Adrienne Harrison Cottrell

My hair was in desperate need of an overhaul and Jo knew exactly what it needed. I'm delighted.

Alison Patrick

Jo is very good at what she does and treated my daughter and myself with great courtesy on the morning of the wedding at Armathwaite Hall xx

Deedee Ray

I never went to the same hairdresser more than once until I met Jo. She is amasing! If you want to feel great, relax, have a chat with some one who really does care about your needs and THEN leave with a spring in your step, then go to Jo Mark! I am finally proud of my hair and it's all down to her!

Lisa Robinson

Jo runs a wonderfully warm and welcoming salon, and it's obvious that hairdressing is more than a job to her. Both she and Katy work very hard to create a friendly and professional environment, where customers feel at ease and in good hands. Jo always knows how to get the best from my hair, and each time I go, she gives me a cut that is fabulous and fuss-free. I live in Hexham, and there are plenty of salons closer to home, but nowhere i would rather go than JoMark!

House of Hair is a lovely salon, Jo is very welcoming and takes time to listen to exactly what you want - and if your not sure she's full of wonderful ideas. Jo is extremely talented, creative and very passionate about hair dressing... You can tell by the finish of all her work. While having your hair done you'll feel like your having a chat with a friend! Jo is now the only person I'll trust with my hair, I'd recommend her to anyone!

Elaine Hargreaves

Jo has a beautiful salon with a friendly atmosphere. I always have a good laugh with Jo.
Jo is very professional - giving excellent advice on styles and products. She also did my hair for my wedding which was fantastic, all 3 of us - she never stopped all morning! I would recommend her to everyone :) xxx

Amy Mitchinson

Professional, friendly and talented hairdresser. Jo's clients are a very important part of her life. She has done wonders to my hair, including a fantastic job on my great lengths extensions. She is good at giving advice and very helpful in achieving your hair goals. She is only a text away....even at 10:30 at night!!! Not to forget, the apprentice Katy Bradley. I've seen some finished results of her clients' hair and she is also very good at her job and she is adorable :-) they were both born to be professionals and work very hard. Thank you both. Xx

From the very first time I stepped into Jo`s salon, I felt relaxed and is safe hands. Hair dressers can be as nerve wracking as going to the Dentist!
