My Reviews

Perrine Moran
I've been going to Shine for a couple of years, and am delighted to have found a salon I actually look forward to visiting. The atmosphere is relaxed, unpretentious and professional. The chairs you sit on for a shampoo give you a massage, which is a treat. Joheim colours and cuts my hair. He is talented, creative, interested and interesting. My 4 year old granddaughter (whose fringe he trims) informed me that he was "the best hairdresser in the whole world", and I agree with her. My experience with the beauticians I have met : Desi, Francesca and Faye, has also been excellent. I highly recommend this salon.
Thanks Perrine, I will pass on your kind words to Joheim and the team.

I've been coming to Shine every few months for the past year now, and thanks to stylist Joheim always leave with a great cut and in a good mood. Despite moving home to further away from the salon, I still come back every time I need a trim, and will continue doing so.
I have been coming to Shine now for nearly twenty years now and the atmosphere is and always has been so friendly and relaxed. I always leave feeling so much better than when I came in and this is particularly due to Joheim, who colours and cuts my hair so beautifully, and Desi who I see for facials, waxing etc. They are both excellent, take great care and give so much. Thank you!

I started going here initially for proximity but now I go because the staff and atmosphere are lovely. Johiem in particular is amazing (I don't really want to recommend him so publicly in case I can't get booked in with him anymore!), he has intuition and talent by the bucketload and is great at putting you at ease.
Thank you for the kind words, Johiem will be very happy to hear them.
