Melisa Hanratty
I have been using SJ Forbes for around 2 years and can highly recommend the team and their services. They are friendly, knowledgable, keen to please and easy to deal with. I have even been taking my 9 year old daughter and the team are brilliant with her, making her feel special each time. Hayley is a superb stylist who's industry knowledge is bang on trend. She provides a great consultation each time to make sure that I am getting a style which is right for me. I am super happy with the whole service which I find to be consistently of a high standard.

Sean has cut and styled my hair with professionalism and expertise every 3 weeks for several years now, so it's high time that I left a review reflecting my immense pleasure and appreciation. Friendly and helpful staff and always a pleasant chat about life and the world. Long may it continue. Terry

Luke was amazing! He listened to me, suggested the hairstyle and I love it! He gave my hair modern, playful and sexy look. It's been very long time since I really loved my hair and went home so happy. I will definitely return and can't wait for the next time when he will do some more magic with my head. It is amazing to finally have the hairdresser/hairsaloon that I can really recommend.

I have been having my hair cut by Sean at SJ Forbes for almost a year and at long last feel I’m with a hairdresser I’m really happy with. I have my hair cut every 8 weeks during this time it stays in perfect shape and is easy to style. The whole team at SJ Forbes are very professional and make you feel happy and relaxed in the salon, making for a wonderful experience.

This salon and the talented people who work there are simply fantastic. The attention to detail and willingness to think outside of the ordinary mean I always feel special and individual, whether I am just having a cut, or I am changing the colour of my hair yet again! Please make the jump and try this place, I don't think you will be dissapointed.
