When passion becomes a profession and quality matters, my philosophy has always been that continuing education is essential for continued growth.

Over the last 50 years in this business I have been very lucky to work with many great and talented hairdressers all at different levels.

    Thank you Katie for a lovely pixie cut,and praise to Blakes customers service for always making you welcome
    Katie Kent
    I had the best and most professional service here. Grace was absolutely amazing and really friendly and welcoming. She completely transformed my hair, I left with it feeling 100x healthier, shinier and all round just better. I have had so many compliments since getting my hair done, really recommend getting a balayage done by Grace at Blakes!

    My daughter (13yo) had her hair cut this evening. Not only is the cut brilliant (she loves it) but the hairdresser took the time to give her tips on how to maintain it and showed her tips on how to style it. Amazing and friendly service - would highly recommend.
    Today I had my hair cut by Mike on recommendation and I absolutely love it. Apart from a great hair cut, Mike gave me advice on how to style my hair and advised what products to use. I will definitely be returning. The salon is friendly and the atmosphere is great. Highly recommend.
    Had my first haircut by Mike this evening. In just one word, Perfection. I was made to feel comfortable and welcome. The finished haircut was exactly what I wanted. Already booked for my next appointment

    Had lash extensions done by Nor - she\'s very experienced and felt in very capable hands.
    I have been coming to Blakes for 16 years and have never had a bad experience no matter who I have had do my hair. All the staff are so friendly and most have worked there for years- its nice to go back and see a familiar face.
    Friendly and professional service by Grace my stylist, along with all her colleagues. Made me feel very welcomed and valued. Thank you very much

    I can’t rate this salon highly enough. I had a disastrous colour at another Canterbury salon, where I went from blonde to mud/khaki (obviously not what I’d asked for!). The same day, I called Blakes in distress and explained; the super friendly receptionist got me in immediately (within 15 minutes), where I had a consultation with Mike, who took hair strands to test for colour removal. He also gave me a temporary toning rinse, free of charge, before I could come back for a full colour correction in two days after a skin test. I had a 5 hour appointment today with amazing Annie, who stripped out all of the hideous previous colour and restored my blonde - it is what I wanted originally, and more. Thank you, thank you, thank you Annie and Mike - I am so happy with my hair and will never go anywhere else for colour ever again! The service at Blakes is exceptional.

    What a complete asset Grace is! I feel I could call her my friend. She is utterly professional, attentive and personable, but above all, Talented. Grace is intuitive in her work and makes me feel totally confident that I am in safe hands. Every time Grace does my hair I comment that it has never looked so lovely, then I return and she surprises herself. Thank you so much Grace, Blakes is very lucky.

The lovely Kirstie performed a miracle, great colour, good cut and lovely healthy looking shiny hair. I was made to feel very welcome. Lovely people working there. Didn't hesitate to book my next appointment!

    I went here today for hair products for a family member. All the staff was really helpful and polite. As I don't know anything about hair products they explained everything they had in great detail. ​ Very knowledgeable people ​ Thanks
