I have been a client of Alexa’s for 12 years and on every occasion she has delivered treatments in a personal and friendly, but professional manner. Her knowledge of treatments and products is excellent and her recommendations and advice are much appreciated. She tailors treatments to my individual needs when necessary and al- ways goes through the after care/routines that I should be following. I always look forward to my appointments, thoroughly enjoy them and leave feeling relaxed and pampered – just what is needed.
I have known Alexa from the start of her career as a beauty therapist. She has al- ways been happy to be flexible with appointments to accommodate my very busy work schedule ensuring that I get treatments when I both need and want them. Alexa recommends treatment for me and a program to suit me, my skin and my lifestyle.
These are always appropriate to me personally and not aimed at simply making a sale. After care is always recommended to me irrespective of how many times I have already had the treatment. Alexa has provided me with first class treatments, I would mention especially the times when I have been recovering from various operations where treatments have no doubt contributed to my recovery. I have no hesitation in recommending Alexa to my friends and colleagues.
Alexa enables me to find an oasis of calm in a hectic life. When Alexa branched out to another venture some 30 miles from me, I chose to follow her there despite the travel because of the excellent customer care and professionalism with which she op- erates. It is clear to me that Alexa is passionate about high standards and about passing this on in her teaching. I have had treatments with those that she has trained and its noticeable how her high standards are demonstrated by these therapists.
I met Alexa two and a half years ago after the previous therapist left the Salon. From the first, I found her courteous, professional, caring and extremely sensitive. We got on like a house on fire.
Alexa’s communication skills are exceptional as I am disabled and thus she will explain each step of the treatments that I have. She is very patient and is always happy to answer my questions and advises me about my skin. I trust her completely and as well as looking after me, she loves my dog. I have treatments every two months, and with a smile she is always welcoming.
Alexa is very committed to the business as she has a passion for looking after people’s skin, and always wants the best for all her clients. I don’t believe she will leave the industry as in my opinion she was born to it.
For my recent wedding I booked Chris (for hair) and Alexa (for beauty) to look after myself (the bride!), my bridesmaids and my mum. They were a great team and so easy to get on with. Chris and Alexa both listened carefully to what we wanted but also came up with some great ideas and advice to help make us feel extra special. On the day they came out to the venue and were a real calming, friendly influence. They helped keep everything flowing on time and created a wonderful start to the celebrations. I felt it was very important that I still looked like me, but with the most amazing makeup and curls complimenting my beautiful dress. They made sure it was the best I’d ever looked and their hard work lasted throughout the day. My Mum and bridesmaids all looked absolutely stunning and were really pleased with the results. We all wish we could have them to do our hair and makeup every day! I am more than happy to recommend them for anyone looking for an utterly reliable team who will do a great job.

I have been a client of Chris’ for 33 years. Over the years I feel his hairdressing has gone from strength to strength and have alway been delighted with the outcome. The staff are always friendly and I love the ambience that is created in the salon. I remain a loyal client because of how good I feel when I leave.
I have been a client at Burghley for over ten years. They offer high quality professional treatments within a very friendly family atmosphere. Lynn on reception is always willing so helpful and always cheerful. Alexa has been my beauty therapist throughout and is so professional in all she does and makes a visit to Burghley a wonderful experience.
I have been a client of Burghley for a number of years. I have always found the staff to be very helpful, friendly and willing to give advice if and when I need it.
We have been clients of Burghley Academy for over twenty years and have no hesitation in recommending it for either hair styling or beauty treatments. Both are carried out in a highly professional manner by well trained staff and in a relaxed and friendly environment.

I love my treatments with Alexa, she always makes all my treatments so special and relaxing. It’s a great atmosphere in her room, and we always have a good old natter! I always look forward to my appointments, and I’d recommended Alexa at Burghley to everyone!
Hidden in Cumbergate, in a corner of Cathedral Square, in one of the oldest buildings in Peterborough, is Burghley Hair Beauty Academy. The original beams in the interior give a special ambiance. Also at the back of the building the roof consists of timbers and huge, clear, glass windows. So consequently as you have your hair washed you look straight up to the sky! Magical! Chris Parsons, the co-owner of the salon, has cut my hair for over 10 years. He listens carefully to your ideas-and adds his own, based on his knowledge of your personality, life style, face shape and hair type. As a result of this he always produces an amazing haircut, stylish and understated, but always one that will lift your spirits as you leave the salon. I regularly receive compliments about my hair, more as the years pass. I would highly recommend Burghley to any one who is in search of a stylish, individual haircut. The surroundings and welcome simply add to the pleasure of the experience.
It is always such a delight going to Burghley for hair or beauty treatments. I am always made to feel very valued as a client and the fact that the stylists do everything themselves means you have their undivided attention. All the stylists are highly skilled and while I have been using Burghley for many years I have never had a bad experience and am able to relax in the knowledge that I will look good when I leave.
