Great colour, nice receptionist and lovely girl that washed my hair. My haircut unfortunately was the worst I have ever had, I will have to go elsewhere to have it repaired (if it can be repaired that is). The length is different throughout my hair it looks like it has been hacked. When I left the salon I couldn't tell as I had just had a blow dry however a few days later after I had washed it and attempted to style it myself I could see how terrible the cut was. I will not be returning. Steer clear!

First time customer, and first time using the website. Overall experience very good, would definitely recommend both, the place and the website. Quality of service very good as well.

Couldn't fault it, exactly what I was looking for! Service was great and Bee talked me through each step of my haircut so I was always in control. Definitely coming back!

Whilst in the hairdresser, I really liked how my hair was cut, perfect length and finish however it was only when I left I realised and noticed that some strands were longer than they should be the cut was uneven. It is a shame as the hairdresser Craig was lovely and I trusted his skills. Although a handy central location, I doubt I will return again for a cut.

Had just a wash cut and blowdry, the salon was very nice, the staff were polite and funny and you even get free wine! My haircut was quite simple but Raul suggested lots of products for my hair and suggestions on how to protect it from heat etc. Definitely worth what I paid.

I usually love coming here but the guy who recently cut my hair was just awful! He was so negative that I felt drained when I left. The haircut was quick, he didn't even use clips to separate my hair, just separated bits with the comb. The blow dry was good. I'm sure others will be fine and the girl who washed my hair was lovely, I've been going for two years but I won't be going again.

The staff were very friendly, and were able to accomodate me even though I was late for my appointment.
I went in for a conditioning treatment and a blowdry, and could not have been happier with the results! The blow dry was fantastic, it was exactly what I wanted. Would definitely recommend.
