About the employer

"Actually, it's not really about us, it's about you..."

Most people will say they love their salon because it's about getting to know the people who work there. Usually, it's a favourite stylist or beauty specialist, and you rely on them to know what style suits your hair, and what beauty treatments or products work best for you.

However at Harold George we are confident that every one of our fully trained team are of a high enough standard to be able to look after you in much the same way you're used to, should for any reason, your usual stylist isn't available when you absolutely really need them.
