I regularly have my hair cut with Stu, and every time it's a great experience. He's attentive and excellent at getting the colour right. I'm extremely picky and he always delivers something great. I've recommended him a lot and everyone comes away feeling good, and having had a great haircut. The salon staff are friendly and helpful - it's close to the station so easy to find. It's been around and you can see the reason why. Solid service, worth the money. I can't comment on the other stylists as it's only Stu who I trust to do my hair. He's been doing it a long time, and has a lot of experience. He seems to genuinely want to make you feel good about your hair and will go out of his way to make sure it's something I like, and will suit me. If you're not sure about something - he'd rather you tell him so he can explain or change, and won't do something which will make you look stupid, or that your hair won't respond to. Great hairdresser.

I went here for a Carey Mulligan/Anne Hathaway inspired pixie cut to donate my hair to charity. The service was incredible. They made me feel so welcomed and as if nothing was too much trouble, all the staff were exceptional in their attentiveness and made me feel so relaxed even though having such a huge change was rather nerve-wracking! Of course, a huge shout out to Sam who cut my hair beautifully and who I cannot thank enough for being so patient, understanding but most of all a complete genius with a pair of scissors! I would recommend anyone go here - 10/10

Hi Linda, I am so sorry about the way you feel about your haircut, and I know that Ellie will feel the same. As a team we always endeavour to send clients out smiling. Sadly on this occasion we failed, but would ask you to give me a call at the salon and if you feel able, to please come in and I will personally rectify the haircut free of charge and hopefully send you away happy Best regards Ian

As a new client I was extremely happy with the whole experience. Ian cut my hair beautifully taking time and trouble to get the style just right. Annita coloured my hair and it looks great! I would thoroughly recommend The Point and look forward to my next visit.

i came in yesterday in the morning to have a colour with stu and was having a lovely birthday until i got home and saw how much my colour wasn't what i wanted!! i even said that the colour doesn't look like how i wanted when sitting in the chair but stu said that if i wanted to go lighter i can next time!! Maybe you should have gotten the grey colour tester right that you showed me before you put the colour on. I've woken up thinking that if i slept on it it would be better, it really isn't. i should have known that it would be bad as someone came in and complained when i was there. According to stu you cannot put lighter colour over darker colour, then maybe you should invest in some colour b4 to take off the colour back to natural and then put the RIGHT colour on. I was looking for a cool ash, with a natural, soft gradient (the EXACT words i used to describe what i wanted) i now look like one of the million dirty blondes running around brighton when i wanted something different and more ash grey then dirty blonde. i even tipped stu 10% as i felt bad for his family situation which i am now regretting. i now have to go spend more money at an actual good hairdressers to get a colour correction which i know isnt going to be cheap. i guess the reviews on here are correct where people have said the same thing. this is why i dont go to hairdressers as they dont listen. No wonder your shop is placed out of the way as people just shouldnt go there!

Hi Maria I am saddened to read about your experience at the salon yesterday, about how you feel, and your general unhappiness with the final result. Stu is a top rate stylist, and I know he is saddened by this also. As a company we invest highly in our colour training and our Wella colours are of premium quality. I would really like it if you would come back as soon as you can, to give us the opportunity to correct your hair to get the desired result. I personally would like to be part of the consultation with Stu or if you prefer another senior colourist could carry out the correction. Without being part of the original consultation I do not know what was said or discussed, but I can only emphasise to you that our intentions are professional, honourable and we want more than anything else to have that opportunity to correct this and send you away happy. Please get in touch as soon as possible. Kind regards Ian Habben Salon Director

I made a last minute appointment at The Point and had my long hair that was not in the best condition cut into a long bob by Ellie. Everyone seemed nice and Ellie did a great job, I think my hair looks lovely. I will be going there again next time I need a haircut.

Terrible. Had my hair cut and coloured with awful result. Took over 2 hours to beach my roots and leave me with patchy, streaky colour. Complained at the time but still charged full price. Only offered to try to re-bleach. Never, never, never again. So disappointed.
