about us

hair is full of fantastic hairdressers that are well trained and do beautifully executed hair. It is a fun and friendly place that plays great music from radiohair and has great coffee and customer service! It is situated on Leigh road in Leigh-On-Sea, Essex which is easily accessible by bus, train or car.

hair was opened In 1969 by the legend that is Terry Abbott, who trained at Sassoon’s and in the day was without a doubt the Sassoon of Essex who changed everything forever. Terry is still on the tools knocking out great tasteful haircuts on Saturday's and is bang on top of how the shop looks and runs.

Over the years many amazing Hairdressers have walked through the doors in Leigh Road and some have gone on to do great things on the global stage. Many have been trained and many more will be trained continuing on from what was started back in 69. We now have new systems, new technology and new ways of doing things but as we all say, it's a work in progress. At hair we take pride in our continual professional development and consistently have training sessions every week. we use the most modern forms of training available such as www.myhairdressers.com, www.mhdacademy.com and from spring 2016 we will have www.mhdpro.com to use as well.

We have special offers throughout the year and select stylists have a new client intro policy that is simply unmissable. Book in and enjoy totally free treats (mention treats on the website) blo dry, Monday's,Thursdays and as you leave you will receive your treats@hair card. The treats card has all sorts of cool stuff like half price cuts and colours, free treatments and for our many loyal clients please recommend a new client to us and collect your own treats @ hair card.

Have Great Lengths @ hair. Gold Status Salon.

@ hair we have Hannah and Jenny who are specialists in the application and maintenance of Great Lengths hair extensions. Whether its extra length, extra thickness or a bit of both, contact one of the girls and pop in for a coffee and a chat. It’s a free consultation service and we have all the answers to your questions.

Heres one: Where does Great Lengths hair come from?
This question is posed by women all around the world who are considering hair extensions and their ethicality. We are justifiably dubious about the origin of the hair used for the majority of extensions. Most companies cannot guarantee the origin, quality or traceability of their hair as it is usually purchased from a third party and not sourced directly by the extensions company. Great Lengths, however, offers the highest quality 100% real human hair that is 100% guaranteed ethical. Unlike all other extensions brands available in the UK, the company sources and processes every single strand, meaning they absolutely guarantee the origin, journey and treatment of the hair. Great Lengths hair is 100% traceable making it completely unique in the extensions industry. Great Lengths source their hair from the Hindu Indian temple Tirumala where the traditional religious ceremony ‘tonsuring’ is carried out. Entire families (men, women, children, grandparents) make the pilgrimage to the temple to have their hair shaven off as an offer of thanksgiving that is completely voluntary and often takes place before or after a momentous, joyful event. The hair is then legitimately sold to Great Lengths and a full time Great Lengths employee based in India ensures that the money which is given to the Temple is funnelled directly back into the local community to fund medical aid, educational systems and other crucial infrastructure projects. Great Lengths take every measure to ensure the sourcing, purchasing and processing of the hair are ethical and transparent. They are the only extensions company to employ a full time team member in India to ensure their exacting standards and ethical policies are upheld.
