Hair by Service – Not recommended by Matthew Luke Professional

The industry has a huge variance of what services it provides, how long each service lasts and how much each service costs. From trims to full cut and blow drys, from root touch ups to a full head of colour, the variance has created confusion for our guests and the value for what they are ‘buying’ does not exist.

Guests are unsure exactly what they need, they are unsure which service to choose and 9/10 hairdressing consumers are unhappy with the outcome due to the service being ‘text book’ or not bespoke enough to achieve what they need or want.

There are times when clients NEED a treatment in salon, when a client NEEDS extra colour, toning or glossing or a guest NEEDS a cut to complete the colour.

These are all things that our clients truly WANT… But very easily get left out, or not done because of price, time, or simply lack of knowledge as to why this is important.

The result… The client pays a sizeable bill in the salon and she leaves not 100% happy or certain about what she needs or wants as key services have been chosen to be left out.

Salons cannot expect their clients to return or recommend a friend when clients leave, as they are simply not getting what they needed or wanted


We believe at Matthew Luke Professional – Only by Time

As Professionals, we must maintain a guest’s highest level on condition at all times.


As Professional Colourists, our job is to manage hair colour to look like it never needs doing.

We call these Our Aims


Hair by Time – Recommended

Time allows us to simply give our GUESTS what they need and want. It allows us to book time and give EVERYTHING the hair needs to meet our 2 Main Aims.

We have one price per hour – providing everything your hair needs. 

It means all Guests receive Treatments, such as Olaplex and Redken Chemistry (to maintain the highest level of condition at all times).

It means all Guests receive the correct amount of colour featuring Redken Chromatics (to make hair colour look like it never needs doing).

All Ambassadors work 1-2-1 with guests during the full duration of their appointment, utilising the best products Redken have to offer and our Ambassadors are trained to educate guests in everything we do, helping our guests understand the value of hair and what we do.

 Stylist Gareth says: 

“My guests enjoy their visits more as its more of a relaxed experience – they are also being educated throughout their journey so they now know what is happening every step of the way. They definitely like the working by visuals rather than by a service!”

Our Key Laws

100% Colouring – we will always colour 100% of the hair at all times.

No Colour without care – treatments at every opportunity.

On Time. Leave Gorgeous. (respect your time, gorgeous is our minimum)


The Results

Our Guest ALWAYS leave the salon with HIGHEST level of condition.

Hair colour never looks like it needs doing.

Guests can have what they NEED and what they WANT.

Stylist Rachel says:

“We deliver a high end bespoke experience which is what an ML guest loves. They know we are around and they love to be educated. They also love the fact that we are different and there are no hidden fees”.


Matthew Says


“Why would clients not return, when they have everything they need and want when they leave the salon? Why would clients not want to introduce their friends when they leave the salon 100% happy, every time?”
