Love the team, love the service, just simply LOVE LOVE LOVE

I just thought I'd send a quick note to say that I still absolutely LOVE everything about Buoy. Mathias is awesome with colour and of course, Michael is just amazeballs with cutting my hair. I couldn't imagine ever trusting any other salon with my hair.
