I have always felt a bit of trepidation when having my hair cut, especially as I have become older. Entering a salon which is usually the domain of the young, and sometimes bizare can be quite daunting, and although I am only 53, the last time I visited a salon 2 years ago I could not wait to get out. I felt I was totally out of control of what I wanted, and walked out, only to run home and burst into tears, not only at what my hair looked like, but the money I could ill afford to waste. So...

I can not believe the last review on this page I've been going to this salon for 5 yrs now and have never been disappointed, the staff are always accommodating and I've never stuck to going to one salon as everywhere used to go had a bitchy atmosphere, at spargo I know most of the staffs name and they all chat to me when I go in, I love spargo and would recommend anyone to go I have a great time getting away from the kids and being relaxed x (read more)

I have been going to Spargos since Red started working there and he's been cutting my hair for about ten years. I'm often complemented and asked where I have had it done. He's a very talented, creative stylist and I would highly recommend him. There are now tons of hairdressers in Brentwood and Spargos probably isn't the poshest looking, but it's clean and spacious enough and and the staff are very friendly and helpful. If you want a quality stylish cut, then this is the place to go. (read more)

Always look forward to my couple of hours of being pampered at Spargo. Coat is taken the minute you walk in the door, drinks offered and then shown by the stylist straight to your seat in the salon. Never kept waiting which is a huge bonus given how hectic life is. The stylist always spends time talking to you first and has a wealth of knowledge re colour and styling, I am never disappointed.

I have been going to Spargo for years and would never go anywhere else. Brilliant staff, friendly, welcoming and helpful. Although Toni usually cuts my hair (she is great), when she has not been available I have booked with Ian, Stacey, Red and others. Whilst it is always a little daunting when your regular hairdresser is not available, not so at Spargo. I have never come out less than really happy. My three daughters also use Spargo, so a bit of a family tradition. (read more)

Fantastic hairdressers, friendly staff who make you feel welcome. You really feel valued as a customer. I have been having my hair done by Ian the owner before he opened Spargo's and I would not go anywhere else, as I know I can trust him to do my colour and cut and his staff ensure that whilst you are there you have a great experience by ensuring you have a drink, magazines to read and then they spoil you with a wonderful head massage. If you are struggling to find a hairdressers you... (read more)

After trying several Brentwood High Street hairdressers, I have been going to visit Kate at Spargo regularly for about 4 years now. Kate is really helpful with her practical style tips and hints, and has a real passion for hair. She always gives me amazing advice and I completely trust her with my hair, I let her do what she thinks is best. I always receive compliments about my latest hair style and even when I have been too busy to fit in time for a haircut, the style grows well.... (read more)

Im 58 years old so, as you can imagine, have been to a few hairdressers in my time. Ian, the owner, since taking over the salon has ALWAYS been welcoming and careing to me (and other customers). All the stylists are professional and up-to-date with the latest trends. I'm always happy with the way Amy colours my hair which is quite long and thick. Drying my hair has always seemed to be a problem for stylist but Amy has proved to be the ONLY hairdresser I have ever had who can actually dry my... (read more)

For years I've have been searching for a hairdresser and after talking to a friend I was recommended Red at Spargo. The staff are always friendly and helpful. I am made to look and feel a million dollars by the time I leave. I drive past lots of other salons just to go to spargo. I also love that they send me a reminder text when my appointment is due which is really handy when you have a busy life! Why would I want to go anywhere else? (read more)

I have only been once to Spargo but I am definetley going back within the next week. They're sooooooo friendly there and everything is so clean and glamorous looking! I was offered a comfortable chair and a beverage straight away and my appointment was straight forward with good conversation throughout. Value for money is brilliant here, I'd recommend to EVERYONE!! (read more)

I have been going to Spargo for years, and never come out disappointed. I trust Toni's advice and suggestions without question, and her cut and colours are brilliant.

I have gone out of my way to travel to this salon for years now. They make you feel very relaxed and welcome. I love the reward system they do and although I normally get to the till and think how much my hair always looks fab so I keep returning. Considering I have paid nearly as much else where when unable to get an appointment here and thought what a waste of money because Ive hated it. Thanks Spargo. (read more)

I have been a regular client at Spargo for years, infact i used to go there when they had a previous owner and i have never had any problems whatsoever and always walked out happy. I could give them nothing but praise and after reading the previous review, why would you leave it 3 years to complain?? Anyway, I have recommened Spargo to my friends and they say the same as me. 5 STARS SPARGO - YOU ARE DOING EVERYTHING RIGHT! (read more)

I called here when looking for a wedding hair stylist. Very helpful on the phone - offered me a FREE consultation appointment to discussed what I wanted to get a quotation price, agreed. I took time off work, arrived to find no appointment had been put in the book, they managed to 'squeeze' me in. The very moody girl spent most of the time showing me pictures of what she did at Jodie marshes wedding rather than spending anytime asking what I waned. I told her what I wanted in the end (half...

I had a consultation here and all seemed well. I was red wanting to go blonde. The girl who gave me my 2minute consultation explained two options to me, these being colour correction (which I knew noting about, but sounded good) or go through the orange stage. I chose the colour correction as I was assured it would not damage my hair and I would leave blonde. This is where the tale turns...After hours of treatment and finally an end product, I look in the mirror and tell the stylist who also... (read more)

I visted Spargo a few weeks ago and thought it was a lovely well run salon, with friendly staff and very welcoming. I was really pleased with my cut and my blowdry lasted days.
i ve been to a lot of salons and i think being able to blowdry is a valable skill in this industry, and especially with frizzy unruely hair that i got blessed with and believe me ive seen some awful ones. The young stylist was very knowlegable about both products and colours and made me feel really relaxed, i... (read more)

Wow was so shocked by the reviews on here - I have honestly never found a hairdressers that do exactly what I ask before I found Spargos - client care is amazing - constantly offered drinks and mags and feel really valued as a customer. I work as a mystery shopper and can honestly say that if Spargo was one of my assignments they would get 5*'s. Love the passion the hairdressers have there - I have been there a few times when the lady from Phillip Kingsley is training them about... (read more)

Went to this hairdresser's and asked for a shoulder length haircut with lots of layers to add volume.
Have ended up with a bowl haircut, very straight at the ends and at maximum one or two layers at the front.
Hairdresser seemed moody and inattentive. Not interested when I asked about hair colour.
Not impressed. Will not be going back to this one ever again. (read more)

I had my colour and cut done at spargo - so funky, exactly what I wanted and more. The staff were hillarious, I had a real laugh and needed that as I have just had a baby and been feeling a bit blue. Ive finally got my identity back and I was really surprised at just how much fun I could have with my stylist, considering i didnt know them!! A real friendly bunch!

Went there fot the first time this week.
I dont wamnt to mention names in this review but there is one particular lady i wasnt very impressed with, the whole service seemed to be about her life, not once was i included in the conversation, it was all about her, and her wedding, and her pregnancy.
I wont be going back as my hair cut was appauling, and is very uneven, the salon is very unfinished, messy and someone should definatley hire a pro painter in the future!

Agree with the other posters on here. Went here for the first time a while back and will NOT be going back. This is a bimbo-land hairdressers. There is zero customer service here. Hairdressers chat amongst themselves so you actually don't feel like you belong. Haircut was also poor and they are constantly trying to sell you products you don't need. Waste of money. Don't go there. Go to the one in Crown street instead. (read more)

I thought Spargo Hairdressers was great when I went! I had a senior stylist.
I had a cut and blow dry for half price, because I had a recommend a friend voucher.
I was given a great haircut, and the stylist did a fantastic job, and I felt that she knew exactly what she was talking about - which is useful!
At the end, I got some vouchers for my friends so they can have their hair done at half price, and I will receive a £5 voucher. (read more)

Although it was nice of the reception staff to offer a drink, I have given a score of zero as the actual product I was after (a nice haircut) turned out to be very poor. One month after haircut, I have split ends which has never happened before. I also asked for advice about my thinning hair and was told it was fine, even though I clearly have a few bald patches. Luckily, there are plenty of other hairdressers in Brentwood for me to take my business to in the future! (read more)

I have been to Spargo and now am a regular, I LOVE IT HERE, i referred it to my friend who has also had a fantastic experience. Great value for money, I can leave my hair to dry with no styling and the cut is fantastic. I am really pleased and return every 6 weeks. I have had an experience wih nits before as I have younger siblings and I have to say it was dealt with discretely and I was actually grateful to be told (even though I did not have itching either) so I could deal with it ASAP.

What can I say? I went in to the Spargo hairdressers in Brentwood for a simple haircut for new job in the city. Senior stylist washed and shampooed my hair fine. She then proceeded to cut it. Fine too. However, halfway through, she got another girl to blow dry my hair while she went to find some straighteners. This girl left me sitting in the chair to go and talk to senior stylist. The senior stylist came back and told me that I had to leave the salon immediately as the girl had diagnosed... (read more)
