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.
