Went there for a shampoo-haircut-blow dry. Was very happy with the service. I also asked for an up-do (extra GBP10) and was pleasantly surprised with the result. Nice and friendly staff. Will go again.

I would thoroughly recommend this place. The staff were very friendly and attentive. Always asking if I wasted another drink (all complimentary - even wine) or anything else. The lady who did my hair (I think her name was Bee) was super attentive and really listened to what I wanted. She did an excellent job with the hair lights and cut and the finished style was exactly what I asked her for. And on top of all that it was ridiculously good value for money. The cheapest place I've been in London and the best. Would definitely go again.

I got hair highlights and hair cut and and found the treatment very okkk. The junior artist who was doing my hair cut was very unsure of how to do it and looked quite nervous.

Really happy with my highlights... Craig was extremely helpful when trying to chose the colours. Exactly what I wanted and great value. Will definitely be back next time!

I've been to Michael Barnes before, but I've never had Craig cut my hair. He was great--I really appreciated the chat we had beforehand about my hair, what it was like, what I was looking for, what I didn't like, etc. That conversation is usually a heavy indicator to me of how good a stylist is, and Craig was very good. The cut was great, just what I wanted, but after leaving and washing my hair myself later, I discovered that it was still a bit too long in places. No worries, though--I called back and Craig was an absolute sweetheart about fitting me in to shorten it a bit more. Overall, very well done, and very professional.

My cut and colour was carried out by the junior stylist, which as far as I can tell was not really the terms and conditions that I bought my voucher on. Neverthless, she was very competant and did a good job on the colour and blowdry, though the cut was nothing special.

I love my time at this salon! They treat you like royalty and bee is amazing! So is the manager and everyone else too! They all help out and give their opinions and my hair has always been exactly how I wanted it! Never disappointed because they take their time and will do it again if there are any issues :-)

The highlights I had over my parting were good and looked natural. The problem I have is that the hair closest to my face did not have bleach on so I have a dark line of hair surrounding my face, this makes the rest of my highlights look un natural. It also means the grey hairs on my temple have not been blended in with my highlights and are still as visible as when I first came in!

Bee is amazing. She transformed my sun-parched curly hair into an impressive but easy to maintain style. Bee listended to my needs and produced superb results. I liked my cut so much, I went back for colour and highlights. Bee is patient and great at making you look good, but still look like you. Thanks Bee!

I had my hair done by Bee and she was absolutely fantastic. She was everything you would expect in a good stylist, she was very knowledgeable but listened and gave great advice. I was very happy when I left the salon and would highly recommend Michael Barnes an Bee as a stylist. She was very friendly and polite and to be fair, the best stylist I have had for a very long time! Thank you Bee.

When I arrived for my appointment I was told that the hairdresser that this voucher applies to DOES NOT CUT SHORT HAIR. However, they were extremely apologetic and rescheduled my appointment for two days later with the manager of the salon (no price increase) and he gave an excellent cut. The staff were friendly, the products used were excellent and they do a wonderful coffee on top of a great cut.
