I felt traumatised by the treatment which I received from a Tutor called Jorge /George as he was rude & dismissive of my request therefore I ended up with a dreadful hairstyle & a ball of frizz. The young Japanese Lady who carried out his incompetent instructions did exactly what she was told very accurately. She washed my hair really gently & cut it well but the style which I requested was ignored by the INSTRUCTOR & I ended up with one thick layer & a weird angular shape despite being promised a "classic" rounded style suitable for my age & job. I asked for a straight blow dry but was told that HE wanted it to be dried by a diffuser - which kept falling apart - which resulted in my almost bursting into tears as I looked as if I was being entered into "Crufts" !!!. The young girl didn't speak English & she thought that it was her work which I was unhappy with so she started crying. Jorge was very dismissive of my distress & started spouting all sorts of nonsense & roughly brushed my hair out . I said that I would rather leave than have him treat me so roughly at which point he told me to go!!!. The hero of the day was the polite Alexandre who blow dried my hair straight with the help of the young girl & they did a lovely job. I gave her a £15 tip as I felt so sorry for her & she had worked so hard. I would NOT recommend this particular instructor but all the other Models appeared to have a beautiful cut & blow dry. It did take over 3 hours but that was NOT an issue.

Had the best hair cut I've ever had here! decided to cut my long locks off for the summer and such a good decision, very friendly, they washed my hair and took a long time to work out exactly what I wanted, will definitely be coming again.


I have been going here for some time now. Usually I get a great haircut, though it can take hours. The nerve wracking bit is seeing who the tutor is. Obviously, some are more in tune than others. There is one woman who despite calling them 'lovely' seems to hate clients, no make that seems to hate everyone, and to have a permanent bad smell under her nose. I heave a sigh of relief when she is not in charge.
