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.

    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.

    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.

    I had my first appointment at Blakes after my previous hairdresser of 40 years retired. I was nervous. I was thrilled by the results. 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!

    If you’re looking for professionals who know what they’re doing and have amazing customer service, I cannot recommend Blake’s enough! Everyone there is friendly, and if you’re struggling to find free time to go/ would rather book online YOU CAN! Their online booking is a dream for when you have a really busy week and don’t have time to go back and forth looking for an appointment!! Canterbury has a fair few salons but I have to say Blake’s is the best so far!

    have been a client at Blake’s Hair and Beauty for many years. The salon is full of lovely, welcoming and friendly staff who will go out of their way to help and to make you feel comfortable. They tolerated my moaning when I was heavily pregnant and at their doorstep asking for a blow dry every other day, they issued a special certificate when my daughter’s hair was cut for the first time, and they never charge for a service if it’s your birthday! There are often cakes on the go as well! I once made a comment on how lovely they were and when I got home I found a recipe sent to me by text.

    This is a very friendly salon in a very convenient part of the city. My hairdresser has done my hair for more than ten years which is a recommendation in itself.
