As you have probably guessed the original review star rating was a massive mistake! I have been a customer for over 20 years and certainly would have not returned every month for all those years if I had rated only 1*??!! I have nothing but praise for your wonderful salon.....West end styling and surroundings in a local setting. Elaine has been a wonderful skilled and knowledgeable advisor over the years and I trust her 100% to know what's best for me. I work as air cabin crew and have had many compliments over the years from passengers who also ask where I get my hair done. I'm glad I've been able to update my review as I have no idea what I did before....techno fingers! Keep up the good work Kevin and the team. ...I'd be lost without you! ! 💖

Abbie is my fav colourist. Super talented and a very honest person, has always told me exactly what she can and can't do with my hair conditions. She has advised me on various hair products to buy and I have seen a great improvement. I'm always sending people to novo. Friendly team and enjoy going there! X

I can't recommend this salon and the stylists highly enough. I have been a client of Novo Hair for many years now and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. I have recommended Novo to family and friends who have become long-standing clients themselves testament to the professionalism, knowledge and skills of each stylist. From the moment you walk in you feel welcomed and valued by the whole team! The move to the fabulous new salon in Alexandra Street has just made the whole experience even more special! Don't consider going anywhere else!! 🙂

An outstanding hair salon, with experienced stylists, who are professional and courteous. From the great coffee, to the tasteful decor, the friendly staff, and relaxing ambience make this a very enjoyable experience. I have been a client of Novo hair for over 20 years and I wouldn't go anywhere else. So much so, I now travel from South London to Southend specifically to have my hair cut and coloured. It's worth the hour's drive for the result of a great cut. Who says the best salons are in London?! I disagree.

I was one of the lucky winners this month, I received a free cut and finish and paid for balayage, I absolutely love it! My hairdresser was Jordan and she was lovely! I would definitely recommend! 🙂

Took my 11 year old daughter to Novo this morning. She has very long, curly hair but neither of us knew how to style it to reduce the frizz etc. Lillie really made her feel at ease and special and took time to give lots of advice! We both feel confident in dealing with her luscious locks now! Thanks for a lovely morning Lillie 😊

Both visits here have been so lovely- I've never felt comfortable having my hair done, but in both of my experiences the girls were so lovely and they knew exactly what I wanted. It was nice to feel at ease somewhere, especially as I've never spent much on my hair. Will definitely be back x

My first time at novo in Southend was great. I had a lovely cut and blow dry today with stylist Georgia. She was lovely, great chat and amazing knowledge what was best for my hair. She listened to what I wanted and I came out with exactly what I was imagined. I’m always so scared to try someone new but I’m glad I left my trust with her. Thank you again! X

Very lovely staff.. However paid extra for a hair ‘specialist’ who has supposedly been there 18 years, to give me a balayage, and was given a full head of highlights instead, which left my hair disgusting and left me very upset.. Not forgetting it was an awkward expirence and I was barely spoken to throughout the time of my hair being coloured wrongly, wouldn’t recommend and wouldn’t go back, however I’ve got my refund and am now paying £105 for my hair to be fixed ELSEWHERE�

I've been coming this novo for years and will say it's one of the best ever hairdressers in Essex. The staff are the most accommodating, professional, friendly , awesome people you will come across who are passionate about hairdressing as well as making your time at the salon relaxing and also a chilled atmosphere. Christina one of the senior colourists at NOVO who is exceptional and really takes her time to know each individual customer, and works together to provide and deliver perfect colours to suit individual clients. Kevin the owner I must say goes above and beyond his role and I recommend anyone who has never experienced NOVO salon to book an appointment. Thank you for all your beautiful haircuts and hair colourings I've had over the years it's much appreciated.

I've been trying to find a hair dressers which will actually listen to what I want to do with my hair. I originally found Novo online from good reviews and I can tell you now, it's worth every penny!!! The people are lovely, the drinks are tasty, the massages are amazing, the hair cut are astounding and the colour work is out of this world! My hair was so bland, this and lifeless before going in to novo and thanks to the Olaplex treatment my hair feels so think and healthy. I would recommend this place to all my friends!!!

I came in today for my smoothing shampoo treatment which I won through a Facebook competition. Jess was wonderful and talked me through all the different parts of the process. It was hugely relaxing sitting with a delicious hot chocolate and stack of magazines! My frizzy, damaged, unmanageable hair is now soft, smooth and beautifully straight. Thank you Novo and I will be back in three months for a repeat treatment!
