In the 8 years since it opened, Jamie and Sally Brooks have seen their salon win the prestigious London Hairdresser of the Year Award no less than three times. Their philosophy, that beautiful hair needn't be complicated, puts the focus firmly on quality of cut and reduces the high maintenance factor.

Sophia is the most amazing hairdresser I've ever had. She never fails to make me feel great. Thank you!

I tried this salon based on a recommendation from a friend and I'm very pleased to say it was worth it! I've got really fine, hard to manage hair which I've been highlighting for years and wanted a change. I talked through some options with John who is one of the senior colourists there and kind of let him go for it. I'm so pleased with the result, he got it spot on despite my vague instructions! Caroline also did an incredible job cutting my hair and gave me some very helpful tips on how to style it day to day and what products would be best. Will be back again for sure.

Upon recommendation from a friend, I saw John for my colour and Caroline for my cut. I'm so happy with the result - they seemed to be able to interpret my ideas and listen to my concerns about my hair condition and provide a manageable solution. I've paid far more and not had service anywhere near as good, so I thought it was a bargain, especially the cut! Would happily recommend these two to anyone struggling with their hair.

Since moving to London I have regularly got my hair cut and styled by Tazmyn at Brooks and Brooks. I am extremely satisfied with her creativity and professional service. I have got good advice on how to style and take care of my hair. She has also introduced me to some very good, easy-to-use and student-affordable haircare products. My hair has never been in such good condition.

I truly recommend the salon. It is very trendy and cosy and the staff are extremely welcoming - they always have a smile on their face!

I have been seeing Sophia at Brooks and Brooks for a couple of years now and really wouldn't go anywhere else. She really understands my hair and excites me to try new things as she's really creative. Lately I have been trying this new colour technique called Baliage, which looks sooo much more natural than highlights. Would highly recommend if you colour. Brooks and Brooks has just been re-furbished and is a beautiful, trendy salon with a really buzzing atmosphere. Would definitely recommend if you enjoy being pampered and don't mind something a little bit quirky.

Brooks and Brooks offer a fantastic and very professional service. I went to them with very damaged hair and a poor colour from a previous hairdresser, and they gave great advice on hair products and different ways of styling to try and recover my hair. I would recommend all of friends to Brooks and Brooks.

I went to book an appointment after reading fab reviews on urban path. I wanted a reliable hairdresser after a previous disastrous experience. The staff are very friendly: when I booked the appointment they offered me a consultation for cut and colour; I also got a hot chocolate whilst waiting for the colourist to do the consultation! This salon has won plenty of awards and I can see why. They are the only salon I have ever seen that stocks both Kerastase and Bumble & Bumble products.

After the consultation I went for the haircut with Katie and colour with Kerrie (she works for fashion shows in London and Milan). The service was amazing and the hairdressers super competent. I also pop in now and then for a trim of my fringe and I am always impressed with the excellent service. My hairdresser of choice.

The salon is great, everyone is nice and helpful. I got a hair cut with Jamie and it is the best cut I ever had. It suits my hair type and is easy to handle. He was very nice and patient with me. I also got a hair treatment called 'permanent blow dry' with Caroline. My hair never felt better! I have frizzy hair that is very hard to manage. I've had a keratin treatment before, in Dubai, but it left my hair dull and weak, and afterwards it was falling out a lot. However, a month has passed since I had the treatment in Brooks & Brooks and my hair is easy to blow dry, shiny and healthy. Great service overall.

I have been going to Brooks and Brooks for a few years now and have had just about everything there. Valerie cuts and does my Brazilian blowdry and Kerrie does my colour. I love going and being looked after by them, and my hair always looks fantastic.

I'm mega fussy with hair, but I have to say that Brooks & Brooks is the BEST! Staff are so friendly, warm and welcoming, without being over the top. I get my hair coloured by John, who is brilliant, and cut by Ben, again amazing; Sally is amazing too, in dressing hair. All I can say is that I super-love and trust them!
