Lovely Salon and Lovely staff
Emily Hall

I have been going to this salon since it first opened. The staff are always very friendly, happy and chatty. I am always very pleased with my hair and/or nails and would recommend to anyone.

I wouldn't trust anyone else with my hair.
Anne Bell

Leah has been cutting my hair for 15 years, I'm delighted she has finally opened her own salon, she has managed to create a welcoming, relaxed and friendly atmosphere to match the stylish decor. Add to this her top class professional service that would rival any of the high end salons and you will not want anyone else to cut your hair again. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Highly recommended!!
Claire Hodgson

I have been having my hair cut, coloured and styled by Leah for over 8 years and, even now I have moved to London, I still travel back to Seaham to get my hair done by her. She knows what style and colour will suit her clients and is always happy to offer suggestions. I would recommend Leah to anyone and have introduced her to both family and friends. She did an amazing job as wedding stylist at my best friend's wedding and I will also be using her for my own wedding next year. The rest of the staff are also friendly and chatty and create a welcoming atmosphere in the salon.

Highly Recommended

Leah's salon has become an instant success and this is due to Leah's flair and passion for creativity in her hair designs and in the evolution of a chic but comfortable place to have your hair/nails done. All of the staff are friendly and accommodating. Leah demonstrates in conversation that she herself is talented but still pushes herself to learn more, thereby bringing the best services to her salon. In addition Leah provided hair care services for my friend's bridesmaids and did an excellent job, remarked upon by other guests. She has pulled together an excellent team who offer the best hair/nail services of any place I have visited. I would recommend Hairdressing@No4 by Leah to anyone.

A gem of a salon
Lavene Morris

Very chic salon , inspired staff , has a lovely feel when you walk in, and a fabulous feel when you hair is done, love the massage when hairs being washed, I feel like I'm in Bali in a far away spa, the gorgeous tea cup and saucer on a tray is divine as is the always changing biscuit that arrives with it, an absolute gem of a salon in a stunning location not to be missed! I love it ! Leah listens to what you want and will advise you on the very best solution,nothing is too much trouble,she has been my shining star for over 5 yrs now.
