Yuri

Manager / Owner

Hi, I’m Yuri. I trained and worked at the Strand Palace Hotel in London for Alan International, one of the biggest names in hairdressing at that time.

My aim was always to bring that high-standard of hairdressing to the local area and I have achieved that with an award-winning salon.

Over the past 30 years I have worked with various clients including personalities from the television and sports world, and my work has been featured in trade and international consumer press.

I aim to give clients a unique hairdressing experience through personal consultation. I listen, look at image, face shape, skin tone and lifestyle.

I am the salon’s Kerastase expert, specialising in all hair and scalp concerns and work full-time in the salon.
