What our clients say about us

I have worked in film and television design for over 30 years, and as you can imagine have had my hair cut by many famous styists however Nancy at The Salon ranks as one of the best cutters ever and i hope she cuts my hair and keeps me looking fabulous for many years to come. I and my partner highly recommend The Salon at Wellswood. The staff and owners are so friendly and make the whole experience worthwhile. Well done to all at The Salon. Regards Allan.

This is such a friendly lovely salon, everyone made me feel at home. Nancy did my hair and she did such a great job. My hair needed a good trim, I had lots of split ends and hadn't been to the hairdressers for quite some time. Now, my hair looks full and healthy and like I just stepped out of a salon. Thank you for making my day.

Caitlin is just the best. I’ve visited a lot of hairdressers in the past and I am always very impressed with Caitlin’s styling of my hair. It lasts for days and always looks classy and is done with great care and attention. Would highly recommend The Salon. Everyone is so friendly, Caitlin, Sue and the lovely owners. Fantastic hair salon!

Caitlins expertise in cutting and colouring has given my fine, flat hair volume and texture. She knows what works for my face shape, skin tone and hair type; but always takes time to understand my wishes. She has given me a style which i can glam up, but that's easy to maintain day to day. I find my cut and colour lasts really well between visits. The salon enviroment is lovely, I can always feel relaxed and valed as a client.

Recently moving to Torquay, I did a lot of searching and revising hair salons as I am very fussy with my hair. I chose The Salon after recommendations and reviews I am so glad I did. 
From the minute you walk in all the staff make you feel special, Ian did my hair and I really am so happy with my cut and blow dry, he is very friendly and listens to how you would like your hair. 
I must say I have not laughed so much as I have today in a long time, thank you Ian. 
I would 100% recommend this Salon. 
I wouldn’t go anywhere else now.

Yesterday Ian transformed from looking an absolute mess and having been feeling low, to looking amazing! My new style is fantastic and I feel great. I know that Jon would agree!
I am looking forward to my next visit when BJ will sort out my colour. I recommend THE SALON in every way. Thank you so very much.

I have been increasingly unhappy with my hairs condition and recent cuts so decided to look for a new hairdresser . I heard good reports about the salon and reviews supported that so decided to book with Ian as he was an Experienced stylist . Well I was not disappointed . It was like manner from heaven . Ian talked at length with me about my hair in a very honest manner and introduced BJ for his input on my colour ..Between us we formulated a plan and set about it . I had an olaplex treatment which has made such a difference to its condition and the haircut is fabulous . They are both so knowledgeable and care about your hair .They have a love for their profession which shines through . I would recommend the salon in an instant , Thankyou both , I have already made my next appointment .
