Celebrating 26 years!

Wow, where did that go?!

Time goes by so quickly. After the crazy lock downs we have realised how important our hair is to our well being. Some people just want a hair cut others want therapy. Over the years we have created friendships with our guests. We always welcome you to the salon with our friendly team. The team are highly qualified in all aspects of hairdressing. We enjoy the constant education our salon partners offer.

We have always been on the ball with skin testing as safety is of paramount importance to us. Skin testing is a legal requirement, and with recent changes to the regulations surrounding this,the criteria is quite complex. This means everyone will need to be skin tested again ahead of any forthcoming appointments. This will need to be done every 6 months.

If you have had any changes in medication, had Covid-19 or Covid vaccination, used Henna or any form of tatoo. Skin test , must be performed 48 hours prior to a colouring service. Please allow plenty of time for colour appointments. We lengthened appointment times to reduce the volume of guests in the salon. We can concentrate on making your experience perfect. 

Finally I would like to thank everyone who has ever walked through our door. Keeping a busy and successful salon.
