About us

A very experienced local hairdresser with an incredible reputation in Billericay and Shenfeild; having worked in the areas biggest salon group. She is a colour specialist and managed the group’s most successful salon and team of 15 for 9 years. After trying to work for another salon she found she could not control her environment and provide the high standard of hairdressing and service that she demands of herself and the team around her; the obvious choice was to do it for herself, build a salon with another great team and create a new hair story.

New Fabulous Hair

I cannot rate Ellie G enough, having been recommended to Ellie she is brilliant. I had too many silver hairs coming through! Ellie has covered them, blended with a previous colour on my hair. She explained everything in depth and the end result is perfect. Ellie also cut my hair which is great. Thank you soooo much Ellie G and see you again very soon.

This is my first time ever having colour through my hair, was so nervous at first! But I was made to feel so welcome by Ellie, she has done an AMAZING job on my hair. I couldn’t be more in love with it… She also styled it beautifully and gave me a lovely haircut! I am over the moon and so grateful! Thank you so much for such a great experience! :)

What can I say? Alot. I went in looking like I really needed a hair cut, came out feeling embarrassing great but humble. I was given 5 star treatment by every member of staff. What an amazing team. The owner is always welcoming, friendly and attentive, friendly and makes you feel fab. Thank you! I was really feeling my age but had a spring in my step. Not too shabby for an old girl. The staff really do create miracles.

Booked my son (22 months) for a well needed hair cut but unfortunately he refused to let anyone near, they very kindly rebooked us in for a few days time. Everyone was so kind and patient and helped me to distract him and successfully cut his hair. Definitely recommend for children’s hair cuts and I will be back with my daughters too.

Thank you so much.

Marie always cuts my hair and I have stayed with the salon for many years, in spite of moving 25 miles away! I know I can 100% trust all the stylists to do their very best for me. Marie manages her salon with great professionalism. She prides herself on high standards and my goodness , she always delivers! The staff are trained very well and there is an important emphasis on politeness, which is often absent in other salons. The salon is beautifully clean and the decor is gorgeous, with additional seasonal changes which add to the fun ! Great salon . Great stylists! Thank you so much!
