I recently visited Hunter and Walsh and left feeling incredibly happy with my new haircut. My stylist Freya was exceptional at her job, demonstrating a high level of skill and professionalism. She listened to my preferences and delivered exactly what I wanted. The entire experience was pleasant and I will definitely be returning for future haircuts. Highly recommended!

This is not for public broadcast please . Éveryone I came into contact with were excellent and seeing Emma as my stylist for the first time in ages was wonderful . I’ve been meaning to mention for a while now could you please fix the basins . They both slump down when in use and it’s really heavy on the shoulders . Not quite what you need ! Not sure if the massagers still work either ? Sorry to mention this but I’d want to know :)
Ps I love my new hair style and the colour thank you . ppps stylist list needs updating .

Hi Sandra,

Thank you for your kind review! We are thrilled to hear that you had a wonderful experience with Emma as your stylist and that you love your new hairstyle and colour. We appreciate your feedback about the basins and will definitely look into fixing them as soon as possible. We want to make sure that all our clients are comfortable during their time with us. We are having trouble with the left hand basin regarding the massager as it's intermittent, we have had the control pad replaced twice as that is what the manufacturer suggested it could be,I will be now looking at getting an electrician to look at it.. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We will also update the stylist list as per your suggestion.

Thank you for choosing our salon and we hope to see you again soon!

Warmly,
Nadine

I think it was Emma who cut my hair, but can’t find her name on the list above.
I got very thin hair and cutting them into a good facon is a challenge. I always bring photos of previous haircuts that I liked. And Emma did a perfect job, I’m so satisfied with the cut. And I love a good head massage, too!

I was a longstanding customer who once loved feeling indulged at Hunter & Walsh however the last few appointments have been decided lacking wand my most recent was my last. I was not greeted or offered a coffee, my hair was wrapped in a non-absorbent towel so the water just ran off onto me, and I felt discarded to make payment whilst the next client became the instant focus. Nadine is a fabulous person and hairdresser, and my hair is admittedly awkward to cut, but we differed to agree over layering so for me the style lacked so much needed shape. I ended up cutting it myself at home. I just felt that the whole experience was lacking hugely. I used to love feeling looked after when at H&W but not getting that at all any more. So disappointed such a shame. I cancelled the next appointment and I would have liked the opportunity to explain why but no one asked me.

Hi Ula,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us., I'm sorry I'm only now responding but I have been on holiday the last couple of weeks..

I appreciate your loyalty as a longstanding customer and I'm sorry to hear about your recent experience on your last appointment in January.

Myself and my team take great pride in providing our clients with exceptional service, so it is disappointing to hear that you did not feel welcomed or taken care of during your last few appointments. Myself and my team understand the importance of feeling pampered and indulged while at the salon and I apologise for falling short on that.

I also apologise for the inconvenience with the non-absorbent towel and I'm sorry that you felt discarded when you came to pay, as you have got to know me over the last year and a half of styling your hair I would of hope you would know this is not how I like any of my clients to feel at the end of their appointment.

Regarding your hair cut, i apologise that you weren't happy with your hair cut on your last appointment.
If you had called and spoken to me I would have been more than happy for you to have come back in so I could have taken more off your layers and added more shaping to your hair.

I am truly disappointed that you have decided not to continue your appointments with us and I'm sorry it wasn't brought to my attention that you had cancelled your next appointment as I would of called you personally if I knew why you had cancelled.
If you'd still like to call and speak to me Im back in the salon on Tuesday.
Kind regards
Nadine

Freya is seriously masterful with hair! Such a beautiful, warm, genuine person. My slightly wild hair needed help after a few years of not visiting a salon. Freya worked her magic with both colour & cut .. blending tones to match grown out silver roots and layering/ trimming long curly hair. The results are amazing!
I highly recommend her but book ahead as she has a waiting list! (yes, she's that good!)
Hunter and Walsh is a lovely place, everyone super friendly!

Freya did an amazing cut with my curly hair. I explained what I was hoping to aim for and she just did exactly what I had in mind and what I tried to describe. I'm going back for a colour treatment soon and I'll be leaving the shade decision to Freya because I really felt confident with her advice. Lovely relaxed atmosphere in this salon; I can feel a bit awkward in some salons.
