You're welcome.

Pure Hair Studio


Calling all blondes and lovers of balayage, Pure Hair Studio should definitely be on your radar.

Changes can take up to three hours or sometimes need more than one visit and a comprehensive plan. Their colour service will work with you to ensure your hair is treated, repaired and restored to its optimum strength and quality every step of the way.
