I was delighted to be able to be given an appointment on that day as the Salon was very busy. I walked in for an appointment and they managed to fit me in. The Stylsit Rachel was very professional. I asked for a side French pleat and pony curled. This not being a usual request but the Stylist made an excellent job!! I was delighted with my Hair. Thanks Again!

In a top London establishment, Clive would be highly sought after. There is n9 style he doesn't exceed over. You get what you pay for and then some.

Very happy with my cut. Perfect to blend postpartum hair regrowth. I wanted a shorter cut but with Jade's advice, it's a much better result than I could have hoped for. Always a pleasure to get my hair done here.

The staff and premises are really welcoming making the experience relaxing. The stylist worked from a photograph of what I was hoping for and made changes when i asked for subtle defects. The colour is fantastic and thought the process the bleaching process was carefully monitored. A great cut especially after I had received 3 bad hair cuts so they had to work hard to successfully correct this for which I am extremely grateful. Despite the length of time this kind of treatment, bleaching toning and restyling takes the time flew past because of the salons up beat atmosphere. I am going through a lot at the moment so being treated so well with so much kindness made me feel a lot better than when I walked in! Couldn’t recommend the salon any higher 😁

It is honestly the best salon in portobello for men. So attentive, great craft and a genuinely sense of hair style. It’s only a bonus that the gentleman is so well mannered and kind. I’d only go to Shapes again.
