I’ve been coming to Lara’s for close to 10 years now and I can’t thank the staff enough there for always being so attentive and also honest about their advice and guidance regarding my hair. Chloe is just an absolute hero. She is honest, reliable and works wonders with my hair. She is the main reason I walk out of that salon feeling like a 10/10. What an asset to the team she is. Won’t go anywhere else x

9y old DS had been resisting a haircut for ages because of a bad past experience at a barber. Everyone from meet & greet at the desk, to Holly at the backwash, and Dan cutting hair, struck the perfect note of helping the little one feel relaxed and confident. Nothing was too much trouble. He had been so nervous going in but thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Great cut and we’ve already booked the next appointment! Big thanks to whole team for going the extra mile x
