    Lovely to go somewhere that is obeying all the rules but still managing to make it a lovely experience. My first haircut for nearly 5 months! Thank You

  • Monique (Saturday, February 15 20 10:17 pm GMT)

    12-2-2020 This was my first visit to the salon and I am delighted with my 'new' hair. I had so many compliments from people, they all loved it. John gave me a new style which is easy to maintain as I am naturally curly, no need to straighten my hair anymore. I bought the rotating hairdryer and its easy and quick.I am super please too with the colour thanks to Edward. One very happy customer indeed. xx

  • Ali (Saturday, August 31 19 03:11 pm BST)

    Absolutely amazing Thank you so much I feel pampered and so happy with my new hair, you guys are truly awesome and so lovely, friendly and caring.
    Best hairdressers by far.

  • Lesley Phillips (Wednesday, August 21 19 12:03 pm BST)

    Wonderful, friendly and the best of the best is the only way I can describe JohnEdwards.
    You are made to feel 'part of the family' each visit and walk out feeling like a million dollars with an amazing hair cut every time.
    John makes it very clear that even if the salon is manically busy, the only person who he has time for when you are sat in front of him is you and I have had the same quality hair cut/colouring each and every visit for the many years I have now been visiting.
    I have been to other salons in the past where the first cut was always great and then after that it was as if you didn't matter and it never looked as good as the first time - I used to hate going to hairdressers as it seemed such a 'waste of time for a necessity' . In contrast John gives me such a great haircut and the atmosphere is so fun and relaxed, I actually look forward to my appointments here!
    I have also received such sound advice re taking care of my hair in between appointments and I have seen its condition improve because of John's advice.
    I thank my lucky stars John and Edward moved to Dorchester :)

  • Joan Meech (Wednesday, August 01 18 04:20 pm BST)

  • CHRISTINE PARR (Friday, January 12 18 04:44 pm GMT)

    Lovely first visit to John Edwards today. Always difficult to find a new salon but feel like I really hit gold today. Lovely salon, great atmosphere and great cut thanks to Ed. Can really recommend this salon.

  • Claire Thomas (Tuesday, May 09 17 11:11 pm BST)

    John, I love you! From the minute I stepped in to the salon to the moment I left, I felt welcome, happy and comfortable. John gave me the confidence to go for a new style with my curly hair and, as any curly person will know, this can take some courage! Em was fab, a great hostess and a dab hand at head massage. After my shampoo, treatment and massage I was handed over to John, who was just as excited for my new do as I was! He chatted so easily, was such fun and I felt that he really cared about how I felt about my hair. He gave me great haircare advice, and appeared to enjoy every second of his work. I was sad to leave, but I'm already counting down the days to my return, and can't wait for my next hour in the most fantastic salon in town!

  • Kate (Saturday, March 04 17 05:45 pm GMT)

    Well where do I start with this salon! My hair is thick, coarse, curly and unruly. Ive fought with it for years and never found a hairdresser who has handled it to the extent that John has!
    I wish I had found them years and years and years ago as now I am happy at last with my hair. Not only that the atmosphere within the salon is GREAT! Its welcoming, comfortable, enjoyable and fun and all the people within are like a little family who are so genuine! They have time for you in a way that I have never felt before in any hairdressers! It is a top high class salon in every way.
    Thank you to you all x

  • Meg Crane (Tuesday, February 28 17 10:33 pm GMT)

    As a girl with difficult curly hair I have dreaded going to the hairdressers and have never left happy with the cut...until now. This is the first time in my life I have walked away with a huge smile ear to ear! Edward was wonderful. He listened to what I wanted and gave me a new look which far exceeded my expections. I'm also grateful to John for the initial consultation and for giving me the confidence to go for a new style. I will definitely be back and cannot recommend highly enough. One very, very happy client. Thank you so much.

  • Natasha Pitcher (Saturday, January 28 17 05:31 pm GMT)

    I honestly haven't seen my husband with such a good haircut in years and we've been together for 19! Thank you Edward, fantastic job!

  • Jacqui Gisborne (Saturday, December 03 16 11:35 am GMT)

    After rave comments about my daughters new hair cut I have an appointment in a couple of weeks time as a birthday present. Am ssoo excited about a new style

  • Natasha Pitcher (Saturday, September 03 16 02:26 pm BST)

    First visit a couple of months ago and by the time John had finished with my dry, over layered, chopped into hair I was almost in tears of exaggeration, I wanted to hug him!

  • Elzbieta Dybalska-Stolarczyk (Tuesday, August 30 16 02:01 pm BST)

    Very professional, very creative, very high standard of services, Congratulations

  • Jayne Oliver (Saturday, August 06 16 11:25 pm BST)

    Thankyou John and Edward ( and Blade!) for making our afternoon so enjoyable. We all feel wonderful and the colour and cuts look fantastic, as always. Jayne

  • Sue Worthy (Wednesday, April 20 16 10:27 am BST)

    Edward is an incredible talent, he’s up there with the top 1% of colourists and I’m so glad I’ve found him.

    Many years of directing hair commercials gave me access to the very best colourists in the country and even though I live in Dorset I still headed back to Mayfair for my cut and colour as I wasn’t
    prepared to relinquish the level of expertise that delivered my intricate weave of highlights.

    …and then I found Edward.

    His skill for creating a perfect, beautifully natural colour is on a par with the top colour salons in London. I think he's brilliant. x

  • Sandy Jordan (Thursday, February 18 16 12:44 pm GMT)

    My first visit to John Edwards and certainly not my last! From my first phone call which was taken by Blade who was so enthusiastic and polite, to my hair cut by John, which was Amazing! I am so
    pleased and came out feeling like a new woman. Here is a hairdresser that really listens to what you want, and then delivers just that. And as well as all that, the banter and atmosphere is great.
    Love it! x

  • Penny Payne (Saturday, February 13 16 12:26 pm GMT)

    I recently moved from Kent to Dorset – and I was very pleased to have John recommended to me by a great friend, particularly as both of us have hard to manage hair.

    I was so attached to my lovely hairdresser of many years in my local market town of Faversham, so it was with some trepidation that I went to John for the first time for a cut and colour.

    I was NOT disappointed. What a brilliant result – and what lovely guys these two are. They will put you at your ease, cheer you up, pay complete attention to what you ask them, be patient and
    professional – and manage to make you feel like a friend. And Blade is a great asset to the salon. To watch them training and supporting and winding him up(!) is very entertaining.

    This is one happy customer – and I’ve been back since (for quite a radical reshape!) and I now consider John my stylist, no question.

    Go to this salon – you won’t be disappointed!

  • Simone Greenfield (Sunday, February 07 16 08:47 pm GMT)

    I love Ed, who i regard as a hair artist, not yout average dresser! He must have been cutting and styling my hair for over a year now and he manages to turn my thick, dead straight and short hair
    into a work of art every time. I'd never thought that a lot could be done with my hair, but his experience and creativity proved me wrong. As a plus, there hasn't been a dull moment in his, John and
    Blade's company. Highly recommend them!

  • Angie O'Neill (Thursday, February 04 16 06:56 pm GMT)

    I can thoroughly recommend John Edwards Hair Salon.
    I walked in today with straw like, ugly dry hair.
    Two hours later, thanks to John, felt like a million dollars.
    John , Ed and Blade are not only true professionals but a lot of fun to be with.
    Thankyou x

  • Angie O'Neill (Thursday, February 04 16 06:46 pm GMT)

    What a great day!
    I walked into John Edward Hair Salon with straw like, ugly hair, and walked out feeling a million dollars.
    John, Ed and Blade are not only true professionals but great fun to be with.
    Thankyou X

  • Gaynor Waring (Wednesday, August 05 15 03:46 pm BST)

    My first time at John Edwards was a triumph. Edward did a beautiful cut on my challenging short, thick, grey hair. It was the best cut I have had in years.
    Thank You Edward - you are a star.
    The whole experience was excellent. Both Edward , John and Blade made me feel very welcome, they were very attentive despite being really busy. They gave me hair and local shopping tips as well as
    lots of giggles as they all have a wicked sense of humour! I shall return

  • Marianna (Tuesday, July 28 15 01:49 pm BST)

    Thank you John, Edward & especially Blade for transforming my two girls into their summer holiday look! Pink dip dye for one & red highlights for the other plus a lovely afternoon spent in
    your company again. I have two very happy girls!

  • Judi Ramsay (Wednesday, July 22 15 07:31 pm BST)

    Thank you Edward! I am very happy with the new colour & style. You listened, advised & left me feeling relaxed & comfortable. I'll be back...

  • Caron Davies (Sunday, July 19 15 11:36 am BST)

    To be honest I never thought I would be writing about a hairdresser but there is always a first time for everything..
    I went for a consultation with John as my hair was a disgrace, the colour was awful and the cut was just as bad, John spent ages chatting and discussing how he could correct this so I mad an
    appointment and the following week I headed off to get my hair done crossing my fingers and feeling sick at the same time.. from the moment I walked in the guys mad me feel at ease, John talked
    through every step that he was going to do bit by bit. nothing was to much trouble for him. when he finished I looked in that mirror and burst out crying not because it was horrible but because I
    have never seen my hair look so good, John is my angel, he is fantastic at what he does and I can not thank him enough... Girls you want your hair done go see the guys !!!!! you will not find better
    anywhere else and that I can promise you.. I am back to see John in eight weeks time and am looking forward to having my hair done again and that is something I never thought I would say... Love you
    guys !!!!

  • Patricia Mills (Friday, July 17 15 11:45 pm BST)

    I have always struggled with my thick hair, but was so pleased with the cut by John. Indeed, this is the best cut I have ever had. I was worried if I would be able to manage to style it myself, but I
    need not have worried, as John gave me lots of styling tips and my hair looks great. I have had many compliments about both the style and the cut. I wish I'd found this Salon before - highly

  • Nicky (Friday, May 22 15 06:29 pm BST)

    Had my hair cut, coloured and styled here for the first time today and John was the stylist. Really pleased with the result and feel I look much younger. John also gave me some great tips on how to
    blow dry my new hair style to get the best effects. Excellent customer service, friendly team and reasonable prices. I've already made my next appointment.

  • Amanda (Saturday, May 16 15 02:39 pm BST)

    Having been in last weekend to have my hair cur and being so impressed I returned today with my fourteen year old daughter. She has very curly hair , prone to being frizzy. John has cut her hair
    beautifully and took the time to explain to her how best to manage the dreaded frizz!! Blade then diffused her hair and the end result was amazing. She is so happy with it and loved the experience.
    Thank you everyone, will definitely be back .

  • Amanda (Saturday, May 09 15 10:10 pm BST)

    Thank you so much for a great hair cut. Really happy with my new look. Being in the salon was an enjoyable experience and I am looking forward to bringing my daughter in next week.

  • Caz Elliman (Saturday, May 02 15 02:17 pm BST)

    Had my hair cut and coloured by John and WOW what a transformation. Everyone I have seen has complimented me. Made an appointment after my Mum recommended him. Went in with an open mind and medium
    length hair and came out with an inverted bob with 3 shades of pink running through! Really enjoyed my visit. Great haircut in a great atmosphere.

  • kate hope (Tuesday, April 14 15 08:42 pm BST)

    Visited james edward for the first time today, wow what a fantastic experience ! thank you edward for an amazing re style its the best hair cut i have had in years ! A true profesional & a
    amazing hair sylist....

  • Lesley (Monday, March 30 15 10:03 am BST)

    Having had my hair cut by John since practically the time they moved to Dorchester, each time is as brilliant as the last.. and, as I had a do to go to on Friday I went in for John to \'titivate\' it
    as nothing beats John\'s expert hands! Needless to say compliments abounded during the evening and I had a wonderful time John - thank you :).
    Both John and Edward are wonderful fun and I always leave feeling on a high from not only their company but knowing that my hair looks a million dollars.
    Before finding John and Edward I always saw getting my hair cut as a \'job which needed to be done\' - now I look forward to my regular visit to their salon because it really is an experience that
    could never be found anywhere else. Try it once and you\'ll NEVER go anywhere else!
    Thank you again John x

  • Elaine Burkhardt (Thursday, November 27 14 04:26 pm GMT)

    Thank you Edward for colouring and cutting my hair today, I couldn\'t believe how you could make my fine hair feel so full and bouncy, I\'ve already had some lovely comments, feeling good.

  • Heather Baily (Wednesday, November 26 14 11:54 am GMT)

    John is an absolute genius! I have been with a fabulous London based hairdresser for over 10 years and never thought I would change hairdressers until I went John Edward on the personal
    recommendation of my sister. My first hair cut was so chic and stylish and very much in keeping with my professional role and lifestyle. John takes a real and genuine pride in his work and is happy
    to discuss all options before reaching for his scissor! I now have a horrendous journey from London to Dorchester every time I need my hair cut but the results are so worth it. Can\'t recommend these
    guys highly enough. Great cutting, great ambiance in the salon and and fabulous blow dry. Thanks John, you\'re a genius.

  • Joan Attwooll (Monday, November 24 14 04:54 pm GMT)

    Thank you Edward for restoring my faith in the hairdressing profession. My hair was in a \'bit of a state\' when I arrived, has to be said. The whole process was enjoyable/informative/inclusive. I am
    so pleased with the results. Loved the banter, and it was nice to meet John and your staff. All best wishes for Christmas and see you in the New Year.

  • Julie Gallichan (Saturday, November 22 14 02:46 pm GMT)

    Thank you John for fab hair cut and colour again Friday afternoon. Nothing is too much trouble and I feel you take the extra time to really understand the look, colour and cut I want. The style tips
    and demonstrating how to achieve the same effect at home is great - can\'t wait until my next visit

  • Jill (Friday, October 31 14 08:10 am GMT)

    I LOVE my new Hair Thank you Edward

  • Moi Dearle (Monday, September 29 14 08:11 pm BST)

    There is a "Sky Full of Stars" and it's after "Midnight" but I feel I must put "Ink" on paper and write another review in praise of The John Edward Salon. It has "Always Been In My Head" to write
    something special about a salon that is clearly a cut above the rest! Just recently John has worked his "Magic" again with the cut and colour he has given me. I am so so SO pleased! There are
    "Oceans" of hairdressers out there but I am sure all you fellow clients would agree that what we all feel for the J.E.S. must be "True Love"!! So please John and Ed don't ever let your salon fall
    into "Another's Arms" as all of us would be afraid that it would become another one of Dorchester's "Ghost Stories". So here's to the J.E.S. team wishing you continuing success. "Fly On Right
    Through. Like A Flock Of Birds"
    PS Again I say to you that the very best things to happen in Dorchester since the Romans are yourselves and Costas!!

  • Kirsten (Wednesday, September 10 14 06:14 pm BST)

    Thanks John for a fantastic hair cut today, it feels and looks great. It was lovely to meet you all, such a friendly salon, I'll definitely be back!

  • Pauline Moret (Wednesday, August 13 14 12:47 pm BST)

    Yet again another fab hair cut and colour by Edward seriously guys if you are looking for a good hair salon pay these boys a visit Dorchester's best kept secret you will not be disappointed. Great
    atmosphere relaxing wonderful sense of humour and you come out looking amazing.Thanks Edward love you and you to John xx

  • Hayley Fisher (Sunday, August 03 14 01:54 pm BST)

    When I first went to John Edwards my very bleached hair was so dry and in such bad condition! After my first cut and highlights with John last year the condition of my hair improved instantly and now
    I wouldn't go anywhere else! My hair feels so much healthier and my highlights are a lovely creamy blonde (no longer the horrible yellow blonde it had been turned into by other hairdressers). John
    and Edward both know exactly what is best for people's hair and what style will suit them and John, Edward and Chelsea are always chatty, friendly and entertaining. The first salon I can honestly say
    I trust 100% with my hair. :) thank you John!! Xx

  • Liza Rutherford (Friday, August 01 14 09:27 pm BST)

    Simply love my hair and had a lovely time at your salon today. Everyone I met today commented on how super my barnet looks - thanks very much guys! Looking forward to my next appointment... and
    adored the pooches too x

  • olivia (Monday, July 28 14 06:06 pm BST)

    I love my hair john did for the wedding I attended, not only a fab stylist but he was my hero for a day as I fainted and he came to my rescue, I would tell anyone to go to them I love both guys and
    Chelsea is a lovely girl x x x

  • Clare (Friday, July 18 14 03:58 pm BST)

    I have been having my hair cut and coloured by Edward for the past year. I have been really delighted after every visit – the colour is always so natural and the cut and finish make me feel like a
    new person. You can sink back in the chair and know that you are in very safe and highly experienced hands. Having trained at Vidal Sassoon and worked all over the world, there is not much that
    Edward doesn’t know about hair. Both John and Edward are great fun and an appointment at the salon is a lovely sociable experience, chatting to both of them and the other customers. Highly

  • Rachel (Wednesday, July 16 14 05:41 pm BST)

    Thank you for a lovely hair cut , and your wonderful company, I almost skipped the whole way home !

  • Ludmilla (Saturday, July 12 14 09:32 pm BST)

    so glad to have found your hair salon by chance and have my hair cut by John during our holidays in Dorchester. Such a fun atmosphere and good job on the hair - as soon as I stepped outside,
    strangers complimented on my hair! Thank you!

  • Paula (Monday, June 30 14 08:16 pm BST)

    I have had a complete re-style cut by John. I previously had a long bob and poker straight hair, I was struggling with re-growth and hair loss after having my son. I took a picture of the style I
    liked and talked it through with John. He made me look and feel amazing with a short choppy Victoria Beckham style, he talked me through styling it myself and I couldn't believe how well I re-created
    it. He showed me how to change it for a couple of different looks too. Great advice and personalised consultation, lovely atmosphere in the salon. Edward and the salons trainee (sorry I don't know
    her name) are great too - lots of laughs in this salon! Thanks John!

  • Lindsay Bishop (Wednesday, June 25 14 05:47 pm BST)

    Thank you both so much. Especially for telling it like it is:-) love the new hair cut and you guys are both amazing. Will be recommending you to everyone :-) see you soon Lindsay

  • Rebekah Coppard (Saturday, May 24 14 03:56 pm BST)

Lydia Hawke 
Walked in with my DIY colour and thick, frizzy hair and left with the
best cut, colour and blow-dry I have ever had. I'm still not sure how
John managed it! These guys really know what they're doing and it's nice
to have a proper consultation where they make you feel welcome and are
genuinely interested in your hair and you. I'll be a client for as long
as you guys are in Dorch. Thank you again - Lydia

"I never used to think about who I got my hair cut from, until I visited John Edwards!

My cut was not only superior to anything I've had before, but it has also grown out in a way that continues to have style.

These guys are truly masters of their craft.   "
