The best salon in my area by far!

I have been a customer of Janet Best Hair Design for a couple of years now and I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. From my very first visit, I have always been made to feel welcome and a valued customer. Alice is my stylist and is exceptionally talented and professional as well as a really lovely person. She recently gave me a complete re-style after I lost patience with trying to grow my hair. I was very nervous but needn't have been because Alice knows exactly what to do and what would work with my hair and what wouldn't. I took lots of photos with me of styles I'd seen and we agreed on a style that we both liked and one I could easily manage to do at home myself. Unlike most salons when you show them a photo and you come out looking nothing like it, with Alice I really did look like the photo and was over the moon! Everyone has commented on how much better my hair looks since I had the re-style and how much thicker it looks too. I love the products they sell and use them daily. They also have a loyalty card which builds up points towards products too. I have tried just about every salon in Wakefield over the years but wouldn't go anywhere else now. If you want a truly professional, friendly atmosphere with a lovely latte and biscuit, I would highly recommend them.

I visited the salon for the first time today and was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the relaxed atmosphere. Alice was lovely and did an amazing job. She recommended what colour would suit me and it was perfect! Really enjoyed the experience and have received plenty of compliments already. My hair looks fabulous! Looking forward to my next appointment!

Great Salon
Shellie Petts

I have genuinely just had the most amazing experience here! I was lucky enough to win the Valentine's Day competition which included a free cut and blow dry, a free pair of shellac nails and and a free pair of GHD's, I also got an adorable little beauty kit with items like nail polish and a nail file, Sinead ( I apologise if that's spelt incorrectly) was absolutely wonderful and I felt at ease the minute I sat down! The cut she gave me has made my hair so healthy and shiny considering it was literally like hay beforehand, and I couldn't be more pleased with the style, she was attentive and has good banter too! I then got upstairs to another stunning room to have my nails done and the ladies were superb, running me through everything they were doing and I had a lovely chat! I went for a shade called field fox which I highly recommend as they look a dream! 
My overall experience was gorgeous and I came out of the salon with a huge smile on my face feeling very confident! I will be back in no time as I think I've found my new favourite place to go! 
Thank you so much to all the super kind staff for everything you did cant wait to come back xxxx
