     With over 25 years experience, ranging from salon management to teaching, I felt it was time to take the next step and offer more to my clients. The Hair Retreat is a small salon based in Charlton Adam, South Somerset offering a wide range of one to one hairdressing services from colouring, balayage, and highlights to Keratin Straightening treatments, perming and special occasion hair. Also gel polish are available.

    My ethos is to try and be as eco-conscious as possible using quality natural andorganic, vegan, cruelty free sustainable products as much as possible whilst still offering a high quality service tailored to each individual head of hair. I have sourced companies to work with whose aims align with my vision for my salon. I use British made where I can to reduce my carbon footprint. My colours and product range are supplied by a wonderful company called Yellow Professional; my gel polish by is supplied by INK London and I am pleased to be a member of the Green Salon Collective, which means I recycle everything I can, even your hair!

      Starting my career at 18, I am NVQ level 3 trained in hairdressing and ITEC in beauty and complementary therapies. I regularly update my skills with further training, most recently in colouring and cutting techniques.

I believe when my client is in my salon they are here for a relax, pamper and to feel beautiful. All of my services are tailored to what you, the client want. My consultation process ensures that I understand what you want and will endeavour to get it: with the range of care products here for you to use at home and Yellow colours your hair will be the healthiest it can be. I will book a consultation appointment to cover any compatibility tests we need to do, choose your colours and generally chat about what you want and your hair history prior to your appointment. This allows me to decide what I need to do to get the best results. Don't worry though, I am honest and will tell you if something isn't possible or won't suit you! All new colour, Keratin straightening and perm services require a pre-booked consultation appointment beforehand. 


     So, if you are wanting a nice, relaxing, peaceful appointment you've come to the right place to get your hair healthy and looking it's best every day.
