Michael is a technical magician. He really studies your face to maximise the contours and angles. I've never had such a meticulous cut - you walk out seeing yourself from a new perspective.

Lisa Armstrong - Fashion Director, The Telegraph

Michael is a genius stylist who can make any woman - well, this one at least - feel her best self.

At Nyumba the staff really understand a customer. Even for me, with no much hair left, they do their best to make you look and feel great. And I always love the warm and welcoming atmosphere at the salon, I could spend a whole afternoon there!

Gianluca Longo - Style Editor

Missing my old neighbour on Mount Street, but so happy he has not moved too far away to his new beautiful new salon on Sloane Square. I still remain completely faithful to Michael and his team for the best hair cuts ever and a huge thanks to Michael for always supporting my brand for so many years.

You'll want to check in for the weekend, not just an appointment.

A cut with Michael is like having Botox for the hair - he can take years off you with a few snips.

Can a haircut really make you 10 years younger?

Rachel Johnson - The Lady Magazine

After a blow dry my hair feels fortified and I'm convinced Leonor Greyl hair treatment is the best for my hair.


Visiting Nyumba is like entering another world, with its striking and original African decor. It's exotic yet has a totally serene ambiance, and I left in a dreamlike state having been pampered from head to toe.

Charlie Miller - Grazia

Michael is singularly the greatest hairdresser on the planet.

Claudia Winkleman

Michael is a genius with his scissors - He cuts with passion and understands the angles of a face like no other.. not only is he the best hairdresser, he is a great friend ... I have trusted him with "framing my face" for the past 12 years - including at my wedding to Prince Nikolaos. I always leave his salon feeling energised and of course sexier than when I walked in.

Tatiana Blatnik

Precision cutting and inspiration!

Sarah Bailey, Editor of Red

A visit to Nyumba is like a session with the best glam squad in town. Michael is amazing on hair, Nel gives the most incredible skin-plumping stem cell facial, Danuta is the go-to for reflexology and Sanita is amazing at nails. Every time I go, I leave feeling better than brand new. I actually wish I could live here.

Sarah Harris, Fashion Features Director at Vogue

Michael has been cutting my hair for years and I cannot live without him now, Giulia is the best colourist in London and together they create the perfect teams they even did my hair for my wedding many years ago! Having a great hair cut and colour gives me the confidence I need when meeting clients in my Interior Decorating business and most recently for my appearance on Ladies of London (most of the comments on my Instagram posts are about my hair and that's all thanks to Michael and Giulia!). Having two children and an extremely busy lifestyle can be very hectic and going to Nyumba is the perfect escape, I always leave feeling completely pampered.

All the stylists are extremely talented and skilled at the best blow dries, nails and makeup when you need it. Nyumba has an unbeatable glam-squad for those red carpet moments! As for Michael, I'll never let anyone else touch my hair...
