Jogger in Wapping

Hi

I don't know how old this advert is but I'm 31 female and regularly run in Wapping. I either run in and around Wapping or hit the gym. A running buddy would be good and make it less of a chore.

KENKOU

I've just move to Wapping and on a evening jog came acorss Kenkou Spa. I was greeted by a lovely gentleman who opened the door and invited me into the Spa. Although it was little quiet it had a lovely atmosphere. I was told it was under new management/ownership and would be offering many more services such as permanent hair removal and skin rejuvenation. I booked in for a consultation a week later and treatment later that week. The service i received was great! The aesthetic consultant that treated me was pleasent and i did not feel uncomfortable at all. I would definatly recommend Kenkou to my friends and family, infact my mum is coming over to visit me next week and i have booked her in to get her hair done and a manicure!

If you didn't enjoy your experiance there before it will definately be worth your while to take another visit!

Jogging partner or group on St Kath Dock area

Hi I'm newish to wapping, living a stone throw from waitrose. I would like to start jogging and wanted a jogging partner/group to start jogging with. The main reason is weight loss and the long term goal is a respectable level of distance running. My current fitness is quite low and so someone to bear with me for the first few weeks will be much appreciated..I'm available most evenings from 7pm onwards and some weekends.

If you are interested mail me here or to

about kenkou

i used to work for kenkou my self and i found that that salon itself is lovely, but the management side of things were terrible. the boss Keren does not even know about hairdressing and when you tried talking to her about things she thought she knew best but she didnt have a clue. thats why there is vast client loss and staff. trust me best thing to do is leave. as you see she posted sumthing on here so unprofesh

Hairdressers in Wapping

There is a new salon on Wapping Wall. Its small, but I love it. They have some very experienced senior stylists or if want something simpler the juniors are competant and good value. The number of regular customers speak volumes.

They really appreciate your custom too. I defected from Kenkou earlier this year.

Looking tennis partner in Wapping

Hey!

I'm looking to play tennis with someone in Wapping.

I used to play actively years ago so am not a beginnner but not a pro either...

Mon Jul 20

DONT GO TO KENKOU!!!!

THis salon is terrible! The hairdresser recently was sacked after a customer complained. They give out refunds faster than haircuts and they have no idea what they are doing. One person I know threatened to take them to court for such poor service and permanent damage to her hair.

cut your won hair, you will be safer!

wanted!! running partner!!

Hello, my names haj and i realy want to start running but im new to the London (wapping) and dont have a running partner....anybody interested?!? give me an e-mail and let me know....ps nuthing hard core...a mile or 2 to beggin with. thanks

Sun Nov 30

When I went to KenKou I wasn't at all impressed.I thought the level of service was pretty bad, talking over your head to other staff and completely disregarding what hair colour I had asked for. Its over priced and not worth it, the new management seem to think they are exclusive and high quality but that is totally wrong. I also found the manager to be quite rude to the other staff but fakely nice to the customers which wasn't comfortable.

Personally i'd love a local place for hair and beauty but Id rather drive out to get what I asked for. Just because something looks nice it doesn't mean it has a good reputation. Its a shame!

Wapping House Cleaner

Hi,

I have found an excellent house cleaner who usually works in South West London but is prepared to come to Wapping only if she can work a full day. As we only require a half day I was wondering if anyone out there might need her for the second (or first) half of Fridays?

She comes very highly recommended.

Give me a call on 075 1578 3350 if you are interested

Sham posts from Kenkou

It's pretty obvious that it's someone from Kenkou who is posting these glowing reports. Stop insulting our intelligence - we're not that thick.

The place looks pretty but I was generally unimpressed with the services levels - not polished or professional. I don't pay to listen to your staff gossip at high volume whilst doing each other's hair, which is what I experienced every time I went in there.

The prices have been inflated since the change in management as well.

Sat Jun 07

perry you left without any form of notice

perry you have been paid even though you left us for another company and lied to us only working with us for 4 days you stranded the hair team during christmas. you have been paid we have reciept of your wages and you no that. You signed a contract with us and then went and took a job else- where!

Furniture removal

No, not heard, but it is a great idea. The rotherhithe tunnel will be a pain to get through on a bus.

Nope - there's the Waitrose down towards the Tower, and Sainsbury's at Whitechapel. Nearest Tesco I think is at Surrey Quays - coupla stops on tube.

Hairdresser in or near Wapping

Hi

Can anyone recommend a good women's hairdresser? I have tried Blue in Wapping but am not overly impressed since it has converted to Toni and Guy.

I prefer hairdressers that are technically competent, reasonably priced, comfortable, but don't talk at you the whole time you are getting your haircut. Maybe too much to ask??

Mon Feb 12

I have lived here for 13 years and havent found one yet... White Swan is the nearest I think, or try joining the gay group at Canary Wharf ... CWGLA they call themselves.. try to google it ..

I prefer Backstreet myself..

1st pub on right as you get into Wapping (town of Ramsgate) used to be gay friendly / gay run .. and there used to be a gay group met in pub next to Waitrose on a wednesday evening .. now part of the CWGLA .. they meet at Beluga Bar in Canary Wharf on thursday evenings..
