Brilliant. Jodie was very warm and welcoming, and very professional. A lovely relaxing experience and skin feels fab now.

Always love having my nails done...plus a catch up and a giggle.

Excellent as always!

Fantastic cut! Lovely atmosphere, good coffee and lovely chat. Just what a lady needs!

Not rushed, very relaxing and worth every penny!

Fantastic as always, a warm welcome, great cut, and conversation, a very relaxing experience
