  1. Hi,

    I have been considering getting balayage highlights and wondered if you would be able to provide an approximate cost for this process and advise what is involved?

    My hair is approximately 9 inches past my shoulders.

    Please let me know if you require any further information.

    Thank you


    1. Hi Amanda, It is best that you call your local Haringtons salon so they can give you a quote or book you in for a free consultation prior to booking an appointment for you to give you the best idea of cost. All the salon numbers can be found on the individual salon pages. Hope that helps! Thanks.

  2. Hi,
    I am a mixture of asian and black so I have a soft, kinky hair. It has grown over an inch into an afro now and I was wondering if any of your trainee would like to use me as a test subject for a style they would like to try.


    1. Hi and thanks for getting in touch! Can you tell me where you live? I can then let the salon closest to you know that you would be available for a trainee model night. Thanks so much, Linzie

    1. Hi Dee
      What a shame! We will get that sorted for you and get your colour notes sent to you as soon as possible.
      Good luck with the move.

  4. Hi there,
    I am getting married at Winchester College this July and am interested in getting my hair done with you guys. Just have a few questions:
    How long prior to the big day do I have to do the trial?
    Are you able to travel to the college on the day? (I will be staying there the night before.)
    Also, I am of Asian background and would like to know if you have experience working with our hair textures (My hair is chest length but it is quite fine and I don’t have much hair)?
    Appreciate the help!

    1. Hi
      Thanks for getting in touch. The Winchester salon suggest that you give them a call and pop in for a complimentary consultation in the next few weeks so that you can discuss your requirements, they can advise who the best stylist for your day is and work out all the relevant timings. Their number is 01962 850850. We hope you enjoy your big day!

  5. Hi Emma

    I have been having my shoulder length hair highlighted (bleached) for almost 20 years and would like to change it to a light brown. I was wondering if it is possible to change the colour in one appointment or would I need to do it gradually. Can you please let me know which service I need to book in for as I want to go ahead with this in the London salon?


    1. Hi Michelle. You can certainly change the colour in one appointment, but we always suggest that another appointment is needed about 3 weeks afterwards to top it up and lock it in ensuring the best colour change possible. Please give the salon a call to book in if you would like to go ahead. Nick the manager has been advised of your requirements and is looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks for getting in touch.

    Many thanks

  13. Hi
    My wife covers her hair but would like to have her hair cut & styled.

    I just wanted to know if you have a private room or area or if there are times when other men are not present for her to have her hair done?

    She has been going to a Salon in London but time & distance is an issue so we are seeking a more local Salon.

    Many thanks


    1. Hello Abs,

      Thank you for your message. Our Northwood, Reading and Maidenhead salons offer a service for clients who wish more privacy when having their hair cut and/or coloured.

      Thank you,

  14. I am a new customer to Haringtons in Southampton, after being recommended by a friend who is an existing customer.
    After being a cancer patient and losing my wonderful long hair, I was very impressed with Andy who I was introduced to, who made me feel both relaxed and happy, and extremely confident with what I was being told. All the procedures were explained to me fully. This is very important, after having bad hair salon experiences in the past. In all a very good initial consultation, I am now looking forward to my appointment in the new few weeks.

  15. I’m going to a wedding on the 4th July 2015 (I’m the grooms mother). Do you have an appointment on that date around 9.00am as the wedding starts at 12.30. I have long blonde highlighted hair and i would like my hair down but in a wedding style. Could you also tell me what the fost would be and if you could fit me in. I look forward to hearing from you.
    Best wishes

    1. Hi June. May I ask which of our salons are you looking to visit? I will then get the relevant receptionist to give you a call to arrange.

  16. Hi,

    I’m looking for a hairdresser who can do braids/box braids with extensions on caucasian hair?

    With thanks in advance,

  18. Hello,

    1. Hi Sue,
      Thank you for your message. I have spoken with your technician at Marlow this morning and she has released your colour guidance notes. I will email them through to you today.
      Have a lovely year abroad!

    1. Thanks for getting in touch about our Blow Dry service. We do offer this in Windsor – click here to find out more : As each service is very dependent on the individual, can I suggest that you pop into the salon or call 01753 832282 to book a consultation and get a quote? Thanks so much!

  21. What an amazing place.

    I went through a huge colour transformation and the girls were great. The colour took longer than originally thought, however Mari was so diplomatic and I can honestly say that I have never been more delighted with the result.

    Thank you all!

  22. Hi,
    I was hoping that someone would be able to contact me so that I can send some pictures of my hair situation… I had a colour change this Saturday, and it looks a mess! I am hoping that someone in Maidenhead would be able to help me out without damaging my hair. Please advise….

    Many thanks in advance

  23. Hi there

    My friend told me about Harringtons in Soho about five years ago. What a treat. I am so grateful for the consistent friendly and professional services you provide. I always feel welcome, I can get an appointment at short notice and it is friendly. The staff are al professional. I often have my hair cut by student cutters and their service is fantastic. Thanks!


    1. Thanks for your comment Catherine! We’re so glad you enjoyed your experience at Haringtons, Soho and look forward to seeing you again soon.

  24. Had my hair cut done by John, both time absolutely beautiful job, but second time, every single person either at work or family members they’ve asked who done this beautiful job,
    Thank you John

    1. Hi Sonia. We certainly do. Have a look under our Services drop down menu and you’ll see not only Hair Extension information but lots more about the great services Haringtons offer. For more information a consultation or quote, please call the salon. Many thanks!

  25. Hey, I wondered if you could give me some advice. I recently dyed my hair with the intention for it to go reddy brown, but it has gone a very dark plum and I absolutely hate it. I just want it to be a chestnut colour, lighter and more golden brown. Is there any thing your salon could do to help me change the colour? It is fair too dark and it doesn’t suit me. I would consider stripping it, if that is the only option. If so how much? My hair is quite short, almost shoulder length and very fine.

    1. Thanks for getting in touch. We do specialise in colour correction however the only option is to call your local Haringtons salon to book in for a consultation so they can assess your hair condition and your colour options – they’ll also be able to give you a price. You can find all the telephone numbers online under the Salons dropdown menu – I hope that helps and that we can help you get the colour you want.

  26. Hi,

    First time in harringtons Maidenhead. My stylist Robert was great!!! It was a joy to have some style advice as my hair is very thick! Overall experience was amazing and I can be sure I will be returning there from now onwards as I have been with my original hairdresser for 5 years and wish to experience some change. I will defiantly be recommending Maidenhead harringtons to my friends and family.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind comments! We’ll certainly pass them on to Robert and the Maidenhead team and look forward to seeing you back in Maidenhead soon.

  27. Hi-my hair has been the source of much stress all my life!! It is naturally curly/frizzy, but does not fall in ‘proper’ curls. If I straighten it or blow dry it, it soon become just a straight frizz that resembles candy floss more than human hair. I have spent endless amounts of time and money on conditioning treatments over the years, but it is at its healthiest when I leave it alone as much as possible. Unfortunately this approach does not give me a very good ‘look’. I need a good cut to enhance its natural curl, but also a flattering style to give my face a better shape! I have an important event coming up, when I would like to look smart, but my hair always lets me down. I feel I need someone who really understands my hair type to get it right. Can you help?

    1. Thanks so much for getting in touch. I wonder if you could tell me where you are based? I can then get in touch with the nearest Haringtons salon to you and either see if they can make suggestions by email, or book a complimentary consultation for you. We offer KeraStraight, which is an amazing hair smoothing treatment, in our Marlow, Reading, Beaconsfield, Henley, Maidenhead, Southampton, Wendover, Winchester and Windsor salons and another similar service called L’Kerabelle in Wokingham. Both of these have been designed to repair, smooth and renew and will leave your hair feeling healthy, straighter and stronger for up to four months. One of our managesr has KeraStraight done regularly. She has naturally curly, unruly hair which is now glossy and gorgeous – she swears by it! Anyway, do let me know where you are what you’d like to do and if you’d like to pop in and talk to one of our technicians or stylists as we’d be delighted to help you.

  28. Hi. I had my hair cut by a trainee the other night and I am very pleased with it. Thank-you. While I was there I learnt a lot about hairdressing and how much you have to learn to be a hairdresser! One of the trainees was doing a wash and a blowdry and I was wondering if there are any free slots for my Mum to have this done by a trainee too as a treat for her 🙂

    1. Hi Sarah, As you know our trainees are trained to the highest standards and are supervised throughout so these trainee cuts and blow dry’s are done to a high level. We’re always looking for good models for our trainees so please do pop into the salon or call them to see if they have any spaces for a trainee wash and blow dry.

  29. Thankyou to vicki for cutting my hair so well and advising me on what products to use on my hair to give a better finish

    1. Hi Angela – thanks for your comment. We aim to make your experience not only great in the salon, but also something you can continue yourself at home. Thanks again! From the Haringtons Team x
