Susie Jones
Fantastic salon, all the staff here are lovely. I get my hair cut and coloured by Maya, who is an amazing hairdresser, she works actual miracles with hair colour!! I received a blow-dry from Ellie today who is currently training. She was very attentive and ensured the heat was just right, and that it was styled to my liking. Highly recommend A+++
Thank you so much, Susie! We really appreciate your kind words. It was great having you in the salon today and your colour looks fab!! See you again soon 🙂

Morna Margaret
Got my hair cut by Heather yesterday and was so pleased with my hair. She took time to chat to me and find out what I wanted to do wit my hair, what things I do with my hair and helped my understand how to help and style my hair to suit me. The attention to detail and advice given was fantastic. I would 110% recommend McGills Hairdresser to everyone. Top quality �����

Vivienne Kelly
I can't seem to give more than one review, so just adding to my last one! Today-Heather gave me the prettiest ashy light blonde highlights through my hair getting the colour a bit colder and lighter. It is my dream colour and I am in love with it, she was also a really good laugh. Taylor styled my hair in beachy waves and gave my hair a stunning finish which I love- Thank you McGills for the best hair I've ever had � A few weeks ago- Maya gave me a beautiful blended ash brown and blonde colour that was exactly what I wanted as well as being really thoughtful in terms of upkeep and patient listening to exactly what I wanted!! I was beyond happy and Ellie gave me another 5* blow dry and style and was also lovely to chat with. A month ago -Taylor gave me an opalex treatment and a blow dry, my hair is super glossy and has the perfect amount of volume and curl to it ! He also applied rebalancing shampoo to my roots and helped me understand how to apply it so as to avoid an overly oily scalp. Really lovely hairdresser and fantastic to work with listening to exactly how I like my hair and making that a reality, super impressed! �
Thank you so much, Vivienne! It is always such a pleasure to have you in the salon. We are glad to hear you are happy with your hair, your colour is absolutely stunning ? We look forward to seeing you again soon x

Elizabeth Bowman
First experience in this salon today, having hair cut and styled by the lovely Taylor. Very happy with my new cut, and with his friendly professional consultation -asking all the right questions made me confident he understood what I needed, and he kept me informed throughout the process. Looking forward to next visit - all the staff were helpful and highly proficient with good quality equipment. Salon spacious, music good and not jarring, with very nice decor, ambience, and super-handy for bus stops!
Thanks for the fantastic review, Elizabeth! We are are so glad to hear that you had such a positive experience. We can't wait to see you again soon 🙂

Timeea Toth
Had an amazing experience with Taylor at McGill Hairdressing. We had a great vibe and he was professional from the get go. Hairtest, color patch test, initial discussion about what I was looking to get were all done in a timely fashion. Getting my hair colored based on my natural color and what I had previously done with my hair shows that Taylor takes the time to know his clients and their needs. He was diligent and attentive to detail, also his head-massage was an unexpected super-relaxing treat after washing. The color and final result after blow-drying was just what I wanted and very pleased with it. I highly recommend Taylor for whatever "hair adventure" you want to go for. ?❤
Thank you so much for your lovely words, Timeea! We are so glad to hear that you are happy with your hair and the overall service you received from Taylor. We look forward to seeing you again soon 🙂

Can’t recommend this salon enough - Heather did my balayage/cut/treatment and I’m so happy with the results, as well as the fact that she put the health of my hair as her priority. The whole team of staff were friendly & so accommodating, very happy to have found them
Thank you so much for your kind words! We're really glad that you enjoyed your experience in the salon and are happy with your lovely new hair 🙂
