“I would just like to say Thank you very much for the help I received. I have a lot of grey hair, the colour I was using was not taking to my roots. I phoned the office and got exceptional, professional help and tips on what to do with stubborn grey hair and it worked wonders. Many, many thanks for all your help, much appreciated."

Mrs M. (Dorset)

"I've bleached my hair for 45 years. Last year my hair began to split and fallout - cue panic stations! I discovered Daniel Field Water Colours on the web - joy, no bleach! I use the palest soft golden blonde, 9.03. It's a fantastic colour that leaves my hair in very good condition with lots of body to it. I'm so happy that now I'll never have to use bleach again. My hair is a beautiful light golden blonde. I also use your body builder spray - love it! Thanks Daniel Field"

Mrs Jayne Manifol-Quinn

"Just want to say a big thank you for all the help and advice you have given me.

I have phoned three times now, and each time I have been treated with patience, consideration and helpful advice. Fantastic customer service.

I like the products, wish I had found them years ago. It’s wonderful to be able to colour my hair and keep it in good conditioner.

Only regret, your saloon in North London and I’m in south London, would have loved to have had my colour done professionally."
Nancy, London

Mrs K, Glasgow

“Fast Friendly service and the products are fab!!
Ms C Bolton

“Thank you for such a personal and excellent service.”
June R Harwich, Essex

"The improvement of my hair texture and glossiness of pre-coloured hair had returned after using it just for the first time. Having used it on a regular basis, my hair has definitely become thicker as I no longer use harsh chemical on my hair. For me, it isn’t just a hair colour that covers the grey, but it is also a conditioning treatment. Many thanks for your prompt and friendly service"
Frances, Manchester

"I can not even begin to tell you how fantastic the colour is. Not only does it give me my natural colour, but leaves my hair with brilliant shine and quality which has been missing for such a long time. Thank you."
