Our story so far..

"An insight into the lil' lives of us"

We’re an independent Hair and beauty salon Based in Epsom

(we’d say more Ewell to be honest, but we’ll go by our postcode for arguments sake) and opened our doors in July 2015.


We’re a small team of balayage and beauty specialists here to cater to all your pamper needs from the latest colour trends to those instagrammable lashes.

 Whilst the salon is our daily workplace and a place we feel comfortable, we appreciate for you "Our future sassy client" you won’t get a feel for it until you make the decision to pay us a visit. We hope our social media presence reflects our vibe, but if you need a bit more convincing let us leave you with our


Mission statement:

“Enter our happy place knowing it isn’t just about the hair style or fresh manicure you leave with. That’s not all we’re about. We’re just us much about the experience and delivering good vibes as we go. Feel comfortable in our environment girl, cause we’re all ears and will respect who you are and whoever it is you want to be ✌🏼”

Meet the best team

We have an amazing small team at the salon (not biased at all, we really are all pretty fabulous humans) but until you come in and visit us for yourselves, we can’t expect you to be pyschic girl! So we’re each going to take it in turns to give you an insight into the lil’ lives of us with a few facts..

    as cliche as it may be. It really is the best feeling making you all feel amazing inside and out
