The best haircut-Cey

Appointment verified by SaloniQ Software

I recently had a haircut appointment with Cey and once again, I am beyond impressed. Cey truly understands my hair and always knows exactly what I need.

From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed and comfortable. Cey's attention to detail is unmatched. They took the time to listen to my preferences and offered expert advice on what would suit me best. The precision and care in their work are evident in the fantastic result.

I left the salon feeling refreshed and confident, with a haircut that perfectly matches my style and personality. The entire experience was top-notch, from the friendly service to the relaxing atmosphere. I can't recommend Cey highly enough!

Thank you Cey for consistently providing such outstanding service. I'll definitely be back for my next appointment!

Cey spent time planning my cut and properly understanding what I needed as well as putting me at my ease. This was my 2nd cut with Cey and I have been very happy with both cuts leaving the salon and when looking after it myself between visits. Hair wash was also well done. Could do with a better drinks offer, I just ask for water now Then I could give a 5 star service rating!

My 11 year old son came in for a complete restyle. He had very long (down to his elbows) naturally curly hair. We showed some pictures which showed mens hairstyles that were cut close/shaved around the ears and neck but left longer curly hair on top, dropping over the forehead, almost into the eyes.
I told the stylist I was concerned about it being cut too short as there would be some 'spring back' from his curls making it look shorter.
She said not to worry and then proceeded to cut his hair far too short so that is exactly what happened. She blow dried his hair forward and straight, I assume to give the illusion of length but despite that, it still sat high up on his hairline. Now, when it's wet and curls, it's even shorter. We're now having to grow his hair to achieve the look he came in for when he had masses of hair in the first place.

Cey goes above and beyond in giving the style I’m looking for, even tho I don’t know myself half the time. Plus she is the nicest of people and always helpful and cheerful.
That goes a long way with someone like me who doesn’t like going to the hairdressers!!!

Aysha has the right attitude and the wish to treat their customers right.she always shows me colour chart and sit with me to discuss what I want and how can I get it.
The senior stylist there named dint feel to need to have a discussion with me on my first visit which surprised me but then I kept visiting due to aysha services
I also find another stylist unasked opinion and remarks quite disrespectful that too towards your clients.he was unprofessional the way he treated me ,one needs to have some kind of rapport if you wishes to comment but he never even greeted me and passed distasteful remarks.
