" Loaf is the best salon I have come across! The staff are nice and I now love my colour, courtesy of Lorraine - who gave me two great consultations prior to my first two appointments to ensure we were both on the same page re: my exact desired colour and the health of my hair. I also love the massage lazy-boy type chairs where you get your hair washed, plus the sweet scalp massage during this process! Loaf also..." Sarah - Christchurch
