When I moved to London I was looking for a hair salon close to work, I came across Saco and thought I'd give it a try. When calling up to book an appointment I was asked a few questions about what I was looking for and the receptionist suggested JR as my stylist. I think it's honestly the best suggestion anyone has ever made to me. Not only is JR friendly, cool and funny but he's an amazing stylist and cuts my hair like no other. He listens to what I want and never does anything that wouldn't suit me, I'm always flooded with compliments about how great my hair looks every time I've seen him. I now get my hair cut and coloured here and if you are looking for a decent salon and an amazing stylist then Saco is the place and JR is your man!

I have to agree with the reviews below. I have been going to Jamie to colour my hair for many years and have chased him around town from salon to salon because I trust him implicitly with my hair. He doesn't blindly do whatever you ask him, he genuinely advises on what will suit you and what will not. He is incredibly talented and lovely and is always up on the latest colour trends. He's happy to be experimental whilst always being honest. On the one occasion I didn't like what he did, he whipped me straight back in to the next available appointment to fix it for free. Love that man.

I cannot rate Saco hair salon at Charlotte Place highly enough.

I was able to obtain an appointment on a friday afternoon this month with only 24 hours notice - one appointment left.

My hair was overprocessed and I had decided to have an elfin cut. Richard Ashforth cut my hair in a style close to the photo i had provided of what I wanted, the only difference being slight adjustments specifically to suit my face shape. No changes made without attentive consultation first.

My new hairstyle looks ultra chic and expensive, is easy to style at home as expertly cut hair should be.

(Nb: Before finding Saco I had seen terrible reviews for a certain London hairdresser who charges 500£+ per cut. My cut and colour change at excellent Saco with products bought & a treatment- which are all organic not synthetic- cost 300£)

The colour done by Debbie* looks glossy and healthy. Also bespoke to my skintone.

Refreshments were offered often and instead of a biscuit a small chocolate accompanied my drink. Which I preferred. More chocolates were available if needed. The bowl of traditional sweets on the counter may not be super original but was refilled to the brim during my time there. Every detail of Saco is run exactly as it should be. Beverages: tea, coffee, hot chocolate, water. Possibly alcohol but being teetotal I didn't ask.

Since I was there for 3 hours some sustenance was needed.

The colour technician (I believe her name is Debbie- forgive my memory* ) explained the expected colour timeline outcome and all options available (bleached hair growing out as mine is, is more fragile and complicated).

I have received numerous compliments on my hair style. It is short but ultra feminine and effectively disguises some breakage from bleaching. The colour makes my skin look more glowing. I shall definitely be going back.

After first moving to London I first saw Debbie at Saco when she was a student, and was so thrilled with the hair cut and color, that I am now returning as her client. I've been consistently complimented on how well both the various short cuts and blonde tones compliment my facial features and coloring that it is clear Debbie understands technique combined with thoughtful personalization. Though my upcoming wedding is back in the States, I scheduled an appointment in London with Debbie (the week before!) as I trust her completely, and couldn't be happier with the results!

I have been going to Leila for years now and I wouldn't trust anyone else, quite simply she is the best!  I adore her cut & colour - she always makes me feel my most confident.  I think partly because she is a woman herself, Leila knows exactly what it is I need/want to make me (and other women) feel and look my very best.  She is super honest and knows exactly what suits me, even more than I do myself sometimes !  If ever I have gone in with ideas from a friend for example that genuinely wouldn't suit me Leila has kindly but firmly steered me in the right direction (and saved me from a major hair-blip!)  She truly understands hair and what suits people's face/body shape.  I love to see her for a blow-dry before a big event because she does the best POW blow-dry, if only I could do that at home! ;)  And her colour is the best I've ever had.  She's so good and I trust her so much with my hair that i've got my best-friend onto her too!  The whole vibe at Saco salon is friendly, relaxed & fun, whilst still being professional. I honestly couldn't recommend Leila enough.

Sacco is such a find - Tommy is a genius. The best stylists can read minds, and Tommy always knows exactly what kind of cut I'm thinking of, even when I can't quite articulate it. (He's also adorable - everyone there is so cool and friendly and fun, no attitude, just a really great environment - oh and dog friendly!) I've had some of my best haircuts there & I always leave feeling amazing. 

Louise T

Another great cut by Tommy at Saco! Am so glad I've found this relaxed salon and a hairdresser I really trust.

I booked an appointment from reading the reviews in timeout. I had an awful hair colour experience at the salon I went to last! Booked an appointment with the colourist called My-Ha to help me fix my hair nightmare. I arrived for my appointment, the salon had a nice feeling atmosphere to it and I immediately felt this was a good place. During my consultation with My-Ha, I told her what had happened with my hair previously and what I wanted. My-Ha explained to me what had happened to my hair and what she was going to do to fix it. She listened and made me feel at ease. I've come out the salon and today, feeling like a million dollars and my faith back in hairdressers (well just Saco). I can highly recommend Saco and My-Ha for all your hair needs. I've already booked my return visit! Thank you. x

I am shocked with the UN PROFESSIONAL Saco hair has been. I booked an appointment as a demo model for COLOUR and cut. I didn't want the cut but they said they'd only do the colour if I also get a trim so I accepted it. They booked me and after waiting for an hour they asked me to come back the next day cos they were overbooked. So they made me comeback the next day and after getting my hair cut they told me they can't do my colour, when I tried t get an appointment to do my colour (trying to do everything on the same day) they told me they won't do colour modelling until mid January (we are in mid october!!!!!) I told them that the only reason I agreed to cut my hair was because I was gonna her my colour changed. Everyone played fool, the guy who cut my hair disappeared not saying a thing and the girl who does the colour was really nasty. I left that place with a hair cut that I didn't want in first place and with the same hair colour. What they did is shameful and shows how poorly professional they are. They should have speak the truth upfront. I don't recommend this place at all, not unless you wanna leave the place fuming and with a feeling of have been used

I have been going to Layla for about 4 years now and I would not go anywhere else. She is the first hair dresser who I have felt is not put off by curly hair and doesn't try to straighten it. She is also the first hair dresser I have had who seems able to do more than one style so I don't feel I have to move hair dressers when I want a change of style. I can tell her what I am looking for and she is able to translate it into something that looks great. She is also very charming and approachable into the bargain.

Leslie L

I've been to a few salons in London in the past few years, but no where as great as Saco. I went from the recommendation of my friend who gets her colour done by My-Ha, and was told that I would be thoroughly looked after. And without a doubt, not only did My-Ha coloured my hair brilliantly, but was also great with the consultation and what would suit me better. She was honest and did a great job. The salon environment was lovely and not at all felt pretentious and too hairdressy. I definitely will be coming back and making Saco my 'GO TO' salon for ALL my hair needs. Definitely recommend!

Farida Z

I've spent the past year searching for the perfect hairdresser in London. Sure, they all cut hair, but most of them have the charisma of a spoon and that ruins the entire experience. And then I found Tommy! I have really long, thick hair, and felt completely at ease around this marvellous stylist. He listened to every word, and cut my hair with a refreshing balance of professionalism and friendliness. He's super charming, and understands what great hair means to a woman. 


As for the salon, Saco has a calm, relaxed feel to it. Think high-end salon meets a date with your best friend in a kooky cafe. A gem just around the corner from Goodge Street. 


As for Tommy, for as long as he continues cutting hair, this barnet ain't going anywhere else.

As a French girl new to London, I was so nervous about choosing a salon. I hunted around for details on the web and found the glowing reviews of Saco and can only agree with them ! I needed a new hair cut and explained what I wanted : the result was exactly the look I had imagined and even better ! I've gone there for 1 year and would not think to change.

The staff is very friendly and professional and for the hair cut, the best is Tommy ! He is very patient (I have each time an in depth consultation) and I always go away feeling and looking amazing !

gina t

I have my hair coloured by Jamie having followed him from another salon, he is very clever with colour and listens to you as a customer and very thorough, your colour will last and the products are great, if you use the shampoo and conditioner afterwards it seems to prolong the colour.


All the staff at the salon are very welcoming and Enrica gave me a great wash and dry, very professional 


You should try it  

Chikay L

Without a doubt the best salon in London. I made the unfortunate mistake of hair modelling for another salon and they gave me an AWFUL haircut plus colour which ruined my hair completely.


JR did an incredible job fixing the cut and I point blank refuse to get it cut by anyone else. He listens to what you want but also puts in his professional opinion to help you find the perfect medium. If what you've got in mind won't suit you, he'll tell you and i always apreciate his professionalism.


I regularly get my hair coloured by Sam and it's by no means an easy job. My natural hair is thick and black and she's managed to get it from pink to purple to now blue. She's incredibly talented and patient even through my 6 hour colouring sessions! I'd happily recommend her to everyone.

The service is always spot on and all the staff are very helpful and friendly. If you're debating whether to give this salon a try, definitely take the plunge. You won't regret it.

I have already written a review in praise of Tommy, a talented stylist I am delighted to have found, but my original review disappeared when I tried to edit with another thank you, so this is a re-write! Tommy has cut my short hair several times now and each time I am thrilled with the results. I also enjoy his calm and gentle energy, and feel really lucky to have found him! 


Recently, after a bit of a home colour + too much sun disaster I decided to ask advice at Saco and spoke with Jamie, who has now coloured my hair a couple of times. And I have another success story! Jamie has created exactly the right natural tone for my hair and also given excellent advice on products, which greatly helps prolong the colour. 


So a big THANK YOU to both Tommy and Jamie, and all the friendly team at Saco. I really enjoy my visits and always feel great when I leave!

I have been going to Jamie, the hair colourist at Saco, for years because he is quite simply the best.  

I am now in my forties and have grey hair growing alongside my natural blond/brown-ish hair.  Jamie gives me blond highlights that complement my skin colour and look totally natural which is perfect.  I look younger and, as the grey grows back in, I can leave the roots touch-up for a few months as the colours Jamie uses fit in with my natural colour so the roots growing in don't look bad/too noticeably different.  Marvellous!  Highly recommend.

Catherine F

Since going to SACO and having my hair cut by Patriciza,who is the best precision stylist I have ever been to in London (I have been to loads over the years!!), I have had lots of compliments about my hair. I have extremely fine/straight hair which a lot of stylists think can be cut in 15 minutes which is really frustrating however Patrizia really takes time with the cut and the result is excellent. Hair styling is treated as an art here not just a quick cut............ So if you fancy a change, I suggest you give SACO a go. Sam also did a great job with my colour so I might get braver and go brighter next time..........Thanks P & S

Anna-Marie S

Jamie at Saco is without doubt the best colourist in London. I have been going to him for years and would not trust anyone else with my hair colour! I have long battled against ever increasing grey roots and since knowing Jamie he has restored my hair, leaving me every time with glorious, natural and glossy chestnut locks.Simply the best!

Marie S

Wow, I am amazed at what Jamie and Tommy have managed to do to my hair, they have done a fantabulous job of what could only be described as an over bleached, dry and brittle mess...I left the salon yesterday after my very first visit to Saco with an amazing cut and colour, my hair feels and looks fantastic, thanks guys!


Tommy also done an amazing job cutting my Daughter's extremely unruly curly hair, she now has beautiful silky looking and tamed curly locks, we will both definitely be returning. 

Shabaneh R

I always get my hair cut by Tommy! Never ever had a hairdresser where there can actually be silences that aren't awkward. His warm and caring personality puts me at ease and makes me feel comfortable and well looked after whilst he styles my hair to perfection at every visit. 10/10. Go. Get your hair cut with him now!!

Janet M

Tommy cut my hair for the second time - all I can say,  he is an incredi

ble cutter, finally found the best stylist for my fine hair - amazing!!

Frances M

I experienced Saco for the first time this week after some googling and was thoroughly impressed! I knew instantly I was in capable and talented hands with Jamie and Tommy who revived my hair, and I left Saco feeling like I just stepped out of a salon!! I couldn't recommend it enough, thank you guys for working wonders!

Alex B

I visit Saco almost every week, I work in the area and I am often nipping in either to see Sam for some highlights, or maybe a Peach / Rose tint if I'm feeling restless! Then I see JR for my haircut, whether it's a messy fringe, a trim or a restyle he knows what I'm getting at! I would recommend these lot to anyone and have done a few times, all of which are now regulars there too! 

Maria B

I have to say, I'm the kind of person who is very picky about my hair and going to hairdressers is always a bit of stress for me. I chose Saco as I was intrigued by Time Out review - that personal approach was exactly what I was looking for. From the first minutes I felt like I've been going to this salon for a long time, very friendly and somehow unique atmosphere! If any worries were still present after a warm welcome, those completely vanished while JR was cutting my hair. He not only gave some professional advises, a great cut that suits my face, but also was very fun to talk to ( that was the end of a long working day I mind you!)

Also, for such a great experience and being a high-end salon the prices are more than reasonable.

No doubt I'm coming back to Saco for a fresh cut next time.


You will definitely miss out, if you don't try Saco!

I first came across Saco through a starter deal, four years ago. One session with the lovely Patrizia had me converted. Her attention to detail is impressive. Patrizia introduced me to keratin blow dry treatments, which has saved me much straightening angst. I now go to Tommy Taylor for cuts. Tommy takes equal pride in his work, combining mastery of the scissors with an instinct for creating whatever 'look' I'm vaguely trying to convey. Trips to Saco are always an uplifting experience and the atmosphere is professional but fun and unhurried. Having my hair washed on a recent visit by the salon's founder, Richard Ashforth, confirmed for me that this salon really does put its clients first. I would and do always recommend Saco to friends. Keep up the good work!

paula

I discovered Saco when my long time colourist - Jamie - moved there. Jamie is a fab as ever and I never hesitate to put my hair in his hands. A great new discovery at Saco is Patrizia. Patrizia has cut my hair twice now and both times I have been impressed with her attention to detail that results in a fantastic haircut. Both Jamie and Patrizia generously listen to and take on board my amateur mutterings about face shape and colour and somehow translate that into something that far exceeds what I could imagine.

Overall I really like the laidback, low key sensibility of Saco.

anna r

Discovered this place through here Time out, and It didn't disappoint. i had my hair cut by Max, he was really nice i was a little unsure about what i wanted done before , but max was very helpful with his suggestions and checked i was happy with idea before and during the cut , Fantastic service ,very welcoming and nice looking salon too. over all very please with the experience

Some haphazard Googling led me to Saco a few weeks ago, and I'm so glad: I went in with strange grown-out highlights and left with hands down the best hair I've ever had. Colourist Jamie worked on me once at his previous salon, and he's both a brilliant, laid-back guy and a totally safe pair of hands. I genuinely like his company, and appreciate that I can both let him loose to do whatever he knows will work, but also trust him to listen to what I'm asking for. As for the cut: stylist Patrizia was warm and attentive, and put an awe-inspiring amount of time and energy into reshaping my layers - she cut once wet, and then all over again dry to make the most of the new colour's light and shade. It was such a masterclass to watch that another stylist congratulated her at the end (whereupon I felt like clapping and throwing roses). If I had one stupidly first-world complaint: the massage at the end of my shampoo was a bit lopsided (one side of my scalp felt amazing and the other a little resentful!) but the trainee who looked after me was lovely too, so I should shut up. Keep it up, guys - and see you soon.  


TAZ S

Wonderful experience! I am usually very particular about my hair and am never fully satisfied with the final product from most hair dressers - but the stylists at Sacco were absolutely wonderful! The overall experience was very pleasant - wonderful people, conversation, and top notch job with my hair. Literally came in with a picture and they hit it right on. Definitely recommend this! 

Sarah

A friend recommended Saco as i work nearby so thought I would give it a go. I am usually very fussy with my hair and have trouble with new hairdressers but Saco was brilliant! Great atmosphere in the salon and my stylist Patrizia was amazing! I was very happy with her customer service and my hair! She did exactly what i asked which doesn't happen often and made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely go to her again and tell my friends too. Massive thumbs up!

FieldingKaren

Go and see Tommy Taylor - he's an excellent hairdresser - totally understands my hair texture and what I want to achieve. In this case, growing my hair as long as possible within regular chopping sessions to remove old colour - recommends the right products too. When Tommy hasn't been there, the rest of the team are excellent with their advice and are very approachable - you would hope right? :-) Tommy is now 'my go-to' hairdresser.

Ellie p

My time at saco salon was amazing I felt so comfortable. my experience helped with Tommy (Thomas) Taylor for giving me an awesome haircut. he's never disappointed me in all the years I've know him. He's always been a fantastic hairdresser ad takes so much pride in his work. he truly is amazing and he's defiantly going far in life! love him so much and ill be seeing him very soon for my next new style. I recommend him to anyone and everyone!

Thanks a lot for having me at the salon. its beautiful and I will be returning very soon for my summer hair style x

Adreena_Winters

I have been to see Tommy at Saco a couple of times now. The salon it's self is lovely, I am always well looked after, but in a non fussy laid back kind of way, which is great.

Tommy has amazing talent. His attention to detail is incredible, and he makes it all seem so effortless.

It's such a refreshing change to have some genuine engaging chat as he snips away at my hair.

I always leave with a totally manageable gorgeous hair cut, and the whole experience leaves me feeling super happy.

Charlie G

As everyone can appreciate finding a great hair colourist in London is difficult, and when you have one you would follow them anywhere. And thats exactly what I have done, followed Jaime to Saco

Jaime always creates what you have asked for & the colours are always natural and flattering

Highly recommend him

Anna W

Initially I went to Saco because I simply could not imagine having anyone else than Jamie color my hair. I have dealt with many colorists in the past and he is by far the best - he is highly competent and he really listens, an all too rare quality. To top it up, he's also a very nice person!

Turns out, in addition to the amazing color, the whole experience was great: nice, considerate staff, quiet and intimate atmosphere, interesting conversations, all in all a lot of fun!

If you're looking for stunning hair and a lovely 3 hours long experience, I highly recommend Saco in general and Jamie in particular!

Zoe H

Colourist Jamie is fantastic. He has coloured my hair for over ten years now and he has recently moved to Saco!  The colour is always perfect.  Highly recommend!

Amanda .

 By far the best salon I have ever been to! I had a terrible experience at another salon and they really messed up my colour BIG TIME! I saw Sam at Saco a couple weeks ago and she has honestly changed my life! I can now appreciate what a proper set of foils SHOULD look like. 


I have what I always thought was just a straight forward half head of 'normal' blonde highlights. Most of my experiences in salons, the consultation process seemed to last about 2 seconds, leading me to believe that my colour must be quite easy. Sam's knowledge of colour made me see how important it is to have the correct shade of blonde (which I might add now know is endless) not only to suit my skin tone but also to suit me and what I wanted it to look like. 


I have found a new colourist for life and would recommend her to any one who is in search for the PERFECT colour, it also helps how lovely and warm she is to all her clients.

Jo

Finally a hairdressers that know what they're doing with my hair! JR is without a doubt one of the most talented stylists I've been to, really taking the time to work out exactly what I want and what will work for my hair rather than some w*nky cut that will look good for 5 minutes after I've left the salon. Would highly recommend him and Saco. 

Mx

Saco came recommended to me and I have definitely not been disappointed by the stylist tommy. He takes time and thought over my hair and each time I'm surprised by what he can do with my very short locks! Fab hairdresser and a really friendly group of staff...would def recommend.

MD

Finally I've found someone who can actually colour my hair with the same consistency each time! Jamie delivers great hair color every time. Ive just started using the salon and always leave feeling relaxed and happy with my colour and blow dry.

Rachael

My first time at Saco but definitely not my last. A warm welcome, a relaxing atmosphere and a fabulous hair cut. JR is brilliant - I put my trust in his judgement and he gave me a cut that looks funky and suits me down to the ground. I love it and couldn't be any happier.

sally

I had the most pleasurable hair experience from two of the nicest and talented hairdressers. they both chatted with me with none of the usual hairdresser talk about the weather or holidays.and as for the hair I am so pleased with the results Jamie one of saco's hair colourists has transformed my grey hair into such an amazing colour and Brett has cut it so nicely he took so much time with it I couldn't praise the two of them enough

johny pach

I have been getting my hair trimmed and styled at Saco for over a year now!. My hairdresser is the very talented and good friend tommy taylor. Tommy always cuts my hair to perfection, his effortless cutting technique is special and he always comes up with the goods. Aside from Tommy, the staff are extremely friendly, I love the head massages and the energetic atmosphere in Saco makes you feel part of the family. I am looking forward to many more saco hair experiences in the future!

philipha

I have been coming to Jamie for several years and I would be lost without him he has never failed to deliver with his hair colouring skills and always made me so happy every time I leave the salon with a smile on my face

Petra

Hair colourist Jamie, having recently moved to Saco, takes great care in his work and he delivers what you want. I’ve been a client of his for a couple of years now and because he does a really good job, I followed him to the new place. His assistant there is Debbie, a lovely Irish girl, who does a fantastic blow-dry. I have shoulder-length fine hair, and she manages to bring real volume and swing to it. You leave the salon feeling classy.

sean

Been getting my hair cut by Tommy for the last 3 or 4 year now. I have complete trust in him and have followed him across London from his previous salons. Saco London has a relaxed and none pretentious feel to it (as mentioned above) which seems to be why Tommy is so happy there. As long as Tommy is here it will remain the best salon in town.
