The Wingate has done it again! I have been going for years for various spa services and each time have had the best experiences. My last visit was to try their hair services with their Master Stylist Adriana. Again my expectations have been exceeded. Who knew that even the process of getting your hair washed could be so blissful (shout out to Hannah, whom I now want to adopt). Well done ladies.

I moved to New Hampshire from PA and so dreaded trying to find a new salon. I searched all over for a salon who I thought I could trust and used my Loreal Inoa product. Then I came across The Wingate. I am so glad I did because I have had awesome massages, haircuts & colors, eyebrow waxes, and also Mani & Pedi's. I am so glad I found your Salon & Spa. I look forward to each return!

My boyfriend and I were both a bit leery about having a massage, but phew, are we glad we did! Getting a massage together is now a yearly Valentine’s Day plan. The room is dark and peaceful, the therapists are amazing, and having my boyfriend with me made it so special. Don’t hesitate!
