About the employer

Set in the beautiful and traditional market town of Thame in Oxfordshire in a stunning grade II listed building it’s probably easy to imagine why we here at Zen find it so easy to be inspired and passionate about hairdressing.

Now add to that a bubbling, warm, caring atmosphere with absolute commitment to our clients and you might think we may be too good to be true.

Here at Zen you’ll find a passion that can only be described as a true love for everything we do. We work hard and focus on all the aspects of our training to ensure that you receive the absolute best in styling and colouring techniques, but we also recognise that without our clients we would not have the opportunity to practice our craft, so we are absolutely focused on making every visit a memorable experience.
