Although I got my appointment time wrong, I was taken right away in a warm and inviting atmosphere and offered a hot drink. Time was taken to choose a hairstyle and the cut is excellent. Gary worked with my hair firmly but very gently, which was a delight to me having a sensitive scalp!:-) Only negative is the lack of disabled parking, or any parking at rush hour times!:-(

I have natural curly hair and have found it VERY difficult in the past to find someone to cut my hair to my liking .. Gary has been fabulous ..

Wow!! I cannot praise this place enough!! After having a very bad experience at a previous salon, I arrived here looking like Worzel Gummidge!!!! My hair was frazzled after trying to get my desired colour of grey and constant bleaching had severely taken its toll!!! Gary took the time before my appt to have a good look at the damage to my hair and the state of it and was very honest about the fact that my hair was knackered but agreed to try and correct my colour. The next day I had an appt with Amy who was just amazing! She worked wonders on the condition of my hair before getting my colour the way I have been only dreaming about for months! Most importantly she listened to what I really wanted and the result was unbelievable! Apart from leaving the salon feeling extremely delighted with my new colour and cut, the whole experience was the most relaxing few hours I've had in a long time. Such a professional yet friendly environment and the chat from Sydney defo brightened up my day!! I have finally found my forever salon and can't wait until my next appt which is already booked!! Gary, Amy and Sydney you are all my new best friends lol xx

I am really happy with my hair. It is exactly what I wanted. I liked the careful way that Gary cut my hair and he gave me advice on how to manage it.

This is a first class hairdressing salon. I received my best ever haircut here on Wednesday after deciding to go for the big chop, having my mid length hair cut into a bob. Gary was a skilled stylist who made me feel at ease from the onset. The complimentary head massage was heavenly and the perfect touch. All the other staff in the salon were friendly, positive and professional and I plan on becoming a regular client. Thanks to you all and keep doing a first class job!
