Garbo's Hair Portsmouth and Southsea Reviews
Garbo's Hair Portsmouth and SouthseaBy: Rex Inego | Mar 08, 2008 11:37 AM
I have visited two of the garbos salons in Portsmouth - The Lab and the salon in albert road and both times been really impressed! I firstly went to 'The Lab' and Hayley looked after me. I came in on recommendation and as I work just over the road, and wanted to have my hair blow-dryed and styled as I was going out that night. My hair was blow-dryed beautifully and even just after a blow dry the condition looked amazing plus it stayed in all night.
Pros: Hayley was a really polite girl and was very friendly throughout the appointment and took interest in my night ahead, also suggesting styles to have my hair to compliment my clothes I told her I was thinking of wearing! I went to the albert road salon and Laura looked after me this time. It had been a while since I had had my hair cut and coloured; I was getting a bit bored with my stylist I usually go to, where even when I ask for a change I still come out with the same style and colour! Laura had a good 10 minute consultation with me, showed me different colours, what colours would suit my skin tone and eventually we picked two different blonde colours and we also discussed the haircut and decided to have a full fringe put in - (scary as I havent had a fringe since I was 10!). Laura again was very chatty throughout and seemed to take a real interest in what she was doing. I was so pleased with the overall result - my colour looked fab, really natural and shiny and the cut was equally as good and i do love my new fringe! I also on recommendation bought a small tube of leave in conditioner, and all together with the colour and the cut my bill was nothing out of the ordinary especially compared to some of the other big salons in Portsmouth, but as I was soooo pleased with the result it was definatly worth the investment!
cons: The only bad point I can really suggest is that (like all of parking in portsmouth) espeically at busier times it may be hard to find a parking space so i would just leave 5 minutes earlier than planned just to make sure yoiu are not late for you appointment. Theres loads odf roads around the albert road salonn to park in to be fair, just obviously at the busy times it may be more difficult. :)
conclusion: I have been pleased with both my visits to the garbos salons and have my next appointment all booked in! i would definatly recommend the salons to anyone, the staff were all lovely, the salons themselves look really stylish and my hair has never looked (and felt so good)!
