Alison Baker
First trip to SJ Forbes after various friends have recommended. Definitely not disappointed. Had a pretty big chop (compared to my usual little trims) and really pleased with the results. Pics attached. All the staff were friendly and chatty. Hayley is amazing and I felt 100% confident with her before she started. She listened to what I wanted, looked at the photos I've shown and recommended what would and wouldn't work for my hair. A really nice, fresh feeling salon! Thank you team! x

Salon Review
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.

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.
Salon Review
I have been going to SJ Forbes since they first opened. It is an excellent hair salon, and whist being such it is also always an extremely friendly and welcoming experience. Their advice is always of the highest caliber. Hayley, Sean and all their staff ensure that your visit to their salon is enjoyable, and you leave with an excellent hairstyle.
