It’s always unnerving to try a new hairdresser but luckily, I arrived in the area not long after your new arrival, Caitlin and she did a brilliant job from day one. I’ve already been back for a repeat experience and it was just as good. Thanks Caitlin!

A great visit today, Rhys was suffering with a bad back but that in no way affected the appointment and he was as attentive as ever. There was a really nice atmosphere as Rhys’ colleagues helped him and he in turn helped Paula on reception.

A fabulous salon! Nigel (cut) and Gienette (colour) are a simply brilliant - you can’t fail to come out of the salon feeling amazing. Always receptive to my changing whims they cut and colour my hair to perfection. Add to this the treats from the Running Fox and other snacks, it is like visiting friends.

First visit to this hairdressing salon, called at short notice for a blow dry , got decent appointment time considering

Warm welcome, didn’t have to wait that long , hairdresser had a chat about what I wanted done ,really relaxed but professional ;

very happy with the service , hair looks and feels great

Nice pot of ginger tea while I was sitting, when Caitlin the stylist had finished with me ,I wasn’t rushed out the door, was able to sit and enjoy my cuppa ☕️

In all a very pleasant experience
Thank you

Thank you Rhys for a lovely cut and experience. I’ve always found this salon has a nice peaceful aura which is just what is needed at times. It didn’t feel rushed or hurried but nor was it too long in the chair. I just wish my hair would grow faster.
One thought I had after I left the salon; I love the massage element of the process and I’d honestly pay for an extended appointment to have this for five or ten minutes, just a thought!
