Josh was very tentative and was excellent with my requests. The salon was friendly and had a busy feel to it.

I would like to say a big thanks to veronica who did my brazilian straightening on saturday. For the first time in my life I managed to do my own hair and not struggle with it!! Thanks to the owner Josh who spoke to me at the beginning and also cut my hair into a shape before the treatment. As I have always had dry, frizzy hair I always kept it long but Josh was convinced that going shorter would give me a better style and he was right. Even my boyfriend loves it!

I had a perm treatment two weeks ago ( I waited for that long with a review as I hoped the condition of my hair would change)..
Anyways my hair is completely damaged, dried and frizzy and looks horrible!!! I've never ever had anything as bad in my whole life!
The hairdresser ( was she really a hairdresser?)Was very incompetent! I didn't have any tests done to check if my hair is suitable to get such a treatment ( apparently is not). I asked about soft, big, natural waves what I got was some kind of ''poodle dog'' look..I literally cried while being there...You upset me! you stressed me!
I didn't pay for that service as it was a complete failure! Although my review is very negative and I'll never go back to that salon, I have to say that the owner was nice and was trying to save the situation in a very professional way. Good points for him, very bad for the hairdresser!!

I like Joshua Altback salon, it has a very high-end feel to it without being pretentious. My hair cut and colour were both fine although it was slightly on the expensive side.

A lovely salon on St Johns Wood High Street. The customers were an interesting mix of old ladies and St Johns Wood yummy mummies. The staff were very nice and I really liked my treatment. The only downside was that I was left for 15 minutes at the sink next to a lady who was having a very strong smelling chemical treatment on her hair.

I got given "hair extensions" for Christmas so I booked my appointment at Joshua Altback's in St John's Wood and loved every second! I was very excited as my hair was very fine and never grows past a certain length. The extensions were really applied carefully and I don't even feel like they are there. The process took a while but my hair was well looked after and I now look like I have the thickest and most luxurious hair. While I was there and to take up some of the time, I had a manicure as well, my nails were really treated beautifully and I left the salon looking and feeling great. Will definitely go back.

Amazing time at Josh Altback's salon where I had a cut and blow dry and a manicure. Loving my new hair cut and my nails look great. Booked to go back next week for a party and will definitely be recommending. Nice staff, nice, clean and trendy salon - easy to park and I enjoyed being pampered ;)

I had been going to another hairdresser for years but felt they had become complacent so I visited Joshua Altback, also on recommendation. Nick did my colour and transformed my normally mousy hair into a really luxurious sort of caramel look - really suits me. Joshua blow dried my hair and I had a lovely manicure. I've now booked a hair cut for next month there as I feel confident it will be great.

I went for highlights at this salon but they were so faint that it seemed as if I'd had nothing done at all! It seemed most of the (elderly) clients had been there for the past 30 years. The reason I didn't go back was because they overcharged me for something and it was difficult trying to get my money back! Good location though.
