Please could you pass on my hearty thanks to Ciaran for doing a stellar job on my up-do last Friday? It stayed up all night (until 4am!) through some seriously intensive dancing and got a lot of compliments from gents and ladies alike. 
My hair always looks great after my appointments with him but
he really went above and beyond this time and I can't thank him enough!


Great place to get a haircut. 
NIce atmosphere with a stylish and spacious interior which is 'shabby-chic', without being pretentious. Very friendly and my regular hairdresser (Minh) will always go that extra mile to make sure I'm happy.

Very happy with my new 'do. Londoners, if you're looking for a great cut, and some frankly quite eye opening chat, go and find Ciaran O'Kane at Stannard and Slingsby on Kensington High Street. 
A winner every time.

I live in the area and had heard rave reviews about this hairdressers. I finally got round to booking and I'm delighted to have discovered a gem in the heart of Kensington. I have curly hair and am forever straightening it. Michael (one of the owners) convinced me he could cut my hair in such a way to enhance the curls. I trusted him and the hair looks fab! I now wear my curls with pride. All the staff are super friendly and polite and the salon itself is bright, spacious and very stylish. Oh the blow dries are amazing too for the days when I want to be sleek. You must give it a try!


We are particularly grateful to the staff at the hairdressers Stannard and Slingsby, on Kensington High Street who are donating the cost of the haircuts and letting us practically take over their salon for the cutting event!

The huge, stylish premises are beautiful. You can people-watch over the high Street through huge picture windows. It is busy, (good sign), yet seems a calm, happy place. You get a delicious coffee. The staff are all genuinely friendly, seem very "normal", (I'm not sure what that means). And they do great, fabulous hair. I am amazed I stumbled upon this wonderful place. Whoever runs this place is a genius.
