The Hair Base was founded in August 1999, and we are pleased to say has grown from strength to strength. It was started as a one person operation in a room above a local tanning centre. Twenty years on, we are now a thirteen strong team, and after two relocations, we have now found our perfect home here in prime location on Gorleston High Street.
In 2008, The Hair Base won an award for continual development at the local Spirit of Enterprise award, which we are extremely proud of as we strongly pride ourselves on education, and the continual development of the team, which then ensures you will receive the best care and advice for your hair requirements.
Not only has the team grown, but additionally so have the services. In 2013 we added Great Lengths extensions to our menu, of which we became finalists in 2014 at the Great Lengths Awards ceremony. The Hair Base boasts a high level of colour knowledge, as we are fortunate enough to have Emma, the salon owner, pass the highest level of hair colour certification with two seperate brands.
We, as a salon, aim to break the stigma of hairdressers being places people are scared to walk into. We are all about the friendly environment and being as open, relaxing and inviting as possible. We are all professionals who are highly skilled in the art of hairdressing but our main goal is the client and achieving their desired personal evolution. However, the future of The Hair Base could branch off to other elements, with hair forming ‘The Base’.
We are very excited about the future of The Hair Base with 2019 being our 20th birthday and a totally brand new salon, so keep your eyes peeled as we're not done yet!
"We are the base for our community to lead and support your personal evolution."
