What our guests are saying about us

This was the best experience I’ve had at a salon… ever! Everyone there is so kind and welcoming and the whole experience was so pampering! Definitely high quality and worth the money, especially when the final result was beautiful

Becky Leah

Wasnt realy sure what to have done colour wise but was listened to and ideas suggested. I was so pleased with my Bespoke colouring and have had lots of compliments about my hair Everyone says it looks very natural and I love it.Thankyou BOB

Sarah Hartley

have had my hair cut by Carey twice. Always happy with the result. It is not easy to find a stylist who knows how to cut Asian hair. The place is clean. The service is really nice.

Sandra W

This was my first time at the salon and always get anxious when having my hair cut. Callum was brilliant with me and my hair cut was perfect! Thank you

Tamara Brown

Had hair cut and coloured recently with Adele Sylvester, she was great and styled my hair brilliantly.

Tracey Avery

Excellent service, cannot fault it at all!

Jean Currey

Wow what can I say… amazing! I went to B.O.Bs looking like Gerri Halliwell from the Spice Girls after a bad experience at another local salon and Melloney, bless her, did the most amazing job correcting my hair. It was a scary task, but this didn’t faze her and was so helpful and knew exactly what to do. I’m so thankful and will always be using this salon from now on. I couldn’t of hoped for better x

Karla Edwards

Went for a colour consultation and felt very safe. They were very friendly and helpful. I felt so comfortable I booked for highlights to be done. Lovely place.

Susan Warrior

Great company. Friendly good service,easy parking and Adele is a brillliant hairdresser especially if you have long hair or love flicky curls!


A lovely salon with great staff and atmosphere. They’ll always try to fit you in for your time, give great advice and wonderful hairdos. I’m particularly pleased to have found a salon that can cope easily with naturally curly hair and give me the advice I need on managing it best. Adele is my stylist but they’re all great. Carry on the good work BOB Hairdressing Bracknell.
