Having just moved to the area I was looking for a new place to get my haircut regularly and I'm pleased to say I think I've found it at the first attempt! Philip provided me with some great advice on my hair and was very attentive. I received one of the best haircuts I've had in ages and will definitely be coming back!

First time i’ve visited & Philip was extremely detailed & professional in the consultation. He allowed me to explain the exact style i want & took his time to achieve it. I will 100% be visiting every time I need a new style change. Finally found a great salon & a stylist i can trust.

This was my first visit and Anna was amazing. I have a skin condition on my scalp and she was knowledgeable on how to help with it. The end result was fabulous. Will definitely go back and will recommend the 5th element to friends and family.
Never had my hair taken care of the way it was today by Philip at 5th element, worth every penny. This place even does a membership for unlimited haircuts in a monthly period

I had an amazing experience yesterday! The hairstylist did an incredible job with my cut, giving it just the right amount of movement and style. I'm absolutely in love with the result! Not only did they deliver exactly what I wanted, but the atmosphere of the salon was also warm and welcoming. I can't recommend them enough! Can't wait for my next appointment.

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.
