Never having been before I was recommended and from the minute I rang I felt very secure and that I was talking to someone who understood perfectly. Long story short ,I was thrilled with the result as my hair was the best I think I've ever experienced and I felt wonderful. Very firm attitude and straight to the point but my goodness the proof is in the result. Very nice place and extremely caring lady here who knows what she's talking about both in her job and life because I found the whole time I was in Blacks a very uplifting and refreshing experience.

  • 5 star reviewI have been coming to Blacks since joanna opened as she 7sed to do my hair at home many moons ago. Everyone loves joanna because she's always been the same be it in salon or in sainsburys. My hair is always just right with colour and cut and her prices hardly ever alter. Most of all joanna brings people together and you feel uplifted and confident through knowing her as I am quite a reserved person but at Blacks everyone blends in the conversation going on at the time because Joanna makes sure they are included. A very good hearted lovely person and hairdresser to me.

Watch out though if you dont want a coffee and a million biscuits she will ask you hundreds of times and I have witnessed this and think it's so funny. I love her as shes so unique and a real dare devil at times but so alive and real as I once saw her just suddenly sprint up the street in bright yellow rubber gloves to the pillar box before she missed the pick up and everyone wondered where shed gone .

  • 5 star reviewMy hairdresser Joanna is an absolute tonic. I had my hair cut yesterday (Saturday ) and she made me laugh as she was driving to Birmingham later on and was impersonated the clients who are always rushing . It was probably the funniest I'd ever experienced of all my visits to Blacks . My hair is always coloured and cut to perfection even though all this goes on . It is so uplifting going to Blacks because there is never a dull moment there ever . Always a lovely person and always a very happy place .

  • 5 star reviewWe have known Joanna many years and a nicer woman you couldnt meet . Extremely thoughtful and kind hearted and seen us through many events in our family . Joanna is a brilliant hairdresser and has a brilliant personality to match. Never a dull moment in the salon. Everyone talks in like one big conversation . Very good with people she is too. There's no rushing though as Joanna cant tolerate it and it's sometimes very funny how she responds to being time challenged by anyone. Its is a very happy place thats for sure and very homely and cosey too.

The salon is a very comfortable welcoming and happy place and everyone chats together .There is always alot of laughter too come to that because Joanna has a fantastic quick witted sense of humour and if you went into the salon down in the dumps say , then I certainly guarantee you wont when you come out .

  • 5 star reviewMy hairdresser is Joanna at Blacks also and has been not just an excellent hairdresser to me for many years, but one of the most kindest and thoughtful people I have ever known. Joanna has a really very unique personality and although takes her work very seriously, she also is so full of life and nice to be around. The atmosphere in Blacks is always happy and people all talk together (even newcomers ) there is no awkward feel ever and nor does Joanna push selling anything, but by the time she's spoken in great detail to you regarding your hair you feel and know for sure that you are in the hands of someone who knows what's shes' talking about and feel very well cared for. Josnna takes her time with every single person whoever you are . I love to go to her salon on a Sunday as I am a nurse and can get my sleep rebalanced beforehand . I relax with the Hello mag and as many coffees as I want whilst I wait my highlights developing. I live quite near too so what could bd better than all this. Great stuff !!!!

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 .

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

I came here due to my usual one being away on holiday and I knew of this one but had never attended here. What a down to earth interesting refreshing person joanna is .No rushing no pointless passing the time talk...interested in my hobby of classic cars and very hospitable indeed with a lovelly hot chocolate and biscuits and a very good sense of humour and my hair cut was spot on . Tar very much jo.

  • 5 star reviewHere is my review. My hairdresser joanna is a really lovely person because firstly she's very genuine and has a very caring nature but I come to her because she is a very good hairdresser and very naturally funny. I like her as she is a very compassionate person too as my husband is no longer here and she was very kind to me during the period he was ill and I know he was very fond of her too as she came to our home in the latter part of his life and he looked forward to it as she made him laugh .

  • 5 star reviewI love my hairdresser at Blacks and have always been very happy. I work in the centre of Leeds as I am an associate solicitor in a very busy law firm and it's so refreshing to be in joanna's company. Nothing is too much trouble and whilst waiting for my highlights to develop we have great conversations and she really makes me laugh. She's just a great person and even when nutters phone her(who are not customers) she deals with it very entertainingly I have to say.

  • 5 star reviewI have been coming to joanna for quite some time now. I have watched her whilst my colour is taking and I can well say that sometimes she is put on but how she handles people is so nice and responds very honestly but in a humorous way which immediately disarms the demanding I'd say quite selfish ones . She takes so much care over everyone of us and I am always very satisfied.joanna naturally has a very good character and is a very caring person and sometimes extremely funny.

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
