“First and last time there!!”

Written on: 15/05/2015 by Alicez254 (1 review written)

Went for a haircut today - no friendly welcome - told wait would be 15 minutes - was nearer 45. Herded around from one waiting area to another. Asked for scissor cut on top - clippers used. No tiding up with razor. It looked a mess - asked for my hair to be brushed back, stylist asked "what do you mean?" There was no conversation from her- seemed totally disinterested in her work and customer. Strange attitude altogether. Whole place looked disheveled and dirty. VERY DISAPPOINTED… Read Full Review

“First time experience of Crop Shop Norwich”

Written on: 16/04/2015 by Kelleyhr98 (1 review written)

I went in for a tidy up of my shoulder length hair which had been thinned out and was poking everywhere after a long time between cuts (my bad) and waited approximately thirty seconds before going upstairs with a hairdresser. I thought it would be a bad time as it was 1pm but I guess as a weekday I got lucky. No wait whatsoever. Discussed what I wanted and was sent to be washed, conditioned and massaged - a very nice experience. Plenty of time spent on cutting, blow-drying and straightening my… Read Full Review

“Good haircut very cheap in unattractive salon”

Written on: 31/03/2015 by Finnlo405 (1 review written)

The hairdresser I saw was lovely and I love my cut.I was told at reception when I arrived that the wait time would be approximately 30 minutes.I expected this and the time went quickly as I had brought something to read and enjoyed chatting with other customers.Downsides:my hairdresser aside, staff manners generally seem lacking and service is less than polished. A please, a thank you and a friendly smile from staff wouldn't have gone amiss as I was shepherded through one waiting area after… Read Full Review

“You're in for a long wait...”

Written on: 28/03/2015

Often go here for a quick cut and tidy up. I expected a wait as a walk in customer, so took coffee and sandwich. I was told wait was 30 minutes by the owner, who sat me in queue by the door. Not a problem, is expected it. He was friendly and chatted a bit which I thought was nice HOWEVER 25 minutes passed and a hairdresser randomly walked over and asked who was next, at which point a girl who had entered after me stood up and was swiftly seated despite my protests. I was later asked to follow… Read Full Review

“Filthy ”

Written on: 03/03/2015 by Martinez299 (1 review written)

I haven't been for a few years so I thought I'd give it another try. I went in on Sunday afternoon. 22nd feb. Didn't have to wait long to see stylist who had been busy having a cigarette in the street. I did wait to get my hair washed and was given a ringside seat to the very young girls arguing and generally showing off. Not relaxing for me and definitely no professionalism from them. My stylist was fairly bubbly and chatty. My haircut was ok, nothing special. It didn't look great when it… Read Full Review

“Waste of time and money! ”

Written on: 06/12/2014 by Tobin246 (1 review written)

I really am not impressed with the experiences that I've had at The Crop Shop. One of the times that I went there, they cut my hair and one side of my hair must've been about 3 inches longer than the other! The worst experience that I had with this "hairdresser" was today. I went to The Crop Shop to get some layers put into my hair. I went in and told the hairdresser what I wanted who then sent me upstairs to have my hair washed. It was all fine until I went back downstairs and the hair dresser… Read Full Review

“Trained here and is one of the best hair dressers of 2012”

Written on: 22/11/2014 by Javon320 (1 review written)

I worked at Crop Shop Norwich for about a year, I passed everything with the highest scores and was the highest scoring Apprentice they have had. I was pushed forward to do a compertion to promote the Shop. I was then in the finals so I was having to leave the Saloon for 3 mothns to live abroad and work on film sets doing hair. I told the Owner this and he said well you dont go and keep your job or leave here now and not have a job anymore. I didnt like the shop but i loved working with… Read Full Review

“No problems whatsoever”

Written on: 12/09/2014 by 385Lucas (1 review written)

I visited Cropshop yesterday for the first time and as it was £10.00 for a wash and blow dry was not expecting it to resemble a top price hairdressers. The wait was approximately 25 mins but that is to be expected with no appointment, they have a system which involves you moving seats as each person is called, no problem there. My hairdresser was pleasant, discussed what I wanted, then cut and styled my hair. I was very pleased with the end result. I did not find the place dirty, you have to… Read Full Review

“It's a Hairdressers”

Written on: 18/08/2014

I think the wide variety of reviews just points to the obvious.Haircuts are always fairly hit and miss.Even with a trusted sylist some cuts are better than others so after several hits and several misses at the Crop Shop I'm happily settled with Robyn.An excellent cutter at a fabulous price. This is a hair cut-not WW3… Read Full Review

“DO NOT GO HERE”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by Kaylaleveridge (1 review written)

Worst place to go, no wonder it cost £10! Very dirty, I came in the morning, thinking it would be clean! I went to have my hair washed, I was waiting for my turn, the SAME towel was used on THREE People, then tried to use it on me! The 'hairdressers' was eating when customers are waiting for them! When waiting for my 'hairdresser' to cut my hair, she was on her phone, texting and looked at her Facebook! After telling her I just want three inches off, she cut three inches off, oh on one… Read Full Review

“Well, where should I begin?”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by jlLindsay148 (1 review written)

Well, what can one say about one's experience at The Crop Shop? It was shocking. I mean, don't get me wrong, it's £10, was I expecting a fantastic, knock-your-socks-off hair cut? Of course not, but I was expecting to be treated with human decency instead of the appalling "move here, now move here, now move again" approach. I suppose being welcomed by a 17-year-old, bored looking, uninterested teenage boy should have given me my first warning sign but I thought little of it and carried on with… Read Full Review

“HORRIBLE”

Written on: 08/07/2014

I used to work here at Croo Shop and it was horrible. Especially when the man who owns was in. As much as i liked doing peoples hair and i wasnt one of the lazy ones that dont care about your hair, i hated it when he was in, he always shouts at people in front of clients, will swear at you and watch out ladies, he is very pervy man. He always looks you up and down, stares at you whilst you go up or down the stairs, will comment on your figure or something. One time i was in his office and… Read Full Review

“disgraceful!!!”

Written on: 01/07/2014 by HassanHodges (1 review written)

I visited this place a couple of weeks ago for full head foils and a cut and blowdry for my sons wedding. I usually visit john olivers but as they didn't have any appointments avaliable I decided to give cropshop ago. I looked through the reviews and thought it honestly can't be that bad. After being in the salon 2 minutes my opinion was quickly swayed!! I was greeted by a lady with redish curly hair (manager) she was rude and told to sit on a dirty chair behind hairdresses cutting other… Read Full Review

“Brilliant”

Written on: 06/06/2014 by YasmineHurst88 (1 review written)

I had my hair coloured this week with Lucy. A friend recommended me to her and she was amazing! She talked me through the options and was thoroughly professional. She was very bubbly and chatty which I love! I'd feel awkward if my stylist didn't talk to me during my appointment. My hair was exactly how I had imagined it would be and she styled it beautifully! I'd heard mixed reviews about the crop shop but I definitely found a diamond, I shall be recommending Lucy to all my friends and I've… Read Full Review

“Filthy!!! Dirty!!! Avoid!!!”

Written on: 19/05/2014 by beebee17 (1 review written)

I went in just for a trim. I was told it would be a 15 min wait. It turned out more like 25 mins. I thought oh well it is Saturday. The cut was fine but the experience was not great. First, was in queue, sat in a row of chairs behind hairdresser's chairs. No privacy for the person having their hair done. Was then moved to another queue. Its a bit like musical chairs here. Had to go upstairs to have my hair washed then came down stairs in full view of everyone hair wet and looking its worst. No… Read Full Review

“Visited many times - always good!”

Written on: 01/05/2014 by batkrook (1 review written)

I've been to the crop shop at least 10 times, if not more. As a student, it suits my budget! The ladies are always polite (some less talkative than others, but that's fine by me) and sit you down to ask what you want before you go to have your hair washed. I have rainbow coloured hair and it needs washing in cool water, and not scrubbing too much to retain the colour - I always tell the person washing my hair this, and they're always happy to accommodate my request. I've had standard trims… Read Full Review

“sheer ignorance ”

Written on: 22/04/2014 by xuWilson179 (1 review written)

Rung on Bank Holiday to find out if the shop was open. Been told it was only 1 booking made so for so that should ring alarm bells. Once there my elder son was taken downstairs and I stayed with my 14 years old. I have instructed Jemma who is supposed to be a manageress there though my son was saying he wanted his hair left longer. All in the good humour. When I told Jemma to cut his hair I wanted as I was his Mum she told me in a rather rude way 'who wants that haircut and who am I supposed to… Read Full Review

This "hairdressers" have completely ruined my hair, the girl barely out of school cut and blow dried my hair and has completely fried it!!! I am now taking court action as the damage is so bad please avoid these idiots they are not trained it is not worth the hassle of having to then fix your hair afterwards and the embarrassment of walking around with my hair looking like its been on fire! no conditioner was applied to my hair after being shampooed leaving my hair in knots. the girl then spent… Read Full Review
