We are proud stockists of the country’s leading brand of hair extension suppliers, Great Lengths. Hair extensions are the perfect way to create long, flowing locks in an instant – but they can do so much more than simply add length. They can be used for creating volume, adding dashes of colour.


We are delighted to use cruelty free haircare & colouring products in our salon. All Aveda hair colour products are not tested on animals & do not contain any animal-derived ingredients. Add & enhance tone, as well as refresh, revive and add shine to your locks !

Fran has been doing my hair for a couple of years now. She is just amazing. So skilled. Listens to my suggestions and offers alternatives . ( she’s always right!). And she’s really friendly too. She’s a credit to the salon.
I've been going to Evie for lash extensions for a year now, not once unhappy with my experience. My lashes last so long and look perfect every time. I highly recommend Evie, she ensures you're comfortable, happy and I always leave feeling more relaxed.
Linda Cook
I had my first facial with Evie. A fire and ice facial which also included a neck and shoulders and scalp massage. I cannot say enough good things about Evie. She is simply amazing. Professional, friendly, very easy to talk to and just makes you feel incredible no matter what treatment you have. Myself and my daughter also have Evie wax and tint our brows. Melanie cuts our hair…we just will not go anywhere else now that we have found the best salon and beauticians in Peterborough. Thank you x
