Wedding hair
Great wedding hair by Dorothy and the Karma team. First class professional and personal service and great value for money. I would highly recommend Karma for your wedding hair. My bridesmaids myself and my mother were delighted with our hair and it was a totally relaxing experience to start my wedding day

Most relaxing and fun part of my wedding
I really wish I could give more than five stars to Dorothy! She made my whole getting ready experience so relaxing and enjoyable. I love my hair it was exactly how I imagined, I was torn between two styles and Dorothy took these options and made it something more. My girls looked amazing too. But she went that extra mile for us as my mum has a severe allergy and can't use any hair products so that means going the salon was difficult for her but Dorothy came out to our home and made my mum feel so relaxed and made her look fabulous. It was fantastic having her there being apart of all the excitement. I would highly recommend her to any bride. Dorothy you're a star. You definitely deserve more than five stars.

If 6 Stars were possible...
I can’t thank Dee and the Team at Karma enough for being so brilliant in the run up to our Wedding day. From the consultation with my BM’s to the morning of the wedding, Dee was just incredible. She listened and had her own suggestions, added fun, laughter and calmness to my house while everyone was getting ready. The result was styles both me and my three (wildly different character) BM’s loved. Our hair looked as perfect at 1am as it had done walking into the church at 1pm! I met Dee at a wedding fair and started getting my hair cut at Karma, I’ve been married two years and I’m still going back.

Amazing wedding hair
Not only did Dorothy open the salon to us privately on a Sunday to do our trial hair, she came out to the house on the morning of the wedding elimating the whole stress of having to go to the salon and ensuring the whole bridal party could stay in the one place. I knew what way I wanted my hair and Dorothy executed it to perfection. Could not highly recommend enough for doing your wedding hair, not only is Dorothy highly skilled at her job but is knowledgable to provide guidance, easy going when people change their minds (namely my bridesmaids) and friendly ensuring that whilst she is doing your hair you stay calm during those last minute nerves on the morning of your big day

Fabulous hair
There was no question on who would do my wedding hair. I have been going to Dorothy since I was 15yrs old! Fabulous and personal service, from the salon to ourselves for the trial to Dorothy's calming influence on the big day. All 5 of the bridal party all had their hair done at our home and nothing was a bother. Would highly recommend this salon and Dorothy for any potential bride looking anything from traditional to modern and on trend. Excellent salon.
