Testimonials from my clients

Deva cut with Claire Lendon the Curl Consultant (extraordinaire IMHO). So happy with it! Boucleme products too!

Michelle C

I started seeing Claire about 12 years ago when i moved to the area after a number of disastrous haircuts. I wouldn’t let anyone else near my hair. Not only does she cut well and has a eye for curls she is an excellent colourist . As a woman nearing 60 you can still make the most of your hair thanks to Claire.

Hilary Sanders

Coming to Claire is a real treat for me. Claire is the first hairdresser who can tame my curls, my hair for the first time is in control and I actually enjoy having my haircut now.

She is brilliant with my curly hair, I’ve always had great cuts

N. Walker

Amazing 2nd cut and colour, left my hair looking even better. So great to finally find a hairdresser who truly understands curls and how to make them look good all the time not just when she does them!


I had a great deva cut from a very friendly (I can find hairdressers a bit intimidating) and curly haired Claire who completely knew and understood the Curly Girl method. For those who asked, yes, I’ll be going back and yes, I’d recommend her…
