A) Putting your customer first

Bev is professionalism, skill and class personified.

Another thoroughly enjoyable appointment with Bev Dodd and another stunning cut. She is professionalism, skill and class personified.


Apr 2018

I was privileged to have Bev cut my hair and I got the sort of cut I had been hoping for.

This was my first visit to Buoy although I have known about you for years.  I was really impressed. The salon is amazing and I am looking forward to returning soon.  All of the team without exception were fully engaged and very considerate (and very stylish -  a great inspiration).  Ronica is a shampoo star and the best masseuse ever!!
