Excellent salon. I’ve been getting Balayage done by Amy for a couple of years now and it is always perfect. Couldn’t be happier!

Such a magnificent salon

The best salon that I’ve been to – both in the UK and abroad. James is a wonderful hairdresser and knows how to bring out the best in my hair. The atmosphere in the salon is very friendly, and I always feel comfortable and relaxed. I would recommend this salon to anyone; it truly is excellent.

Great hair dye & cut from Kirsty

First time in the last few years I've liked my haircut after leaving a salon. Great first trip to the salon, really great colour and cut and done pretty quickly considering it was a big job!! 🙂 Will 100% be back. Thank you Kirsty!!

Brilliant balayage with Kirsty

Lovely experience! I had my hair colour transformed by Kirsty from blond to bright chilli red balayage. It looks amazing and Kirsty even text me a plan of how to look after the colour and what products to use in her own time!! I enjoyed the salon experience and it really felt like Kirsty cared about the end result and enjoyed her job. Thank you I will definitely return

- Sophie

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.
- Emily Eyre

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
- Ally Amaro

- Danni

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!
- Megan fallone

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!!
- Katherine


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
