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.

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.

Chic hair Studio - COVID-19 Guidance and Protocols

Before You Visit the Salon

In order to help reduce the spread of COVID- 19, and increase the safety of yourself and others during your visit, we ask you carefully to read the following procedures.

PLEASE RESCHEDULE if have any of these symptoms, however mild.

  • Have you had a recent onset of a new continuous cough, high temperature or noticed a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell.
  • Exposed to anyone with suspected or diagnosed COVID-19 in last 14-21 days.

In the Salon

  • We will now require all your most recent contact information, we have now been asked to collect this by law and put on our safe salon software system, this is to work alongside track and trace.
    If you have downloaded the new NHS covid 19 app you can now check in at Chic with our very own covid 19 code (let’s help stop the spread of coronavirus).
  • All equipment and surfaces will be disinfected before and after each client.
  • All towels will be washed on a high wash.
  • All sections will be spaced out to ensure social distancing of OVER 1 meter with risk mitigation.
  • Magazines will no longer be available during your service. Please bring your own reading material or use our free WiFi.
  • Refreshments will only be served if you are having a colour service and given to you in a disposable cup while your colour is processing. Please make sure your mask is placed back on once you have finished your drink or the stylist has to come over to check the colour.
  • We will open the door for ventilation throughout the salon as much as possible (clearly not on cold days)
  • Please make payment and forwarding appointments during your service wherever possible. Please note that it is advised to make a few forwarding appointments due to the staff client ratio and availability.

My staff

  • All members of staff are doing twice weekly lateral flow tests to keep you all safe.
  • My staff will be wearing visors and masks at all times, please bear with the stylist if she has to break off to take a drink as wearing visors with masks all day can be very difficult.
  • All staff will no longer give you a consultation face to face, sat down, they will do this at a distance through the mirror!!! sorry as this goes against all what we believe in at Chic, but we need to follow the guidelines stated by the government. During your shampoo at the basin and during blow drying the stylist will keep talking to a minimum to prevent aerosol transmission (which is when you speak loudly over something) But during the rest of your treatment we will be chatting as normal.
  • All staff will use hand sanitiser before every client and during your appointment.
  • we only ever have 3 stylists in at one time, we are also controlling the numbers of clients in at one time. If we feel or the government feel we need to control this more we may adapt our working hours slightly.


  • We are so excited to see you all but please no hugs or kisses.
  • Please try to keep your distance while talking to us at the reception, keep a distance from other clients and please ask if want to use our rest room.
  • Please refrain from touching surfaces, should you require products please ask a staff member to assist.
  • Please stay seated in your designated workstation and avoid unnecessary movements in the salon, unless told to do so.
  • You will be asked to wear a mask and sanitise your hands on entering and leaving the salon (Automatic hand sanitiser is on the wall next to the door). If you can not find a mask we can provide you with one for a small charge. If you are having your hair coloured please bring 2 masks as your mask may get colour on it and need to be changed.
  • You don’t have to wait outside please come in and the stylist will advise you where to sit. Please do not arrive too early to your appointment. You are asked not to bring family members or friends to your appointment unless they have also booked an appointment slot
  • Please keep all your belongings with you, we do have a coat stand which you can use, but to prevent contamination please bring a bag that your coat/jacket can be stowed away by your feet.


  • A plastic carrier bag or large handbag so that your coat/ jacket can be stowed safely at your feet.
  • A mask-  2 if having a colour service. (A mask can be purchased for £1 in the salon)
  • Reading material

These guidelines may change as the pandemic hopefully eases. We will keep you updated at all times

We are still accepting cash and card payments and tips.

Thank you for your loyal continued business and appreciate your support during these difficult times.


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.

Should you experience any symptoms relating to COVID 19 within 14 days of your last visit to the salon, you should inform us immediately, get tested, then we can work with track and trace.

By submitting your details below – means you have read and understood the above information and agree to the terms and conditions of your visit.

“I fully understand the frustration of maybe the experience not being as relaxed and enjoyable as it usually is, but we have to work along side the government guidelines to prevent the spread of this pandemic and be able to provide a safe environment for both you, my guests and my staff.  I personally are so excited to be welcoming you all back.

Myself and the girls have missed you.”
