Client Love

I booked with Guy after two bad experiences at other hair salons. I am so glad that I did! He transformed a bad style into a great new cut that suits my face shape. Guy is in a league of his own. He is pretty booked up so I have have locked him for my next cut and even recommended him to my friends. 
Kelly and her staff are the best in the business. I have been seeing Kelly for over five years and she is the only person I trust to cut, style or colour my hair. She does such an amazing job with my colour, fixing my blonde colour then working her magic to make sure the colour was perfect. The product she used didn't leave my hair dried out like it usually is after a blond colouring. She is a creative genius!
