Advantages: Modern, clean feeling, reasonable introductory prices
Disadvantages: Location - out the way and hard to get to unless you know the area
This salon is recently opened Plymouth hair and beauty salon, so thought it was a great idea to let people know what it was like. My mum and I were looking for a new hairdresser as the old one had moved out of the city, so choosing a hairdresser is quite a big decision to a lady!
Morgans is located on an industrial estate about ten to fifteen minute drive from the city centre of Plymouth. I have lived in Plymouth for a long time, so knew where it was, but it isn't easily sign posted and it is tucked away out of the view of the public. It is above a gym - which is fine and means there is ample room for parking. Another thing to point out, is across the road, there is a place called "Jump" which is a play house for children - I thought this would be a good thing to point out, as parent(s) might want to jump the children off before having their hair/beauty treatments.
I parked my car, quite easily, and this was a saturday afternoon. It was a little confusing where the entrace was, but we went through a door and asked the girl at the entrace to the gym. She was nice and showed us upstairs. The salon was a square modern looking room, green and white colour scheme as in the picture. The room was nice and warm, which was nice because it was freezing cold outside! We were showed a comfy seat and asked if we would like tea or coffee. Then my mum and I had our hair washed and cut individually.
I walked down and had my hair washed by a very young looking girl - she made a few efforts to make conversation, and was very gentle washing my hair. I then had a different girl cut my hair - she also was very young,and at times I think it was difficult to talk to her. The hair cut was okay, nothing overly spectacular, but it wasn't too bad.
The other staff were friendly, and smiled but they were not very talkative - I think alot of this was that were young and maybe not "established." The price was quite reasonably, an introductory offer of a wash and cut was £15. An example of usual prices are very reasonably; £17 for a woman's dry cut, childrens cut under 7, £5. The also did an introductory offer for £45 of a manicure/false nails, free beauty product, cut, wash and consulation, which i thought was a bargain! When my mum inquired about it for the saturday she would only be able to have the hair cut and not the beauty treatments, which was a shame.
I think the overall establishment is modern, funky feeling and upbeat. The main thing was the place was very clean and sparkling. But I think the major thing that lets this place down is the location - it isn't the easiest place to get too. It was good for the introductory offer, but I wouldn't choose to go there, even if we lived closer.
Go there for the reasonable prices, introductory offer and don't mind trying to find the new place
Don't go there if you are rubbish with directions, or want a very talkative hairdresser.
Summary: Cheap and cheerful,, no frills, and not very talkative staff.
