The Best
Zak Murphy

One of the best hair experiences I have ever had. From shampoo to cut. Sean has such worldly experience in Gents hair and cannot fault the service. Thumbs up for sure and will be recommending this salon to every one I can

Sean Beacham

I've been getting my hair cut by Sean for over 11 years. It's an absolute pleasure to go into the salon knowing that I'm going to get my hair cut exactly the way I wanted it. Sj Forbes are true professionals and take pride and passion in what they do. I won't get my hair cut anywhere else. If you're looking for a hair dresser go see these guys! You'll be mad not too!!

I was very impressed by the salon and staff at Hair by S.J. Forbes, from the minute you walk in the staff are all very attentive, friendley and welcoming. When I went in my hair was in a very bad way, but Hayley (Creative consultant) sat down with me and talked through some options with me, she took the time to listen to what i wanted i was absolutley blown away by the end result!!! She had not only matched my hair colour perfectley through only colouring half head she did atreatmentment on it and gave me back a hair style rather than just the mess it was before, and its now so soft and smooth. I walked out with so much more confidence than when i walked in. 
One thing i must mention is how comfortable the chairs were, i know its a bit strange but girls you will know what i mean we sometimes spend 2-3 hours in a salon getting our hair done so we want to feel comfortable to sit in the same position for that legnth of time, and that is exactley how you feel they are so comfortable!!!
Anyway I would definatley recomend that you go and visit them, and see for yourself!!!!!!!

I am absolutely thrilled with my hair! Steph takes the time to listen and chat about what I'd like and provides a natural colour and cut I am over the moon with every time! She offers genuine advice to keep my hair healthy and her friendly attitude makes me feel very welcome and relaxed. My family and I trust her explicitly and couldn't go anywhere else! Thank you!!
