Have not lived here very long and have yet to get my hair cut (chickened out last time and had it done at my old hairdresser when I was visiting friends!)

I'd like somewhere not too expensive or 'trendy' iykwim, I get shy when I go in and all the stylists are 18yo size 6 beauties!

Any ideas? TIA! x

I go to Tracy's at Syston.
I hadn't been for 5 years before I went there and everyone is lovely.
Don't know if it's near you but it's really friendly - they cater for everyone - you could have an eighty-year old having a blue rinse on one side and an eighteen-year old having a pink dye on the other grin

I get a wash, cut and blow-dry for about 23 quid. (sorry - new puta can't find the pound sign blush)

I'm in Stoneygate, near the city centre, but am willing to travel as have 'issues' with my hair!

I hate going to the hairdressers just found a fab one who does home hairdressing and charges £10 for a cut she covers thorpe astley but travels and then charges for her travel.

Wow that sounds really good!

Mobile hairdresser sounds like a good idea as am 35 weeks pregnant too, but look like I'm about to pop! Can't help thinking i'd get the worst cut ever in a salon from someone terrified I was about to go into labour!

Can I have a telephone number/ link?

Despite having recommended Tracy's i've been thinking of a mobile one ... so would be interested to know if yours would come this way, linseyfox.

hello yes her name is marie and her mobile number is 07807438103.

She covers thorpe astley mostly but does travel she may charge about £5 for travelling to stoneygate but is def worth it.

I would give her a ring tigers and see if she comes as far out as syston.

I used to have a home hairdresser from syston direction but she went back to working in a salon which was a shame.

also syston is only 15mins up the m1 and a46 so she may well come out that far,

I recently went to Tanya Harris in blaby for the first time and was really well looked after, its a family place and there were really nice.

I go to Tete A Tete in Braunstone Gate - Lulu is my hairdresser, she is brilliant (and lovely and normal) I've had all sorts of cuts from her and she always actually gives me what I want.

I got a surprisingly good haircut at Leicester College (near Morrisons) for 2 quid from one of their trainee hairdressers

Another vote for Tete a Tete. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Are we the tete a tete fanclub? I got a groupon voucher for Christmas and they were brilliant.

I made dh go to tete a tete to have his hair cut for the wedding grin

I love it when the boys come in all sheepish and have their haircut holding a beer so they don't seem to girly!

Christopher Wright in Stoneygate (Allendale Road) is fantastic so no need to go very far! I travel from a village in south Leicestershire it's that good.
