“As usual! All the measures were in place to make us feel safe. Everything was taken in good humour, which made things less intimidating. The situation is serious, of course, but some places are so intimidating with all the tape and signage etc. The balance here was spot on.”
“ I felt extremely lucky to get an appointment on their first day of opening following lockdown (4th July). I had been updated throughout the lockdown via text but still felt nervous because not only was this my visit to Colman and Colman since lockdown it was also my first visit to Kendal since lockdown. However, on arrival all safety measures were in place. It felt so safe, professional and calm and I felt immediately at ease. Kerry and Russell have gone the extra mile with safety measures. What can I say Kerry, thank you for my much needed highlights and cut I feel so much better. You are all true professionals.”
“Thank you for making a great job of my hair after all these weeks. I am sure your clients are going to feel very confident when they come to the Salon because all the staff made you feel very relaxed. Good Luck over this difficulty period.“
“Great experience today in the now COVID secure salon. I was a bit worried before I arrived but no need to it was lovely and friendly as always. Hair now looking great! Thanks Kerry and the Team for making me feel welcome and safe.“
“Still a lovely experience! You’re all doing fantastic! Great to see you all. Thanks very much! 5 Stars!”
“Was very reassured how the salon performed today with all the new COVID measures. The atmosphere was very relaxed considering and not as restrictive as I had imagined. Thank you Jess for a great colour and cut. Really pleased with it.“
“I was a little nervous as this was the first time I had ventured into Kendal since Lockdown, but had no need to be. The staff were very welcoming, and the safety measures put in place did not make me feel uncomfortable at all. I’ts so nice to finally have manageable hair. Thank you to all.”
“Even with measures in place due to Covid, my visit to the salon was relaxing and enjoyable. Kerry & the team really listens to what you want for your hair and always advise what will work. Really pleased with the result. Thank you C & C.“
