Award Winning Aveda Hair Salon

TEMPORARY NOTICE: The salon is temporarily closed on Sundays over the next few weeks. This is due to exciting new refurbishments taking place, so all our guests will soon be able to enjoy their time here even more than they already do. More details to follow soon!


We are absolutely over the moon to have re-opened, and are loving seeing so many of you back to the salon again!

Please rest assured that the safety and wellbeing of all our guests and staff is our top priority. So while you can still expect to receive the same friendly and relaxing experience as always when you step through our doors, we now have a number of safety measures in place, in accordance with government guidelines, to ensure the salon continues to be a safe space:

PPE: Masks are compulsory for everybody inside the salon. You can either wear your own mask, or collect one from us when you arrive. This safety measure is intended to keep all our guests and staff safe, so please excuse the mask look and know that we are smiling underneath them! We are also providing disposable gowns for anybody who would prefer to wear one.

Sanitisers: We have prepared a sanitiser station for when you arrive, equipped with sanitiser gel which we ask everybody to kindly use when you enter the salon.

Social Distancing: All guests will be seated at least 1 metre apart from others and appointments are being staggered to minimise the number of people in the salon at one time. We cannot allow guests to use our waiting area, so we kindly ask that you come back if we are not quite ready when you arrive.

Refreshments: We are now only serving bottles of water and fresh coffee, which will be provided in disposable paper cups. Feel free to bring your own coffee jug/flask if you wish, and you’re welcome to bring your own bottle of wine with your own glass if you’d like to 😉

Unavailable Services: We are not currently providing any sensory journeys, this includes and head, neck and shoulder massages and hand massages.

Entertainment: We are not providing magazines but instead we are making a few iPads available free of charge, so that you don’t miss out on your precious quiet time to catch up on the latest news/fashion/gossip! Or please bring your own reading materials to enjoy while you’re here.

Bathrooms: We have had several enquiries about whether guests will be able to use our bathroom facilities, so just to confirm and reassure you, yes of course you can use them! We will however ask that you please sign a disclaimer if you do wish to use the bathroom facilities.

Prices: Our prices are increasing slightly. We hope that you understand this is not something we wanted to do, but unfortunately all our stockists have been forced to increase their prices due to the impact of COVID-19, so it is something we need to do in order to keep the business running.

Salon Development: We are in the process of introducing an exciting new area to the salon shop… it’s something I’m really looking forward to sharing with you all very soon, but please bear with us in the meantime as there may be some slight disruption while we are in the middle of carrying out the building work, but only to the décor, and it won’t affect the wonderful service you receive here.

Retail: You may notice that our retail space is currently empty due to refurbishment. But we are all stocked up with all our usual products available, so please just ask us if there’s anything you’d like.

Salon & Equipment Sanitation: The salon is being regularly and thoroughly cleaned throughout the day using antibacterial products, with a particular focus on high-contact areas. All members of staff are required to wash their hands between seeing different guests. We are sterilizing all equipment after every guest and we only use disposable towels.

Health Checks: We ask that you please do not come into the salon if you or anyone in your household is unwell or self-isolating. All our staff are being continuously monitored and have been briefed not to come into work if they feel unwell.

As I’m sure you can appreciate, we do have a very big backlog of appointments to get through, but we are doing our best to meet your needs and get you all back through our doors as soon as we possibly can. I like to think of this next phase in our journey as ‘The Great Hairdressing Catch Up!’… it may be slightly different but we’re all back here for you again.

We have missed you all so much over the last few months and I genuinely can’t wait to see you all again!
