Atherton Cox
Think of Atherton Cox as the Jil Sander of hairdressers: beautiful cuts delivered without fuss. It was founded nearly a decade ago by Lisa Atherton and Paul Cox, and the team is now nearly 40-strong, catering predominantly for glamorous thirtysomething Marylebone professionals and yummy mummies. Thanks to Men’s Hairdresser of the Year award-winner Desmond Murray, who charges £116 for a ‘re-design’, it’s a go-to for a brilliant gents’ cut too. If you’re after a lengthening, rather than a shortening, service, look to the salon’s hair extensions. Under the directorship of Andrew Bidwell, you’ll get natural-looking tresses without a hint of Wag. Complete the red-carpet look with some seriously luxurious eyelash extensions by Daxita Veghela (£160).

I had the worst bikini wax EVER here and won't be returning can't believe a place like this would offer such a poor beauty service clearly they shouldn't be doing that! Am sure good for hair but please people don't make the mistake I did of having a beauty treatment!

Fabulous hair salon - great atmosphere. I had a cut and highlights by Nina. She was amazing! My hair looks a million dollars. Nina is a STAR. I recommend her highly.

Had the best cut I've had in years here the other day. The stylist, Chloe, was brilliant - she understood exactly what i was after, explained where i'd been going wrong in trying to achieve it, and was professional and friendly throughout. 2 weeks later I'm still chuffed to bits. Will definitely be back.

Having coarse and unmanaging hair I was recommended by a colleague to have a Brazilian blow dry in the believe it would help me to manage my untaimed disaster of a head of hair. After exhaustive research I came across a salon in Marylebone, AthertonCox, that claimed to specialise in the above treatment. I was recomended to a guy called Mick of which I had a consultation with (gratis). Luckily it turns out that this guy is the education director for a company called 'Keratin Revolution'. I must admit i wasn't quite sure if he was a scientist or a hairdresser! By the end of the consultation I fully understood and also felt I could do the treatment myself. The price tag was hefty but felt secure in paying this as I would be in the hands of a true professional. Several weeks later I decided to take the plunge and tame my unruly locks. On entering the salon I was greeted in an amicable fashion. Mick appeared grinning and full of life as I first experienced him. He personally took my jacket and escorted me to his work station and then reiterated the same information he had originally relayed on our initial consultation. He personally dealt with every aspect of the treatment ( of which there were many) . Two and half hours later I have the silky, frizz free hair that I always dreamed of. Three months on my hair still looks fabulous, although I have to constantly return to the salon to buy the required aftercare shampoo and conditioner. I highly recommend this treatment to anyone that desires salon finish results at home. thanks to Mick and his assistant Barbara( I think his real name is Tom), you are a star.

This was the worst experience I have ever had at a hairdressers. I was booked in for hair colour and then a haircut with one of the owners. I was really looking forward to this day. The colour technician was polite and friendly hence the rating for staff. However, I arrived at 1pm and only had the colour washed out at 2.30pm. There was a lot of waiting around and then more waiting as the technician tried to find someone to wash the colour out. This was happening to other customers too. The juniors made faces at each other when asked to wash hair. The floor areas were dirty with tissues/cotton wool/used foils on the floor and no one wanting to pick them up - just walking around them. My glass of water was given to me with hair in it. I knew whilst I was having my hair washed that the junior was trying to waste time because the owner was not ready. My head was on the sink so long the pain travelled down my neck and my arms and my hands were tingling with numbness. I was then asked to wait for the owner, who was going to be '2 minutes'. After lots more waiting and then seeing a another lady leave with wet hair - I realised that no one really cared about customer service. I got up to leave at 3.40pm without an apology from anyone, the owner didn't bother to come over. I paid for the colour but now feel ripped off as colour normally includes the cost of a blow dry which I did not have.

Worth a go. Just had my first visit and am going back. I walked out feeling like a king having got the cut I wanted.
