GALVIN BENJAMIN - New Brit run Salon is offering us all 50% off cuts, colours & Brazilian Blowouts. I visited them last week and now have great cut! I found James to be very personable, he's a definite cool cat with great personal style himself. I was bored of going to different stylists at Floyd's - It's really nice to have a British guy handling your barnet! I feel you need to speak the same language when it comes to your hair. Sta tuned for the salon opening in February. I feel it's gonna be a cool place to hang and get your haircut at the same time. But for now it's cool to get yer haircut in the comfort of your own home.
