Reviews of Fred Shahed hair and fashion boutique

  • Such a beautiful salon but what a disappointed. The staff was nice enough but the salon was very unorganised and all the staff members seemed a little odd and untrained . I was given a very cheap groupon voucher as a gift and cheap was what I got.

    I hate my hair it was cut straight with no style or layers which is what I asked for. And the colour is not even close to what I told the staff.

    Don't go to this salon.

  • I visited the salon with pictures and detailed description of what I wanted. Ask specifically asked for no length to be taken off a certain area. I have left the salon with a bowl haircut - this is not what I described or showed in pictures. A good inch has been taken off the area where I requested no length to be taken. In conclusion - do not visit this salon if you want to leave with what you have requested. The staff nodded and confirmed understanding it was obvious staff was only going to do what they wanted to do. I am bitterly disappointed with the result.
  • Amazing!! Kaitlynn did my hair and I could not be happier with it, she has done such an awesome job! I'm always a bit nervous getting my hair done somewhere new but she couldn't have put me more at ease, especially as I wanted to change my hair and go for something new. You can tell Kaitlynn genuinely cares about her job and making people look and feel great. Thank you, I love my new hair and am definitely going back!!
  • Just had my hair cut & coloured by Kaitlyn & it was fantastic! I have such thin, fine hair & I walked out at the end with loads of volume. Anyone can make good hair look good but it takes real skill to make problem hair look good. Great atmosphere & wonderful service too! Highly recommended.
  • Amazing find !!!!!!!!!!!....... Not only did I get the most amazing haircut and colour ,I found a fabulous outfit and free styling advise . Ladies and gents look no further ,found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow ....Fred shahed ....
  • I bought a groupon voucher and had my hair done with Kaitlyn the other week and i just want to say it was the best experience at a salon I've ever had! Everyone there was so friendly and professional. Kaitlyn gave me the best cut and colour I've ever had and my hair has never felt better! She really listened to what i wanted and really cared. I will definitely be back! Amazing!
  • I have been a loyal client for over 11 years and must say I would never trust anyone else with my hair if you want fabulous hair and a relaxing experience than you should book in with my number one hairdresser Fred shahed
  • Fred is the best.
    One of the only hairdressers i have come across who actually listens to the client and gives you what you want I'm always 100% happy with the cut and colour and he is so sweet.
  • Just had my hair down with Fred Shahed himself after a 9 week wait and can now see what all the fuss it about not only he listened to me the whole time gave me wonderful suggestions that works with my hair and lifestyle.
    I have never felt so glamorous he cut my hair to make it look like i had double the amount on my head he works magic with he's hands he's a true artist.
  • Not going to visit this salon again, bad service, screwed up my hair colour and did nothing to fix it also not returned my calls... horrible experience.
  • I am pleased to review this salon as I've been trying really hard to get an appointment with Fred shahed for weeks and with some luck I got in and it's true what everyone has been saying about him. He is the most amazing hairdresser! my new colour and hair extensions are so amazing I look and feel like a new woman!
  • I rarely write reviews but this time I felt the need to. Yesterday I decided after looking in the mirror my hair needed to be done. After trawling up and down Oxford st I came a across this fab place. I walked in and was greeted with a smile from the lovely Mel, she quickly asked me what I wanted and went to check if they could squeeze me in. It must have been my lucky day because they could! Fred himself was my stylist and I found him to be delightful!! Fred did a half head of foils and they were perfect! He then styled and cut my hair which again were both perfect jobs. Fred's range of clothing is to die for and I couldn't help myself and left with two gorgeous pieces even though I am meant to be on a shopping ban!!! I would totally recommend this gorgeous place!!! This place really knows the meaning of customer service!!!!! Thanks to all who made my experience such a fabulous one xxxx
  • Another salon who does not care about customer, their feedback or post sales service. They participate in deals, get customers sucked in and provide absolutely reckless service. Don't go here, do not buy their vouchers they will put you in the hands of a new assistant, spoil your hair and wouldn't give a damn about it... beware!!
  • I bought a groupon voucher and went to get a half head of foils. I asked for the same colour I have in my hair now, to go as blonde as I could. They applied the bleach and left me for over an hour, then checked it and said it hadn't lifted, they left me for longer and then finally decided to apply a stronger bleach on some foils, I was in the salon for about four hours and my hair has now got browny blonde roots which look ridiculous with my hair. As the salon was dark I couldn't see it properly and thought it would improve with the next wash. But it's been over a week and it just makes me furious every time I look in the mirror. I'm going to have to pay somewhere else to put it right now, I wish I'd just paid full price and gone somewhere decent in the first place.
  • Just had my hair done at this salon and love it! My stylist Fred Shahed gave me the royal treatment. He knew just what my hair needed and and it looks amazing! Thank you Fred your amazing darling xxx
  • Hey everyone, I want to share my experience at Fred Shahed. I bought a Groupon deal (full head of foils) a few weeks ago. When I arrived there, no one greeted me or offered me a seat. One staff did offer me a coffee though, and he was the only one who provided good service. After 30 minutes wait, it was my turn. The hairdresser did not introduce itself and started applying bleach on my hair which the hairdresser left for one hour and a half. I asked what kind of product they were using and if it contained ammonia. The hairdresser was not sure, which I found a bit surprising.
    After an hour and a half, someone washed my hair. At that time, the staff noticed that something was wrong and tried to alert the hairdresser without me noticing. But I did. I checked my hair and found that the colour looked more yellow than blonde and I told the hairdresser that it was different from what I asked for. The hairdresser tried to convince me otherwise despite the issue being quite obvious.
    I complained about this to Fred and he initially proposed to fix it but I would have to pay 300$. In the end, they agreed to fix it for free and they applied again foils which means more damage to my hair. In the end, I left the salon after 4 hours with a result far from what I was expecting.
    I am really disappointed in the service I received and the unprofessional attitude from the staff.

  • I know I'm always in good hands when i enter he's salon i have been going to Fred for a decade and what makes him incredible is that he's consistent every time i have never once walked out with bad hair soon as i leave the salon i receive compliments from complete strangers love this man
  • The place to go to for beautiful hair
    Fred knows the trends whats current and exactly what suits me and my lifestyle i always walk out feeling amazing.
    The cloths he stocks are amazing too, totally worth a visit.
  • This place is amazing! I've been going to Fred for years and he really knows how to create amazing hairstyles. His boutique also stocks amazing clothes and accessories, definitely worth going to his store for an indulgent makeover.
  • Ive had so many bad experiences with hairdressers in the past I'm always a nervous wreck trying new places. I have been to this salon now several times and always walk out with a huge smile on my face and constantly receive compliments also the best thing is my hair always grows out so well. Fred who does my hair always gives me good advice shows me how to style and care for my hair at home and knows whats on trend and what suits me. He's amazing at he's craft.
