I've NEVER written a review before, but I'm infuriated. Zoltan completely ignored what I requested and gave me a bowl cut. I went back in to get my cut fixed, stating I was unable to style it, and was made to feel stupid. £36 down the drain, and I’ve also had to pay another hairdresser to fix it, which only took about 5 minutes but was told by Zoltan is an “impossible” job. It seems he was trying to prove a point and would not accept any criticism, at my expense and time… Read Full Review

Getting my highlights done at Goswell eshk. I arrived asking questions about the techniques she would use and the overall effect. I mentioned that I liked what my previous colorist had done (but he is too expensive) . Se became visibly frustrated by my questions and this comment and subsequently told me that I can go back to my previous colorist if I didn't trust her and if I liked his work so much. I have never been spoken to like this et and after a long work week this Saturday appt was… Read Full Review

I've been going to the salon for quite long and i've always been satisfied. The staff is always very nice, receptionists are friendly and the place is clean. Unfortunately one day i found out my spanish stylist left. But i'm super happy now because Marta is back. She's very professional with all the suggestions about my style, great cut and color every time. I definitely recommend the salon… Read Full Review

I've been coming to ESHK for about a year now after downsizing from Sassoon. I've had my hair cut by pretty much all the stylists and have been relatively satisfied up until my most recent visit, where I was booked in with Zoltan (a supposedly senior stylist). He offered no greeting or introduction, no consultation or recommendations (isn't that the whole point of offering a "premium" service?) and he kept leaving for several minutes at a time without giving an explanation. At no point did he… Read Full Review

I have been to Eshk for quite a while, I used to go the Hoxton one but now I live in Barbican I tried the one on Goswell Road. I had Sebastian the senior Stylist and what a great cut. The guy takes his time and I felt very comfortable. So happy with my cut happy to manage and I feel good I had to share!… Read Full Review

The senior stylists are all very good (I've tried most of them. - I don't want to say my favourite as they're already very popular!) and capable of suggesting unconventional cuts. But the ones I've received from the male stylists Manu and [name removed] left me unsatisfied. They both didn't seem to have much imagination when cutting Asian hair. [name removed] especially didn't seem very interested in hearing what I wanted and couldn't be bothered to talk at an audible volume responding to my… Read Full Review

So, I came here because I wanted a new style, yet was terrified of trying a new salon. I called earlier in the week and asked the friendly receptionist who would be good at taking my dyed-black hair to a lovely red. She recommended Marco, so I booked an appointment. I came in and was immediately greeted by friendly staff and met Marco who was incredibly hospitable and listened to me when I described what I wanted-black to darker red with limited damage to my hair. He was able to pull it off… Read Full Review

A friend recommended ESHK Hoxton as i work nearby so thought i would give it a go. I am usually very fussy with my hair and have trouble with new hairdressers but ESHK Hoxton was brilliant! Great atmosphere in the salon and my stylist Ana was amazing! I was very happy with her customer service and my hair! She did exactly what i asked which doesn't happen often and made me feel very comfortable. I will definitely go to her again and tell my friends too. Massive thumbs up!… Read Full Review

Went there the other day based on the ratings and comments here, and I was very pleased! Sofie was lovely, and just the kind of hairdresser I need. I had very long hair (almost touching my bum), and I needed to get a real hairstyle. Sofie proposed two alternatives after hearing me out, and explained which she thought would suit me best, which was just what I needed. I want a nice hairstyle, but I had no idea really what would suit me, but while she had her own ideas, she still listened to my… Read Full Review

I have never been so upset by a haircut (or, in fact, any service) that I've refused to pay and been compelled to write a negative review, but here goes... I came here because I couldn't get an appointment at my usual salon. I know what I like - I brought in around 7-8 photographs of the style I wanted. After waiting 20 minutes for a consultation, the French chap who spoke to me clearly didn't speak enough English to understand what I wanted (although, I would assume that, as a hairdresser… Read Full Review

I had grown out my hair for about a year, its a medium ash blonde and the ends were a bit blonder....I basically asked her to simply make the rest of the hair the same colour fading naturally to a bit blonder at the ends....simple you think? Well apparently not. She died my hair basically bloody black! Nothing natural about this, about 10 times too dark and if this wasnt worse enough it looked like she'd got a ruler and painted around half my head and then splattered a few black patches where… Read Full Review

I first went to Eshk after I ready a time out review saying how great it was. The first couple of times I went, I had JAY, who was great and I was very happy with my hair. Soon she moved up to a senior stylist and started charging £55 which was too steep for me (all their senior stylists charge that much) so I went with a junior stylist. I got a young French guy, Camille. He was nice enough but it was the worst hair cut I have ever had. He didn't seem to go to a great deal of effort and I… Read Full Review

Finally a "fancy" salon that you feel welcome and comfortable in! The staff is super cool and trendy but so nice and pay you lots of attention in the way I like it. Like "-Lets talk about your hair!" Cause that is what they care about, not my "last holiday cold-talk". Im so happy, would recommend it to everyone that lives/works around clerkenwell/old st and has a chance to get there!… Read Full Review

THIS IS A GREAT SALON!: I got my hair cut this weekend. Daniel did an EXCELLENT job! I was so happy with his cut, and style. We tried something new and its working out. He was meticulous and spent a ton of time on my hair. You should go! When you see him let him know that Amanda sent you! Best of luck!… Read Full Review

Fabulous salon! I've been working to grow my hair for over 5 years and it was time for someone to give it some shape and bring it to life. In my experience most salons have been eager to transform my look completely and give me their own vision for a make-over. Susan was very interested in spending time carefully listening to what I wanted. It became evident that Susan is an acute judge of character and she carefully controlled every step of the process to be sure it would come out right and… Read Full Review

ESHK Hair clerkenwell.
This place markets itself as a resonably high brow hair salon, but it is not. At least not the Clerkenwell branch. Haven't tried Hoxton.
As stated on their website the staff are friendly. They certainly don't use top range products -not a keratase product in sight!
The guy cutting my hair rolled his eyes, threw his hands in the air and laughed incredulously when I asked him for his opinion on how the back should be cut. I then said what I wanted. He went on to cut the… Read Full Review

My first experience at ESHK was good with Sebastian but unfortunately I went back there again on his day off. I got Daniel I think his name was (tight curly reddish brown hair) who was unfriendly and unprofessional and did a terrible job with my highlights. I felt so uncomfortable from his vibe that I decided to dry my own hair because I didn't want him anywhere near me and couldn't wait to get out of the salon.
I will never go there again and how these people get jobs where part of their job… Read Full Review

I went to ESHK Hair Salon today at the Clerkenwell branch. I was looking for a new hairdresser ever since my old hairdresser went back to Japan. I'd recently had my haircut at Moga a Japanese salon but wansn't happy with the results (language barrier and a not very confident hairdresser don't mix).
So I called and booked an appointment same day on Monday and asked specifically for someone who had experience in cutting men's East Asian hair. They recommended Chiaki and after a consultation… Read Full Review
