Why Buoy is Wonderful

A) Putting your customer first 


May 2017

I absolutely love my experiences at Buoy

Found a perfect salon for me and recommend it to everyone now, particularly the amazing Sarah.


Nov 2017

I'm so happy with my result from Sarah

I am so grateful to you for having such wonderful staff, all of the other hairdressers working today smiled at me, your reception person was so lovely too. It really makes all the difference when you have a wonderful team like you do. I won't make the mistake of going elsewhere in future and feel so happy to have found the salon.
