Excellent4.9 Based on 531 reviews from review us onKerrie JoblingKerrie Jobling ★★★★★ Eda fixed my hair when the roots were so over grown and it had all different tones and colours going through it. She gave it a really good cut and her technique for highlights is 10/10. Cannot recommend enough, everyone is friendly and nothing is too much trouble.Shannon McFaddenShannon McFadden ★★★★★ Had my first hair appointment at this salon yesterday morning and will definitely be returning in the future! Eda did a wonderful job with my hair and I couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out. I also had an eyebrow wax done by Autumn and it's safe to say my brows have never looked better. Amazing service!Amy ProllAmy Proll ★★★★★ AMAZING! Walked out with my dream hair in one appointment! Amanda was incredible, can’t recommend enough!David ShulDavid Shul ★★★★★ My wife's review (Emma S):
I had my hair cut and highlighted a week last Thursday, and I cannot really convey how delighted I am with the result. Eda is unlike any other hairdresser I have ever been to. Because of her unique training she uses different techniques that are not "one size fits all", and tailors the highlights individually each time. In all my years of having my hair done, I have never seen such expertise and care to get it exactly right. She is just amazing. It does take a little longer than a normal appointment, but it is completely worth the wait, the highlights are beautiful, and because of the unique way she does them the regrowth doesn't show that quickly and I only need to re-book after 3 months. I have been coming to have my hair done by Eda now for nearly a year and I can honestly say that each time I leave I feel like a princess. She is just on a different level from all the other hairdressers I have been going to, and I never want to go anywhere else 🙂
