A great place to get a free (or £5) cut and colour. You'll need to allot plenty of time, as this can take up to 4 hours and the trainees check in frequently with their supervisors. But the hairstylists are kind. Be prepared to fight for what you want, to avoid getting a disappointing haircut that fulfils a training requirement!

I honestly had the loveliest spanish young man called Robin fix my dreadful orangey/yellow hair that went wrong when I dyed it myself. It took him a very long 6 hours to fix my hair but I am beyond grateful! He is very precise, conscientious and hard working student that was always willing to learn from his tutor. He didn't complain one bit and started work at 9 and didn't finish my hair until 3pm (without a break or anything). I am beyond grateful and his tutor was fabulous! I really hope he and his tutor get the recognition they deserve! Wonderful salon and they always check with you and the tutor first before they do anything!

I am glad I tried it. Levels of supervision are really high and the trainees already have a lot of experience so things cannot go wrong. Just expect the whole thing to take a good couple of hours and bring pound coins if you want to buy coffee...

Trying Toni & Guy the first time, overall I had a good experience. The teachers were looking around to supervise the trainees. The trainee doing my haircut was very friendly, careful. He kept asking my opinions for every step, which I really appreciated. Just a minor thing I don't really like is that the teacher was not so friendly. However, generally I was satisfied with my haircut there. Highly recommended.

have been here few times always happy about my haircut, highly recommended place. Teachers keeping eye on students so there is no place for mistakes.
