The Team

Nikki Blanchford - Salon Owner & Director

I started in the salon at just 14 years old while I was still at school & knew straight away   that this is what I wanted to be! I took over the business in 2007 & finally put my own name above the door in 2012. I feel that our standards have never been higher and I am very excited about the future!


After leaving school I qualified at Exeter Hair College & since have always attended regular courses to keep up to date with modern techniques and styles - Even with so many years experience, I always relish improving myself.


I live in Crediton with my wonderful husband & two gorgeous daughters, I love the community we have & hope that in some small part my salon adds to that.
