What people say about us

  • “The service at Popham is excellent and Kate is very caring and helpful. She basically saved my hair and I am so happy that I went to Popham rather than anywhere else. The customer service there is driven by care and passion more than business, I totally recommend it. Just pop in to their Salon and they will meet your expectations.”

  • “My first experience of Popham really couldn’t have been better. The staff were friendly and professional and Shane did a fantastic job. He talked with me beforehand about what sort of cut would work best for me and we agreed on the length and style before he started cutting, a big difference from other salons, where you’re never quite sure what you’re going to get. And I’m absolutely delighted with the result – it feels ‘bespoke’, not just another off-the-shelf style. It’s hands-down the best haircut I’ve ever had. Thank you so much Shane – you’ve converted me to Popham for good!”

  • “Here I am again. A nice sit down and a cappuccino. Just time to read the headlines then into the chair. I know that I will not have to move for the next hour. Yes, the sink comes to you ! After 60 minutes of what only can be described as pure relaxation the magic has been done. I emerge with a great hair cut knowing that for the next 6 weeks I can simply wash and go and my hair will fall into its correct place.Thanks again Piotr. I will be back.”

    April 2018

  • “When I came to the salon Vitor was still busy with another client, so I had the opportunity of sitting and observing (while having a coffee and a glance at the paper) and this reminded me why I love coming here, and why I have stuck with Pophams for 7 years after trying practically every other salon in Oxford. It was calm – busy with four other clients- but each duo of client and hairdresser were absorbed in what they were doing. Great music in the background. Vitor was cutting his client’s hair methodically and precisely, they weren’t talking much but I swear his client had a smile on her face literally the whole time: another client who had just come in was having an animated conversation about what she was looking for that day, and there followed an intense engagement of discussion, examination of her hair, trying things out, keeping eye contact in the mirror – it was balletic. Another client was having her hair coloured and she and her hairdresser were talking and laughing, the last client was actually on her own while her colour was doing it’s job, and she was texting on her phone for a while then she got up and had a chat and a laugh with the receptionist and then another coffee. All so ordinary and yet all so exceptional – such a happy atmosphere – it felt that everyone was having a good time, great energy between clients and hairdressers and a feeling of utter confidence in the outcomes. And, of course, another great cut from Vitor – and a good conversation too. Thank you!”

    January 2018

  • “Sarah has been doing my hair for well over a year. It wasn’t great before but with consistent good colour, cutting and excellent advice on looking after it, my hair actually looks really great. I am so pleased. It just goes to show that if you find a brilliant hairdresser, keep going back! Very happy!”

    January 2018

  • “I have never been so happy with my hair, Thank you Jo. Jo is an amazing hairdresser – I have waited 64 years for her!”

    January 2018

  • “Lovely personable experience from start to finish. The look was just what I wanted. Thank you so much.”

    January 2018

  • “My daughter gets nervous about going to the hairdresser, but she came out smiling and so pleased with her cut from Ella. Ella listened to everything she said and made sure she knew what my daughter wanted. She’s given her a great cut and has helped boost her confidence too. She loves her new style and we’re delighted we can see her face again!”

    January 2018

  • Thank you for taking so much trouble, I’m very happy with the result and it was a very enjoyable experience.

    December 2017

  • “Rating should actually read “5++

    Popham never fails to please – and having my hair done by Ali is such a pleasure.

    She takes such pride in what she does – and achieves a work of art every time.

    Thank you again.”
