Lovely experience

My boyfriend and I both have our hair done here by Kirsty and neither of us could ask for better. Our highlights are beautiful and the whole experience is so brilliant. Kirsty is our go-to, but all the staff are amazing, this is definitely the best hairdressers either of us have had in York, between the staff and the look of the salon itself you do feel very glamorous when you leave and that’s all anyone could ask for.

Amazing experience with Kirsty

I had a balayage done by Kirsty and I couldn’t be happier. It was the first time I’d had my hair done since lockdown and she eased my nerves and made me feel so comfortable. I was also nervous about the drastic change from natural brunette to quite a lot blonder abs she made me feel so comfortable. Not only did she do an amazing job, she made the long experience so enjoyable by being so kind and conversational. I’m in love with my hair and I now have a favourite salon and hairdresser. Thank you so much! x

Highly recommended Amy!

First time coming to get my hair done at Blake and butler today and saw the lovely Amy who did an AMAZING job. Fully transformed my hair and brought it back to life with just a wash and cut. Couldn't be happier and will definitely be coming back to see her next time and hopefully everytime after that. Thanks so much!

Best hairdresser!

I’ve had a cut and blow dry by Sharron three times and I won’t go anywhere else now! I’ve got long, thick hair and she cuts it so nicely, with good layers and shape and a really lovely, natural blow dry! I actually enjoy going to the hairdressers now, highly recommend!!

Everyone was lovely and professional, my hair looks amazing and so many people have complimented me on it. Feel like a real life princess, shame there’s nowhere to take it at the moment! Will be going back

Kirsty the highlight queen

Blake & Butler is a tasteful, pretty salon and the staff are always lovely. I had highlights done by Kirsty (which I’m sure was a chore after lots of lockdown neglect). I am beyond happy with how it came out, which was completely due to her vast knowledge and experience. I will definitely be asking for Kirsty to do my hair again!

Steph is AMAZING! A lash and brow QUEEN

Fantastic visit ❤️

I booked for my post covid haircut/restyle with James on Friday 30th April. The premises were spotless and covid safe. James was incredible. He listened to everything I said and actually surpassed my expectations in a new look. My hair had grown lank and a little tired, yet I left feeling happy and pretty (even for my age). Thank you so much for cheering me up after this torrid time. My friends all loved my new haircut. I can’t recommend James and Sharron enough. Thanks guys xxx

Kirsty saved my confidence

I found myself at Blake and Butler in desperate need of some TLC and help after stress left my hair in a terrible state. Kirsty took on the challenge, and helped me colour and style in ways to help. She took the time to listen and understood my nervousness. I started at B&B with long half faded colour hair with thinning patches, ashamed of how I looked. Over a number of appointments, each time getting better, I had the confidence to go completely bold and go with Short blonde hair by choice. Kirsty listened and delivered each time. A miracle worker. I’m now no longer scared to go to a salon full of people, because I know that I’ll be looked after, and listened to without judgement. Cannot thank her enough!!
