Scott at Clipso Watford is incredible

Went to get my first haircut since chemotherapy at clipso watford. Scott was wonderful and spent a lot of time with me and made me feel and look great. Thankyou so much. Great service xx

I saw Lauren for colour and Simon for my cut. Both did exactly what I asked for and I left feeling very pleased with my darker colour and fantastic cut. However, after a few days I realised that I'd made a mistake and I wanted to be blonder again. They told me to come in and they would rectify. I saw Lauren again and was embarrassed that I had made the mistake but both she and Simon put me at ease and she did my colour perfectly and at no cost. They made me feel that they really cared that I was happy. Terrific and skilful hairdressers and I will definitely be back!

Fantastic salon!

I have tried a few salons in my life and I have rarely been this happy with the result. I recently moved to St Albans and had once again to change my salon and I am so glad I did! I always end up with the same hair cut because I never know what to ask for and what would suit me. Simon was extremely friendly and helpful, he suggested a haircut then he showed me how to style my hair, and it looks absolutely brilliant ! He also advised on hair color and what I could go for . I went back a week later for highlights and again the result was amazing ! I love it ! It makes such a huge difference to see they take great care of their clients from start to finish, making the whole experience more personal and special ! Thank you Clipso

Wonderfully brilliant

About to go into Chemotherapy I panicked about what to do with the impending hair loss. I had very long hair. I read about a woman that went to Simon at Clipson and how he cut her hair so beautifully and all throughout her Chemotherapy, and for free. I plucked up the courage and went and saw him. What should have been a very emotional time for me, turned into laughter and light. He is full of compassion, kindness and so well organised. I was taken upstairs, out of the public eye which immediately eased my anxiety. We chatted about life and simple things. He was cutting my locks to save them in order for me to have them made into a hair piece. I was completely amazed at the initial short cut he gave me. The first words out of my 4 year sons mouth were, I love it! Those were the only tears I cried. From then on I went from complement to complement and will never go back to long hair again. He styled it so well. Simon offered to see me throughout my therapy until my hair was at a point that I could manage it alone. His team are friendly and kind. I would highly recommend Simon. Thank you Simon and Clipson, for making a really difficult time that much easier.

My confidence back!

Thank you so much Lisa for rescuing my hair today! I feel fantastic and am amazed by the miracle you worked in just one visit. I can't wait for you to sort my colour out too. You're a great stylist but also made me feel welcome. Thanks to all the team who made my visit so good. You're very professional without being clinical. Excellent! Looking forward to my next appointment.
