About the employer

Mavericks was started in Feb 1999 by Sarah Charlton, who was previously managing the Kevin John salon in Stratford upon Avon. In November 2013 we decided to move location, after 13 years, we decided to move to larger premises that would give us a salon with more space and light. Sarah now as we’ll as her duties in the salon, works for REF Vegan Hair care as Education manager, this is an up and coming Swedish hairdressing brand. Check it out on The salon was set up with one thing in mind, and that was to do everything differently fro other salons in the area. So we adopted the strap line “Doing Things Differently”. The salon believes in now just looking after the customer in the salon, but also ensuring that they can recreate the styles at home, we this the 720 theory. We create this by ensuring our team are highly trained, we have a training session every week. These training sessions make us stronger and stronger but also allow us to generate new ideas and styles. We believe in the client totally, in fact we call all our clients guests, because that’s what they are to us. Each guests gets a personal consultation before hairdressing work is to start. Plus each appointment is 45 mins long for a cut and blow dry, allowing us not to rush the haircut and after care advise. We strive to best the best hairdressers in the area, through training and more training.
