Classically trained, our highly experienced stylists and barbers stay on-trend in all areas with our on-going in house, and external, training sessions – so you can go as sassy or classy, wild or trad, as you like!
Working with the exclusive Italian hair product company milk_shake, we can provide a rainbow of beautiful, long lasting colours – anything from cool blondes, to sharp pinks!
We don’t believe one style fits all so we take the time to LISTEN to you, and then work with you to deliver the right look for you. Attention to detail is key to our team – we know the importance of the right grade of fade, that your highlights go right to the root, that when you say take an inch off, you mean an inch. But don’t take our word for it, check out what our clients say on our Facebook page, or have a look at our gallery.
