“Bad hair day”

Written on: 25/04/2015 by JaylahThompson (1 review written)

Went for blow dry only £35.00 , thought ok " I ll treat myself " . I wanted big hair and told the stylist so. What did I get ? A guy who obviously knows nothing about blowing hair to give it volume and bounce. From the moment he started drying my hair I knew it was a mistake . Used wrong brush to start with , should be a big roll brush not a small flat brush , then dried my long hair from above not from the underneath . Flattened all my hair and then back combed the back of my head to make my… Read Full Review

“Good cut unreliable service”

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

I moved to sassoon liverpool for a treat and expectations of quality prescision cutting for short hair. I can't say I was disappointed with the cut but on 5 occasions I had appointments booked took time off work and they cancelled or phoned to delay the appointment by a few hours because other clients had arrived late!! On one occasion I had just parked in Liverpool costing a fortune when they called to push the appointment back in favour of another client who was an hour late....clearly no… Read Full Review

“dirty place with no service”

Written on: 27/06/2014 by Jaydan280 (1 review written)

I went yesterday to the salon on Southern Molton Street ( Mayfair) and asked for a senior hairdresser. The chair they offered me was surrounded by hair from former customers. Although three different girls asked me, if I want something to drink, nothing was actually offered to me. I paid 91 pounds for 40 minutes service. The blow-dry was not worst one pound. I looked better when I entered the salon than when I left. So I rushed home really disappointed. … Read Full Review

“An Aweful Experience”

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

I was a regular client of VS over ten years ago. I loved going there, the stylists were great and they really strived to make you happy. I recently made an appointment two months in advance to get my hair cut and relaxed after growing it out for several years. I requested a senior hair cutter because in my experience they did the best job. The relaxing was fine; however the hair cutter rushed through the process. I showed her a picture of what I wanted twice, she said she understood. I have… Read Full Review

“Worst haircut EVER”

Written on: 25/03/2013 by Fruitbat40 (1 review written)

I am a hairdresser of 25 years and in the past had my hair done at Vidal Sassoon a couple of times ( not a the Newcastle salon ) just as a treat I thought I would visit today , I have what I can only say that I have been butchered I have come home and checked my hair through and I can honestly say my junior of 5 months blind folded could have done better . I wasn't listened to or if I was I wasn't heard what a waste of £70 hope Vidal is spinning if that's what his legacy is left with… Read Full Review

“horrible hair cut”

Written on: 10/03/2013 by nadiakkak (1 review written)

I had a haircut by a Level 5 stylist. I can most certainly say it is one of the worst haircuts i have had. My hair is curly, and it was cut by him in so many different hideous levels , that now my hair just sits flat , with very distict cut off points and levels , style doesnt flow , and of course no curls! Horrible, cant wait for my hair to grow sufficeintly to have a corrective haircut somewhere else. Its a shame that for the price they charge (nearly 100 quid) a level 5 stylist doesnt know… Read Full Review

“Dried out my hair”

Written on: 27/02/2013 by momma345 (1 review written)

I've dyed my own hair for years. I tried VS last night and it dried out my hair more then any other dye. I usually find my hair softer after dying. I used the BLACK colour which isn't black its more of a natural black or dark dark brown which is what I wanted. It turned out the same color the box showed but I'll never use it again because it's sooo dry… Read Full Review

“Never again!”

Written on: 07/11/2012 by Julia1981 (1 review written)

Horrible salon, unprofessional people and they look as thought they are. I was more or less pleased when I was leaving the salon, not over the moon though, but when I got home realized that the color they suggested doesn't suit me and actually is the most terrible color I have ever had, the cut was awful, still had split ends and it's not the best I had, have paid 170 quid for all+ they have fooled me with the prices on products, sticking the higher price above the lowest. I used to go to… Read Full Review

“I have been going to vidal sassoon in manchester city...”

Written on: 06/10/2012

I have been going to vidal sassoon in manchester city centre for over 20 yrs. I'm sorry to say the past few times i have been it's been a really negative experience. I had different stylist each time and every one of them was in a complete mad rush and showed no interest and one of them was quite condescending to say the least. I wasn't at all happy with my hair afterwards and when its so expensive, one expects much better service. I have observed this salon to be going downhill for a few… Read Full Review

“O M F G!”

Written on: 12/08/2012

At a salon with the brand Vidal Sassoon you expect to pay good money for excellent service. If I were Beyonce I would be suing your ASS! Service was only average and I did not get offered any type of refreshment. Water would have been good, an hour later a gin would be preferred. She needed to feel the way the hair moved, touch to see how it fell, now... I LOOK LIKE I HAVE A PENIS GROWING ON MY HEAD! ARGHHHHH!! For what I got the price was extortionate, and I will always pay good money… Read Full Review

“Disappointed”

Written on: 30/07/2012

i had my hair cut 6 weeks ago by the salon director at Vidal Sassoon in Cardiff. I was charged £85 and she dressed my hair really well. A couple of days later I was still struggling with the style and it just wasn't falling properly. I rang up and they were really apologetic and invited me back in. I had it done again by the salon director (no charge) and again she dressed it so that it looked great when I left. Now it has started to grow again the cracks in the dreadful hair cut are becoming… Read Full Review

“Wish I'd Gone Sooner!”

Written on: 20/09/2011 by SalRobin (1 review written)

I decided to make a drastic change and go from long hair to a very short crop and am so glad I chose Vidal Sassoon Cardiff to take the plunge. The stylist was fantastic! I showed her one photo and she worked her magic to give me exactly what I wanted. No fuss, no stress. The colourist then worked his magic and gave me the exact colour effect I had imagined, again with no fuss and without the usual having to tone down the blonde in my hair afterwards (as I usually had to suffer at other salons)… Read Full Review

“Vidal Sassoon ”

Written on: 12/07/2011 by raksha12 (1 review written)

I had an appointment at the Sassoon salon in South Molton St. It was the worst haircut I have ever had. My hair was literally hacked and for the first time in my life I had a fringe, which does not suit my curly hair. The rest of my hair looks awful too. I didn't ask for any of it. She was a senior stylist and I guess I just trusted her. I am gutted - it will take months to grow out. Management have proved to be arrogant and brush off any criticism. Not a good way to treat customers. There is… Read Full Review

“Very disappointed. I had been ther a few times over...”

Written on: 28/09/2010

Very disappointed. I had been ther a few times over the years and was always satisfied. Unfortunately my last visit left me feeling completely ripped off. The colour was only a semi-permenant in my natural colour but must have cost about £70 and the style was shocking - long bits hanging down at the front which did absolutly nothing for my face. It was so yuk I tied it back asap. In total I paid £130 for something I could have created myself using a home dye and a pair of scissors - NEVER… Read Full Review

“I go here regularly and although I do find it pricey...”

Written on: 12/08/2010

I go here regularly and although I do find it pricey (especially if I am having a colour as well as a cut) I think it is worth it. I need to look smart and professional for my work, and the stylists always listen to me, advise me, and give me what I need. They've also given me advice on how to look after the style which is really helpful too.
I have, on occasion, decided to go somewhere cheaper, but I've regretted it. Once you find a stylist you trust, stick with them is my advice… Read Full Review
