Thanks Amanda - that's my back up plan. Just worried that will give me red and black highlights or something equally adventurous! I just want a decent reliable traditional hairdressers :huh:

Just to buck the trend, I go to a place opposite Angel station for.....£5 (just a trim but I think it's silly paying anything more.

Thanks Rachel - Please don't think I'm being rude - but did your husband really pay £36 for a hair cut?  :blink:

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Yep. He went to the barber shop opposite Safeways once (not Wayahead, the other one), paid a tenner and got scalped. They didn't listen to him, just got clippers out and literally shaved him! It took 4 months to grow into what he wanted them to cut in the first place! He has refused to go back to a barbers ever again. He used to go back to our old hairdressers in Crouch End, where we used to live (£25), but the journey annoyed him, so he went to Baccarat. He was horrified at the price, and moaned for hours, but he was really pleased with his haircut!

Well hey - maybe it's about time men started paying as much as us for a decent haircut! :P

I go to Baccarat - I get my highlights and a cut there. I think the sign of a good hairdressers is a busy one (same as restaurants) and I had a problem getting an appointment there last time so have to remember to book well in advance.

I don't have anything adventurous done, but have always been happy with the result.

Wayahead - I had a wash and blowdry there and it was £18 which I thought was quite pricey aswell. They should turn one of the estate agents into a hairdressers!

I've been to baccarat a couple of times (mainly on the back of a speical offer) and have been very pleased. Full price is expensive, but I don't know of any decent hairdresser that isn't these days!

I have tried a few Croydon hairdressers and the only one which I thought was any good is Ghost on Lower Addiscombe Road. Both my daughter and I have been there several times. They do offers, and evening openings and things, too...

Hi All

Reviving an old topic here...

I live in CP triangle. Moved here quite recently and I would love recommendations for hair stylists.

I do see lots of places in the triangle but I would be grateful if anyone could tell me who does it best and how much they charge.

Thanks in advance!

Vidya.

I'd recommend heading down the hill to Ego on Penge High Street. My wife, my daughters and I all go there - excellent stylists, good prices. Some people might be surprised to find somewhere so classy in Penge!

Hi there,

Can anyone recommend a mobile hairdresser - one who comes round to your home and therefore is a bit cheaper?

Cheers,

I'd like to know the same - particularly someone who can do a woman's and man's haircut on the same visit, both myself and Mr elleme being quite lazy about getting around to making hairdresser/barber appointments.

Hello,

I have my hair cut by Heather at Forty Seven opposite Sainsbury's. She is only open at the weekend as she also has a West End shop, but she is great. The salon is beautiful, full of nice goodies to buy. I sent my husband in there (who is receding poor thing) and Heather gave him a great cut that made him look as though he has hair. I paid 40 for my hair cut, but then have been in twice and had my fringe trimmed without charge.

40 is more than I'd normally pay, but I decided to take the plunge and give Forty Seven a try. I'm really pleased with the results, so now I think it's worth it, at least once in a while. By the way, do you remember what they charge for men's haircuts? I forgot to ask.

I'd like to add my endorsement of fortyseven. I've been going since they opened and love the cuts, the service and friendly, laidback atmosphere. My daughter had her hair cut there too (not by Heather, another stylist whose name she didn't get) and said it's the best cut she's ever had. The fringe is perfect, very hard to get right apparently!

I had a free makeup sesh there too, when they were offering them with a Cosmetics a la Carte make-up artist. At the risk of sounding like a bad and rather repetitive ad, their foundation is the best I've ever had, instant prettiness! Blimmin expensive but worth it. Just have to keep it away from daughter...
