Perfect experience

Thank you very much for setting up my appointment with Joel, he was excellent and I’m tickled pink with my new haircut! We had some good banter and he was very professional, his attention to detail and care was first class.

Felt special

This was my first experience at your salon and I really enjoyed it. Loved my cut and felt very special too. I am very hair conscious and love my hair length and thickness. Both being this important, it was conveyed to my hair specialist and he has made sure that I had my length and thickness maintained
