Hi,

I had a really great blow dry by one of their lovely ladies at smooth you they made me feel so welcome and gave me a glass of wine to relax me before my evening out. She listened to every word I asked and gave her honest opinion and urged me to try something a little different.

I was offered a skin consultation complimentary which was really interesting I couldn't believe how thorough she was! The down side was when she printed off the image for me to take home so I can compare my skin after using my new moisturiser!

But I walked out feeling like a movie star!

Thanks ladies!!!

I came across this deal on Wahanda and booked as it was close to my home, I have since been back three times!

Initially I booked in for a cut and colour with a senior stylist I was given Leah who did such a good job with my hair, the highlights lasted a lot longer than normal and she really listened to what I wanted. I decided to go darker for the winter and instead of discouraging me she was explaining all the options that were possible. Since then I went to get my hair up for a wedding which she did a great job with and a further cut and colour. I often go from one deal to the other but Leah has proven a great hairdresser so I will be sticking with her.

I have also had some beauty treatments at this salon, I've had a Murad facial, back massage and the best brazillian I've had to date. Unfortunatley I cannt remember the names of the therapists but they were both superb, I'm now considering having the laser hair removal.

I wouldnt hesitate in recommending this salon well done Smooth You!

In fact I think the Beauty therapists names were Gabi (best waxer) & Tatiana.

Having had my hair highlighted and cut by Smooth You's Principal Stylist in December ready for Christmas & New Year's I wouldn't go anywhere else!! I decided to go for a Full Head of Highlights- going back to my blonde day's :-) and I love the colour!! Will definitely be going back to have it topped up. The salon is beautiful and the facilities amazing. From the second you walk in to when you step out the door you will be treated by the staff with a 5 Star Standard and leave feeling a million dollars!! Thanks to all at Smooth You!! xoxo

I went to Smooth You after I was recommended by a friend. I initially went for a consultation to get hair extensions and was so excited especially when I was told I could have them the next day (even more suprised as the next day was a saturday) this I thought was fantastic as they were very accomdating to my already made plans.
When I went for my appointment I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist who took my coat and offered me a huge range of refreshments (nice touch). The lady who coloured my hair and also the lady who did my extension were both extremely professional and made me feel like a VIP the whole time I was there. The appointment only took 2 and a half hours for a full head colour and extentions and blow dry and I left feeling a million dollars.
Smooth You tick all the boxes and I would highly reccomended them to everyone (and I have been) my hair looks amazing and natural, no one knows I have extensions =).

Great Salon, clean, modern with great massage chairs while you have your hair cut, trendy cups for hot drinks and a cool vibe about it.
My hairdresser was friendly, polite, knowledgable and an overall pleasure !
Would recommend.

Therapist was outstanding and professional, furthermore the machine was really top of the line. I went for a couple sessions to another laser clinic down the road but the pain was just too much, so I decided to do a little research and found this place. Their machine really is amazing and their prices were cheaper than my old place, what a rip-off that was

There is nothing better than a massage. I would recommend both the venue and the therapist. I felt the staff run the extra mile to keep us happy. I would say the value is ok.

I visited for the first time in September and had a lovely experience. I was greeted in reception and had coffee and biscuits whilst I was waiting.


I arrived early, so I was offered a complementary skin scan whilst I waited!! Gosh – I will definatly be booking a facial on my next visit!

Just before my massage a lady called Katie came to give me a tour of the salon. It is pure luxury with chic interior. I then waited in the downstairs waiting area and sat until Agi, my therapist was ready for me.

She was extremely friendly and professional.

I had the most excellent massage and was so relaxed. The soft music and aroma has me falling asleep. Agi was continuallly asking me if everything was ok and If I wanted her to concentrate in different areas of my back.

I throughly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing massage to go to Smooth You and I will not hesitate going back.

Friendly, professional staff, and lovely treatments.

Lauren

Girls, girls, girls! I have just spend 4 hours with the most amazing, talented women ever! Luma.
Luma has years and years of experience in hair extensions and has transformed my locks in to what i can only describe as rapunzel!!

I have spent years wishing that my hair would grow and became an addict to wearing clip in extensions everyday. My friend recomended me to Smooth You and i came to see Luma to find out more about her technique. No glue, no heat, no damage to the hair. Her colour match to my blonde locks was amazing and the hair is so gorgously thick.

I left feeling like a hollywood star!! everyone comments on my hair and they say they can't tell they are extensions at all!!

Money well spent! - Luma i will be your client for life!!

Girls- go and see her now!! :-)

For ages i have always hated waxing and shaving - as most women can imagine. Shaving causes me ingrown hairs, and i can't bear the pain of waxing. I had a consultation with Gabi for laser hair removal - and i doubted her when she told me it would be pain free. I could not be more wrong. this treatment is amazing. the salon uses the Soprano laser - It does not hurt at all! i am having a course of treatments and even just after two sessions the results are amazing. Gabi explains the treatment process amazingly and her client care is brilliant. I have told all my friends and i would recommend everyone to invest in the soprano laser! x

my boyfriend booked me and him for the aromatherapy massage at smooth you and usually im always dissapointed with massages that ive been for as they never seem to make me feel as i want them too and have always felt like ive been rushed out as quick as possible, but i must say our experience at this plush new salon was amazing we recieved cappucino on arrival as we was early for our appt we were then taken down by the therapists ON TIME and was given a mini tour of the salon which i must say was beautiful. My massage lasted for 60 mins and i found the massage so relaxing but also i felt well looked after by my therapist.
I would reccomend this salon to anyone looking to treat themselves they do all kinds of treatments to suit your needs.
i loved my experience here and cant wait to return for my facial next month :) xx

I was walking past one day on my way to the bus when a lady that worked from there gave me a treatment list while I waited. It looked very modern inside but warm and welcoming. I telephoned to make a booking and the man was very helpful over the phone and booked me in for a week later as I had been sunburnt on holidays for a chat about laser hair removal. The hair salon upstairs was busy and bustling but looked friendly and clean.Adi was my therapist and was very helpful and made me feel at ease with the whole laser process. I have had 2 treatments now and am seeing results which Im very pleased with. My only complaint is the last time I was leaving the young lady at the desk didn't remember who I was and had to ask my name twice while booking my next session and didn't remember my coat that had been put away. Other than this I would recommend to anyone wanting friendly professional service for laser in a modern bright facility.

I saw an aussie guy (which doesnt help because I think there are 2). My hair hadn't been touched since it was ruined at another salon on Essex rd, and given the regrowth I had I think it looked pretty good when I walked out. I liked that he made sure he knew what I wanted beofre he started, was entertaining and the scalp massaage was amazing. Glad to have found a friendly local salon rather than having to head to mayfair!

Not usually one for writing reviews but have to say this place is pretty special.
Had an amazing massage and facial - thanks so much Agi, I feel so much better - wish I could lie all day in those ridiculously comfy and wide massage beds! I've been to a fair few salons and this one definitely tops the lot.
You get what you pay for - the whole salon is so lovely and the staff so friendly..Can't wait to go back!
