Coronavirus update

Following the latest guidance from the UK government, we have made the decision to temporarily close as of the 22nd March.

We have come to this decision with a heavy heart, to ensure the continued health and safety of our team and customers.

We hope to be up and running again as soon as the situation permits and will continue to update you here and on our social media, as and when any changes occur.

Stay safe,
Pani, Helen & Sarah

What our customers have to say

Lovely staff at Panelle hair studio with a friendly atmosphere and service. I’ve come to have my hair cut from Pani for over 3 years now, the cut a few days ago as consistent as the first. Pani is attentive and will always take the time to go the extra mile to make sure everything is perfect. I’ll always be back to get my hair cut here.
