Our Story

This Is our story, This is where hair lives.

Vintage hair salon is an independent award winning hair salon in south Wales.

Our dream was simple..... We wanted to create beautiful hair whilst making our guests feel truly cared for. 

Three years on and we can say (with massive smiles on our faces) that we achieve that on a daily basis. 

Looking back, to when we first had the keys to our little salon on the hill. It felt like a massive challenge for us both. The building (although being full of character) needed a lot of TLC. 

We put everything we possibly could into it. We worked long days and made sacrifices as we believed in our vision so much. 

We built vintage from an empty shell, filled it with love,laughter and the overwhelming desire to offer our guests an extra special experience ( and an amazing tea menu!) 

We are extremely proud of what we have achieved so far and excited for what the future has in-store. 

Our vintage family is growing and their commitment and talent continuously blows us away. 

One thing is certain.. We will never forget our initial vision and dream, it’s what’s led us to this amazing reality!
