About Us

Karen was 17 years old with no considerable exams (4 O'Grades ) but with a passion for hair, she started as a junior in the already established Review. I was trained by Joel Goncalves, who is one of the most respected hair-cutters around. 9 years later 1996 as a fully qualified stylist I bought the business from Joel. He moved to work in London. Then a few years later I bought the building and I started work on turning it into a complete 'High Street Retreat'.

You can eat and relax while having your hair done or just come on in and enjoy some lunch theres also the option to take it away. And of course on the bottom floor, where we are still famous for the hair salon.
