Dean Torkington, Meatloaf

I cant thank Joana and the team enough for the brilliant job they have done on my hair. I would highly reccomend them for their profesionalism confidentiality and support. After years trying lotions potions and tablets to make my hair grow,nothing works,I hoped that hair extensions would work for me. After having a consultation with Joana she was able to recommend the best procedure for me. Iv’e now got my new look had lots of compliments and my 16 year old grandson says his friends say I dont look old enough to be a nana. Its now worth getting ready in the morning and putting nice clothes on. My gallery pictures are 12-13-14 before and after.
