It was a little unprofessional as I was left covered in wax after the waxing and got a burned. Other than that it was ok for this little money.

Lovely salon clean and SPACIOUS. Everything was on point and ran like clock work. I decided to have all my treatments done in here as i had initially only booked in for a pedicure. Staff were obliging and willing to fit me in. Loved the buzz and the atmosphere was great and it felt really lively

I would not return to this salon
I found the staff overly busy lacking in skills and the salon very badly ran
I was very disappointed with my extensions and would not recommend

I am a new mum and these ladies made me look like a million bucks! I went in the day before I was due for hospital and got everything done! I came out looking like a star and felt like one too. For all the effort and care shown to me by this team I say thank you.

The manager was very attentive she ran the place like clock work. The staff geniuses, I will be returning very soon ladies. And I am bringing the champagne xxx

Lots of love Estée

I visited Xander and Xaviar to use a 2hr pamper voucher bought online. As per other reviews, the 2hr pamper voucher was complete false advertising because at best what you get is a facial, and nail polish. On arrival the salon looked good and staff were friendly. I had the one therapist who undertook my facial which was good, my skin did look noticeably better when she had finished. But that is all that was good. The massage was barely a massage, lots of rubbing of the tops of my arms but not a massage. My neck and shoulders barely got touched.

I was more hopeful that the manicure and pedicure would be better, I was wrong. I had been warned that it was a mini mani and pedi, but my problems began when I asked if they could remove my shellac nail polish. The therapist really struggled with this form the beginning, especially with the foils. The foils used looking more like kitchen foil which is much stiffer. While my toes soaked (not in water but in acetone, the therapist started on my nails and I have never known anything like it. The therapist attempted to file my nails by forcefully going back and forth with the nail file. I have had enough manicures to know that you should only ever go in one direction with nails. No one had clearly told her. I had to get her to stop and while she attended to my toes, I went over my finger nails myself. Fortunately for me most of the shellac came off without much fuss, but for the ones that remained firm, my poor toe nails were scrapped with the cuticle remover tool and then filed to within an inch of their life. I did attempt to stop the therapist, but they looked so bad due to the way they had been scrapped, I had to let her finish.

I was also told that only clear nail polish was free and I would have to pay extra if I wanted a colour. I choose the free option and got just one coat on my fingers and toes. I did get my eyebrows threaded and this was done by a different lady. While more expensive then you get in other places in South London (£4, other places charge £2), a nice job was done.

I would only recommend Xander and Xavier for a facial and maybe eyebrows. Go elsewhere for any sort of nail treatment.

I called to confirm my appointment and was greeted by a rude receptionist who had told me that my appointment shouldn't have been made because they were fully booked but didn't have my number and aggressively asked for my number when i was asking questions about my appointment.

The wax was the most painful wax I have ever had in my entire life. All the hair was removed but the therapist was extremely rough although not rude like the receptionist. Value you for money is what gives this the star rating.

Had a wash cut and blow dry yesterday and am very pleased with the result, The lady who cut my hair was warm and friendly and asked my opinion rather than just doing what she wanted to do with my hair. Would definitely go there again

The plave is nice and clean but since it is a part of a hairdressers it can get a bit loud so you cannot relax to the nice melody therapist plays. The facial was nice but felt a bit rushed.

Seemed like an all round decent salon, the staff were very friendly. Good value for money using the discount. I would happily go back.

They were really friendly, and I might have been unlucky with the staff member waxing me, but it was not the standard I was expecting. I have quite a lot of bumps and many hairs left in different places. I'd rather pay a little bit more to have it done properly.

Brazilian wax was great, felt completely at ease and Rabia (sorry if i've spelt the name wrong) was brilliant. Really good value for money, will definitely coming back.

The staff was really friendly but failed to provide the service required. My intimate waxing ended up pretty scruffy. It felt like getting a bad haircut.
