Stan first cut my hair in 2003, at Chandler Wright in Blackheath.  I'm ridiculously fussy and have long curly hair which can get quite wild.  It's a rare skill to be able to tame it and keep it tamed, but Stan does it brilliantly.  He cuts it right, uses excellent products which eliminate frizz.....and he's a great bloke.  The salon is cool, shabby-chic-ish with its table and books at one end, modern at the 'business end', just the right tunes, a good selection of fine quality refreshments - well done on getting The Ned in chaps ;-)   They also do their bit for charity, with Stan running the London Marathon (and beating me) again this year.  I travel up from deepest South East London, hate the train and tube, but it's all worth it.  And it's not stupidly expensive either.  I wouldn't go anywhere else.

I loved my visit to this salon its very bright and spacious with a great team of people.

Stan cut and blowdried my hair perfectly!

Would recommend it to anyone ! :)

The King's Canary is just great. A cool, understated salon where the focus is on making sure the customer leaves with great hair. Sylvia cut and coloured mine a couple of weeks ago and I am so happy with the result. I had a really thorough consultation first and then a great experience when I returned a few days later. I would really recommend giving it a try. I will definitely be back

Have now had my hair done by both Dan, who managed to give me the big hair look. Not easy with my fine hair! Gavin did a great cut which works when I don't have time to fuss over it. Clare looks after my highlights and is a brilliant conversationalist. Best of all, I had fun and didn't feel intimidated.

I'm new to London, so finding a good place to cut my hair has been a challenge. Well, with a second try I've definitely found it, Kings Canary is exactly what I've been looking for.

I have been coming to Kings canary since it opened earlier this year. I love the laid back, unpretentious atmosphere and the fact that you get a great service and good cut. I have been to Claire several times she always gives a consistently high level of service and I always come away happy. I also like the little extras at this salon which sets it apart from local competition eg: artwork on walls, prosecco in the fridge, music that you want to listen to and even nice hand wash and lotion in toilets! !

I've always been really nervous when getting my hair cut however at Kings Canary I instantly felt at ease! Dan's an amazing hairdresser and offered great advise. Defiantly recommend!!

Emma Oakley

I am one of the fussiest people with my hair... and get very scared about getting it cut. A couple of people from work had visited and Dan had cut their hair, they were still alive!! so I gave it a go. A month ago now, but I absolutely love my hair. I never dry it or style it and I leave it dry naturally, so the cut is very important to me. Dan completely understood this. I will definitely be going back, and have told all my friends. Also the products just smell lovely !!

Emma Staddon

The King's Canary was an all together amazing experience for both myself and my agency clients. They not only supported both us and Movember for charity but gave 12 Future Publishing clients the closest shave I've seen in a long time, leaving them baby-faced and fresh, the products were superb, the barber himself Robbie - so friendly and very talented. Needless to say our clients and staff will definatly be returning for more shaving experiences and a hair cut very soon. The salon is funky and cool but at the same time very relaxing, the staff are great they even supplied us all with wine and beers throughout our time in the salon. I myself had a beautiful wash & curley blowdry by Dan, one of the salon owners. I had several comments throughout the day of how great my hair looked and I will certainly be returning for another blwodry and trim within the next month!

Chris

Great salon with warm welcoming staff. The treatments and products they use there are amazing. Best hair cut I've had in years! Will definitely be going back.

Gemma

The boys have created a great space which is both funky and lived in. I felt every bit at home. Stan gave me a 'feeling sexy' hair cut which was well needed and received as I was 8 months pregnant. Stan is my man when it comes to hair.

Louise cross

Walked in hair looking like Id been draged though a hedge backwards. Dan took control and make me look and feel amazing for my ball that evening. Will be making him my hairdresser even though I'm 70 miles away. Worth the trip.

Penny

This salon is terrific. Very welcoming but not over the top so you feel comfortable and relaxed. Stan does a great job on my particularly difficult hair and I would highly recommend you give this salon a visit. You won't be disappointed.

Charlie Evans

I committed to getting my haircut long term by Stan many years ago because a) he is a great hairdresser and b) he is a top bloke. The Kings Canary is the perfect place to go if you want quality styling and cool, un-pretentious service. They play good tunes and it's also a rather lovely space in which to have you hair chopped!

Gavin has been cutting my hair for several years now and is consistently excellent; always have a really good time too. The Kings Canary is warm, welcoming and always entertaining! Wouldn't go anywhere else. Highly recommended.

Jonny Jobes

Stan is fantastic, I can't recommend him highly enough. You're made to feel relaxed and at home from the moment you enter the salon. I'm a new customer but I already wouldn't consider going elsewhere. I love the down to earth personality of both the salon itself and the staff. 10 out of 10!

Wendy Faulknall

Stan's been cutting my hair now for the last ten years and i always compare a good hairdresser to a good dentist. When you find one you trust it because it is obvious they are experts at their trade - i wouldn't want anyone else touching my hair.

Siân P

I could not even imagine anyone else cutting my hair or going to another Salon - Stan does such a great job every time (hence following him from Blackheath and being with him not too far off 10 years!) Kings Canary offers an all-round perfect and relaxing experience - from the hair-do, drinks, chit-chat, to the overall vibe. You couldn't want for more!

Jo Cronk

The Kings Canary is by far my favourite salon in London. Having spent years going to Charles Worthington and then Percy & Reed, my first visit to The Kings Canary was refreshing and the best blow dry I'd had in a very long time. The salon is chliled, friendly and not at all pretentious. Great job guys!

Jenny

I totally love this place - haven't sampled the champagne but will defo be back for some! Lovely salon, great haircut - definitely highly recommended and have sent many friends there who have all loved Stan's cuts.

Dee

If you want fabulous hair then look no further than Stan Dan the Man at the King's Canary. He's got it all going on in this salon!

Jon Vanner

The Kings Canary has a good atmosphere and great staff. Gavin is a top bloke, does brilliant cuts and has a sense of humour as sharp as his scissors. Go and see for yourself.

Daniel McGowan

I followed Gavin from his previous position in Soho to here in Fitrovia. He's a great guy and has also given me some of the best haircuts I've had. All the staff here are really friendly and make you feel very welcome. It seems like they're always having a laugh with each other but are keen on getting the job done and including the customers - a difficult balance but one that has been achieved here. That reminds me - I'm due a cut myself!

Paul Risebury-Crisp

I recommend this place to all my friends all the time. Having used Gavin for a couple of years now, I totally trust him and have had a run of the most successful haircuts of my life from this guy. It's not cheap but I'm a solid believer you get what you pay for and this is a quality joint.
