Lydia is a very talented professional, I wouldn't let anyone else near my hair now. I trust her with my hair completely, my hair always looks and feels amazing once Lydia has worked her magic. I cannot recommend Lydia highly enough, a true star!

Lydia was a pleasure to chat to and her hair cut was on point. I would certainly return next time.

Lydia was really lovely - she sat and talked with me in detail about my hair type and what I was looking for before she started, and came up with good and different ideas to give me the look I was after. The end result is brilliant; I'm very happy with my hair and I will definitely be back.

I've been getting my haircut from Lydia since I was 18. I am now 26 and have only ever got my haircut from her. I think this should tell you how good she is! She always makes sure she knows exactly what you want, gives your her ideas of what might look nice and be practical, she is efficient and friendly.

I couldn't recommend Lydia more highly.

Lydia has been cutting my hair for the past four years. I have recommended her to many friends as she always does a great cut - she is very consistent - and is really pleasant to chat to and good value for money. She knows what she is doing, is very experienced and knows how to make my fine, floppy hair look its best (which is not easy). Her blowdries are fabulous - she always makes my hair look really pretty and full of volume and, in the past, I've had several colour treatments which have looked really good. She listens to what you want and considers what would work best for your hair type and face shape. We also always have v interesting chats. All in all, she is a great hairdresser. The best I have come across.

I first went to Lydia after a do-it-myself colour job had gone horribly wrong - and I mean horribly! As she has done every time since, (the latest being a few days ago), she put me at my ease, knew exactly what to do and the new colour (using a wonderful balayage technique that she is fantastic at) looks wonderful. Lydia doing my hair means being complimented on it afterwards by others, As well as being an exceptionally talented hairdresser and colourist, Lydia is a woman with a lovely presence. Going to have my hair done with her is both a treat and a pleasure. I swear she makes me look ten years younger! I can not recommend her highly enough.

I trust Lydia to cut my (bushy, wayward) hair beautifully, saving me from some kind of trimmed hedge or mop head look which I've had elsewhere. She gives great advice and doesn't try and twist my arm into things I don't really want. I enjoy her friendly and intelligent company too, plus she gave me some good holiday advice this time!

Some people find going to the hairdressers scarily hair-raising (excuse the pun), as they’re not sure what they’re going to walk away with (quite literally) and if it will be what they want. Lydia thoroughly enquires, clarifies and really listens to what you want doing, more so than any other hairdresser I’ve come across. So, no worries on that front. Lydia also happens to be a jolly good, highly educated and skilled hairdresser, who can do whatever it might happen to be. So, no worries on that front either. I’ve had a few hair-cuts with her and even asked her to do what she wanted most recently and was equally pleased. Always a delight to see and have a chat with too. Highly recommended.

First time I have used Lydia and it's one of the best haircuts I've had.
Will be recommending her to all my friends.

I've got quite thick wavy hair, which is quite difficult to cut and style. I've changed hairdressers several times because I was never satisfied with the standard haircuts they gave me. After a friend recommended Lydia, I can honestly say that I won't be changing again. She recommended a style for me, which I was slightly apprehensive about at first, but I absolutely love it now. She's highly professional and meticulous. She's also great to be around and highly personable and recommends good products. Definitely recommend her.

I have thick frizzy hair which I used to have to straighten after each wash to keep it manageable. I've also had a lot of bad experiences with hairdressers in the past who've not worked with my hair type and have left me with mushroom clouds and mullets! Lydia was extremely knowledgeable about the Do's and Don't's of my hair type and gave me a cut which lessened the weight without making it puff out. She then gave me a blow dry that left me with soft natural waves - something I never thought was possible without curlers and a heck of a lot of product. Best of all, she gave advice throughout my session on how I could recreate the soft, salon look at home. With a bit of practice I'm glad to say I'm improving and can now enjoy waves without the frizz. I highly recommend Lydia, not only for the immediate results but also for the low-maintenance styles you get to enjoy between sessions.

Lydia is a really great hairdresser! I decided to go for quite a bold change in my cut as well as highlights for the first time - she was really helpful in recommending shapes, colours etc. The end result is probably my favourite look ever! She takes her time and I could tell she takes pride in the looks! Plus I really enjoy hearing her stories and latest adventures :) highly recommended!!

Lydia had a lovely manner and was really thorough in her consultation. Her hairdressing skills are very good and she even managed to blow dry my hair into something that resembled sleek, a word that would rarely, if ever, used to describe my fluffy mane. I am very pleased to have found her and intend to be a regular customer from now on.

Lydia was amazing...totally deserves her high reviews. The ombre is exactly what I wanted and it feels so nice to have a hair "style" again!

Lydia is extremely passionate when dealing with your hair. It was my first hair cut with her and I have had many compliments since. She took her time, you didn't feel rushed and her manner was brilliant. I am quite indecisive about what to do with my hair a lot of the time but Lydia made me feel at ease and you can really trust her with your hair. I would definitely recommend her services and I know I will be using her again. Thanks Lydia!

Lydia has been cutting my hair for the past 5 years. My long curly/wavy hair is not easy to cut / maintain and I had a lot of bad experiences at salons before meeting Lydia. The best thing about her is that she does take the time to find out just what style I want and then executes it beautifully. She's not only experienced but also very talented and always makes sure that I look my best. Her haircuts are low maintenance and grow out amazingly well. Lydia is very friendly, polite and professional! Fantastic value hairdressing and a lovely chat too. See you soon Lydia!

It's the first time I've had a haircut at home and it was a great experience. Lydia was really lovely and very professional. She clearly knows hair and I had a great detailed consultation with her giving great advice. The end result was fantastic! I will definitely be inviting her into my home again and highly recommend her to everyone!
