I went to shape for the first time to have my hair cut/coloured. Wayne is hands down the best hair stylist I’ve ever had.. He done such a brilliant job on my cut/colour. My hair swooshes around and has bounce at long last.. The salon is really nice too. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Super happy to have found Shape. Thank you Wayne 🙂
Thanks for the very positive review, I really appreciate it. Looking forward to seeing you again. Wayne

I visited Shape for the first time today and had a cut, blow-dry and colour by Wayne. The experience was very enjoyable. I felt in safe hands as Wayne talked me through my options with colour choices and explained his recommendations. He comes with an impressive set of awards and acknowledgements within the hairdressing industry in New Zealand. He also gave me lots of tips on how to get the best out of my hair. Thank you so much Wayne. I love what you have done and already had lots of compliments! I recommend Shape if you haven't already tried it.

After having tried a number of top salons, Wayne has been my hairdresser for a couple of years now. Wayne is different: his approach to hairdressing is creative and holistic, producing fantastic results with both cut and colour time after time. He has an impressive array or hairdressing awards and experience which shows in his work. I have recommended the Salon to a number of friends and recently gifted a cut and colour as a special treat. My daughter also has her hair done there with Jay and is delighted with his work. Give the Salon a try, you will love the results.

I’ve been a client of Wayne’s at Shape for several years now and wouldn’t go anywhere else. Wayne is a perfectionist and I’m always delighted with the finished results. I highly recommend Wayne and his colleagues at Shape. Well worth the money.

First visit to Shape and couldn’t be happier. Revamped colour and a great cut. Wayne is clearly massively experienced and knowledgeable- very safe pair of hands. I’ll be back!

Just been for my third cut since returning to SW London and I am delighted to have found Wayne. He listens, and then makes it happen! Very happy. The cut stays beautiful for several weeks. I’m sorted!

I have been a regular customer at Shape for over 7 years, and have only praise for this lovely salon. Wayne, the Creative Director, is a highly talented hair stylist, who always cuts my curly hair really well. I particularly appreciate his consistent approach, something which I have not previously experienced at other salons. Wayne is ably supported by rising star Eunice, who does my gloss colour really well. I could not recommend Shape more highly - a real gem on Teddington High Street.
Thanks Daisy for your review it’s always a pleasure to have you at the salon.

I recently had my hair cut by Wayne after a long time avoiding a trip to a salon as I’m always left disappointed with the result. I was really happy with how my cut turned out and how Wayne took time to see what was best for my hair to look good. I also got a smoothing treatment on my hair, and as someone who just looks at water and my hair frizzes, already can feel a massive improvement with the texture and condition of my hair. Would highly recommend.
