Great Service!

I contacted Avril to see if she could help me with my Mixed-Race daughter's hair, her hair is kinky coily, and thick!... and to top it off she has special needs so doesn't like to sit for long periods of time. Avril was really helpful and said she would take a look and see how we go; my daughter is 13 and not used to salons. I have to say I was apprehensive. but. after a wobbly start, my daughter had her hair washed! conditioned! combed! blow dried. (never heard of) and then sat pretty well for over an hour and had box plaits put in. seriously I was amazed... her hair looks great, and she is super proud of herself... she is showing everyone her new hair LOL...
thanks to Avril and your staff (and the other clients!) for being ever so patient with her and making me feel at ease as well. I can only highly recommend Avril and Nubian. 5 stars plus for me! thanks again Nicola

Professional and Friendly

First time visiting the salon today and both Sharon and Avril were welcoming and professional. Sharon is a super stylist who made me feel at ease and comfortable which I really appreciated as I haven’t been to a salon for many years. Service was also quick as I was seen straight away. So nice to have found them.

Very Disappointed

I’ve had a substandard experience. Left felt under valued , cheated, defrauded ripped off and mistreated. I felt as though they were acquisitive and grasping instead of valuing the client and providing a good service and delivering what’s requested. I think a better approach would have been to offer to make it right or be transparent and let you know it’s not achievable. Instead they charge me for their shortfall of something that wasn’t delivered. Very annoyed!!

I've been a regular customer of Nubia Hair for the past few years. There is always a friendly and professional welcome whenever I visit the salon, with a wonderful atmosphere.

I attended the salon last Saturday for my relax and informed Avil that I had limited time. She carried out a relaxer on myself and another client within 1.50 hours. No stress involved and I came out with the same salon look as I always do.

Big thanks to Avril for listening to her customers and also providing an excellent service, at great rates and of course within a good time, as we all know our time is precious!

I want to make up my hair for my friends wedding, however, i have few questions about your work, do i need to buy the hair myself and take it to your salon or your salon have the hair products? If i need to buy hair myself, where can i buy the high qulity hair? How about the hairplusbase.com? Or can you recommand some good shop to me? I will be appreciated if you could help me.
