"I would highly recommend NB had my hair done by the lovely Jenna ... she done a fab job with great guidance and I will def be back to have my hair done again and again great hospitality and very friendly staff ... thank u so much 😊"
"So... I came first to browns salon with long hair not knowing what to do with my hair... long story short... I absolutely love my haircut now!!! It gave me confidence and boost my self esteem!! So thank you so so much!!! Love my new hair style!!!"
"I had my hair cut and coloured a few weeks ago at Nelson Brown. Of course I looked amazing leaving the salon, but what's nice is how many people commented after I've washed and styled it (as someone who doesn't spend much time fussing over her hair). That even when it's windswept or I'm back from the gym - people notice the cut and compliment me. I think that's the sign of real skill and is why you pay a bit more to go to Nelson Brown than other salons in the area. It's not cheap, but as a friend of mine says - " you wear your hair every day" - so it's worth getting it cut well! Also excellent service in the salon and I felt I got helpful feedback when I asked for a style and colour that would suit me. I've been to this salon maybe four times now and think they're a fabulous local business."
"Thank you for my new look Nelson, having a stylist that can advise and execute a brand new style that is different and absolutely fabulous, deserves more than a 5 star review. Would highly recommend a million %. And because of good advice, I now have more confidence to wear my short hair in many different styles"
"lovely relaxed professional atmosphere. staff are friendly and attentive. Really love what I have had done to my hair. Thank you."
"I have been waiting to write a review as I wanted my hair to grow out first.. AND NELSON IS GOD!! He did exactly what he said he would, my hair looked and still looks good, it’s the FIRST time I have had a cut that doesn’t turn into a triangle shape once it’s grown out (I have very curly hair) and i'm 30 it’s taken me 30 years to find a hairdresser who doesn’t butcher my hair or cut it so it’s grows out into a triangle. I was a little intimidated when I first walked in as I thought everyone would be stuck up, but I couldn’t of been more wrong, everyone was friendly made me feel really welcome, had such a laugh with nelson and the other girls. He listens to what you want- again a first!! And he delivers! Which let’s face it can be rare when you go to a hairdresser. I have lived in London, had my hair done in different parts of the world and I can genuinely say that no one has done my hair better!! I love the fact as well that unlike most hairdresser he isn’t trying to get you in there six to eight weeks later. There’s no push to buy things or to keep coming back more often than you need too. I left feeling a million dollars, and cannot wait to go back! If you have curly hair, I’m sure you will struggle to find someone to do your hair well, put your faith in nelson! I’ll never go to anyone else! Thank god I found you, as i was beginning to think the triangle thing was just how my hair had to be! Worth every single penny!"

The attention to detail, listening to what you want from both your cut & colour & delivering it. Can’t recommend enough n can’t wait for next visit. Thanks Lisa & Laura.

"Yesterday I had my first appointment with Oliver at NB, a talented and lovely young lad who created an amazing new style for me with some input and guidance from Nelson. The planning and consultation, and also advice I was given was first class. The backwash area was so relaxing with dimmed lighting, hot towels, music, and a head massage. Needless to say my next appointment is booked. Thank you for an amazing afternoon."

"Had my hair done twice now done by Oliver really happy with my hair would go back as really happy with my hair and really nice staff would recommend"
I wanted to let you know that when I walked in today, I was greeted by a lady (whose name I believe was Katherine), she gave me a huge smile, made me feel instantly welcome and was genuinely lovely. She checked who I was seeing, took my coat and offered me a drink – this may seem like small things and I am sure lots of people would see this as her ‘just dong her job’ but to me, they are massive and she was amazing.
I had my hair cut and coloured by Laura and Oliver respectively. Laura was fab. She talked me through what she was going to do. I had my hair lightened and then coloured and she explained it all to me as I had never had this done before. She looked at several pictures with me and helped me decide the colours I wanted. She explained to me that the colour I wanted may not be as dark as I wanted the first time of colouring due to the lightening process but that when I returned to have it touched up, it would have a building up effect and would likely darken. This was great for me as I knew exactly what to expect.
When I initially saw Oliver, I was a little nervous due to how young he seemed. Not in anyway because I doubted his skills or professionalism but purely because small talk is horrifically difficult for me – how much was I going to have in common with a man in his early 20’s? I really really want to reiterate that my nerves surrounding Oliver cutting my hair were mine and in no way relating to anything other than my own struggles. I have to tell you that Oliver is an absolute credit to you. I don’t know that there is any way to say he is a very mature young man without it sounding condescending. I, in no way mean it that way. He chatted away to me and I felt very happy doing so. He was friendly, kind and patient.
Once Oliver had finished my hair, he brought Laura back over to look at the colour and they both checked that I was happy with my haircut – which I absolutely was and am and feel so much better in myself for having had it done. Oliver walked me over to the reception desk, grabbed my coat for me and made sure that I had everything that I needed. Katherine booked me in for my next appointment took my payment and again was absolutely lovely.
I wanted to email and let you know that I had such a positive experience today in a situation which is normally incredibly difficult for me. In addition to your staff being wonderful, your salon is beautiful, the coffee and hot chocolate were very welcome, the massage chairs are amazing (I almost fell asleep!) and the idea of using the face cloths to dry hands is fantastic. All in all, I cannot praise you all highly enough. I am now booked in for a second appointment in 6 weeks and I am looking forward to it! I never thought that might be possible, but your staff have made it that way.
I am very grateful to you all for today and I wanted to take the time to let you know."
"Carol is amazing, knows exactly what I want every time. Great coffee too as well as a really funny lady. Carol is in the Lockerbie salon, same fab service in either salon. I'll not go to anyone else. :)"
