I had my hair cut and coloured today by Louise. As usual it was an amazing experience for me. The safety procedures in place were excellent and I felt 100% safe. A great visit for me.

Had a great experience getting my hair done again today, after 12 weeks of not being able to!
The salon setup, under current circumstances, made me feel so comfortable and safe.
As per usual Lizzie was awesome and catered for my post lockdown request and my hair looks great. I’m so pleased with it.

I was so anxious about going back to the salon due to COVID- however the guidelines they send out put my mind at ease- I explained my feelings before arriving and was reassured. All the girls in the salon have kept the upmost professionalism and I was made to feel at complete ease, nothing was too much trouble and I left feeling so very relaxed and comfortable

I have been going to raw for YEARS (even when I’ve moved around I’d still travel back) and have never been disappointed with any stylist I’ve had. It’s a lovely environment and I really appreciate their contribution to sustainability and the environment. Visited after reopening due to COVID and it still had a lovely atmosphere as well as feeling safe. My blonde is always the exact shade I want, which is never an easy task!

I've been going to Emily at Raw for over 3 years, and I've never been to the same stylist more than two or three tines before in my life. I love Raw, I love the salon, the ladies treat you like royalty with lattes, mocktails and prosecco, it's a lovely treat when getting your hair done! Emily is amazing with foils, I get blonde highlights and I never have to worry about what it's going to look like as I know it'll look great - I only wish I could replicate it at home!

The basin room was beautiful and very relaxing. I was told every step of the way what was being used on my hair and why ☺️ My stylist knew 100% what I was asking for and the result was spot on..

Worst hair salon I've been to do far. The hair wash like getting a Turkish massage, so rough, I lost do much of hair in the wash. Also the chemicals was not properly rinsed out as a result my scalp is now very sore. ***** doesn't know the basics of hair colour to say the least

Bad haircut

I had the most terrible haircut I have ever had! The stylist I used regularly was not available and I was told the other one was just as good. She ruined my hair and afterwards though my stylist tried to make it look a bit better, but the damage was done! My hair takes a very long time to grow and I am so unhappy everyday when I look at my hair.

I love this hair salon , I think it’s excellent customer service , they are friendly , helpful and make you feel welcome .
I took a picture of the colour I wanted and Emily done a fantastic job , I am really really pleased with the outcome and is exactly what I wanted . If you are unsure about cut/colour always take a picture in as there could be a slight misunderstanding between the client and hairdresser , after all they are not mind readers .
The staff in this salon listen and want to please the customer and they do a fantastic 40%off on Tuesdays. .
The staff work extremely hard and deserve a good review .

Unprofessional service

Samuel Arundell

Went for a gents haircut and paid £38.50... the cut lacked any technical ability. The stylist failed to blend the lengths leaving weird clumbs of hair around the ears. When I went to the salon to complain, I was met with weak apologies with blame being apportioned to me... apparently the stylist has worked there for ten years. I was refused a refund. Told I was aggressive. So I went to crayford raw (now split from raw, wonder why?!) and had it fixed for £10... it is no wonder the raw business is breaking up with this lack of professionalism and customer care. The owner told me the manager was left in tears, I would suggest there is clearly a competency issue at raw dartford. I would also state, a non refund policy in illegal under the supply of goods or services Act. Avoid if you value your hair.
