I have little time for styling, straightening, drying even. When I get my hair cut at Sands it feels as if I’m catching up on a couple of months of having neglected it.. Lovely staff, lovely atmosphere all round nice way to spend an hour or so.

Having had my hair done for the last 10 years by the same stylist miles away, I decided to try Sands Hairdressers after looking at reviews online. Kaye did my hair. Super impressed. After a consultation to find out what style I was wanting, Kaye magically made it happen. She did it exactly as I wanted and more. Cant recommend enough. Friendly staff and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Will definately be back. Give it a try you won’t be disappointed.

I have been going to Sands for many years and always had a fab experience. Had a cut and highlights with Alex today for the first time and she has done a superb job - my hair feels so much healthier and I feel so much better after my visit. She particularly understood my fine hair problems and was great to chat to. She is awesome! All the other staff were lovely too. Can’t fault.

Stuart has been my hairdresser for at least 15 years, he knows my hair so well, he has never misinterpreted what I want done with my hair and if he EVER RETIRES I would find it impossible for find anyone to take his place.!

Attended sands since 2009 ,Beni has been my hairdresser for almost 15 years and never have I felt so well looked after . A caring thoughtful person and more importantly a fantastic hair dresser. Always looks after me so well . She not only understands my hair but over the years has become to know me as a person and goes beyond her duty in providing what I can only say is a holistic approach . Thank you Beni you are truly fabulous xxx
