Salon Review
Louise Weddell
First time visiting Cheynes and received a lovely warm welcome. Craig, who I would highly recommend, was a funny guy, and had given us some really good sound tips, without being too pushy. The end results, a fab haircut! Definitely wouldn't hesitate in going back there again. Thank you Craig.
