Thanks to feedback we’ve received from students, we are aware that there is a lack of local hairdressers who specialise in Afro-Caribbean hair. Here at The SU, we wanted to provide an inclusive space where all students can have their hair done. 213 The Salon will have barbers for everyone as well as dedicated hairdressers for Afro-Caribbean hair. The salon has a rotation of different hairdressers who will be working at different times.

Once things get more established, we will be adding a timetable to this page. Our aim in the long term is to add more services to the salon in addition to hair, so keep watching this space!

How to book:

Booking options depend on the hairdresser, so see below for options.
