No Beauty Group Salon's in my area, otherwise would have paid a fiver for my chick to get a Brazilian wax.
#3
hot deal , but how do you find out where the locations are ??:?
#4
go to beauty group or hair group web site
#5
Even some of the more expensive activities look like good value. H&R

absolute load of rubbish business. Hair group never return your calls and are never open to take them.

Bought the special hair cut from Play.com when it was £4.99 and had it 8 months and expires in a few months.

+1 Totally agree, this is a con.:x

They will never allocate you a saloon. Person on phone will say, they are opening new one in your locality in 2-4 weeks and suggest wait. This story repeats. There is no refund after specific period and I have lost my tenner in this scam.

Save money!

It's NOT a con!

I have used 2 of these with no troubles at all. Also bought DD a pet shoot one for Xmas and a family potrait one for us. Not used yet as I'm not well enough, but when I am, it will be fine. I know a few others that have had no problems either.

When you receive the packs you are given a referance number. You then call the number on form and they will ask you which salon is preferred. They will then either give you their direct number or call them on your behalf and call you back.

Have bought 2 haircuts (1 for DD & I) and also a family shoot for an anniversary present for a relative.

From The Hair Group website:

"The purpose of this website is to indicate where (geographically) the nearest participating salon is. Due to confidentiality we cannot divulge full details of the top salons we have as members.

As these salons are very busy and we're giving away a stunning offer, all contact must start with the coupon coming to us here in Watford. The way our promotions work is that you send in the coupon and the computer locates your nearest salon.That salon will then get your details and call you to book you in. But please do use this website to check by county as to which areas have a participating salon. When we receive the coupon we'll process it for you. If you want to be allocated to a salon near work - please include the address of your workplace on a separate piece of paper accompanying the coupon. "

Has anyone had any experience of the "Paintballing for eight"?

I would really love to buy this for my brother's 21st. I cant even find where the ("over 100") locations of the Paintballing are.

Exactly the same experience I had. I bought two haircut vouchers and gave one to my brother and one to my Mum. Despite repeated phone calls and chasers, they were never called back.

Wouldn't have minded so much if it was for me but they were presents!
#24
DO NOT BOOK THIS - IT IS MORE HASSLE THAN ITS WORTH AND YOU WILL MOSTLY LIKELY GET NO MORE THAN A BAD HEAD AND END UP OUT OF POCKET ! :x
#25
Can't speak for other offers.....although the Paintball one is naff....since you then have to pay TWICE the costs for paintballs than you would on a normal booking..

But the hairdressing one...at least in the North east...is a total con trick.

Only 2 salons in the NE....and both will put you off time after time....then they impose the rules on the voucher i.e they tell YOU which day you can go, you have NO CHOICE in the matter!!!...and also the time you have to be there......and you WILL get a trainee to cut ( butcher !! ) your hair....even at £5 it's as close to theft as you'll get.

Ignoring the BS about "£5" for up to 20 people...you have to pay £10 per 100 for paintballs (RIP OFF!! )....minimum you'll use is 500paintballs each per day...so at 8 mates + brother you're looking to spend at least £450 for 9 people...and that excludes food etc....

Really? Have you read the blurb from The HairGroup...with whom you TRY to book this??

If not, here's the link:

http://www.hairgroup.co.uk/terms.htm

It's a CON...

1 - They won't even tell you where the salons are " Confidential information " apparently....:whistling:
2- You DO NOT book direct, you have to post the voucher in, they then process from Watford within 30 days...and you have to use it within 90 days....as per their T&C at Hair Group
3- Unlike the blurb which tell you it's for a wash, head massage and cut....HairGroup inform you it's a dry cut only, and they'll decide what level of staff will cut your hair...so take it as read it's a trainee.
4 - They will tell you what day and time you can go and to which salon...( if you can't then tough luck).

All of the above points are taken from their T&C, so don't shoot this messenger...but Hey, if you think that's a good deal...go for it.

Bought one of these last year for g/f when it was £4.99 from play.com. She phoned and got an appointment in Dundee for the following week. The salon was of high quality and she was given coffee and even got a facial massage while she was having her hair done.

Oh, and they trimmed our daughter's fringe quickly for free too. I expect you mileage will vary with your location, but if you live in the Dundee area, then this is worth going for, IMO.
#29
Is the woman in the pic supposed to have had a 'professional haircut'? Is it supposed to look all over the place? If so, what's the point :/
#30
Thanks! :thumbsup:
#31
Was tempted but Saturdays are the only days free for me!!
#32

"ditto"
Have used the Hair Group for a good few years for various haircut offers(they often do free ones in magazines) and the salons are always top notch.Got the Asda one last time and it was a bit of a hassle getting booked as they were overwhelmed with the numbers, also had to travel about 12 miles, was worth it tho. I would say you do have to be patient and expect to travel but it is worth it.
PS I am in Coatbridge so Scotland seems to fair well.
