Helen who was my stylist was very professional & attentetive. The head massage was amazing & she cut my hair exactly how I asked for it & the results are great!

I think Michael Barnes has a really nice atmosphere, good hairdressing and perfect service (complementary drinks etc.). I would definitely recommend it

Fantastic value for central London! I had Tanya who was really friendly, great haircut. The highlights weren't as blonde as I had asked for, but still happy enough with the result.

bought an 'intensive' conditioning treatment with blow dry, but after my hair was washed, the hairdresser simply sprayed something on my hair and left it on for 5 mins. It did not feel like an 'intensive' treatment at all so this part of the purchase was probably pointless. The blow-dry was better and was happy with it.

We Thank you for your comment and we appreciate your feedback. The treatment that was applied on this occasion was an intensive Kerastase treatment, unlike some cream treatments this spray treatment has over 3 times the amount of moisture than others and works in under 5 mins. I would like to apologise if this was not explained to you during the process. Again I would like to thank you for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back to Michael Barnes Hairdressing in the future

Nice friendly atmosphere (felt comfortable, not awkward). Good haircut, although it did take approx. 50 mins for the cut. I visited during my lunch break so was conscious of the time, but it was very thorough and I shouldn't complain about the attention to detail.

I took my mum to get her hair done at this salon and she was most pleased. The hair stylist Murray was very kind and attentive. He offered us both drinks and allowed me to sit and wait until my mum was done. He listened to what mum wanted but gave her good advice too. Highly reccommend having your hair done with him. Great place.

I have to say I was very disappointed with my visit to Michael Barnes. I booked the Cut and Blow Dry with a Principle Stylist. The hairdresser asked me what I wanted however they did not deliver. I now have hair cut at different lengths and also hair on one side an inch and a half longer than the other side. It's all very choppy and does not blend in nicely. This was not what I requested. I asked if he could make some changes to it as I was not happy with the way it was being cut, however he was still not taking much care into cutting it. At that point I gave up and wanted to leave before it got even worse. Only plus is that the place is easy to find and the staff are friendly. I will not be recommending to my friends nor will I return to this salon again.

The staff at Michael Barnes are wonderful. Maurie did my cut and blowdry and I am very happy with the results. The cup of tea is always a plus!

First time visiting Michael Barnes. Tania performed the half-head foils, cut, and finish and did a fabulous job. She worked with three different shades on the highlights and was very thorough throughout. This was excellent value and I plan to go back and have Tania do me again.

My stylist was fantastic. She gave me the EXACT colours I needed for my highlights and explained the whole process so well. Will definitely be going back to her even if I have to pay full price!

It was easy to find the salon and book the appointment. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The treatment was good and the experience was good and i was happy with my haircut overall. I also fell in love with the morrocan oil gift that was given to me. I would reccommend this salon in future.

I had a half head of highlights and cut and am pleased with the outcome. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and it was a pleasant experience spending time at the salon. Would recommend.
