My stylist today was Frankie - she is not in the list above to select unfortunately. Frankie did a wonderful job both with my colour and cut - I have a lot of hair and it was time consuming but she was absolutely lovely to talk to and thoroughly professional- I was very impressed. I’m delighted with the results and would definitely get my hair done by her again in future as well as recommend her to others. Thank you Frankie!

I had a fab experience today, Rosie is a dream! Always hesitant when trusting my hair with a new salon but I had the best experience, Rosie knows what she’s doing and gave me exactly what I wanted- a perfect natural blonde balayage. If I wasn’t moving away this would be my go to salon. The salon itself is lovely, the massaging chairs in the shampooing area were bliss! If you’re looking for a new salon, this is your place.

I really enjoyed my first visit to Esente Wimbledon. All the salon staff are friendly and made me feel welcome. Joe gave fantastic advice about my cut and style. He takes a lot of interest and pays attention. He did a wonderful job and added some extra advice about hair care which was very helpful. I found the salon atmosphere calm, relaxing and business-like. I got good explanations about every step of the way. I was happy to rebook for my next cut straightaway and left feeling confident and very pleased!

Becky did my highlights and Darren my cut/ restyle. Both were amazing. The process of Becky packing in the foils is like an amazing robot…incredible speed and efficiency. Then Darren applied the toner to exactly the right timing so no yellow nor purple just perfect blonde. Then he cut my hair with his amazing, newly sharpened Japanese scissors with such confidence in changing my ridiculously neglected hair!
As always I had a great experience and at such short notice. I went in this morning to ask for an appointment and they managed to make room in between others as they saw I was desperate! So grateful, thank you all.
