Salon Review by El
Loved it! Great attention to details and helped me understand what works with my hair to get the result I want. Came out really happy and with a nice new colour and style. The massage chair at the sink definitely added to the experience. Can't think of anything that didn't go well :)

Always do a brilliant job - and are super nice with it. They use very nice hair product as it's not too harsh on the hair, as well. Lovely salon too!

Salon had a very professional setting. Felt very safe and cared for & my hairdresser was well experienced and good at giving advice that was her own opinion. Very pleased :) good staff and from what I hear they have a good management and a happy workplace which is rare. Looking forward to trying out the beauty treatments as it's most definitely a nice environment and I feel trusting that the staff would do their best to make you happy!

I saw Magda for an overall check up of my abdominal health, she began by assessing a scar I have that goes across my stomach, hip to hip. I had felt that my scar was fine and not causing my any issues but that I had a recurring hip pain that was probably unrelated as it had started 2 years after my surgery. Magda could tell that the scar was some how grabbing my hip and through fairly gentle manipulation, released it. I have now been pain free for nearly 4 months, having had hip pain daily for 9months. She sorted out my neck at the same time, I highly recommend Magda for all and any pain, she is gentle and super caring to boot....

Joheim has been cutting and colouring my hair now for over a year and a half now - and I won't let anyone else touch it again! I always leave the salon with an exceptional style perfectly suited to my hair and lifestyle. As a bonus, he is so lovely and easy to get along with and a pleasure to see! Highly recommend
Salon Review by Brigitta
Ana has been very good at teaching me shiatsu on my son who has Asperger's/ADHD. He finds it relaxing and can sleep better after the shiatsu. Its a nice bond between me and him and makes the bedtime routine special. Ana has been patient and good at explaining what we are going to do and why we do it. She has a wealth of knowledge and is happy to pass it on to parents to help their children relax. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. - Brigitta, mum, London

Arranging your daughter’s wedding day make up and hair is a pleasure but also a pressure when she doesn’t live in the area. I use Shine for both hair and beauty so I got in touch with Sandro who arranged a trial day for my daughter. The two girls were great and very professional and ,y daughter was happy. On the big day they arrived on the dot and did a fantastic job she looked beautiful! Delighted Mum. Annie J

I have been coming to Shine since the salon started, always a lovely experience, then discovered the styling powress of Cinnamen - best hairdresser ever. It's over 10 years now and still every time I come out knowing she's made my hair look perfect. She never gets bored.
Salon Review by Rachel
Great salon, always have a good cut and colour here. Nothing to do with this particular salon, but why are women and girls charged more for a hair cut? Is it the same even if the woman has short hair? Just wondering...

I regularly have Bowen therapy and Indian Head massage with Mattea. Mattea is a very lovely and calming person. I always leave her feeling more relaxed than I’ve ever felt. The Bowen therapy has helped me treat the symptoms of an old injury in my neck as it has made such a difference. The massage gets rid of all the tight spots on my back and neck and leaves me feeling like a new person.
Salon Review by Cate
Wouldn’t go anywhere else and wouldn’t let anyone other than Isabel touch my hair. She is amazing.

I rang the Newington Green Branch and asked for a Sports Massage but due to late notice and availability ended up having a a Deep Tissue Massage with Charlotte. Very glad I did as it was seriously one of the best massages I have ever had! For me it was the right balance between a massage that felt like it was doing something useful (I am training for a Marathon so my legs had been feeling the stress of having done some long runs) but being relaxing and not uncomfortable - perfect : )

I give Shine Salon a 5 Star rating, having been a customer for over two years. I have never been happier with my hair, and recently, having requested a braver move into highlights and a bolder colour, I was given exactly what I had imagined. The stylist Everton was fantastic, listened to what I wanted and gave me the look I was dreaming of. The salon is beautiful, and after a visit to Shine, you will look and feel so great that you will have to go out and show off your new look and enjoy your feel-good factor! I highly recommend this salon, go on, treat yourself!
Salon Review by Molly
I have had my hair cut by Johiem for nearly a year now and every experience has been friendly and professional. He helped me with a big restyle and has trimmed it since! He is great at listening to what I want as well as giving ideas on cuts and tips for keeping my hair healthy. He is a great asset to a wonderful salon!

Best hair cut experience! Everything from the massaging hair wash chairs to the fabulous haircut from Isabel! And there was free pastries! Never going anywhere else...
Salon Review by Becky
I have been coming to Shine for about 15 years. I mostly have Lara who is wonderful but other stylists are excellent too. The products are gentle and luxurious at the same time. Not only do they care very much and respect their customers but they are always friendly and warm. The head massages are fantastic too. I couldn't recommend them enough

I have been to the trainee group on Tuesday mornings a number of times. In the past I was always nervous to try a trainee group but a friend recommended Shine and I have to say the standard is really high. I've never been disappointed with the results. The whole team at Shine are friendly and welcoming and you know your hair is in safe hands because Sandro and the other senior stylists work so closely with the trainees. Everyone there works so hard to make sure you're happy with the cut or colour and you leave feeling as though you had first class service for half the price. I highly recommend it.

Andrew has helped me out on numerous occasions, particularly after a motor bike accident, he's listened to the problems that ive had and clearly explained the causes and the best treatment to ease my symptoms. He's extremely conscientious and professional in his approach and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Salon Review by Kim
I had the most rotten migraine for 2 days and after I couldn't take any more medication I thought I would make an appointment to see Florentina Lam-Clark for a massage. Previously I had reflexology with Flo which was amazing so I knew her healing hands might be able to help shift this migraine! I dragged myself up to Shine with the migraine where after the massage with Flo I felt totally relieved and relaxed from the pain! It was like a small miracle for me. Flo is one of those amazing human beings that have the ability to heal the mind body and soul.

Cinnamen was amazing! Very personable and accomodating-best haircut experience I’ve had in a long while. I will definitely be returning to the salon, and to Cinnamen in particular. The Church Street salon is wonderful; I was made to feel very welcome, and the whole experience from booking to service was seamless.

Ive been to Andrew for a number of years for now for various running injuries, he's always been very helpful in getting me back on track and I'd have no hesitation in recommending him.

Alex at the Newington Green location has been my go-to hair dresser since I moved to London in 2011. He always has a way of knowing exactly what you want when words escape you and I always come away feeling amazing with whatever has been done to my hair. The salon environment is so relaxing with great music, lovely tea and great magazine selection. Going to the salon is such a treat!
Thanks Amy.

I have been going to Andrew for a few years now. I have a condition that would flare up and Andrew has always been able to sort me out. He is extremely professional and always tries to fit me in if I have a last minute appointment. I would not use any other Osteopath and due to my condition I have seen others. I can not recommend him and the surroundings of his clinic enough.
