Catherine's Clients

Enhancing each client’s natural beauty not for days or weeks, but for months

Michelle De Bruyne

“I first visited Catherine a few years ago on a recommendation from a friend who was already a client of Catherine’s. Catherine was amazing, she gave me advice on the tones that would be most suitable for my hair type and enhance my skin tone etc. My hair turned out beautifully, better than I could’ve imagined, since then I’ve never once looked back or considered another salon. My colour looked so good, my husband even had his hair done too. The actual experience of going to Catherine Boden is always incredible, everyone is so well looked after, it’s always a wonderful atmosphere!”

Conna Walker

“I’ve been having my hair coloured by Catherine for about 8 years when she first developed the Hollywood ColourBlend® technique. Catherine’s salon isn’t local to my home in LA; however, it’s always worth the trip because I know I’m going to someone who knows my hair, what suits me and truly cares about giving me the best results. I can not recommend her highly enough."

Stacey Forsey

"I originally came to Catherine a few years ago on a referral from a colleague and close friend. I was really worried about having my hair coloured after experiencing hair loss due to health issues. It had fully grown back but I was still very concerned about how my hair would react to colouring. Catherine was very knowledgeable and patient with me. She explained everything to me in detail, which gave me the reassurance I needed. It’s been three years since I started having my hair coloured by Catherine and it’s in the best condition it’s ever been. She really is a hair magician. I definitely wouldn’t consider going to anyone else."

Hannah Renee

“I’ve been going to Catherine Boden for many years and would not consider anyone else. I care about my hair on a personal level, but it’s also a huge part of my professional appearance. As a makeup & fashion YouTuber, I always want to look presentable, so I always go to people I genuinely trust. The Hollywood ColourBlend is a technique like no other.”

Gemma Merna

"My experience at Catherine Boden Ltd has been nothing but wonderful every time I have stepped through the doors. Such a beautiful salon, lovely staff and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my hair now. My colour is perfect for me, it last and my hair has gone thicker and stronger since going. With having blonde hair my hair hasn’t always been in great condition but since Catherine has been doing it it’s the best it’s ever been. Customer for life 💕"

Faryal Makhdoom Khan

“Being in the public eye means my appearance is very important and I change my look often. Catherine understands Asian hair and always seems to be able to transform my hair and achieve exactly what I want. Taking it from dark to light in one appointment. I honestly wouldn’t trust anyone else to do my colour.”

Lucy-Jo Hudson

“I absolutely love Catherine, she is amazing at her job! she’s such a perfectionist when it comes to her work and I love that! I genuinely love the colour of my hair.... the colour blend that she does lasts for absolute ages! She’s taken my roots back to my virgin hair so I don’t need to go back every 4-6 weeks for a root touch up, so i can go months without going back to see her, which is a bonus now we’ve been in lockdown for bloody ages haha. She does the colour blend so that you only need to see her once every 6 months which is just amazing! She is also a gorgeous human being and I’ve loved our little chats.... her team are also just as lovely and every time I take a trip to my hairdresser I feel like I’m being pampered for the day! Thankyou catherine and your gorgeous team for always looking after me. Lucy-Jo-Hudson xxx”
