Grateful Heads has been providing expert hair care to the men and women of Southend for over 30 years – and there are six very good reasons why they’re one of the best established, and most respected, salons in town.

Consultation – Before deciding to go ahead with your new look, you will receive a free, full consultation with your stylist – for colours you will also have a skin test, something that very few salons do. Your stylist will also talk to you about your likes and dislikes to ensure you get exactly what you want, and what is perfect for you.

Honesty – Grateful Heads firmly believe that honesty is the best policy. You can rely on us to give you truthful, informed and sensitive advice.

Friendly and familiar faces – Grateful Heads has nine stylists, the majority of which joined the salon as juniors, trained at the salon and remain working here.

Innovation - All Grateful Heads colour technicians are L’Oreal qualified. They are also specialists in Racoon hair extensions, experts at prom hair and creating beautiful wedding styles.

Technology – Thanks to our advanced computer booking system, you will receive a text message reminder 24 hours before your appointment – and we’ll even remember your birthday!

Personal Service – Grateful Heads go the extra mile for every one of our customers. Hungry? Somebody will pop out and fetch your lunch.

Don’t just take our word for it, Grateful Heads is rated a 5-star salon by the Good Salon Guide, one of just a handful in South Essex to earn that prestigious title.

Fantastic cut and colour with Amy as always. Friendly salon where staff always put themselves out to make sure you're ok. Also cut my fussy 3 year old's hair for the first time & it was an amazing job.
