Yes, we do hair extremely well, that goes without saying. We have top stylists who can colour, cut, style, movement and all aspects of hairstyling... you name it, we are expert at it. But what's more important is that we understand you and what you want.
Understanding people is the beating heart of our business, that's why we have clients who have come back for 20 years plus. We have our finger on the pulse of the latest trends, but we understand that not everybody wants the latest fad. We are here to understand what experience you want and we deliver.
We are here to give you a London Salon quality hair appointment without the hassle, cost or pretension!
We have beauty rooms at both of our salons, which boast highly qualified therapists, so you can have a full-on pamper, all in one salon.
And you don't have to be a woman to enjoy the Muir and Kerr experience. We have a men's room with fully qualified men's haircutters.
