Despite its chic, contemporary look, Michaeljohn remains the ultimate old-school Mayfair salon catering for royalty (Princess Beatrice), fashion editors (yup, Anna Wintour gets her fringe cut here by Charlie Chan), and blonde Hollywood bombshells (from Cameron Diaz to Drew Barrymore). Part of its winning, if not particularly radical, formula is the superlative quality of its cuts (Matt Harrison is great with unruly hair as Time Out testers can testify). Tints, highlights and hair extensions are also catered for, the latter in a specially designed area where all sorts of hair wizardry is performed. Downstairs is the plush beauty room – where the fabulous-sounding 'Doctor Duve's Incredible Anti-Aging Facial' – has been introduced.

This is one of the very few places that I will now trust with my hair, the senior stylist Dimitra is simply fantastic. I originally went to try a hair repairing treatment however they advised me that it would be a waste of money and not make a huge amount of difference on my severely damaged, bleached ends. 

Instead I had a hair cut, condition and blow dry with a few Great lengths extensions attached to help my hair grow out healthily and I love the end result :) one very happy customer and I will definitely be coming back! They have such a great selection of services available, some of which are hard to find in other salons such as healthy vegetable dyes and bolustre restructuring. 


Best haircut I've ever had! Worth every single penny! Stylist was wonderful, staff were friendly. Looks flash but didn't feel at all pretentious. My next appointment is already booked.


booked a Kerastraight at MJ in August 2011 with Adrianne after a consult. I was kept waiting half an hour, then after the treatment told to leave it in for 3 days. After this time washed my hair and it was no straighter then before and really greasy at the roots; had to wash it every day instead of every 3. I spoke to technical director at Kerastraight who said the product should be washed out on the day – so either they didn’t give me the treatment I booked or they did it wrong, and thiis cost me £200! I complained in an email to the salon and a letter to the manager, who didn’t even bother to reply. Bad customer service, bad result, pretentious place, avoid!
