    This is by far the best hair salon I have ever been to. The staff are always welcoming and friendly they have a warm fun and relaxed atmosphere... they take time to make u feel relaxed and at ease. They discuss all your needs and will be honest with their opinions about what styles will suit you, which to me is a must as too many hairdressers are scissor happy and do not care if the hairstyle will suit your face shape etc.. so to me it means a lot to know the staff are putting you first and are trained well enough to be confident in giving their much valued opinions. They also work long hours (all standing on their feet all day) and do late nights and even Sundays. .. I never go anywhere else. They so deserve this award and recognition for all their hard work.
