Have been at this salon nearly 2 years now. Julie is my expert - and she really is. Everyone is super friendly. Julie takes so much time to understand you and what you are looking for with your hair and helps you get there. I have asked her to do my wedding hair - I trust her that much! Going to the salon now is relaxing, catching up in news and coming out with fab hair!

I had my hair cut by Rachael, l have been coming to her for years and she's wonderful. She listens and interprets my ramblings into what I want and what will suit me best. I always leave feeling better than when l went in. The new interior is beautiful and feels luxurious and warm and welcoming. Everyone is so friendly and it's such an inclusive environment. I can't recommend this salon highly enough.

Have been going there for years. Is is a friendly relaxing experience. They do not take you for granted. They stay on top of trends and techniques, but I am comfortable with what I like. They give you genuine advice. Have not been tempted to have my hair cut elsewhere.

Fantastic wedding hair service! I contacted Wilkinson Smith salon 6 weeks before my wedding due to previous unforeseen circumstances. Julie made the whole experience stress free fitting me in for a number of hair trials and hair cut in a short period of time. Both Julie and Jodie travelled to my wedding venue on the morning of the wedding, they helped make the morning a fun and friendly atmosphere. Myself, 3 bridesmaids and mother of the bride were all so happy with our hair, they listened and mirrored exactly what we all wanted. Would highly recommend.

I attended the saloon today for my regular cut, and as always Martin was excellent, Martin took his time, to cut and style my hair, and makes it a very enjoyable experience. I love the new layout of the saloon, and the reclining chairs, are so comfortable when you are getting your hair washed. I look forward to my visit, every time,! A real treat !

I came to the salon with a horrible bleach job gone wrong, they immediately booked me in for a colour test and a few days later my hair was fixed. After 2 trips to the salon my hair is back to a place that I absolutely love! No complaints at all!

I’ve been trying to grow my hair. Julie has been helping me navigate what has been a surprisingly hard process - both mentally and hair-wise. But I reached the end of my tether this morning after washing and drying it no less than 3 times (yes, three - madness) and hating it. I called - tearful - and Julie answered and made me feel better in seconds flat. I got an appt for this pm - with the intention of going back to a tried and tested style that wasn’t sexy or glam - but worked. We met and we talked. Julie suggested tweaking rather than radical chop it off again. We went down this route. Julie dried and asked how I felt. There was some more adjustment and a revised plan of action. I feel very good about my hair now and will see how I do when I wash/ dry it myself. In years and years of hair appts, and many different salons… Julie and her team are different. What you say is heard. It is a real service and you build real relationships. Hair matters and Julie really cares. Many many thanks.
