I'll be honest. I'm a tough customer to please when it comes to getting my hair cut. I won't always vocalise when I'm unhappy because, well, what's the point, by the time it's been cut - the hair's gone already.
However, I can honestly say that I left Feel after my first appointment genuinely happy. My stylist was Stelios, and I was concerned at first as he spoke little English and I had specific request with my hair that I struggle getting even the most literate of stylists to understand, however Stelios got what I wanted - spot on.
I always take a photo in with me to hairdressers, and it never really comes out looking like the photo - but in this case I'm satisfied. Stelios has a good knowledge of colour and could see ways that my hair style could be improved to achieve the look I wanted.
One of my main criticisms with hairdressers is that I often leave with dye on my forehead or ears. Stelios was really attentive and said that he would never let anyone leave with dye on their skin as he wouldn't want to discourage people, especially men from using colour.
I would say that first impressions won't convince you that Feel is going to be a great experience, it has a basic layout, an almost non-existent waiting area and a quite temporary-looking Reception/Cashier desk - however, it almost adds to its charm as you begin to realise that those aesthetic elements aren't really as important as the care and customer service that your stylist provides and in this case I can't fault Stelios.
I think I've found my new hairdressers.
