A salon with a difference

Marie Case Tidey

A very experienced local hairdresser with an incredible reputation in Billericay and Shenfield; having worked until recently in the areas biggest salon group. She is a colour specialist and has managed the group’s most successful salon and team of 15 for 9 years. After trying to work for another employer she found she could not control her environment and provide the high standard of hairdressing and service that she demands of herself and the team around her; the obvious choice was to do it for herself, build a salon with another great team and create a new hair story.

I’ve been a customer of this same hairdressing salon since I moved in to New York. The main stylists didn’t change and they’re still just as good as few years back. God only knows, how many great things these ladies did to my hair over the years…
