First time at this hairdresser. Experience was excellent. Hairdresser Ann was very polite, friendly and helpful. I now have a smart, tidy, manageable haircut. It suits me and is lovely. Perfect for a new job.

I received an excellent service from start to finish with the 5th Element, and I felt really valued as a customer. Phillip was very professional and talked me through every part of the process of my keratin treatment. Would definitely recommend this salon.

The advice, care and techniques that Phillip is naturally brilliant at has brought a trust and relationship with him which is very rare. What more can I say you have to experience it for yourself and the chilled environment the service comes with. 🙏

2023 Trendy Haircuts

In 2023, the hair industry is seeing a range of trendy haircuts that are both stylish and versatile. Here are some of the popular haircuts that are making waves:

Graduated bob is still one of the most stylish hair cuts in 2023

Textured Pixie Cut: The pixie cut remains a trendy and low-maintenance option for those who prefer shorter hair. In 2023, the focus is on adding texture and movement to the pixie cut. This can be achieved through choppy layers, razored edges, or tousled styling, giving the cut a modern and edgy feel.

For anyone not feeling the retro vibes, low-maintenance cuts like blunt ends with minimal layers are great options that will hold up for months.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of fade haircuts, quiffs, long hairstyles, undercuts, the pompadour, buzz cuts or Mohawk hairstyles – we have something for everyone. We even have styles for those of you with thick, full locks and naturally fine or thin hair, as well as expert styling tips and tricks and product recommendations.
