Helen - Salon Owner

Helen

Salon Owner/ Manager

After managing a very large London salon, Helen had always wanted to have her own so that she could create an individual salon experience and do things better! Helen moved to Dorset with her family and was introduced to AVEDA.

In December of 2006 Salon on the Square opened, initially as a Hair Salon and then in December of 2008 upstairs opened to two Beauty rooms and a specialist colour room.

Helen remains on the shop floor and regularly attends business and hair courses at the AVEDA Academy in London. The Salon continues to grow and Helen is always striving to attain perfection and feels that attention to detail is very important. She welcomes you to Salon on the Square.
