What our customers say

I absolutely love coming to Matthew James! I’ve been coming now for over a year. Jenna has helped me transform my hair from dull and dark, to a blonde balayage while still keeping my hair in the best condition using innoluxe each time! I couldn’t recommend the salon enough :blush: every member of staff is so welcoming and friendly I couldn’t fault anything about the place or the girls X

"Sarah Clarens"

Over the years I have always enjoyed any visit to Matthew James. Quality of service is exceptional, I have always been delighted with any service I have received there. All of the highly skilled team are wonderful, but special thank you to Hannah for my colour , Suj for my style and Emma for gorgeous nails. I'd like to also mention how fantastic Charlotte is at reception - always professional and very welcoming. Thank you Matthew James.
