Here at our Unique Salon in Bishops Stortford, looking after you is our number one priority. We work with our clients to ensure that their hair is in the very best condition it can be. We will advise on the latest fashion and market-leading products including colour, treatments, styling products, and shampoos and conditioners that will leave your hair happy and healthy. If you are fortunate enough to have luxurious locks and don’t need to do too much to keep it looking great, we can help you maintain it. However, if your hair is a little unruly, colour, chemical or heat damaged, we have the know-how and product range to rejuvenate it.



Choosing a stylist is one of the most important decisions you will ever make if you want to have great looking hair. It is important that your stylist really understands what is important to you and what you are trying to achieve. Having a trusting and ongoing relationship with your stylist means that they will soon understand the uniqueness of your hair in terms of growth, condition, colour, style and overall health. Having a stylist that you visit regularly and can gain that confidence in, goes a long way to achieving great results. Every stylist at Unique enjoys long and lasting relationships with our clients.
