One delighted client shared, “Amie’s been doing my hair for seven years and I’ve never been disappointed. She has the ability to truly listen to what you desire and understand how to ‘bring it to life’, especially balayage.” They continued, “I recently relocated to The Netherlands and will still be coming to visit Amie for my hair when I visit the UK. Once she does your hair, you won’t want anyone else to touch it again.” Another pleased client says, “I would like to say a huge thank you to the very talented Grace who spent hours of her time colour correcting my hair. She is so talented and gifted at what she does. The colour, the cut, and re-style was second to none. Absolutely amazing. Nice atmosphere and environment. I will definitely be returning.” Company: Thrive With Hair Contact: Jamie Wright Email: Website: Thrive With Hair (Thrive) is a family-run professional hair salon led by husband and wife team, Jamie and Amie, who have 35+ years’ experience in the industry.
