Gary used to be my old Manager for years, when he left our salon to concentrate on his Kensington Salon, there was noeit a dry eye in the salon, from staff or clients, he is an amazing hairdresser, who was so sort after by all clients.
I know wherever he is a manager, the salon will be a relaxing place, with happy staff, who will be lucky to have ongoing training by a man who is simply brilliant.
I miss you Gary.

I lived on Ilchester Place two minutes away for 5 years and used to go and have my hair done by Gary every week. Perfect cut and color. I am back in my home country but the very first thing I do when I come to London is book an appointment with Gary and enjoy once again the expert treatments and the oh so friendly atmosphere of the salon!

After my 3rd "Lucy perm" my hair is still in great condition but I had another problem. Botox or a fringe? The fringe won and my friends have told me Gary has made me look 10 years younge. Thanks again Gary

I had coloured my hair myself(what a disaster)
My friend told me to go to Gary to sort it out.
He was great, he took time to choose the correct colour for me. I was surprised how easy Gary lifted out my bad colour and added a new shinny glossy tone to my hair and the price was fab, he did not take advantage of my bad situation
I will be going back and highly recommend the salon!

Bad hair days were becoming the norm. Enough was enough so I booked in with the owner Gary. He suggested to me a perm. A perm I'm 40 not 70!!! But it just shows you the experts know. I now have wonderfully bouncy shinny hair again. AMAZING ! Make your appointment now. All the staff are so sweet.

I spent ages looking for a hair dresser in London. After looking online and finding a couple of good reviews and being in the 'Good Salon Guide', I chose to go here. I'm not really one for writing online reviews but since I was so mislead by what I read online about this, I wanted to share my experience with others.

I thought I had chosen well and I was so, so wrong.

I shan't be using them again, since my hair looks as though i've done it myself - It was certainly not value for money. It’s quite upsetting, since I was so look forward to this. A hair cut should be a pampering experience. This was not.

There is no way I'd recommend this place, especially NOT to those under 40.

excellent service, reasonable prices, had full head of highlights & cut & blow-dry.
Gary took a lot of time discussing what colour should be used and how i wanted my hair cut.
i would certainly go back.
