Short story of our hair salon

Hi, my name is Jass , The director of real friends salon limited,I have been in the industry for 13 years and I love it. I got into the salon business to make a change, Over the years before I was in the industry, I went to numerous salons to have my hair done and was never happy with the customer service, knowledge of hair, lost of hairline and unfriendly stylists, so I decided to make a change.

You know, we often complain about things in life, but what are we doing to make a change? That’s why I came up with the name Real Friends. Here at Real Friends we treat our customers like how you would treat a real friend.

Real friends have a friendly atmosphere, friendly staff, a team of experienced, creative and professional barbers and hairstylists.

My aim is to always make sure clients leave the salon satisfied, enjoy healthy hair and knowing that we are their real friends.
Second aim is to share my knowledge with others, especially the young up and coming stylists and also to expand into America, Africa ext.
