Will be back

I was a visitor to Wellington, and was able to get an appointment,as soon as I walk in, I felt so welcomed and Joel made me feel so great and the lovely girl who did my blow wave, was very good. So the colour and blow wave I was very happy with it. Next time I am in Wellington I will be back.

Delightful experience

Another lovely Buoy experience. Joel was a delight - attentive, gave his opinions on style options clearly and constructively, and I was pleased with both the cut and blow wave. He no doubt will prove to be a great asset for the salon.
