To enjoy your Richard Ward Hair & Metrospa experience to it’s fullest potential, please take this opportunity to familiarise yourself with our salon guidelines.
With regard to Coronavirus concerns in London, it is our duty of care to take every precaution to keep our clients and staff safe.
We are constantly monitoring the situation and encourage all clients to follow current advice from Public Health England (www.phe.org.uk). We strongly encourage reducing the risk of both contracting and spreading the virus by following official guidelines on hygiene procedures.
The salon is following all Public Health England and Government advice about infection and prevention. We follow stringent hygiene procedures for the sanitisation of the salon, tools and equipment, as well as taking extra precautions during this time:
• All kit is sterilised before and after every client appointment
• The salon is deep-cleaned every day with bleach and antibacterial products, including areas which are regularly touched such as door handles, toilet flushes, taps and card machines
• If any member of staff or anyone they live with experience flu-like symptoms, they will not come to work and will self-isolate as per updated Government guidelines
• All staff are taking personal hygiene seriously by following Government guidelines closely
• Antibacterial hand wash, wipes and sanitiser gel are available for use by clients visiting the salon
We are continuing to monitor the situation closely and updating our procedures as necessary; for any clients with upcoming appointments, please call ahead of your visit if you have any concerns.
Allergy Alert Testing
This information applies if you are having any colouration, including highlights, applied to the hair on your head or any other area of your body (eg. eyebrows, eyelashes, beards, etc). The use of hair dyes is strictly regulated and their ingredients are approved for use in hair colour in the UK, EU and across the world. However, an allergy can develop over time so it is possible that you could have an allergic reaction even if you have not had one in the past. Therefore, we require all clients to follow our allergy testing procedure. New salon customers or existing clients who have not had a colour application or lash/brow tinting services in our salon in the preceding 6 months must complete our Allergy Alert Questionnaire online and may be required to have an allergy alert test at the salon at least 48 hours before their appointment. If you have a reaction to hair colour or to an allergy alert test, you must seek medical advice. For further information, please speak to one of our technical or Metrospa team who will be happy to advise.

(Breakfast Club promotion not available in conjunction with any other offer.)
Traditionally most salons close on a Monday so that staff can have their ‘weekend’ and take two days off in a row. We are open on a Monday to accommodate our regular clients but with a skeleton staff to suit those team members who prefer to take a day off during the week. Therefore, if you wish to experience the full ‘bells and whistles’ vibe and see the salon operating at full pelt, we advise you choose another day to come in as Mondays will under-deliver on expectations. We don’t always have catering facilities on a Monday, either and sometimes we are operating our Richard Ward Academy for education. However, if peace and tranquillity are what you require and prefer the salon when it’s less hectic, the Monday experience might be for you!
Arriving late will limit the time for your treatment or service, thus decreasing its effectiveness and your enjoyment of your experience. If you are late for an appointment, your operator will complete as much of the treatment or service as possible within the time that remains but you will be charged for the full service. All treatment times are approximate.
Consultations at Richard Ward are offered as a complimentary service. Please speak to the reception team to schedule a free 15 minute appointment for any hair, colour, beauty or service offering which you may require our expert opinion on.
Technology willing, you will receive a text message 48 hrs prior to your booking confirming your appointment (or a call at busy times).
Please be aware that any bookings made via the the Richard Ward app are not confirmed unless the reception team have spoken with you directly or you have received a text confirmation.
Personal Belongings & Valuables
We cannot be responsible for any personal items brought into the salon or Metrospa. Items left in our cloakroom are left entirely at the owner’s risk.
We do not take responsibility for any items of clothing damaged during the technical or colouring process. We advise clients to remove all valuable or high-necked items of clothing before their service commences.
Freedom to Roam Policy
Clients can feel free to move between whichever stylist, barber, colour technician, beauty therapist or nail technician they wish, whenever they wish.
Pre and Post Consultations/MOTs
Your operator will conduct a full consultation prior to and post your treatment or service. For existing clients it is our policy to conduct a Hair/Colour/Beauty MOT every third visit to ensure we are on track to deliver your dream hair and beauty goals. Should this fail to happen, our Salon Manager Gavin will ensure you receive a glass of champagne (or your alternative favourite tipple) with our, and your operator’s, compliments.
Post-visit Visual Records
With the aim of ensuring consistency and continuity with your service from our technical, cutting & styling and barbering team, we would suggest that you ask your operator to take a picture of your finished look on your personal mobile phone which can act as an on-going reference for any future appointments and treatment plans. Our make-up artists offer the same service and we particularly recommend this for bridal trials.
The use of mobile phones within the Metrospa for voice calls is prohibited and we respectfully request that mobiles are on silent. Further, please at all times respect the privacy of other clients who are enjoying treatments or services within the salon.
We offer a Vegan alternative for most of our services – facials, massage, Memory Forme, as well as our menu of course. Please ask reception for more details.
Our expert technical team are always looking to maximise the strength, health and well being of our clients’ hair during any technical service performed at the salon. The Smartbond service will be offered as the ideal solution to ensure hair lustre and vitality post colour service.
Children are welcome in the salon at all times. We only request that parents take responsibility for them in our Metrospa to ensure we can maintain a peaceful, tranquil environment.
We welcome your four-legged friends into the salon but unfortunately due to unrelenting licensing laws not the Metrospa. We ask you to be considerate of other guests at the salon and keep your dog on a lead and with you at all times, our only prerequisite is you take responsibility for any little accidents which may occur during their visit.
Please inform your operator if there are any medical conditions that they need to be aware of before your treatment or service commences.
At the time of booking, please inform reception as to whether you require our private room facility (charges apply). Privatisation, group bookings or late openings are available upon request. Please contact us for a quotation.
Gift Vouchers are non-returnable, non-refundable and non-transferable and cannot be extended. All Gift Vouchers are valid for 6 months. Please inform reception of any vouchers you wish to use at the time of booking your appointment.
