The Good Salon Guide is the only independent, nationwide scheme for assessing professional standards and services within the hairdressing and beauty industries. Listing around 2,000 salons across the UK, Ireland, UAE and Malta the Good Salon Guide is the place to find a high quality hair or beauty service.
The Good Salon Guide was launched in 1993 in response to consumer demand and although we started with hair salons we now work across hair, beauty and training.
Salons are professionally assessed against objective criteria and rated accordingly. If a salon meets a set of minimum standards, it is given Registered status. Thereafter salons are rated as 3, 4 or 5 Star. Alongside the star rating we also award recognition for Training, Barbers, Blow-dry, Extensions Artist, Colour Expert, Creative Excellence, ECO Salon, Trichologists, Wig specialists and Freelancers.
The Good Salon Guide is the ONLY independent guide to standards and services within the hair and beauty industry and is seen as a Kitemark of quality, similar to the rating system used by the AA / RAC for the hotel industry.
