Welcome to Top Notch Hair Design

I opened Top Notch in 2003 at the lower end of the High Street and expanded the salon in 2007 to a larger premises opposite the market entrance where we are situated now. We were rated 5* by the Good Salon Guide in 2003 and have been reassessed over the years and still remain a 5* salon to this day.
My main aim is to offer a professional luxury service in a friendly atmosphere at affordable prices. The salons interior is to a high standard throughout, with comfortable modern furniture and professional salon equipment.

All my staff are trained in unisex hairdressing to a NVQ Level 3 standard. They are advanced L'Oreal colour technicians as well as having individual extended qualifications in specific areas such as hair extensions.

We use top of the range L'Oreal Professionnel colour and products throughout the salon; We also retail the L'Oreal Expert Professionnel range for you to achieve salon professional finish at home and provide you with complimentary home hair care advice.

We are a GHD approved stockist's selling and using the latest electrical range and products. Recently we have partnered alongside Nanokeratin becoming a certified salon, offering the latest Brazilian blowdrys available right now.
