Testimonials

 

I spend much of my life in the chaotic world of publishing so it is a real treat to visit a salon where I can unwind and be pampered.

If you want good service, friendly faces but most of all expert and professional hair care all at reasonable prices then look no further than Gary Peters Hairdressing.

I first went to Gary ’s when my difficult, frizzy hair had been over treated by my previous hairdresser. They didn’t offer a quick fix solution but advised the best way forward for my damaged hair and within months had solved the problems. In fact for someone like me with not your normal, straight hair it has proved a godsend.  Now I wouldn’t even consider going anywhere else and have introduced friends and family who are now also regulars.

At Gary Peters, they are about you and your hair and not about selling you their products although I regularly buy from them and am pleased to say their prices compare favourably with professional hair care products bought off the internet.

Go to Gary Peters, you won’t be disappointed.

Having been a client of “Gary Peter’s” hairdressers for over 5 years, I would like to say how lovely all the staff were to me when 2 years ago I suffered from major hair loss.They not only advised me on products to use, but more importantly to me treated me with sympathy and support, during a very traumatic time.Now, thankfully, my hair has recovered and the staff are as overjoyed as I am. My hairdresser appointments are a lovely experience and I would gladly recommend “GARY PETER’S” to anyone !

I have been a client at Gary Peters for over 9 years (and have never had a bad hair cut!)  – which I think in itself an excellent testimonial to the high standards achieved by Gary and the other members of the team.

All the staff are very friendly and helpful and provide an excellent professional service.  Most importantly, I feel I matter to them as much now as I did on my first visit all those years ago. I have always had my hair cut, coloured and styled to an exceptional standard and always felt I have been listened to when discussing a new style.  I feel my cut and colour have been carefully created to match my facial structure, hair type, colouring and life style.  I have also been given great tips on styling my hair at home.

Gary and the staff provided a very enjoyable experience, from a wonderful relaxing shampoo to the interesting conversations about life and hair! (and an excellent cup of coffee!)

I would highly recommend this fabulous salon if you want a professional, quality haircut using up to date techniques, fair prices and in a very friendly, relaxed atmosphere.

I have been a customer of Gary Peters for about 12 years during which time my hair needs have changed many times.

The advice I’ve receive from Gary and his staff over the years on what to try and how to manage my hair once I have left the salon has always been valued.  The team at GP always makes me feel like they care and always treat me like a valued customer regardless of whether I’m spending on the full works – full colour, cut and blown dry or just my ever increasing grey retouched and blast dried.

I have two teenage daughters who have been going to the saloon since their early years and as all kids have tried other salons which might profess to be funkier but have returned to GP as they value the standard of the stylists.

It might sound corny but we all feel like we’ve visited friends after we’ve been to GP.

It’s a treat to go not a chore, and I’ve never known anyone come away with a nightmare story. Not many salons can boast that!

Gary from Gary Peters has been cutting my hair for about 12 years now. I first discovered him when I had a disastrous hair cut at another salon and he put it right for me and I’ve been going ever since. I like my hair to be styled very short so great regular cuts are very important to keep the shape and style in a way that I have to do very little maintenance.

Having my hair cut used to be something I dreaded as I was apprehensive about what I would end up with! Since Gary has been cutting my hair I look forward to going as I don’t have to tell him what to do with it, he gets it right every time but always manages to make it slightly different. I have been so impressed over the years that I have recommended Gary and his salon to several family members and friends, who now all go there.

On a couple of occasions Gary has been on holiday but I have received the same standard of hair cut from other hairdressers in the salon as he has trained them all to the highest standard.

Last year disaster struck and my hair started to fall out! I was diagnosed with alopecia and Gary was an enormous support through this, with cutting my remaining hair to create the illusion of volume and covering up the areas where I had no hair at all. He was also an enormous emotional support and really helped me through an extremely difficult time. He was very knowledgeable and supported me every step of the way. Unfortunately I have now lost all my hair and need to wear a wig. I went to a specialist retailer to buy the wigs but then asked Gary to cut them for me and he has done such a fantastic job that nobody has ever noticed that I am wearing one. In fact, when I tell people I am wearing a wig they are really shocked as the wigs so closely resemble my hair how it was before.

I have certainly provided Gary with lots of challenges over the past year, cutting synthetic hair must be very different to real hair but his results have been excellent. In summary the fantastic service I have received at Gary Peters has given me the confidence to go out again and to feel ‘normal’. I would recommend the salon to anyone looking for a fantastic hair stylist with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

Professional Wig Cutting & Styling

We have several clients who come into the salon when they purchase a new wig to have it cut and styled to suit there face.  After talking with these clients it became apparent that there is a shortage of hairdressers who perform this service.

Losing your hair can be an extremely upsetting and emotional time, not only for yourself but for your family, friends and loved ones also!  We at Gary Peters can offer you private consultation followed by your wig being cut and styled at the salon while you wear it.  All the styling is carried out in a private area where clients can feel at ease.

We can cut and style all types of wigs; human hair, human hair mix and synthetic, giving them a more natural look.

Here is a testimonial from Claire, a valued client at the salon (see testimonial 1).  Claire visited the salon with her new wig, which was purchased by herself.  The wig fitted well and she loved the colour, but Claire wanted her wig to be styled like her hair used to be…  This was achieved and Claire loved the result so much that she wanted other people, in the same position, to see what can be achieved with the right styling and cut….
