Sheer Bliss

Shopping Kingsland
It doesn’t look like much at all from the outside – or the inside, for that matter – but family-run Sheer Bliss is a real beaut for treatments in Dalston. Waxes are great value (£18 for a full Brazilian) and threading is a steal at £7 for eyebrows.

Avoid at all costs. I asked for lash extensions and she continuously got glue in my eye throughout the procedure. The pain was extreme, and tears were streaming, and she wouldn't stop. I sat through the excruciating pain and the end result was disastrous, it looked so incredibly bad, extremely unnatural and badly applied. I've had eyelash extensions done before from different places, good and bad. But i never realised it was possible for it to look this bad!!!! I asked for it to be removed as it looked hideous,  and they still charged me the full price. My eyes were red, watery and puffy for a wedding I was bridesmaid for the next day. 

Zero star if I could.

Absolutely rubbish. The reception staff don't know what they are doing, even booked me in with the wrong person for my eyebrow shape and tint. I gave the current lady a chance and she had no idea what she was doing, she made me look ridiculous. I had to tell her what to do to make my eyebrows suit me!! Pretty much burnt my eyes too, it felt like she had taken them off completely so much so that i had to check when she wasn't looking! 

We said medium brown and they were almost black, covering my face - did that really look good lady ?! 

I only have slim brown eyebrows - exactly how they were when I walked in. I only wanted them looking more professional! 

I nearly didnt pay and I wish i hadnt but she removed the dark colour, lightened and sorted them out > > how i said she should do it ! 

I got home and had to shape them myself! 

They faded within a week and i am continuing to do them myself again! 

To end the bad experience, i can now see missing bits where they were not supposed to touch !! 

Do not go to these retarded amateurs!!!

 DO NOT GO THERE FOR EYEBROWS WAXING ! they took the skin off my eyes lids and assured me it was only a red reaction to waxing and I was very sensitive !!!

Mistakes can happen but recognize it and accept your responsibility !

I have to put a star rating here for posting this comment but I would add no star at all if I have choice !

I would very much recommend sheerbliss salon for waxing I had Hollywood wax with Lycon hot wax which the beautician recommended as Iam sensitive and it was great less painfull than any other waxes I have had up to now I was warmly welcomed at reception and asked for a tea or coffee then therapist came and introduced herself to me and shook my hand which I thought was very professional they all wear sheerbliss uniforms which look very smart the salon looks very clean and modern and the beauty room was also very clean overall I am very happy I found this place and definitely will be coming back for more treatments .

I had laser session at sheerbliss and as they promised it was pain free saprono ice laser is said to be the latest technology award winning laser as I did a little investigating before hand staff are very friendly I was offered hot or cold drink as soon as I arrived which made me comfortable and had my 1st session with no problems at all would definitely recommend I would not believe all that's written on some of reviews and would recommend you try it out for yourselves I left very happy and have taken a course of six sessions for the laser.

I went sheer bliss in Dalston today and I will never forget the way have been treated. When I got there at 4.40pm the hair dresser told me that they are closing by 6.30pm and she couldnt do all 3 service. I asked her if she could do the colouring and the cut which she replied that it would be fine. After the colouring she come up to me and told me that I have to leave because is already 6pm and the are closing by 6.30. So there was I sitting with wet and not cutted hair!!! I went for a haire cut plus color and blow dry. And .all I got is hair color attitude, attitude and finally we are closing now so come back tomorrow for the hair cut and the blow dry. I paid 40£ for attitude and disrespecr and to be told that I have to leave the salon with unfinished and wet hair at this December weather in the evening.

Just got my nails done with Shellac here and it's the worst I've ever had... The nail technician was nice but clearly inexperienced, and my full set of nails just pulled off in one piece. Worst quality shellac I've ever had on my nails - do not recommend as I've wasted time and money on nothing.

Sunbeds are strong, great value for money and you rarely have to wait.

I used to go to Sheer Bliss some years ago. I was thinking of going today. After reading the reviews I remember why I stopped going. I went for a haircut on one occasion, it wasn't bad. Another time I went to get my nose pierced. That was horrendous and painful as the piercing gun got stuck and the girl doing it just continued to yank at it, with no regard for me. Another time I went to go for electrolysis and the woman doing it didn't know what she was doing, she couldn't start the machine. she didn't have overall or gloves on and the whole time she spoke Turkish to her colleagues over me. Given them many chances to redeem themselves but it looks like they still haven't improved.

DO NOT GO HERE FOR SUNBEDS - They've recently raised the price from 50p to 75p a minute - a horribly uncalled for sudden increase of 50%. There's a place 5 minutes down the road on Kingsland road that's still 50p a minute - I urge you to go there. Other than that, the receptionists are very cold and rude, not at all welcoming, apart from one girl that works there on a Sunday. The hair products there are also horribly over priced. Overall - bad, bad bad.

I had the absolute worst waxing experience of my life. I have gone for Hollywood or Brazilian waxes many times at other salons and never, has it ever, hurt as badly as it did tonight. I really don't think the beautician had any idea what she was doing. Not only that, she left wax everywhere, including on my clothing. Plus, she claimed that I didn't ask for hot wax, and went with strips - even after I questioned her about it she continued to use the strips... The wrong way! She didn't rub the whole area to make the wax stick to the paper, and repeatedly stuck the strip to the area and ripped away causing even more pain. It was a completely awful experience. I will never go back.

Recently moved to dalston and found myself fantastic hair beauty and sunbed salon they have wide range of treatments and products and sunbeds are 50p a minute i had a wonderful hydradermie facial with giunot skincare products at less than half the price of the big major stores waxing was great No problems at all would recomend to everyone xxxxx

Poor service Booked a massage on a Tuesday for next day no staff was available when i turned up and was NOT given a refund i even payed with a debit card with receipt and then they denied knowledge of my payment and could NOT even re-book i got RIPPED OFF out of "120 pounds"

Myself and a friend had a wash cut and blow dry here on Sunday, we both had an awful cut that wasn't even straight and a lot shorter than what we had asked for "a trim", when we complained they offered us the same person to supposedly rectify the mess that was made with no discussion regarding what options were available to us (we both have short hair so understandably we didn't want to risk it). We have now both had to go to a different hairdressers to fix it. When the new hairdresser saw us they agreed that it had been chopped into and was "a mess". The "hairdresser" at Sheer Bliss that cut our hair lacked any knowledge, let alone skill in this profession and the customer service that we received after this was even more dire! I think that it is fair to say that customer service and hairdresser skills are non-existant in this place. To say that we are very unimpressed with the treatment that we received from this establishment is the understatement of the year! You can rest assure that you will never receive our custom again and that we will seek to actively discourage people from ever using the establishment.

i think sheer bliss is one of the best beauty salons ever, it is 5 star treatment and has everything under one roof, i live in chelmsford and travel there every two weeks for my treatments. for waxing for hair for tanning the latest products!! 5star havnt cocme across any better waxing than them.

I've been to quite a few so "called beauty salon" but i always come back to sheer bliss. I only use them for waxing though .The prices are reasonnable. Full legs & bottom waxed at £37 that's a good deal. I only use them for waxing though . the salon is always clean & nice . ( which is unusual for the area!!) The room are clean & bright . the beautician are always nice and happy to chat . I would only recommend you book early
