Could anyone recommend a hairdresser in central Cambridge or south Cambs/Royston area? Haven't cut my hair since DD was born (YEARS ago) and don't know where to start. Doesn't have to be trendy, just reliable, I guess.
I go to Elije (off Hills rd opposite the leisure park) but it is pricey (I think I nearly died when she told me it was £50 and SHE told me off for not going for a long time _- humm I am not selling it am I. I was a fab haircut)
Or Garry at Scruffs - I've been going to him for nearly 20 years - he is fantastic! He costs £65 for a cut and blow dry but it's wonderful and if I can't afford to go back for a while, it's soooo incredibly well cut that it really doesn't matter.
I would recommend Reeds in central Cambridge. Very friendly, and most of the girls have worked there for 8 years! I've been there 3 times now and always come out feeling good even tho I'm an over 40 , overweight mother of 3!! reedshair.com
I've gone to Ali at Third Generation in Melbourn. She's done a great job and knows her stuff. At £25 for cut and blow dry I was amazed and can go back as often as I want, rather than thinking about the cost of a £50 Cambridge cut.
My ds had the worst haircut I've ever seen in my entire life at Elije just off HIlls Road. Literally chunks of hair hacked off, fringe in a crescent moon shape, wings on each side of his head of differing length, chunks of his hair at the back a good inch shorter than the rest. Had to take him somewhere else for it to be repaired. The hairdresser was horrified.
I go the Toni and Guys in Cambridge and have my hair cut by Stacey who IMO is fantastic. About £50 though.
Lulu at Hairy Canary in the town centre can cut very stylish hair, but she can also cut very practical hair, IYSWIM - i.e. she has a good idea about what you're actually going to do every morning to style it and will discourage you from having something that you can't actually manage.
