V for Hair & Beauty Testimonials

Always professional, efficient and friendly service. An enjoyable way to spend an hour or two!


I find from the moment I walk in, the professional attitude of the receptionist and staff welcoming. Vicki my hair stylist is friendly and ready to listen to my requests. Very satisfied with the service.


Best of all I feel really great when I walk out the door! I have been pampered-the full service-nice surroundings, a drink (usually strawberry tea) the treat of fudge, nice magazines. Ava, cuts my hair really well and still asks me after all this time “How do you want your hair cut? “Her blow waves are truly amazing and last for ages! I look 20 years younger when I leave and feel wonderful-why wouldn’t I return!!
