I am most likely what the hairdressers would call a nightmare. My hair is to my waist, quite thick and to top it up I have a very low pain threshold regarding my scalp so I don’t enjoy having my hair washed, combed or blow dried by anyone else than myself.
Alessandra was extremely gentle and very understanding. Also very thorough with the highlights and she really gave me her full attention when she worked with me. She had a very positive attitude and I felt very welcomed and at ease.
Prior to my booking I had an allergy patch test and she thoroughly discussed with me the colour options and the techniques so we could choose the best one suited for me.
I am quite low maintenance, I dry my hair naturally, I used ‘light in’ sprays in the past and what I wanted was my dark blond winter hair to just look as natural as possible, but sun kissed/lighter.
Alessandra took into account everything I told her to pick the style and colour and to blend the lighter ends with my darker roots.
I work in the beauty industry and I know from my clients that finding a hairdresser you trust is always a very personal and quite intimate choice. Women travel miles for years to their hairdresser they know even when they have moved the house as they don’t dare to experiment with someone new! Don’t fear the change with this salon!
I also happen to know that Ross keeps constantly expanding in hairdressing industry and pushes his limits and creativity with the hair competitions and hair photography.
I totally recommend Ross Charles Hairdressing salon to everyone! You can trust them with your hair. They are up to date with fashion but they will also respect your choices and limits.
Classy, family run salon with great vibes👌☀️

Grazie Maurizio per le cinque stelle !
Just went in for a quick cut and nothing too exciting. They washed my hair and what I assume was a head massage. I wanted one length on the sides and a bit of styling on top which they did very well. Offered me coffee and was expecting some conversation but none was struck. Very good haircut nonetheless. Would consider returning but would book in advance.

They cut your hair how you actually want it to be cut. Very professional.
When I arrived in salon today I was tired and cold, in fact not even feeling like being pampered. However after time with Lara, Kennedy and team I was uplifted, coffeured and looking gorgeous (which at my time of life is quite an achievement!). Thanks to everyone at RC and to Ross for enabling his staff to continue to deliver excellent results and service time after time.
Whilst on a weekend trip to York, I realised I’d left my hair straighteners at home. I called Ross Charles in the morning, and even though they don’t open on a Monday, he so kindly agreed to slot me in and straighten my hair for me.
On arrival, he really politely told me that my hair was in need of cutting, it truly was!! So he took the time out of his busy admin morning to cut and style my hair for me. For the director of a salon to do this for someone who will probably never be back to the salon again due to location, speaks volumes about how passionate and friendly they really are. If I lived closer, I would one million percent make RC my hairdresser.
Ross saved me from walking round York looking like I’d been electrocuted, thank you sooo much! On top of all this, he also gave me some amazing hair advice and some lovely samples! Customer service masterclass. And most importantly my hair cut is beautiful!! If I could give you 6 stars I would, thank you again ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

First time in a real salon, the young lady that did my treatment was lovely and explained the process before and during, my hair was cut by Ross who was equally pleasant and was great to talk to, he talked me through what would work best style wise for me (my hair is pretty long...) really pleased with the service, I would recommend to anyone,
Thanks guys 🙏
Nice, relaxing atmosphere. Good advice when I asked for an opinion. Always friendly and helpful.
Professional and fantastic ... the hair exactly as i wanted !
Will definitely be back

Top marks. Very pleased with the haircut by Dan again today. He gets me to think about different styles which I would not otherwise think of. Always come out of Ross Charles very happy.
Since moving to York I have my hair cut by Dan at Ross Charles and I cannot recommend them enough. Great attention to detail, never feels rushed and always open about what style would suit and why. Everyone super friendly and caring - five star treatment! Good range of products to suit particular hair styles too.
