Sam Park Hair

I honestly believe that you feel better if you know that your hair looks good even in a pair of muddy jeans and some wellies, which is probably what you’ll be wearing a lot of the time in December! Sam Parks is a great place to start for gorgeous locks on a day to day basis. Her talented team pride themselves on delivering high standards of client care, styling, cutting and colouring.

If you’ve got some special party nights planned and want to put your hair up before letting it all down, then the team have lots of experience and ideas in this area too.

Owner Samantha has created an oasis of calm and relaxation in her luxe East High Street salon where she shares her love of hair and beauty with her talented team through a programme of continual training and development. Her efforts were recognised in 2014 when Sam achieved the prestigious ‘L’Oréal Colour Specialist Degree’, and she is now the first ‘Colour Specialist’ in this area.

Stylists also offer a wide range of L’Oréal and Paul Mitchell home care, styling, and GHD hair products. Find out more here

Be Salon

Harsh winds, central heating and plummeting temperatures mean skin can become dry, chapped and washed out. If you don’t have the time (or the budget!) to book a pre-Christmas holiday in the sun why not book a Tan & Stand sunbed or a Sienna X Spray Tan session at Be Salon to give yourself a fabulous pre-party glow.

Be Salon is also a one-stop-shop for all your beauty requirements offering a wide selection of nail, lashes, waxing, facial and massage options. Star treatments include the Opi Luxury Pedicure which features cuticle work, shaping, exfoliation, hydrating mask in heated mitts and a glamorous polish of your choice to finish.
