    Linley does a great mens number 2 sides and back, with a good trim on the top. Just long enough on the top to fall over, but not short enough to be spikey.

  2. Trish David says:

    I am happy to recommend Hair Scene, I have been a client of Cheryls for the past 18 years so think that speaks volumes, always professional and attentive , Cheryl is an excellent cutter and stylist. Hair Scene Salon is a welcoming , harmonious and pleasant environment. A special treat is the hair wash and relaxing head massage given by Monique.

    I recently visited Hair Scene and was thoroughly impressed with the excellent service. My stylist, Tasmyn, was professional, warm, and attentive.

    Tasmyn’s welcome was friendly, and she even enquired about my preferred drink, setting a relaxing atmosphere. Her consultation was detailed and professional, perfectly capturing my desired hairstyle with her expertise.

    The hair wash was a treat, with a soothing moisturising conditioner applied gently. The entire process, from walking in to the final blow and styling, was efficient, taking just around 45 minutes without any compromise on quality or detail.

    Owner Linley’s brief check and guidance on my hair further assured me of the high standards at Hair Scene.

    I wholeheartedly recommend Hair Scene to anyone seeking top-notch hair treatment and fantastic service. Keep up the fantastic work, Hair Scene team!
