TESTIMONIALS

I love going for a haircut! Its not merely a simple hair cut and blow-dry, its an experience. Friendly staff who remember your name, free drinks, good conversation and an excellent hair cut. It starts at the reception with a friendly face and greeting and moves on from there.
Highly recommended!

SABRINA
Having decided to have a complete change of hair style. I was more than a bit nervous. My stylist interpreted my chosen style wonderfully and tailored it to suit me. My technician discussed with me a colour that I would suit. I am really pleased with both the cut and colour. I have never had so many compliments.
