RAZORS EDGE ROYAL EXCHANGE REVIEW


Just before Christmas my cousins were coming up to visit and I realised I really needed a haircut. I hadn't been to the hairdressers in six months, my bob had grown out into a mid length mess. I realised that I'd been wearing it up a lot, because it looked so shapeless down. Time for a change.

I'd heard good things about The Razors Edge and with them being the cheapest city centre salon I found, I made an appointment for that afternoon. They're located in the Royal Exchange but also have an older (and slightly cheaper) salon on Oxford Road. 

Upon walking in I was impressed with the large space and inviting feel of the salon. The staff were all warm and friendly. I had a brief consultation with the lady who was going to be cutting my hair, and then headed off to have it washed. My favourite part of a haircut is getting it washed so I was pleased when they talked me through all the products used (kerastase nutritive range) and spent time giving me a good head massage. 

When I headed back to my chair there was a cup of tea ready for me.. My stylist was friendly and instantly made me feel at ease, she cut my hair exactly the way I pictured it, and really knew what products were right for my hair type. The only thing I was a little disappointed by was how my hair felt later on; by the evening my hair was flat and a little greasy and wanted to wash it again, probably just a product overload. However, I was really happy with the style and the price. A wash cut and blow dry comes to £44 but with 25% student discount Mon- Fri and £5 of your first visit when you download the app I only paid £28! 

What salon do you go to in Manchester? Would you try The Razors Edge?
