I went here today for hair products for a family member. All the staff was really helpful and polite. As I don't know anything about hair products they explained everything they had in great detail. ​ Very knowledgeable people ​ Thanks

have been a client at Blake’s Hair and Beauty for many years. The salon is full of lovely, welcoming and friendly staff who will go out of their way to help and to make you feel comfortable. They tolerated my moaning when I was heavily pregnant and at their doorstep asking for a blow dry every other day, they issued a special certificate when my daughter’s hair was cut for the first time, and they never charge for a service if it’s your birthday! There are often cakes on the go as well! I once made a comment on how lovely they were and when I got home I found a recipe sent to me by text. I love my highlights done by the amazing Aaron and I will never go anywhere else!

If you’re looking for professionals who know what they’re doing and have amazing customer service, I cannot recommend Blake’s enough! Everyone there is friendly, and if you’re struggling to find free time to go/ would rather book online YOU CAN! Their online booking is a dream for when you have a really busy week and don’t have time to go back and forth looking for an appointment!! Canterbury has a fair few salons but I have to say Blake’s is the best so far!
