I was bitterly disappointed with the service I received. I had purchased a voucher for a head massage, cut, blow-dry and glass of bubbly. Not only did I not receive half of the services I was expecting- the therapist did not do a head massage, nor did I receive a glass of bubbly- in fact, the therapist was not aware of the offer at all and said she had never seen any bubbly in the salon before. She said her manager had not told any of them about the voucher offer.

Unfortunately I could not speak to a manager as she had left as soon as I arrived, giving instructions to the therapist as to how to lock-up the salon (by climbing on the outside gate!). Me and the therapist were the only two people left in the salon. The basin was also faulty so I had either freezing water or boiling hot water to wash my hair in.

The therapist also did not do a good job of cutting my hair as it has been cut unevenly. The entire treatment took just less than half an hour and certainly was not worth the £65 it was apparently worth.
I took the time to send my feedback to the salon manager directly and never got a response.

My feelings are a bit mixed bag - I made an appointment and travelled there only to find the salon closed with a sign saying they were off for the bank holiday, no one rung me and told me. I made an appointment for 2 weeks time when they reopened and they fit me in after apologising. I had bought the voucher for a full head of highlights but only actually received 3/4 of a head as they were doing me a "favour" by fitting me in just before closing time. I appreciate that they were close to closing time and appreciated fitting me in but I didn't get the full service I paid for and I wasn't offered any money back/off. That said I was happy with the mix of colour the therapist put in my hair and it was a good match to my colour.

I will not exaggerate when saying that this place has now moved to the top of my preferences for Hairdressing services in London. I used to be afraid of getting my hair done - but no longer. Honestly - I'd get my highlights done in France when travelling or in my home country (also to get better value...) but now I'll happily come back here. What a confidence boost that was.
At Academy Standart you will also enjoy the atmosphere - being given 100% of the attention of the staff. Their salon is spacious, yet you are likely to be the sole client - so it's almost like being a VIP. Great location too! THANK YOU xxx

The treatment was done well, and I enjoyed the results. The atmosphere is pleasant and staff polite and well trained, they really know their stuff. Good value deal - I wouldn't hesitate coming back, either for the same treatment either for just a haircut.

Hi upon arriving here I was told i would have to wait 30mins even though I was on time. They eventually relented as I explained I made the appointment at a certain time as I had to return to work. The ambience was empty and this is not the place you would come for an experience or to be pampered, I was not offered a drink etc but the haircut was really good. I have curly hair so its hard to get a good cut but Valeria the stylist definately knew how to cut hair. So if you want a good cut at a good price I would recommend it.

I visited the salon today to have a haircut and half head highlights. The atmosphere was very pleasant,all staff very proffessional and my therapist Valeria did listen to what colour and haircut style I wanted and she delivered to perfection. Absolutely no doubt I would return.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON MAKE UP LESSONS HERE!

I came here for a 3 hour make up lesson.
The staff, I think she was called Miguela ( as she didn't even bother introducing herself at the beginning) was clueless.
She went through a flip chart which was already been written out before hand. We then had a volunteer who she did some make up on, but she stood in front of our view the whole time. Anything we asked her, she wasn't sure about, I left half way through, I thought it was better wasting the money than my time there.

I have complaint to the company about their bad teachings and they didn't even bother replying to me at all.

Lady called Sammy did my highlights. Loved the colour - more gold than I normally have and really suited me. Also done in about half the time that some salons take which was great.

i really enjoyed my visit at this small but nice venue. the stylist Samy advised me about the colouring, and helped me selecting the best solution of safe but wonderful hailr colouring as I'm pregnant. My highlights look really natural! I'm sure I'll be back!

The service I received at the salon for my cut and highlights was excellent and professional. Premises neat and tidy but nothing glamorous.
Only problem was booking as the phone lines are only answered on certain days- but i understand this has been facilitated with an on-line booking facility

She did a good job, and was very friendly. I also got a haircut while I was there, at 50% off - it is a bit shorter than I wanted but that's probably my fault, not hers!

I live in the neighbourhood and have been meaning to pop in as looks lovely from outside. Finally did, such a lovely lovely place with a really pretty little outside conservatory area in the back. I booked in for a manicure and came back later in the day. Loved the therapist, loved the location, im definetly going back.
