Salon and services access information
Entrance: 88cm wide (narrowest doorway) with push button access.
Level access throughout, all furniture can be moved.
Hairdressing chairs have a width of 50cm. We have 2 alternate chairs which can be used. One has a width of 51cm and is slightly softer and the other has arms which are not attached to the frame at both ends so can accommodate some clients more comfortably. Please let us know if you feel concerned about the size of the chairs for your body shape or weight – we can make sure one of these chairs is booked for you if you’d prefer.
The weight capacity for our standard chairs is 375lb which is 170kg or 26.5 stone
We have two hair wash basins, one with a movable and adjustable chair.
We have a private room for haircuts which require more discretion HOWEVER there is VERY limited availability – please enquire BEFORE booking!
When booking, you are invited to share your pronouns and any access information you would like your stylist to know. There is no expectation for you to face the mirror or to chat, please use the access info to indicate if this would be helpful for you, or let your stylist know at any time.
Our toilet is gender neutral and wheelchair accessible. There is no hoist or changing facility.
We welcome assistance and therapy dogs. Please do not touch or interact with assistance dogs unless invited by the person they are assisting. As we have had clients with severe allergies or phobias, we suggest that you do not bring companion animals other than assistance or therapy pets, or to at least get in touch first so we can let other clients know.
