I always feel at ease at the salon…they chat to me when I’m not working and leave me be when I am. They just instinctively know how to adjust the mood to suit yours…and yet it’s a little bit kooky…but that’s the magic…it just works…and then the hair? Well that’s always fabulous. Without a doubt the best salon in Swansea ⭐️

Well, after a lot of research, I chose to come to Gemma for my first ever curly cut, and am so delighted that I did! She is a font of curly knowledge and exactly what this fifty-four year old woman - who has only had curly hair since I embraced my natural greys last year - needed. Her experience with hair is evident, her explanations thorough (and so much more understandable than any curly girl on social media), and she spent a lot of time with me, discussing my current haircare regime - as well as giving tips on what I can do to make my curls more manageable and luxuriant. She was brilliant!

And, as well as all that, the salon itself was the most friendly and least intimidating I've ever been to - and I've been to a lot! Loved that us customers sat around a giant wooden table, with mugs of coffee, and not a mirror in sight (a bonus when you've a body whose contours are similar to a cottage loaf!), as the genial stylists worked on making us look - and more importantly feel - fabulous. We chatted, laughed, and it was genuinely the most enjoyable, and relaxed, experience that I've ever had in a hairdressers.

This was a five star experience on all counts. And I'm really looking forward to my second appointment next week when Gemma will be doing part 2 of her curly process - the curl-by-curl cut. Simply epic! 👏👏👏

I always get great service and but I was blown away listening to how the team engaged with a customer who was really struggling with her appearance and self esteem. It's always possible to sit in front of a mirror but their default is the no mirror haircut. Perfect for those of us who struggle to look in the mirror when having a haircut (or any other time!).

I’ve been going to its science for the last twelve months every two months. I usually have the same thing done each time. But today I asked for a change and Millie didn’t disappoint. She gave great advice on what my options for colour and change of hairstyle would best suit my age/face shape etc. I am really delighted with the result and love the new colour and style. Thanks a million xxx

After a few years of unsuccessful salon trips, I decided to try It’s Science for their ‘curly cuts’ treatment. Gemma was amazing, very knowledgeable and explained everything with love and care without a hint of patronising. She made sure to understand my hair history, how I do my hair now, and to work with me to get a healthy curl back. The cut she has done for my hair has already made me so happy, and I cannot wait to go back for my follow up appointment.

The facilities were really nice and the other staff there really lovely to talk to. Communal feel, chatting to other clients, which I’ve never experienced before. Absolutely stunning experience!

I love this place! Went for a haircut today not realising they were specialists in curly hair - what a bonus! I had a warm welcome, Gemma was great listening to what I was thinking with my hair that hasn’t had a cut since before lockdown! Her advice was spot on and I walked away feeling great - had the curl treatment & a cut which has left my locks super soft and bouncy and I’m very much looking forward to my next appt. Gemma cuts curly hair in two stages - first is treatment & cut and second to go back and have another treatment and any adjustments need according to how your curls are behaving! Genius!

The salon is super funky & trendy but with down to earth folk who make you feel welcome and at ease! I left feeling a million dollars and all at a very reasonable price! Finally I have found a hairdresser who understands my hair and gets me!

Would highly recommend this salon especially for curly locks.

Third visit back to this lovely salon, the team are always so welcoming. Was very undecided on what to do with my hair colour to cover my grey roots. Gemma went through lots of options and I trusted her expertise and left it too her. I am so pleased with the final colour as she said I would be. I have curly hair so Emma then defined my curls when drying. I absolutely loved my cut and my curls looked amazing. Looking forward to my next visit.

Honestly any of my curly girls out there go and get a curly cut here. I was so nervous about having my hair done as I had not had my hair cut in 2years and everyone was so re assuring and made me feel like I was in safe hands. I get so at ease after and didn't even ask for a mirror to watch my cut as I knew it was going to be amazing. They took the time to individually coil my hair and the end result literally made me cry. I have never liked a hair cut before and I am absolutely obsessed with my hair now. Thankyou so much to Gemma and the girls, you actually have no idea how much you've helped me.
