For this week’s #FinditinExeter we caught up with Amy, co-owner of Mirror Hair Design, to find out all about this city-centre, independent salon.
Mirror Hair Design is a family-run hairdressers located on Exeter’s North Street, that was opened by Amy and her mum Theresa in January 2017. Having both worked in hairdressing since finishing school, this mother and daughter duo decided to take the exciting step and open their own salon after working together in other Exeter salons throughout their careers.
Mirror Hair Design offers everything from cutting, styling and balayage, to colouring, hair extensions, bridal hair and gents and children’s cuts.
The salon uses Dutch brand Keune for products and colours. Like Mirror Hair Design, Keune is a family-run business, and the salon is proud to support a company that doesn’t test on animals and offers employment to individuals with mental disabilities.
The team of six, which Amy says are like one big family, also pride themselves on keeping up to date with the current hair trends through education. They regularly visit the Keune Academy at Dart’s Farm for training on the latest techniques and products in the industry. Amy says the trend for balayage and lived in hair will continue right into summer.
Mirror Hair Design is a homely, relaxed space for clients to escape the outside world for a while. They also provide a longer appointment time than standard salons, so you never leave feeling rushed.
The salon takes walk ins, but if you can, do book in advance to avoid disappointment.
If you are a student or NHS and emergency services staff member then head to Mirror Hair Design on a Monday or Tuesday to receive a 10% discount when you present a valid I.D.
Mirror Hair Design is open Monday – Saturday, varying times.
