We Love to Hear Customer Feedback

I was hoping to have my hair coloured at Philosophie for a while, I had my eye on the salon as I came across it’s impressive and eye catching results documented on their social media pages. The colouring seemed as though they were very trend conscientious as well as what truly suited the individual and what their client had in mind, the colours all looked unique and beautiful and perfectly suiting the client, as though they had really listened to their idea of perfect hair, not just thrown out a ‘usual’ and what they were comfortable cutting and styling themselves. I was very excited and couldn’t wait to pay a visit and I was pleasantly surprised and my hopes and expectations were surpassed! The salon is in a comfortable and cool location just along the smaller shopping lanes Northumberland place of Bath, it’s contemporary and relaxed but professional and stylish feel put me at ease.i was offered an abundance of beautiful and interesting magazines to enjoy and also about 4 elderflower and sparkling water drinks which were refilled every moment I finished the last sip! I had an in depth discussion with Miles Rhodes and the colourist who made me feel very relaxed and involved in the decision they are obviously very professional, passionate and knowledgable about hair , you can tell that they take their work seriously while enjoying it and are devoted to what they do and are ardent to achieve the idea you have in mind, right down to the last detail, this is communicated with you so you can feel very reassured in their hands I was overwhelmed by just how exceptional the service was at Phylosophie, the whole experience was lovely, and the miles and the colourist warm, generous and complimentary. I felt like a real treat. The huge amount of time and meticulous effort taken by miles to get the exact style he had envisioned was amazing, the end result gorgeous silky hair cut to perfect shape and detail which suited my hair and face shape and styling preference, all the while Miles and his team make you feel incredibly welcome and heard. The cut was skilful and so was the colouring done with lots of tlc.!The passion and precision given to the cut waa a luxury, I can’t imagine many other salons giving 110% as Phylosophie did while keeping it a stimulating but peaceful and down to earth atmosphere in the salon. On leaving it was late past closing,though I was not made to feel rushed but made to feel appreciated, I was even given mant complimentary products in a gift bag which were used in my hair and given substantial advice tailored to my hair and cut from Miles. The entire experience was wonderfully outstanding. I would recommend to anyone in Bath or otherwise to treat themselves to the soothing and nurturing experience of Phylosophie, you will leave feeling content with your hair looking beautiful and yourself feeling impressed and elated. 10/10

The service here always feels very personal, you aren’t being treated like just another head of hair. In addition Miles is not one to rush through your appointment in order to get to the next one- my cut this morning took two hours, and at no point did he make me feel like I was holding up other customers. He took his time, had great attention to detail and the result is fantastic.

Seriously the best experience I’ve ever had at a salon. I still can’t believe how much time Miles spent looking at my hair and talking to me about it: what I liked, what I didn’t like, the problems that I would like to solve, etc. I loved his honesty and meticulous attention to detail, and the haircut was brilliant. Bath is over an hour away from where I live, but it’s worth the trip. Very, very impressed.

Miles cut my hair yesterday evening – he was really thorough and spent a long time adjusting my style, whilst keeping it long as I had asked. I had complimentary deep conditioning as he said my hair was dehydrated, and having used the Oribe products before I knew they were quality products with good ingredients, so I was delighted to be able to try more of the range, some of which I ended up buying. The overall experience is so unlike that of other hairdressers – the interior is beautiful, I was given refills of elderflower cordial and the conversation was flowing – such a relaxed yet fun atmosphere. Best of all – I love my new cut and can’t wait to go back for a colour consultation 🙂 10/10 for such a unique little place.

What a beautiful place! Such a fantastic experience- I had a full colour with Gemma from brown to a light blonde and I absolutely love the results. Gemma was attentitive and professional throughout, you don’t feel like part of a production line in this salon, every client matters and this is obvious by the time they spend with you- I was there for 5 hours! After my colour I got my hair cut by miles who really understood my hair. He asked me lots of questions in the consultation to ascertain exactly what my hair needed- and then has given me the best cut of my life! Unlike other salons where your hair only looks good the day of the appointment, I found my hair to evolve after, miles talked me through how to effortlessly style and recommended a great product (après beach) to help give me a great look everyday! Couldn’t say enough about this place- LOVE IT

Phylosophie is a completely new ball game. The level and quality of service that is given is truly outstanding, you honestly don’t want the experience to end. I have never been in a salon that is not only so welcoming and beautiful but the people can actually deliver what they say they can and more! I will never go to anyone other than Miles to have my hair cut ever again, as I know that his expert advice and experience means I will always leave happy! Trust me, if you want to leave feeling and looking beautiful, happy and pampered, there is no other place that you should be!

Laura Reynolds

Wow! Found this newly opened salon and had my hair cut there yesterday. My own mother is a hairdresser but I have to say this is one of the best cuts I’ve ever had (sorry mum!). Miles really listened and added lots of creative input – his expertise and passion is clear. Really cool and quirky salon, loved everything about it. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Abby Mullen

Fantastic salon. Best haircut I’ve ever had. Brilliant attention to detail & great advice given. Real value for money. I’ll be back! Thanks Miles.

Bev Willis

Well, I don’t believe there are words in existence to express how incredible Phylosophie really is. The indescribable talent, experience and professionalism quietly embedded in the staff is unrivalled by any salon I have ever come across, despite having searched around the globe. I was overcome by the level of service, passion and genuity Miles and his staff demonstrated throughout my day long appointment- I have finally, after searching life long, found THE salon. There are good salons, there are great salons, and then there is Miles and his team at Phylosophie: a different approach indeed, in a COMPLETELY different league.

Hilary Briggs

After many years of using big name high street chain hairdressers it was refreshing to experience such a high quality personalised service. The attention to detail was fantastic and after care advice brilliant. Miles and his team made me feel very much at home. Just what Bath needs 🙂

Leekie Albertini

Entered with my witchy frizz and left feeling like a new person . This is unlike any experience I have had in that Miles really spends the time looking at your hair and talking to you to find out what you want to achieve. Very happy and it is clear that you believe in lifelong customer value. Thank you so much I will definitely be back and would highly recommend. A very happy curly haired customer! :-))).
