Client CommentsDevina Tiurma19:00 22 Sep 21A very professional place. I am pleased with the experience and my new haircut. I love the cleanliness and the soothing atmosphere. Getting a haircut at a new place can be daunting for me, but the stylist, Victoria was able to give a nice and elaborated consultation throughout the process. She took her time to ensure that I was comfortable throughout the process and helping me to get the haircut I wanted. I would totally come back and recommend this to my friends.Viv Yau13:31 04 Sep 21You know when people say ‘friendly staff’; I feel like I have to really stress just HOW welcoming the staff were. So attentive, from the receptionist to the stylists. Sometimes I feel anxiety going to a new salon because you never know how the vibe will be; so I was put at ease straight away. Really took their time with me, and I had an amazing head massage too. I love the small touches like their branded chocolates with their drinks and also the fact that their toilets have been designed by a local artist showing manchester. Small touches make up to big impressions! Oh and my haircut was lovely too, Lara listened to exactly what I wanted from the cut to the styling! Back again soon for my colour :)Enzo Mezatni21:39 26 Aug 21Changing hairdresser is never an easy thing, But today my fears were put to rest thanks to Helen and her expertise. Professional, welcoming and kind, I was put into the right hands. Very happy to have found my new hairdresser and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an excellent hair salon.Beth Harland17:52 26 Jul 21An amazing, unpretentious, friendly and professional salon. Rebecca is amazing and my hair has never looked better! I've never quite been happy with the way my curls have been cut before but after a few visits here its thicker and looks healthier and shiny. Would definitely recommend.Kim Rowley13:20 24 Jul 21I hadn't had my hair cut in a very long time and had struggled to find a good hairdresser. My friend recommended Melissa Timperley and I'm so glad she did. I really appreciated all the covid precautions. Victoria was fantastic with letting me know everything she was doing, letting me know about the products she was using and I felt the consultation was very professional. The cut was amazing and I felt like she really listened to me. I cant recommend this salon enough, this will definitely be my new salon!!Chantelle Lloyd16:38 16 Jul 21I went there today and had a haircut by Lara (I think that’s right, sorry if not). She was so lovely and talked me through every step of cutting my curly hair!! She made sure I was okay throughout the whole hour and honestly made me so happy I finally let someone else other than myself do my hair!! So happy. Thank you!Lizzy Booth15:32 16 Jul 21Helen was my stylist and she was absolutely amazing. I was not 100% sure exactly what I wanted to do and she worked with and made sure I was happy every step of the way. The outcome absolutely exceeded expectations. She is an absolute star.Samantha Fernandes10:49 30 Jun 21Had my first appointment here today and I've come out of the salon feeling like a million dollars! I was booked in with Helen and she did such a wonderful job with layering my lockdown locks. She was so friendly, approachable and we had a great chat while getting my hair done. I wasn't completey sure what I wanted, just had a vague idea but she guided me through what would best suit me and she could not have been more right! This salon is worth every penny, please don't compromise and go to this salon :)Fiona Lovatt11:56 29 Jun 21Brilliant re-style with Joe at Melissa Timperley. Joe took time to really understand what I was looking for, and took real care with the cut. He did an absolutely fantastic job and I am delighted with the result. I will definitely be going back.Liis T.06:16 20 Jun 21I had my first time appointment at the salon yesterday. I was booked in with Victoria and enjoyed my visit and the cut I was given. Atmosphere in the salon was really nice- professional and calm. I booked myself in for another appointment at the end of the summer and I am looking forward to that experience as well. Lovely staff, fantastic products(a vegan range too), and situated in a good spot in Northern Quarter.Alex Mclaren17:47 04 Jun 21Helen did a fantastic job, she's a brilliant colourist. I wasn't sure about what style / look I wanted but she was really good and guided me through and the result is great, really liking the look Thanks so much Helen xRachel Ward19:01 25 Apr 21Don't compromise on your dream hair, use Melissa Salons ! I've been three times now, first for a big hair transformation from brunette to red head. The discussion of my colour was thorough and involved several stylist to make sure we were all on the same page, including Melissa. I've heard a lot of horror stories from friends visiting salons and I wanted to do my research before committing to the change. The reviews spoke for themselves. The team are so professional and friendly. Prices are more than fair considering the outstanding quality and perfect experience. Don't be afraid to speak up here, if something is not right say and it will be sorted. Lara is amazing and nails the cut and colour every time, thank you for making me feel so great, especially after lockdown!Abby Gaynor08:59 24 Apr 21First visit to this salon, unfortunately the stylist I was booked in with had to self isolate. Melissa contacted me personally and had rearranged my appointment within 2 days. Great service, great cut & friendly staff. Ive already rebooked for my next cut and colour too.Louise Hickey19:15 13 Apr 21Only been here once to get my hair cut then lockdown struck again. Going back for my second visit. Great haircut and lovely staffToria Brightside19:59 07 Feb 21Melissa and her team have done cut and colour work for the models at my Manchester agency, the knowledge that their hair is in trustworthy hands is so important to us all. Everyone raves about how much they appreciate the quality and longevity of the styles done at the salon. Melissa is devoted to her craft, and is always a pleasure to book in with.Emma Mulholland19:53 03 Nov 20I've never felt compelled to leave a review for a hairdresser before but Joe gave me my favourite hair cut ever! This was my first time at Melissa's and now I wouldn't go to any other hair salon. Joe is really attentive to detail, gave me some great hair tips and was lovely to chat to. If you go, I'd highly recommend booking Joe!! The lady on reception is also very friendly and welcoming. Looking forward to coming back xxxRachel Finnegan10:26 23 Oct 20First time at MT Salons and I cannot recommend it enough! From start to finish, my experience was perfect and I will be coming back. I had a Ladies Cut with Victoria and at each stage she made sure to thoroughly check her work, show me how my cut looked and listen to my requests. She was an absolute star! The salon is immaculate and all the extra measures in place are clear and efficient. There really is nothing to fault 🥰Racheal Boyce09:28 18 Oct 20Melissa Timperley is THE best hair salon in Manchester. Melissa is my hairdresser and she is the most professional,attentive,kind woman I know.Not to mention a colour Master. I always feel special from arriving to leaving the salon. The atmosphere is sophisticated and relaxing.The vibe chilled yet trendy. The decor is amazing and every single member of the team genuinely lovely. If your looking for the very best this industry has to offer book you wont be disappointed ❤Lava Yuki20:33 17 Oct 20I went for the first time here after seeing that they had won some awards and also checking out their instagram, which had really nice hair colour works, and I must say I was very impressed. The stylist I had was Lauren and she took the time to do a proper consultation and give recommendations on style and colour. She also did a fantastic job with my highlights and colour, and got rid off all the black roots and brassy yellow on the lengths of my hair. I liked the way she packed the highlights tight and to the very root, so my pink colour came out beautifully. The staff are all very friendly, and the salon is very clean. MT is probably the best salon I have ever been too, as many salons I have been to before just never get my colour right like here. They are very popular though, so it's best book a few weeks in advance. Overall excellent.Adam Nicholls07:34 28 Sep 20Highly recommended for a man's cut I've previously been going to a barbers but this really is a couple of steps up, I really could see the difference in detail and will be returning.Rachel McLean06:56 28 Sep 20I had two consultations before having a big change to my colour. Helen discussed all options with me and we decided on a plan together! I felt a bit nervous on the big day ( of changing my colour!), but Helen was so reassuring and so knowledgeable and explained every step to me so I quickly relaxed. I absolutely love my new hair! Oh, and this salon is fully on the ball with PPE and Covid awareness. Thank you Helen!Lauren Keating11:26 23 Sep 20Victoria was professional and personal, all you could want from a hairstylist. The shop abided with government guidance on Covid-19 restrictions and more. Cannot wait to go back!Halima Benzdira19:37 08 Sep 20I have been today to Melissa's saloon for the first time. I am a lady who fears cutting her hair and who s been growing it for more than 4 years. I had a fabulous cut and blowdry with Izzy. She was so professional and sweet. She listened to what I wanted (my English was not that good) and she has been so patient. All in all I highly recommend the saloon and all the staff as they all lovely and friendly and this is what we look for as customersA Google User12:41 07 Sep 20The team at this salon are so friendly and welcoming. Absolutely love my hair cut & colour! Looking forward to my next appointment. Thank you Rebecca for your care and attention 😊😊😊xNatalie Thompson07:48 05 Sep 20I have been going to Melissa Timperley for a few years now and have never had a bad experience, all the staff are lovely and I am made to feel welcome on each visit. Everyone I come into contact with takes their time to make me feel valued, I recently went to the salon and wondered how it would feel with all the covid-19 precautions in place. I felt completely safe and relaxed throughout my whole appointment, Melissa has always gone above and beyond to make her salon feel and look professionally but still offer a friendly experience and this has not been changed by the procedures in place. Due to availability I had an appointment with Joe rather than Melissa on my last visit, it's never easy to change hairdresser especially when you love how the person you usually see does your hair. Joe did not disappoint, I'm very happy with how he cut my hair and have received the same lovely comments from people since getting it done. Joe also offers the same warm and friendly experience I've come to expect from this salon and as always I felt listened to and left with exactly the style I had wanted. I cannot recommend this salon enough, thanks to all the MT team for all your hard work and dedication.Jenny O'Sullivan13:51 04 Sep 20I was recently back at Melissa Salons for a hair cut, which was done by Joe. As always amazing a warm welcome on arrival, amazing service and the most beautiful results. I wont go anywhere else now. Thanks again MT Salons xE S18:24 28 Aug 20I'm really fussy with choosing the right salon to get my hair done and I'm so glad I chose Melissa Timperley after doing a lot of searching! I had a balayage, tone, and cut with Lauren who was really professional and did an amazing job - exactly what I asked for. Highly recommend this salon and any of their stylists, they also have loads of Covid safety measures in place and the salon is spotlessMolly Kemp11:09 23 Aug 20Really great experience! Lovely staff, I had Lauren and am obsessseed with my hair cut!Vibina Narayan12:40 22 Aug 20Trust your head with Rebecca! Extremely professional and very thorough with her work. I'll definitely come back to this salon and ask Rebecca for my next hair cut as well ❤Zoe Waite09:20 06 Aug 20I have been a customer as Melissa Salons a few times now. Each with a different stylist, which may I add, I would never have done previously with other salons. I can do this at this salon because, the quality off all staff members there are exceptional. This makes is extremely easy when booking an appointment on my limited calendar. You instantly feel at ease, they all listen properly to what you want and give their professional advice back to you. They put their time out for you, so you don't feel a hindrance when you may want something more than a cut and finish. At Melissa Salons, I have had the opportunity to have fun with my hair and experience new looks. I don't think I could have done this at another salon as I trust this salon so much. To finish off this review, my final point is, this salon goes above and beyond to make you feel part of a community. They host entertaining evening events and upload helpful tutorials for you at home, that make you feel like you have professional guidance even though you're not physically in the salon. Thank you Melissa Salons xFederica Signorini17:50 05 Aug 20I travel for work and live abroad but I wait until I'm back in Manchester to get my hair done here because I know that they will understand exactly what I'm after in cut and colour. The salon has done an incredible job making it operational and safe post-lockdown. I cannot leave a more glowing review. Their attention to every detail is just so wonderful and my visit there was the most relaxing morning of the past 6 months. I absolutely recommend visiting not only for their amazing skills but also because after your visit you just feel so good and confident in yourself! All the staff are so friendly, warm and welcoming.Janet Woolley19:40 30 Jul 20I have never visited this salon before but felt very comfortable with the arrangements made for social distancing and hygiene in general. And more importantly I love my hair! Thank you Rebecca!Roseanne19:45 17 Jul 20Been looking for a salon for a while now as i couldn't seem to find anyone who could do balayage the way i wanted. I was nervous at first due to waiting months because of Lockdown. My hair was a mess! My stylist i had Helen..knew exactly what i wanted,she went through everything to make sure it was perfect. My first time at this salon and ive already rebooked. Everyone was so friendly and the salon looks great. Thank you again. I've finally got my colour I wanted xAshley Bird20:40 07 Jul 20My post lockdown hair is now looking fabulous thanks to Melissa! I went for a change and was a little nervous but I shouldn’t have been because the colour is absolutely perfect, the cut is beautiful, I love it! Can’t thank Melissa enough and would definitely recommend a visit if you’re after an all round excellent hair experience!Samantha Bell18:05 21 Mar 20Amazing haircut at Melissa Timperley. Never known a hairdresser to take such a considered, technical approach to creating the perfect cut! The salon was welcoming, my haircut is perfect and I can actually style it myself at home exactly as it was cut. Couldn't recommend more.Despoina-Elvira Karakitsiou22:50 17 Mar 20Best hair salon ever! From my very first visit (April 2018) until today, I always feel welcome at MT salons. From the reception girls (who are always so kind and smiley) to the amazing stylists (especially Faye, who is my hair saviourMaria M.16:15 19 Feb 20This is the hair salon where you get your hair done the way you want it. Girls are amazing, they listen to you and they make real time for you. No rushing or skipping to another customer. They also take advice from each other, which I think is brilliant because everyone sees colours differently and I feel specially looked after. And of course they make a lovely cuppa too 😁Kaleb Ells10:36 24 Jan 20Great cut, superb service, brilliant building. SERVICE: - Polite, warm & kind. - Staff welcomed me in, offered drinks, were attentive & earnest. - Helpful & attentive when asking about styling.

Would highly recommend!Laura22:13 18 Jan 20First time visiting the salon and Rebecca did an amazing job on my hair. So happy with the results. Definitely found my new hairdressers!Sam Hendo13:30 04 Nov 19Came in for a men’s consultation and haircut with Sara and I came out with a smile beaming across my face. It’s my 30th this week and wanted to have a hair cut to remember. The haircut is incredible, the staff are incredibly friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. Couldn’t have paid and booked for a follow up quicker. Highly recommended!Taz .12:53 02 Nov 19I had a gents cut by Faye and it was probably the best hair cut i ever had in Manchester. It was exactly like i wanted, it was quick, efficient and very professional. I highly recommend this salon and im definitely coming back.Emmi Bowles18:51 29 Oct 19The team at Melissa Timperley made me love my hair again and really boosted my confidence. I had a cut and balayage and I'm never going back to box dyes ever again! This will be my new regular salon from now on. I've never felt more in love with my hair.Sofia Izquierdo Sanchez17:03 20 Oct 19Very nice service and team. Lara was very helpful giving me advice, and I am very please with my haircut! I will definitely come back.LAURA WALTERS16:36 22 Sep 19I absolutely love Melissa Timperley Hair Salon. I have tried numerous salons and hair dressers but none even come close. The salon has a beautiful relaxing but executive feel to it. All the staff are super friendly, polite and professional and make you fee so welcome and special. I have had my hair done by a few of the stylists and they have all been brilliant. They are so knowledgable and take the time to establish what you want from your cut &/ colour. The attention to detail and precision when it comes to the cut and colour is second to none. I have never had my hair done elsewhere where they have taken as much time and care over my hair. This is the place to go and you wont regret it!Lauren O10:12 21 Sep 19What a fabulous salon with the loveliest stylists. The standard is so high and so much care is taken to give you the hair you want. What a lovely experience and thank you so much to Lara who cut and styled my hair beautifully!Natalie Griffiths12:22 17 Sep 19Very warm & welcoming salon, with friendly staff who make you feel at home. I was impressed with the level of discussion beforehand - Lara really wanted to understand the look I wanted to achieve and made some great styling suggestions throughout. She did a perfect job.Ghada Al-fattni03:23 14 Sep 19I had my hair cut there yesterday with Lara. She was nice, patient and she did very well. The only thing that I would like to mention is that, in the leaflet and the website it says the hair cut includes hair mask or conditioning but there they said you have to pay extra if you want to do the mask. I would prefer if these things are clear in the website and in the leaflet.Monica Rinaldi11:28 07 Sep 19Absolutely amazing! When I went for the first time, I had an haircut. The stylist used several products on my hair, explaining me the role of each, and my hair become soft and brilliant ! Moreover, the stylist was very nice and kind, open while doing her amazing work on my hair. Also, they seem to be really very expert on hair dying. When the time for my hairdye comes, I already know who will do it ! Ah and the internet-based reservation is a great idea!Cora Draper13:57 23 Aug 19Loved it! Lana made every effort to ensure that my hair cut is exactly perfect and she did a fab job. I’ve tried various salons since moving to Manchester and found several good ones but MT and her staff are definitely top quality!Rayan RCSI21:23 12 Aug 19Walked in to a welcoming environment, the reception team were lovely and smily, offered me juices and drinks until my stylist Johanna finished the previous customer, on my appointment time exactly. Johanna is an experienced and polite stylist, felt comfortable and got the hair style I was hoping for.Jessica Timperley15:36 10 Jul 19Had my hair cut and coloured by Johanna for the first time yesterday. Amazing experience, highlighting my hair and applying a baby pink toner. So pleased with the result. Thanks Johanna! xGeorge Webster18:19 08 Jul 19What a lovely place. Every member of staff are polite, chatty, professional and most importantly very good at cutting hair!! I can tell why they win so many awards!B H08:47 24 Jun 19I can’t recommend Melissa’s salon highly enough. I just love the fact that the whole process is seamless and professional from start to finish. The salon itself is so tranquil and lovely. This review is for two appointments- one last year with the lovely Jessika (I meant to leave a review at the time) who did a beautiful cut & colour- she really took the time to listen and I was so happy with the result. The appointment came at a stressful point in the year for me and I left the salon feeling like i’d been to a spa :) My most recent cut was with Izzy, who restyled my dry frazzled ends into a blunt bob which I love. She took into consideration my natural texture so that I can wear it curly sometimes. Some hairdressers overlook this but it’s so important! My hair feels so much healthier, Izzy did an amazing job. All the staff at the salon are completely professional, warm and friendly. I don’t want to go anywhere else now. Other salons I have been to often have a chaotic rushed feel but this salon is the complete opposite. Worth every penny! Thank you Melissa & team. I can't wait for my next appointment this month! xAnnie P12:11 21 Jun 19Izzy was wonderful! She took time to understand what I wanted and got me through what she was doing. Incredible hair cut and incredible salon.Kayleigh Tucker13:50 04 Jun 19This salon is a must try, the service provided is exceptional. I went in with a quite harsh line from a couple of years ago when I last had my hair dyed, when I left there was no line but the most beautiful subtle bayalage I've ever had, the bonus is with this is that it'll grow out so nicely. I loved everything about this salon - the music, the atmosphere and the products and the staff. If you're thinking of booking it do it.Becky Prince09:34 23 May 19Absolutely love going to Melissa Timperley hair salon! A lovely welcoming atmosphere every time! I had a cut and balayage done this week by Joanna and I'm very pleased! I used to really struggle to find a hairdresser who would do my hair exactly the way I want, whilst also giving recommendations about the best way to achieve the best look. Now I would not go anywhere else! Joanna really listened to what I wanted and did it to perfection. Plus, the head massage was amazing! I highly recommend a visit! Thank you!Rosanna Synak12:30 17 May 19Such a great place! Sara has done an incredible job, definitely coming back to see her! The girls are friendly and professional, I felt very welcome and comfortable .Angie Pikulinska17:57 29 Apr 19Had the most amazing experience at the salon. The staff is incredibly friendly, so chatty and lovely. Makes you feel very comfortable. And Izzy did a fantastic job. My hair never looked better! Made me feel so confident and happy. The ladies there are like magicians, couldn't recommend it more even if I tried! Very happy and thankful. Definitely found my perfect hair salon.Cory James22:19 28 Mar 19Always come away feeling extremely relaxed and pampered from Melissa Salons. The whole client experience is on another level. Thank you so much for my hair, I feel like a new man. The salon is classy and of a very high standard, I would recommend to anyone. 5*!!saraee123456721:34 22 Mar 19They say the key to gorgeous hair is a good haircut... well I have an amazing haircut thanks to Sara! I showed her a pic of the hair I wanted and she did an amazing job delivering exactly that. Everyone in the salon is so warm and welcoming, the whole vibe is lovely. I’ll be back soon :)Lesley Magee21:11 21 Mar 19I highly recommend Melissa Timperley and her fabulous salon. This was my first appointment and Melissa and her team made me feel so welcome and comfortable. I would especially recommend to anyone with curly hair - Its rare that you find a hairdresser that really knows how to deal with curls! Also if you are thinking of going for a drastic change - I really felt like Melissa took the time to get to know what I was looking for. I can't wait for my next appointment!Vivien Bamford11:07 13 Mar 19I love, love, love this hair haven. I've had my hair cut a number of times now, by both Melissa & Sara, & it's just been brilliant every time; beautifully cut & so, so easy to manage. For the first time ever in my 60 years, someone stopped me in B&Q to ask where I got my hair cut! Everyone takes the time to listen to you, understand what you want & need, & then teach you all the tricks to manage it yourself. Always such a lovely, relaxing experience, it feels like a little spa treat. It's clear that a lot of thought goes into everything they do (from the decor to the music to the fantastic head massage), but I think the key to their success (& I mean from a clients point of view) is the fact that they really do make you feel like you're worth the effort. Thanks so much Melissa & team.Sarah Dickinson17:30 15 Feb 19I had a great first experience at this salon having the Keratin treatment. The staff were all really friendly and welcoming. They were also knowledgable about their services and products. My hair went from being frizzy and wavy to swishy and smooth! Highly recommend.April Howell11:37 13 Feb 19Had a lovely experience at this salon! The staff listened carefully to what look I was trying to achieve and took their time to make sure that I left the salon feeling amazing. I was also given lots of helpful advice on hair treatments and colour maintenance. Overall, friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere - I would highly recommend!Kirsty White09:05 13 Feb 19Had the most amazing and lovely experience at Melissa Salons would highly recommend! My balayage by Izzy looks stunning and my hair feels and looks the healthiest it has ever been. Staff are lovely and welcoming and make sure they take the time to give you your perfect hair. Thank you so much I definitely will be returning! xxMayra Silberman20:38 11 Feb 19Best Hair Salon experience I’ve had in years. Thanks to Melissa and her lovely and professional staff who make you feel welcome and comfortable at all times. I loved it, and of course I love my hair after the treatment. I will be back soon! XxClaire Redford21:13 01 Feb 19Had the most amazing experience at Melissa Salons. The whole process I was made to feel really special. The coffees with the chocolates and personal touches were really nice, Melissa and her whole team were so welcoming and pleasant and my hair is amazing, I cant thank them enough. The salon was spotless and so clean, and I would 100% recommend to anyone. Thanks again Melissa and team!!Sophie Sutcliffe22:00 27 Feb 17Melissa transformed my hair this weekend! I decided i wanted a change and so asked for a full fringe, i haven't had one before so was a little nervous. Melissa talked me through the whole process and made me feel very at ease. She was extremely professional and so enthusiastic that it made me feel very relaxed in her salon. Her passion really shines through when she cuts hair and her attention to detail is amazing. She was so patient with me and my hair has never felt healthier. Thank-you so much, I will definitely be returning and would 100% recommend this salon!
