Having first opened their doors in 1987 The Salon has been lucky enough to see London Bridge City change from a muddy plot of land to the thriving metropolis it is today. Weekends were a bit like a ghost town, so they closed at 3.00pm on Saturdays. But now, to fit in with everyone’s longer working days and hectic lifestyles, not to mention the huge amount of people coming into the area on a daily basis, they have to open 7 days a week to keep up with demand!
They have seen the skyline around them change beyond recognition and have watched More London, City Hall and The Shard turn the London skyline into one of the most photographed landmarks in Europe. They are now looking forward to the new London Bridge Station development completing the latest phase of the area’s regeneration.
Although they are tucked away in the Lower Walkway connecting Hay’s Galleria to Cottons Centre The Salon is proud to be part of this ever evolving and always improving vital hub. Many people have referred to them as “A Hidden Gem” and they are happy to still provide a place that people can come to relax and enjoy a bit of “me time” away from the hustle and bustle of Tooley Street!
The small, one unit salon, was originally set up to offer the office tenants a great hairdressing service that would be right on their door step and since opening in 1987 they have continued to grow and adapt to the vast changes that have taken place in SE1. Employing just 3 stylists in the beginning they expanded next door, when the dress hire shop became available, to offer beauty services too and are now the longest standing hair and beauty salon in the area with 23 members of staff.
The Salon remains a L’Oreal Premier Salon, Dermalogica and CACI clinic and has recently added the celebrity favourite – Skinbreeze Oxygen facial to their treatment menu.
