.

I just had my hair cut by Toni/Antonia and she was great. She gave me a lovely side-fringe and shaped the rest of my hair nicely. I'll happily go back to her when it's time for another trim.

The staff are very friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed my haircut here. I only marked OK for cleanliness because the shelf along the front of the mirror looked pretty dusty. Compared to other salons, I wasn't offered a tea or coffee or a magazine, so slightly disappointed. I would come back here, no holiday chat, just easy conversation.
