Areas We Cover


Virginia Water








Hair Buns

This quick and easy hairstyle is perfect for your busy back-to-school lifestyle - just whip your hair up into a bun and you're ready to go. Not only this but it's also a trendy look that looks good with anything (even your school uniform)! For a more intricate upstyle – maybe for a prom, party or social – book in for a consultation so we can create a beautiful special occasion hairstyle for you at one of our hair salons.

Cool Wavy Hairstyles 

Tousled, beach wave hairstyles are a big trend at the moment. To achieve gentle waves, use some styling mousse and a bit of scrunching - the messier the better! More structured waves are also an amazing look but usually take longer to achieve through the use of a heated styling wand or straighteners.

Braids and Plaits

Beautiful braids and perfect plaits are all the rage right now. Dutch braids, fishtail plaits and halo braids are trending and are great because you can make them as messy or prim and proper as you like! If you can't master these looks yourself, come in and we can do this for you!  

We offer a professional braiding service where we can put your hair into a beautiful braid to get you looking super cool for your music festival or hot hot hot for that summer prom or party.  We’ll even add glitter or hair chalk to your plait or braid to give you an on-trend festival hairstyle!

Our Braid Bar service costs £25 which includes glitter or hair chalk.  Choose from a wide range of braided hairstyles including Dutch braids, Halo braids, Boxer braids, French Plaits and more!

Rainbow Hair Colours

Your new look will be more dramatic if you opt for a new hair colour. We offer every hair colour in the rainbow and more! We can talk you through the process, assess your hair, and come up with a hair colour that suits and is perfect for you. But remember, hair colour requires up-keep so if you can't afford to keep your colour looking fresh and vibrant, talk to one of our lovely colour technicians about semi-permanent hair colour alternatives.
