After a history of other stylists who didn’t understand my hair, it was a relief to have a cut by someone who does!
The first time in a few decades that I enjoyed being at a hairdressers! Lovely atmosphere too

Gary and Claire were very friendly and put my 4 year old daughter at ease quickly. The salon was calm which also helped. Gary tidied up her hair after a friend had cut her hair whilst playing hairdressers. I'm very grateful. We look forward to returning when she has more hair for him to work with. :-)

I needed a hair cut less than 2 weeks before my wedding. I am new to the area and so finding a stylist was a bit scary but Gary was amazing. Such a lovely man, who put me at ease with his confidence and kind manner. He made my time in the salon a delight with wonderful conversation and a beautiful result. I’ll definitely be back.

Claire is also a brilliant colourist who goes to great lengths to achieve the best results. It is a treat to be in such a stylish and relaxed environment. Coffee is excellent too.

I’m a new client who came across the salon given its new location - I was delighted to be seen for a patch test and appointment all within a couple of days. A relaxing morning in the salon for a full head of colour and cut with Claire. She explained and gave me choice with the colour, cut carefully and even finished with a lovely blow dry and curl! Will certainly be back.
