I’ve been going to this salon and Nicky has been styling my hair for about two years. I’ve got curly hair and Nicky does an amazing job at the style cut everytime, she also does highlights, balayage and a range of amazing treatments every time I go. Her recommendations for my at home treatments have been amazing and I’ve been using the products for two years now. My initial before photo was very dry with dull curls (the one I’ve put below is a recent one so it’s still pretty good for fine curly hair), and one the right is after my style with Nicky. The curly girl products as well as treatments and Nicky’s techniques have given me my natural curls back. I’d 100% recommend this salon and Nicky- the team are competent, creative and super friendly to visit.

I’ve been going to Nicky for my cuts for nearly two years and she does an amazing job every time. I have super curly hair and she truly knows curly hair so well!  She’s so amazing at what she does. Couldn’t recommend her more, especially for curly haired girls!

I found Hair La Natural years ago through a simple Google search. I needed rescuing from a disastrous hair colouring from a well known salon on the Coast. Nicky’s name came up in the search with high reviews as a hair colour professional. I have never looked back, I been with Nicky for almost a decade, she takes great care in her clients, knows their hair and knows what is suitable. is a true professional and highly recommended!

The best hair cut and service I have had in many years. The staff were very friendly and I was provided specialist care from a hair colourist and curly hair cutter. I was educated about how to style my hair to bring it back to life. The staff have passion for the industry. I will definitely return.

I went to see Nicky for a curly cut. I hadn’t had my hair cut in a year so it wasn’t in a good shape. She instantly could see exactly what she needed to do to get some shape and texture back into my hair. She was so lovely, friendly and very talente Nicky told me what I needed to do to care for my hair and what products to use.  the curly girl approved Products – clever curl, so she won’t use sulphate shampoos. My hair feel and looks amazing, thank you Nicky ?

Highly recommended for any curly girls out there! is very well versed in proper care for curls. Loved the cut she gave me and the Clever Curl products used. So called curl specialists in the area will charge you twice as much and take twice as long for poorer results. They had very affordable sample satchets to try the products out at home and I’ll definitely be going back to purchase the full bottles which were very reasonably priced for CGM approved products!
