Feedback and Testimonials


I went to Nik for a bit of colour action, and rather than just going hell for (fake) leather at it she tested the strength of my hair first. She advised me not to colour it but instead treated it and gave me brilliant pointers on how to look after it better. I left with what looked like a different head of hair entirely! I felt in really safe hands, and she was utterly lovely to hang out with for a couple of hours. I'm definitely darkening her doors again. Literally couldn't recommend highly enough.”



Love my new hair - Nik helped me achieve vibrant purple from dark brown. She is very knowledgeable and her initial consultation steered me towards balayage which has meant I have some lovely tones amongst the purple and will easier to maintain too.
I'm so used to going to non vegan hairdressers for dry cuts (to avoid the products) that it was a rare treat to have the full treatment and a cup of tea and a biscuit too!



“Lovely job! Nik coped very well with my unruly, curly mop! Gorgeous products as well and with a clear conscience knowing they're vegan and cruelty- free. Lovely lady too.”


Nik did a brilliant job with my hair as always. She did my hair and nails beautifully for my wedding and this time she did me some waves. Always great, professional and friendly. The salon is beautiful too and so glad everything is vegan and cruelty free. I never go anywhere else!


Nik was absolutely lovely, and took the time to talk through everything we wanted first. She is very knowledgeable, and a really fantastic hair stylist and colourist. Her vegan, organic salon is beautiful and relaxing .. and we will definitely not be going anywhere else!

Being an ex therapist I have been known to be fussy with products and treatments. I’ve just had a facial with Nic and I was really impressed. The salon is a wonderful, clean and relaxing space. My facial was wonderfully relaxing. The products left my skin feeling amazing. There was no hard sell just honest knowledgeable advice. I brought the Tropic super greens boost oil, already know this is a beauty must have!



It’s always a lovely relaxing experience with Nichola. Beautiful results every time, I have also been using the Organic colour system shampoo conditioner that Nichola recommended and have noticed a difference in a week.


Love it here always relaxing and time to myself! Nik is great really welcoming and has a real passion and pride for making sure the treatments are as best as they can be!

Had my first hair appointment today with Nik. I was so impressed. She is so lovely & friendly, and excellent in her field. My hair looks awesome! The salon is welcoming and relaxing & Nik makes you really feel at home. It’s so nice to find a salon that’s completely vegan & cruelty free. This is a very difficult thing to find, so this is a gem! I would definitely recommend Paladin & will be back soon for sure! (Also excellent coffee with oat milk!) stage to tell the world how great you are!

Such a relief to be able to find a great hairdresser who uses cruelty-free treatments. What a god send! On top of that she's a lovely lady and so knowledgeable.
As someone with thick, curly hair it's rare to find someone who knows how to care for my hair properly and Nik does.
Would recommend to anyone. So glad I found her!

I am so happy with my colour and cut since I found Nichola. My colour is perfect and the condition of my hair has improved dramatically. I couldn’t recommend Nichola more!
