I have been going to Absolute for many years for various treatments and have continued to do so since Tracey took over the salon.
Tracey is very welcoming and friendly and this quality shines through to her whole team.
When I walk through the door I am always greeted with a smile and put at ease; the salon is a relaxed, calm environment and a nice space to be in.
The treatments cover an extensive range and are always carried out very professionally. I can always rely on Tracey to give me impartial and truthful advice about the best treatment for me.
I feel very comfortable with the Absolute team and never mind seeing another therapist if Tracy is not available.
The team are flexible and try to accommodate me when making appointments. They will ring me if I am running late to check that I’m ok, or when I have on occasion, forgotten my appointment!!
I have recommended Absolute to many friends and most of my family are now clients as well…a real family affair!
I always feel fantastic when I leave the salon and would not dream of going anywhere else.

I have been a regular client for several years and had a range of treatments from manicures ,pedicures and  waxes to deep tissue massage which have all been excellent and far superior to any previous salon experiences.The staff are always friendly and professional and great care is clearly taken to ensure a high standard of cleanliness and a  welcoming and relaxed atmosphere .

I was trying to find somewhere local to get my eyebrows waxed and thought I would try Absolute Hair & Beauty. They were walking distance from where I was living. The first time I visited they very welcoming and friendly. Because of the service I received on my very first visit I thought I would discuss having a more intimate wax carried out. I was advised about Waxperts waxing and thought I would book the appointment. I was very apprehensive when I turned up for this 1st appointment but I was made to feel very at ease by Amanda and the rest of the staff. I have now been going to Absolute for about 6/7 months and even after moving house I am still happy to travel to this amazing salon who are always friendly. I have been to lots of other salons before for different services and have never felt more comfortable than at Absolute Hair & Beauty.

Absolute Hair and Beauty is an absolutely fabulous salon. I started visiting about 7 months ago after some years as a regular client at another salon in the SW but wanted to find a Guinot product using establishment closer to home.
From my first visit I have been so impressed with every aspect- from the quiet location, tucked away in a residential part of the city; the calm and relaxing atmosphere; the lovely decor and the highly efficient booking and reminder system. All the staff have a lovely, calm professionalism.
However, the real benefits of Absolute are in the standard of the treatments and the subsequent results. I see Hannah for pedicures which include excellent massage and are long lasting. As a keen dancer this is so appreciated!
I see Amanda for Guinot facials, having two or three different variations depending on how my skin is and what she recommends. Although a confirmed Guinot fan for about 10 years, I’ve seen a definite difference in my skin after Amanda’s work- more even tone, smoothed out fine lines and a lasting softness. Her knowledge of the products and ability to explain their various qualities is impressive.
All in all I wish I’d found you years ago. I would certainly highly recommend a visit.

I have attended the Absolute Hair and Beauty Salon for the past 13years, staff have changed but the ethos was always calm, helpful and friendly. Under new management a couple of years ago that ethos was very much the same, however, it has grown and developed to become more positive,  more concerned with the customer, more personal and today delivers a wider range of treatments at a consequently wider range of prices.
The advice given is always measured, friendly and put in such a way that there is no hard sell or pressure. Time is given to explain what the treatments will do and how to prolong their effects.
The atmosphere is always calm and welcoming, whilst efficient and professional. Today, staff turnover is almost nonexistent, the team of beauty therapists and hairdressers all get along well, work as a team and cover well for each other. They are always cheerful, friendly and are concerned to ensure customers leave the salon happy with their appointment.
It is always a pleasure to have an appointment at the salon, you know when you walk in there will be a smile waiting for you and a genuine interest in your wellbeing. As an individual you feel like you are visiting friends!
This is written by a very satisfied customer, one who looks forward to her visits. A very big thank you, to the team at Absolute Hair and Beauty.

Dear Tracy,

It is with much enthusiasm that I am writing to recommend Absolute Hair and Beauty.

I have been coming to Absolute Hair and Beauty since it first opened and have always been delighted with the treatments I have received. Hairdressers and Beauticians alike are always courteous, friendly and professional. They are experts in everything they do and make every customer feel valued and special.

I can highly recommend your business.

Yours sincerely,

To whomever it may concern,

I would like to offer the following testimonial in support of the small business “Absolute Hair and Beauty” and its owner Tracy Rutherford.

Having been a client of Amanda’s for many years, I have had the unique opportunity to see how the business has grown and developed under new ownership, whilst improving its commitment to intimate and friendly customer service.

In the few short years since Tracy has taken over the business, the salon has had a complete refit, providing both an exciting hub for the latest beauty innovations at the front of house, whilst maintaining calm, relaxing environment further back in the site, for beauty treatments. The fresh thoughtful and inviting décor is also indicative of the type of attention to detail you receive as a client.

Throughout this time, in testament to the great customer care that clients receive, I have watched the clientele swell and new employees have needed to be added to the team. Initially, on a selfish note, this growth in business caused me some concern as I thought the personal touch might somehow be diminished and access to my favourite therapists would be more challenging. However, this was to be an erroneous concern. Every effort is always made to accommodate me as a client, fitting around my schedule as much as possible.

In short I could not recommend Absolute Beauty highly enough: a client for nearly 20 years and am sure to be a client for the next 20.

Kind Regards

Samantha S
