Joheim Self-employed

Born in Egypt of Somali native parents, Joheim spent the majority of his childhood in Canada.  Moving between Romania, Switzerland and Pakistan to name a few countries, he has finally settled and has called London home for the past 16yrs.

From a mental health background, originally training as a nurse, Johiem brings all the qualities attributed with this background. Patience, understanding and the ability to see beyond the salon chair and offer advice and guidance when it comes to bespoke style and tailor made cuts to suit your life style.

Johiem has a keen interest in fashion, enjoys travelling with his partner of 10yrs and cooking. He has a flair for colour and highlights and loves to work with all hair types especially textured hair and curls.

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!

I started going here initially for proximity but now I go because the staff and atmosphere are lovely. Johiem in particular is amazing (I don't really want to recommend him so publicly in case I can't get booked in with him anymore!), he has intuition and talent by the bucketload and is great at putting you at ease.
Thank you for the kind words, Johiem will be very happy to hear them.

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

I've been going to Shine for a couple of years, and am delighted to have found a salon I actually look forward to visiting. The atmosphere is relaxed, unpretentious and professional. The chairs you sit on for a shampoo give you a massage, which is a treat. Joheim colours and cuts my hair. He is talented, creative, interested and interesting. My 4 year old granddaughter (whose fringe he trims) informed me that he was "the best hairdresser in the whole world", and I agree with her. My experience with the beauticians I have met : Desi, Francesca and Faye, has also been excellent. I highly recommend this salon.
Thanks Perrine, I will pass on your kind words to Joheim and the team.
Salon Review by Sarah
I've been coming to Shine for over a decade, including since relocating to the SW. Today I was blown away by Johiem's skills, on so many levels. My 7yr old son is highly sensitive, incuding some sensory sensitivity, particularly with haircuts, I'm usually holding my breath when it's that time. We were in town this time & I thought we'd just break the routine (big risk) and see if Shine could help. What happened was quite extraordinary (for a Mum whose been holding breath, necessarily, over haircuts since haircuts began). My son felt so safe and at ease with Johiem, who was so gentle and easy, they just chatted, like you do (like he's never done before), and he ENJOYED it - that's above and beyond hairdressing with quite a bit of personal magic. I cannot thank you enough for that work, or for the lovely reception team who I spoke to and helped out so smoothly. Heartfelt thanks from one made-up Mumma.
Thanks Sarah, I will pass on your high praise to Johiem and the team. Many Thanks.

I've been coming to Shine every few months for the past year now, and thanks to stylist Joheim always leave with a great cut and in a good mood. Despite moving home to further away from the salon, I still come back every time I need a trim, and will continue doing so.
Salon Review by Catherine
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!
