History of The Hair Base

The Hairbase was founded in August 1999, and we are pleased to say has grown from strength to strength. It was started as a one person operation in a room above a local tanning centre. Eighten years on, we are now a  twelve strong team, and after two relocations, we have now found our home here in prime location on Gorleston High Street.

In 2008, The Hairbase won an award for continual development at the local Spirit of Enterprise award, which we are extremely proud of as The Hairbase prides itself on education, and the continual development of the team, which then ensures you will receive the best care and advice for your hair requirements.

Not only has the team grown, but additionally so has the services. In 2013 we added Great Lengths extensions to our menu, of which we became finalists in 2014 at the Great Lengths Awards ceremony. The Hairbase boasts a high level of colour knowledge, as we are fortunate enough to have Emma, the salon owner, pass her Royal Colour Masters, which is the trades highest level in the world of hair!

In 2015, The Hair Base partnered up with the well know professional haircolour & haircare brand Redken and has now become a flagship salon , offering both retail and a full range of colour from their ammonia free Chromatics range to the latest Blonde Idol techniques. Redken Color is technique based and at the forefront of industry colour trends, providing clients with full grey coverage using ammonia free products, protecting the condition of the hair.
