Hair Works

What makes a good salon?
At Strands Hair and Skin Treatment Centre
we think it’s a question of striking the right balance.
Creating a salon environment that’s professional
but also friendly; a salon where we listen
but also provide expert

A place where you know you’ll be
pampered but, more important,
a salon that’s at the cutting-edge of style.
