I have been visiting The Head Gardener salon off and on for 11 years, I have been to other hairdressers in between but always find myself back where I started. I have been fortunate enough to build a rapport and friendship with my stylist but even if this had not been the case I would still come here as it is a well run, friendly and special salon. I say special as clients are not treated as customers but like old friends, the range of treatments and products are of a high quality and geared toward a variety of people. If you read this review and wonder whether The Head Gardener could be the hair salon for you, I would highly recommend it, you will not come away disappointed.

Kebelo Treatment - AMAZING!!!
Lynne Macmillan

A massive thank you to Ali and her fabulous team for my kebelo treatment today. It's an amazing treatment and I can't believe the difference it has made to my problem hair. It looks and feels fantastic, can't believe my problem hair could achieve such great results!! I'm converted to Kebelo and have booked my appointments until January 2015!! You seriously have to try it.

From the minute you walk in the salon you are made to feel so welcome. I had my hair coloured by Jade and I love it. She did a fantastic job. Will most definitely recommend her and will 100% be going back.
