What a complete asset Grace is! I feel I could call her my friend. She is utterly professional, attentive and personable, but above all, Talented. Grace is intuitive in her work and makes me feel totally confident that I am in safe hands. Every time Grace does my hair I comment that it has never looked so lovely, then I return and she surprises herself. Thank you so much Grace, Blakes is very lucky.

I had my first appointment at Blakes after my previous hairdresser of 40 years retired. I was nervous. I was thrilled by the results. The lovely Kirstie performed a miracle, great colour, good cut and lovely healthy looking shiny hair. I was made to feel very welcome. Lovely people working there. Didn't hesitate to book my next appointment!

This is a very friendly salon in a very convenient part of the city. My hairdresser has done my hair for more than ten years which is a recommendation in itself.
