I booked a last minute file and polish for £9 in the morning, for a 3pm appointment. I was taken downstairs despite arriving a few minutes early, which was great. It was downhill from there. The room had boxes piled on the massage table, which the beautician lifted off. The nail table remained in the corner and the beautician sat on one side of the massage table with me on the other, without changing the paper from before so there was hair and fluff from the bottom of the boxes all over the bed.

The nail varnishes, despite being OPI or Essie, were appalling quality. They had all separated and were thick and gloopy. I would bin them, or at least invest in some thinner, if they were mine. The beautician went upstairs to get a nail file, which I assumed meant it was new, but after filing my nails she popped it back into the cupboard, presumably for the next customer. I expect products that cannot be sanitised to be binned. The highlight was that after filing the first nail she checked that the shape/length was acceptable.

Base coat + 2 layers of disgustingly thick polish + top coat and then she said "they'll be wet for an hour so don't touch them." Wet for an hour? I would expect touch dry within 10 minutes with a fast topcoat from a salon. I wouldn't know how long they needed, because once I stepped outside I could see air bubbles in the polish as well as pieces of hair between the topcoat and the colour.

I was home within half an hour and took it off, and it wiped off almost without the need for remover. Underneath my nails were split/peeling, which they were not before. I emailed the salon that evening, and have held off from posting my review in the hope that they would reply. That was 9 working days ago. A total waste of time and money - I do a better job myself, with better quality products.

Can't recommend this venue enough - my haircut is exactly what I want each time I go and am always well looked after. The cake on arrival was a nice touch too!

Really easy to get to, open late so one can nip in after work. Waxing efficient and as good as expected.

I've struggled to find a hairdressers I trust and like since I moved to London but that might not be a problem for much longer. Jenn at Willow was fantastic. I'm really pleased with my colour & cut and will definitely be coming back in the future. By the by but I absolutely loved the artwork there as well.

Really great wax! Made sure she got all the hair by using two different types of wax and plucking! Good thorough job! The therapist was really friendly and chatty which made it an enjoyable experience! And when I had to reschedule last minute due to work they were really understanding and moved my appointment even though I'd already paid and they could've just refused and kept the money!! will 100% be going back

Nikki was very thorough with the waxing. Would certainly go back again as price was extremely reasonable and service was great

Efficient, very friendly service. Listened to my hair woes, gave advice and a great cut. Shampoo was very long and luxurious. Will visit again.

My regular waxing salon - Nik always does a fantastic, painless job. Salon is clean, well equipped and the wax is super quick. 25 minutes at the most. They use a mixture of hot wax and normal wax strips which is the fastest, most effective way to get a perfect Hollywood.

Was offered a drink as soon as I arrived. Appointment started a couple of minutes late. Was very pleased with the haircut.

I had a hollywood wax last week at this place. This girl said she had been doing this for 10 years, but her technique I didn't agree with. She was using hot wax 20% and the remainder strip wax, which I absolutely hate because that's what creates ingrowns. Her technique also involved going over the same area so many times that I felt 8 layers of skin come off with the wax. I wasn't too pleased with the result, especially since whatever wax was used, was so sticky that my butt cheeks stuck together. She did the job very poorly and quite frankly I couldn't wait to get out of there. I wouldn't recommend, sorry.

Clean and nice place but a bit overpriced. Staff is nice. Wish they had more colour to choose. Polish cracks afyer a few days but that is quite normal for me

I was satisfied with the overall wax and the beautician was very thorough. She used a combination of hot wax and strip wax. The wax was a bit hot and burnt me a little bit, so it was sore, but after a couple of days this died down and I was left with very few ingrown hairs.

Jenn was really good, listening to what I wanted for my haircut. I'm really happy with the finish and will definitely be going back again.

Well done, clean and professional - just a little more painful than usually. Might be me, might be the lady who did the wax, I guess it's shared reasons

I can't recommend Nikki, my therapist and Willow Hair and Beauty enough! The treatment was thorough, the service friendly and the ambience relaxing

As usual Nikki provided fantastic service. She is super friendly and extremely thorough with the treatment. The ambience in the salon is relaxing and one of a standard much higher than the price you pay for the treatment. I would highly recommend.
