What People Say About Us

  • review rating 5  Excellent haircut, hair looks amazing. Anna is professional and creative. Finally a salon in Reading that I will be recommending,. I live in Earley and its well worth the drive through town or it's on the 17 bus route. Their online booking system easy and straight forward to use. Cannot fault the whole experience 5/5.

    review rating 5  Had my hair cut today by Lydia and she’s done a great job. Very happy with the cut and finish. Also had a treatment put on my hair which has left it silky soft and shiny. Will definitely be coming back. Happy new year to all the staff.

    review rating 5  I had De-frizz smoothing service this week just before my Holidays, I am so impressed! Stylist explained every step what to expect and how to maintain the condition of my hair after. My hair feels smooth, lush, shine and no frizzy hair! The price is comfortable and a bit cheaper then in town Salons. I will be back!
