  • 5 star reviewBeen coming here since moving to Garforth from London . Just walked in about 5 years ago one Sunday and was made very welcome by Joanna .We have great conversations and she makes me laugh whilst cutting my hair brilliantly. I just find the whole time I am there a rather refreshing experiance to be quite honest with everyone .

  • 5 star reviewJoanna has been my hairdresser at her salon Blacks for many years . Nothing is too much trouble for her and she is a very good hearted person . I have experienced this after being seriously ill a few years ago as she was very good to me and actually lifted my spirits at a very bad time in my life as I was very depressed and wouldnt go out and it was Joanna that actually helped me conquer that. The salon atmosphere is always happy and everyone chats together . My hair is always exactly as I want it and the price never alters ever and its like an outing for me too.

  • 5 star reviewA great personality and a great hairdresser. Joanna has been doing my hair 10 years or more. I work all over the UK and sometimes abroad and one of my favourite things every month is calling in to see her and totally chilling and having a natter about nothing in particular whilst she expertly cuts my hair.

  • 5 star reviewPOTTY ! but one of the nicest people you could wish to meet . Joanna has done my hair for 30 odd years and you never know what shes going to tell you but it will always be entertaining even if it's supposed to be serious aswell and it is very funny sometimes when she is talking openly on the phone.Joanna will never do something that isnt right for your hair and explains why in great detail so you understand . Children love her in fact they are mesmerized I'd say better describes it because she is always eating and they cant believe how many times she offers them more biscuits juice and sweets as she is a very kind generous person too. The salon hasn't changed either in all the time I have been going and there is as everyone says a nice atmosphere at all times .

  • 5 star reviewMy hairdresser Joanna has been cutting my hair for 36 years and is one of the kindest honest (sometimes brutally but caringly brutally I mean ) thoughtful people I have ever met . My hair is cut absolutely perfectly every single time and is a simple style and a simple price to match . Joanna cares for peoples welfare and has helped me enormously over the years with certain things that have happened to me (too long to mention) she loves animals and oddly they love her too as my cat is very timid and theres only Joanna she allows to pick her up which we cant believe as no one else is allowed . Lovelly atmosphere in the salon and stimulating conversation and nobody is left out everyones two penneth has to be contributed .The coffees are delicious and very large good quality and lovely cakes or biscuits served alongside too. Joanna is both serious when necessary but more than anything the best way to describe her is very postively uplifting and extremely witty good fun .

  • 5 star review I have been taking my kids toJosnna at Blacks for years now and the reason why I do is due to the owner Joanna . Joanna is a very friendly welcoming and warm fun loving full of spirit and has a lot of tenderness in her heart as one of my children is autistic and they need patience and understanding and Joanna was like this with him from the first visit and we have been coming ever since to her . My kids love her and that does honesty speak for itself in my opinion. Great little cosey place too.

I have a trim on my long hair approx every 3 months and she doesn't charge too much either for doing it. I am offered a coffee & biscuits every time too. Joanna is a very approachable fun loving person and down to earth lady and leaps about in the salon and Nathan my 5 year old son loves to come with me and chats away to her too as he drinks orange juice and eats biscuits also. Its is certainly a very welcoming and friendly happy place .

  • 5 star reviewI come to Joanna at Blacks because she is firstly a good hairdresser and doesn't charge overly high prices yet gives each person alot of attention and in fact gives everyone who is there alot of care and attention which I feel comes naturally to her. My husband never used to come with me and just dropped me off and collected me but he comes far earlier and Joanna makes him a frothy coffee and ginger biscuits and we talk about alsorts and he loves to join in. It is a very nice atmosphere in Blacks and I could never imagine going elsewhere for all these reasons.Joanna is such a lovely woman and has a very nice personality and shows interest in everyone . A very nice happy comfortable place.

Joanna is not just a very good hairdresser that has done my hair for 20 years but is also a very lovelly lady. Joanna always says or writes the nicest of things and they are genuine as she is an extremely kind and thoughtful person . Joanna was very good to me after my accident and I was very anxious and she told me one day you will almost skip back into the salon .She was so right I did too. I love going there !

  • 5 star reviewI am a retired pilot and up until 18 months ago was a flying instructor which is how I met Joanna . Her nick name for me was bush baby and I had never been called such a name like this by anyone. However I did actually think she was right as I could have done with a bit of a make over in the hair department so I went to her salon and that's how we became friends. Although I live in North Yorkshire and maybe dont go to the hairdressers as often as I should the main thing I'd like to say is that Joanna became a very supportive friend to me after my wife Lynne passed away and invited me to events along with others because that is her nature . Thats how I know Joanna loves Eton mess and creme brulee and will eat yours if she can . A very good hairdresser and a thoughtful caring friend too .

  • 5 star reviewOut of all of us joanna always had this unique way of her own. Her attitude was and still is a type of high simplicity . In fact she always found things funny and pointless futile hardship if it wasnt. There was all these pantomimes carrying on but she used to just like watch from the sidelines and didnt get too involved and in fact found it all very funny.At hair shows she was more bothered about the food than outrageous unnecessary totally ridiculous styles that no one in their right mind would walk about with . A down to earth realist with a kind joyful understanding personality who is great company and welcomes everyone and makes them feel comfortable into her salon. It's not just joannas hairdressing skills that have seen her longevity it's her character and personality too. Especially when she says to people "When you look in the mirror and think to yourself my hair needs seeing to then that's when it needs seeing to." No pressure no hard sell It all speaks for itself

  • 5 star review A massive poodle in your head ????? Think yourself lucky I had two large garden tables and 8 made up chairs on my head in that car once. LAUGH !! wasnt the word.It was an absolute scream . Joanna is a very naturally funny person unless something is on her mind and we have all to thrash ot out with her at times . However she is not just a good hairdresser that goes without saying but the best friend anyone could have and absolutely great company there is never a dull moment . When we are all together time just passes so quickly as it has all these years. Joanna welcomes everyone and no one is lonely or bored around her . She is both upliftingl and has immense compassion and empathy if anything has happened . Even though she eats all the cakes. I have very thick curly hair and it takes her that long as we just chatter and laugh and laugh and laugh . I have known her many many years but all I can say is dont be in any kind of rush that's or have any chocolate cake or sweets on you when you go or even Jersey Royal Spuds in fact . She loves old fashioned cakes like fondant fancies and Battenburg and has Bern known to eat almost a whole Victoria sponge . Absolutely potty but an absolute marvelous friend too.X

  • 5 star reviewAfter our radio meet up in Chapel Allerton Leeds I called to Joanna's salon on Friday as she used to cut my hair too before i went to live in Scotland (due to work relocation) she cut my hair and trimmed my beard and all we did was laugh about the time she saw me whilst driving and offered me a lift only it was a two seater car and in the passenger seat was a gigantic poodle and BOTH were wearing sunglasses .I asked her where am I actually going to sit .Not often one gets a lift with a massive standard poodle on their head. Who by the way had exactly the same personality as Joanna that of being both completely potty aswell as very lovable. Joanna thought it was really funny and still does . I think to be able to laugh like we both did yesterday says it all.

  • 5 star reviewI have known Joanna about 10 years and she does my hair and my daughter Emily too. Emily loves Joanna as shes always eating something nice and shares it with her . In fact I have never not been here and shes not eating as everyone is always eating and drinking in Blacks as Joanna asks several times "Are you sure you dont want anything ?" but what is very funny is that she then says "Dont be frightened " which I find really funny as she is being serious . One thing Joanna is not very good at is technology and because I teach i find it very comically how she goes about things as it's rather unique and makes me laugh .My hair is always fantastic as she highlights and trims it exactly how I love it and always says to me my highlights are the colour of Emily's hair. Joanna is a very nice person and Emily loves her to bits .

  • 5 star reviewJoanna has been cutting my hair for about 17 years and it's always spot on . The salon is always full of laughter and great conversations go on . It is a very happy establishment. Joanna is a devil at times but in a lovable way . We worked together for quite some time and she was really good to me and used to bring me all these delicious foods .I used to get cross with her as she used to make faces at me sometimes as I was so serious then . Thankfully I am not so these days although zjoanna loves to remind me by impersonating me from when I used to be so which makes me laugh. There is no one else who can manage my curly hair like her but along with that I have always loved her company and we do laugh alot and especially about the days we worked together on the radio.

  • 5 star reviewLast November 2018 we were in Garforth as we were house hunting st the was a very cold Sunday afternoon and we came across Blacks and saw the attractive welcoming window and popped our heads in.Joanna immediately greeted us with a very cheery hello and we complimented her upon the salon. Although we were not customers she invited us to get warm and even made us hot chocolates and before we knew it we were part of it all and involved in pleasant conversation with other customers . Since then we have now moved to Garforth and I have been to Blacks for my hair styling . I am writing this here as I do not have a Google account but I want to say that the service care and attention and of course her hospitality has welcomed us to Garfoth and we are so glad we met Joanna on that cold Sunday afternoon last year. It is certainly a very happy place and my hair was cut the best I think I have ever had .Many thanks !

It was the way she was with him that was very noticable. Our son is autistic and sometimes this can be very difficult for him when meeting strangers .

  • 5 star reviewJoanna became my hairdresser when she had a flat tyre and was going crackers and I stopped and helped her and got a pat on the head whilst doing so and then she flung her arms round me and gave me a big kiss. I got my first haircut free and the rest is history....I go as I love how she does my hair and I like her character but if you think I am after her I can assure you I am not but put it this way she is on my Xmas card list for life x

  • 5 star reviewThe lady called Joanna here is arefreshing breath of fresh air in this commercial world. Her service attention and manner is outstanding and is not feigned in any way because it's her nature . My husband Mike and I were very impressed and very much moved how kind she was with our only child's first haircut.

  • 5 star reviewThis salon and the owner are lovely and she is a very good hairdresser indeed.Nothing is too much trouble for her and the most important point I wish to make is that the owner will not do anything you don't need or that wouldn't be right for a customers lifestyle or financially. A very kind character and very natural.
