The ultimate Treatment is an evolution in straightening and repair. Our semi-permanent treatment has been designed to transform even the most difficult hair into stronger, straighter, repaired hair that’s easy to maintain and gorgeous to the touch.

The unique combination of low pH proteins will renew dry, damaged and weak hair, transforming it completely into healthy, straighter and stronger hair that both looks and feels amazing. These incredible repairing agents rebuild the hair with added strength, vitality and shine providing a smooth, soft and straighter finish that lasts for up to 4 months, gradually fading from the hair.

Guaranteed to halve the time and effort to blow dry your hair. The results are amazing, you will not be disappointed.

Quiet Chair

The chic team is full of brilliant conversationalists, especially Claire. It is an important part of being a hair stylist, and most of our clients love coming in to have a friendly chat.

But at the same time, we understand people lead busy lives where they may have been communicating with people all day or looking after active children and need some #quietmetime.

A trip to the hair salon is supposed to be relaxing, and while for some people that means catching up on what’s been going on in their lives, but not everybody is comfortable with small talk and want to relax and maybe just read their book or our up to date magazines.

Chic has taken the embarrassment away for those people who don’t enjoy small talk or want to talk. You just choose the #quietchair when you book your appointment.

We will still talk to you about your hair and what you want, but apart from that, you will be able to enjoy the experience in silence and read a magazine uninterrupted.

This option is only available on a Tuesday, when you’ll receive one to one with your stylist in peace and quiet.


Wherever possible please give 48 hours notice for cancellations as failure to do so will incur a cancellation charge.

Meet The Team

Claire Marsden-Dyson

Founder/Managing director

I established Chic in 2006, being the backbone of the business, I am passionate about my role and I thrive on working hard. I strive to ensure that the Chic brand maintains its core values of ‘consistency, professionalism, passion, and expertise’ and I am confident that these values are delivered each day by my team that I treasure as the heart of my company.

I especially love the people aspect, I feel incredibly lucky to know so many wonderful people who absolutely make my day – I’ve never worked a day in my life – I love my job.

I use all my social skills at work during my busy week, so in my spare time I love hiding away in the country side with my family and my hens.

I can not wait to see what the future holds for such a talented stylist.

In the salon

  • You will be advised to wear a mask during your appointment, this is to protect yourself and others. I feel we need to be responsible and respectful to everyone around us, especially my staff, who may feel uncomfortable if you do not have a face covering on, which may cause them anxiety. We are a very close contact profession in a small environment. For everyone who can not wear a mask due to a medical reason we ask if you could wear a visor, these don’t restrict the air flow making it more comfortable to breathe, I will continue to re view this situation. But for now I feel it’s the right thing to do and I respect you all for supporting my decision.
  • All our equipment, surfaces, towels and gowns will continued to be cleaned and disinfected throughout the day.
  • Magazines will be available to read along with the use of our free Wifi
  • Refreshments will only be served if you are having a colour or olaplex service. (So your mask can be safety taken off)
  • We will open the salon door for ventilation so the salon could be cooler than normal

My staff

  • All members of staff are doing twice weekly lateral flow tests to keep you all safe.
  • My staff will be wearing masks at all times.
  • All staff will use hand sanitiser before every client.
  • We will continue to isolate for 5 days even though we had all our vaccines if someone within our house hold has tested positive.


  • Please wear a mask during your appointment, if you are exempt from a mask please wear a visor.
  • Hand sanitise before entering the salon (Automatic hand sanitiser is on the wall next to the door outside)


    • We will be working hard to ensure the risk of contamination of covid 19 is reduced, however there is no guarantee that it will be 100% safe.
