Isabel cut my hair yesterday, she did a great cut taking her time on my crazy big mop. Despite me being the last late customer in the salon she took the time needed and didn't rush (so often it gets rushed to be completed in an hour). Isabel also gave me step by step instructions of how to handle my frizz wave. Which worked this morning! Thanks best haircut and style in a long time. Especially dealing with my natural wave.

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 🙂

Calm and welcoming atmosphere. Friendly staff and really professional treatments. I can really recommend Beth Dorey's massages. They make you float on air. I keep coming back for more. Sue.
Thanks Susan, will let Beth know about your kind words, I agree, she is excellent!!!

I have been to many different hairdressing salons around London (mainly in Central London and the City) and this salon is by far the best I have found. Every member of staff you come into contact with is welcoming, friendly and professional helping you to have a really relaxed and pleasant experience. Joanna has been colouring and cutting my hair for 2 years and is absolutely fantastic - really lovely and a perfectionist in a subtle way! My colour is really even and glossy and my cut is exactly what I asked for. Thank you!
Thanks Victoria, I will pass on your kind words to Joanna, you will make her day.

I have never been happier with my hair since my appointments with Rima at Shine. The colour and cut is always exactly as I ask, and when I have new ideas or suggestions Rima is always enthusiastic, so I feel excited to experiment and confident that Rima knows what styles suit me best and how to maintain the health and condition of my hair. It is always a pleasurable experience and i look forward to every visit. I have recommended Shine to many people, and I have often been complimented on my hair after an appointment. I always recommend Shine, and I especially recommend booking an appointment with Rima. Not only is she an exceptionally talented and professional stylist, but wonderful company and genuinely cares about making customers feel their best. I'm already looking forward to my next appointment!
Thanks Amanda, we will pass on your kind words to Rima

Sarah Warman - Alexander Technique I first met Sarah about two years ago, when I went along for an introductory Alexander Technique session. I had had some previous experience of AT with another teacher some years ago, and as I was having problems with headaches and tension in my neck and shoulders, I thought it would be beneficial for me to explore it again. I felt an immediate connection with Sarah, and I was delighted to find that her unique style resonated so positively with me. I particularly like her holistic approach to her work - recognising the interconnection between our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual sides. I have not experienced AT like this before, and yet it makes so much sense, and it has been of such benefit to me. Arriving for a session with Sarah feels like stepping out of the hustle and bustle and into a peaceful oasis, where I can allow time for myself and have the space to be myself. This is hugely valuable to me in my hectic life. I would recommend Sarah wholeheartedly. She is very supportive and works with empathy and understanding. Through her, I have learned some wonderful techniques to help me through my life, and have gained so many unexpected insights. SV Classical Musician/Singer

I'm very grateful to Sarah - she helped me correct my gait abnormality. I'd spent years trying to understand why my shoes and trousers would wear out after a few weeks' wear, visiting osteopaths, foot specialists and healers. They all saw that I had a way of rotating my feet when I walked but only Sarah was able to get to the heart of the issue, which was my tendency to close up around the solar plexus area to protect myself. I think her secret is a killer combination of sound technical understanding, intuition and holistic vision.

Always impeccable! I love my local Shine. The team is fabulous both on the floor with hair and the treatments that I have experienced were gorgeous too. Jo is a favourite of mine. She usually does my hair. X

I have been going to see Sophie monthly, for nearly 4 years. Not only is she a lovely person, her work is focused, professional and dedicated. I could not recommend her enough to anyone looking for either deep relaxation or specific tailored body work.

I suffered from sciatica during my pregnancy and was recommended by my GP to have massages. I booked myself in with Sophie, and after one session I already felt so much better. With the massage and exercises that Sophie recommended my sciatica faded quite quickly.

Intuitive and sensitive are two words i would use to describe Sophie's brilliant massage skills. Never the same massage twice, she listens to what i ask for and also reads what i need once a treatment has started. Before and after the birth of my son, I've relied on her talents to relax and revitalise myself at different stages of life.

I’ve been coming to Shine for years. Yoanna is particularly excellent - from threading to luxurious facials. I wouldn’t go anywhere else and plan my schedule around her availability! Thank Yoanna.
Thanks for your kind words, I will pass them onto Yoana, she will be thrilled.
Lesley Thompson
A wonderful, friendly, welcoming place, both for hair and holistic treatments. I've always had good experiences over several years, and with a number of different stylists and therapists. My current favourite hair stylist is Vincenzo, but alas he's going back to Italy before long. Five stars also for Marta and Dovile for hair, and Sophie for massage. The experience that really stands out, though, is going through cancer treatment 5 years ago, and visiting Shine to have my hair firstly cut short, then shaved as the remains fell out due to chemotherapy, then eventually restyled as it grew back in. Throughout, everyone was unfailing kind and sensitive, and I was (and remain) so grateful to you for your support during a difficult time.
Thanks for such a lovely heart felt review Lesley, we are so proud to be able to offer support to our customers through all their life stages, difficult and joyous. Shine has become my family over the years and I am over joyed when others have a similar supportive experience.

Very good salon and welcoming staff !

I have been coming to Shine now for nearly twenty years now and the atmosphere is and always has been so friendly and relaxed. I always leave feeling so much better than when I came in and this is particularly due to Joheim, who colours and cuts my hair so beautifully, and Desi who I see for facials, waxing etc. They are both excellent, take great care and give so much. Thank you!
Charles Brockbank
I have been having my hair cut by Sandro at Shine for about the last 7 years and I love it. He's guided me from long hair to a zero on the sides. The atmosphere is always welcoming, friendly, relaxed and calm. You always come out feeling relaxed, refreshed and a whole lot sharper.
Nikki Ralph
I have been coming to Shine to have my hair cut for over 10 years and despite having not lived in Stokey for 7 years I still come to Shine. That's thanks to Cinnamen who never fails to know just what I would like and cut my hair with such attention to detail. Coupled with a lovely chilled environment and a friendly attentive team I always relish the opportunity for a couple of hours of time to relax while being well and truly looked after. The body treatments are great too, having sampled many over the years!

Shine Holistic has always been an excellent place to have beauty treatments done. Bijoya cuts my hair perfectly and I have been going to Shine now for years. I highly recommend them.
Matilde Duque
Sylvia has done 3 facials for me and they have all been amazing she is very kind and explains things very well as she is doing them. She is very friendly I will always have my facials with her thanks again Sylvia.
Thanks Matilde, I will pass on your kind words to her.
