First visit, won't be the last

Had a lovely first time experience at Anthony James. Joanne was very welcoming, attentive and enthusiastic. I fancied a change from blonde highlights so after my initial consultation we put together a plan to introduce lilac into my hair. I found a picture online for my preferred colour and style and the end results were so similar. Thrilled with my new hair colour, I may be even more daring next time, knowing I can trust Joanne to do a fantastic job. Thank you.

Anthony James a great salon

I have been a customer of AJ for years now and whenever I try other salons I never get the service I do at AJ. Staff are polite helpful understanding and welcoming. It is a haven in a hectic town centre. I am treated like a VIP and always welcomed back. Marcus

Top quality Salon
Nicky Chance Thompson

I have been coming to this salon for over 12 years and in my view it is one of the best salons in the uk. Fantastic well trained staff who cut and colour to a very high standard. The salon was redesigned and it offers a quality, relaxing and modern feel which I have only found in salons like Nicky Clarke in London. It took me a long time to find this salon and I have recommended it to other friends and family who are now regular customers. Jo and Gary are a great team who research and invest in the best products and provide training to all of the very friendly staff. I can't recommend it enough.


I've been to Mark three times now and my hair hasn't been so well cut and easy to look after for years. It was a bit of a mess when I first went having been ruined by someone I went to after my usual hairdresser went on maternity leave. The mess had been sorted and I just love the way it now does as it's told, even after walking the dogon the moors in the wind! Thanks Mark!

Transition from Dyed Dark Hair to Natural Grey? No Problem.

Anyone wanting to transition from dyed dark hair to natural grey – without having to have their hair cut short, or look pretty horrendous while the dyed hair grows out - will probably be aware of the obstacles to be overcome to achieve this. Not an easy exercise and one that many hair salons shy away from. This was my predicament, until I had a very in-depth consultation with Jo. Not only is Jo SUPERBLY talented where hair cutting is involved (I liken it to “precision engineering”), she really knows the science involving hair colouring and any pitfalls that could be encountered doing this kind of transition. The result was amazing and the cut was, as usual, immaculate. If the above resonates with you, I strongly suggest you visit Anthony James. The whole staff are the most talented and welcoming people I’ve ever encountered in a hair salon. Nothing is too much trouble, from the minute you walk in the door to the minute you walk out – feeling fantastic!
