I'm in urgent need of a haircut and fancy treating myself to a couple of face/body treatments as well.
As I don't have time at the moment to spend half a day getting my hair done for a fiver at Toni & Guy's Academy, I have done a search on the forum and found a couple of recommendations for good value hairdressers - the Cut Studio (Waterloo Road), Revival (Tower Bridge Road) and SE1 Hair and Beauty (Bermondsey Street) were both discussed in a positive light - but these were very old threads and I was wondering if they are still highly recommended. Also what sort of prices are we talking?
As for beauty treatments, I discovered The Salon (underneath Hay's Galleria) yesterday - does anybody know if they're any good? They seem quite a bit cheaper than the Stress Exchange for most things. Cheaper still is the Miami health club on OKR, can anybody recommend the treatments there?
Any alternative recommendations would be welcomed. Decent value and a pleasant experience is more important than plain old "cheapness".
Though I work in SE1 I actually live in north Camberwell, so please feel free to recommend places in SE17 or SE5 (though I'm white, and my impression is that the majority of hair salons in the area are aimed at black women).
For hair, I've just located a thread from earlier this year which raves about Malishi on Snowsfields. Not the cheapest but not bad, price-wise. If they're as good as many of you say, I might pop round there after work and see if they can fit me in next week...
I go to Malishi Hair Design regularly (have my hair cut by Takashi) and can thoroughly recommend it. While washing your hair they give you a very nice head massage, which might double up as one of your beauty/body treatments!
I have no connection other than being a satisfied customer for the last year or so.
Back to the question of face and body treatments, one place I've found is Bridges (on St Thomas Street next to the tanning parlour) - has anybody tried them? Their prices are on a par with others in the area for most things, but substantially lower for manicures and pedicures.
Hi I'd be interested to know about the treatments too, I can also add another recomendation for Malishi who are lovely and do great cuts, tho I had one bad experience where I wasn't happy with the colour they gave me - may have been poor communication on my part (i said "I don't want stripes" but I think they just heard "stripes")but I now go to The lounge near Bermondsey tube for colour and the chap there is great - really listens to what you want, prices are pretty much the same.
