About

Nick Brain Hairdressing is one of Baths’ longest established Salons, starting out in the City back in the early 1980’s. Nick began working on his own servicing a few local clients in Bath. 

As the demand for Nick’s talents increased, the Salon and the Team needed to expand and the business moved to York Street close to the Abbey in 1998.

With further awards and accolades to come, the company went from strength to strength with further expansion into a second York Street Salon opening in 2005.

The Salon has become synonymous with contemporary styling and attention to detail with our clients enjoying a relaxed yet professional atmosphere in the hands of our experienced stylists and colour technicians.

The Team

We have always been passionate about nurturing home-grown talent and promoting staff development. All our graduate stylists attend courses at both the Wella London Academy and the Tigi Academy as well as regular in-house training nights.

Senior stylists also keep up to date with refresher courses held by these Academies.

We have a blend of young enthusiastic stylists combined with those with many years experience within the industry. Hover over the stylist images to learn more about our amazing staff.
