Had a bad experience here. Firstly, was kept waiting 40 minutes with no apology. The blow dry was then very rushed, she didn't do what I asked for, and within an hour of leaving it had gone completely flat. All in all, a complete waste of money and awful customer service. Don't bother.


Do not go here! Went for a blow dry on new years eve and the service was terrible. They washed my hair with ice cold water (apparently the hot water was broken), then rushed through my blow dry in about ten minutes. Two girls did my hair at once and they pulled it so hard my scalp was still hurting 3 days later. When I complained they refused to give me a proper apology or any discount etc. I'd never go back.
