Appointment verified by SaloniQ Software

I booked my appointment ages ago online - it was an important one as it’s for a wedding.
I had booked with Laura- and received a txt earlier in the week to confirm.
When I turned up I was told Laura no longer works Fridays anymore. Obviously this was very stressful. I said I was prepared to go home and come back- and they found me an appointment for 2.5 hours later. So HOB mistake was a massive inconvenience, since I was prepping for my niece’s wedding.
Afterwards they were polite and gave me some free samples, but in retrospect this wasn’t adequate.
Lawrence- who I had my appointment with was very good. So I was happy with the results.

I have to say that this is the best my hair colour has looked ever!! Olivia literally fixed a bad job from my previous hair disaster and I am over the moon with the results. My previous “hair disaster was with another hairdresser not associated with Hobs”. Honestly so happy with my visit today and I had a really relaxing experience. To add, all the staff were really nice and there was a lovely vibe to the salon.

I thought it be a good idea to colour my hair and do some DIY at home!! Never ever doing that again. My hair was more colourful than the rainbow. I stepped into the salon and was recommended to see Olivia. She gave me a consultation and then proceeded with making my hair look normal again! I am in love with this colour, a softer shade of brown. I had been recommended to use olaplex with the colour to prevent any damage, followed by a bio one mask. So happy of my experience, thank you Olivia.

I believe that colour on my head was left for too long as poor girl was busy applying colour for another client. it was wrong colour after all and she had to apply toner to balance it. So I have spent more than an hour with chemicals on my head . I had itchy and burning sensation in my scalp. Staining around hairline was very difficult to remove and resulted in skin irritation. Worst experience ever. I had an amazing experience during my previous visit. I am so sad that it went wrong this time and I didn’t know if I will be able to come back.
