“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

“Would have felt more happy at the dentists!”

Written on: 24/02/2014 by Lotsofhair (1 review written)

This was such a terrible mistake for me to go to the Crop Shop in Norwich today! It was such a thoroughly miserable experience! I'll admit that I was swayed by a walk-in £10 cut and thought it couldn't be so bad as the place always looks packed. I can't believe they get many repeat customers though. The cut itself was okay, but I did just ask for a tidy up of split ends and a fringe trim, nothing too taxing. While I was waiting though, I was watching another girl having quite a short… Read Full Review

“Says what it is on the tin”

Written on: 15/01/2014 by Beckyboo118 (1 review written)

Does what it says on the tin.. Age has nothing to do with it. Young or not there are many talented young people out there and perhaps they are not the most enthusiastic all the time but that also has something to do with attitude. Leave age out of it - at least they are having a shot at life and trying ... Not jobless they are working and it's a crop shot express cut super value ... Does what it says on the tin. Go girls carry on and do your best!… Read Full Review

“Excellent value!”

Written on: 02/01/2014 by Josahk (1 review written)

A friend recommended crop shop to me. After reading some of the reviews I almost changed my mind, but I'm glad I didn't! I didn't have to wait long and everyone (front desk, hair washing & stylist) were all friendly and my cut was what I asked for! Very happy with the result!… Read Full Review

“Really not as bad as people are making out!”

Written on: 29/12/2013

After reading the reviews on here i was slightly nervous about trying it out. But after being in desperate need of a haircut i thought id give it a shot. With no wait atall i was seen by a young girl. Upstairs by the window blonde hair. She was really talkative and made me feel very comfortable after the awful reviews id read before hand. She did exactly what i asked for and was very happy with my new look. Hair wash was also very relaxing no complaints there. Im definatley going to be going… Read Full Review

“SO WISH I WOULDVE READ THESE BEFORE GOING”

Written on: 19/12/2013

Ok, so Crop shop is known for being cheap and quick hence why the ques r so long. After walking past many times i decided to bite the bullet and do it, i mean wats the worst that can go wrong, right? I was ushered over, quite rudely by a foreign lady, who listened to me whilst telling her how id like my hair, my hair was half way down my back and wavy. I wanted an inch cut off and shorter choppier layers as my hair was thick. After a very young girl roughly washed my hair and soaked my back she… Read Full Review

“Disguisting and 0 hair-salon skills”

Written on: 14/10/2013 by norwichgirl2013 (1 review written)

I was in a rush, and wanted a walk-in hair-salon where I didn't need an appointment in advance. Seeing that it's accredited by City & Guilds, I thought it couldn't be terrible. Wrong, it was terrible! -- The place is very very dirty. There's all types and styles of hair in every corner in every single spot of the place. Don't they vacuum and clean up? I came home to find my shopping bag full of small hair from a hair-cut of another client. -- the sink they washed my hair in was sooo ditry… Read Full Review

“Awful terrible place”

Written on: 30/09/2013

This shop is like the primal if not worse of the hairdressing world! Scruffy unenthusiastic young girls who probably just scrapped through there training, I had an awful cut in the norwich branch yesterday, I had one length long hair so just needed a trim, not a difficult cut but one side is longer than the other, my hair was left wet at the back and damp on top, she didn't use any products and no passion for her job at all, I never go here but was in a rush but would never go back, it's just… Read Full Review

“Express wash, cut and blow dry”

Written on: 27/07/2013

Until now, I have been satisfied with the services from Crop Shop Norwich. However, today was appalling. I was asked to sit on the windowsill and wait for an express cut and blow dry as it was a 30 mins wait which was no problem at all. What annoyed me was the fact that staff forgot I was sitting there and for 10 minutes were ushering people past me. Then when I said something to the person at front desk which happened to be the man in charge, he lied and told me that all the people being… Read Full Review

“Hit and miss”

Written on: 22/06/2013 by Jenine77 (1 review written)

I've used the Crop Shop for many years, but ONLY for simple trims. I have proper cuts at a proper salon! I've heard lots of horror stories from friends who have gone for something more complex, including wonky cuts, burnt with dryers/straightners, waits of over two hours, damage to, and even theft of, property and colourings that snapped hair at the roots. GOOD POINTS Cheap No appointment needed None of that salon "small talk" BAD POINTS Not all the staff are good, some are very bad in… Read Full Review

“Great service!!!!”

Written on: 18/06/2013

Everyone says Cropshop is so bad. But if its really that bad why is the waiting time over and hour long? The queue is full. And everyone I know is pleased with their haircut. People only judge it because it is cheap. And to be honest it's great for what you are paying!! If you don't like it go somewhere else.. It's not hard is it?? It's just a normal hairdressing business the same as what most salons offer. Just a very busy buisness. All the stylists are qualified and I spoke to the girl who… Read Full Review

“Shaved many bold spots”

Written on: 04/05/2013

The haircut was rushed and even when I asked for a scissor cut, a shaver was used. This resulted in many bold spots being placed on my head due to slippage of the under qualified hairdresser. When I complained at the end the hairdresser did not care at all. Would never use again. It is just full of young apprentices who had no training. DO NOT USE… Read Full Review
