I used to go to Toni & Guy in Manchester but have now been having my hair cut by Will for the last 4 years and I can honestly say that he is the best hairdresser that I have ever had. He always cuts and styles my hair exactly as I expect and always goes the extra mile to ask if I want a different finish and I always leave the salon feeling special. My mum and husband also use the salon and have always had an excellent experience with James. All the salon staff are excellent, very friendly and welcoming which adds to overall experience. I would recommend the everyone, you won't be disappointed.


My family and I have been going to this salon since it was opened, and I can say it has been the best salon I have been to by far, from the moment you arrive to the second you leave the staff are courteous and helpful, Rachelle has been my stylist for a couple of years now and she is always friendly and cuts and styles my hair to my requirements. Foran and Blake has certainly to be recommended always a pleasure.


Foran & Blake (re-named from Hair 4 U 12 months ago) has been open 5 years today! Yey!!!!

I have been a customer of Foran & Blake for just over four years. I found the company after searching the web years ago.

Will used to cut my hair when I was 18 to 20 and almost ten years later, I still hadn't found anyone who was as good!

Will moved salon to the Market Walk last year as his business expanded.

The old salon had a great feel to it but the new salon is even better! The buzzing atmosphere and friendly staff are superb. There is a relaxing area which had mood lighting where you have your hair washed. The salon feels very luxurious from start to finish! Leaving Foran & Blake salon, I always feel pampered and relaxed. Something I rarely fe with a hyper 5 year old in the house!

Will is an amazing stylist who I have tried and failed to match... Even when I've visited the expensive named salons in London!

His staff are trained to the highest standards in the salon and Will's expertise is a massive influence to the level of service that everyone receives.

To sum up:
Customer service - 10/10
Products used - 10/10
Ambiance - 10/10
Chatty and friendly staff - 10/10
Music - 10/10
Haircut/colour - OFF THE SCALE!!!

Overall experience - 10/10!!!!!

I'll never go anywhere else!


I have been visiting Foran & Blake for 6 years now, I first started using them when my hair dresser moved and went to work with them, I have not looked back since. I also find their service outstanding! The staff are always welcoming and friendly, I am always greeted with a smile which is a really nice feeling.

They are always offering good sound advice and a level of service second to none, thats why I return, time and time again. The prices are more than resonable in my opinion, these are the words of a more than happy client. This is my little treat every six weeks too, so I really look forward to visiting them and being pamperd.


Had a fantastic haircut this week at this lovely salon - came out feeling a million times better than when I walked in! The colour was just gorgeous, exactly what I wanted. I never have to worry about how my hair is going to look; I can rely on Will to get it right! Everyone at this salon is so friendly, it has a great atmosphere - always welcoming. The staff are all so nice, it's a real pleasure to be there - they really seem to enjoy working there. They all raise money together for local charities, too. All in all, a great place - a real find and I recommend it unreservedly.


I just went to Foran and Blake today. I walk in and I was greeted with a smiling face . I always feel welcomed and everyone asked how I was and how my family is. Will and his team do such a wonderful job making their customers "friends" enjoy visiting the salon for a coffee and a chat . Or a great full head color and hair cut. My hair is very difficult to color and can turn some interesting colors but Will has mastered it with ease. I went out this evening and got so many compliments about my hair from co workers.


I have been going to Foran and Blake and previously Hair 4 u for probably 5 years, after following my stylist there, and have never been happier with my hair. The whole experience is brilliant, the staff are all very friendly and welcoming.

I recently went in on a very busy Sat, and was amazed at how every member of staff help one another, real team work, and i can only congratulate Will the manager for his skills in not only hairdressing but management, everyone seems so happy to be there, customers included!

All this makes being there more enjoyable, and valued as a customer. At no point during my appointment did i feel rushed, even though they were very busy, and came out with the perfect hairdo for a wedding that afternoon. In the 5 years i have been going i have never come away unhappy with anything, I would recommend this salon to anyone, you won't be disappointed.


Being an young normal guy having my hair cut used to be such a massive chore. I always found it a thoroughly depressing experiance, that was untill one day approximately 6 years ago when i walked into Foran and blake, as its called now. The friendly staff immediately put me at ease, are so friendly and make you feel really welcome. (also they are all very attractive which is a bonus!) I have several stylists in this 6 years and have never had anything but a really good experiance. My hair has always been cut how i wanted it and to a fantastic standard. Will, who is also the manager, now cuts my hair and aswell as being an obviously skilled and talented hairdresser is also one of the nicest guys i've ever met. The chore has now turned into a fun enjoyable experiance and i can only recommend and speak in glowing terms of this salon. It is for me the best in Chorley. I would never consider going anywhere else!


I have being having my hair cut by Will for over 9 years now & everytime you are made to feel welcome & important to the business. There is a great atmosphere at the Salon & I would highly recomend them....oh & Sam on reception is f.i.t!!


I was in this salon on Saturday and found it to be the best salon ever.The whole team were very friendly and helpful and the wash area was like you would see in a salon in London .The two owners are so nice to me every time I visit they make sure , I am looked after in every way. The staff are really funny and create a great atmosphere and whilst I am having my colour ,I love to watch them all work and create lovely hair cuts as they all know there jobs and get on with it ,you can tell they have been trained to a high level as all the clients are talking away to the stylists. This is so important to me as I have a very busy life and need to feel I get the best experience,when I visit a salon. Will the manager does a great job as my stylists always tells me about the day outs and nights he does for them and how they love working for him . I wish my boss appreciated me. All my family go to the salon now and a lot of my friends still working on a few.The young girl Lee is so lovely and knows my name making me the best coffee ever. Thank you all at Foran and Blake for given me a great salon to come too.


I've been a customer for 3 years. Haven't lived local for 2 years but travel over 30 miles from Wilmslow as wouldn't want to change my hairdressers now. Have tried lots of different hairdressers and always found a trip to the hairdressers hard work, until now. Salon is lovely, staff are really friendly and make you feel comfortable. Always pleased with my hair and the products that my hairdresser recommends for me. Would definitely recommend the salon!


My stylist is amazing and always listens to what i have to say, all of the Foran and Blake crew are very well trained. My stylist always dose my hair to exactly how I like it and I trust him all the time Will always cares how i feel about my hair, and every hair cut i have is even better than i image an it.


has a former hairdresser myself, i can honestly say its been the best salon experience i've had. From walking through the door your greeted by a friendly smile to the well wishes as you leave, from start to finish i felt well looked after! i've been going to the salon for over a year and every visit as been consistant, and never been happier with my hair, i would definatly give the salon a great big 10/10!! as there is nothing i can possibly fault!


I have been a customer for the last 3 years and this is the best salon I have ever been to. All the staff make you feel welcome and has great friendly atmosphere. I always leave the salon with an excellent hair cut and colour as i am very particular about my hair. They always listen to what i want and I have recommend my friends and family to Foran & Blake to, they too have had the same great experience that i have everytime. They are very professional and very caring to each other and clients and can feel this in the atmosphere. I will continue to be a loyal customer and my family for years to come.
