Mad Lillies reviews
Terrible experience. All started off ok. Nice salon. Explained to the hairdresser what I wanted and he seemed to listen. Then was taken downstairs to get hair washed, which was all fine. All went wrong when the cut started...
The guy who was cutting my hair had a face like a slapped bum and ignored me, so I just sat there in silence while he hacked away with the sternest growl. I asked for loose curls to be put in after blow dry; as it was my birthday, I was going to go out straight after. He cut my hair for only 12 minutes and made my fringe so short it was ridiculous. He then styled it into what can only be described as the worst '90s do ever - think long version of the awful Rachel cut. I looked awful. As he'd tried and failed to curl it, I couldn't properly see the cut itself; all I knew is that it wasn't sitting right.
Went home to wash and restyle it myself, which was so irritating as I had paid for a blow dry and I was now late for my own party. Tried to style it myself and saw just how bad the cut was. There was no effort put in at all, just cheap looking quick layers like they would do in these 'dry cut for £10' salons. Except I paid £60!!
Total rip off and horrible, horrible service. Ruined my birthday as it's horrible when you've had a bad cut on your big day and I had to put my hair up. Don't use (and especially don't see Damon - worst, most miserable, incompetent hairdresser yet).

Mad Lillies has been seducing me with all her charms since 2009. I actually was there on business the first time I entered the shop but I had been looking for somewhere new ever since experiencing a 'scare-cut' at one of the central Rush salons. I agreed to try out one of the senior stylists, Savannah, and the rest is history. The wonderful atmosphere is evident the moment you set foot in the door. Karen and team, you have a great business model.

I went to this hairdresser as I have just moved into the area and I did not have time to go to my usual hairdresser in Shoreditch. I made the mistake of choosing the junior stylist/ colourist. The colour was not up to scratch and I had to ask for it to be retouched (the colourist did not mention she made a mistake). I have a fringe and it was cut too short, despite having shown a picture to the stylist.
Overall, not a positive experience. The salon is very busy but I would suggest choosing a more experienced stylist/colourist. Not worth £90 at all. I would go back to my usual next time.
On the positive side, the service is OK (except for the female receptionist who is very abrupt and looks bored all the time) and the blow dry was excellent.

I have been going to Mad Lillies for over 13 years now. That alone shows you how happy I am with this salon. Fantastically friendly yet very professional staff. I have used Jenni for colour for years and never walk out disappointed. A brilliant salon indeed!

This is without a doubt the best salon in London, with staff you're always pleased to see and stylists that cut your hair how you'd asked (take note Toni & Guy). Been a regular for 3 years now and intend to stay.

If you want to find a very friendly, very buzzy atmosphere with great hairdressers, look no further!
