Sustainable Beauty at Julia Lampard Hair Salon
Julia Lampard is a salon nestled at the top of Milkhouse Gate, opposite Guildford Castle. As you enter the door, you are welcomed into a glamourous yet relaxing space, where jazz music is played in the calm spacious salon.
Julia and her team have a holistic approach to hair care, to not only make clients feel valued and nurtured, but also to provide sustainable beauty that doesn’t impact the environment.
The team only use products by Davines and Keune; independent companies who formulate, test and make ammonia and paraben-free products in their own laboratories.
The ethos of the salon is to reduce waste and eliminate single use plastics across everything they do. Julia’s clients can even buy the products used in the salon and then refill the bottles when they are empty.
Another service dear to the team, is to provide clients who come for the salon’s wig service, a dedicated consulting room with its own facilities for washing and cutting. Customers who have suffered hair loss as a result of cancer treatments or alopecia can try on wigs from a huge range of styles.
“We want people who are undergoing a personally challenging time to feel 100 percent safe with us,” Julia says. “We don’t simply supply and fit a wig, we care for the well-being of our clients and try to keep them looking like their normal selves.”
As well as leading the field in her innovative approach to cutting, Julia has gone the extra mile for customers by designing and patenting a muslin wig liner. Exclusive to the salon, the liner is designed to increase the wearer’s comfort, keeping the wig secure and the scalp cool.
Lovely staff, there was a mix up on the booking site however they were more than willing to accommodate. They did a lovely job as I had no idea what I wanted. (I know nothing about hair) so I think the lady had fun with a blank canvas. Love the result and have never had my hair feel so light weight after (I have very thick hair)
Fantastic salon! My mother had her wig fitted and styled with Julia and it was ground breaking in tackling my mother's diagnosis. All the staff are so kind and knowledgable, it was such a pleasure to be a part of the appointment. So excited for the new salon!
Salon looks amazing, it has taken blood, sweat and tears to reach your dream. With the excellent work you've done with your clients in the past, you have an exciting future.
It's a pleasure to visit the spacious new salon which also has private consultation rooms. I enjoyed the comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. Julia's styling and product advice is valued along with her staff and their attention to detail, which has kept me returning for over 10 years. PS The newly installed air conditioning was very welcome in the recent hot spell!
