"I have been a client of April's and Shine for over 22 years. I always come out with a smile on my face, feeling and looking much better. With the help of colour, I look a lot younger than my years".

"I have been a very satisfied client of "Shine" for the last 10 years. Their professional approach and very friendly staff make my visit to "Shine" a real pleasure. They have a modern approach to styling which ensures my hair always looks well styled and in top condition. I highly recommend Shine Hairdressers. Five Stars"
"Before I came to Shine I was on a mission to find a new hairdresser. Due to my thick hair and its reluctance to take colour well I had promised myself I would not see another hairdreser until I was really confident it was the right one for me. I was always checking out peoples hair colour, cut and most importantly hair type. I was always asking where they got their hair done. It was this determination and process that brought me the wonderful gift of Shine and in particular April.
I felt a huge sense of relief and happiness after my first appointment. The kind where you walk out with a big smile that lasts the whole day. April listened to me and took the time to discuss all aspects of my hair that we needed to, to give her a full picture. Just from speaking with her I could tell she understood my needs and had plenty of helpful ideas and expertise. The result was better than I ever anticipated and I left the salon certain that I would return and looking forward to sharing my future hair experiences with the Shine team.
I gained a hairdresser and salon that I trust and a place where I feel welcome, comfortable to be myself and valued as an individual. I have a team of friends now at Shine who know me and are really helpful at recommending options appropriate to my needs at any specific time. From shampoos and styling products to treatments or changes in style or colour. The communication both ways is honest and I never come away unhappy. i look forward to my 6 weekly appointments and my hair always looks fantastic when I leave.
Thanks so much to April and the Shine team for taking the time to value you clients and for the work and heart you put in to everyday".

"The best salon experience I've ever had . . . These hairdressers get the right results EVERY time! You can expect first rate individual service in a relaxed, enjoyable setting, and the very best product selection and professional advice. I wouldn't go anywhere else! My hair has never been in such top condition! Recommend highly to all."
"Thank you girls so much for opening the salon 2 hours early to do my beautiful updo for my sisters beach wedding! I got so many compliments on the day - I actually felt like the bride!! Thanks again, Allison W."
"Just a quick note to say how delighted I am with my hair colour. Pierce talked me out of balayage and instead did a bit of a repair job. I'm so happy with it. It looks natural and will be relatively low maintenance and yet has retained and overall light (not yellow) colour. I travel a lot and have had my hair done in cities across the world by many stylists. This is the best yet! So thank you Pierce. I'll be recommending you to all my friends to go to Shine."
"Friends and colleagues love the colour and cut, so I’m feeling the love of a much needed ‘tune up’ for Spring!
