Came in few weeks ago because my hair was destroyed from home “experiencing”. Managed to get appointment same day with Phillips and can’t say thank you enough. Phillips was welcoming, he listen to what happened and he made sure he understood the what outcome I wanted. We had to cut quite a bit of hair but he managed to save as much as he could, recommended hair care and what we will do next time. Really happy with results.

Amazing customer service. Philip cut my daughters hair and he took his time explaining what products he was going to use and what he was doing . Also gave me home care treatment suggestions. If you are looking for a new hair salon definately recommend 5th element.

Excellent haircut, Anna was very professional and gave me lots of useful information on what she was doing. Best hairdresser I've been to in Reading by far!
Managed to book a very last minute haircut this week at 5th element. Anna was very knowledgeable and helpful during our consultation prior to my cut. Gave lots of great advice about managing my hair and discussing the chosen hairstyle. The haircut was perfect, exactly what I had asked for and was done quickly with lots of attention to detail. Will definitely be coming back and couldn't reccomend more.
