Then & Now

The story of Haringtons’ success

With Haringtons gearing up to celebrate our 30th anniversary this year, what better time to look back and reflect on what has made this award-winning hairdressing group the success it is today.

It all began with an idea from hairdressers Robert Smith and Simon Shaw to bring a taste of London to the suburbs which led to the opening of our first salon in Maidenhead in 1984. It became an instant success so two more successful salons were opened in Marlow and Windsor.  Building on this momentum, Haringtons acquired more salons, and a merger resulted in David Lambert joining the group as a Director.

Haringtons’ hairdressing academy turns out the best hairdressers

ROBERT 6Today Haringtons is one of the most progressive salon groups in the South of England, with 12 busy salons offering the very best in hairdressing for women and men.

With support from L’Oréal Professionnel we have been able to grow and offer the best hair products to our customers.   Our luxurious salons also offer complimentary consultations for cut and colour, relaxing head massages with all appointments and a truly amazing menu of refreshments.

In the fiercely competitive environment of the hairdressing industry it takes talent and determination to reach the top.  

Our own internal training academy turns out some amazing talent so you can rest assured that every member of staff is highly trained in the latest hair cutting, styling and colouring techniques and is working hard to deliver the best in customer service.

All new staff are aware of the Haringtons way of doing things, ranging from answering the phone and presenting a cup of coffee to consulting with the client.
