“I just felt the need to email you to say how much I love my hair ! The colours look even better in day light ! . . You have lifted my spirits and made me feel my age again, instead of a pensioner !!” Lots of love
Sharon Halstead

“I have been coming to this salon for about a year now and I love it. Everyone is professional, friendly and the prices are very reasonable. I feel pampered, special and I love the way my hair looks when I leave the salon. 5 stars guys, you are all fab.” Pat, Colchester

“Today I went to Benjamin Charles Hair after another haidresser had ruined my hair. Benjamin and his team were absolutely amazing, very friendly, helpfull and knowledgeable. They saved my barnet and now I can go out again without covering my head! Thanks!!”
Sandy, Colchester

“After much searching for a stylist in Colchester, I finally decided to make an appointment with Benn at Benjamin Charles and was not disappointed! The whole experience was really excellent. I was greeted as soon as I walked in with a warm welcome—offered tea, coffee, sparkling or still water. Benn then chatted with me, getting to know me and finding out about what kind of style I wanted. He spent a long time explaining to me how my hair would work with the style I was going for, explained what he planned to do and how he thougth it would look. I feel like this attention to detail is what makes him stand out from other stylists—he really takes the time to get to know you a bit so he can give you a haircut that really is best suited for you. The haircut I got was great and I am thrilled. I also think it’s really wonderful that he not only offers, but really insists that if you aren’t happy with the cut, that you let him know (within a week) and he will see you again to change/adjust the style so that you’re happy.” Anon

“After finding Benjamin Charles on the internet and seeing his past experience, I thought I would book up and sample his skills. I must say I was very pleased with my first cut and highlight with Benn, it wasn’t just a sit down and standard “what do you want?”
He finds out about you and your lifestyle and suggests the appropriate cut. I am definitely going back and would recommend it for the relaxed atmosphere they provide.” Bruce, Clacton-on-Sea

“I was delighted with my new haircut at Benjamin Charles. Benn cut my my hair into a style that looks and feels great, and is easy for me to recreate at home.

The salon in central Colchester is sophisticated, calming and welcoming, and Benn and his team are very friendly. I am already looking forward to my next appointment!”
Suzanne, Bures

“I only just had a cleanse, cut and finish with Leigh today. I came back after having a complimentary cleanse and finish with Kat. I really loved Kat’s attention to caring for her clients and I am very suprised she is a graduate as she is so professional. I also had a really great head massage off Kat and today I had Nathan who was lovely. I am so pleased with the new cut I have that Leigh did today.

This is such a relaxing salon to go to and they care so much for there clients. I would give this a 5* rating!!!”
Catherine, Colchester

“After a friend recommended it, I had my hair cut at Benjamin Charles a couple of weeks ago now and I can’t believe how the style still looks brand new. I haven’t got time to spend hours under the hairdryer but the cut is really easy to style and it keeps the choppy look I left the salon with and at very little effort.

Combined with the relaxed and friendly service, the AWESOME massage chairs and the fact that the whole place oozes quality, I will definitely be heading back there. Thanks guys!”
Anna, Witham

“What I would like to say is that I have been to Faces and Toni&Guy in the town but this is possibly the best haircut that I have ever had. So easy to manage.  It has a very sleek look without being too short.  You are a real master with the scissors, you listened to what I said and I shall definitely be back for my next appointment. Although you are on North Hill you are very easy to find because if you park in W&G car park and you head out on to North Hill through the archway, then you are directly in view.  Also, you serve up sparkling water.  That’s a first in my experience-not boring old tap water!”
Kim, Colchester

P. Benn has been doing my hair for almost 5 years now and is the only person id pay to cut my hair. I’ve never had a bad haircut, it’s always different and he knows exactly what my hair needs to ensure my hair behaves weeks after its been cut. The products used in the salon smell amazing and make my hair so soft and shiny. Last time Benn did my hair, he used Morroccan hair curl cream to style it, it worked so well and smells gorgeous, I bought some. Before leaving the salon, Benn told me how to use it on my hair so id know how when I used it. With Benn and his team, you don’t just get an amazing haircut and great service; it’s like visiting an old friend. =) xx
Nicola, Colchester

P. My partner Claire came into your salon, and I am thrilled to bits with the way that Benn has styled her hair. It was lovely to see a true professional at work, and understanding the shape & profile of Claire’s face thank- you so very much Benn.
Drew, Colchester.

P. I’ve been to Benn several times now. Each time it is a pleasure to realise that Benn really listens to what you say about your hair. In the past hairdressers, in my experience, listen the first time and then become less interested -it’s easy for them, but Benn treats you like a new client each time you visit.
Ben is creative with cut and colour and a really nice guy too.
I keep going back.
Sue, Colchester

P. I came to Benjamin Charles for a full head of highlights. When I arrived I was warmly greeted by all of the staff, it made me feel comfortable and at home as the atmosphere was relaxed yet very professional.
I had the pleasure of Gaynor colouring my hair. She gave me a thorough consultation and found the best colours for my hair and skin tone. She methodically worked her way through my highlights and did a fantastic job. The colours blended in perfectly and gave my hair the boost it craved. She also corrected the mistakes the previous hairdresser had made. I will not go anywhere else to have my hair done now as Gaynor always does my hair to perfection. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Lisa, Colchester

P. I went to Benjamin Charles as i had recently had a bad experience at a salon, not a million miles away the colour and style i had asked for didn’t happen i was not listened too, so i though i would try Benjamin Charles as i was not a happy cat (if my hair is not right i feel awful) i was very impressed from the moment i walked in the door i got the colour and style i wanted at last and had a good laugh at the same time I was completely relaxed. I will be going back there and would happily recommend the salon to every one thanks once again Emma you are a wonder

P. Just wanted to say thank you so much for a fantastic haircut and colour last week.
I can’t believe my hair is now back to normal after just two haircuts and colours. It’s fantastic, and there are no more tantrums in the morning when my hair won’t go right!
Look forward to my next visit!

P. Loved the massage chairs, the friendly staff and came out with a top new hair-do! Wasn’t really sure which kind of cut I wanted, but the advice from the hairdresser was excellent and the cut makes me look much younger-hooray! Thoroughly enjoyed my experience – better value for money and a much more relaxing experience than my old salon. I will be back and will be recommending to all my friends!

P. What can i say this is the third time i have been to Benjamin Charles since it opened and yet again i have had a wonderful experience at this friendly helpful and professional salon. Benn not only listens to your ideas but suggests his own to enhance your style rather than impose his own views. Today i decided to go short and his reassurance that all would be fine was justified. His skill and expertise showed through and i wish i had decided on this radical change some time ago. Whilst there i treated myself to the Garra Rufa fish experience and believe me it is great, it tickles a bit to start with but you soon get used to it and it doesn’t hurt at all. It’s fascinating to watch them and my feet feel so smooth and healthy thanks Benn see you soon!

P. Had my first hair cut with Benn and was instantly pleased with it, now looking forward to next appointment for colouring. I was well treated and not rushed through like something on a production belt.

P. I had my hair cut at Benjamin Charles last week. The staff were very friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed the massage chair when having my hair washed! I loved the cut and my friends have said how nice it is! Will definitely be coming again!

P. I had my hair cut today; I just wanted to say how professional it was!! The staff were very friendly and chatty, offering advice on how I can do my hair and styled my hair in a way I have never tried doing!! :) My hair was cut perfectly. The salon is lovely and very welcoming.
Thank you!!
Terri, Colchester

P. Just thought you might like to know that someone stopped me in the street and said my haircut was so nice – so i told them where i had it done!!!!
