I had a basic haircut done at McCarthy. The hairdresser was really friendly and helpful, and my haircut just what I wanted. Good value for money!

I had a haircut and blow dry here, and was simply one of the best haircut treatments I've had. I'm definitely coming back.

The salon was really great and staff very friendly. There was a head massage thrown in with the hair wash. The stylist gave good advice on what kind of cut I shoukd go for. The finish of the cut wasn't that grea though, I'm still finding stray long bits of hair!

Great salon, great stylist. Sorted my hair out after a terrible haircut. The cut was just what my hair needed. Will definitely return again. Thanks

Lovely place but I am not sure i actually had my hair cut! I asked to keep the length but make sure that all the ratty ends were tidied and cut with more layers. However the man who was cutting my hair seemed very nervous and quite distracted (he took a phone call whilst doing my hair). At the end of the cut I tried to explain that I wanted more cut from the front but he became quite confrontational telling me “well this is what you asked for”. I became very uncomfortable as everyone seemed to be listening so I backed down and left the salon with a great blow-dry but no cut. I would return only because all the other hairdressers seemed great and had good rapport with their clients but I would specifically request to not have the same person again as it was a complete waste of money!

This is an awful awful place!!! I went and the lady at the door said that they gave my appointment to somebody else, as wahanda cancelled it. I told them that is not possible and showed a confirmation email and a reminder message. She then, showed me something that they received from wahanda with a DIFFERENT order number. I explain this must be for a different customer, but she wouldn't listen. She had incredibly rude attitude and was shouting at me. I said that I am happy to wait for half an hour until they are free, she just asked me to leave. I have never been treated worse in my life. Then of course, I wrote an email complaining to Wahanda and the owner of the salon, it became clear that I was right and I did have an appointment for which I was fully charged; so then the owner told me she will give me a complementary facial as a way to apologise but when I replied asking for a date to go, 1 month later I am still waiting for a reply from her!!! Don't waste your time going there; you will be treated badly, yelled at, asked to leave, then you will be also lied at and promised an empty apology.

My hair stylist was lovely, we had a little chat but he left me to enjoy my haircut in peace. He took a lot of care with my hair and was very gentle. Great haircut. The salon wasn't too loud and shiny either.

Great service as always, lovely salon and really convenient opening hours. Stylist gave me suggestions on other treatments that I could have without being pushy.

When I go to the hairdressers I hope to be treated with a special service, but customer service was lazy and indiscrete at this salon. I only went in for a wash, cut and blow dry and the cut was adequate but the blow dry was not my style at all - clearly as I had entered the salon with straight hair and was given a puffed up blow dry. Very little attention was given to me the customer, and hairdresser was more concerned with what else was going on in the salon.
