The staff was friendly and ready for me as soon as I walked in. I tried a new hairstyle and the hairdresser was able to copy the style from a photo I provided while adapting the style somewhat to suit my face shape. I was very happy with the end result and will return there in the future.

I was really pleased with how the cut was going until the hairdresser got to thinning out my fringe. Up to this point she has been really careful to check how I wanted my hair cut and how much length she was going to take off but when she was thinning out my fringe she made a wrong cut and left a hole in the middle of it. It was a real shame as I was please with the rest of the haircut and the rest of the cut was very good.

I bought a Groupon voucher for a cut and conditioning treatment but I was worried to get my hair cut at this salon after reading the previous reviews. However the service and the haircut suprised me. I was taken straight through to have my hair washed after arriving. The conditioning treatment was a lovely peppermint mask that smelled wonderful and made my scalp tingle pleasantly. The hairdresser was a young woman with long blonde hair in a plait (I didnt get her name!) who asked how I wanted my hair cut and triple checked with me before she cut the length, as I was having a lot cut off, which was reassuring. She trimmed my layers and as she was blowdrying each section, she kept checking the length and evened it up as needed. I felt I had a very thorough cut and cant see any split ends, which I would with my usual hairdresser. The blow dry was excellent as I have very curly hair but she made it straight and smooth without using straighteners. I suppose it is fair to say that the women in the salon were not especially welcoming as they didn't smile much, and I was the only customer in there at the time but nobody made small talk, but I do feel that I got the cut I wanted and I would be happy to go back to the same woman, with a bit more trust next time!

Avoid this place! Firstly I was made to wait 20min without any apology, I was moved to have my hair washed. Now in a normal hairdressers you would have a consultation advising the hairdresser what you want but no not this place. Anyway I was left waiting with my head in the sink, ended up getting a neck ache! The lady said she will leave me for a couple of min to let the treatment sink in, the next thing I know she is washing another customers hair and blow dry and left me with the treatment still in my hair!!!! I was left waiting for another 15min before another male hairdresser came to wash my hair. His styling and cutting skills are a lot to be desired! I asked for a simple trim and he couldn't even accomplish that. Came home and there were uneven strands I found at the back. All of the staff are so miserable, unable to raise a smile. On top of that the service received was diabolical as well as making me late. Will definitely not recommend this place!

Very good haircut. Having tried and failed to cut my hair the night before, I went to Lucas the following morning. They were able to fit me in straight away. The lady tidied up my hair and did a really good job. I felt so much happier going away!

Keep away from this place! Absolutely spoiled my hair! The girl called Meleni (or so, - an Italian girl) did not even bother to understand properly what I wanted to be done with my hair. She chopped the whole head randomly - I am in total shock and will go tomorrow to demand a FULL REFUND!!!! Now I need to go to a different hairdresser!
NEVER BUY ANY VOUCHERS FOR AN UNKNOWN TO YOU HAIRDESSER! THIS CAN TURN INTO A TOTAL DISASTER! Also, do not be fooled by anybody's 5-star rating of services: if there is even 1 unsatisfied customer - the probability is very high that you can be the next one!

Even though I was a nightmare customer, turning up late and booking the wrong treatment, Lucas was amazing, they were so accommodating and managed to fit everything in. The hair cut was great and my hair is lovely and shiny from a conditioning treatment. This is the second time I have been to Lucas and on both times it's been amazing.

Maela did a great job on the colour consultation and I am very pleased with the result. Mix of high and lowlights. Maela was patient and I will book again due to her professional and pleasant service. Well done!

If you value your hair, do not go here.

I grew my hair for about a year and looked forward to having it tidied up, at last ! What I did not expect was a hair dresser that did not engage with me or ask me in detail what I wanted before proceeding to hack away at the lot. I now have rat tail ends and an extremely outdated haircut (so embarrassed I will be wearing my hair up!). Why on earth would you cut fine hair into layers that make your hair THINNER? I have been working towards having long lush hair as I struggle with this with fine hair... now I am looking forward for it to grow for about a year, maybe more... depending.

I am now investing in hair extensions that are setting me back £480 in order to rectify this damage.

He hardly spoke to me, I don't even know if he knew much English...

So i told him I wanted more volume, and that i did not want much off the overall length, repeatedly, Once he made his first few cuts I panicked, was so stressful to watch and he could see me sqirming.

On a side note, i asked for a green tea which he gave me in a plastic cup with hair stuck to the side. & the shampoo stinks.

I have NO idea how on earth this salon has 4/5 stars... the women in this place must literally be holding this establishment together.

IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED A VOUCHER, GIVE IT AWAY OR IF YOU ARE BRAVE, LET THE WOMEN GIVE IT A GO. DO NOT TRUST THE MAN WITH THE EARING.

he couldn't look me in the eye. Didn't show me the back of my head... because he knew how bad it was. I walked out and cried, it is that bad. I went to a few Salons down Queensway to get an opinion and they all looked shocked at my new do.

I am here to warn everyone away from this place, I wouldn't want someone experiencing the heart ache that I have today.

This just proves, you can't even go by star ratings on websites..... I am truly gutted. So disappointed and disillusioned at hair dressers. How they can make you feel awful about how you look and be okay with it is beyond me. I am now on a very long waiting game to see my long hair once more..

=( =( =( =(=( =( =( =(=( =( =( =(=( =( =( =(=( =( =( =(=( =( =( =(=( =( =( =(=( =( =( =(=( =( =( =(=( =( =( =(=( =( =( =(=( =( =( =(

BUYER BEWARE.

I had a voucher for a 90 minute package for a facial and massage. Santa rushed and gave me only 65 minutes of my appointment...and when I told her this,she shrugged her shoulders and said that I had received the full treatment!!
The 65 minutes was pretty useless...as when I requested more pressure for the massage,Santa said she wasn't a massage therapist,and couldn't do that...so why sell vouchers offering massage if she can't even perform the treatment adequately! I can simply rub oil on myslef if thats all

I went in to get the chop, something I do every couple of years after growing my hair long and was looking forward to. My hairdresser on the other hand had other ideas and wanted to only take an inch off. I had to fight her tooth and claw to get a decent length cut off, and even then it is now shoulder length, not what I wanted at all. I felt totally undervalued as a customer, she didn't listen to me at all, while asked at the end if I finally wanted it short, it was the end of their hours, I was the only one there, and just wanted to get the hell out by this stage. Am going to go somewhere else in Covent Garden that my roommate recommended to finish it off, hopefully they will be a bit more receptive. No complaints about the blow dry and conditioning treatment, just pretty unhappy with my new haircut.

I was treated very well by staff and was offered a hot beverage. I felt that they really cared about my opinion and the lady kept checking with me and showing how much she would cut off. I have very long hair and find it very hard to trust a stranger with my hair but at this place she cut off the exact amount that i had asked her to, which is very rare in other salons where they cut too much off. I love my hair cut and feel that it is much healthier. The staff also told me to come back for a blow dry with a discount.
