About Bridge Street Hair & Beauty

Find out more about Bridge Street & meet our team

Led by our owner George, our salon first opened its (charmingly crooked) doors in April 2010 with a vision of bringing contemporary and creative hairdressing services to the local area.

Over the years we’ve added more services to our offer and welcomed an experienced team of staff to help us meet our goal of providing a full menu of quality hair and beauty treatments all under one roof.

We’re proud of the reputation we’ve built as a quality and reliable service that our clients can trust.
